Re "Spinning turmoil in S.F.," Aug. 12 How do cyclists intimidate motorists with their "sharp elbows?" Hundreds of cyclists are killed in the U.S. every year. How many motorists are killed by reckless bicyclists? Doug Lane Los Angeles There's been lots of coverage about bike riding lately. Bicyclists claim that they want to share the road. OK, let's start with sharing some responsibility. Have all bicyclists take a test to be licensed to be sure they know the rules of the road.

The Ducks like their reputation as road warriors, but when asked about their tendency to flounder on home ice. "If I gave you an answer for why we've been playing like this at home, I'd be lying through my teeth," Duck Coach Pierre Page said. "If I had the answer, we wouldn't be playing like this. We'll look at the tapes of scoring chances for and against, at home and on the road, and see what we can come up with."

Although many signs point to a strengthening U.S. economy, the overwhelming sentiment in the business travel world remains doing more with less. That attitude came across in a recent study that found many business travelers are staying a few extra nights to handle more business instead of making multiple trips. Partly as a result, the estimated total number of trips in the U.S. has dropped 22% over the last decade,  but overall spending on business travel has increased 3.3%, according to a study released last week by the global Business Travel Assn., a Virginia-based trade group.

To complete another three-peat this spring, Kobe Bryant and the Lakers might have to win as many as three playoff series in which they do not hold home-court advantage. ? That may concern Lakers fans because, since Shaquille O'Neal departed in 2004, the Lakers have yet to win one. ? With a statue of Jerry West set for unveiling Thursday, it's well past time for Sandy Koufax to be similarly honored. ? If a Grammy were awarded for best "Grammy trip," it would go to Anze Kopitar and the streaking Kings.

The concept behind the new wave of hand-held computers based on Microsoft's Windows CE software is terrific: A small, hand-held device runs software that's compatible with what you use on your desktop machine. I've taken the Compaq PC Companion on several business trips, though, and while I love the concept, I'm not thrilled with its usability. True to its design goal, the PC Companion is easy to carry. At 13 ounces and 6.8 inches by 3.6 inches by 1 inch, it slips easily into a briefcase.

No longer should they simply be the Warriors. Road Warriors fits the Woodbridge High School basketball team much better, especially after what happened Saturday afternoon at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum Arena. The Southern Section 2-A champions, playing their sixth straight game away from home, came farther than ever as they capped an outstanding season. They shot 60% from the field and 92% from the free-throw line en route to an 89-63 victory over No.

The easiest way to understand "Interstate 82" is to imagine "The Road Warrior" set in the American Southwest in the early 1980s, with Samuel L. Jackson dressed in a "Miami Vice" suit playing the lead. Got it? This sequel to "Interstate 76," the mother of all highway combat games, takes road rage to outrageous new levels as players slip behind the wheel of some "bad-ass cars" outfitted with some "big-ass guns." Their words, not mine.

MAYBE, I'll swim with the whales tomorrow," my husband says. Is he out of his mind? I wonder. How will I bring his remains back to his parents? I wonder. What am I doing in this dark, far-from-immaculate hotel room in Ciudad Constitucion in Baja California? What I'd hoped would be a romantic Mexican holiday is turning into the relationship equivalent of that automotive endurance classic--the Baja Torture Test. Travel broadens the mind, but it also broadens the differences between even the most compatible couples.

There has been a lot of controversy over the San Joaquin Hills tollway, and gritty determination to get the road built in the face of stiff opposition has been a necessary survival technique for tollway planners. But the Transportation Corridor Agencies have seemed at times more like road warriors than road builders. The tollway officials need to be looking for ways of building constructive relationships, even with the vanquished. Not all of this is the agency's fault.

First, we turned back the clocks. Then the NFL did. Four years after upsetting New England in the Super Bowl, the New York Giants did it again Sunday, knocking off the Patriots, 24-20. New England was favored by nine and had won 20 regular-season games in a row at home. San Francisco improved to 4-0 on the road by winning at Washington, 19-11. The 49ers have their best record away from home since 1992, and all four of those victories have come in the Eastern time zone — once a dead zone for them.

The descent started when they lost to a team two days before that had established records for professional futility. On Sunday, the Clippers had a chance to make amends against a Toronto Raptors team that had dropped 16 of its last 17 games. They couldn't lose two in a row to opponents that have struggled so badly, could they? These are, of course, the Clippers. Every time they give a hint that the bad old days are behind them, they show that a culture takes a lot of time to change, one Blake Griffin dunk at a time.

Andrew Bynu m was 45 minutes from his hometown, but miles away from having an effective game. The Lakers' 22-year-old center continued a stretch of frayed efforts, getting undone by foul trouble in the Lakers' 103-84 victory Saturday over the New Jersey Nets. He had four points and three rebounds in 11 minutes before fouling out with 8:24 to play. It was the third consecutive game in which he took only three rebounds. He has been slowed by an upper respiratory infection, but he wasn't happy with the way things went down so close to Plainsboro, N.J., where he was living when the Lakers made him the 10th pick in the 2005 draft.

Re "Narrow road is a zone of conflict," July 9 Your fascinating article on "road rage" in Mandeville Canyon gives reasons for reflection as increasing numbers of bicycles and cars compete for limited road space. As a bicyclist and an auto driver, I see discourteous and dangerous practices in both groups. Bicyclists can even be more courteous to each other. For instance, it is difficult for the bicyclist to hear passing bicycles (or hybrid cars) approaching from the rear. My heavy, slow mountain bike is passed by racing bikes.

Even with a 21-3-6 record and an NHL-best 48 points, there are those that aren't ready to anoint the Ducks as the league's top team, pointing to their league-high 19 home games to start the season. The Ducks will have the opportunity to offer further proof of their strength away from the Honda Center when they visit the Washington Capitals tonight to begin their longest trip of the season.
