Re: Fresno State Bulldog Football Schedule.
I am an avid fan of the Fresno State Bulldogs. Yet, I can't believe that you are going to go on with the game this weekend. activities nationwide and in other countries have been cancelled. how is it possible that people at Fresno state can be so callous and unfeeling for all those people who did? And especially knowing that some of those victims were valley residents. one even played on the bulldog team at one time. if the "NFL" has cancelled what makes us so special that we can't pay our respects? What kind of message do you think Fresno will be sending out that we don't give a damn?!

Re: Attack on America Celebration. It has been reported that foreign students from Fresno State were celebrating the attacks on the World Trade Center. If this is true, I'm apalled that there is not outrage from the community to these actions. For those that choose to believe this was a good thing and for those whom are not willing to fight for their county's freedom from such violence - go to a different country to live and study. Many students come to the United States to study at our colleges. It is a shame that our colleges and universities educate people who are in essence enemies to the country we live in and love. I am a veteran and father of two high school aged children. I am in the process of selecting a college for my daughter to attend in the fall. I certainly will not choose Fresno State and I will do my best to discourage any other person thinking of attending there. I have no problem with freedom of speech and strongly believe in it. I do not condone the celebration of a mass murder. - Patrick Hayes

Re: Booze at Stadium. I think what's more embarrassing, is the fact that the person who wrote this article at no time stated that he asked the other individuals around him to be more respectful. I was sitting in an area that had OSU fans in it as well, and the chants went back and forth, after all this is college football. Whenever the chants got out of hand we would let whoever yelled the obscenity know he was out of line. From time to time an individuals excitement can get out of hand especially when there is alcohol and the FRESNO STATE BULLDOGS ARE ON THEIR WAY TO A SERIOUS VICTORY but that is no excuse to let anyone get out of hand. I feel for the seventeen year old who is learning from his father to just sit idly by, while his father does the same, when he sees a wrong doing. Obviously, this is the first game that he has ever attended, no matter where you go as long as you are wearing a billboard that says you are rooting for the visiting team you will hear it, BYU is one of the worst I have ever heard. I especially liked the added "women and children left in fear for their lives", that was very dramatic, and that small section of OSU fans was closer to about 2000 people. That's fine that he doesn't want to come back, cause we only want Bulldog Faithful.

Re: Campus parking. If you think parking downtown is bad, come visit the parking lots at Fresno State for a day. The parking situation is so bad in the morning hours that many students are forced to park on the dirt near the vineyards. Even worse is that some students can only find parking all the way out on Shaw and Woodrow avenues, when their class is located closer to Cedar and Barstow avenues. That is a good 10- to 15-minute walk across campus. Many students have circumstances that do not allow an extra half-hour to find a parking spot before their classes begin. This problem is inexcusable, because it causes students to be late, which is not only a disruption, but is disrespectful to the faculty. The most outrageous aspect of this inconvenience is that we pay $68 for a parking pass per semester. That is a $12 increase from spring 2001. Fresno State has approximately 18,000 undergraduate students, most of whom do not live on campus or within walking distance. Yet each year, parking gets more out-of-control with the increase in student enrollment. A parking garage makes the most sense. With the land surrounding the campus being devoted to agriculture studies, it is clearly most beneficial to create more parking upward, rather than outward. However, even after receiving the thousands of dollars in parking fees from students (who cannot afford the excess fees to begin with) it doesn't seem like the problem of parking is being resolved. -Robin Henderson, Fresno

    Re:Dear Friends and Neighbors, Chandra Levy has been missing for nearly four months.
     I'm sorry that the pain the Levy family and Chandra's friends are feeling has grown worse with each passing day. When Chandra's dad called me to tell me she was missing, he asked for my help.
     I contacted the police to see if a reward fund would help find her. They said it would, so I helped start one. Since that day, and every day since, I have cooperated and worked with law enforcement to find Chandra. I invited the police to my apartment. I asked the FBI to help. Despite my best attempts to help the police find Chandra, some in the media have criticized me for remaining ``silent.''
     I have not been silent with those in charge of finding Chandra. I have answered every single question asked by the police and FBI.
     When tabloids turned the tragedy of Chandra's disappearance into a spectacle and rumors were reported as facts, I decided that I would not discuss my private life in the media.
      Some suggest that not talking with the media could mean I had something to do with Chandra's disappearance. I did not.
     I pray that she has not met the same fate as the other young women who have disappeared from the same neighborhood. I will be interviewed on television and hopefully I will be able to answer questions that help people understand. It is not something I look forward to. But things have gone on long enough. Before speaking to the media, I wanted to write to you. I have known so many of you for a long time.
     You know me to be hard working, committed to our issues and dedicated to my community and my family. I hope you also will understand that I am not perfect and have made my share of mistakes.
     For 30 years as local Mayor, County Supervisor, State Assemblyman and Congressman, thousands of people have come to me with their personal problems.
     A son in trouble, a mother in a nursing home, a job that was lost, a farm going broke, a mortgage that couldn't be paid. And each time, people trusted that I would treat their problems with care. I hope our relationship is strong enough to endure all of this.
     For now, I want my work in Congress to improve our communities. Please know that you can still bring me your concerns and your problems. Thank you for the kindness you have shown Carolyn and my family.
-Sincerely, Gary Condit

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Nazi Slave Labor. An accord was recently announced between German corporations and Jewish organizations whereby companies that used Nazi slave labor would pay $5 billion in reparations. This was hailed as a triumph for justice. But I was one of those slave laborers, and I don't believe the settlement was just. During World War II, I was a 13-year-old boy given to the Germany construction company Holzmann as a slave by the Nazi government. I didn't even have a name; I was Jew No. 82191. My dad was No. 82192; he had stood in line behind me when the numbers were given out. There were 9,000 or 10,000 of us from Lithuania who were loaded into freight cars and shipped to Landsberg, a town in Bavaria, where Holzmann was building an underground factory to build jet fighters for Hitler's air force. Hitler desperately needed the jets, so work went on 24 hours a day, in 12-hour shifts, seven days a week. There were no days off, no holidays. We lived on starvation diets, for food, unlike Jewish workers, cost money. When people died, others were brought in to replace them. The factory was never finished. I was liberated after slightly more than a year of slave labor--my father had died three weeks earlier. I came to America five years later and became a U.S. citizen. Holzmann is now the second-largest company in Germany and has a large U.S. operation. What does Holzmann owe me? I worked 84 hours a week when the minimum wage for unskilled labor in Germany was about 50 cents an hour. Not allowing for overtime, it would total roughly $2,500 for the 14 months I was there. A dollar in 1944 is worth about $15 now, but let's be generous and say $10, so that's $25,000. Add to this compound interest at a minimal 3% per year, and you end up with $80,000 to $100,000 in unpaid wages. After a recent California law abolished the statute of limitations in such cases, I joined about 40 ex-slaves in California, and we found a lawyer representatives of several Jewish organizations have reached an agreement with German corporations that, in return for $5 billion, will settle all claims forever. (So far Holzmann hasn't agreed to contribute anything to the fund.) This arrangement has the approval of the U.S. government, which has promised to go to court to object to any future demands against the German corporations. Some news reports guess that the compensation may amount to about $8,000 a slave after the lawyers and the organizations skim off their share. I have already pledged to donate to charity anything I get. But I never authorized any organization to negotiate on my behalf, or on my father's. Of course some ex-slaves will accept the agreement; that is their right. But I want the opportunity to confront Holzmann directly and to have my compensation decided in court by a jury of my peers. This opportunity appears to have been foreclosed.

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Purdue University critic. Your article about David Stoll's critique of I, Rigoberta Menchú correctly points out his argument that Rigoberta Menchú could not have lived events as she describes. Nowhere did you suggest that atrocities and injustices like she describes never happened. The e-mail writer of Purdue University gives the false impression that you do. Such tactics only embolden and enflame reactions on the left. It also seems evident that your Bulldog Newspaper story was reviewing a Stoll's critique of Menchú's book, not Menchú's book itself. A misleading distinction was raised in the Purdue University criticism about what might be called "literal truths" and "larger truths"--that regardless of what happened to Rigoberta Menchú, her narrative rings true to the plight of Maya in Guatemala and to the struggle for social justice in Latin America. Like many of my colleagues at Dartmouth, I stopped teaching Ms. Menchú's book a several years ago precisely because I found it rang true for students for all the wrong reasons by playing on their romanticized stereotypes of egalitarian--and oppressed--Indians who spontaneously rise up against their oppressors, just as we would like to imagine we would do in their place. No community, Indian or otherwise, could prove as ideal as Ms. Menchú describes before the violence, or as spontaneously mobilized once it began, but her story had the power to erase an entire term's discussion of the more complex ways such communities could be both solidary and divisive, nasty and nice to themselves and others as complex, contradictory collections of "real" human individuals. I find it ironic that some who would stand by Ms. Menchú's narrative right or wrong in the name of multiculturalism would be the first to suspect such an authoritative, homogenous voice in the work of a colleague, especially when devoted to some "larger truth." Too bad that Purdue University opted for the easy, soft headed, deceptive and incomplete can of worms to throw at you and missed an opportunity to engage more fully the questions Stoll's book and your review of May 17, 1999 raise. - JS, Columbia

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Rigoberta Menchu Op-Ed. Perhaps we should send some anthropologists into Israel to gather proof that the Bible is a fraud. I'd rather not, since for the most part I recognize the difference between fraud and representation. As an important book about both factual and fictitious events, the Bible is possibly the best thing ever written -- Rigoberta Menchu's piece doesn't even come close. As an autobiography, though, the Bible's got to be a big hoax, right? I mean, isn't God supposed to remain a mystery? Don't worry, I don't count Rigoberta's work as comparable to the bible. That would just give your paper all it needed to write me off as an atheistic liberal, wouldn't it? You might say that I could compare it to, say, a newspaper -- which is also chock full of fiction and hyperbole (in the editorials, for instance)....I think that maybe your "conservative voice on campus" should first concern itself with proper comma placement...then issue its editorials about fraud...You are unprofessional, Ms. Williams, and a poor excuse for an editor. ...I realize we have a "difference of opinion." I am fully aware that your editor approved your piece. I am not surprised that you received positive responses to it (though I doubt "hundreds"); many so-called conservatives are ill-informed, selective readers who shore up their ignorance about Latin America as a way of chasing down anyone they perceive as "liberal." My recommendation would be for you to drop out of college for a while, stop getting your politics from disc jockeys, and possibly join the Peace Corps or some other organization that might teach you where the people live who you are so bent on chasing down.

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Bulldog Neewspaper Editorial Policy. I'm not so sure I can completely agree with the conservative bent of the Daily Bulldog; I'm a moderate. I certainly believe in freedom of speech and applaud "The Daily Bulldog's" for providing an honest look at conservative (read, preserve the status quo by any means necessary) views. As a liberterian, you'll understand and respect what I'm about to say...not being into being PC and all. Some of the opinions your publication publishes, I can I can agree on but others appear to me to be anti-anyone who is not white, male, heterosexual, protestant, elite. Don't get me wrong; I don't really approve of gays cramming their lifestyle down our throats but I didn't want to know all of the lewd, lascivious events that took place in the White House by Clinton who was after anything with fallopian tubes, either. I'm too polite to say what I think about Monica Lewinsky. The entire debacle was voyeurism at its worst and an ugly display of partisan politics. The fact that the American public's wish to have this entire salacious affair end far sooner than it did was not missed. If Clinton was exposed as the pervert he is, then all of the hounds barking up the Hill should be, too. Should people who live in glass Houses really be hurling bricks? While, I think Clinton is the epitomy of a poon-hound, you can't argue the fact that the American economy is in significantly better condition than it was left by the previous administration under his. It's thriving in a way it hasn't, well, since Clintons idol and fellow poon-hound ruled America. Yes, JFK. I also don't agree that white men are being discriminated against and denied opportunity because they are white and male. That's a joke! Look at the stats...hell, look at TV! White men still predominate everywhere. It is still true that over 95% of the CEO's of major corporations and the executives that serve under them are white and male. Most doctors, lawyers, professors and even construction foremen are white and male. It isn't because white men are smarter...they've just cornered the market on power in Western society in too many obscene ways to recount here. Nothing like being forced at gunpoint to remain oppressed...or by the threat of a white sheet carrying a rope with a noose in it. I mean, talk about affirmative action quotas? White men have taken affirmative action to assure that the quota of them controlling society is near 100%. And you call that fair and equal competition? -Anonomous

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re PC Speech. I recently read an article in a business journal about the efforts of a company to regain it's market share using the newest Internet technology. I remember this article because it had something in it I hadn't seen in a long time. The article referred to the company's top guy as the "chairman." "Chairman" I thought. How refreshing to see that word again after such a long time. Today every major journal, book, or other publication uses the word "Chairperson" or simply "Chair." It is just part of the on-going campaign to erase the word "man" from the English vocabulary. Every word that used to contain "man" or "men" has been changed to something more acceptable to our cultural elite. “Policeman” is now “Police Officer”, “Fireman” is now “Fire Fighter”, “Mail man” is now “Postal Worker”, etc. etc. You see, the establishment feels that if they can change the language we use, they can change the way we think. And that, of course, is the goal - to change the way you and I think. All major publications have joined in the effort. An article in Scientific American I read last week refers to a new medicine's benefit to "humankind." You see, the word "mankind" can't be used because it contains the word "man." Interestingly, though, it may be more difficult for our language police to erase the word "mankind" than other words they have targeted. This is because Neil Armstrong (inadvertently, I'm sure) cemented the word "mankind" into history with the phrase "One small step for Mankind." It will be hard for the establishment to erase that phrase from the history books (although I'm sure they will give it their best). The effort to erase the word "man" has been largely successful in most areas of this society. People are like cattle and they will stampede in whatever direction they think the herd is running. Today, the only place you will find the word "man" in the vocabulary is, perhaps, at the Selective Service department - where only "men" are slated to be drafted and sent into war. Or you might find it within the hundreds of "affirmative action" programs that government and industry have designed to specifically discriminate against men in school admissions, hiring, promotions, etc. Why have the efforts to erase the word "man" been so successful in our country? Because American men are pansies. While other groups fight for rights and try to increase their power in our society, American men are taught from an early age that they don't have a right to do the same (unless, of course, they are a man "of color"). We have accepted the establishment's judgment on this and have learned to live with it (and we like it, don’t we!). Until we wake up and stop being such suckers, the establishment will continue to succeed in their efforts. - Jeff Burhans

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Texas Tech vs. Fresno St. After attending the game last night between the Red Raiders and Bulldogs, the one thing that keeps playing over and over again in my mind is how much I admire and respect the effort Fresno St. showed. It would have been easy to give up and just "phone-in" the second half, but your team gave us all we could handle and more. The Red Raiders have been on the other side of games like this far too many times, and for once the ball bounced our way. I also saw the game against Colorado last week, and the unfortunate fumble at the end. Your team has played two very tough road games, and truthfully should be 2-0 at this point. I sincerely hope that Bulldog fans will support your team throughout the remainder of this season, as I believe you have a great team and a bowl game in your future. I am writing this now because there were only a few Bulldog fans at the game last night, and they probably would not have wanted to hear it then anyway. I am not alone in my feelings, as I read the papers and listened to radio and television reports last night and today, the one thing everyone can agree on is that the Fresno St. football team is extremely talented and tough, and never gives up. Best of luck for the rest of the season.- Nick A. Moutos, Lubbock TX

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Ford Motor Co. Chaged in Nazi Slave Labor case. Thanks for reporting on what went on during WW-II with Ford Werke AG in Germany. Many people don't know about that. I personally had not heard about this untill I read your article. It mad me think about what happened to my father and grandfather during WW-II. The day after Christmas 1944 they where captured and deported to Germany for forced labor in the factories of DEMAG AG in Benrath by Dusseldorf. He did not return untill after the liberation which was fortunately around June of 1945. My father passed away when I was 8 yrs old and he never - that I knew - talked about it to any family members. There is actually a family member left who was deported at the same time. I talked to him and discoverred that he also was deported at the same time. According to him several people froze to dead when they had to sleep outside in subzero temperatures. Also no food or medication was provided untill they started work in the german warmachine. My father, grandfather and uncle where put to work fabricating parts for the "panzer" tank and the 8.8 cm flack guns. They also where forced to work on clean-ups after the British and US bombers bombed downtown Dusseldorf. I still have his "Ausweis" , ID card that was issued by the company DEMAG. As far as my uncle told me it was brutal forced labor and the conditions where unhuman. I heard on CNN last week that a New York lawayer has filed suit against some of these companies and I am jopining this class action suit on behalf of my grandfather and my father. I hope justice will prevail and that finally restitution will be provided for the slave labor and the in human conditions they had to work in. I have been a Chevy person all my life, now I know why. I think it is discusting to find out that Ford executives had that a close and friendly relationship with this NAZI. Hope Ford will realize that they are also responsible for what the ford family really stood for. Again thanks for reporting on this issue. -Will Mooren

Viewer E-mailEditor: re Justice Lewis Powell passing. Last week retired Supreme Court justice Louis Powel died of pneumonia at the age of 90. I will always remember justice Powel as the swing vote on the court that was responsible for one of the greatest injustices in the history of this country. Since the civil rights laws were passed in 1964 establishing the right of all people to equal justice under the law, there had been those who attempted to use these laws as a cover for inflicting racism and discrimination against white males. Quietly, programs and policies began to sprout up all over the country giving preferences of one kind or another to women and minorities. Even though such policies flew in the face of the civil rights laws, they were allowed to continue. What judge Louis Powel and the Supreme Court did in 1978 (through the Bakke decision and later through the Webber decision) was to give legal sanction to these racist policies. The Supreme Court basically established two classes of individuals in this country, women and minorities who are accorded unconditional protection from discrimination in all facets of society, and white males who are denied such rights. Today discrimination against white males is rampant throughout our society. From school admissions, to scholarship awards, to business recruiting policies, to job promotions white males are routinely discriminated against. We have grown so accustomed to this that it is hard to imagine our country without affirmative action. In interviews taken since the 1978 rulings, justice Powel expressed surprise that these affirmative action decisions caused so little uproar among American white males. I suppose he felt we accepted them because we knew we were guilty and deserving of punishment. It is time that this complacency end. Americans of all classes who believe in true justice should stand up and demand that discrimination be ended once and for all. Through the political process, through political protest, and through organizations such as the American Civil Rights Coalition based in Sacramento, we must stand up together and demand an end to this legacy of "justice" Louis Powel. -Jeff Burhans, Sacramento

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Freedom of the Press. My advice to the young Cal Berkeley student reporter is - your civil rights were seriously violated. I would highly recomend that you obtain immediate legal counseland bring forth a civil rights lawsuit against the secret sevice agents that searched your apartment pursuant to the Civil Rights Act 42 USC 1983, see "Watts V. United States 394 U.S. 705" freedom of speech and the commands of the First Amendment, and "Bivins V. Six Unknown Federal Narcotics Agents 403 U.S. 388" Right to bring forth federal civil rights suit against Federal Agents. I would also seek a permanent injuction against all federal law enforcement agents from contacting you by any means,and to stay no less than 100 yards away from you when investigationing any issue of the press, I would also advise you to bring forth a separete State lawsuit against the university for invasion of privacy pursuant to Article 1Section 1 of the California Constitution for giving the Secret Service your address without proper legal authority. In conclusion, while unfourtunate, it seems that hardcore and very expensive lawsuits that drive law enforcement agents into personal bankrupcy may be the only way to control an obviously out of control Federal Law Enforcement Network (ATF, FBI, and now to be included SECRET SERVICE). -Ronald Payne

Black women have suffered a greater degree of race and gender discrimination and sexual harassment and have least benefited from any so called Affirmative Action programs. Such programs have tended to be a smokescreen for the "face" of equal opportunity, rather than actual facilitation of the employment of and contracting with those who have historically faced the obvious race/color/ethnic difference from the predominant society. Proposition 209 will merely facilitate those who have discriminated, and continue to discriminate, by enabling and empowering those who already control the majority of economic power to take the whole pie. Proposition 209 purports to eliminate preferences. Hah! Nepotism, Favoritism, and Cronyism have not been outlawed in the workplace. Significantly, it has not bee outlawed in the tax-supported workplace. This includes government offices, and business which thrive with government contracts. Hypocrisy, Hypocrisy, Thou Art King.-Lita Pezant, San Bernardino, CA

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Graduate Research help. I am a German graduate student of Berlin's Freie Universität and work on my master’s thesis about Ronald Reagan's visit in Bitburg , Germany, in 1985. I would like to know if the Reagan Library contains any files or datas which are related to that event. I am looking for non-edited White House documents , notices of the presidents, drafts or any other papaers that could help me creating an objective picture of the things that happend during November 1984 and May 1985. I do have access to the published Memoirs of Ronald Reagan, Nancy Reagan, George Shultz, Donald Regan and Michael Deaver. -Best wishes from Berlin Germany. -Jan Kallmorgen

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re City Hall story. Congratulations for your fine paper! You consistently grasp issues the rest of the media misses. Your analysis of the stadium issues is outstanding. Thank you!-Repoman

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re City Hall story. I have been reading your publication for only a couple of weeks. I is the only way I can get a clear picture of what is going on in Fresno and the world. Keep up the good work. God bless you. -name witheld

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re DR Newspaper Editorial Policy. I know of other people who would be interested in your view of the news compared with the Fresno Bee. Is it possible to have the Fresno Daily Republican sento to them? -W.Hughes

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re City Hall story. You have done a fine job of disseminating lies and half-truths. Your Oct. 29 "edition" contains some out and out lies regarding baseball and the exhibit hall. The exhibit hall was stopped because the developer could not find private financing, work conditions had nothing to do with it. By the way, Mayor Patterson helped vote that developer into the job. Fresno cannot have Triple-AAA baseball without the Diamond Group who owns the baseball rights to Fresno. They do own the team and the contract with the SF Giants. The word subsidy is a bunch of bull, the City will own the stadium.Mortgage payments for something you end up owning is no subsidy. Besides the City would get most of that back thru fees, taxes etc.The Diamond Group has made some mistakes, no doubt about it, but their final offer to pay $1.9 million a yearis almost double what any other Triple-AAA team pays per year. What makes Fresno think it should own the stadium and have the Diamond Group pay for the whole thing? What a sweet deal...and it won't happen. Finally, the Daily Republican has shown a true lack of ethics and journalism. Did Mayor Patterson write this dribble for you? Please take us of any list you may have and never grace our fax machine again.-Randy Muzny (fax #209-255-7385)

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Robert Bork editorial. Looking at the paper for the first time--very nice!--I coudln't find the Robert Bork editorial. Do you have an archive? Good work! -Guy Story Brown, Dallas

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re BLM mustangs story. I have adopted 2 mustangs from the Blm. One from Missouri (Milwakee BLM) November 1995, one from Kansas (Oklahoma BLM) October 1996. Both times I had my shelter and pen inspected by a local Veternarian. Before 90 days after we adopted each of the horses, a BLM official came to my farm to inspect. I received the title for the horses a year after I adopted each. I have since bought a third Mustang from an owner that furnished me with the title. These three horses are the finest horses I have ever had. They were not hard to gentle or train. All it takes is patients and gentle care. Milwakee BLM even furnished me with a map to show the location where my mustang was caught, information on what the horses eat in that area and the probalility of how the horse got there( stock it probably came from) ie.lost army horses from long ago. ink the BLM that services the Kansas area are doing a good job. Maybe with all the computers around today the BLM can keep better records. I don't tend to argue this, I just wanted to say a good word for the BLM, they have been very helpful to me. Your article is very informative. -Rick Mellott

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Durnil's new book. Gordon Durnil's book opens a Pandora's box in postulating that America may be beyond reform. It is my belief that as ordinary citizens we are at this point in time left with but two choices: We can prepare ourselves to exist and survive in an absolute socialist system. Or, we can assume all the risk inherent in the calling of a Constitutional Convention and proceed to rewrite the document in language not susceptible to distortions by a runaway judiciary.-R.W. Roland

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re Clinton-Gore Campaign hearings. Now it is absolutely clear that Clinton conceived, organized, and led a criminal conspiracy to violate campaign laws and other federal statues. The GOP should be forthright in so stating. The RNC's refusal in 1995-6 to answer the Clinton/DNC/AFL-CIO ad campaign was a terrible policy blunder. The GOP should begin a nationwide AD blitz now to acquaint the American people with the extent and depth of Clinton and Company's political corruption and his stealing of the 1996 Election. For God sake don't repeat the 1995-6 blunder again and lose the Congress, too, next year! -Robert E. Butler

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re 'Clinton Go Home!' Protest in Bazil. Now, why didn't I see that on the TV evening news? Thank you. - R.P. [Bob] Wheeler

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re review of Gordon Durnil's book "Is America Beyond Reform?" Next month I will be 78 years of age. First generation born in this country. High School graduate during the depression. World War II service and retired from the U.S. Navy after 22 years service. I have never been so depressed about the direction of this country. -JOHN LEONE

Viewer E-mailEditor: Re White House Tapes. Your article is appreciated. Has anyone checked to see if a large number of video machines are being delivered to the White House to "review (edit)" those tapes before release. Particularly telling is that the follow-up to the first release of videos coincided with the release of a weak "Reagan did it too" excuse. Again, thanks for your article. -R Schoel
