Your Giants scouting report, which praised the team's running game, should have given some credit to the best blocking back in the league, Madison Hedgecock. He opens holes the size of the Holland Tunnel.

Phil Taylor consulted a psychic to see who will win the Super Bowl (Point After, Sept. 7), and she told him that she is "seeing New York" but says the name is shorter than the Giants. Taylor concludes that she is referring to the Jets—but the Jets play in New Jersey. If we're going by what she says, it looks like the Bills will finally win a Super Bowl!

You name as a SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE the recent appointment of former NHL coach Jacques Demers—who admitted in 2005 that he was functionally illiterate—to Canada's Senate (SCORECARD, Sept. 7). Demers's courage to come forward about his illiteracy, and the work ethic that enabled him to lead teams like the Canadiens, one of the most storied franchises in professional sports, are worthy of praise. He should be seen as a model for others.

The fact that Sweet Jasmine, the pit bull who was rescued from Michael Vick and featured on your Dec. 22, 2008, cover, was struck by a car and killed (SCORECARD, Sept. 7) while Vick is again earning millions in the NFL is further proof that there is no justice in the world.
