Jerry Johnson worked up some righteous indignation when the Pac-12 Conference's postseason awards were announced. Not for himself. He's had a nice season, with 25 receptions for 307 yards, but he knew it didn't rate all-conference consideration. What miffed Johnson was that UCLA's Jim Mora wasn't coach of the year. Stanford's David Shaw received that award for guiding the Cardinal to a 10-2 season, which included victories over then-top-ranked Oregon in Eugene and UCLA at the Rose Bowl.

State parole officials missed many chances to capture convicted sex offender Phillip Garrido and find Jaycee Dugard, whom he is accused of kidnapping 18 years ago and harboring in his Antioch backyard, a prison watchdog has concluded in a highly critical report to be released today. Inspector General David R. Shaw said a two-month investigation found that the state parole division supervising Garrido for the past decade could have discovered Dugard, and her two children fathered by him, much earlier than August, when he was arrested.

I learned with great sadness about David Shaw's passing ["He Savored Life With Grace and Gusto," Aug. 3]. I enjoyed his wit, outspokenness and depth of knowledge. So many of his articles made me think, laugh His columns were the kind that I occasionally forwarded to friends and family for further discussion. I wish I had known him personally so that I could have made him a simple meal and enjoyed one of his fabulous bottles of wine! I will miss his columns and insight, and I send my deepest sympathy to his family and colleagues.

This paper and its readers lost an important voice with the death last week of David Shaw, 62. David was an indefatigable reporter for The Times for 36 years; starting in 1974 he was a pioneer in what then seemed like an odd backwater of journalism, reporting on the practices and shortcomings of the media. For the past three years, in addition to writing about food and wine, he wrote the Media Matters column for this section.
