I told my teammates to continue playing with an underdog mentality. If we think of ourselves as favorites [this season], we might lose our focus.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

After all, was Timothy McVeigh a Muslim? – Jack McMahon Re “Justices consider taking serious look at Second Amendment” (Daily Briefing, Nov. 11): In the Monday daily briefing, you make reference to the Supreme Court revisiting the wording of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. The problem is not the wording of the Second Amendment but that the Second Amendment is still part of the Constitution. The Jefferson Memorial includes quotes by Thomas Jefferson, one of which is “I am not an advocate of frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of humankind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened … institutions must advance also, and keep pace with the times.” When is humankind in America going to become enlightened enough to join almost all of the other democracies and remove the right of the citizens to bear arms unless licensed and strictly controlled? – Paul Hutchinson Van Nuys Word ban Re “Council calls for halt to slur” (Nov. 10): Now I’ve seen it all. Does the L.A. City Council have nothing better to do? Placing a “moratorium” on a word has got to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. All it does is bestow more importance on the word than it previously held. Instead of chopping away at our civil liberties by banning – albeit symbolically – our freedom of speech, why don’t the council members do something really constructive like imposing a moratorium on – oh, I don’t know – gang violence? Who knows, maybe the symbolic gesture will do more than they’ve done up until now. – Donna Connolly Sherman Oaks Uncaring council Re “Alarcón responds” (Your Opinions, Nov. 8): It is really a shame that other council members have a say-so in the future of Sylmar. We need to return the favor when they need our councilman’s support in a project that will have a negative effect on their community. The current parking at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center is a disaster, so what will happen when the facility is expanded? Hope you are happy with what you did to our community, Wendy Greuel, Tony Cardenas, Bernard Parks, Jan Perry and Greig Smith. What interest do these council members have in our community? Remember, voters in their communities, when you need our help, you can blame it on these individuals. We should continue the impact study to show those council people what they did to our community, and then I hope they sleep well at night thinking what they did to us. – Frank Jacobs Sylmar Cleaning up Re “Not-so-clean” (Your Opinions, Nov. 11): We and our neighbors try to pick up the trash we find lying around on our street. A couple of weeks ago, we found a pile of tissue papers, obviously left there by a sex-crazed couple who parked their car there the night before. I dreaded the idea of having to clean up that trash, and I hoped that the wind would carry it elsewhere. The next time I checked, the trash was cleaned up. My nice neighbor lady took care of it. – Lani Bowen Woodland Hills Peaceful? Re “Can Latino intifada be far behind?” (Their Opinions, Nov. 8): Andres Oppenheimer’s article makes it sound as if illegal Latinos are threatening legal citizens. It translates into: Give us what we want, or else. That doesn’t sound like the words or thoughts of a people who want to be accepted peacefully into a foreign society. – Marilyn Dalrymple Lancaster160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
