I find that Brian Fairrington's Dec. 19 cartoon about "gift wrapping" (Opinion) was, at a minimum, distasteful. It is even more distasteful that The Times published it. Disparaging our troops and our flag is just not the right thing to do. Paul Bernstein Beverly Hills

How many accidents, injuries, maimings and deaths do we need before cell phone usage by drivers in moving vehicles is outlawed? Is the telecommunications lobby so strong that public safety continues to be ignored by all levels of government? Paul Bernstein Beverly Hills

Re "EPA Gets Tough on Areas With Poor Air Quality," April 16: I recently had a smog check for my 1994 automobile, in order to renew the license tags. The measured pollution was negligible. Autos 10 years old or less must be totally abused to fail the smog check, as they have efficient-burning engines in addition to catalytic converters. Since most autos on our highways are 10 years old or less, they are not the cause of L.A. Basin smog. The real polluters are stationary, such as chemical plants, refineries and manufacturing plants that use oil as their energy source.

I recently saw an excellent performance of the Lincoln-Douglas debates. This should be seen by the presidential candidates as it portrays a level of integrity, respect and cooperation that does not exist today. Both Douglas and Lincoln put the preservation of the Union above party and personal gain. After the presidential election that Douglas lost, Lincoln asked for his help and cooperation in running the country. Do you think that either Bush or Clinton will ask the other to do likewise after the November election?

Re "Civic Center Security Called Too Restrictive," Oct. 20: Our government protects our liberty interests with liberty infringement. The least it could do is do it effectively. Gee, could a terrorist get a fake photo ID? Well, yes. In an alley four or five blocks north, near Olvera Street in Los Angeles, anybody, and I mean anybody, can buy a photo ID indistinguishable from a state-issued ID. What is required? Why, $100 and a small tip. G. Michael Pogue La Crescenta Will someone please tell USC law professor Erwin Chemerinsky that the Land of Oz and Utopia no longer exist.

It is comforting to know that we finally have a Congress that is able to establish priorities. We now know that hearings on Rep. Mel Reynolds, Sen. Bob Packwood, Whitewater, Waco and the Randy Weaver-Idaho incident are major issues as compared to welfare reform, budget deficit reduction, simplification of tax laws, improving the economy, crime prevention, etc. PAUL W.
