Of Humane BondageKudos to Rick Reilly for telling the rest of the country what we in the Bay Area already know (THE LIFE OF REILLY, Aug. 27). I got fed up with Barry Bonds's arrogant act a long time ago. For the amount of money he is paid you would think he could pose for a measly team picture, ride the team bus, stretch with the rest of the Giants and, most of all, run out all the ground balls he hits. Maybe then he would get a high five from someone other than himself when he hits a milestone home run. It would be nice if Willie Mays (Barry's godfather) would pull him aside and tell him to "get it, ASAP."Larry Becker, Danville, Calif.
Age of Consent
In the rush to blame Danny Almonte's father and other adults, let's not forget that Danny (above) knew darn well he was cheating the kids on the other teams and risking the accomplishments his teammates worked so hard for. He deserves to be punished right along with the adults.
