In the Aug. 29 Metro section you reported: 1) "Council OKs Hike in Tax on Businesses" 2) "LAX Parking Fees to Increase Again" When will this taxation stop? Recently, every time I pick up a publication, higher taxes are being reported. Will 1990 be known as the year of "gouge the taxpayers to death"? I will vote against every incumbent currently in office. I will encourage family, friends and co-workers to do the same.

Salomon Inc. Chairman John Gutfreund says the big Wall Street investment bank is well on the road to recovery from its recent troubles, and denies Wall Street rumors that it is contemplating a leveraged buyout.

Perelman.
