Re "It's Not the Deed, It's the Hypocrisy," Commentary, May 16: According to Robert Scheer, New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani was in the midst of "moral decay" as he left a failing marriage for another woman. It's obvious that Scheer is reaching. Also, according to Scheer, no one should ever pass judgment on strip joints, winos or denounce an art exhibit if he is in Mayor Giuliani's situation. With Scheer's theory of moral relativism, no one should ever pass judgment on anything or anyone unless he is God himself.

Rudolph W. Giuliani was just five minutes into his speech criticizing President Obama's economic policies and hinting at a possible challenge in 2012 when he was interrupted by the shrill ringing of his cellphone. It was a sound that once before had tripped up the former New York mayor. During a 2007 speech to the National Rifle Assn., in the middle of his first run for president, he answered a call from his wife, sharpening the perception that he was clueless that his sometimes brusque and self-important manner could rub people the wrong way. Four years later, with the small waves of the Piscataqua River lapping the shore behind him, Giuliani pulled the phone from his pocket and glanced at the caller ID. "This is the president calling me, telling me that I'm wrong, but I'm going to wait to call him back a little later," he said to laughter, punching a button to silence the ringing.

Although George W. Bush and Rudy Giuliani are from different parts of the country and opposite sides of the track, they have in common more than Republican Party politics. Both were lifted to stratospheric heights by their responses to the challenge of Sept. 11, history placing them in the right calamity at the right time. These are different times. Bush went on to a presidency shaped so far by a crusade against terror and polarizing invasion of Iraq to smash the regime of Saddam Hussein.

In reading "Fewer Tourists Leaving Hearts in S.F." (July 27), I was surprised to see no mention of the factors that have dissuaded my wife and me from returning to San Francisco since our last visit about 15 months ago. We were dismayed at the foul streets and the swarms of panhandlers, most of them young and apparently able-bodied. When my wife remarked on the contrast between New York and San Francisco, I commented that Mayor Willie Brown is not Rudolph Giuliani and that, unlike San Francisco, New York has erected no monument to the homeless.

Responding to a new book that claims members of his family had ties to the Mafia, Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani said Thursday that his career as a federal prosecutor who cracked down on mobsters speaks for itself. "I think I'll stand on my record as having prosecuted or put in prison more members of the Mafia than probably any U.S. attorney in history, having been threatened with death by them at least three times--four times seriously going back to when I was an assistant U.S.

With his campaign besieged by questions about his business ethics and political viability, Republican gubernatorial hopeful Bill Simon Jr. on Thursday turned to his onetime boss, former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani, as a character reference. Giuliani, who was the U.S. attorney for Manhattan when Simon worked in the office in the 1980s, said his friend's character may be obscured in the rough and tumble of a political campaign.

Several relatives and friends of former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani have held on to well-paying City Hall jobs despite a change in administration and deep budget cuts. The former Giuliani aides generally have stayed on the city's payroll without attracting much public attention. This week Mayor Michael R.

Though the project still must win the approval of a series of governmental agencies, the city's support makes it a real possibility that Santa Monica architect Frank O.

Irish cheer mixed with political jeers at New York's St. Patrick's Day parade on Friday as U.S. Senate rivals Rudolph W. Giuliani and Hillary Rodham Clinton made the traditional march up Fifth Avenue before a rowdy crowd.
