Jean Kennedy Smith is one of the busiest women in Ireland these days, with a heavy work load of official business as U.S. ambassador punctuated with frequent invitations to in Irish social occasions. In addition, she is preparing for President Bill Clinton's first visit to Ireland on Dec. 1 and 2--and the first visit by any U.S. President to Northern Ireland. Shy, yet given to wide grins and laughter, the 67-year-old, auburn-haired ambassador has been highly popular among the Irish.

After reading Sigmund Downey's psychoanalytic hanging of Mike Tyson (June 13), I suggest you move his column to the Life & Style section. No one defends Mike Tyson as a model citizen, but it doesn't take a Ph.D. to figure out his conviction was not an uncontested slam dunk. He deserves his day in court without Dr. Downey taking Freudian cheap shots from 2,000 miles away. MARC O'BRIEN Malibu Tyson was not tried and convicted of being a "raging bully," nor for what he may or may not have done to his former wife, Robin Givens, nor for anything he may or may not have said to heavyweight Razor Ruddock.

A bloodied William Kennedy Smith, who was acquitted two years ago on rape charges in Florida, was arrested and charged with assault and battery early Saturday after a brawl at a suburban Virginia nightclub and restaurant. Smith, the 33-year-old nephew of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.), was released on his promise to appear on Dec. 3 in the Arlington County Criminal Court. The incident occurred about 1:30 a.m.

I could have cheered while reading Pamela A. Rucker's "As Women, We're Responsible for the Messages We Send" (Platform, Feb. 18). She had the courage to put her words into print, while I had hesitated fearing condemnation by female friends and fellow or non-fellow colleagues. I want to tell Anita Hill that I believed her. I never had sympathy for "blue dot," because I couldn't see her eyes. William Kennedy Smith seemed like the victim to me. Now, there's another victim--Mike Tyson.

Forgetting the fact that Mike Tyson should have been in jail for earlier crimes, he was convicted Monday not because William Kennedy Smith was found not guilty, not because Clarence Thomas was approved by Congress, and certainly not because he was black. He was convicted because he was guilty. JAMES R. EWING, Santa Monica
