Re "Independence, spoiled," editorial, Sept. 18 It is clear The Times would prefer that all Mexicans quietly accept the continuation of the same regime that has kept them in poverty. Indeed, intellectual Cuauhtemoc Cardenas won the election in 1988 but did not have the courage to do what the most recent presidential challenger, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, is doing. Cardenas failed the Mexican people then, and he fails again by not supporting Lopez Obrador. Mexicans want progress, but not the kind of progress that will keep them poor.

When Jose Luis Razo confessed to a series of robberies two years ago, he gave details of the crimes to La Habra police that only the perpetrator or victims could have known, prosecutor Ravi Mehta said Thursday. "The evidence will show that Razo committed those robberies," Mehta said in his opening statement in Superior Court in Santa Ana. "No one put a lamp over his head . . . or hit him with a rubber hose." The former Harvard University student's trial got under way Thursday with Razo's court-appointed attorney, John D. Barnett, declining to give an opening statement.

It was some years ago. But I could never forget the photograph. It was of Patricia Lopez, a 9-year-old Santa Ana girl who had disappeared and was later found beaten to death in the Santa Ana River bed. To look at the photograph is to believe in innocence. In it, Patricia is smiling. Her long, dark hair rests over her left shoulder in one big braid. Her left cheek has the hint of a dimple. Then there are the eyes: dark, bright and as wide as outdoors.

Reporter Patricia Lopez wrote about Chevron's claims that it discharges an average of 6 million gallons of such waste a day into water 20 feet deep from a pipe that runs 500 feet out from shore. The story goes on to say that the company is licensed to discharge a maximum of 15 million gallons of waste water a day through the pipe.
