As dozens of former POWs snapped to attention, the Navy on Saturday dedicated a warship to the late Vice Adm. James Stockdale, who was credited by many fellow captives in Vietnam with giving them the courage to survive. Stockdale, a soft-spoken scholar best known for his short-lived foray into presidential politics, died at 81 in 2005. He was H. Ross Perot's running mate in 1992 -- but Perot, who spoke at the commissioning, did not mention the campaign.

OPINION
October 13, 2004
Here's one thing John F. Kerry and George W. Bush have in common -- neither is sufficiently concerned about those growing federal deficits and their threat to the economy. Where is Ross Perot when we need him? Both candidates say they have a plan to halve the deficit over the next four years. But as exasperated moderator Charles Gibson pointed out in Friday's debate, it's hard to see how Bush or Kerry would get us from here to there. Bush deserves being singled out for getting us into this mess.

A letter writer (April 9) seems to feel Bill Clinton did not have a mandate to rule as a result of the 1992 election. Clinton got 43.3% of the votes, George Bush got 37.7% and Ross Perot got 19%. No, Clinton did not get a mandate, but how do we describe the miserable showing by Bush? Not even the Supreme Court could have helped him. Perot seemed to be the real winner--showing the public's disgust with politics in general. HANFORD L. LEE Bakersfield

Gazing out on the grounds of his palatial hilltop estate, it doesn't take long for the gentleman in the gray silk suit to reveal his passion: "This is my own spaceship on Earth," he says. Here, in the rarefied atmosphere high above the Getty Museum in Pacific Palisades, Dennis Tito lives alone in one of L.A.'s poshest pads. He surrounds himself with the good things in life--a tennis court and pool, European antiques, tapestries and chandeliers. He parks his Ferrari in an eight-car garage.

I disagree vehemently with George Skelton's opinion regarding the Supreme Court's decision on open primaries (Aug. 7). It is not wrongheaded. I am a registered Democrat because this party represents, if not always 100%, my own political views. I do not want anyone who is not a Democrat having any say in my party's candidate selection. Political parties are designed to bring like-minded people together and form a consensus. If you were unhappy with your party's primary candidates, then I suggest re-registering in a different party or creating your own. That's what Ross Perot did. If you think there's no difference between the parties, then you really haven't been paying attention for the last eight years, and if you're so discouraged that it keeps you from voting, good!

As he talks Reform Party politics, Michael Farris deflates like a leaky balloon. He glumly ponders party heavyweights such as Pat Buchanan, Jesse Ventura and John Hagelin--a physicist who says he can run the country by harnessing the laws of nature--and wonders where it all went wrong. The Newbury Park resident, who is chairman of the party's nominating panel, was once a true believer.

Supporters of Reform Party founder Ross Perot are turning up the pressure on him to run for president to help boost his besieged party's credibility, but the Texas billionaire is showing no interest in a third bid for the White House. Reform Party members who say a Perot candidacy will help boost the party's stature argued that his silence is reason enough to go forward with efforts to draft him into the race. Patrick J. Buchanan, a former Republican, is seeking the presidential nomination.
