I'm sick of hearing Gov. Gray Davis criticized for his fund-raising efforts. After all, wasn't it the Republicans who so opposed campaign finance reform? They're just mad because Davis has beat them at their own game. Mark Lee Goldberg Los Angeles

So the Democrats will run the House and Senate for 17 days before the official swearing-in ("Democrats to Get Senate's Reins for a 17-Day Trot," Dec. 31). I'd like to see them push through as much legislation as possible, including things we'll never get from the Republicans, like real campaign finance reform. Republicans have shown by their behavior (from the Supreme Court all the way down to Florida sheriffs who intimidated African American voters) that common decency and "the right thing to do" were never an option.

The point of book reviews, at least as I understand it, is to give the reader a critical appraisal of a novel. Apparently, your reviewers believe their job is actually to synopsize the story and reveal every plot twist. Case in point: Michael Harris' recent review ("From Depression to Wisdom," Jan. 5) of "Duane's Depressed," Larry McMurtry's concluding novel in a trilogy. Harris felt it necessary to tell us everything that happens in the book--and to reveal that a major character gets killed midway through.

With the latest success of such films as "The Flintstones" and "Maverick," Hollywood no doubt will continue its frantic rush to make into a movie virtually every old television show that ever aired. With everything from "Gomer Pyle" to "Green Acres" now being developed, the number of available remakes may soon dry up. Should that happen, there is an ample list of failed TV pilots that could inspire a potential blockbuster.

Ellen Goodman's unjust criticism of the successful David Helfgott world tour does a disservice to artists of all mediums ("Add to David Helfgott's Trials the Hollywood Happy Ending," Commentary, March 10). People are flocking to hear Helfgott play Rachmaninoff, not because of his technical brilliance, but because of his interpretation. If Helfgott mutters and misses notes, it is not part of the "freak show," but the manifestation of this man's afflictions. Do people love Van Gogh because of his technical brilliance?
