BATON ROUGE -- John B. Breaux, friend of Bill Clinton, ally of Louisiana's energy industry and the senator who figures to broker the deal that will save the president's energy tax, couldn't resist invoking the Kingfish.Pointing from a window in his 20th-floor office to Huey Long's statue on the state Capitol grounds, Mr. Breaux noted that the legendary governor is buried beneath the monument and that his likeness faces the state house to make sure the legislators "don't screw up."Mr. Breaux predicted that after the Senate Finance Committee votes on the tax bill later this month, "I'm going to be buried right next to him -- facing down into the ground."

Consider this a sign of Towson University's depth at wide receiver: On the night it lost promising Hakeem Moore, it found unstoppable Tommy Breaux. Breaux, a 6-foot-9 basketball center for the Tigers, made his college football debut last night at Johnny Unitas Stadium with seven catches - some of them acrobatic, all of them clutch - for 109 yards. The Tigers cashed in a 20-10 victory over Central Connecticut State that was typical of a season opener: There were as many cramps as there were mistakes on a humid evening.

WASHINGTON - Sen. John B. Breaux of Louisiana, a rare centrist Democrat in an increasingly polarized Congress, announced yesterday that he would not seek re-election next year. That makes Breaux the fifth Southern Democrat to step down in 2004 rather than run again in a region that has been increasingly inhospitable to his party. Breaux would have been a shoo-in for re-election, and his decision to forgo a fourth term complicates Democrats' efforts to capture control of the Senate. Republicans now hold a 51-48 majority, with one Democrat-leaning independent.

Courtney Ward and Jira Williams had big plans for their senior basketball season. Ward, a feisty 5-foot-3 guard, and Williams, a strong 5-foot-10 forward, wanted to help their team win a state basketball championship. Tomorrow, the best friends will have their chance, as New Town heads into the Class 1A state semifinals at UMBC. But this isn't quite what Ward and Williams had anticipated. They weren't supposed to be playing at New Town. They were supposed to be playing at Eleanor McMain High School in New Orleans.

The phrase "heated sibling rivalry" does not apply to the Breaux household, where two multisport athletes squeeze their large bodies and egos into the same bedroom. Randallstown High's 6-foot-8 Thomas and 6-4 Terrance Breaux share everything from a cellular phone to PlayStation with few problems, and say they're comfortable with similar levels of untidiness in their bedroom. "They have a tremendous relationship on and off of the court, and I've never seen them argue," said eighth-year Rams basketball coach Kim Rivers.

WASHINGTON - Rep. Billy Tauzin and Sen. John B. Breaux commiserated on the telephone recently, two Louisiana politicians considering what their lives would be like now that they won't be part of the new Congress convening today on Capitol Hill. The question wasn't where they'd live or what hobby they'd take up after retiring from their powerful posts. It was which multimillion-dollar offers from law firms, lobbying shops or trade groups they would accept. "It's been kind of exciting and at the same time kind of a little traumatic," Tauzin said in an interview on the day last month that he was announced as the new head of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA)

Smoking ban backers unfairly restrict others Not only do health fascists like Mark E. Breaux ("Smoke ban doesn't hurt Howard's businesses," May 27) know all about your health and what's good for you, they know all about business and can read minds. Isn't that reassuring? He claims that because the parking lot at Macaroni's Grill is full, therefore (1) people go to restaurants to eat, not smoke, and (2) smoking restrictions cannot be the cause of a restaurant's failure. Besides committing the logical "fallacy of composition," this assumes Mr. Breaux can read eaters' minds and knows no one wants to light up after dinner.

WASHINGTON -- With its fate possibly on the line, the commission that was entrusted to save Medicare from insolvency will meet today under mounting pressure to accept reforms that would subject the program to competition from private health care plans.Though the woes of the Social Security system have grabbed more headlines, Medicare is in more imminent danger, and the solutions to its financial crisis are almost certainly more difficult. The commission is supposed to complete its recommendations by Monday, and today's meeting to hash out the details of a reform proposal could be pivotal.
