In our surreal White House, President Clinton thinks he is the Comeback Kid. I have it from reliable sources that he is really Humpty Dumpty. VIRGINIA MARTIN Desert Hot Springs

The people running the White House, Congress and the courts seem to be a mix of Katzenjammer Kids, Our Gang comedy and the Keystone Cops. No wonder I have the heebie-jeebies. VIRGINIA MARTIN Desert Hot Springs

The death of Virginia McMartin (Dec. 19) brought back memories of our life in Manhattan Beach. My family lived in the community for 25 years and both our sons attended the McMartin Pre-school. It was a happy time. Mrs. McMartin and her daughter Peggy as well as the other teachers were a caring, dedicated and respected group of teachers. The paranoia that later developed and spread throughout the town was a shameful episode and can only be described as a local McCarthyism, exacerbated by a self-serving district attorney.

Virginia McMartin, founder of the McMartin Pre-school where charges of child molestation sparked the longest and costliest criminal prosecution in U.S. history, has died. She was 88. The feisty McMartin, who attended the lengthy proceedings in her wheelchair, died Sunday night in Torrance after a series of strokes. She was pronounced dead, apparently of heart failure, at Little Company of Mary Hospital shortly after paramedics transported her there from her Torrance home.

A day of testimony punctuated with outbursts from McMartin Pre-School founder Virginia McMartin, 82, was stricken by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William Pounders Friday, and three hours of excerpts from her earlier videotaped testimony was presented to the jury in its place. Pounders said the woman's "contumacious conduct" in his courtroom had come close to forcing him to cite her for contempt and jail her for two days, an action he did not want to take because of her health and her age.
