There are only two races left before the Chase field is set Sept. 11 at Richmond. Here are some pertinent details to consider: Only Clint Bowyer is within one race of dropping out of the top 12, and nine drivers could clinch this week at Atlanta. Bowyer is 100 points ahead of bubble boy Jamie McMurray, and 101 ahead of Mark Martin. McMurray and Martin are in a tough spot but not an impossible one. Kasey Kahne was 90 points behind the cutoff spot for the Chase with two races to go in 2006, but he won at California and then finished third at Richmond to squeeze into the Chase.

WITH THE black waves of Boston Harbor at his back, candidate George Bush pledged that under his presidency there would be "no net loss of the nation's remaining wetlands."Bush had swooped into then-Gov. Michael Dukakis' backyard to steal the environmental vote. His green battle cry -- "no net loss" -- was the brainchild of Conservation Foundation President William K. Reilly, who became Bush's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator. And in contrast to the reversal of his "no new taxes" stand, this is a promise the president has conspicuously tried to keep.

The battle is joined.On college campuses everywhere, the fight is furious. On the one hand -- more or less the left hand, or the New Left hand -- we have the Politically Correct, in regimented rows, armed with the best of intentions and more fashionable jargon than you can shake a stick at.On the other hand is the miscellaneous band that opposes them -- many political conservatives, but also growing numbers of others, including old-line liberals, irritated students...

HOUSTON - Deep in the heart of a very red state, Houston Grand Opera has just wrapped up a production with so much sexual innuendo and anti-war sentiment that it might have warranted a look by the Justice Department. But even today's most rabid, neo-Legion of Decency types would probably have found themselves savoring Mark Adamo's new opera, Lysistrata, freely adapted from the ancient satire by Aristophanes about Athenian and Spartan women using the ultimate weapon to stop continual wars between their men. This clever, assured work marks two milestones.

Somewhere between being anointed the front-runner in the race to be Baltimore County's first black councilman and squeaking through a hard-fought campaign, Kenneth N. Oliver, according to friends and foes, went from milquetoast to militant. The same man who spent most of his time in early candidate forums explaining what a council member couldn't do about a district's problems ended up winning a six-way primary with the podium-pounding cry, "We deserve better." Now, after an easy general election, Oliver is in office, and he is playing hardball.

DON'T KNOW much about baseball, but I know this: Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa, like Roger Maris and Hank Aaron, will never hold the stature in world public opinion that Babe Ruth held.To friends and foes of this country, the Babe was the USA.The best evidence of that came on the bloody islands and atolls of the South Pacific during World War II. Enemies of America cursed the Babe in what might be called a battlefield rite."By 1943, most Japanese fighting men in Asia and the Pacific were trapped and doomed and knew it," wrote John W. Dower in his 1986 history, "War Without Mercy."

Could George Herbert Walker Bush become the Eldridge Cleaver of the '90s?Without quite using the word, the president did skirt around the new ''E'' word -- ''empowerment'' -- in his state-of-the-union address, discussing several ways to move ''power and decision-making closer to the people.''Housing Secretary Jack Kemp is to head a Cabinet panel on empowerment. A coterie of high-powered intellectuals in the White House is trying to figure out how to make ''power to the people'' the new thrust of government social programs.
