The St. Paul Saints, who open their independent league baseball schedule May 16, are back at it with their zany promotions. Last year, they gave away seat cushions with the likeness of Bud Selig, Major League Baseball's commissioner, on one side and Don Fehr, the players' union chief, on the other.

Mike Hiserman's excellent March 21 story on the idiotic firing of longtime Cal State Northridge basketball Coach Pete Cassidy contained an especially interesting sentence, "Interesting logic." When discussing CSUN, and especially what is laughingly called its athletic department, "logic" is an oxymoron. This is truly the gang that can't shoot straight. Remember, this is a department that didn't fund its Division II programs to what other schools did. Cassidy had two and three full scholarships to spread over 12 players in those days, compared to 10 at some schools.
