I didn't even have to open the March 21 issue to get my money's worth. The NCAA collage on the cover was wonderfully done. Thanks for making Duke's J.J. Redick go stand in the corner where he belongs.

I'm an Orange fan. The morning after Syracuse's loss to Vermont, I found myself just staring blankly at the March Madness cover. I noticed Kareem among the faces. Then I saw Wilt, and for the next few minutes I just had a blast finding the other great players from the past.

As a 14-year-old female basketball player and fan, I'm disappointed by your very limited coverage of the NCAA women's basketball tournament. You didn't even include the women's bracket.

To Bean or Not to Bean (March 21) raises many issues regarding the decision to throw at a batter. The punishment, however, doesn't fit the crime. Immediately putting a hit batsman in scoring position might give a pitcher second thoughts about throwing at a hitter, thus reducing the need for an opposing manager to determine whether to retaliate.
