Feud for ThoughtMy great-grandfather was Ellison Hatfield, copatriarch of the mighty and peace-loving Hatfield clan, so steeped in West Virginia feud lore as I am, I can rate the top American feuds (Blue Blood, March 8). Of course, the Hatfield-McCoy fracas is No. 1, but North Carolina-Duke is second. The Good Hatfields ultimately vanquished the Evil McCoys just as the Good Heels will eventually pound the Evil Devils into cinders. (The Yankees-Red Sox should be No. 3, but since the Sox never really win anything, I gotta go with Britney and Christina.)JOHN A. JENKS, Wilmington, N.C.

Stolen Memories
Rick Reilly's column on the heartless "Dr. James Hart" was a masterly, yet disturbing, account of a pathetic man taking advantage of tragic circumstances (THE LIFE OF REILLY, March 8). Sadly, the Eagles' great Pete Pihos has been victimized twice: Alzheimer's stripped him of his memories, and a scam artist ran off with the remnants of an outstanding career.

Thanks, Rick, for your heartbreaking piece on the con artist "Dr. James Hart." Now I know how Jason—or Jayson—Williams (pick one) feels.
