WASHINGTON -- Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich has thrown himself into a latest cause: Support of hunger-striking postal employees who oppose cuts to the Postal Service. The congressman from Ohio played host on Monday to postal carriers, mail handlers and others outside the Capitol, pledging he would vote against efforts to shutter post offices and cut employee benefits as Congress seeks to close budget shortfalls in beleaguered postal operations. “There's been an effort to dismantle the Postal Service,” Kucinich said at the morning gathering.

Re "Kucinich seeks Cheney impeachment," April 25 It's about time! Thank you, Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio), for showing courage, backbone and initiative. This gives me hope that there may be some justice after all. Moreover, this will set a precedent that political servants who are arrogant, impudently lie and wreck lives, condone torture, misuse taxpayer funds to help their friends, skirt or skew our laws and ignore or try to expunge ordinary people's rights will not be ignored but treated like any other citizen who commits similar crimes.

Thank you for "Kucinich's Vibrations Feel Good to Malibu Crowd" (Dec. 23), even if it was on Page A29. Frankly, I'd given up hope of seeing much more on this quality candidate, Ohio Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich, because of his long-shot status. Not all long shots are created equal. Some are prescient, standing for public policies that -- if implemented sooner -- will preclude later disruption. But they must be seen, they must be heard, they must be read.

Re "With a Pile of Money, Dean Ups the Ante," Aug. 31: Ronald Brownstein writes of "a Democratic establishment still concerned that Dean's unrelenting opposition to the war in Iraq might make him an easy general election opponent for President Bush." Thousands of us believe that [former Vermont Gov.] Howard Dean's attack on Bush's agenda, including the preemptive war on Iraq, is the reason for Dean's phenomenal rise. Other Democratic invertebrates showed their true strength in supporting Bush and his war plans.

Re "Democrats Fire Away on War, Mideast," Sept. 10: You got it right at last: Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) received loud applause for saying, "I say what we need to do is ... bring the U.N. in and get the U.S. out" of Iraq. Kucinich has been getting louder cheers than most other candidates in the debates, and pretty soon people will know about him. Soon former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean will be overshadowed by the true peace candidate, Kucinich. "Imagine" our nation at peace. It's easy if you try. Mary Jacobs Los Angeles After watching the Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night, I can only ask, "Is this the best they can do?"

Call it the un-impeachment hearing. The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing Friday that it insisted was not about removing President Bush from office. But critics of Bush's policies couldn't pass up the chance to accuse the president of a long list of impeachable "high crimes and misdemeanors." Leading the way was Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio), the former Democratic presidential candidate who has brought repeated impeachment resolutions to the House floor against Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
