Regarding your story about PETA urging a Cockeysville retirement home to allow its pet finches to leave their cage, animals are not on the earth to serve people ("Let birds spread wings, PETA urges retirement home in Cockeysville," June 27). However, there is nothing wrong with having people-animal interactions, provided the animals are provided with a suitable environment. If you adopt a child, you are responsible for providing a suitable environment. The same reasoning applies to "adopted" animals who live with people.

"Big" Max Taylor Jr. barely survived the Legionnaire's disease he contracted last year while living at a Baltimore retirement community for low-income seniors, but he's not sure his current existence quite qualifies as living. His speech is slurred, his balance is off, and he uses a walker to get from place to place — effects of the stroke he says was brought on by the Legionnaire's. He's had to move from Baltimore, where he was born and raised, to Charlotte, N.C., so his grown son, "Little" Max Taylor III, can tend to his basic needs.

PETA is calling on a Cockeysville retirement community to let its pet finches spread their wings and leave the cage. The animal rights organization, which alleges the birds are being kept in inhumane conditions, is urging its members to contact the management at Broadmead. The retirement home says the animals are well cared for and are a highlight for residents. PETA first raised concerns about the birds a decade ago, said Dan Paden, a senior researcher at the organization. A Broadmead resident complained to management this spring, Paden said, and the group got involved again.

This letter was sent to President Bush by 75 residents of Broadmead, a retirement home in Cockeysville. Another letter, calling for a cease-fire in the Middle East, was signed by 54 residents.AS RESIDENTS of a retirement home, we are old enough to have seen many wars. Our experience leads us to believe that the expected benefits of war seldom, if ever, justify the human suffering, the increased animosity and the physical devastation that inevitably result. We therefore believe that it is generally to the advantage of all parties to find peaceful solutions to conflict.
