They formed arguably the greatest college outfield of their time, and possibly for generations to come. Even in the long and distinguished history of Arizona State baseball, that cradle of major league talent that produced some of the finest players in the game, no three outfielders with their ability and potential played side by side like they did. Perhaps no three others will ever again.

In "A Christmas Puzzle" (TV Times, Dec. 15), Michael Wilmington attempts a commentary on why today's (holiday) films lack the spirit of movies made years ago. Yet Wilmington does little to explain why an entire generation which came of age during the 1930s and '40s could write, produce and act in all earnestness in such movies as "It's a Wonderful Life" and utter their lines with a straight face. One need only see the smirky grin of Bill Murray in "Scrooged" to note the difference.

Uelmen, Commentary, Feb. 25: "We want judges to decide cases by following the law and their conscience, not polls," and, "The problem is, that was the defense presented by Rose Bird, Cruz Reynoso and Joseph Grodin in 1986. And look where it got them," Uelmen says. The problem was that the people did not believe Chief Justice Bird and company actually followed the law. Under Bird, the laws on the books weren't laws at all, but merely suggestions which the courts were free to accept or reject at whim.
