The writer of a letter to the editor in yesterday's editions was incorrectly identified. The writer was Emerson C. Walden Sr.The Sun regrets the error.Shame on PageI note that Clarence Page, usually an excellent journalist, provides several examples of sloppy journalism in his column "Agenda Shock" (March 1).In "Agenda Shock," he calls the local affiliates of the NAACP "chapters." Attention to detail would have told him that they are called "branches."More disturbing is his inadequate research into the ways enlightened investigators are looking at the use of the word "race."

County budget ;acls funds for needed services Baltimore County Council member Vincent J. Gardina calls the county's new spending plan "the best budget that's been put together in my 14 years here" ("County's $1.3 billion budget keeps tax rates steady," May 28). But while county leaders deserve some praise for not increasing taxes, this is hardly the best budget imaginable for Mr. Gardina's constituents. Northeast Baltimore County's elderly population continues to climb. Yet the budget contains no plans to build a second senior center in the Perry Hall area.

Legislators failed to do right thing on drunken drivingThe Maryland House Judiciary Committee should be ashamed of itself for its irresponsibility in failing to pass tougher drunken-driving laws ("What does `drunken' mean?" March 23).The committee had a golden opportunity to show some resolve, to show that its members are truly in touch with the desires of their constituents by raising the standard by which drivers are deemed intoxicated.Unfortunately, our lawmakers seem to prefer giving the drinking driver more leeway as well as the benefit of the doubt.

The BombIn the article (July 5) about Ilse R. Keuls' imprisonment by the Japanese in Java, she says, "Thank God for the atomic bomb. I'm grateful for it because otherwise we might never have been freed."We are coming up on the 49th anniversary of the dropping of the bomb, and with it we will get the usual condemnations of its use by the revisioners and latter-day experts -- not to mention the politically correct.When the war ended in the Pacific Theatre, a great number of the prisoners of the Japanese were brought to Okinawa for treatment and fattening up so they could be shipped home in a reasonable condition.

White Males Have Reason To Feel AngryClarence Page's supposedly denigrating list of white males' ". . values and . . .icons . . ." in his column (Opinion * Commentary, Jan. 10) entitled "Why White Male Voters Went The Other Way" is a perfect illustration of why the 1994 elections were a disaster for liberals and Democrats.In case he still doesn't get it, white males are tired of being dumped on, fleeced, blamed, ridiculed and scorned "just," as the song goes, "for being what we are."So what if we read Tom Clancy.

About 90 percent of the nearly 200,000 customers who lost power in the storm had service restored within 48 hours, he said.

HAVANA - To most people in Cuba or outside of it, race is a big non-issue on the island. However, if race isn't much of an issue here anymore, color still is. Tanya Quintero, a light-skinned mulatta and prominent independent journalist in Havana, said she was not aware of racial discrimination until she had a daughter with darker skin than she. Suddenly, some of her friends referred to her child with a Spanish phrase that literally translates as "sour...

WASHINGTON -- Justice Sarbanes? Senator Schmoke?In the end, it never happened. But last week, for a moment at least, President Clinton pondered aloud the idea of putting Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes on the Supreme Court and seeing Maryland's seat in the Senate go to Mr. Clinton's old chum, Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke of Baltimore.White House officials confirmed yesterday that roughly an hour and a half before phoning Judge Stephen G. Breyer to inform him that he was being nominated for the high court, Mr. Clinton blurted out Mr. Sarbanes' name as a possible alternative choice for the nomination.

Opponents of a proposal to move a small post office from Columbia's Town Center lakefront two-tenths of a mile across the street to The Mall in Columbia braved a blustery rain last night to state their case at a meeting. Several people who rent boxes at the tiny branch in the American Cities building, where it has been since 1968, complained that the mall location will cost them time and a longer walk to get their daily mail. Clarence Page, an opponent, complained that too few people were notified about last night's meeting in the main Columbia post office on Oak Hall Lane in east Columbia.
