John Wooden's Legacy

October 17, 2004

Re "Wooden's a Coach for Life," Oct. 14: How refreshing to read Robyn Norwood's story on the legendary former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden and be reminded of his powerful and successful philosophy. It is obvious that no one in the Laker organization ever attended one of his workshops to learn three important lessons: "Don't Whine, Don't Complain, Don't Make Excuses."

Wooden's teachings on personal responsibility and values are an important reminder to us as we consider the manipulation of national environmental policies or inflated drug prices in the interest of corporate profit.
