Thank you for "Taking On the Legal Battles of Those in Need" (April 12). It is rare that a liberal publication so forthrightly profiles those who are working to fragment our society with the unabashed goal of converting us into a Third World nation. This frightening piece is a portrait of do-gooders out of control, of power-crazed leftist lawyers pursuing a politically correct agenda. Irma Rodriguez promotes pure socialism. ("We want to develop an equitable distribution of resources."

They were not merely the best team in the American League that year. And they were much more than simply the winners of the World Series. The New York Yankees of 1927, sportswriters, fans and opposing players concurred, were probably the best team that ever played baseball. They were, it was proclaimed, a dream team, a team for all seasons and for all ages. And since that summer 60 years ago, America has not seen another team quite as sensational as the 1927 New York Yankees.

The seminar by Jose Millan at a labor site run by the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles--or CHIRLA--was the latest of several such events his staff has coordinated, mostly in Southern California, in the past few months. "If I can do anything to help them get the rights they deserve, I'm going to do it," Millan said.

What has Tom Bradley accomplished during his 19 years as mayor? Jimmy Tokeshi, Regional director, Pacific Southwest District, Japanese-American Citizens League Bradley was a real coalition-builder. We don't know how much we'll miss him until after he's gone. He's been good for the community. He had a hand in bringing Police Chief Willie Williams in, which is a nice promise of the direction the city needs to go in. He had an ability to bring people together.
