The following is an excerpt of a letter that appeared in Sunday's edition of the New York Daily News in response to Jason Kidd's arrest last week for DWI, shortly after signing a contract with the New York Knicks:

My name is Lenny Rosado. I am the father of 11-year-old Leandra Rosado, who was killed because of a drunken driver on Oct 11, 2009. I took my loss and fought for tougher laws against drunken driving with children in a vehicle. A bill was passed under my daughter's name. I have a message for Jason Kidd:

I always enjoyed watching you play when you were with the New Jersey Nets and Dallas, and was excited about you signing with the Knicks. But that excitement turned into a huge disappointment after seeing your recklessness when you got drunk and got into a vehicle and crashed. ... As a so-called role model to many young kids and young adults who enjoy watching you play, this has really put a dark cloud on my perception of you.

Punny HeadLINs of the Day: Speaking of which, here's a collage of every Jeremy Lin pun made by the New York Post and New York Daily News in the past two weeks.

It took the Post 14 whole days to work in the fact that he's Asian? Looks like someone's sleepLIN on the job.
