ROSS WHO?: Republican and Democratic presidential strategists say their campaigns initially intend to respond to Ross Perot's candidacy in identical fashions: Ignore him. . . . An aide to Vice President Dan Quayle, who launched the sharpest attacks on Perot earlier this year, said the GOP brain trust wants to see how the Texas billionaire affects the polls before resuming any criticism of him.

"Rich Question for Voters" (editorial, April 12) once again does injustice to Ross Perot's candidacy by saying that his money gave him an advantage in the campaign. While it is true that Perot used $60 million of his own money, the Republican and Democratic candidates had over $60 million--from federal funds, PACs and special interests, and from their respective parties. Perot had to spend a lot of his funds just to have his name appear on the ballot. Whenever anybody chooses to run as a third-party candidate, he is automatically penalized, especially regarding funding.

Sununu's column offered a disingenuous analysis of the Perot candidacy. He makes obscure literary references rather than admit Perot has voter appeal because he rejects the governor's standard of ethical conduct. Sununu should be reminded of Christoph Wieland's "Too much light often blinds gentlemen of this sort. They cannot see the forest for the trees." KEVIN H. PARK North Hollywood
