Susan King's interview of Ross Greenburg (" 'The '60s, Baseball's Last Decade of Innocence," July 17) sadly perpetuates the denial that was also Mickey Mantle's during his practicing-alcoholic years, that his alcoholism only developed after his playing days. Reading Mickey's autobiography and his family's account of their lives, by any enlightened measure, Mickey was an acute alcoholic during all of his years as a Yankee. Why is this important to me?

Once a bully, always a bully. There was no need for ESPN's Jeremy Schaap to ask Bob Knight if he was going to change. During Tuesday's interview with Schaap, the fired Indiana basketball coach, never hinting at being sorry for anything, showed he's still the bully he always has been. Knight would ramble and Schaap, the son of longtime broadcaster Dick Schaap who has built a reputation of his own as a good interviewer, would try to reel him in.

A few weeks ago, after the New York Yankees were humiliated 22-0 by the Cleveland Indians, Yankee owner George Steinbrenner ordered inspirational messages posted around Yankee Stadium and released a statement comparing the team's resiliency to that of New Yorkers as the city recovered from the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Perhaps Steinbrenner had been thinking about the new HBO film, "Nine Innings From Ground Zero," which makes the same connection.
