LETTERS TO THE TIMES

Handicapping Method of the L.A. Marathon

March 09, 2004

I am writing about the "winner" of the L.A. Marathon (March 8). It's always nice to see the spread of political correctness, especially in the sports world. The "first-place finisher," a woman, was spotted only 20 minutes and 30 seconds and managed to squeak a three-minute-plus "win" over the first-place male runner.

Perhaps next year, the leading men marathoners will be required to run with small rocks in their shoes (just one foot) or have to walk a mile for every five or so they run -- anything to slow them down and make the race "fair." What a sweet and "fair" victory.
