Re "Ultimately a Love Match" (by William Keck, April 16):
So, director Jane Anderson studied footage of the Billie Jean King-Bobby Riggs match to "re-create the most minute details" in "When Billie Beat Bobby"? Well, she must have unearthed the only footage in existence that clearly depicts the USC Marching Band performing on the sidelines.
If women really think that a champion female tennis player in her youth who bested a tired, obese old man at a game of tennis is indicative of how great women are, and indeed was a turning point in the women's movement, then this has a lot to say about women.
If the objective of journalism is to inform, then what purpose is served by the phrase "King lives in Chicago with her companion of many years"? If this is code for lesbian partner, why not say "female companion"? Say it straight or not at all (no pun intended).
