John Mackey was quite simply the greatest tight end in NFL history, and the Baltimore Colts were America's team before there was an America's Team. I hope Mackey and Johnny U. are having a great game of catch in Heaven. God bless him and his entire family. Don Doby

Since this is the height of vacation season and everyone's walking around with a camera and snapping pictures, it's a good time to address something that's ticked me off for years. And that is: People who don't say "1 ... 2 ... 3" before they take your picture. In other words, people who snap your picture without any kind of cue or heads-up. What is the deal with these people? Here we have a long, proud history in this country of not actually snapping a picture until you say "1 ... 2 ... 3."

MOBILE, Ala. - There won't be any witnesses here. No memories of the howling winds or bending trees, no visions of the flooding, the destruction, the deaths or whatever else they imagine. Hurricane Ivan arrived in southern Alabama last night. That was clear from the television reports, and from the invisible beasts that rattled the metal doors. But the people who most respected Ivan's power - those who followed officials' advice and fled to the concrete-walled safety of the city's high schools and hospitals - will remember only the communal sounds and smells of shelter life, and always the cold, hard floor.
