Re "Strip Club Donation Returned by Davis," April 22: If only Roger Jon Diamond and his clients were as concerned with the quality of life in the communities that their type of business destroys. Do we really believe they are concerned for our environment? The businesses that Diamond represents wreak havoc on every community in which they are present. He uses our 1st Amendment right to squash our quality of life. Thank you, Gov. Gray Davis, for returning the money. Vickie Casas West Los Angeles

Your article "Wilson Prods His Rival By Backing L.A. Drilling Ban" (Part I, April 9) does a disservice to Lt. Gov. Leo T. McCarthy, who is currently campaigning for U.S. Senate on the Democratic ticket. McCarthy has been a long-time supporter of No Oil and has been a major part of the battle to protect our coastline. He supported our position before the California Coastal Commission last year and the Los Angeles Board of Referred Powers this year. While we welcome Republican Sen. Pete Wilson's endorsement, we also want the public to know that McCarthy also supports coastal protection.

On a recent afternoon, attorney Roger Jon Diamond's work took him into a dimly lit club where he chatted business with the manager. Nearby, a blond clad in nothing but a G-string gyrated before a patron, his face hidden in the dark. Diamond didn't see nakedness, but the raw honesty of self-expression. What others call obscenity, he insists is a 1st Amendment right. And when cities try to trample on such rights, Diamond sues. And he often wins.

The Building and Safety Department has determined that a new shop selling adult-themed merchandise on Venice Boulevard is in violation of zoning ordinances. The Hollywood Erotic Boutique at 12820 Venice Boulevard opened two weeks ago despite rules that adult entertainment businesses must be 500 feet away from a school, church or residential zone, said Niki Tennant, a deputy to Councilwoman Ruth Galanter. The store sells pornographic literature, videos, lingerie and lotions.
