Deja Vu I couldn't help but feel a twinge of deja vu when Leon Jaworski announced the formation of "Democrats for Reagan." I seem to remember another Texas politician who claimed to be a "Democrat for Nixon" before the 1972 election only to discover later that he wasn't really a Democrat after all . . . after the election, of course. Mr. Jaworski seems to need a lesson in rudimentary loyalty and the decorum such a concept entails. If he wishes to call himself a Democrat, he should support the candidates and programs of the Democratic party. If Mr. Jaworski cannot support the programs and candidates of the Democratic party, he should not use the party's name. What kind of man would disguise himself as a party member in order to defeat the programs and candidates of the very same party. The word "turncoat" does not seem too strong for a man who has behaved as Mr. Jaworski. In my eyes he has compromised both his credibility and his honor in this deception. Now that we have seen the methods that Mr. Jaworski will employ to achieve a political end, we are left to wonder whether he was a "Democrat for Nixon" while serving as special Watergate prosecutor. GEORGE W.PULLIAM III Election Elegy With the presidential elections and nuclear war on the horizon, I have some questions I'd like to ask my neighbors. How has it come to be that we have taken something as awesomely beautiful as nature and allowed it to become feared and polluted? How have we allowed something as meaningless as money to dominate our lives, the motives for living? How has fear for our safety become something we accept and openess/integrity become subject to suspicion and extensive scrutiny? How come satisfaction is so hard to come by when everyone is so eager? How has it come to be that government speaks of tax breaks while taxes break our spirits? How has it come to be that so many of the laws of a free society at best pander and at worse deny our need to live with a sense of dignity and capacity? How come war looms so large and savage when we want peace for ourselves and our families? How come nothing is funny anymore? I mention these things because I'm frightened. Because there seems to be so little hope. . . I do plan to vote. It seems a tiny action, an insignificant drop in the bucket, but . . . ANASTASIA SAMS Rally Round It's election time — time for all of us who believe in equal rights to be especially visible and vocal. Bring your family and join us at the ERA Rally, Sunday, Nov- vember 2, at 2 pm at the City Hall Reflection Pool. JEANNE SALETAW Cum Laude I enjoyed Charlotte Moser's article on TMO in the September issue. Her explanation of TMO's history, agenda, and method of operation clears away the enigma surrounding this laudable organization of Houston churches. E.PHILLIP DAHLBERG Chairperson, Service Committee Christ the King Lutheran Church Local Choler Please: either muzzle Morris Edelson or persuade him that he is not H. L. Mencken, or do away with his rambling, interminable column altogether. Parts of "Local Color" have been interesting and on target, but the item about DeBakey as "the sometime surgeon in residence" (October 1980) is indefensible, incorrect, unsupported and irresponsible. That kind of writing makes a rag of the paper. Editors of nonestablishment publications, who often have to work and struggle too hard, sometimes feel that their publications are theirs alone, and they seem to permit themselves impermissible excesses. As a matter of fact, the rules of journalistic accuracy apply here even more, because their readers pay a lot closer attention, and so their professional responsibility is greater. Please shut up Edelson or edit him. LORE FELDMAN the same line and tried to match wits with words. But I like my humor subtle and I get that between the lines of Gabrielle Cosgriff's column, "Media Matters." But Morris Edelson's column, "Local Color" really seems out of character in Breakthrough. It seems to me to be everything you have stood against: Taking cheap shots. Hit and miss journalism. Sometimes (i. e. Dr. DeBakey) tasteless. That kind of writing belongs in the underground press. Please, Breakthrough, don't sink that low. CAROL HORVATH Clovis, N.M. P. S. For the record. I've liked the other stories Edelson has tackled, particularly his interviews with Sharon Itaya, the union doctor (April 1980) and Richard Murray, the political analyst (July/ August). Also, his story last month on the small theater groups in Houston. So, it's not his writing, it's the carelessness in his column. The Republican Party's anti-ERA platform brought Houston's ERA supporters out to protest. Identity Crisis I've read Breakthrough for five years now and never once wrote how much I liked it. Now, as I leave for New Mexico, I want to leave some parting thoughts. I've watched you change, grow, from a strictly feminist to a more all-embracing format. And I felt that was the right thing to do (although I'll frankly admit I liked having a newspaper "where women are news" — my husband has Esquire, right?) But I did like the changes and the range and quality of reporting was constant. You were a class act. But the past couple of months, I feel like you've been going through an identity crisis. It's as though someone told you (as they've always told feminists,) "You're too serious. Where's your sense of humor? . And it seems the paper heard Kudos I enjoyed your paper. You could teach a lot to the local "alternatives" here about design and photography! BILL GRIFFITH San Francisco Our Mistake In "Local Color" (September 1980) a photo caption of a building being demolished downtown next to Stelzig's Western Shop was identified as the Hogg Building. It was, in fact, the Baker Building. The Hogg Building still stands across the street. We thank our readers who called our attention to this. Eds. HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH
