Robert M. Cox, who changed garbage disposers from an unacceptable and unnecessary gadget into a must-have kitchen appliance required by many municipal sanitation systems, has died. He was 84. Cox, who retired 12 years ago as executive vice president of In-Sink-Erator, died of cancer June 11 in his home near Lahaina on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Born and brought up in Muncie, Ind., Cox worked his way up in business, joining In-Sink-Erator Manufacturing Co. in Racine, Wis.

Backup offensive tackle Robert Cox twisted his knee during practice Thursday, but Coach John Robinson said it probably wasn't a serious injury. "When he went down and rolled over, I thought 'this guy is gone,' " Robinson said. "(But he) went from deathbed to recovery fast." Cox was reported to be walking in the locker room after practice, and the early prognosis was that there was no ligament damage.

Backup tackle Robert Cox signed with the Rams just in time to beat Gerald Perry into camp by one day. Perry, the recently-acquired tackle who was released from Arapahoe (Denver) County Jail Saturday, is scheduled to arrive in Irvine and report to training camp today, Ram Coach John Robinson said. Perry signed a two-year agreement with Ram executive Tank Younger after he was released, then flew home to Louisiana to spend some time with his family.

Aaron Cox, who couldn't wait for the day he caught his first pass for the Rams, is still waiting after being shut out in Saturday's Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. In fact, as debuts go for rookie wide receivers with high expectations, Saturday wasn't much of a day at all. Cox, the team's first-round pick from Arizona State, didn't make a catch in the 14-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Second-round choice Willie Anderson from UCLA had just one reception for 10 yards.

The Rams' Robert Cox remembered one of America's most famous athletes as he practiced on the fields outside Olympiastadion Tuesday. Cox, who earned his degree in history at UCLA, was standing knee deep in it. Books are books. This, he knew, was education. Cox's career as an offensive tackle with the Rams, burgeoning as it is, came into proper perspective.

Greg Bell signed a two-year contract with the Rams Monday, a deal his agent said left Bell "satisfied," though the running back appeared anything but gleeful. Bell, the Rams' leading rusher last season, signed to receive a base salary of about $500,000 a year plus incentives. Reserve tackle Robert Cox also signed Monday and will get about $185,000 this year and $200,000 the next.

Someone whose fingernails have been torn out can use his hands only with vehemence; only with gentleness. Jacobo Timerman, the Argentine editor who was abducted under the dictatorship, held incognito and tortured, has been, ever since, one of the most piercing voices raised against the state brutalities of our times. He is dramatic, graphic and concrete; his writing is memorable in its ability to convey passion and wit in terms of everyday incongruities. Timerman's style is extreme.

Can we please have the last negative letter ever written in regard to Garret Anderson? If you would rather have had Jim Edmonds and his all-out "crashing into the wall" hustle, then we all would have missed out on GA's three-run double in Game 7 of the 2002 World Series, the difference maker in the Angels' only championship. Garret Anderson has been nothing but class. Can I get an amen from teammates and true fans alike? Robert Cox Trabuco Canyon -- Because Garret Anderson looks effortless does not mean he doesn't try. This is the same thing they used to say about another player, Hank Aaron.

Irv Pankey's holdout ended quickly and quietly Friday afternoon as the Rams' left tackle surprised everyone by signing a two-year contract. It couldn't have come at a better time for the team, which was facing an offensive line crisis. In three days, the Rams will depart for Tokyo and an exhibition game against the San Francisco 49ers Aug. 6 (Japan time). Pankey's signing gives the team three starters in the line to go with center Doug Smith and right tackle Jackie Slater.
