ATLANTA -- No one gets off the hook, not the big-mouthed sprinters, not their blockheaded coaches, not even the man getting the last laugh, Carl Lewis.Maybe the United States would have won the men's 4 x 100-meter relay if Lewis had run last night, but that's almost besides the point.If Lewis were so intent on anchoring the relay, he could have attended a pre- Olympic training camp.But he was too big for the team.His coaches were too confident of victory.And the U.S. relay members were too arrogant in dismissing the greatest anchor in history.

NEW ORLEANS -- He crossed the finish line and looked to his right, focusing on the cluster of bodies that passed through the tape. It was a strange view. He was accustomed to being in front, raising his arms in triumph. And now, he was defeated. The officials and photographers swarmed him, walked him up the track like bodyguards surrounding a rock star. From the stands came the cheers so warm you almost forgot how hot and humid it was as summer came roaring into New Orleans.

Jay North was supposed to stay 7 years old forever. As television's Dennis the Menace, he would remain frozen in time: a happy-go-lucky extrovert in striped overalls, his wispy blond locks flopping around as he made a mess of every situation.But while the TV series "Dennis the Menace" has aged into an antiquated and innocent piece of Americana -- canceled 30 years ago by CBS -- its star has evolved into someone quite different than we remember.Even during the four years he reigned as the adorable Dennis Mitchell, the image was an illusion.
