I read with great interest Frank del Olmo's perceptive column "Affirmative Action's Edge" (Op-Ed Page, Sept. 8) on programs for Latinos in the public sector. While I applaud Los Angeles Fire Department Deputy Chief Reynaldo Rojo's recent appointment as hard-earned, and overdue, he must realize that the commitment and pressure of Latino activists (such as the highly respected Joe Sanchez) and other organizations like MALDEF make our oversized bureaucracies sensitive to community problems and the need for fair and equitable employment policies, particularly with regard to hiring and promotional opportunities.

We like to believe, in a nation premised on equality among all people, that we make it on our own in life. Whether we work as firefighters or as journalists, we like to think that our skills and talent, not our social connections, make us successful. That's why I was at first inclined to be understanding, if not sympathetic, to Reynaldo Rojo, who became the highest-ranking Latino in the Los Angeles Fire Department last week when he was appointed deputy chief.

State engineers visually inspected the freeway above the burned-out Metro Rail tunnel and judged it to be structurally sound.
