Jillian Michaels didn't think she had another weight-loss book in her. She'd already written several, including "Master Your Metabolism," "Winning by Losing" and "Making the Cut. " What else was there to say? Plenty, as it turns out. Her latest book is "Slim for Life," and it represents Michaels' most accessible approach to health and fitness. Not exactly what you might expect from the star of NBC's "The Biggest Loser," known for ripped abs and a no-excuses, take-no-prisoners approach to diet and exercise.

Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker dominate no matter the format. Phil Mickelson wins no matter whom he has for a partner. It still isn't enough for the Americans to shake the pesky International team in the Presidents Cup. For the second straight day, the Americans were poised to take a comfortable lead. The International team just won't go away. It rallied to win two late matches to split the fourballs session and keep the Americans' lead at one point, 6 1/2 to 5 1/2 . Ernie Els and Mike Weir won the final three holes to turn defeat into a two-up victory, thanks to the Canadian hitting three-wood from the base of the bleachers and onto the green for an eagle that was conceded.

In your May 4 article, "Michael Huffington Wins Few Allies in Congress, Is Proud of It," your reporter describes GOP Senate candidate Rep. Michael Huffington's record in Congress as "razor thin" and "slim." But in the third paragraph, it says that he "refused to pursue all but a few federal projects for his Santa Barbara-area district, called for elimination one of the two committees of which he is a member and frequently criticized his colleagues for excessive spending." I've got news for you--refusing to vote yourself pork-barrel projects is not the same as not compiling a good record.

In most professions, success is simply determined by superb function of basic fundamentals. Perhaps spring training would be the ideal time and place for the Dodgers to learn such fundamentals. Going to spring training in playing shape may also have its advantages. Is there a chance of catching the Astros? Slim and none, and slim is dead. Goodby, good night and good luck next year. Hey, Campanis, structure salaries based on performance and deduct heavily for mistakes in basic fundamentals.
