Sen. Pete Wilson (R-Calif.) lost my vote when he killed the California desert bill which would have protected our desert for all Californians to enjoy now and in the future ("Desert Bill Dies; Cranston and Wilson Blame Each Other," Part I, July 8). Wilson has caved in to the big-money development interests and the off-road terrorists who view the desert only as something to be destroyed in pursuit of a fast buck or a cheap thrill. How can the politician Wilson expect people to vote for him as an "environmentalist" when he refuses to help protect our state's environment?

Your coverage of Sen. Pete Wilson is pathetically polite and toothless. Have you forgotten that Wilson is still the junior senator from California and will be called on to vote on some very tough issues this fall?

Does Wilson have any proposal for balancing the federal budget? If Wilson believes that we should cut federal spending, where should the cuts come from--education, health care, social spending or defense?

"In my view, the will of the people--as expressed quite clearly this past June--should be carried out," Feinstein said, in a letter sent to Malibu's unofficial City Council.
