You should know that tennis star Kim Clijsters is Belgian, not Dutch (SCORECARD, Nov. 13). I realize many people outside of Europe still think that Belgium is part of the Netherlands or, worse yet, Germany. The world's No. 1, Justine Henin-Hardenne, is also Belgian. Not bad for a country with about the same population as greater L.A. Just because Clijsters speaks Dutch doesn't mean she is Dutch. Sixty percent of Belgians speak Dutch, just as most Americans speak English.
Jim Kelly, Schriek, Belgium

Fantasy Politics

I take exception to labeling a fantasy Congress game as a "Sign of the Apocalypse" (SCORECARD, Nov. 13). As a high school history teacher, I have started a school league on this website. The students are extremely excited about it, and it encourages them to pay more attention to the issues being debated by our elected officials in Congress, thereby encouraging them to be attentive voters in the future.
Ryan Wandyes, Danielson, Conn.

Jersey Boys
Andre' Davis may think that he and Andra Davis are "probably the first guys to have their full names on their jerseys" (PLAYERS, Nov. 13), but Jim and Jack Youngblood wore their first and last names with the Los Angeles Rams in the 1970s and '80s.
Steven Vanderpool, Los Angeles
