Your ho-hum discourse shed no light on Gates the man, whose only sin is the political animalism that taints his better and analytical, academic judgment. TERRY KING Los Angeles

John Schwada's article "Yaroslavsky, Feuer Claim Overlapping Constituency" (Aug. 28) regarding Jewish political circle's divided decision on which one to support for L.A.'s civic council had excellent coverage of Michael Feuer's attributes--but not a word about Barbara Yaroslavsky's. I've served on several Jewish Federation Council committees with Barbara and have found her to be one of the most efficient and ethical volunteers I know. Her ability to grasp the crux of a problem comes from her intellectual insight and extensive experience on numerous committees.

The fact that Bettelheim was a brilliant man should not validate his suicide. Clever people are quite capable of making desperate and foolish choices. CYNTHIA TEWS Los Angeles

Referring to the article "Child-Care Crunch" (April 21), it is my considered opinion, in the wake of the McMartin (Preschool) outrage, that any involvement in child care is, like the ownership of residential rental housing, prima facie evidence of insanity. S.B. FREIDENREICH Los Angeles

Rehnquist is the right chief justice at the right moment in history. We need judges who are quick, fair and loyal to the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. GEORGE CABRERA Los Angeles

You ran a quote from a callous father: "The money I'm going to spend on my kid I could spend instead on a Lamborghini." In the interest of objectivity, here's what I overheard a woman snarl at her ex several years ago : "If I want to spend the kids' money on a new outfit for myself when I go dating my new boyfriend, that's none of your damned business."

Why do you devote the top six columns of the sports section to the Anaheim Rams and stick a small article about our own Los Angeles Raiders in the lower left column? I assumed that a Los Angeles newspaper would devote columns to the Los Angeles teams and not to some money-grubbers in the suburbs. T.W. PRIOR Encino

Jim Schachter's article about Peter O'Malley ("O'Malley's Way," Aug. 18) strikes out in the face of the facts. Dodger fans love the stadium, the landscaping, the parking, the manager and the players--those 25 guys who never do it the simple way but who almost always keep it exciting. And we respect the owners, too. They are a class act, with the best-run, most successful management in baseball. Only The Times seems unappreciative. JEAN FIRSTENBERG Los Angeles

Now that travel through the Westside has been further complicated by the loss of a portion of the Santa Monica Freeway for the next six months or more, it is to be hoped that the city of Beverly Hills will do its part by making transit easier on Santa Monica and, especially, Olympic boulevards. There is a traffic signal at practically every intersection, so poorly timed as to create a ridiculous stop-and-go situation even at 3 a.m.! At least between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., the lights at minor cross streets should be taken out of service.

It is truly sickening to read newspaper reports that some Santa Monica tenants have been so quick to demand rent decreases from "landlords who don't repair quake-damaged apartments" (after only two days!). At the very least, this behavior is opportunistic and smacks of price gouging in reverse. It is especially sad considering how many families have been left homeless and shattered by the quake. This disaster has brought out the best qualities of so many Los Angeles residents, and the worst of some of Santa Monica's rent-controlled tenants.

Orange County continues its roller coaster ride on the annual Money magazine list of livable places this year, screaming down to 185th place in the nation and ninth in California. On its list of 300 cities and metropolitan areas, the magazine relegated Orange County well behind the likes of Fargo, N.D. (52nd), Wausau, Wis. (80th) and Kokomo, Ind. (83rd).

April 14, 1993 | MAXINE WATERS, Rep. Maxine Waters, a Democrat, represents Gardena, Inglewood, Hawthorne and parts of Los Angeles.
My dear children, my friends, my brothers, life is sometimes cold-blooded and rotten. And it seems nobody, nobody cares. But there are the good times, the happy moments. I'm talking about the special times when a baby is born and when gospel music sounds good on Sunday morning. When Cube is kickin' and Public Enemy is runnin' it. When peach cobbler and ice cream tastes too good, the down-home blues makes you sing and shout, and someone simply saying, "I love you" makes you want to cry. All of these moments are about life and living.

James sees the world's economic problems as a short-term dislocation that will end as soon as Japan, Europe and the United States resume their previous growth. When that happens, he believes that several companies will do especially well: Philip Morris, up to $80 per share; CPC International, a food processor and distributor, up to $50; Nucor Corp., a specialty steel manufacturer, up to $57, and Pall Corp.

I am 100% nopalero. You know what that means? It's like when they want to represent a Mexican, they show a little man in a big hat asleep next to a big cactus. A nopal cactus. That is nopalero. It means you are 100% Mexican, you love your country, you are proud to be Mexican. I came here illegally from Mexico five years ago. When the amnesty began, my application for citizenship got rejected because of technicalities. My boss helped me a lot to get permanent residency.
