Re "In Texas, Cloning Advance Comes on Little Cat Feat," Feb. 15: Considering how many unwanted litters of kittens are born for free, why spend $20,000 to reproduce one (albeit adorable) cat? That is stupid science. Susan Campbell Los Angeles

Re "Mexico's Border-Crossing Tips Anger Some in U.S.," Jan. 4: Criminal behavior is not only condoned by Mexico's corrupt government, but officials distribute how-to manuals. We are at war with the wrong nation. Our real enemy is next door. Susan Campbell Los Angeles Mexico should be ashamed of printing booklets that help its citizens violate our immigration laws. But I suppose "shame" isn't part of the Mexican vocabulary. I can't use the words to best describe the Mexican government and its illegal citizens, at least not here.

Re "Trapped in Trailer, 18 Migrants Die," May 15: Sympathy for the victims is the first reaction to this tragedy. Yet those who made up the "human cargo" chose to do business with the unscrupulous coyotes who left them for dead. The sad truth is, if the illegal aliens had just stayed home, they'd all still be alive. Susan Campbell Los Angeles

Re "Cut in HUD Funds a Blow to Poor," Feb. 29: Diana Machado said she's being punished for being poor. But the real victims of the Section 8 subsidies suspension are the children. They're born to women who lack the resources to properly care for them -- yet who continue to irresponsibly reproduce regardless of their desperate circumstances. Susan Campbell Los Angeles

Re "Another Ambush Hero Enjoys Smaller Spotlight," Nov. 2: Thanks for giving Pfc. Patrick Miller some press. But the fact that the most telegenic former POW, Pfc. Jessica Lynch, is reaping a bounty of fame and fortune rather than Miller highlights the superficiality of our society. Susan Campbell Los Angeles Pfc. Miller's heroism deserves the Medal of Honor.

Denying reality was easy when Beatrice Wood made a grand entrance at her 105th birthday celebration in Ojai on March 3 (obituary, March 13). True, she was in a wheelchair and her state of health was rather frail. Yet, her inner radiance shone through, and the luminous pottery that she created reflected that same illumination. Beato's appearance and her appreciative delight in the eclectic gathering was very reassuring and made her passing unexpected. Beatrice Wood was an exceptional woman who followed her own avant-garde road with an open mind, as well as a caring heart.

I applaud Earvin "Magic" Johnson's "I'm happy with me" attitude--his real "magic" (" 'Magic Hour' Third Failed Try to Copy Hall's Success," by Greg Braxton, Aug. 8). When I watched "The Magic Hour," there were moments when I cringed at his fractured statements and lack of hosting skills. However, I relished the quality of genuine sincerity that Magic radiated--precisely because he wasn't a polished performer. I'm sick of canned and slick shows. SUSAN CAMPBELL Los Angeles The cancellation of "The Magic Hour," "Vibe" and "The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show," despite what some Hollywood execs would like to make us believe, was not because America doesn't want another black talk-show host.

Like their Texas neighbors, Oklahomans are reputed to follow only two sports: football and spring football. For them, watching college tennis rates slightly below watching tumbleweeds blow by. Tom Peck, the women's tennis coach at Oklahoma, said the largest crowd his team draws might be 100. Despite all of that, Susan Campbell, the No. 2 singles player on the Cal State Northridge women's tennis team, will transfer to Oklahoma with a scholarship in the fall. And she's excited about her decision.
