China denied accusations by Reps. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.) and Christopher H. Smith (R-N.J.) that it had hacked into their computers, saying it wasn't capable of such cyber-crime. "Is there any evidence? . . . Do we have such advanced technology? Even I don't believe it," Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said. Wolf and Smith said Wednesday that their office computers had been hacked into by people working from China. Both are critics of China's human rights record.

In reality, the same ranchers and hunters John Balzar consulted ("Animal Populations Put Parks in a Bind," Part A, Dec. 17) are the source of the problem. Until they drop their opposition to the restoration of the gray wolf to Yellowstone, we can look forward to annual scenes of hunters lined up like firing squads and mowing down buffalo. For tens of thousands of years the wolf has been the key component in keeping prey base populations in balance to any ecosystem the wolf is indigenous to. We can no longer plead ignorance in barring his return to Yellowstone.

Both Don Shirley's Aug. 14 review of Mark Wolf's "Another American: Asking and Telling" and Phil Cooke's Counterpunch ("As Plays Get Preachy, the Story Sometimes Gets Lost," Aug. 20) miss the point. Each year the U.S. military fires more than 1,000 people because of their sexual orientation. Having interviewed 200 victims of military discrimination, Wolf humanizes their stories and explains how a government institution has destroyed their lives. If such storytelling does not move the debate forward, then what will?

It's a gray, foreboding afternoon on a recent Sunday. Hungarian director Marta Meszaros and her crew have set up shop on the 18th floor of an office building in this Canadian city, tilting their camera through a Plexiglas window toward the distant street. There, practically in miniature, a half-dozen extras cluster on a curb, ready to cross on cue. On a diagonal corner, barely discernable, a silver, slithery, four-legged creature also waits, poised for action.

I enjoyed your article on wolves (Part I, Nov. 2). You presented a well-researched and informative piece. The issue of reintroduction of the wolf touches upon our commitment to a real natural preserve, not sanitized to serve particular economic or recreational interests. Management of the wolves, cattle and indemnification can resolve the problems for the ranchers. Predators are often convenient targets in instances of range and stock mismanagement. Certainly, there is ample evidence that the deer and elk populations will benefit from the return of their most skillful manager, the wolf.
