Real estate consultant Sanford Goodkin's worst prediction came in baseball, when he forecast that the Brooklyn Dodgers would win the 1941 World Series. The Yankees beat the Dodgers that year, four games to one. But in real estate projections, he's almost letter perfect. "I projected the real estate boom of 1976-79 in California during the national (real estate) depression of 1974-75," said Goodkin, who is based in Del Mar and has written and consulted on real estate for more than 20 years.

During a lunch break, a couple of construction workers on the new $60-million addition to Fashion Island were lounging in their pickup trucks, observing midday shoppers, when a gold Mercedes-Benz coupe streaked by with a bumper sticker that read "Born to Shop." "I've lost count of Mercedes," one construction worker was overheard saying to his buddy. "But that's the first born-again shopper I've seen today." There may soon be many more such shoppers.

Where's the market for home automation? Today it's clearly with yuppies. San Diego real estate guru Sanford Goodkin says their penchant for self-pampering, obsessive need to control their environments and high degree of technological comfort have combined to make them far more accepting of electronic household devices. And Goodkin predicts that as the group slowly grays, it will find even more reasons to embrace home automation.

Re "Plenty of Lines, but No Limits," Oct. 13: We cannot change human nature, but we can improve our behavior. At age 17, Shadee Malaklou is to be celebrated. We meet bigots and uninformed people -- most of them salvageable, some of them savage, but you, young lady, are the illumination we need -- not just your friends. We are who we are, but we are more than that; capable of becoming wiser, becoming kinder, bringing new breadth to human nature itself. You, dear lady, keep shedding your light and enlightenment and do not let anything or anyone discourage you as we all need your love and innocence to supply us to energize our hope.

Re Scott Martelle's article on Ramon Eduardo Ruiz ("A Present From Mexico's Past," Nov. 3), how beautiful and wise this man is. We gringos look at Mexico as filled with Mexicans--all of whom, we feel, are gardeners or children of gardeners. We build walls to keep "them" out, forgetting that we are the agricultural leader of the world and that we cannot do it without their hard work. We should be grateful that they bring new generations into our hemisphere, often educated in our colleges, children of parents who are gentle and have a dedication to their kids' education and comfort.
