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

Happy? Oh, try again. I was thrilled to read in my very own paper that Gloria Molina, the Los Angeles County supervisor, and her husband, Ron Martinez, had put up an illegal retaining wall at their house. It's not just the wall I admire--it's the attitude. For more than 10 years, the couple had snubbed inspectors, ignored fines and now, according to Peter Hong reporting in today's paper, it seems they may have put in a swimming pool without a permit in a yard being supported by that illegal wall.

As a working single mother, I too have discovered the joys of thrift shopping ("Goodwill Hunting," by Patt Morrison, Style, March 11). Where else can I buy my Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and cashmere sweaters? And then there are the two Saks Fifth Avenue 100% camel hair coats, the Calvin Klein jacket and the Christian Dior boots. A few years ago I would have been appalled at the idea of shopping at such a venue. I didn't know what I was missing in value and fun. Amelia C. Warwick Pacific Palisades
OPINION

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.
