Douglas Kiker, 61, an NBC correspondent and veteran political reporter, died yesterday in his sleep, apparently of a heart attack, at his summer home in Chatham on Massachusetts' Cape Cod. He had been with the network since 1966 and most recently was a contributor to "NBC Nightly News." President Bush, in a handwritten note of condolence to an NBC reporter, said, "I respected Doug -- so did all who saw him as the fair, objective and decent man he was. I'm sorry you've lost a good friend." Before he joined NBC, Mr. Kiker was the White House correspondent for the New York Herald Tribune and was in the presidential motorcade when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas in 1963.

THIS IS A STORY that will either make you smile and reaffirm your faith in humanity, or make you sad that an incident like this is even considered a big deal in this day and age. It begins the other day after we drove up to see my in-laws on Long Island for my niece's high-school graduation party. We'd been there a few minutes when my wife said to me: "Go out to the car and get my purse, and we'll give Stephanie her present." Fine. I went out to the car. No purse. When I reported back that there was no purse - and therefore no present for the happy graduate - my wife gave a start, as if someone jabbed her with a cattle prod.
