IN December 1980, as the Reagan team geared up, David Stockman wrote a now famous memo titled "Avoiding a GOP Economic Dunkirk." Mr. Stockman worried that the economy, reeling from high unemployment, inflation, and the Federal Reserve's tight-money cure, would worsen on Ronald Reagan's watch.The GOP did take losses in the 1982 mid-term elections. But by 1984 the Fed had lightened up, the tax cut of 1981 was stimulating a (short-lived) boom, and Ronald Reagan would be re-elected handily.Like the original Dunkirk evacuation of the British fleet in 1940, the Reagan crew salvaged enough to fight another day. The Gipper would be in happy retirement by the time reality fell in on George Bush.

The midshipman put his mark on his Rawlings Primo right-handed baseball glove, embroidering his name onto the thumb. A U.S. Naval Academy classmate wrote the number "5" and a reference to religious scripture — Philippians 4:13 — on the pinky of his Rawlings Pro Preferred. The person who authorities believe stole the gloves and hawked them on eBay didn't try to obscure the tell-tale markings, and that made it easy for undercover agents with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service to hop on the Internet auction site and buy back the gloves.

BELMONT, N.Y. -- Perhaps more than any horse in the field of the Belmont Stakes, it's almost impossible to predict what Dunkirk is going to do Saturday. When he was purchased for $3.7 million at auction, plenty of people expected big things from Dunkirk, including his trainer, Todd Pletcher. But it has been something of a roller-coaster ride since. The horse almost didn't make the Kentucky Derby field through graded earnings, then did get in and went off as the second choice at 5-1. The horse stumbled out of the gate and then got pinched between Pioneerof the Nile and Papa Clem at the halfway point and finished 19 lengths behind eventual winner Mine That Bird.

ELMONT, N.Y. - -Kent Desormeaux and Calvin Borel not only took different paths around the track in Saturday's 141st running of the Belmont Stakes, with Borel going outside and Desormeaux hugging the inside, but the two jockeys also used different pre-race tactics. Desormeaux rode in a handful of early races on the card, winning three straight at one point, while Borel didn't ride until the Belmont. While Borel might have been better rested, Desormeaux said he felt as if the extra confidence he picked up from those victories helped him. He also got a good feel for the track, something Borel might not have had, considering he had not ridden in the Belmont Stakes before Saturday.
