If you are a careful reader of this newspaper--and, of course, you are--most likely you are aware that a large industry now exists in this country whose sole purpose is to generate numbers for public consumption. There are numbers for the unemployed, for babies with colic, for millionaires who own yachts in excess of 50 feet in length. We are consoled by these numbers. That's why newspapers print them every day.

Robert Jones' column "Fouling the Air With Numbers" (Part A, Feb. 8) was salty and impressive. However, I apparently did not explain clearly the methodology used.

A coalition of builders, manufacturers and labor unions charged Tuesday that a plan to clean Southern California skies will burden industry with costly and cumbersome regulations that could force at least 350,000 people out of work. The South Coast Air Quality Management District should crack down on smog-producing vehicles, the main source of the region's air pollution, rather than place unreasonable demands on industry, which accounts for one-third of the problem, said William T.

To build or not to build the extension of the Long Beach Freeway? That will be the question as hundreds of freeway opponents and advocates gather in Pasadena on Monday before the California Transportation Commission. For the first time in nearly a decade, the commission will hold a formal hearing on whether the freeway should be extended from the Los Angeles-Alhambra border north through South Pasadena and into Pasadena.

A soy sauce maker quits Los Angeles County and opens up shop in Nevada. A Glendale fiber company shutters a 40-year-old factory and heads for Colorado. An Orange County auto parts firm plans its future over the border in Arizona. California, long seen by business as a place to get rich, is facing an unusual insult: An assortment of employers, fed up with high costs, red tape and other frustrations, are quietly giving up on the state and taking their jobs with them.
