Enough with the BSA-bashing in The Times. (The Nov. 22) headline screaming "Scouts Miss Food Drive Goal; Group Collects Over 400,000 Cans, But Was Hoping for 1 Million" was the ultimate. Whether the headline--which had nothing to do with the leading paragraphs, supposedly the main idea of the story--was simply further evidence of your apparent commitment to tear down any shred of human decency that may be left in our society (reference "Charities Fear All to Be Hurt by Bad Publicity" in the same section)

Last May, Granada Hills High eliminated Venice with an emotional victory in the City section 4-A boys' volleyball quarterfinals. Much has changed since then. Granada Hills graduated four key players, and standout Mike Whitmore transferred to Kennedy. And on Wednesday, the Highlanders also lost a nonleague rematch with Venice, 15-8, 15-7, 15-8.

Michael Chang's success in the French Open galls John McEnroe, who complained Wednesday that young tennis players are "getting away with murder" when they beat the established stars. "I'd like to start a committee of veteran players to put these others in their place," McEnroe said. McEnroe, 30, made his remarks at the Beckenham grass court championships as rain delayed his scheduled match. He is using the event to prepare for Wimbledon, where he will be making a bid for his fourth title.

The environment, more like a scrimmage than a match, was eerily quiet, perhaps because Cal State Northridge fans weren't sure what to expect.
