In a series of mistakes described as a "Swiss cheese" event by hospital officials, a patient recently admitted to Olive View- UCLA Medical Center was not assigned a doctor for two days. The patient was admitted to the Los Angeles County teaching hospital in Sylmar by an emergency room medical student, who filled out the admitting paperwork incorrectly despite help from an attending physician in the emergency room. Although a doctor's name was placed on the paperwork, the doctor was never called about the assignment, according to a memo by Dr. Mark Richman, who said he was the attending physician who helped the student with the paperwork.

Regarding the comment of Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley, saying that the jurors who acquitted actor Robert Blake of the murder of his wife are "incredibly stupid" (March 24), I think that the district attorney is "incredibly stupid" for two reasons. He never should have brought the case to trial with the flimsy evidence that he had. The trial wasted millions of dollars of taxpayers' money, and for what? He just lost the support of many of his previous supporters, including myself, with his comment about the jurors.

One measure of how far tailgating has come is that it rarely involves an actual tailgate these days. Even those fans who drive trucks to the game typically set up folding picnic tables or other buffet surfaces, the better to accommodate the entrees, salads, snacks, booze and bubble water necessary to prepare the modern-day enthusiast for 60 minutes of football.

On Thursday, Virginia prisoner Daryl Renard Atkins achieved that status reserved for a few people with uncommon diseases and unprecedented Supreme Court cases: He became a term unto himself, like Graves' disease and Miranda rights. Reversing a 13-year-old case, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Atkins vs. Virginia that it was unconstitutional to execute a "mentally retarded" person.
