San Ramon, Calif.
You had the wrong SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE (Dec. 21). The news that two British women are planning to row across the Atlantic may be a head-turner, but Alabama's canceling three days of classes so students could attend the BCS national championship game (GO FIGURE) is downright disturbing.

Alexander Wolff's article Is There a Doctor in the Arena, (SCORECARD, Dec. 21) hit close to home. Rough play is preventing our youth from learning the proper way to play basketball. Until that stops, we will continue to lose the purity of this beautiful game.

Dolph Schayes is not the only one checking Sacramento's box scores every morning for Omri Casspi's stats (Welcome, The King of Israel, Dec. 21). My brothers and I, Jewish kids who grew up in Massachusetts and now live in New York City, with absolutely no connection to the Kings, do the same thing. I suspect we are not alone among American Jews or Israeli expats living in the States, for whom Casspi is an inspiration and represents the indomitable Israeli spirit we love and respect. Millions of us are rooting for Omri and eagerly await the next Israeli to join the NBA ranks!
