Tina Marie Machado has lost her Miss Hawaii USA crown after less than a week. Pageant officials said she is too old at 25 and won by mistake. Machado was told Tuesday to step down in favor of Toni Leimomi Costa, 18, runner-up in the pageant last week. Pageant director Gay Zuercher said Miss Hawaii USA entrants must be under 25 and it was an error when Machado--who turned 25 in November--was allowed to enter.

I have never quite gotten the Pat Tillman story out of my system. Only now am I understanding why. It has been six years and two days since he died, his head blown off amid a pile of rocks on the side of a hill in Afghanistan, murdered by guys on his own team, other U.S. soldiers. After lying about it, the military eventually called it friendly fire and treated it as a mistake. Horrible, yes, they said. But a mistake. I have never quite gotten the Pat Tillman story out of my system.

Janet Reno's only mistake was in apologizing for making a mistake! A brilliant, compassionate attorney general made a measured decision based on the best intelligence offered at the time by the experts. She did her job with courage, and with courage accepted the responsibility for her decision. I commend her. RACHEL BRYANT DRUTEN Palm Desert
