Mussorgsky's opera, "Boris Godunov," is set in Russia during "The Time of Troubles" -- the period at the turn of the 17th century when that huge country was visited by famine, plague and beset by problems of political disintegration. If it sounds like Russia today, it also sounds like that great country at almost every moment in its tragic history. The time is always ripe for a production of "Boris."Mussorgsky's 1874 opera is based closely on Alexander Pushkin's 1825 verse play, itself modeled on Shakespeare's historical tragedies, particularly "Macbeth."

Just as Boris N. Yeltsin's career was taking off - his first career, that is, as a Communist Party functionary - he received an order from Moscow that would tie him, however indirectly, to the one great crime that overshadowed all of Soviet history. Czar Nicholas II and his family had been murdered by their Bolshevik captors in the Ural Mountain city of Yekaterinburg, back on the night of July 16, 1918, and 59 years later, Mr. Yeltsin was ordered to destroy the house where that had happened.

TANEYTOWN POLICE Department has a new member, a native of the Czech Republic who goes by the name Boris. His hair is longer than regulation length, and he has more of it than anyone on the force. But no one is complaining. Boris is the force's new canine. "He likes kids and any kind of attention he can get," said Officer Dustin Black, Boris' handler. Black said Boris is from a kennel in St. Mary's County. About the time that Black joined the force in May, the department's previous canine was 9 years old and ready to retire, said Lt. Greg Woefel.

The arrival of towering German center Boris Beck at Broadneck this season predictably raised eyebrows in Anne Arundel County, where athletic transfers long have been a sore point.Perhaps just as predictable, however, is that Beck -- a Fullbright exchange student and no basketball import -- has not been a major factor for the Bruins.Beck, at 7 feet 2 the tallest county player ever, has found the transition to American basketball difficult."The adjustment for Boris has been in understanding just how intense the game is in the U.S.," said Bruins coach Ken Kazmarek.

Dear Masha, I just read that my government is airlifting 16 million pre-packaged army-surplus meals to the former Soviet Union, and I started thinking about a meal you fed us last summer, and I felt like apologizing.It was a warm July afternoon at the little cottage in Iksha where you were staying for the summer. We caught the electrichka from Savelevsky station, crowded as always on Saturday with Muscovites fleeing the city, wearing canvas rucksacks and bending over the day's issue of Nezavisimaya Gazeta.

During the presidential campaign, American voters seemed united in at least one thing: Foreign affairs were not a central issue. Unfortunately, rapid, destabilizing changes abroad, especially in the successor states of the Soviet empire, do not give us the luxury of adopting "splendid isolation."As Robert Strauss, the U.S. ambassador to Russia, said this month, should democratic governments in Eastern Europe, especially in Russia, fail to sink strong roots, the resulting chaos would soon enough have a drastic domestic impact in the United States.

And the chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, called the nine years of Yeltsin's leadership "a breath of freedom for the country" and "his biggest achievement."

Almost six years after a U.S. senator moved by the tale of a lost dog introduced legislation to safeguard pets on airplanes, the "Boris Bill" is set to be unleashed. Beginning early next week, the Safe Air Travel for Animals Act will require the first public reports from airlines on pets that are lost, injured or killed on their planes so passengers can make informed decisions about booking travel with a four-legged companion. Industry officials say monthly reports to the U.S. Department of Transportation are unnecessary because animals are rarely hurt or lost, although no one knows how rare.
