'Cave-in on the Contras '

Thank you for the excellent editorial (June 13), "Cave-in on the Contras. " It indicates someone is thinking honestly and wisely in these disturbing days. I am shocked that Congress finds the contras approach acceptable.

When will the members of Congress open their eyes, and most important their minds, to see that our support of the contras perpetuates the Nicaraguan tragedy? If we would spend half as much money and attention on the Contadora process instead of military operations and attempts to overthrow the Sandinista government, we'd see twice the progress toward a genuine resolution of the unique Nicaraguan (not Communist) problems.

Why we pay for death is beyond me.
