A Connecticut lawmaker wants TV talk show host Phil Donahue to consider donating land adjacent to his waterfront home as the site for a residence for AIDS victims.

Sen. Fred H. Lovegrove Jr., R-Fairfield, said the land along Long Island Sound offered a "peaceful location" that "would be ideal for patients suffering through the final stages of this fatal disease. You have often spoken of your concern for AIDS victims on your television show. I am writing to ask you to help them out a little closer to home," Lovegrove wrote Donahue in a letter released Monday.Lovegrove, whose letter was sent to Donahue's home in Fairfield and dated last Thursday, said Monday he had not yet received a response.
