Richard Rider would love to have Gov. Pete Wilson's job. He dreams of hacking away at bureaucracy, crushing all new tax legislation under a huge rubber stamp that reads "VETO." He's even imagined the sound this would make: whoooomp! Rider, the Libertarian candidate for governor, is a realist, however. The 49-year-old stockbroker from San Diego knows that a minor party candidate such as himself has no hope of being elected governor Nov. 8.

Re "Private-Sector Anger Builds as Public Pension Costs Rise," Oct. 2 I spend a lot of time fighting this incredible government giveaway to what has become the new aristocracy -- public employees. One important point that needs clarification -- the reforms being suggested are tepid and insufficient. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and others have proposed that new government workers get a 401(k) type of plan. No one has seriously proposed cutting the existing or retired employees' pensions.

Refusing to declare Proposition A dead, San Diego County leaders voted Monday to continue collecting the half-cent sales tax for court and jail construction that was ruled unconstitutional by the state Supreme Court on Dec. 19. Officials also decided to seek another hearing for clarification of key aspects of the high court's ruling.

Charging that a half-cent sales tax increase approved by San Diego voters last month to finance new jails and courtrooms is unconstitutional, opponents of the measure filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to invalidate the election and block collection of the tax. In the lawsuit filed in Superior Court, attorney Louis Katz argues that the local sales tax increase, which county officials estimate would generate $1.

Howard Stern isn't running for governor of New York after all. The shock jock's withdrawal as the Libertarian Party nominee puts an end to news coverage of minor party candidates for the 1994 election season. That's too bad, because minor parties could determine one of the biggest elections of the year, the high-stakes California governor's race. If June primary exit polls are to be believed, alternative parties could take as much as 20% of the vote from Kathleen Brown and Pete Wilson.
