Uphold one contract, but not the other? In response to ThePosfs editorial "Good ruling, good deal": It is ironic that you applaud Judge Kenneth Marra's decision on the West Palm Beach Auditorium, saying that this city "will not become known as one that breaks promises and can't be trusted." Only a few days before, you applauded Judge Harold Cohen's decision to allow to renege on its contract with attorneys who sued the tobacco companies. Does it concern you that Florida may become known as a state that breaks contracts and can't be trusted?

Sixty years ago, at Munich, the West tried to appease a dangerous The fate of these captive-bred animals is not pleasant. They wind up in unaccredited roadside zoos, abusive circuses and "canned hunts," where, for a price, they are shot. Lions are a favorite; there is a glut of them. Please don't abet Lion Country Safari and similar commercial ventures that peddle entertainment as education. Jill Schechter Boca Raton The recent Accent article "30 years of Lion Country Safari" couldn't heap enough praise on Lion Country Safari. You might think such places are in the business of saving animals. They are not. They are in the entertainment business. Baby animals are the top attraction at display facilities, so naturally the inhabitants are bred to produce as many babies as possible. Babies grow up and are called "zoo surplus." dictator. We all know the results. Russia's intervention gave the Iraqis more than two weeks to hide their chemical and biological weapons. One day those weapons will be used against Americans, and against Israelis. When that day comes, the world will regret Mr. Clinton's failure to smash Saddam Hussein. Larry Wenig Wellington if '""X wi Lee County's recent decision to allow Bible study courses in public schools has nothing to do with God or religion. It's about power and greed. It's about the Christian Coalition, led by Pat Robertson, and its wealthy corporate holdings. Having lost his bid to become president, the Rev. Robertson has instead found another way to satisfy his political ambitions. Write us Rev. Robertson that I'm sure doesn't go to the United Way. With all the crime and drug problems in the ar- ea, I would feel much better if the sheriff and his J deputies caught a few bad guys.

" M. Miller' West Palm Beach ' When a student gets sent home for wearing beads, a Budweiser shirt or other offensive clothing, instead of calling or coming to the school to complain, the parents should ask their children whether they did their math homework. Public schools will never rival private schools unless parents work with teachers and administrators. Parents who stay involved in their children's education will work wonders. Charles Metcatf Palm Beach County Spend more time catching bad guys Traffic enforcement, in Palm Beach County, has nothing to do with safety and everything to do with generating revenue. The only rigorous enforcement I see are speed traps on the Beeline Highway. They ticket law-abiding, hard-working people who are going to or coming from work. On Nov. 18, the sheriff was working a speed trap about a quarter-mile east of Pratt & Whitney. They caught about 200 people who were probably fined $150 each. That would be $30,000 in fines The Palm Beach Post welcomes letters from readers. All letters are subject to editing for brevity and clarity.
