Kenneth Dean Hunt is no criminal mastermind. He was a handyman, the guy next door, a man with a record of sex crimes and aggressive outbursts. Yet, Hunt, 34, nearly managed to escape justice after raping and killing two women in his neighborhood. His crimes, a decade apart, were decidedly imperfect, but he managed to avoid detection: The first time, a tip pointing in his direction didn't register with police; the second time, investigators didn't realize a murder had occurred.

Re "The deal of the art," editorial, Feb. 18 The Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Eli Broad are a perfect marriage. The two coming together was a natural. Not only does this relieve LACMA of the burden and some responsibilities, it allows Broad to have a major museum on a world-class art campus. Yes, he gave the money to build this amazing building, but LACMA provides the space, employees, advertising and the name recognition. As a docent, I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share this amazing collection with students from all over the city, and I hope this marriage will remain a happy one. Sherry J. Davis Beverlywood

The home opener San Francisco almost never saw became a home opener unlike any baseball has ever seen here Monday. Three members of the Grateful Dead, who rehearsed the lyrics to make sure they got it right, sang the national anthem without a hitch. Tony Bennett belted out "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," and he got it right, too. Then Barry Bonds, in his first home at-bat since getting a $43.

Re "A poor dog's best friend," Column One, July 13 The irony of Rene Lynch's touching and wonderful article about the compassion showed to an abused dog - and the Freeh report about the apathy of highly educated, highly paid professionals toward abused children at Penn State University - appearing on successive pages in Friday's Times makes a reader wonder. What's wrong with people when they get into positions of power? Why would protecting innocent children be less worthy of a Penn State or a Roman Catholic Church or a Jewish Orthodox community or any other insulated institution?

I APPLAUD the Los Angeles County Museum of Art for making such a bold statement with its purchase of "The Illegal Operation" by Ed Kienholz ["LACMA Adds Kienholz but Not the Furor," by Suzanne Muchnic, Aug. 20]. In this political year, when Rowe vs. Wade is in danger of being overturned, it is so important that we keep our focus on issues that can effect all of us in one way or another. Through art we can tell this tale. And maybe "we have come along way, baby." Sherry J. Davis Los Angeles -- I FIND it somewhat risible that Ed Kienholz's work should be considered even vaguely controversial now. While sculptures like "Back Seat Dodge '38" and "The Illegal Operation" were shocking and bold within the context of their day, now they are interesting and quaint.

Life is not always kind to tourist attractions. Take, for example, the eight determined souls who have spent the last three weeks confined to the catwalk of a billboard at Sunset and La Cienega boulevards, vying in an endurance contest that won't end until seven come down. Tour buses cruising Sunset in search of the quaint and the bizarre have recently added the billboard's inhabitants to their sightseeing attractions.

Golf is eight times more likely than running to kill a Japanese man over 60, according to a study by Japan's Ministry of Health. "I've got a personal list of 64 people who died on the putting greens," Keizo Kogure, a sports doctor, told the Wall Street Journal. He estimates that every year, about 4,750 golfers take the fairway to heaven. By the way, Kogure is the author of a book, "How to Die Early by Playing Golf."

Todd Benzinger, who has played for four teams in three years, is trying to catch on with the San Francisco Giants. Benzinger, who can play a lot of positions, is ambivalent about his traveled career. "The way I look at it, if you're not fortunate enough to play with one team your whole career, you might as well play for eight or nine," he told Tim Keown of the San Francisco Chronicle. Benzinger played for the Dodgers last season and said that was his worst year.

General Manager Sandy Alderson of the Oakland Athletics said Wednesday he is trying to trade unhappy outfielder Rickey Henderson, who said he wants to play elsewhere if the A's won't open talks for a new contract. "We're in the process of contacting them all," Alderson said. "It's a process we've gone through (the past two years) with Rickey at his request. In the past there's been little or no interest. "It's obvious most clubs--including ours--consider attitude as important as ability.
