Duh! Of course, the Food and Drug Administration will promote corn products when its cronies are planting corn on millions of acres ["Corn Oil -- Good for You?, April 16]. The government did the same thing with the food pyramid -- promoting farmers' interests and creating a nation of overweight, corn-fed people. STEPHANY YABLOW North Hollywood

Re: "Language Barrier Can Get in the Way of Proper Care" (April 29), the report focuses on patients who don't speak English. I have a larger concern about health care providers (at all levels) who don't speak the language. STEPHANY YABLOW Sherman Oaks

Regarding "Renters Want Nonsmoking Sections" [Update, Sept. 12]: Creating nonsmoking sections in an apartment building would create an undue burden on the landlord. Units could remain vacant in either section far longer than necessary, depriving a landlord of a fair return on his investment. The landlord may have a perfectly good rental in the "smoking section" available but would have to wait for weeks until a smoker comes along and rents that particular unit while nonsmokers are being turned away.

Re "N.J. Governor Quits Over Gay Affair," Aug. 13: Is Gov. James E. McGreevey apologizing for just having an extramarital affair or having an extramarital affair with a man? His resignation is a stupid move and sends a bad message. There is no correlation between having an extramarital affair (with a person of either gender) and one's performance on the job; who knows, it may even enhance it. Such conduct affects the spouses, not the constituents. When is this country going to grow up?

What is missing from your report is that most of the Mexicans who sent this astronomical number of dollars to Mexico more likely than not are illegal immigrants who do not pay taxes but receive social services and medical services, and whose kids go to our schools ("Mexicans in U.S. Send Record $13.3 Billion Back Home, Propping Up Weak Economy," Jan. 31). On top of that, $13.3 billion was not put back into our economy but supported Mexico's economy. Mexican President Vicente Fox has no incentive to reform his economy when he enjoys the benefits of ours.

AND Stanley Meisler's point in his review of Sargent's works ["Portrait of an Artist on Vacation," July 8] is? The exhibition is not in Los Angeles, not even in California. If I wanted an art history lesson, I would go to the library or the museum. STEPHANY YABLOW North Hollywood

'Y'all clearly have lost your collective minds. Front-page story, with photos of two foreign cars at $130,000 each, while unemployment claims are up 18,000, gasoline prices still at a stratospheric high, even Starbucks closing stores. Is a $130,000 sports car really news?' -- Stephany Yablow, North Hollywood, on Friday's Rumble Seat review of luxury sports cars

Obviously Stephany Yablow ["Keating Prosecution Seen as a Waste of $3 Billion," Letters, Oct. 8, Business], questioning the Keating prosecution, did not hear anguished testimony from the many victims of Keating's scam. Testimony, under oath, heard by the Los Angeles County special grand jury. The evidence was more than overwhelming against Keating. Twenty-five jury members (including myself) agreed unanimously and voted to indict. Only an unscrupulous scoundrel would prey on the elderly and defenseless.

In the article "Builders Seek End to Tariffs on Cement" (Aug. 12), what jumped out at me was the statement "American producers lack capacity to meet domestic demand." The answer to the cement shortage, therefore, lies in increased domestic production that would create jobs here and not simply lifting tariffs to import cement more cheaply from other nations.
