Nike I would like to thank Donald Katz for the article about Nike (Triumph of the Swoosh, Aug. 16). It was one of the best written and most complete stories I have read in a long time. Unlike many, this article always answered any questions that came to mind as I read it.JASON FASTSurrey, B.C.

I have worked for plaintiffs' attorneys for more than 11 years and have much respect for their expertise and ability in helping people who have been injured and wronged. However, the only one wronged in the Bryan Fortay case is the American public, which is now subjected to yet another frivolous lawsuit. Fortay and his father did not file their suit by themselves; it also took lawyers grappling for fees and publicity to file this unnecessary action and to give the public another excuse for lawyer bashing.

The Monster in College Sports
As a longtime Husky fan, I was disappointed by the retirement of Washington coach Don James and the circumstances surrounding it (SCORECARD, Aug. 30). Your article had one point that hit hard: the statement that " James ultimately was guilty of losing control of the monster he helped create." James and his staff did their jobs well. The monster is that all of us put too much emphasis on college sports. James did not create this monster; it exists in every big-time program across the U.S. If his retirement put a stop to this monster, that would be one thing, hut it won't. It will go on until our society deemphasizes college sports.
