Tom Shales in his commentary (TV Times, Aug. 2) wonders if the Republicans are going to show "sickening" anti-abortion films at their convention. Does he deem these films "sickening" because Republicans may show them, or could it be that abortion itself is so repugnant that to see it on film is actually sickening? A pro-life, anti-abortionist Democrat would like to know. Marina C. Barnett, Encino

It is sickening that cage-raised pheasants are released for a few moments of freedom only to be gunned down by a "hunter." But I find it much more sickening that The Times chose to run a full-color photo of a pheasant having its body blown to pieces by a shotgun blast from a "hunter" ("Pheasant Hunting by Prado Dam," Feb. 8).

"Quick, Turn On Action News" has made us give up anything to do with Channel 2 (KCBS). I mean everything, not just the news broadcasts, because KCBS sneaks it between shows, during shows and any other time it can. It is sickening. Betty Perry, Marina del Rey

Monster mansions, fancy restaurants with prices to match, overeating "pig-outs" and promenading by those who are affluent but greedy seekers of publicity have been sickening to those of us who must live on our small incomes. They don't seem to care about the elderly, the ill, the disabled and homeless children. ANN W. BRODFUEHRER Ramona

A Bankruptcy Court judge approved W.R. Grace & Co.'s agreement to reimburse the government $250 million for the investigation and cleanup of asbestos contamination in Libby, Mont. The company agreed in March to settle the claim for the past and future cleanup of contaminated schools, homes and businesses in Libby. The contamination has been blamed for sickening hundreds of people, some of whom have died.

Re "Thousands of Latinos March in Washington," Oct. 13: As a Hispanic/Latino American (correction, as an American of Hispanic descent), I want to apologize to the other 255 million Americans who witnessed the outrageous display of blind pride, disunity and sickening flag-waving nationalism in our nation's capital. We (Americans) are sure that your home countries will welcome each and every one of you back, with open arms and a hero's parade down the Plaza de la Libertad, Revolucion, Simon Bolivar, Che Guevara, Kennedy, etc., etc., etc. "America, love it or leave it."
