One cannot help but marvel over the timing: Indictments finally handed down against those involved under the Reagan-Bush Administration (and its extenuating "arms" and "circumstances") and a few hours later, an "emergency" airlift of our troops into Honduras! All our poor young men and women. I guess that will teach Congress to take action! BEVERLY SIMONS-MORSE Manhattan Beach

A federal appeals court Friday expanded the definition of records that must be preserved by the government to include millions of White House computer messages and other documents from the Ronald Reagan and George Bush presidencies. The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals here represents a landmark ruling involving the maintenance of government records as more and more material is placed into computers.

Too late your story on the Jay, Me., paper mill battle showing how the Reagan-Bush Administration breaks towns--health and hearts--by deregulation and aiding in union-breaking tactics. Air controllers, loggers, interstate bus drivers, newspaper printers and even football players were hurt by the "profits before people" conduct of the Reagan Administration. Yes, too late for the people of Jay, who have to live with no jobs and broken friendships. Also too late to aid Democratic candidates Michael Dukakis and Lloyd Bentsen.

A simple question regarding democracy and the Nicaraguan elections: Who showed more respect for democratic values? Daniel Ortega, who allowed a popular election to unseat his own presidency; or the Reagan-Bush Administration, that subverted, perverted and otherwise compromised our own moral and democratic principles in pursuit of its policy of terror and intimidation? If we are to accept the notion that the election outcome is a vindication of the Reagan-Bush policy, then we must also accept a revision of the popular quotation to read that "It is now possible for democracy to flow from the barrel of a gun."

Bush stated, in response to a debate question about the number of officials in the Reagan-Bush Administration who have left under the cloud of illegal acts, that "you can't legislate morality." He used this comment to excuse all the improprieties committed during this Administration. If he really feels that way, why is he in favor of making abortion a crime? How, then, does he justify attempting to enforce his morality on the women of this country? BEVERLY JENSEN Redondo Beach

We read with interest Harry Bernstein's Aug. 23 column, "Bush's Happy Talk Doesn't Apply to Very Many Workers." The column helps to prove what we have believed for a long time--that the Republican Party is the party of special interests, the corporate elite and the wealthy. The Reagan-Bush Administration's claims concerning economic performance, specifically job creation, are distorted. The average working family has more members working more hours just to stay in the same place. We have only one question.

"Et tu, Brute?" These words came rushing to my mind, when I saw Paul Conrad's cartoon of Dukakis floundering in the whales' ice hole in Alaska (Oct. 20). Surely, Conrad of all people could not be bought by the Great Republican Propaganda Mud Machine! Conrad has been my life preserver and companion throughout these long sleazy years of the Reagan-Bush Administration! Why has the media rushed to turn against Dukakis? Have they all been bribed by the Great Republican Propaganda Mud Machine?
OPINION
September 25, 1988
Bush's contention that Dukakis is "dividing Americans" because of their economic differences is astounding, considering that the economic chasms which exist today are the handiwork of the Reagan-Bush Administration (Part I, Sept. 20). Recent figures from the Census Bureau bear out that since 1980 the rich have gotten richer, the middle class and poor have gotten poorer, and the Republican's "trickle down" economics have really been an exercise in "suction up" to benefit the wealthy.

Bush likes to eat fried pork rinds, and if he were President, he'd make sure that everyone says the Pledge of Allegiance each day. Dan Quayle should be vice president because he never burned the American flag. Ed Meese's chief qualification for the office of attorney general was that he has never been convicted of a crime. And President Reagan only makes serious blunders some of the time. How can anyone take the Republican Party seriously? Their idea of public service fits more closely to my idea of Trivial Pursuit.

The GOP is regarded as the "party of the future." As a teen-age voter, I believe the younger generation is prone to vote Republican because of the advancements in today's society. The American economy, for example, has grown, and opportunity is flourishing as a result of the Reagan-Bush Administration. In 1980, the Democrats left a towering interest rate which the Republicans have cut by more than half. In addition, an unemployment rate of 5.6% in May, 1988, proves that the Republican Administration is successful in bringing about a prosperous America.
