Referencing your March 5 story on the Ronald Reagan Courthouse: It is the perfect tribute to the Reagan presidency--an overpriced coat on an empty shell. THOMAS WALTON Laguna Niguel

Re "Accusations fly at debate," Jan. 31 During the Republican presidential debate, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Arizona Sen. John McCain, Texas Rep. Ron Paul and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney mentioned the "Reagan revolution" nearly every time they answered a question. Obviously, each candidates is trying to convince rank-and-file voters that he is the second coming of Ronald Reagan. If true, here's my question: Does anyone think there is a Romney, Paul, McCain or Huckabee revolution in the making?

Re "Defining, Deifying Reagan in History," April 3: The thought of Ronald Reagan's visage being carved into Mt. Rushmore is, to put it mildly, sickening. Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt all presided over administrations steeped in strong moral character and integrity. Reagan presided over an administration soaked to the gills in greed, selfishness, dishonesty and arrogance. It's high time that Harry Truman's features were carved into the mountain. As opposed to Reagan, Truman is the epitome of virtue and would fit in just fine!

With this latest in a litany of avoidable tragedies, President (Actor) Ronald Wilson Reagan has sealed his place in history. With very few exceptions, Reagan's legacy can be summed up in one word--death. VICTOR PETERSON Oxnard
OPINION
August 23, 1987 | David M. O'Brien, David M. O'Brien, a government professor at the University of Virginia, recently received the American Bar Assn.'s 1987 Silver Gavel Award for his book, "Storm Center: The Supreme Court in American Politics " (Norton)
The left and the right are gearing up for September's Supreme Court confirmation battle over Judge Robert H. Bork. The outcome turns on whether enough senators are persuaded that Bork is in the legal mainstream. What is being ignored, however, is how profoundly the Reagan Administration has already shifted legal thought and the direction of the federal judiciary. In 6 1/2 years, Reagan has named more lower federal court judges--317 in all--than Franklin D. Roosevelt did in 12 years--203 judges.
