It will be a shame if the Rams move from Orange County, for the team and the county so ideally complement each other in caliber of management and quality of performance. Now that Bob Citron is unemployed, maybe the Rams could pick him up cheap and add him to their coaching staff as trick play coordinator. ROBERT S. COUGHLIN Rancho Palos Verdes Today may well be the Rams' last game before moving to another state. They deserve a standing ho-hum. DWIGHT CATES Ventura

Let's get real about the true significance of the Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings. It's just a bunch of lawyers trying to get another lawyer to tell the truth, and we all know what a total waste of time that is. ROBERT S. COUGHLIN, Rancho Palos Verdes

Kasindorf's courageous and perceptive article fails to resolve one most troubling question: How did an individual so obviously wanting in even the most rudimentary intellectual and moral qualifications ever attain a state of grace in the first place? ROBERT S. COUGHLIN Rancho Palos Verdes

What complete contempt Rancho Palos Verdes Mayor Robert Ryan and his cronies must have for the intelligence and perceptiveness of the residents and voters of their community. Your Feb. 11 edition reports in sickening detail the activities of the mayor in personally insuring that state law is interpreted to benefit the financial greed of the developers by denying the city much-needed revenue for its schools and its children. This action is totally contrary to the intent and purpose for which this city was so recently incorporated.

The nomination of Mayor Tom Bradley for governor promises to do everything for the California Democratic Party that the nomination of Walter Mondale for President did for the national Democratic Party. The coming California gubernatorial campaign will be full of sound and fury and will signify nothing, except the pointless expenditure of vast sums of money. ROBERT S. COUGHLIN Rancho Palos Verdes

Your editorial celebration of the demise of Dr. Strangelove may be just a tad premature and slightly on the optimistic side. Your editorial opines that, since each side will be reduced to holding on to only 3,000 to 3,500 warheads, the first-strike option is thus removed. In other words, by the end of the century each side will only possess sufficient nuclear weaponry to extinguish all life on this planet 50 times over instead of 100 times over. Personally, I find this latest exercise in bureaucratic mindlessness to be more grotesque than consoling.

How much would the county have been willing and able to spend on Ramirez if he were an ill, homeless, destitute, law-abiding citizen instead of an alleged mass torturer and murderer? Hardly the millions that officials eagerly commit for his care and feeding now, I'll wager. Something seems terribly skewed and totally irrational with the values and priorities of a society that will permit, and even encourage with massive publicity, such a mockery of justice and a travesty of reason.

What a sad and revealing spectacle it is to witness senior active-duty United States military officers publicly confirm, by taking the Fifth Amendment, that they place their own personal legal welfare above the general welfare of the country they are sworn to serve. Whatever happened to General MacArthur's noble philosophy of "Duty, Honor, Country"? Where are the honorable men who believed in such quaint notions now that we so desperately need them? ROBERT S. COUGHLIN Rancho Palos Verdes

For their own safety and the protection of the public, the people who designed the new parking lots at the Peninsula Center should be committed promptly to an appropriate institution along with the bureaucrats who hired them. Conclusive proof of their severe mental problems is now set in concrete that completely surrounds the shopping area, confounding frustrated shoppers. Possibly, the wording of the contract devised by the bureaucrats to accomplish this fiasco was ambiguous, and the contractor thought he was supposed to construct a maze rather than a parking lot.
