In business to exploit, not save, animals Editor's note: Larry Wenig is vice chairman of the national executive committee of the Zionist Organization of America. Uphold one contract, but not the other? In response to The Posts 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? Richard Rampell Palm Beach Bible study courses about power, greed ing for me to watch Moscow receive credit for "peacemaking" when what they did was preserve a customer to purchase Russian weapons. 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 w AV - f 1 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. 1 With all the crime and drug problems in the ar- - ea, I would feel much better if the sheriff and his deputies caught a few bad guys. Catching good guys is not very hard, and it's not my idea of what the sheriffs department ' ; should be doing. I, for one, am tired of being ter- 1 rorized by these pseudo-guardians of the public safety. Raymond P. Schneider Lake Park ' A child is dead and yet they celebrate I gave the English credit for sensitivity, but to J see champaign corks popped after the release of i Louise Woodward I have changed my opinion. After reading about their plans for a party with fireworks, it seems to me they've overlooked the ; basic fact that a child is dead, and Ms. Woodward j is directly involved. Whether intentional or accidental, a child is dead, and no one cares. t 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 Metcarf 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.

Kanner Highway Stuart, FL 34994 Fax: (561) 287-0241 Internet: letterspbpost.com With an endowment of billions of dollars, and their willing Republican accomplices we blindly keep voting in, the Rev. Robertson and his cohorts will succeed in their crusade to separate all religions from the state, except for their own, of course. Perri Natalizio Stuart Parents must solve students' problems The solution to problems in public schools is positive parental involvement. As a substitute teacher for the past four years, I have observed parents' attitudes and students' behavior.
