Linda Hope is mistaken in your cover story "The Road to Ninety" (TV Times, May 9). NBC's peacock only goes back to the '50s, when the network went into color broadcasting. No, the only NBC symbol that's been around longer than Bob Hope is the chimes. Thomas D. Bratter, Los Angeles

Re Tom Shales' commentary "Slamming the Door on 'Today' " (TV Times, July 3). Absolutely right on! "The Today Show's" "window on the world" seems as though Paddy Chayefsky's "Network" has been reincarnated as a television series. Larry Paulson, Sherman Oaks

We thank you for writing about our production, "The Panama Deception" (TV Times, Jan. 4). However, we are now headquartered in Chapel Hill, N.C., not Santa Monica. BARBARA TRENT Empowerment Project Chapel Hill, N.C.

The Richard A. Perkins letter (TV Times, May 12) trashing Bill Moyers has inspired me to write a letter of praise to my favorite TV hero since Edward R. Morrow. Nobody on the air today is as conscientious, sincere and prolific as Bill Moyers. I especially express my gratitude for his intellectual prowess to KCET. Marjorie A. Gross, Laguna Hills

In light of the terrible tabloiding of television (TV Times, Aug. 11), I suppose it can be said that if television once had a "Golden Age" and it was still called a "wasteland," what we're now witnessing is the Sordid Age of the medium and it wouldn't hurt to call it a toxic waste dump. Rickey C. Mantley, Los Angeles

I think Scott Simon (TV Times, Oct. 25) is the perfect person for the weekend "Today" (NBC) show. He's easy to listen to and he reminds me of a young Charles Kuralt. He informs the viewer with a well-told story without the hype. Martin Ostrye, Arcadia

How could you forget Jason Alexander of "Seinfeld" in the story "First-Rate Second Bananas" (TV Times, July 26)? He is by far the most talented supporting actor on television and a major part of the show. Jean Lawrence, Beverly Hills

Re TV Times' article on Rick Schroder (April 25, "Call of the Wild"): Call him Rick. Call him Ricky. I don't care. Just call his agent and tell him not to send him out anymore. He can't act. Tom A. Zoerner, Torrance

I just want to confirm the impression made by your Chuck Norris article (TV Times, April 18). As a former bartender at the L.A. Music Center I came across quite a few celebrities. Norris, who had a Coca-Cola, was both the nicest and the least stuck-up famous person I served. Tom Haggerty, Hollywood
