Pete Dalldorf, Greensboro, N.C.
Your item One Weird Trip (SCORECARD, Nov. 23), about a short film on the Internet, perpetuates the urban legend that Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter on LSD. Anyone who has used the drug knows that such a feat is beyond impossible. Perhaps he pitched the day after taking LSD, but not the day of. Glorifying this terribly dangerous recreational drug is a disservice to young readers.

Boise Makes Noise
Once again Boise State complains about being overlooked (Boise States Its Case, Nov. 23) but it has no one to blame but itself. After facing Oregon (at home), it chose to play two MAC weaklings and UC-Davis, which is new to Division I. Boise State wants respect? Schedule more impressive nonconference opponents, Broncos, and then we can talk.
The Big Ten has needed a 12th team for more than a decade, and since the obvious candidate (Notre Dame) is too chicken, maybe Boise State should apply for membership. Then the Broncos could get more respect and the Big Ten could have a conference championship game.
