Regarding the editorial "The Perot Phenom," June 5: Ross Perot is the first person in my memory to want to take on the job of president who didn't come from a stable of political hacks. The media are all dumping on Ross Perot because he would probably be lousy copy as president. Think of it, no scandals, no coverups, and probably nothing that would provide fodder for the columnists to conjecture on.
I have been collecting signatures to get his name on the ballot and have been overwhelmed with the public response to the possibility of electing an honest man. Don Soule, Carmel Valley, Calif.
