Mike Tyson was doomed the day he allowed himself to become a part of the Don King circus. I know Cus D'Amato is turning over in his grave and weeping for the iron-fisted young pugilist he trained and developed. Where Cus tried to instill some honor and pride in a talented young man, Don King fed Tyson a steady diet of hate and greed.

"Tell me something," said Ted Dawson on the telephone. "Why am I always criticized in the newspapers?" I answered that it probably was because of his effusive, emotional style. Dawson, the first-string sportscaster at KABC-TV Channel 7 for nearly eight years, is gushy on the air, which clashes with the news tradition of reporters keeping their emotions out of their stories. In contrast, Dawson tries to keep stories out of his emotions.
