Re: “The 'Babe Bracket' is no more, at least in title UPDATE

Max, I thought you did a great job. You disarmed these guys by not being the ogre they expected, although I think they know you well enough not to have expected a fire-breathing monster. Tommy and David are amiable, but David seemed the most stung by the criticism. What these guys do not understand is that the corrosive impact is not on the personalities who are allowed to participate but on the mass of women who, if the hear about this contest, find it offensive. David and Tommy said the contest is not just about looks, but it is. I watch ESPN some, especially at the gym, and I do not like how ESPN has tarted up some of the smart, knowledgeable women on the network.

Re: “Stodola defends his carryover fund

You got it just right: "Nobody is covered with glory here." And the ordinance should be repealed.

Re: “Football: Man's work y'all. Right?

Wally wants the next coach picked in one of the five or six different ways the last five or six coaches have been picked because all those picks were good. "Oblivioiusly." Or maybe "obvioiusly." Spell check, Wally.

Re: “Death reported of Robert Johnston, former legislator and homeless advocate

For a number of years Robert has been a member of a book club I am in. When I sent an e-mail to the club membership about Robert's death, a member spoke for all of us when he wrote, "I cannot imagine the book club without Robert." I cannot imagine the world without Robert. Is there any way to print your very nice homage to Robert.

Re: “Mother Jones on the fallibility of forensic science, and efforts by AG Sessions to halt reform

I used fire analysis experts in a number of lawsuits. Several years ago the methods used by the experts were called into question, most prominently in the case of a father executed after he allegedly set a fire in which his three daughters died. The author of a long article in The New Yorker concluded that the man was wrongly convicted.

Re: “Clintons get closer look

I will content myself with disliking the first four comments and congratulating Gene Lyons on another incisive, informative column. I thought I had missed the Tomasky review, but when I checked NYRB, I saw that it is in the June 25 issue, which might be in a stack of mail but certainly is online. I am reading it now.

Re: “Huckabee laments 'F-bomb' use by women in New York

I will not pay for his new book, but I scan parts of it when I'm at Barnes & Noble. How can a man who titles a chapter in a book "Bend Over and Take It Like a Prisoner!" complain about anyone else's potty mouth?
