White males in America."There are a number of issues that men today, especially young men, are angry about," says Dr. Charles T. Lo Presto, 46, a clinical psychologist and assistant professor at Loyola College in Baltimore.By the year 2010, for example, white men "will be a distinct minority in the work force to people of color and women," says Dr. Lo Presto, quoting recent studies.

NEW YORK -- Bleach is not nearly as effective in killing the AIDS virus on shared needles as drug addicts have been taught, federal researchers have decided.And for the first time, federal officials suggest that addicts should have easier access to clean needles over the counter or in needle exchanges, said Dr. Harry Haverkos of the National Institute on Drug Abuse.The conclusion -- reached in February but just now making its way to many front-line groups who work with addicts -- is a blow to conventional AIDS outreach among drug users and a boost for more controversial efforts to provide new, sterile needles.

Blair Lee IV calls himself a Montgomery County militant, alternately a suburban terrorist. He writes a take-no-prisoners column for a local newspaper in which he demonizes Baltimore, William Donald Schaefer and The Sun."I'm the bad cop," he says. "My job is to scare the s out of The Baltimore Sun and William Donald Schaefer so someone else can come in and make peace. You can't make peace until you make war."His words are harsh, but he smiles broadly as he lists his arch-enemies, as if he has found in them worthy opponents who suit his purposes in more ways than one.Perhaps their most valuable role has been to help him mute the voices of his ancestors -- admirals, generals, ambassadors, senators and sundry other statesmen -- the pictures on the wall, as he once described them, men who always seemed to demand that he redeem his proud political heritage.

George Jay Gouker is a do-it-yourself kind of guy. But he was amazed at how much he had to do last week -- and how little the police helped -- to recover his stolen pickup truck.Not only did the Essex man track down the truck on his own, but when he found it last Monday night, he couldn't seem to interest the police in responding. After haggling between the Baltimore County and state police over who was responsible for the case, the truck eventually was returned and Mr. Gouker was charged a $60 towing fee, even though the truck was just out of gas.Mr.

WASHINGTON -- Nearly $2 billion worth of F-14 Tomcats -- the Navy's hottest fighter -- and six aviators have been lost since 1976 because of the plane's tendency to spin out of control, according to Navy officials.The 31 F-14 crashes are blamed on unrecoverable spins, the Navy said yesterday. Those crashes represent about one-third of all F-14 accidents, Navy officials added.The Navy said it plans to spend $78 million between now and the year 2000 to solve the spin problem.The accidents have occurred because the F-14's mechanical flight control system makes it easy for pilots to "drive the plane into a flat spin," according to a Navy statement responding to a reporter's questions.
