LOS ANGELES -- For Samantha Stevens, the perky housewife-witch on TV's "Bewitched," coming out of the closet would have been a one-second affair. With a twitch of her nose, she would have been home free.For actor Dick Sargent, who played Samantha's husband, Darren, from 1969-72, it has taken four decades."I wish I had come out sooner," says Sargent, 61, who publicly declared himself gay on National Coming Out Day two weeks ago. "I've been hiding my whole life, and I realized, dammit, it was just time to stop."

With Alex Len's decision to leave Maryland after two years for the NBA, it's interesting to see how other former Terps fared when making similar decisions. The majority never amounted to the kind of stars they might have become had they remained in College Park. Brad Davis was the first Terp to leave early, after his junior year in 1977. A first-round draft choice of the Los Angeles Lakers (No. 15 overall), Davis took a few years to get his NBA career on track. After bouncing between the NBA and the CBA, Davis stuck with the expansion Dallas Mavericks in 1980 and 11 seasons later ended his career as the first player in franchise history to have his jersey retired.

DANA DAVIS PROUDLY displays the proclamation his grandfather, Charles "Doc" Davis, received from College Park officials at halftime of a Maryland football game in November 1979 declaring him the Terps' most "loyal and dedicated" fan. He brushes the dust off a football signed by Terps coach Jerry Claiborne and the rest of the team. Davis spent a lot of time with his grandfather, a three-term mayor of College Park and a multi-sport season-ticket holder at Maryland since 1930. He accompanied him to Byrd Stadium to watch Randy White and Mark Manges and to Cole Field House to see Brad Davis and John Lucas.

Today's animal topic is: Cat Care.Over the years, many cat lovers have asked me: "Dave, how come you never write about cats? Is it because you don't like cats? Is it because cats are vicious unprincipled household parasites that will stroll up to the person who has fed them for 17 years and, without provocation, claw this person's shin flesh into lasagna? Is it because they are lazy, ungrateful, hairball-spewing . . . Hey! These aren't cat-lover quotations! You're making these quotations up!"

ATLANTA - Brad Davis is getting $1,850 back from the Internal Revenue Service, more than double his refund from the prior year. While computers, TVs and appliances may be had with that amount, Davis isn't buying. "I'm just going to sit on it," said the 35-year-old Atlanta resident. Davis lost his job in January as a sales representative for a maker of commercial skin-care products. The refund and severance are enough to tide him through May, he said. Refunds are up 17 percent, or $74 billion, so far this year as Americans submit income tax forms showing households paid more in advance than they owed.

Los Angeles -- Everyone acted calm and sympathetic when Burt Pearl, a television writer, pulled aside each of his 13 office mates at Columbia Pictures to tell them he had tested positive for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.After all, this is Hollywood, where being sensitive to the AIDS issue has become vogue, like being seen at star-studded galas that have raised millions of dollars for the cause.But as Mr. Pearl learned, the public spectacle doesn't always match the private truth. Colleagues stopped hanging out on the couch near his desk.
