Saturday's Letters to the Editor

Earning it

EDITOR: Thanks to Lowell Cohn for his column praising the Oakland Athletics ("With power, pitching, drama, storybook A's bring excitement back to Coliseum," Thursday).

I grew up a San Francisco Giants fan in the 1960s, but I've been an A's fan ever since they won the World Series three times in a row, and I've never regretted it. I confess to being a true believer in Billyball. As they say in the movie "Moneyball," the A's are like the island of misfit toys, and I love how they overachieve.

Anyone with money can buy a good team, but the A's do it the old-fashioned way. They earn it.

Fourth of July concert

EDITOR: Here's a big thank you to the Sebastopol Community Band for the wonderful Fourth of July concert in Ives Park. What a pleasure to celebrate our country's birthday with our neighbor's in such a beautiful way.
