Jason Sherman answers the phone with a self-conscious smirk in his voice. Talking to a reporter on this Saturday afternoon from his home in Toronto, he's silly right from the start. Is this the cerebral, sharp-witted, emotionally charged playwright of "Three in the Back, Two in the Head," the political thriller based on the true story of a mad-scientist-turned-weapons-dealer? Or the writer of "Patience," a modern take on the Job parable?

This letter is concerning a recent article which stated that American youths are fatter and less fit than they were 10 years ago. It said one of the reasons is the fact that parents today are less apt to involve their kids in "organized" sports because of the injury risk involved. I find this hard to swallow. Can't children get exercise without being in organized sports? It seems to me it's the parents who are less fit--they must not be strong enough to drag their kids away from the TV set.

Seven coaches and 78 athletes, including seven former Olympians, represent the Valley area. That's one fewer athlete than Minnesota and five more than Colorado, home of several Olympic sport training centers.

No one pays for a ticket, and the seats fill up fast. The regulars call out hellos and, once they've secured a spot, stand talking in the aisles. The director welcomes everyone, advertises upcoming programs and announces that, because the evening's performance is intermission-less, the weekly fund-raising raffle will be held afterward. Then the performers--who include Fred Savage, Ed Asner and Wayne Rogers--take the stage, and the room erupts in expectant applause.

It's not Ron Artest's fault that injuries occurred to players on the team this season. It's not Ron Artest's fault that the Lakers didn't acquire other players this off-season to provide depth. It's not Ron Artest's fault that Derek Fisher is showing his age after many seasons and playoff games. It's not Ron Artest's fault that the bench struggles and cannot provide relief for the starters. And it's not Ron Artest's fault that the other contenders in the West upgraded their rosters.
