Patt Morrison

August 5, 1990
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

Re "Patt Morrison Asks Mavis Leno: More than talk," Opinion, July 4 Though I champion Mavis Leno's work in the international feminist movement, I take exception to her dismissive references to the amazing women she refers to in her interview with Patt Morrison. Her relegation of Betsy Ross to a corner of irrelevance because "she sewed" indicates a point of view held by many people who wear clothing produced by others whose skills are undervalued and who are, most likely, female.

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.
