Late last year, I attended a conference on blogging - the first of its kind that I know of - and the closing keynote speaker was Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks. Cuban is a versatile guy. A businessman extraordinaire, he has made billions in computer/digital/information technology. A rabid sports fan, he owns a fairly successful sports franchise. Being light on his feet, he did better than OK on Dancing with the Stars. And with a keen appreciation for the information free range the Internet has become, he's a celebrity blogger (blogmaverick.

I enjoyed Fred L. Pincus' commentary, "We cannot give in to bigotry" (May 30). In his second paragraph he stated that "after seeing two young black men walking toward me" he asked the question, "should I have crossed the street?" He chose to keep walking toward them and to be politically correct - and then robbed with a gun held to his head. While he says he has taught his students there is a grain of truth in racial stereotypes, he did not follow his own gut feeling to avoid the possible problem by crossing the street.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's controversial comments about walking across the street if he saw a young black man wearing a hoodie coming toward him late at night got me to thinking about an experience I had 30 years ago. One night while walking from my Charles Village home to my car, I noticed two young black men walking toward me. It was very dark since the street light had blown out. Should I cross the street? I asked myself, concluding that such a move would be racist since they had just as much right to the sidewalk as I did. I continued walking.

NBA playoffs Mavericks@Hornets 7 p.m. [TNT] Bloggers across the country, mad at the Mavs' anti-blogger owner, Mark Cuban, will be rooting hard for the Hornets to wrap it up.

Will the Mavericks be able to recover from losing three straight to the Heat? The only individuals who can answer this question are the whistle-happy game officials. Mark Cuban may not make it to the second quarter before he gets tossed. Bill Paschak Woodstock I guarantee it. The NBA will make sure there is a Game 7. But don't be surprised if the refs get their revenge on Mavs owner Mark Cuban in the final game and hand the victory to the Heat with some questionable calls. Jeff Mariner Phoenix Perhaps.

NEW YORK -- Less than a month after sharply breaking with CBS, former anchor Dan Rather has signed a deal to produce a weekly news program for HDNet, a high-definition channel co-founded by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. When Dan Rather Reports debuts in October, the longtime newsman will have free rein to explore any topic that interests him, said Colette Carey, a spokeswoman for the network. The hourly program will include "hard-edged field reports," interviews and investigative pieces and will be "completely uncensored," according to the channel's news release.
