Tim Layden emphasizes doping suspicions in his story about Usain Bolt. But Bolt's physical gifts and steady progression from 15-year-old world junior champion to 23-year-old world-record holder suggests that he may be a once-in-a-lifetime, Tiger Woods--type phenomenon.

Drug screening tests are still flawed. The odds that Usain Bolt (Bolt Strikes Twice, Aug. 31) is clean are 100-to-1 against.

Perhaps Bolt should be ordered to take a "species" test to prove he is really human.

Thank you for the 100% FAVRE FREE ISSUE of Aug. 31. A lifelong Vikings fan, I am tired of hearing about Brett Favre and am extremely disappointed that he will be playing for Minnesota. Oh, well, I guess I can still cheer for Adrian Peterson!
