For each of the past 10 seasons, there has been little variety atop the American League East standings. Every year, it's either the New York Yankees or Boston Red Sox. To get an idea of how long it has been, the Orioles were the most recent non-Sox, non-Yanks first-place team in the division and major league baseball hadn't even found Tampa, Fla., yet. Here we are, just two weeks left in the season, and there's actually a chance for a new king to sit...

Forget Dick Vitale's invention of the current college basketball vernacular. Long before he screamed at us about the virtues of the latest and greatest Blue Devils - something he will inevitably do this season - one word was used more than any other. That word - dynasty - might now be extinct, even for Dickie V. In what has become a here-today-playing-in-the-NBA-tomorrow kind of world, the shelf life for those remaining at or near the top of the college basketball food chain has shriveled dramatically.

FROM "The New Generation Gap," by Neil Howe and Willia Strauss in the December issue of the Atlantic:"A quarter century ago kids called older people names. These days, the reverse is true. For the past decade Thirteeners have been bombarded with study after story after column about how dumb, greedy and just plain bad they supposedly are."They can't find Chicago on a map. They don't know when the Civil War was fought. They watch too much TV, spend too much time shopping, seldom vote, cheat on tests, don't read newspapers and care way too much about cars, clothes, shoes and money . . ."

Spit like a curse. Hurled like a stone. Un-American is a label usually reserved for a blasphemer, traitor or mutineer, intended not only to sting but to scar, to sequester and to muzzle. But what - and who - exactly does it mean? These days, the label affixes as easily to the right wing as to the left; to peaceniks as well as hawks; environmentalists and developers; the anti-abortion crowd and pro-choice advocates. Anyone, it seems, in the post-9/11 United States can be called un-American.

YOU THINK THEY put machines through their paces at the Army's Aberdeen Proving Ground in Harford County? Then you've never seen the trials kids inflict on the indoor carousel at the McDonald's on Emmorton Road in nearby Abingdon.The carousel is part of a small indoor playground, not uncommon at McDonald's restaurants. There are little figures for children to ride: a smiley hamburger-headed thing and a few other fast food gargoyles. But kids being kids, most aren't content to merely ride the ride.

NTC Attention, all motorcyclists: Don your helmets!Starting next Thursday, it could cost unwary motorcyclists $50 every time they fail to put on safety helmets before taking their vehicles out for a spin. Maryland's revived helmet law goes into effect on that day, with a $50 citation imposed on those who break the law.Drivers should know that state and local police chiefs say they'll enforce the law -- vigorously. "If you're not wearing a helmet, expect to meet a state trooper," warns Larry Tolliver, the state police superintendent.

Washington -- TAX BREAKS FOR the middle class. A balanced federal budget in the next century. Limits on the growth of federal spending. That's what the voters want, the polls say. We should act quickly.Few dare to question the new mantra. A rare skeptic, Laura Tyson, chair of President Clinton's Council of Economic Advisers, suggests that the "discipline of the markets" might alter these plans. But her voice is all but lost as the mighty host raised by incoming House Speaker Newt Gingrich girds for a "revolution."

Just before dawn on Oct. 4, 2006, Enos Miller, an Amish man with a long gray beard, walked past the school where two of his granddaughters had been fatally shot two days before. A television reporter approached and asked him if he had forgiven the gunman. "In my heart, yes," said Miller, his voice wavering. "How is that possible?" she asked. His answer: "Through God's help." Miller's words - emblematic of the community's response to the tragedy - quickly became international news. How could the Amish so quickly forgive the man who killed five of their daughters and wounded five others?

If good things do, indeed, come in small packages, Navy should be destined for another bountiful football season. Fresh from a 10-2 record and an Emerald Bowl victory over New Mexico, the Midshipmen will play a more demanding schedule with the shortest starting unit in the nation. Six players projected for the No. 1 unit stand 5 feet 9 or less, including the entire offensive backfield. Gone are the horses, pile-driving fullback Kyle Eckel and solid quarterback Aaron Polanco. Gone, too, are sizable slotbacks, Frank Divis and Eric Roberts.

NEW YORK - To get to the Game of the Century, you need two teams up to the task. Say what you want about the Evil Empire and the Curse of the Bambino Team from Boston: They know how to put on a postseason party. From Aaron Boone's homer in Game 7 one year ago to David Ortiz's game-winning hits this October, the Yankees and Red Sox have played in a realm not recommended for the faint of heart. "For me to say everybody's blasM-i about it and not have some anxiety [would be wrong]," Yankees manager Joe Torre said last night.

WASHINGTON - America's new enemies in Iraq have been variously described as Baath Party loyalists, "foreign fighters," "terrorists," "criminals" and combinations of all of those. But in an intelligence void that even U.S. officials acknowledge, little is known about the insurgents' numbers and whether or how they work together. More important, experts are unsure whether the attacks mark the beginning of a national resistance movement, with popular support, that could present a far deadlier challenge to American forces.

Once in a while, not often, I slide one past the goalie, and then I punch the air like a maniac. And as I skate to the bench where my teammates slap me on the helmet until my ears ring, a guy named Paul, who could be my son, cracks the same old joke: "One more shot like that, we'll get you a date with a gorgeous blonde." And Big Lou will make like a sportscaster and announce: "The wily veteran has done it one more time," as I happily fight for breath.Because Mother Nature has endowed me with better legs than brains, I play right wing with the Reds, who together with the Blues constitute the Main Line Hockey Club, arguably the least conspicuous franchise in all of sports.

CLUNY, France -- They could have hiked in the Alps, baked on the Riviera or hopscotched across Europe. But the Vasseur family, from Boulogne in northern France, chose to spend three weeks idling by their 12-foot camper in a municipal campground midway between Paris and Marseilles. They have all the necessities, including three swimming pools teeming with about 300 people, spirited Scrabble contests and a neighborhood badminton game of batting a shuttlecock over a laundry line. "A vacation means to do nothing," Martine Vasseur says while sitting beneath a tarp and sipping afternoon fruit juice with her husband, Michel, and 12-year-old daughter, Aline.
