I was appalled, but not surprised, to find Bobby Bland's appearance at Leimert Park listed under the Jazz category on Page E3 [Weekend Forecast, June 22]. Perhaps if the Los Angeles Times assigned writers who knew something about the subject -- jazz in particular -- we readers would get better and more informative coverage of that genre. But, as Louis Armstrong once said when asked "What is jazz?" by a neophyte journalist, he answered, "If you have to ask that question you'll never know what it is!"

Re "Fathers don't always know best," Opinion, July 4 Mark Kurlansky writes that our country is the "most backward democracy in the West" and that we offer the "worst benefits for workers"; perhaps he can enlighten us as to why freedom-loving people from around the world want to come to this country for a better life for themselves and their families. We have immigration issues in the U.S. because we are the best. I will begin to worry about the United States when we no longer are a refuge for downtrodden masses.

Even when the Kings win the lottery, the jackpot belongs to somebody else. The Ottawa Senators kept the No. 1 pick in the July 8 draft when the longshot Kings won the first NHL lottery Sunday, but moved up only to third because teams are allowed to jump no more than four spots under the weighted system. All 10 non-playoff teams competed in the lottery, but only the teams with the five-worst records had a shot at No. 1.

The post-McNall era is under way for the Kings, and not a moment too soon for a hockey franchise trying to conduct business as usual while its most visible figure not named Wayne is on such thin ice that a fleet of Zambonis couldn't help. What was Bruce McNall doing at that Kings' exhibition in San Diego? "Signing autographs constantly," said Joe Cohen, the new chairman of the Kings.

When the Super Bowl of soccer--the 1994 World Cup--is aired next summer, the charismatic head coach of America's World Cup team, Bora Milutinovic, will star in Spanish-language TV and print ads promoting Budweiser beer. And that has some critics raising sharp protests. After all, consumers would never see an active National Football league coach hawking beer. The NFL forbids current coaches or players from appearing in ads for alcoholic beverages--except those that promote responsible drinking.
