Congratulations on another example of your extreme liberal bias when you commented on the opening of the Bush library ("Misoverestimating George W. Bush," April 28). Your hatred knows no bounds when you denigrate an individual who at the same time was being praised by two of your heroes, the former Philanderer in Chief and the current Spendthrift in Chief. What activities do you engage in when not employed by The Sun, a rapidly descending newspaper? Do you cheer at military funerals like that radical Baptist Church group or do you engage in more discreet activities like kicking the canes from under old ladies?

The crowd in attendance in Buffalo for Saturday night's  WWE  Battleground pay-per-view event were quiet for the most part, with few signs of life -- until the cameras went off the air. The WWE championship match between Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan ended with no clear winner after the Big Show KO'ed Orton, Bryan, referee John Cone and the returning referee Scott Armstrong (sent to the ring by Brad Maddox, who was left in charge)....

Fight promoter Dan Duva protested yesterday that improper scoring by one judge robbed champion Pernell Whitaker of a victory in Friday night's controversial majority draw against Julio Cesar Chavez in their World Boxing Council welterweight title bout in San Antonio.Duva sent a letter of complaint to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, which oversees boxing in the state, because judge Mickey Vann of England was quoted in Monday's edition of the London Daily Star that he "took a point away from Whitaker in the sixth round for an appalling low blow."

Painting John Unitas as a traitor to the Baltimore football cause is totally inaccurate and does him a personal injustice. It's the cheapest of shots, lacking evidence and without a sliver of credibility. He says his desire to do a favor for a friend, a former teammate, has been grossly distorted. Attempts have been made to make it appear he's selling out to another would-be National Football League expansion city. Not so.Unitas is to appear at a pep rally in Spartanburg, S.C., on Sunday, along with 16 other former NFL players.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- The Riddick Bowe-Andrew Golota rematch last night was a back-alley brawl, and once again Golota was disqualified for a low blow.This time, however, there was no riot, as there was when Golota was disqualified for low blows in the seventh round on July 11 at Madison Square Garden.Golota had knocked down Bowe twice and appeared headed for victory when he landed a left far below the belt that put Bowe down in the ninth round and led referee Eddie Cotton to disqualify Golota.

This will not sit well with many Oriole Fans. In the past, Opening Day was on the Monday after Easter Sunday. Good Friday was a solemn day for Christians to head to church. Where was the needed sensitivity that would have avoided this? What I don't want to hear is "The League, after personal deep prayer and reflection, made us do this?" Nonsense! Since when did our owner lack power behind the scene to accomplish what he wanted? Where will our loyalty be at 3 p.m. on Good Friday?

LAS VEGAS -- It was the least likely of results -- Tommy Morrison by decision over George Foreman in a fight that was supposed to match two of boxing's hardest punchers.It was an ugly, messy, mauling affair, highlighted by just a handful of exchanges and few good punches. Incredibly, neither man could hurt the other last night. At least Foreman, being fat and 44, had an excuse. Morrison, prancing around the ring to escape Foreman's pressure and punching power, won the fight on the cards but lost the crowd in the Thomas & Mack Center, who booed his every evasive move and cheered even Foreman's misses.

Retrospectives make for great entertainment. Every week, in the days leading up to the Super Bowl, we're treated to a smorgasbord of shows that want to remind us of the "Greatest Super Bowl Moments." Lynn Swann and John Stallworth leaping like ballerinas to catch Terry Bradshaw's bombs. Joe Montana zipping it to John Taylor in the back of the end zone with less than a minute left. Adam Vinatieri splitting the uprights (twice!) to give the Patriots the Lombardi Trophy. But rarely do we take the time to remember the embarrassments, the miserable failures on the big stage.

People today are saying that Gov. Parris N. Glendening's attacks on Comptroller William Donald Schaefer hit a new low in Maryland politics. Well, hardly; they barely scratch the surface. Maryland's low points have been downright subterranean. Maryland, after all, gave the nation Spiro T. Agnew, the only vice president to resign from office on charges of corruption. Agnew, elected with Richard M. Nixon in 1968 and 1972, pleaded no contest to a federal charge of income tax evasion after he was accused of taking bribes as Baltimore County executive and governor of Maryland.

The contributions of Coppin's president will be sorely missed It was with a heavy heart that I learned of Dr. Calvin Burnett's retirement after more than 30 years at Coppin State College ("Longtime Coppin president announces his retirement," Nov. 9). Under Dr. Burnett, the school has admirably weathered prejudice and adversity as it provides a unique service to this area. Coppin's mission is to provide resources to those who lack them, provide opportunity to the disadvantaged, turn struggling youths from unsupportive environments into productive, competitive members of society - in short, to bring the American dream to those deemed to have the least chance of success.

PRINCESS ANNE -- Being ranked last on the list of leading sports cities in America came as a cultural shock, a literary knockdown pitch that has upset the normally tranquil pace of this quaint and quiet community on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where spectacular fields of corn stretch to infinity and even unannounced visitors from the big city are welcomed as if they're home folks.Princess Anne feels as if it took a belittling brush from The Sporting News, which history tells us is the nation's oldest publication dealing with fun, games and box scores.
