If an award were available for the masterful art of giving something to the American people without giving anything whatever, then Bush is the hands-down winner for all time. At first I thought our vice president's new savings idea to be a clever spoof. But now I believe he's serious. Let us, for the moment, examine his idea. First, we deposit $1,000 into a special account which we don't touch for five years. Second, we can extract about $12 of deferred taxes.

Like President Bush, I almost fell to the floor (in laughter) as I read your hilarious report ("World Press Tries to Unknot Tale of Bush and the Pretzel," Jan. 16). With an official account as loopy, nay, twisted (forgive the puns) as this, one wonders what the real story (the one they're covering up--wink, wink) might be. As an avid "West Wing" watcher, I must admit that relapsing, remitting multiple sclerosis crossed my mind. Thanks for the comic relief.

Your July 4 issue contained only three letters on the subject of the Burbank Airport Authority's revised proposal for a new terminal, all from Valley Village residents and all critical of the airport and authority. One was from the president of the Valley Village Homeowners Assn. I am sick to death of these homeowner groups and their spoiled, meddling, NIMBY mentalities. How dare they (a vocal but very, very small minority) presume to speak for the majority of the people who live and work in Valley Village.

Re "Iraq Offer to Open Sites Excludes U.N. Team," Nov. 28: Saddam Hussein has outfoxed us once again. His latest scam in demanding the substitution of foreign diplomats in place of United Nations inspectors will provide a human shield against military action and further wear down the resolve of the U.N. This once again begs the reassessment of the U.N.'s current status as an instrument of peace with actual and real weapons protection for all nations...

Recently the California HMOs announced with great fanfare their "voluntary" adoption of "independent" external review systems (Dec. 3). As the applause dies down, it's time for a reality check. The need for accountable external review systems was created by the inherent inability of the HMOs to put patient health ahead of bottom-line profits. A truly independent external review system would, by definition, have to be created by people other than health plan executives. Last year health plans brought external review reform to a halt over details such as whether the consumers would have to pay for the right to a review, whether all claims could be reviewed, whether the results of the review would be admissible in court and, most importantly, whether the HMOs could be held liable for the consequences of their bad decisions.
