Someday, somehow, major-league baseball will return to America. When it does, our national pastime will have one huge public relations problem.The game's relations with the public just plain stink since the strike that ended the season Aug. 12 and even killed the World Series for the first time in 90 years.The latest polls show that 58 percent of the public blame the owners, and 61 percent blame the players.OK, I realize that's more than 100 percent, but it shows how outraged the public is.Things are so bad that Baltimore's annual midwinter baseball jamboree, otherwise known as the Tops in Sports banquet, is suffering.

Here's the scene: A busy night at the paint counter at Home Depot, Perring Plaza. Here's the lineup: First, a man wearing a tie and carrying a cellular phone; behind him, an attractive young woman with religious icons for earrings; third in line, an older man with a sour mug. The third man is impatient and cranky, obviously guided by the principle that, once served, one is always first in line -- even if one walks away and returns later.There's only one clerk on duty, and he takes a good deal of time and care serving the first customer, who appears to be a novice do-it-himselfer.
