One day after tendering his resignation from Congress, Rep. Walter R. Tucker III endorsed his wife for his seat and lashed out at the jury that convicted him last week of extortion and tax evasion. Tucker, once considered a rising star from one of Compton's best-known political families, backed his wife, Robin, as "the person who I know will help this community unify." "The deck was stacked from the very beginning," said the two-term congressman, who is a lawyer and ordained minister.

Tucker contributed $42,125 to his election campaign earlier this year, most of it at a February testimonial dinner where the program was entitled "Charity Begins at Home." But at least $19,220 of the political funds wound up in the pockets of a son, two daughters and five other Tucker relatives, according to a campaign report recently filed by the mayor.

Not long ago, when the subject of exercise was being discussed (if we all spent as much time exercising as we do talking about it, we'd be in great shape), a friend observed: "You know, the problem with exercise classes is that you have to adapt to their schedule; they don't adapt to yours ."

Rarely have I written to The Times about articles or issues; however, today's Home moves me to write. Congratulations; you outdid yourselves today. Well done, from the cover (beautiful) throughout--very informative, interesting, balanced and enjoyable. Although the entire content is outstanding, I must single out "A Perennial Primer" by Robert Smaus and its illustration, photography and nursery sources; "Gourmet Greenery," too, produced by Robin Tucker. Brent Bear's photograph with intriguing recipes by Betsy Balsley gave us food for the soul as well as the stomach.

Musical dinners under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl. Peaceful early morning breakfasts on the beach. Sun-drenched picnics by the pool or in the park. These relatively informal moments are but a few of the times when paper plates can become the favored alternative to china, when plastic is preferable to crystal and when dish towels in all colors, stripes and plaids serve better than linen.
