"Will We Rule the Skies?" (Commentary, Oct. 1) by Gen. Michael Ryan, the chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, left two little facts out: The number of F-22 Raptors to be built. (Some say 20, others say three times that number.) That each F-22 Raptor will cost the American taxpayer over $200 million. I'm sure this was just a little oversight. GENE POE Los Angeles

Friday night's game was all about Clippers All-Star power forward Blake Griffin dominating the Toronto Raptors, when he wasn't getting in foul trouble. But this game was also about DeAndre Jordan staying the course when he was intentionally fouled by the Raptors and it was about Willie Green providing the Clippers with a spark when it was needed. Griffin, who played just 28 minutes and 19 seconds because of foul problems, had 36 points on 13-for-18 shooting and eight rebounds to help the Clippers to a 118-105 victory over the Raptors at Staples Center.

Imagine Batman and the Joker are interested in fractional ownership of the same pickup truck. The caped crusader would want it all-black, eminently capable of off-roading, with a penchant for getting airborne. His nemesis might favor it in a crazy shade of orange, with a maniacal engine under the hood and an anarchists' disregard for fuel economy. The truck would be order and chaos fused together. Yin and yang. It would be the 2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. Based on the F-150, a truck that's been the most popular vehicle in the U.S. for decades, the Raptor package adds a whole mess of menace and off-road accoutrement.

  DENVER -- Clippers All-Star point guard Chris Paul is inching closer to playing basketball again, perhaps as soon as Friday night when his team hosts the Toronto Raptors at Staples Center. Paul, who has sat out 16 games because of a separated right shoulder, has been doing some shooting and running drills on his own. He hasn't practiced with the team because the Clippers haven't practiced recently. But after the Clippers had a shootaround Monday, Coach Doc Rivers said Paul "gets on the floor and we go over plays.

If only we'd had the F/A-22 Raptor jet on the morning of Sept. 11. The ultra-fast stealth aircraft could have intercepted and shot down the second airliner heading for the south tower of the World Trade Center in New York City--and possibly those that crashed into the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania as well. This claim--complete with the computer modeling to back it up--has been circulating in hushed whispers inside the Air Force recently, along with news that the Air Force's new fighter, scheduled for deployment in the next five years, is being recast as an essential part of any missile defense of the United States.

Congress is closing in on the down payment of a huge spending package, designed to create jobs to ward off double-digit unemployment and begin a revival of the tanking U.S. economy. So here is a modest proposal: The federal government -- which means you and I -- should pump $62 billion into the nation's nonprofit cultural infrastructure. Yes, that's billion-with-a-b, not million-with-an-m. Forget about the silly dickering over an anemic $50-million boost for the National Endowment for the Arts.

At a once-secret airfield outside Moscow, test pilot Sergei Bogdan proudly introduces reporters to what was billed as the latest in Russian military aircraft technology, the Su-35 fighter jet. But the plane is only an upgrade of a 20-year-old model -- and it can't match the speed and stealth of the latest U.S. fighter, the F-22 Raptor, which entered service in 2005. Former President Vladimir V. Putin, now Russia's prime minister, has boasted of new weapons systems and of strengthening the armed forces, raising fears in the West of a Cold War-style military buildup.

Redick was full of doubt about being able to return after he left the Clippers' game Saturday against the Toronto Raptors in the first quarter, saying "No, three times," about the prospect.

Toronto Raptor forward Jerome Williams called the booing of the Canadian national anthem by Detroit Piston fans "sad." Before Sunday's Game 1 of the first-round playoff series, the capacity crowd at the Palace of Auburn Hills booed "O Canada" from beginning to end. "That was something I wouldn't have expected from a city like Detroit. It was disheartening," Williams, a former Piston, said after Monday's practice. "It was a total lack of respect."
