April 18, 1961: Talk about versatility. Today, Jim Murray writes about riding to hounds: “Here in Southern California, the traditions are being carried on by the West Hills Hunt Club, a doughty band of cavaliers who persevere against great odds. For one thing, the West Coast fox is an inferior being, little bigger than a common rodent, who has the rotten sportsmanship to climb trees to get away. For another, the coyotes substituted for the fox are too damn smart.”
