Bill Shirley writes: "Palmer and Nicklaus have been going at it on some of the planet's choicest pieces of real estate for 30 years. Seldom have two athletes of such stature battled one another for so long." Athletes? Athletes ? When are these fatuous sportswriters, who are so in love with the game (not sport) of golf going to finally wise up and be objective enough to acknowledge that golfers are not athletes. A golfer is no more an athlete than a bowler, a billiards player, a chess player or a tiddlywinks player.

Re " 'Bring Them On,' Bush Says of Iraqi Resisters," July 3: Bring 'em on. How about that as an incitement to murder? From the cool and luxurious surroundings of the White House, President Bush challenges Iraqis to do their worst, and in the triple-digit heat of the desert thousands of miles from home, American and British soldiers pay the deadly price for his braggadocio.

Shirley Palmer Woodland Hills I am absolutely disgusted that an unelected president, appointed by the Supreme Court, who dodged the draft during Vietnam (thank you, Daddy)

It's hard to do justice to "Tiny Bubbles," but the Ukulele Club of Ventura County is up to the job. The third Saturday of each month, you'll find members strumming and singing, often in Hawaiian, at the American Legion Hall in Oxnard. Muumuus and leis are de rigueur for the ladies, Aloha shirts and leis for the gents. Some wear hats. But all two dozen or so members love the tropical strains of the diminutive uke.

So, here we are in Any Big City USA. Some guy with a martyr complex, a citizen of some Middle Eastern country, slips through the airtight security surrounding actual citizens of our country, and he detonates his suitcase nuclear device. So now what, Condoleezza Rice? Now what, President Bush? Who gets the retaliation? No. 1 on the Bush administration "hit" parade? The country where the terrorist is a citizen? The country that provided him with the finances and security clearance assistance?
