The question I would like answered regarding the times being posted at the track championships this week is not whether South Africa's Caster Semenya is a man but whether Jamaica's Usain Bolt is a human.

With all due respect, most people read the newspaper to find out what is going on in the world. If I wanted to discover what is going on in the "blogs," I would go on the Internet. Please give us more sports, and less blogs. Ralph S. Brax Lancaster -- Re the Sports section's new design and change of content, I'm mourning Briefing. Jerry Clark Glendale

I've always enjoyed the tennis commentary of Bud Collins, who will be leaving NBC after 35 years. My favorite Collins quote is his answer a few years ago to an interviewer's question as to why Anna Kournikova was on the cover of so many sports magazines when she had never won a major tournament: "Because her backside is better than her backhand."

Lines curled around corners and out doors at America's post offices Tuesday as letter writers hustled to buy stamps to cover the new postage rate. "Beat the Rush: G Stamps 32 cents," urged a sign in Washington's 19th Street postal station as customers waited. In Rochester, N.Y., the line snaked back 25 yards at times, prompting many to turn away. Others were willing to put an extra 29-cent stamp on a letter rather than wait.
