IN the fall of 1917, Pablo Picasso attended a bullfight with Ernest Ansermet and unwittingly gave the Swiss conductor a tutorial on one of the central issues in modern art: How do you represent a thing? Picasso had brought a sketchbook to the corrida and proceeded to fill it with drawing after drawing of the bull as it was being jabbed by picadors.

They touch down at Dulles at 2 a.m., a mother and two children, the family of a spy. The terminal is empty, feels cavernous. The boy, 9, sits on the floor while his mom figures out what to do. He is used to airports. He and his sister, CIA brats, have flown all over the world. He even got left behind in an airport one time when his father, the spy, boarded a plane without him. John Richardson was like that -- so wrapped up in his work he could forget his little boy, his namesake.

Being a Dodger fan living in San Diego, I keep hearing how the Dodgers will fade. Well, Tommy, if you pull this one off you deserve to be manager of the decade. Good luck! JOHN RICHARDSON Carlsbad

The media has mentioned very little the name of one Dodger who really contributed during the past season. Franklin Stubbs played outstanding defense and got several key hits and RBIs. Way to go, Franklin--the ghost of Garvey can finally rest in peace. John Richardson Carlsbad

I would like to point out a simple but effective solution to pain-compliance. It is a stretcher. It has been used by many police departments across the country to remove peaceful demonstrators going limp. It is not only easier on the demonstrator, but much easier on the police. Of course it does not make a lasting impression or inflict bodily damage to the demonstrator, which is evidently what some of the police departments want. There is a place for pain-compliance, but only for those violently resisting arrest.

Every profession has its jealousies. Nowhere can this be truer than in the literary world, where back-stabbing is epidemic. New York's lit Establishment is rocking and rolling with the feud between the genius, Norman Mailer, and the talent, John Richardson. (You do recall that George Gershwin once pointed to the upper berth in a train and told Oscar Levant to climb up. "Why?" asked Oscar. "That's the difference between talent and genius," said George, settling himself into the lower berth.

The search for John Richardson leads here, to Sierra Madre, to a cemetery shaded by magnolia trees, to a grassy knoll covered with sunny yellow wildflowers. His name is on the door, so to speak--on the cemetery's black wrought-iron gate, on a plaque noting that "John Richardson, a Civil War veteran," was the first to be buried here in 1884. But it's not clear where. Richardson is the great-great-great-grandfather of a 35-year-old Tacoma, Wash.

The embodiment of defense, Veronica Johns-Richardson played a vital role in Troy winning its first Southern Section girls' basketball championship. The Warriors, the top-ranked team in Orange County at the beginning of the season and the best team at the end, weathered a storm of controversy in December and responded with 18 consecutive victories, culminating in a Division I-A title with a win over the top-ranked team in the state, Ventura Buena.

It has been a fun summer for Troy High junior point guard Veronica Johns-Richardson. She hasn't done everything she wanted to do--an avid surfer, she's only been to the beach twice--but she did do something important to her future as a basketball player. Johns-Richardson, the county's fifth-best scorer last season (19.3 points), played with the Swish club basketball team at several tournaments, including the high profile Oregon City (Ore.) tournament.

A wrecking ball couldn't have brought down the house quicker than Veronica Johns-Richardson did Friday night. The sophomore guard scored 15 of her 23 points in the third quarter to rally fourth-ranked Troy to a 54-42 victory over Sonora in a Freeway League girls' basketball game at Sonora. The Warriors (20-0, 5-0 in league) trailed by as many as nine points in the first half, but took the lead with a 16-0 run to start the third quarter. Johns-Richardson scored 11 points during the run.

Veronica Johns-Richardson isn't sure what she wants. Does she go to college to become a teacher or study business? Or communications? Or Spanish? Or religious studies? "There are so many things I want to do," she says, "and not enough time to do them." Time is on her side right now. Johns-Richardson is just a sophomore at Troy High School, one of the most gifted basketball players in Orange County. She has a 4.14 grade-point average and a 19.0 scoring average.
