Maria, Full of GraceThank you for putting Maria Sharapova on your cover (July 12-19). It's interesting that she just happens to be reaching up her skirt to grab a new ball, exposing a little extra leg. We all know this was a coincidence and had nothing to do with her beauty. It's obvious that if a less attractive woman had won Wimbledon, she also would have graced the cover. That's good to know.CASEY DORFF Greenville, S.C.

Lightning Rod
Just because A-Rod's richer than God would be if He hit the Powerball doesn't mean he didn't step on people in the past, namely the entire Rangers fan base (THE LIFE OF REILLY, July 12-19). If A-Rod's the Man of 2004, I suppose that makes Benedict Arnold the Man of 1780.

If you believe that A-Rod is agog over the Impressionists, then you also must believe that a Miss Universe contestant's most heartfelt desire is to end world hunger and bring peace to all mankind.
