So Tom Brady wants to play another 10 years, and maybe even beyond his 41st birthday? Makes sense to me. After all, that would make him only the second-oldest active QB in the NFL—behind Brett Favre.

With the resolve Tom Brady is showing (There's Nothing I Can't Do, June 1), a 19--0 season for the Patriots is a distinct possibility.

I have a follow-up question for Danica Patrick after reading what she told Dan Patrick (JUST MY TYPE, June 1) about whether she would take performance-enhancing drugs if she knew she wouldn't get caught. ("Well, then it's not cheating, is it? If nobody finds out?") If your agent or business manager took double his or her usual percentage and you didn't find out, then it wouldn't be stealing, would it?

Someone should remind Danica Patrick that the definition of integrity is what one does when no one is looking.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Danica Patrick has said that she was making a joke in the course of a playful interview.
The Right Choices
At last Michael Farber comes along to dispel the myth that the Red Wings are the Yankees of the NHL, buying whichever players they want (Spirit of '89, June 1). In the age of the all-equalizing salary cap, this organization's continued draft success is the ultimate reason for its greatness.

Any NBA general manager thinking of drafting European star Ricky Rubio (Spanish Flier, June 1) with the second pick of the draft, repeat after me: Darko Milicic, Darko Milicic, Darko Milicic....
