Re the Orange County Newswatch of Jan. 15, in which Jerry Bellsmith says of Meals on Wheels, "We simply don't have any more money": I have been a volunteer driver for Meals on Wheels for over six years and consider it a privilege to be able to do it. Most of the people who receive Meals on Wheels' services are adults who spent 30 or more years earning income and paying taxes to county, state and federal agencies. Now that they are in their "golden years" and need a very small amount of assistance from us, it seems we cannot find the funds to assist our needy seniors.

Re the Orange County Newswatch item about the five county developers--Donald Bren, William Lyon, Kathryn Thompson, George Argyros and Jim Baldwin--who were guests of President Bush at the White House. The White House belongs to all of us, right? As an American, I own a piece of it? Sure. But I can't go there or see it unless I belong to the "Team 100," the $100,000 contributors to the Bush campaign. But I did contribute! Everyone of us who bought one of the overpriced houses from any of these five developers contributed.

Re: "New Beach Boys" (Orange County Newswatch, July 4): As a retired executive from a Fortune 500 company, I was accustomed to traveling on the company's behalf. My accommodations were the usual Best Westerns, Holiday Inns, etc., because expense control was so important to our bottom-line profit performance. If we were staying for any length of time in a certain location, we would rent efficiency units. How is it that Salomon Bros. can afford accommodations at a high-priced hotel like the Westin South Coast Plaza?

With respect to Superior Court Judge Robert R. Fitzgerald's comment on the appeals court reversal of the murder conviction and 45-year sentence out of his court, about which he is quoted as saying, "I did notice there was a dissenting opinion from one intelligent human being" (Orange County Newswatch, Aug. 3): We are reminded that we live in a society of laws, not of men. It is the cold, objective precision of the rule of law that would preclude a decision based not upon justice, but upon emotion.

I am a UCLA student who is happily married to a man who has a sense of humor, social grace and happens to be a lawyer. I began to question the objectivity of reports in the Los Angeles Times (when) in Orange County Newswatch (Dec. 1) on the front page, I saw the headline "Anything Goes," describing ways to "enliven your office Christmas party." I became a little angry when I read that one of the ideas was to "make sure the lawyers are there." This short article goes on to quote "veteran party-goers" as saying that lawyers "hold the bit so tightly on these people, when you let it out, they can't keep their clothes on."

WHO'S COUNTING? What's the first thing you have to do when you buy a watch at most department stores? Set the time. . . . But not at Tourneau's at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, which has its 4,000-plus watches set correctly all the time. Which is why its staff will spend 250 working hours by tonight changing them all. . . . If it's escaped you: Set your clock back an hour before you go to bed tonight. If you usually wake up at 7, it will only be 6. You can sleep another hour.
