Re "Ballot Issues? Local TV Can't Find the Time," editorial, Oct. 8: Personally, I am much more interested in learning more about local, state and national political issues than I am about criminal activity, celebrity personalities and their latest gossip. We live in the most information-rich society but are the least informed on issues that truly matter, primarily because the television and journalism communities do not in general make an effort to educate people on a regular basis on the issues that have the potential to affect our collective lives.

The setting was a 1940s-style Hollywood supper club. Couples in tuxes and glittery ball gowns sat at linen-covered tables adorned with teeny lamps. Palm tree shadows danced on the walls. And up on the stage--romantically lighted in hues of lavender, blue and violet--stood the singing seductress, a little lady with a big name: Florencia Bisenta de Casillas Martinez Cardona. But to us, she's simply Vikki Carr. And this place on this night is not really the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton.
