The first half of the 40th Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach generally was a stately affair. There were no major accidents, though Sebastien Bourdais slammed into the tire barriers twice, and Ryan Hunter-Reay maintained the lead with apparent ease. Then the wheels came off, literally and figuratively. Hunter-Reay sparked a multicar crash that knocked him and five others out, another crash ended Justin Wilson's day and Scott Dixon ran short of fuel while leading with only two laps left in the 80-lap race Sunday.

The best thing in your newspaper that day was Roger Simon's column "The Hunter Seeks His Prey: It Is Himself." He said it all and said it well. In my opinion, it takes the same mentality to be a hunter as to be a murderer. The only difference is the hunter is more cowardly--and more protected by our legal system with its sometimes strange set of priorities and value judgments. So bravo, Roger Simon. Keep telling it as it is. LOUISE LILLARD Los Angeles

The Times' article "Police Seek Man Who Killed Doe With a Crossbow" refers to the sick individual who committed this horrendous crime as a "hunter." This man does not fit the definition of a hunter, a man or woman who enjoys nature and all that it has to offer. Ninety-nine percent of hunters respect and abide by the rules and regulations that govern the sport. The Times is helping feed the anti-hunting fire, ensuring that the decent men and women who enjoy this noble sport are stripped of their privilege to do so. AL SANCHEZ Palmdale

A review of the NBA's players' association found that Executive Director Billy Hunter did nothing illegal with union funds but did enough wrong that players should consider whether he should remain in his position. The report said Hunter's current contract was never properly approved and he failed to disclose that information to the NBPA's executive committee or player representatives. The eight-month review by the firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP was released Thursday.

The National Basketball Players Assn. put chief Billy Hunter on an indefinite leave Friday, two weeks after a report the union commissioned questioned Hunter's leadership and criticized him for bad decisions and questionable business practices. The union is forming an interim executive committee and an advisory committee, the group's president, Derek Fisher , said in a statement released Friday. An outside attorney is also being hired as players begin moving forward, likely without the man who has guided them since 1996.

The first thing anybody is going to tell you about the Hart & the Hunter, the restaurant in the new Fairfax District Palihotel, is that you should get the biscuits, which come four to an order and are served on a board. And you should get the biscuits, which are really pretty extraordinary, as light and delicate as the angel biscuits you sometimes find in the best Southern households, but also flaky at the extremities, and layered - they naturally separate into two or three finger-burning strata, which you are going to need if you want to butter them properly.

The Rim fire, which has burned into Yosemite National Park and threatened a vital water supply to San Francisco, was started by a hunter who let an illegal fire “escape,” the U.S. Forest Service said Thursday. The fire was not started by a marijuana growing operation, despite rumors to the contrary, the U.S. Forest Service's investigation unit and the Tuolumne County district attorney's office concluded. The hunter has been identified and his name is being withheld pending further investigation, officials said.

If the producers of the HBO series "Getting On" go to Costa Mesa to see Samuel D. Hunter's "Rest," the American theater might lose another talented playwright to television. This prolific dramatist's latest play, which is having its world premiere at South Coast Repertory in a finely acted production directed by Martin Benson, put me in mind of the American version of the dark British television comedy in which the old and frail are tended to by caregivers who could use some urgent care themselves.

The raunchy yet sweet bromantic comedy "Date and Switch" could be retitled "American Pie 2.0. " That's because the desperate teen buds here form a pact to lose their virginity, but the switch is that one of the guys is gay. How screenwriter Alan Yang and director Chris Nelson mine this twist for truth, laughs and a bit of parody makes for a largely enjoyable and credible coming-of-age romp, despite some forced broadness and uneven pacing.

The very petite Holly Hunter walked the red carpet at the SAG Awards on Saturday in support of the Jane Campion-directed miniseries, "Top of the Lake. " Hunter is vying against her "Lake" costar, Elisabeth Moss, for the best performance by an actress in a television movie or miniseries. The gritty drama was filmed for Sundance in New Zealand, and when Campion first called Hunter about playing the role of feminist seer G.J., Hunter was at first unsure.

There are so many things wrong about the Dallas Safari Club's ludicrous auction of a permit to hunt a black rhino in order to raise money for conservation of black rhinos. Let's just start with the idea that the club has the temerity to call this effort a “fundraiser,” implying some charitable goal -- when the real goal is to offer a clever way to persuade the Namibians to grant a permit outside their country (which they usually don't do) and get some public relations cover for the safari club.

A Tuolumne County official said this week that federal prosecutors have "privately declared" their intention to charge a hunter who earlier this year sparked the Rim fire, the third-largest in state history. Tuolumne County District Atty. Michael Knowles said federal authorities long ago completed their investigation into the cause, origin and who was responsible for the blaze, which started on Aug. 17 and burned 402 square miles across the Yosemite and Stanislaus National forests.

HOUSTON -- Big-game hunters in Texas stirred controversy over the weekend by auctioning off a rare African permit to hunt the endangered black rhino in the name of conservation. Dallas Safari Club officials have said they faced threats leading up to  Saturday's private auction and had contacted the FBI. Protesters gathered outside the city's convention center, where the auction was held during the club's annual meeting. Opposition to the move was vented online by celebrities including Mia Farrow , William Shatner and former "Price Is Right" host Bob Barker . Barker released an online letter to the club via the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals that likened hunting an aged rhino to taking out a senior citizen.

About 40% fewer bears were killed in California by hunters in 2013, a change the Humane Society of the United States attributed to a new state law barring packs of unsupervised dogs while hunting. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife said 1,002 bears were killed during the 2013 black bear hunting season compared to 1,962 bears over the same period in 2012. That figure was about 40% lower than the annual state average over the last decade, the Humane Society said in statement issued Thursday.
