Jansen in his biased article seems to be trying to defend a client without fully grasping the details of the case. He contends that Kashmiris have a distinct identity, culture and tradition. Well, so do 17 other states of India and many of them have a different language, too. Jansen does not seem to know the history of India. India consists of many different cultures, customs, traditions and languages. India, in fact, possesses cultures and customs more diverse than the whole of Europe combined.

When is there too much of a good thing? When it wears down and breaks. There are only so many miles you can put on that '62 Corvette and the arms of relievers. Kenley Jansen currently leads all major league pitchers in appearances with 13. Tied for second with 11 are J.P. Howell and Chris Perez, and tied next with numerous others is Jamey Wright with 10 appearances. All four, you just might have noticed, are Dodgers. This is not a formula for prolonged success, and the Dodgers claim to be keenly aware of that.

G. H. Jansen's vituperative denunciation (Editorial Pages, March 8) of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's recent proposals for direct negotiations between Jordan and Israel, in concert with Egypt and the United States, is reminiscent of some reactions years ago to Anwar Sadat's initiative, which led to Camp David. Indeed, Jansen explicitly cites the Camp David precedent, but as grounds for condemnation of Mubarak. Why should this be? And why the slander of the Egyptians as "stupid" and of Mubarak as "just a lesser Anwar Sadat"?

Giants 3, Dodgers 2 KEY MOMENT: Brandon League is guaranteed a combined $17 million over this season and next, which is probably why he is still with the Dodgers and Paco Rodriguez isn't. Because the Dodgers can't send League to the minor leagues without his consent, they optioned Rodriguez to triple-A Albuquerque Tuesday to create a roster spot for Brian Wilson. The Dodgers were immediately forced to deal with the consequences of that decision. Saving Wilson for a save situation, Manager Don Mattingly called on League to pitch the 12th inning with the game tied, 2-2. League wasn't helped by his defense, but he didn't help himself either.

In reference to an article written by G.H. Jansen (Opinion, July 6), "Trouble Is Inherent for Religious States," I would like to correct some of his misunderstandings and give your readers facts instead of misconceptions. Jansen made no distinction between the Islamic rules and native social and political cultures. For example, he stated that "women are backward creatures--also sources of sin." I have read the QUR'AN several times in the Arabic language, and I have found no statement degrading women.

Holly Lynn Huffman, celebrating New Year's Eve at Disneyland, said she thought someone had thrown an egg until she looked down and saw blood on her leg. The 34-year-old Navy dentist was rushed to UCI Medical Center, where doctors removed a .38-caliber slug from her left thigh, said Sgt. Jack Jansen of the Anaheim Police Department. Lt. Huffman was sitting on her boyfriend's shoulders Tuesday morning about five minutes past midnight when she was hit.

Of all the editorials and articles condemning the proliferation of Middle East terrorism, there is only one, by G.H. Jansen (Opinion, Jan. 5), which also tries to understand the motivation behind the rage; and this is crucial, because the Mideast crises will not be settled with guns but with common sense and understanding. As Jansen recognizes, neither terrorist actions nor retaliatory strikes will accomplish anything but to perpetuate the "cycle of blow and counterblow." It was Albert Einstein, offered the presidency of the Israeli state in 1952, who believed the top political priority of Israel "should be an understanding with the Palestinians."

The political advocacy group ACORN and one of its former supervisors were ordered to stand trial on charges that they illegally paid canvassers to register voters during last year's presidential campaign. Evidence heard during more than six hours of testimony left "a lot of issues that have to be answered" before trial, said Las Vegas Justice of the Peace William D. Jansen. He set arraignment for the Assn. of Community Organizations for Reform Now and former regional supervisor Amy Busefink for Oct. 14 in Clark County District Court.

The Dutch cyclist who's a member of the Saturn Cycling Team won the USPRO Championships in 2001 and placed third in the USPRO Road Championships in 1999. * The Whole City in a Day: I like to bike across the city early in the morning on a Saturday or Sunday. Sometimes I go out to Mt. Wilson, so I cross a big part of the city. I've biked everywhere. I've been through Beverly Hills, Hawthorne, Inglewood and East L.A. I had to see it all. When I go to Mt.

Speedskater Dan Jansen set a world record of 36.41 seconds in the 500-meter event at an international meet Saturday at Davos, Switzerland. Jansen improved by .02 seconds a six-day-old mark set by Olympic champion and World Cup leader Uwe-Jens Mey of Germany on the same natural rink at Davos. Mey, the 1988 Olympic champion in the 500, is not competing in the Davos races--which do not count for the World Cup--because of a hip strain suffered while training Friday.

ON THE MOUND: Dan Haren remained unbeaten with the Dodgers. Haren gave up nine hits and a walk in 5 2/3 innings but limited the damage to three runs. All three were scored in the third inning, which was capped by a solo home run by Eric Chavez. Haren departed from the game with the Dodgers leading, 7-3. "It was a war," Haren said. "It was one of those days. I kind of describe it like I was throwing under water. " Jamey Wright let the Diamondbacks back in the game in the seventh inning, when he gave up a three-run home run to Mark Trumbo that cut the Dodgers' lead to 8-6. Kenley Jansen struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to earn his fourth save.

He did not dazzle. Nor did he cause jaws to drop, heads to shake, or batters to mumble to themselves. Kenley Jansen appeared rather mortal in the Dodgers' last two games against the Detroit Tigers. Like a guy who could be had, particularly if you happen to be Detroit's Victor Martinez. Jansen blew a save Tuesday in a game the Dodgers came back to win in extra innings, and he was the losing pitcher Wednesday. Both times he succumbed to the bat of the 35-year-old Martinez. Jansen gave up a 10th-inning solo home run to Martinez on Wednesday to take the loss.

It was only the 10th game of the season for the Dodgers but mark it down as the early leader for their strangest. And, maybe, the most disappointing. A steal of home, a suicide squeeze by a pitcher, three errors by the Dodgers, a dramatic three-run bottom-of-the-ninth rally to tie it -- all for their closer to immediately give up the game in the 10th inning. More than four hours after it began, the Dodgers suffered a tough 7-6 loss to the Tigers on Wednesday before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 42,687 when Victor Martinez opened the 10th with a solo home run off closer Kenley Jansen.

KEY MOMENT: Yasiel Puig had not played since spraining a thumb on a headfirst dive Saturday. But, as the Dodgers loaded the bases with none out in the ninth inning, there was Puig, headed to the on-deck circle and then the plate, as Dodger Stadium went nuts. Puig struck out looking, but the Dodgers scored three runs off Detroit closer Joe Nathan to force extra innings. AT THE PLATE: Carl Crawford had a pair of doubles, Juan Uribe had three singles, and Dee Gordon had two singles.

Dodgers 5, Padres 4; White Sox 5, Dodgers 4 AT THE PLATE: Dee Gordon was two for three with a triple, raising his exhibition average to .282. Gordon also stole a base, making him nine for his ninth in nine on the spring on stolen-base attempts. Manager Don Mattingly has been highly complimentary of Gordon, an indication he could be the team's opening-day second baseman. ON THE MOUND: Closer Kenley Jansen threw another scoreless inning to maintain his 0.00 earned-run average.

PHOENIX - The Dodgers have three former All-Star closers and none of them is likely to start the season as the team's primary ninth-inning option. That job belongs to Kenley Jansen. As crowded as the Dodgers are in the outfield with Yasiel Puig, Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford and Matt Kemp vying for three starting spots, they might be even more talented in the bullpen. The Dodgers have so many experienced relief pitchers, they might not have a place on the major league roster for Paco Rodriguez, who posted a 2.32 earned-run average in 76 games as a rookie last season.
Jane Danielle Jansen, a lively 7-month-old, doesn't know that her daddy, Dan Jansen, was the first speedskater to race the 500-meter sprint in less than 36 seconds. She doesn't know he fell twice at the 1988 Calgary Olympics after learning that his sister, whose name she carries, had died of leukemia. She doesn't know that at the Albertville Games in 1992, he finished a disappointing fourth in the 500 and 26th in the 1,000. Her love is unconditional, and that has changed Dan Jansen.

American speedskater Dan Jansen set a world record in the 500-meter event at the World Sprint Speedskating Championships at Calgary, Alberta, on Sunday, dipping below the 36-second mark for the fourth time. Jansen, of Greenfield, Wis., was clocked at 35.76 seconds and reached a speed of 33.24 m.p.h. in breaking his world record of 35.92 seconds, set Dec. 4 in Norway.

PHOENIX - Shortly after he avoided an arbitration hearing with the Dodgers and agreed to a $4.3-million salary for the upcoming season, Kenley Jansen reflected on how he went from a light-hitting catching prospect to the closer of baseball's most expensive team. "It's unbelievable how stuff works that quick," Jansen said. "Now, a million-dollar contract. That's pretty awesome. " Jansen, 26, was paid $512,000 last season. When he and the Dodgers exchanged salary figures last month, he asked for $5.05 million and the team offered $3.5 million.

The Beard is coming back. Free-agent right-hander Brian Wilson on Thursday signed a new deal with the Dodgers, a one-year, $10-million contract to return as closer Kenley Jansen's setup man. Wilson was looking to return to a closer role, but the former All-Star, who makes his off-season home in Los Angeles, made an exception for the Dodgers, provided they pay him like a ninth-inning pitcher. They are, and they also promised him the chance to become closer should Jansen falter or get injured, according to people familiar with their discussions who spoke under the condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been announced.
