Your June 9 editorial "This Is an Exit Worth Taking" argues that the exit exam has made schools identify struggling students and provide them with needed support. This claim is based on a flawed report of the state's independent evaluator, Human Resources Research Organization, or HumRRO. HumRRO's evidence comes from 34 principals of schools that offer strong opportunities to learn -- schools where 95% of the teachers hold a full teaching credential. By contrast, only 74% of teachers hold this credential in the 144 California high schools where more than 40% fail the exit exam.

I was very pleased to see that the simple phrase "very sorry" expressed by the U.S. government led to the release of the 24 Americans being held by the Chinese (April 12). However, I wish the same U.S. government would say it is "very sorry" about the way the Chinese treat their own people. We heard no expressions of sorrow when dozens of children were killed in an explosion in a Chinese elementary school where students were forced to work making firecrackers in order to pay for their education.

I can't tell you what a terrible disappointment I felt in reading David Reyes' article regarding the attempt to evict John Rogers (March 28). The actions of the landlord, Wycliffe Bible Translators, are indefensible. As a Jewish-Christian, I feel embarrassed and ashamed that a "Christian" organization would ever undertake such actions, especially under this present set of circumstances. Here we have a serviceman, with two young, impressionable children, being shown how some people express Christian tolerance and love.

Sophisticated aerial spray systems, which the Navy contends were mistakenly sold to a Northern California firm, were approved for sale to the public, a military surplus official at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station said Monday. "We questioned the code and were told it was correct," said John Rogers, head of the Defense Reutilization Marketing Office at the station. The code, Rogers said, is used to designate whether military equipment that has been declared surplus can be sold to the public.

John Rogers found the daughter he lost in 1973 asleep on the floor of a hut in Vung Tau on the coast of Vietnam south of Ho Chi Ming City. He had no doubt that she was the child he had named Gloria Jean shortly before leaving Vietnam for home. There are not many black Asian girls. Since finding his only child last year, the Honolulu travel agent has dedicated his life to helping Amerasians, the offspring of Vietnamese women and American servicemen born during the Vietnam War.

The Cult Awareness Network regularly receives complaints about Insight Seminars and MSIA. Many of these complaints are identical to those detailed in the series. Others involve pressure on individuals in the workplace or at school to get involved with the Insight Training. Here in Chicago, a number of people have decided, after reading the Los Angeles Times series, not to continue with the Insight training scheduled last week which they had originally enrolled in. Your articles have brought out information about the deceptive and unethical conduct of Roger Hinkins which the public has the right to know about.

Even the Mystical Traveler had to admit: Oct. 5 was a particularly trying day in a trying season. Earlier in the fall, California's Senate race had taken a weird hop, with national media and Democratic spin doctors suddenly blasting Arianna Stassinopoulos Huffington, wife of Republican candidate Mike Huffington, for her involvement with spiritual teacher John-Roger and his Church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness, or MSIA.

What was the purpose of the article about John-Roger, apart from airing hearsay and gossip more suited to a tabloid in the guise of an informative albeit highly inaccurate feature? John-Roger's home, for instance, is certainly comfortable; to imply it is anything more is exaggeration. It seems appropriate for John-Roger to fly first class, given the tremendous number of hours he spends traveling in the services of the organizations he directs. His late model Lincoln Continental is a step up from the brown Chrysler he drove for years, but a far cry from what is considered a luxury automobile in this town.
