If you were running a horse in the Preakness, which jockey would you want to ride him? Jim Palmer - no one has ever been a more genuine embodiment of what jockeys are all about. Chris R Buchar Baltimore I would pick Ron Franklin in a comeback bid. In 1979, he won the Preadness and Kentucky Derby, but lost the Belmont aboard Spectacular Bid. He's 45 years old and still excercises horses. David Boyd White Hall

I belong to the SECU credit union, and quite frankly I'm disgusted that it will pay Towson University $4.75 million over the next 10 years to have the university's new basketball facility called SECU Arena (" Towson gets $4.75 million from SECU for arena naming rights," July 31). It appears that the SECU got too big for its britches (it has $2.6 billion in assets) and was looking for a place to throw its money away. Why weren't the members of the credit union given a vote before this decision was made?

I'm pleased to see The Sun revealing the charges by Maryland hospitals to patients. The differences are astounding. ("Costs vary for same treatment," May 9). Recently, I spent three days and two nights at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center for an allergic reaction I had to an antibiotic given to me for a viral infection. I couldn't believe the amount charged for such a short stay. My bill, $4,745, was astounding. Although Medicare and Blue Cross/Blue Shield paid most of it, I still had to pay for some of the charges.

THE QUESTION The year is half over; what are your favorite movies so far and why? WHAT YOU SAY Favorite movies: Capote for its almost unparalleled acting. And Akeelah and the Bee is exceptional for its broad area of interest. Children can identify with it for its healthy competitive nature, and adults appreciate it for its helpful message: The contestants are honest and possess fine character traits. And it was like an old-fashioned sing-a-long; I couldn't avoid spelling along with them; although I missed most of them.

Good morning --Jerry Hairston-- A classy move to be at Elrod Hendricks' memorial service even though you're no longer an Oriole Question of the day Do you agree with the Ravens' decision to bring back Brian Billick? I've been saying for months that Billick deserves to come back and fix this mess. A lot of things have to change - both in training camp and in the locker room. But can Brian re- invent himself? Can a leopard change his spots? Aye, that's the rub. ... Fran Vojik Glen Burnie You mean owner Steve Bisciotti's decision.

Sports writer Mike Preston 's criticism of fired Ravens coach Cam Cameron was caustic and unfair ("Harbaugh now has no shield from critics, Flacco has no excuses," Dec. 11). Mr. Cameron didn't drop the ball that would have been a touchdown in a game last season that very likely would have sent us to the Super Bowl. And Mr. Cameron didn't miss the kick that might have sent us there as well. Also, he had nothing to do with our special teams let-down when the Redsklns returned the ball 64 yards at a critical phase of last Sunday's thriller.

ON THE evening of Aug. 21, while strolling outside his White Hall home, David Boyd first gained intimate knowledge of Rob Shifflet and his machine gun. Boyd is a retired college professor. Shifflet is the owner of a Parkville gun shop called the Christian Soldier. If Jesus returned today, would he feel the need to pack heat? Shifflet thinks such a question is impertinent. He named his gun shop after his religious beliefs and points his guns for what he maintains are his constitutional beliefs, even if people in the vicinity take frightened exception.
