Reader Carl Barrington asked "Where's Barry?" about the cover of your baseball preview (Letters, April 16). Bonds was exactly where he should be. We celebrate enough crooked people in our culture. When his record-setting home run ball hits McCovey Cove, let's hope that the world issues a collective "ho-hum."

The intensity of the Grambling athlete at the left center of your photo (PLAYERS, April 16) as he tried to grasp every ounce of knowledge and leadership he could from Eddie Robinson tells me all I need to know about what a remarkable coach and man Robinson must have been. His family should be proud of the tremendous number of athletes he affected.
