Los Angeles Police Chief Bernard C. Parks promised Friday to establish specific guidelines for how police who misbehave will be punished, agreeing to fix a long-standing issue that rank-and-file officers say has contributed to sagging morale. "It gives everybody a clear understanding so we can eliminate the perception as we go through the disciplinary system that some people perceive others are being treated differently," said Parks.

Although I don't live in Los Angeles, I read with interest your interview with Mayor Richard Riodan (July 3). By most accounts, Riordan is a conscientious and principled man. By some accounts he is even a success after enduring a trying first year. But his characterization of himself as a "father image" for the city crystallizes the uneasy feelings I've had about him since he first entered the public arena: someone whose outlook is essentially patriarchal and rooted in the past. What Los Angeles needs--what government at all levels needs--is a leader, a word that is not gender-specific.

Tough choices. That's how Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan describes his new 1996-97 budget. The City Council, like it or not, will have to make similar tough choices because the City of Angels is a maturing municipality, past its bloom of easy growth. City revenues are not expected to grow as fast as the economy, or to be adequate to cover expenditures.

In a word, duh. The first item on the agenda for Friday's meeting of the newly formed California Consumer and Conservation Financing Authority: Adoption of a conflict-of-interest code, a "statement of incompatible activities" and an ethics policy. A bright idea, indeed, considering the drip-drip-drip of revelations that nearly a dozen officials of the Davis administration had some kind of financial ties to energy companies doing business in California.
