Gustavo Gorriti is correct in condemning U.S. anti-coca efforts in his column "Coca Won't Die Easily in Peru" (Op-Ed Page, Sept. 19). Why does it always seem to be the case that only foreigners seem to be capable of perceiving the folly engendered by our government leaders? We have the relatively recent record of Vietnam as a cogent example to guide us in what amounts to yet another attempt to win the hearts and minds of peasant (coca) farmers.

Financially ailing Tucson Electric Power Co. on Wednesday filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Southern California Edison Co. in connection with Edison's 1988 proposed merger with San Diego Gas & Electric Co., a move that eventually derailed Tucson Electric's previously proposed merger with SDG&E. The suit seeks damages, interest payments and attorneys' fees that could total "hundreds of millions of dollars," Tucson Electric spokesman Roger Yohem said.

There is dramatic new evidence that environmentalists are right in saying everything is connected to everything else. Light bills in Los Angeles, it turns out, are connected to smog in the Grand Canyon that on some winter days makes it hard to see from one rim to the other. Both, in turn, are connected to tap water in Phoenix and Tucson. A suit by the Environmental Defense Fund has made the connections clear.

Time is running out for talks aimed at keeping open a coal-fired power plant that supplies more than 7% of the electricity consumed by Southern California Edison Co. customers. The Mohave Generating Station in Laughlin, Nev., is scheduled to close on New Year's Eve and should remain mothballed for at least four years, Edison said in a recent report to the California Public Utilities Commission.

A state Public Utilities Commission law judge has recommended that San Diego Gas & Electric customers not be charged for $29 million of expensive electric power that the utility in recent years imported over a transmission line that connects it with utilities in Southwest states. SDG&E will ask the PUC to reject the law judge's recommendation, according to utility spokesman Lee Haney.

O. Morris Sievert, who last month resigned from the San Diego Gas & Electric board of directors to protest a proposed merger with Rosemead-based Southern California Edison, on Tuesday expressed doubts that regulators will approve the $2.4-billion merger. "It is difficult to believe that (regulators) would ultimately consider the merger in the public interest," he said in a four-page statement released by his attorney.

By burning cheap oil in its South Bay and Encina electric generating plants, San Diego Gas & Electric has reversed its role as an electric-poor utility and started generating enough electricity to meet its own power needs and make occasional electric sales to other utilities.

It's fairly clear how heavy industry will take advantage of the post- monopoly market for electricity that the Public Utilities Commission said this week it plans to establish in California. But it is far from certain how small businesses and residential customers will shop for electricity in 1999 and 2002, respectively, when they join the system. "No matter how smart we are, we don't know how the market will develop," PUC Commissioner P. Gregory Conlon said Thursday.
