Almost a third of a century has passed since Robert F. Kennedy's assassination, yet he remains a compelling, controversial public figure -- strangely a mysterious one to some people. And that's after he has been the subject of 21 or more books and figured prominently in at least 82 more. For many of us who knew him well, the mystery is that there's a mystery. The record is clear. Look long and hard at what he did. Read or listen to what he said. No need to psychoanalyze him. The real Bob Kennedy is right there.

Reading Time: Two Minutes.Would it be too cruel to suggest that heavyweight Peter McNeeley lived up to his nickname "Hurricane" all right, Hurricane Felix?* In his heyday, Mickey Mantle wasn't the most cooperative ballplayer in the Yankees' clubhouse, often spending about an hour in the trainer's room after a ballgame. Later on, however, even as a man of few words, he could deliver a wry gem.It's the third game of the 1964 World Series, the 12th and last Der Mick would take part in and the Yankees and Cardinals are vTC tied, 1-1, entering the last of the ninth in Yankee Stadium.

BOSTON -- As old Robert F. Kennedy relatives, friends and supporters gathered here at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library to observe the 25th anniversary of his death this weekend, the inevitable what-might-have-beens were heard.Some were obvious. Had he lived and been elected president in 1968, as one panelist put it, "there would have been no burglar tools in the White House" in the Watergate scandal four years later. Richard Nixon as president and his vice president, Spiro Agnew, would not have been forced to resign in disgrace in the country's most corrupt period.

FAIRFAX, Va. -- Call him Bob, call him Kennedy, call him a kid from the heartland.Just don't call him America's distance running hope.Bob Kennedy was in diapers in 1972, when the United States produced the Olympic champions in the marathon, Frank Shorter, and 800 meters, Dave Wottle. The United States has since been a third-world country in races longer than the 400, but Kennedy took strides toward alleviating that shortcoming last summer.A 24-year-old from Indiana who ranked fourth in the world in the 5,000 in 1994, Kennedy showed yesterday that he has little competition stateside at shorter distances, winning the 3,000 at the Mobil Invitational in 7 minutes, 45.34 seconds, a meet record and the fastest time by an American this year.

Letters, calls and the roar of the crowd:John P. Burke, Baltimore: I have been reading the Sunpapers for 75 years and why they haven't waved "bye-bye" to you is a mystery to me.You are a classic "cheap shot" artist. A good example was your column when you wrote "how can I be sure the money will go for the [national] debt and not to pay for jelly doughnuts for Ted Kennedy?"With all the stealing, lying characters in our government, you had to pick on Kennedy.I guess you don't know anything about those "beauts" Nixon and Agnew.

Olympic Trials Wednesday in New Orleans, he will be one of 36 hopefuls for three positions on the U.S. team.And he'll try not to think about what could have been.Tendinitis in his right knee has hampered the former Glenelg High School runner's training and forced him out of his best event -- the 10,000 meters."It's something that only rest will cure, but I can't afford to rest now," said Scherer, who is 25. "Hopefully I can survive this coming week and then rest it some before the Olympics.

Rainy conditions made for a sloppy game, but Glenelg's players were pleased with a 7-5 boys lacrosse victory over visiting North Carroll yesterday. "North Carroll is a much-improved team with a good goalkeeper," Glenelg coach Rick Kincaid said. Kincaid said Glenelg's slightly superior stickwork and solid defense provided the winning edge. The Gladiators improved their record to 2-0 while North Carroll dropped to 1-1. "At the beginning of the season, we were worried about our defense because we lost so much, but it is playing well," Kincaid said.
