Page 1 of The Times (June 28) reminded us that the Reagan Administration had said in advance that it would ignore the International Court of Justice ruling (14 to 1) calling for the United States to cease its support for the contras and to compensate the Nicaraguan government for resultant economic losses.

This year the handiest Republicans were the lefties, with presidential candidates Sen. Bob Dole, the Rev. Pat Robertson and Vice President Bush all left-handed.
