It's obvious that you have never seen a Democrat you didn't like. Your latest atrocity concerns the Tower nomination "Tower's Alamo" (March 10) where you paper over the complete and total destruction of a man and his reputation. John Tower was not rejected as secretary of defense because of his ethics or temperament, but because Senate Democrats were going to prove to President George Bush, very early on, who was really in charge.

Four years ago, Escondido voters put the brakes on runaway growth by electing a "slow-growth" majority to City Hall. Essentially, that coalition remains in place today, including Mayor Jerry Harmon. This year's election is something of a replay of that pivotal 1988 campaign--only this time voters have a track record by which to judge the reformers. Despite doom-and-gloom predictions, Escondido has sensibly controlled growth without suffering an economic meltdown.

The crew of Southern California Edison employees kept their design simple but still claimed a world's record Saturday during the United Way's fourth annual sand castle contest at Seal Beach. Slick and tall, with smooth walls, the monolithic sand castle by the 12-member Edison Sand Crew stood 14 feet high, 1 1/2 feet higher than the previous record, they said.
