While reading Shav Glick's last article, which outlined his incredible career, I recalled that in 1969 at Riverside, I had the honor of giving The Times' new motor racing reporter his first ride in a race car. Though his face was distorted from the 130-mph breeze -- we were in an open roadster with no wind protection on his side -- he forced a faint smile. For 36 years since, Shav has put smiles on racers' faces with his accurate, passionate and unbiased reporting. He will be sorely missed.

WASHINGTON - Immigration officials acknowledged Thursday that they had released 2,228 illegal immigrants from detention in February and early March, not several hundred as they previously had announced, in an effort to reduce spending in advance of mandatory budget cuts. John Morton, director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told a House subcommittee hearing that four of those discharged were rearrested after agents discovered they had violent criminal records. At least six others had felony convictions or had repeatedly violated immigration laws, Morton said, and dozens more had been arrested for shoplifting and petty larceny, or cited for drunk driving.

John Morton, who has coached in the NFL with the New Orleans Saints and the Oakland Raiders, will replace Lane Kiffin on USC's staff, Coach Pete Carroll said Monday. Morton was an offensive assistant and passing game coach this season for the Saints. He will be the Trojans' receivers coach and passing game coordinator. Morton, 37, worked for the Raiders for seven years and was a member of the coaching staff in 2002-04.

USC receivers coach Tee Martin was in Knoxville, Tenn., on Monday to meet with new Volunteers Coach Butch Jones, according to several reports. It should come as no surprise. Martin quarterbacked Tennessee's 1998 national championship team and would be a popular addition to Jones' staff if he can be lured away from the Trojans. Last week, after Jones was hired, Martin was asked about the possibility of hearing from Tennessee. "That's where I went to school, that's my alma mater, that's always home for me,” Martin told The Times.

When you see a man's name followed by the numbers 10-20 , you can assume one of two things: Either the man has very bad eyesight or he's a horrible boxer. John Morton's eyes are normal, and he is not a bad boxer. What the heavyweight from Louisville, Ky., had was a bad manager and a worse trainer, he claims, guys who threw him into a ring on a day's notice against some of the top heavyweights in the world.

Re "Morning Becomes Apoplectic," Commentary, July 30: Rob Long's tongue-in-cheek diatribe against Santa Monica's National Public Radio station KCRW because of its liberal bias and its sophistication seems out of place in a country whose radio waves are virtually owned by right-wing Rush Limbaugh-philes, most of whom exhibit very little, if any, sophistication. I do confess that KCRW's "Bookworm" show is a little over the top for me, even though I've lived with a novelist for 32 years.
