Re "Cedars, UCLA cut from L.A. health plan," Sept. 21 Before my retirement, I was an attending physician at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for more than 30 years. I took care of hundreds of Medicare and Medi-Cal patients. I can count on one hand the number of celebrities I cared for. Cedars is a nearly 1,000-bed hospital occupied mostly by regular patients. It is expensive because it strives for the best treatment, does invaluable research, teaches physicians and is often not paid for the care it provides.

Howland called the Ducks a tough matchup because of their quick, guard-heavy lineup that mostly plays zone defense.

If all philanthropists were required to be morally upright, hospitals would be low on new wings and colleges would be starved for buildings. We'd also be missing a few beloved institutions outright — Stanford and Carnegie Mellon universities are cases in point. Charity is a virtue that should not be off-limits to scoundrels — if, in fact, they are truly giving to an institution rather than tethering their donations with strings that benefit them. Lowell Milken would probably be counted among the less pristine philanthropists, though not among the most scurrilous.

USC 17, UCLA 7 Nov. 20, 1999, at the Coliseum Setup: For only the fourth time in the history of the series and the first time since 1941, USC (4-6) and UCLA (4-6) both came into the game with losing records. Both teams were also without their top quarterbacks -- the Trojans' Carson Palmer and the Bruins' Cory Paus -- because of broken collarbones. Although UCLA had an eight-game winning streak in the series that was the longest in the history of the rivalry, USC tailback Chad Morton guaranteed a victory over the Bruins -- in August.
