One has to admire the tenacity of Lila Garrett. She'll be Geraldine Ferraro II before we know it. Especially with the Los Angeles Times' readiness to print anything resembling an attack on Reagan or, in fact, this government. I'm surprised you don't have May Company ads selling T-shirts with anti-Reagan captions. Garrett's simplistic reasoning that the government is censoring television is ridiculous when one sees the preponderance of anti-Administration documentaries on PBS, mostly supported by tax dollars.

ABC seems determined to fan the flames of paranoia in the country even if it kills them, and everybody else. Aside from the gruesome propaganda of "Amerika" itself, there's the glutting-on-air-all-day-all-night-anti-Russian promotion. All this at a time when even Henry Kissinger and Jeane Kirkpatrick agree that Gorbachev's efforts to democratize his country seem to be progressing. Obviously, the Reagan Administration needs to keep the hate going in order to break the ABM treaty and get his deadly so-called Star Wars program too entrenched for any future President to reverse.

As a current (Writers Guild of America, West) board member and one who was quoted by reporter Horn, I must protest his lack of objectivity and misstatements. Former WGAW Executive Director Naomi Gurian's supporters were quoted liberally. Opponents were not. After three months research and 35 interviews, one would think that WGAW president Ernest Lehman would be the first person interviewed by Horn. Lehman was never contacted. Horn's statement that members refuse to run for elective office because of strife is belied: 38 members are running for 11 offices, more than any time in the guild's history; 16 are by petition.

Melissa Etheridge has written a memoir dishing aplenty about her 12-year relationship with Julie Cypher, who left husband Lou Diamond Phillips to set up housekeeping with the rocker and later pulled an Anne Heche, announcing "I'm just not gay." Etheridge's 229-page autobiography, "The Truth Is ... My Life in Love and Music," confirms rumors that Brad Pitt and Jackson Browne were considered to father the women's two children until David Crosby volunteered to be the biological dad.

"Speaker Stirs Sparks at McCarthy Fund-Raiser"? (Part I, April 8). More like "Latest Shot in McCarthy Campaign Fired by Loose Cannon." The ever-irrepressible Dr. Helen Caldicott has, it seems, lost none of her taste for her own feet during her apparently now-ended sabbatical from a career of unintentional stand-up comedy. So Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev is a "miracle" man in the mold of Jesus? Amazing! And I thought Pat Robertson had cornered the market on religious snickery.
