It's Nov. 7 and I just saw my first Christmas commercial for 1988 and all I could think of is "They're baaack!" JOSEPH N. FEINSTEIN Sherman Oaks

Re "Suffering in Silence" (Jan. 10): Of the 237 "Teen Talk" programs I produced and hosted, none was more difficult to staff than our show on acne. It was no problem finding pregnant girls, prostitutes or drug addicts willing to appear on the show. But young people with acne felt such embarrassment, pain and low self-esteem, they refused en masse. Through the efforts of a dermatologist in Santa Barbara and with the promise the show would not air there, we were able to find six youngsters willing to tell their stories.

Frank Clancy's "Breaking Away" (June 21) reminded me of a quotation I use to introduce lectures: "No one is completely worthless; they can always serve as a bad example." My dad was everything I knew I never wanted to be: aloof, disrespectful and unloving. But the worst examples can be blessings in disguise if we can rise above that person's mistakes. JOSEPH N.

I recently returned from San Jose, Costa Rica, where I was touring. In the daily newspaper was an ad which states: "Notice from the Ministry of Public Security to all foreign visitors, residents and Costa Rican citizens: If you feel you have not been treated with respect and dignity by the civil authorities of this ministry, please notify us by contacting the minister's adviser." The name of the adviser and his telephone and fax numbers are listed. Is it beyond our ken and/or imagination to emulate such regard for our citizenry and guests?

I am a teacher who wishes to express my deep appreciation to Art Buchwald's extreme sensitivity in paying tribute to teachers, generally, and Christa McAuliffe, specifically ("Christa McAuliffe Left Legacy on Earth," Feb. 6). This is the first time I have ever read Buchwald on the serious side. His profound depth of sadness helps me understand further how and why he is the clever, humorous satirist he is. JOSEPH N.

Al Martinez produced a gem in "Three Guys Talking About Death" (Aug. 22). The depth, sensitivity and understanding haunt me still. Cobalt blamed the senseless death on Rambo. Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, the pioneer on death and dying in the United States, might have said it was the "Hitler" in the boy who pulled the trigger. Whatever the name might be, isn't it time for the entertainment industry to take a long, hard look at the heroes they're setting up for American youth to emulate--and cease and desist?

Your article on New York City's friendliest small hotels was excellent, however you missed one that goes out of its way to be much kinder and gentler to its guests than many I have experienced: the Parc 51, 152 West 51st St. Everything there is top drawer: cleanliness abounds, excellent 24-hour service, beautiful rooms and a fine restaurant. Shame on you for passing it by. JOSEPH N. FEINSTEIN Sherman Oaks

I was graduated from W. H. Taft High School in the Bronx, but the words of our alma mater ring loud and clear for our superb Academic Decathlon team of Taft High in Woodland Hills: Hail Taft High, let thy praises ring, To thy glory faithfully we sing. From one Taftite to several others (and their parents included), you've done good! Real good! JOSEPH N. FEINSTEIN Sherman Oaks

What America saw and heard from Jack Palance was the culmination of total frustration and anger of a man who will just not accept being considered washed up. The man possesses the talents to turn in a sterling performance; the fact that he has added some gray does not diminish his acting capabilities. I really admired the curmudgeon and his rather ribald, sassy way of expressing himself.

One of the great people of America has died. I knew Leo Buscaglia (obituary, June 13) from reading all his books, listening to a dozen lectures and interviewing him on my "Teen Talk" program. His life was the personification of his writings, his classes and his public lectures, for he was love incarnate. He gave of himself selflessly; he wrote passionately; and his hugs--well, those hugs were like no others I've ever had. I saw him last a few months ago at a concert at the L.A. Philharmonic.
