Your interview with President George W. Bush (Sports in America, Sept. 29) was to the point and amusing. However, I don't agree with your claim that Bush "may be the most physically fit President ever." Although the White House has certainly known its share of slugs over the years, the title of fittest president must go to our 26th, Theodore Roosevelt. After a full day of administrative responsibilities in the West Wing, he would hike the rugged terrain of Rock Creek Park, do chin-ups from a bridge over the Potomac—or go swimming in it—play a full set of tennis or practice jujitsu and wrestling in the White House residence.
