How ironic that in referring to "undemocratic discrimination" against people with AIDS, Pratapaditya Pal (reviewing Florence King's "Reflections in a Jaundiced Eye," Book Review, April 30) should use the outrageous and offensive modifier "even the unwitting ones." The insidious suggestion that some people with AIDS somehow deserve to suffer this disease is appallingly insensitive. It is especially shocking that such a suggestion should appear in the pages of an otherwise sophisticated publication like The Times' Book Review.

"Black and White and Read by Fewer" (Oct. 10), on the decline in newspaper readership, has one theme in common with all The Times' preceding puzzling about this situation: It does not discuss the product. The almost universal left-wing attitude that permeates The Times, even into the Sports, Calendar and Business sections, turns many people off. Why open up the paper only to have the system that appeals to many savaged each day? Richard Jennings Bakersfield

Reader Richard Jennings' petulant sniping at reporter Tony Perry's medical misfortune while covering Marine combat operations in Falloujah for the past three months is both unseemly and well off the mark (Letters, May 30). Perry has consistently and accurately reported on the actions and the troops involved in a manner deserving of the hightest commendation. As a Marine combat veteran from a long-ago conflict in Korea, I would welcome Perry in my foxhole anytime. Art Thatcher Thousand Oaks
