Do You Believe in Magic? Magic Johnson remains my favorite NBA player (Life After Death, Aug. 20). His love of life is evident in all he does. Most of us Kentuckians appreciate good basketball, but my appreciation of Magic goes beyond that to include the uplifting and determined way he has dealt with his life since Nov. 7, 1991. Good luck, Magic, and God bless you, Cookie and your children.Vickie Ragan Duff, Versailles, Ky.

As the brigade commander during the Ripcord siege, I was at the firebase when Bob Kalsu and David Johnson were killed. Kalsu and Johnson served their country with honor, dignity and dedication in an unpopular war. I hope your readers will be interested to learn the many stories of selfless service, sacrifice and suffering of the more than 350 individuals detailed in Ripcord: Screaming Eagles under Siege, Vietnam 1970 by Keith Nolan.

Under a Magic Spell
Magic Johnson is to be commended for his desire to succeed outside of basketball. He should be emulated more often by today's pro athletes.
