In a single issue of Calendar, Phil Davis dissed Star 98.7's Jamie and Danny for indecency on morning radio ('You Can Say That-and Worse," April 8) while Paul Brownfield dissed NBC's "Ed" for excessive decency on network TV ('Browse the Store, Try the Show"). Boy, this is one tough town. If Davis and Brownfield compared notes, they might discover that "Ed" is such a favorite of Jamie White's that she recently constructed one of her show's segments around a plot line from the previous night's episode: whether it's ethical and/or useful to hire someone to seduce a spouse you don't trust.

Olympic gold medalist Tommie Smith says the punishment--this time--is just. Smith, who was banished from the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City for raising a gloved fist for Black power, has now been barred from coaching the Santa Monica College track team for one year for putting an ineligible student-athlete into competition. "I think the college has handled it the right way," Smith said. "It was the wrong thing to do and I got caught."
