Bravo for SPORTS ILLUSTRATED in recognizing A Man of Quality (May 23). Aly Khan excelled as few do in important and pleasurable endeavors widely accepted by our culture.
The world has lost one of its foremost proponents of the art of living.

What is a man of quality? In my opinion a man of quality is one who serves his fellow man and follows a set of moral rights. Being a gambler and sportsman does not make a man of quality.
When are women at their best? When dressed in the highest fashion, glittering in the Paris social whirl and living as the mistresses of Aly Khan?
Come down off it and write with honesty and fewer stars in your eyes.

A disgrace to the journalistic profession.

Some day we rebels will take up arms and overthrow the cruel and ruthless dictatorship of the NCAA (EDITORIALS, May 16). Our cause is just! Live for the future when once again sports will be ruled as a democracy of the people, by the people and for the people.

I read with great interest your editorial The Safetimonious Driver (May 30).
It is my firm belief that if the senseless slogan "Speed Kills" were changed to "Skill Saves" and a wholehearted effort were made to educate motorists on proper driving techniques, many many lives could be saved.
I, too, would rather be somewhere else, but as an automobile commuter driving over 100 miles per day, I have very little choice but to live dangerously.
