Jeff MacGregor is a very talented writer. It's just that I'm profoundly embarrassed by the Rattlesnake Derby, a macabre event that brings dishonor to us Oklahomans. Mr. MacGregor, please come back. Next spring you might want to visit the Beaver ( Okla.) Cow Chip Throwing Festival. And bring Joel Sartore along to take more terrific pictures.

Thank you for mentioning Rex Hudler's retirement (SCORECARD, July 27). It wasn't always easy to keep up with him, since he wasn't chasing Maris. I'm glad to see that the attitude he brought to the ballpark did not go unnoticed. I'm going to miss his enthusiasm and dirty uniform.
