St. Peter's basketball coach Bob Leckie harbors no illusions about his 5-foot-8 freshman point guard, Keydren Clark. "If he were 6-foot-3, I wouldn't have been able to touch him with a 10-foot pole," Leckie said. "The major schools would have been all over him." Those major schools might regret their decision after all. Clark, whose 24.4-point scoring average is fifth best among Division I players, helped St. Peter's blow by Loyola, 73-54, last night at Reitz Arena, giving the Peacocks their second Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference win over the Greyhounds in three weeks.

IT'S STEREOTYPICAL. It's demeaning to black people, the worst Hollywood television production about African-Americans ever to come down the pike. The sooner it's hauled off the air and banished to TV-land's graveyard the better.No, I'm not talking about "The PJs," the controversial new animated Fox network show produced by Eddie Murphy. I'm talking about "The Jeffersons," that revolting dreck from the 1970s that will be stinking out the airwaves all next week in telethons on the Nickelodeon channel.

A look at what some other media outlets have to say about the Orioles: * Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News gave the Orioles the top spot in the newspaper's power rankings before the O's were trounced 14-3 by the Texas Rangers  on Monday night : “OK, this thing with the Orioles is getting out of hand. After sweeping the maybe-they-really-are-just-cruddy Red Sox at Fenway over the weekend, they have the best record in baseball at 19-9, a half-game better than the Rays, and they are sending shock waves through our MLB Power Rankings this week.

Barbara Eden got to show off plenty of her anatomy during the five-year run of "I Dream of Jeannie," but one seemingly innocent body part was always kept under wraps. Know which one?* "Geraldo!" (10 a.m.-11 a.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Jeannie, Florence and Carol all on the same show! What riches! You may hear why Jeannie never got to show her belly-button, whether George Jefferson was ever anything but irritating and whether Carol ever found a job after Dr. Hartley left Chicago and opened that inn in Vermont.

TRY AS IT MIGHT, over its more than 40-year history, television has had the toughest time getting together a situation comedy that portrays a black family in a manner that isn't cliched or cartoonish.From "Amos and Andy" in the early 1950s to the current "Fresh Prince of Bel Air," the television landscape has been littered with hackneyed plots and buffoon-like characters that reduce the black family to a weak caricature.Even when the intentions are at their best, as with "The Cosby Show," the results have been unrealistic.

Capt. George Jefferson Price, a retired Pan American World Airways pilot, adventurer and raconteur, packed a lot of living into a life that ended at 96 earlier this month, when he died at a Coral Gables, Fla., nursing home. Price's professional ties to Baltimore were through Pan Am, which he joined in 1942 aboard flying boats and later as a first officer aboard the famed M-130, better known to travelers as the China Clipper, that was built at the Glenn L. Martin Co. plant in Middle River.

Read more, folks. It'll inform ya.For instance, I didn't know before reading the latest copy of Emerge magazine that Sidney Poitier's roles in the films "To Sir With Love" and "Lilies of the Field" were racially degrading.But if Emerge is quoting singer/actor Harry Belafonte correctly, I've been harboring a delusion all these years. "To Sir With Love" and "Lilies of the Field" are two of my favorite films. But to Belafonte, the Poitier roles in those films were "racially offensive."Goes to show you how "racially offensive" matters are strictly in the eyes of the beholder.
