I was appalled to read about the efforts to recall West Hollywood Mayor John Heilman (Times, Feb. 3). When I lived in West Hollywood, I served on the city's Affordable Housing Task Force as an appointee of John Heilman, and later served on the Rent Stabilization Commission. In all my experiences with the West Hollywood City Government during that time, I found Heilman to be the most devoted, honest and sincere member of the City Council. His efforts to involve all citizens in government have been remarkable.

Re "A repugnant boycott," Opinion, Dec. 23 In criticizing the American Studies Assn.'s academic boycott of Israel, Michael S. Roth asks: Why start with Israel? We have to start somewhere, so why not with the largest recipient of U.S. aid? Roth's question fails to address the extent to which U.S. aid supports Israel's violation of Palestinian rights and international law. It also fails to address the discriminatory treatment of Palestinians in Israeli educational systems, and the extent of collaboration between Israeli academic institutions and the state in the occupation.

Re "Support falls for Brown's tax hike proposal," USC Dornsife/Times Poll, Oct. 25 I am always puzzled when people choose to live by theory rather than reality. But that seems to be happening with the opposition to Proposition 30, which would raise sales taxes and taxes on high-income earners. The reality that massive budget shortfalls will be followed by major tuition hikes at colleges and almost a month cut off the public school year doesn't seem to matter to those who oppose the initiative.

Reagan cannot deal effectively or honestly with revolutionaries in Central America. He has no real interest in the basic needs of the indigenous people that he claims to be liberating. It is my personal feeling that Reagan is making decisions with prejudiced information. RAWLES WILLIAMS Minchumino, Alaska

Re "She's on the front lines in drone battle," Oct. 9 Professor Mary Ellen O'Connell and political activist Imran Khan contend that the U.S. strategy of covert targeted drone strikes against militants outside Afghanistan is illegal under international law. The U.S. finds itself at war against a stateless band of Islamic militants who kill innocent civilians with explosives and launch attacks against Western embassies and civilian targets outside...

Re "Worries grow as health jobs go offshore," July 25 The outsourcing of nursing-related healthcare jobs is appalling. Though still in its early stages, it's easy to imagine corporate decision-makers chomping at the bit to transform the human body into a commodity subject to the same market forces as a common household object - a blender, for instance. My guess is that someday the idea of healthcare will no longer exist; instead, it will simply be considered an extended warranty.

Re "Palin's exit as governor stuns, puzzles," July 4 If Sarah Palin desires to run for president in 2012, it seems strange that she would think that the best way she can serve her current Alaskan constituency is by not serving them at all. Jonathan Horowitz Irvine -- It surprised me to read in your article that her remarks were "disjointed and cryptic," because I heard her speech, and they were sincere, profound and eloquent....

MARK SWED'S lovely words ["High Notes That Set All-New Standards," Sept. 7] captured the very essence of Luciano Pavarotti's unique gift: "When that sound so fresh and alive and gorgeous, like nothing I have ever heard before or since, generously poured forth. . . ." This was a man in love with his music whose sheer joy of singing gave voice to his passion for life. I don't care about the foolishness, the commercial follies.

DON'T BE surprised if a confused friend or neighbor asks you how you plan to vote on the June 6 ballot measure to ban welfare for illegal aliens. It's there, she'll tell you. She saw it in the ballot pamphlet. You'll say that's impossible. There are only two measures on the ballot: Proposition 81 is a library bond; Proposition 82 is a tax for preschool education, and that's it. So where's the illegal-alien welfare ban?

When Darin Erstad was first called up to the big leagues in 1996, he played for the California Angels. From 1997 through 2004, Erstad played for the Anaheim Angels. And this spring, barring a trade of the first baseman or a legal ruling against Angel owner Arte Moreno, Erstad will suit up for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Confusing?
