There was nothing in "L.A. vs O.C.: A Special Report" (June 17) that a 10-minute drive through either county would not reveal. Generally, the article was a presentation of data of well-known facts. That is, Orange County: Republican, white, "parties," wealth, condos, surfers. Los Angeles County: Polluted, crime, urbane, culture sites, freeways, racial diversity. What I said in two sentences took Patt Morrison ("Family Feud") 12 pages. What a waste. HAATSARI KAGURABADZA Long Beach

I was pleased to read the article by Patt Morrison in today's paper on the "Instant Infant." I, too, purchased my "baby" in sheer defense against all the new parents around me. Since the baby even looks like me, I brought him to work and put him on my desk--the ultimate baby picture. My husband and I have fantasized about having pictures done at K mart to send home to the family, complete with announcements of an adoption. We would, of course, only accept cash gifts for the little tyke's college education.

Re "Taking L.A. for a ride," Opinion, Jan. 1 Cruising taxis won't reduce traffic or emissions. I agree with Patt Morrison that allowing cabs to easily pick up people who flag them down would benefit potential cab riders in busy areas such as downtown and Hollywood. However, I don't understand Morrison's statement that doing so "could cut down on traffic jams and carbon outlay." To the contrary, having empty cabs cruising the streets looking for fares would increase traffic and emissions.
