Off the track

Your lack of coverage of the USC-UCLA track meet was disgusting. It is a major event in Southern California, the greatest dual meet in the country with a storied history of Olympic champions, and you put it in the miscellaneous section of Newswire. Beach volleyball got one-third of a page.

Had this been a USC-UCLA football game it would have gotten two pages with interviews from the waterboy. At least with the Olympics a few months away, you could give the second most popular sport in the world some respect.
