Kam Kuwata, one of California's leading Democratic political strategists and a droll wit whose colorful quotes and keen analyses enlivened many campaigns, was found dead in his Venice condominium Monday. He was 57. Police were called to investigate when family and friends grew concerned after not hearing from Kuwata for several days. The cause of death was not known, but a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman, Sgt. Ron Pickering, said there was no evidence of foul play. Kuwata's death brought an outpouring of shock and fond remembrance from strategists for both major parties, as well as reporters who knew him as both a source and occasional verbal sparring partner.

In response to "Keating Asks Senate Panel for Immunity" (Part A, Nov. 18): If we have a choice, can we grant immunity to Sen. Cranston? I need to recover some money from American Continental and my chances will be diminished if Charles Keating is granted immunity. GRETCHEN TRENT Granada Hills

The devil made me do it has apparently been replaced by Ms. Hume with "the system made me do it." Right and wrong do not depend on the magnitude or degree of the temptation. There is individual responsibility. MITZI A. BROWN, Newport Beach

Most knew him as a Democratic Party activist who was deeply involved in California politics during the Jimmy Carter years. He rubbed shoulders with the party elite, including Gov. Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown Jr. and U.S. Sen. Alan Cranston. During the 1976 presidential campaign, he described taking part in a three-hour strategy session with Cranston, Brown and presidential hopeful Carter at the Pacific Hotel near Los Angeles International Airport.

Morrison states that the word liberal has faded from the national political glossary. Translated this means that the liberal press has dropped the word when describing liberal politicians and has substituted the word moderate in its place, while at the same time dropping the word conservative and replacing it with ultra-conservative or right-winger .

"Compromise" is a relative term, and nowhere is that more apparent than in The Times' editorial "An Unnecessarily Arid Approach to the Desert" (Aug. 9). The Times' apparent view is that anything less that Sen. Alan Cranston's mark of roughly 7.5 million acres (actually 9.2 million when you add in his proposal for an East Mojave National Monument) falls short of a reasonable compromise. I have to differ. For the record, let me restate what I have offered in negotiations with Sen. Cranston in an effort to reach a comprehensive and workable compromise.
