John Entwistle,57, the bassist for the rock band The Who, was found dead yesterday in his Las Vegas hotel room, according to MCA Records officials and the Clark County Coroner's Office. The cause of death was a heart attack, Clark County fire spokesman Bob Leinbach said. Mr. Entwistle's stoical stage presence was a stark contrast to the antics of lead guitarist Pete Townshend and lead singer Roger Daltrey. Robert Rosenberg, manager of The Who, said he was "saddened and shocked" by Mr. Entwistle's death.

LAS VEGAS - At his murder trial in September, Michael Kane was described as dangerous, a schizophrenic who would require medication and supervision for years to come. That testimony came from a psychologist hired by the defense. The prosecution did not dispute it. In fact, the psychiatric expert hired by the state agreed that Kane was mentally ill and probably had been psychotic - disconnected from reality - when he jumped on a friend without provocation and stabbed him. The jury found Kane not guilty by reason of insanity; he was sent to a psychiatric hospital.

LONDON - If you think the insults have been flying fast, hard and low between the Bush and Kerry campaigns, read the political "discourse" sent from Americans to British citizens who dared contact them with opinions on the presidential election. "Real Americans aren't interested in your [bleeping], tea-sipping opinions," read one note. "If you want to save the world, begin with your own worthless corner of it." And then there was this: "We don't need [blankety-blank blanks] meddling in our presidential election.

BRITAIN'S THE GUARDIAN newspaper, formerly of Manchester, now of London, has been a part of my life practically since I was old enough to read. My father subscribed to the newspaper's international airmail edition and would derive great succor from its leftist inclinations. When I joined The Sun as a reporter in 1969, my great dream was to become a foreign correspondent. Coincidentally, The Sun's impressive adventure in reporting from overseas began in London in 1924 with an office next to what was then called The Manchester Guardian at 40 Fleet St. The Guardian had a great influence on The Sun reporting from London.

WOULD A SCHOOL board adopt a policy knowing full well that it would make the board a national laughingstock?We wondered that recently when the Clark County (Las Vegas), Nev., school board eliminated traditional letter grades on report cards and replaced them with words such as "emerging" and "extending."Clark County students who used to get D's and F's are now characterized as "emerging."

Joe Williams, 80, whose smooth baritone and collaborations with Count Basie won him acclaim as one of the great voices of jazz, collapsed and died on a Las Vegas city street Monday. He apparently died of natural causes, the Clark County coroner said. Mr. Williams became a sensation in 1955 when he recorded "Everyday I Have the Blues" with Count Basie, and the two were together for seven years. He repeatedly was chosen the top male jazz singer in readers' polls for Downbeat and other magazines.

George Kunz should have slowed by now. At 66, the former All-Pro tackle should be golfing or fishing or appearing at autograph shows, a battle-scarred old Colt telling tales about his time in the NFL trenches. Not Kunz. He's an attorney, all 6 feet 5 and 255 pounds of him, just three years out of law school and determined to make this career as estimable as his first. A Colt from 1975 through 1980, he anchored the offensive line and helped Baltimore win three straight AFC East championships.

LAS VEGAS -- O.J. Simpson, who had spent three days in jail, was released from jail yesterday after posting $125,000 bail. A Nevada judge set bail yesterday for the former football star on charges stemming from Simpson's confrontation last week with collectors of sports memorabilia. The defense and prosecution agreed to the bail amount, which was confirmed at a brief hearing before Justice Court Judge Joseph Bonaventure. Simpson, who was released in the early afternoon, had been held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center.
