Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and his lackluster campaign have to do more to assure a victory in November. Many of the people who are disgusted with President Bush may not vote at all unless Kerry can offer more than just being "not Bush." Those who do not vote will only help the ones who firmly support a candidate -- and who will vote. Although, for this Republican, I consider the job Bush and his cronies have done. For me, being "not Bush" is enough to get me to vote for Kerry. Mike Kirwan Venice Michael Ramirez accuses Kerry of being a flip-flopper (editorial cartoon, Commentary, May 15)

I returned the Wednesday night after John Riley's piece on me (Oct. 6), and there were more than 500 letters waiting from people who had read the story; many were from children, and many from children now disguised as adults. I will answer them all, but I do need stamps, and there are a few who will not hear from me because they forgot to put a return address in their letter. Whether you hear from me or not, I'm looking out for you all the time, so be good, and don't forget to leave me a cookie and some milk.

John Riley should be shot. Instead of filling his profile of Preview Henry (Nov. 24) with the silly babble of Hollywood flacks, perhaps he should have considered a little compassion. In order to foster the myth that Henry's absence from the first screening of "Heaven's Gate" foreshadowed its commercial failure, he trivializes the reason why the guy was a no-show. The circumstances, a burglary at Henry's home that resulted in the death of his mother and a lengthy hospitalization for Henry, were among the saddest I've ever heard.

Two men who resisted eviction by a militant religious sect were shot to death Thursday outside an apartment complex the group had recently purchased, authorities said. The slain men, Anthony Brown and Rudolph Broussard, reportedly were fighting their evictions by the Yahwehs, or Hebrew Israelites, who assumed a $480,000 mortgage in buying the property Monday. Brown and Broussard were shot after they confronted two carloads of men outside the complex, Mayor John Riley said.

Isn't it bad enough that your new L.A. Times Magazine is nothing more than another advertising supplement? Do we now have to be subjected to still another nonsensical piece of drivel, "Made for Each Other" (by John Riley, Nov. 10), the nauseating claptrap saga of one Kelly LeBrock and her martial arts boyfriend? This sort of thing is usually found in your once-esteemed Calendar. Come to think of it, am I sending this letter to the proper department of your paper? It's getting confusing!
