Too much focus on sports, too little on studies

-A A +A

Allow me briefly to respond to the most erudite column of the honorable Gerald Largen in your paper of Aug. 9.

I consider Mr. Largen to be a friend for whom I was permitted to write historical columns, from about 1993 to the phasing out of The Standard in late 1996.

It was a great learning experience for me for which I will always be grateful to him.

Mr. Largen is a wordsmith without peer and well versed in many fields of endeavor of which sports is an exception.
