On Jan. 4, the date of the Orange Bowl game featuring the Mountaineers, except for the Sports on TV listing, there was not one word about the game in the Sports section. Come on, it's a BCS game!

Regarding the graphic that accompanied the Nov. 4 article entitled "Great Divide": What a dubious distinction for West Virginia to be the only state not to have its electors represented on the front cover of The Post's election page. Perhaps its "Wild and Wonderful" reputation has caught up with it. Benjamin Somers , Washington
