Gov. George Deukmejian, continuing to press Mayor Tom Bradley on reductions in authorized police personnel in Los Angeles, said the mayor "had to know going in" that city voters would reject a special tax to hire more officers. The governor used the backdrop of cranes and earthmovers at a Kern County jail construction site to dramatize his campaign-like swipe at Bradley, who is expected to challenge Deukmejian for the governorship next year.

In the wake of Mayor Tom Bradley's announcement Thursday that he will not seek a sixth term, community leaders and city officials who have worked with Bradley over the years commented on his legacy after 19 years in office. "He's leaving the city at a cliff that's going straight down one mile. He's been able to run for so long because he could continue to spend more money than the city could produce. We are at a point where he doesn't know how to squeeze any more juice out of the turnip.

Geraldine A. Ferraro, the savvy New York Democrat who was embraced as a symbol of women's equality in 1984 when she became the first woman nominated for vice president by a major party, died Saturday at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. She was 75. The cause was complications from multiple myeloma, her family said. Ferraro was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an incurable form of blood cancer, in 1998. She did not disclose her illness publicly until 2001, when she went on NBC's "Today" show and said she had beaten the cancer into remission with thalidomide, the once-banned drug that had proven effective with some end-stage cancers.

I was pleased to read The Times' editorial since it endorses the same basic reforms for regulating insurance companies that I called for several months ago. All that was lacking from The Times' editorial was my proposal for a freeze on all insurance rate increases until the state can establish an aggressive and comprehensive system for regulating insurance rates.

For months the Tom Bradley International Terminal at the Los Angeles International Airport has been in disarray as construction workers labored to remodel the building, which opened in time for the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles. On Wednesday, the five-level terminal was rededicated to showcase the airport's $14-million update of the building, which has new restaurants and eating areas, new retail shops and additional seating.

I thought that Mel Durslag would join the rest of us in expressing delight with our successful effort to win the 1993 Super Bowl for Southern California. Instead, Mr. Durslag wrote the astoundingly uninformed column (March 23) complaining that the 1993 Super Bowl game should be held in the Coliseum instead of the Rose Bowl. Mr. Durslag apparently doesn't know that the Coliseum will be in the midst of a full-scale, $200-million renovation in January, 1993, and will thus not be available for the Super Bowl.

The letters recently published (August 29) in The Times on proposed plans to design and build a privately funded monument, which will artistically celebrate the ethnic and cultural diversity of Los Angeles, express criticisms that are based on misconceptions about the Gateway project. The committee that I appointed to conceive, design and build a welcoming symbol to those who have come to Los Angeles over the past 207 years--and who because of their richly diverse cultural backgrounds have enriched the life of this city--was given the freedom to develop their ideas for the project.

The winding Los Angeles River offers a unique chance for the city to create a recreational field of dreams for our residents. In the last year, since I announced my intention of constructing bike paths, picnic areas and other recreational opportunities along the banks of the river, great progress has been made. Unfortunately, a recent Los Angeles Times magazine column ("Greening the L.A. River," by Harry Shearer, May 20) distorted the facts and attempted to ridicule our efforts.

Regarding "Making Sense of Maureen," by Leonard Bernstein and Barry M. Horstman (Dec.10): Poor Maureen. She has been in office only 3 1/2 years and hasn't solved all of the road, sewer, homeless and drug problems. What a bad job she is doing as the mayor of San Diego. How wonderful is Tom Bradley, Mayor of Los Angeles? Our sewer is outdated, we're still dumping raw sewage in Santa Monica Bay, the drug traffic is out of control, streets are a mess, political payoffs are rampant.
