Josh McRoberts was doing his McRambis thing, bulling others out of the way for rebounds, chasing loose balls and even showing some offensive might with a couple of dunks. Troy Murphy had his moments too, batting balls to teammates and burying a baseline jumper early in the fourth quarter a tick before the shot clock expired. The Lakers post players who filled in for the suspended Andrew Bynum came up big for much of their team's opener Sunday at Staples Center until a disastrous stretch over the final two minutes left them feeling two inches tall.

But the Constitution does not allow the unnecessary trammeling of free expression even for the noblest of purposes."

Thank you for publishing such a complete career summary of Col. John Paul Stapp (obituary, Nov. 22) and for including a reference to "Murphy's Law," correctly attributing it to my father, Edward A. Murphy Jr. (1918-1989). However, it was not Murphy who "rigged a harness incorrectly." It was a technician on his test team, who will forever go politely nameless. The sensor harness mistake was the classic of being absolutely wrong. Sensors intended to switch "on" the instant the rocket sled test started were incorrectly connected to switch "off."
