OAKLAND -- A successful return to the rotation by Angels right-hander Garrett Richards on Saturday was marred by a rare meltdown by reliever Scott Downs, who gave up a pinch-hit, two-run home run to Derek Norris in the seventh inning of a 3-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum. Richards gave up three hits in five scoreless innings and left with a 1-0 lead, but a bullpen that suffered its second blown save in five games couldn't hold on, and the Angels fell 12 games behind the American League West Division-leading A's, matching their largest deficit of the season.

ELEGANT CARS GLIDING THROUGH A DECAYING infrastructure, the dispossessed huddling in the shadow of bright skyscrapers, the sensation of a dystopian, multiethnic civilization that has managed to simultaneously advance and regress--these are scenes of modern urban decline, and if they make you think of a movie, and chances are they will, it can have only one name: "Blade Runner." Few, if any, motion pictures have the gift of predicting the future as well as crystallizing an indelible image of it, but that is the key to "Blade Runner's" accomplishments.

If anything can be learned from the Anna Hirth right-to-die case, it is that we don't need a Living Will to be starved to death. When Hemlock Society's attorney Richard Scott arrives on the scene, we can get our right to die whether we want it or not. I hope Anna Hirth did not suffer greatly. MARILYN SMYTH San Diego
