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

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.

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.

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.
