NEW ORLEANS - When Clippers Coach Doc Rivers was asked Wednesday night about the chances of J.J. Redick returning to play with the team on this trip, Rivers left the assembled media confused with his answers. Redick was on the court shooting before the Clippers played the New Orleans Pelicans, but he still missed his 21st consecutive game because of a bulging disk in his back. Redick will be with the Clippers on the entire five-game trip and Rivers was asked if he would play.

Life is a vast open highway. Along the way, we pull over for tourist sights, rest stops and flat tires. Near the end of our journey, if we try to travel the same road again, we find, like Route 66, our memory is paved-over in parts, completely gone in others, replaced with newer faster-moving interstates in some sections, but ultimately we come to a dead end. Ella Robina, our narrator in Michael Zadoorian's novel "The Leisure Seeker," is dying of cancer.

It's the 30th season of coaching football at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame for Kevin Rooney , so it's only fitting that he take his team on its first out-of-state road trip to the place where high school football means everything, Texas. Today at about 5:30 p.m. Pacific time, you can turn on Fox Sports West and watch the Knights take on Spring (Texas) Klein Oak from the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium as part of the Kirk Herbstreit Challenge. "It's an honor to be invited because we don't have to pay anything, and to play in that stadium is a great opportunity," Rooney said.

This is a monumental road trip for the Kings ... or it is not, depending on who's doing the talking. The Kings open a four-game trip in Chicago tonight. That is followed by a Canadian tour, where they will face Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto -- three of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. "This is a big swing for us ...," forward Jeremy Roenick said. "If we can come back over .500 on this road trip, I think it sets us up for a tremendous season, in my opinion."

I enjoyed "Continent, on Cruise Control," June 15, by Susan Spano. I thought you left out one major piece of advice, however -- using a GPS system. We used our Garmin Nuvi 670 on a two-week driving trip to Germany in March and it worked great. The GPS systems do not replace maps, but they are indispensable travel aids now. They provide not only route directions but also traffic warnings and directions to restaurants, hotels and gas stations. Robert V. LaBerge San Diego -- Spano's article was excellent, with one exception.
