"Defining Controversy" (July 9) makes the mistake of defining Reason magazine as a "Libertarian" magazine. The capital L tells Times readers that the magazine is part of the Libertarian party. It is not. Reason is an independent magazine whose editorial philosophy is best characterized as libertarian. KEVIN D. TEASLEY Public Affairs Director Reason Magazine Santa Monica

Today, Sullum and Stimson begin their Dust-Up by comparing drug decriminalization and legalization. Later in the week, they'll discuss drug-related violence, federal raids of marijuana dispensaries and more. Prohibition didn't work then; it isn't working now By Jacob Sullum The main disadvantage of "drug legalization" is the implication that the natural course of things, the default position, is for the government to dictate which substances people may put into their bodies.

The idea surfaced a year ago at a cocktail party: What if you opened your mailbox to find a national magazine with your name on the cover and the headline "They Know Where You Live!" -- under an aerial photo of your house? And what if, when you turned the page, the editor's note and the advertisements included details about your neighbors? It was too sexy a concept for Nick Gillespie, editor in chief of Reason magazine, to pass up.

View has revisited some of the people and places it reported on in 1986 to update their stories. Among them: --A shelter for the homeless that was itself homeless. --An author who had new ideas about how to market and promote his book. --The campaign to save Nancy Reagan's 1981 inaugural gown, which is stretching under the weight of its bugle beads.

Reason is coming to Los Angeles. Next week. But before you say, "And about time, too," perhaps you should know more. In this case, Reason is a magazine and part of the Reason Foundation, a think tank that seeks ways to turn the federal government into an anorexic shadow of its current self, among other things. And in what some might consider an act of insanity, the Reason staff is abandoning the quiet, clear-aired charms of Santa Barbara for the Southern California megalopolis.

Calling itself a "think magazine for the baby boom generation," Reason, the Libertarian alternative to The Nation, National Review and the New Republic, celebrates its 20th anniversary this month. The journal was started in 1968 as a mimeographed broadside by Boston University journalism student Lanny Friedlander.

No More Moore: Some stores in North Carolina want to see less, not more, of Demi Moore, so they have banned the new Vanity Fair from their shelves. The reason: The magazine's cover photo shows Moore, eight months pregnant and nude. Store owners said they thought the controversial cover would offend customers.

Virginia Postrel complains that intellectual women speakers at the political conventions--Carla Hills and Condoleeza Rice (Republicans) and Barbara Jordan (Democrat)--were all but ignored by the media giants (Commentary, Sept. 15). Postrel obviously was not watching her local public broadcasting station. MacNeil-Lehrer, in conjunction with NBC and Tom Brokaw, gave complete speech coverage to all three of these ladies, even to Mrs. Hills' posturing for the audience, first to the left, then the center, then to the right, then a repeat of the process.

I read the letter (Sept. 6)from Ross O. Swimmer, assistant secretary of the Interior for Indian affairs, on the Hopi-Navajo dispute. I immediately thought of the interview in Reason magazine recently of Russell Means, the Indian activist. Means recommends that the Bureau of Indian Affairs be abolished immediately. He says it is demeaning for the government to have a federal bureaucracy oversee the affairs of an ethnic group. There is no Bureau of White People's Affairs, no Bureau of Negro Protection, but if your skin is red, a Washington paper-pusher must approve your private actions and keep you on welfare.
