By most accounts, the horn--or the French horn as non-players continue to call the gracefully circular, beautifully toned piece of brass--is the most difficult of instruments to master. But not according to Richard Todd, the principal horn player of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, who will lead his jazz quartet Saturday at Orange Coast Community College in Costa Mesa.

I don't believe in ad hominem--or in this case, ad feminem--reviewing, and I mostly object to the proposition that you should belong to a human category--gender, race, ethnic group--to write about it. But it would be gross affectation not to notice that Ann Patchett is a young white woman. Not only has she written one of the most winning evocations of a father's love that I can think of, but she has lodged it in a first-person narrative by the middle-aged black manager of a Memphis bar.

When it comes to recital repertory for solo brass instruments, the pickings are very slim. It's a shame really, for it leaves talented performers like hornist Richard Todd--principal horn of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, winner of the Gold Medal in the 1980 Concours Internationale Toulon--all dressed up with basically nothing to play. Certainly there was little of great musical merit or interest on his Pro Musicis Recital at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Tuesday night.

The New Orleans Saints waived quarterback Richard Todd Monday as NFL teams began paring down to this week's 50-man limit. "Richard is a good quarterback who competed hard to be our No. 1 quarterback," Coach Jim Mora said. "However, at this time I felt that Bobby Hebert and Dave Wilson fit better into our plans than Richard did. "We released Richard so that he would have an opportunity to catch on with another team. He is definitely capable of playing more football in the NFL."

We are seldom at a loss for words when describing an unfamiliar culture like that of the Yupik Eskimos portrayed here: "traditional lifestyle" or "subsistence hunting and fishing," we say, confidently and with a trace of condescension.

Red Smith was right: 90 feet between bases is the closest humankind has come to perfection. The beauty of baseball has survived domed stadiums, artificial grass, proprietary greed, players who move from one city to another like hired guns in the Old West, designated hitters and even Bowie Kuhn. Whether or not understanding the game is a code-breaking key to the mind and heart of America, the symbolic richness of baseball has, of late, proven a popular if not instructive guide to how Americans dream and act and have their being.

September 7, 1990 | From Times Wire Services
Facing a debt of $5 million, New England Monthly magazine will cease publication this month, its editors announced today. Richard Todd, editor of the 6-year-old publication, told the magazine's 30 employees Thursday that the September issue will be the last. "It's been a tough year for everyone in the magazine business," Todd said. "For us, it proved fatal."
