Your Feb. 20 article about the L.A. children who can't attend school because they literally have no shoes tore my heart out. Shades of "Angela's Ashes." But L.A. isn't Limerick, Ireland! It is the United States of America! And we live in the richest state in the nation. The humiliation the children feel because they have to wear rags and go barefoot is almost worse than the hunger. How can we possibly cheer our booming economy while 72% of our children live below the poverty line? I wonder, I wonder!

That is one predicament Robert Andrews' "A Murder of Promise" sketches, and that his two detective lieutenants, Frank Kearney and Jose Phelps, have to face. The most senior homicide investigators in Washington, D.C.'

"You Only Die Twice" begins with a dead body washed up on a Miami beach and ends the American way, with a lawsuit filed on behalf of the little boy who spied it, seeking damages for post-traumatic stress disorder, mental anguish, psychiatric trauma and emotional distress because deceptive advertising had lured him and his family to Miami Beach for a vacation reeking of coconut-scented suntan oil. All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.

"The Charterhouse of Parma" has never sparkled in English with such radiance as it does in Richard Howard's new translation. I would say that Howard has removed layers of grime from a masterpiece--except that the effect is more musical than visual. For Stendhal combines Mozart's brio with Mozart's tender pathos, and it is this range that Howard has so masterfully recreated in our language.

State Sen. Jim McGreevey, who voted for the infamous 1990 tax increase that doomed the state's last Democratic governor, won the party's primary to challenge Gov. Christine Todd Whitman. McGreevey defeated Rep. Robert Andrews and former prosecutor Michael Murphy for the chance to take on the popular, tax-cutting Republican governor. With 94% of districts reporting, McGreevey had 140,232 votes, or 40%, Andrews had 132,203 votes, or 37% and Murphy had 74,847 votes, or 21%.

Re "New Future, New Reputation," Valley Edition Editorials, March 7. Your editorial contained good and bad news. The good news is the major turnaround of Blythe Street that included planting trees.

Unfortunately, trees as well as autos emit hydrocarbons, which in the presence of nitrogen oxide (that autos also supply) and sunlight create ozone. In terms of the amount of hydrocarbons emitted, liquidambar is one of the worst species.
