It is a bit surprising that a lengthy article on "the aural insults Angelenos now suffer" omits the most egregious one: the ghoulish air patrol used by the Los Angeles police. F. DAHAB and N. HAYDN Glendale

IN A lengthy article about the spirit and physicality of Los Angeles in film ["The 25 Best L.A. Films of the Last 25 Years," Aug. 31], I see no allusion to the fact that without location managers, these films would not exist. Nowadays, location managers bear the burden of finding, clearing, booking, permitting and managing film locations. It's an unsung job, but on the few occasions that a major article touches upon this subject, it would seem to me that location managers rate at least a mention.

William Montalbano's soccer article of June 15 incorrectly implied that English hooligans were responsible for two tragedies in England--the Bradford stadium fire and the crushing deaths of 95 fans at Hillsborough stadium. Still that should come as no surprise, since his lengthy article (the kind of soccer story that The Times always seems to have space for) was essentially a titillation piece. I expect a Times sports section article to be about something substantial and current, not sensationalist muckraking tabloid journalism.

Re the photo accompanying the article "A Thing to His Credit" (by Henry Fuhrmann, May 25): To add insult to injury, the man behind the camera is not Chris Nyby, disputed director of "The Thing," but Russell Harlan, who was the director of photography. I know, because I was the script supervisor on the picture. RICHARD KINON Beverly Hills Whether Fuhrmann's uncle directed this movie is a tiny footnote in cinematic history and would never have been the subject of a lengthy article were it not for the fact that he happens to be a Times editor.

I have been amazed throughout this election campaign at the pro-George Bush puff pieces you've run as news. Nikki Finke's article struck a new low ("Can Backing Bush Hurt a Celebrity?" Oct. 17). The lengthy article went on about the alleged fear of Hollywood celebrities to declare their pro-Bush sympathies. The evidence? Statements from a Bush campaign official. Corroborating evidence? None. A major quote in the article from the extreme right magazine the National Review talks about "liberal sharks" in Hollywood and the percentage of liberals who form the Hollywood Establishment.

APART FROM THE FACT THAT THEY CAN HATCH WITHIN MINUTES AFTER contact with water, brine shrimp are unappealing creatures. They're ant-sized and translucent and bear a striking resemblance to sperm. Yet brine shrimp packaged as "Sea Monkeys" are currently sold as children's companions, and portrayed on their boxes as pink, pear-shaped simian creatures with spindly legs, paunches and coy smiles. They are one of the most impressive achievements in the annals of marketing.

I found it ironic that the same week you ran the lengthy article on Santa Barbara, with Gene Hackman's picture prominently shown on the cover, there was an article in the real estate section about one Gene Hackman who was selling his Santa Barbara house so, as his realtor said, he could be closer to Los Angeles.

I cannot believe Jerry Hulse wrote such a lengthy article about Cambria and never mentioned Barbara's. One just does not go to Cambria without partaking of breakfast or lunch at Barbara's. The oatmeal muffins are out of this world. The omelets are of great recipes. Service is great and prices inexpensive. The atmosphere is homey-country. I am getting hungry. Guess I'll light out for Barbara's. It's worth the trip. EARL FRANKLIN Torrance

I met Mary Gauthier on a flight from L.A. to Nashville last year. I was delighted to see the lengthy article on her work ["Enough About Me," Feb. 24]. Her lyrics are powerful. Mary sent me her CD after we talked on the plane about politics and life. I've played "Mercy" for everyone who would listen. Even my 21-year-old who has never listened to country and western music grabbed the CD and kept it in her car for months, enjoying the powerful lyrics and melancholy of Mary's music.

You have periodically carried informative stories about different facets of the growing peace movement. I believe that Kathleen Hendrix has achieved a new high with her lengthy article about Beyond War. She traced the origin and development of Beyond War, summarized their program, highlighted their recent activities, explained their educational methods; then she gave brief portraits of some of their staff and supporters. An excellent analysis which, I trust, has been of value to many other Times readers.
