Generally speaking, I grew up among adults who told me as little as possible about sex and where babies come from.In fact, most of what I knew about the subject came from an out-of-date health manual my mother kept semi-hidden in a dining room cabinet. Behind the wine glasses.But one thing I did know as a child -- from just observing the world around me -- was this: All babies had a mother. And a father.This didn't mean I had the sexual mechanics of what happened between mothers and fathers pinned down.

What I want to know is: Why is it important to have visible stomach muscles?I grew up in an era (the Paleolithic) when people kept their stomach muscles discreetly out of sight. Most of us didn't even realize we had stomach muscles; the only people who ever actually saw them were courageous surgeons willing to cut through fat layers the thickness of the Cleveland White Pages.I'm not saying we weren't in shape; I'm just saying we had a different concept of what the shape should be. For example, our idea of a stud-muffin prototype male was somebody along the lines of George Reeves, who starred in the black-and-white TV version of "Superman," playing the role of the mild-mannered newspaper reporter Clark Kent, whom nobody ever suspected of being Superman because he disguised himself by wearing glasses.

Almost exactly 20 years ago, Barbara Dafoe Whitehead wrote a controversial essay for The Atlantic titled "Dan Quayle Was Right. " In case you forgot (or never knew), let me fill you in on what Mr. Quayle was right about. There once was a popular sitcom called "Murphy Brown. " The title character, played by Candice Bergen, was a news anchor. The show had its moments, but it was also insufferably pleased with itself and its liberalism. At least until the arrival of the Aaron Sorkin oeuvre ("The West Wing," "The Newsroom")

Robert Pastorelli plays Timmons, traveling companion to Kevin Costner in ''Dances With Wolves.'' You may have trouble recognizing him. He looks nothing like the character he plays on ''Murphy Brown,'' the television series starring Candice Bergen.He plays Elvin Barnecky, ever-present handyman to Bergen in the series, so it is only natural to assume that he is considering a spinoff featuring the same character.''No, I don't think so,'' said Pastorelli. ''I don't think I want to star in a series.

It was one of those TV images that leaps out of the clutter and burns its way into that place in the back of the brain called shared memory: Bill Clinton in Blues Brothers' sunglasses, honking away on that big tenor sax, while a million late-night bright lights danced and glistened off his golden horn. It was hot. It was symbolic. And it was resonant all right.Clinton's saxophone-playing appearance on "The Arsenio Hall Show" in June, though, was widely mocked at the time by many members of the we-know-everything gang covering national politics.
