LOS ANGELES -- Mikhail Gorbachev should feel distinctly unflattered."I cannot even imagine it," said Masha Kalinina, 19, as she waited backstage before an appearance yesterday on the Los Angeles television show "AM LA." "He is as old as my father. It is not ## possible."Kalinina, a tall, dark-eyed young woman who became the first Soviet beauty queen in 1988, has been accused in a Soviet tabloid of an ongoing affair with the 60-year-old Soviet president. The "Mish-Mash Affair," it was called after Gorby's nickname, Misha.

MOSCOW -- On a sweltering afternoon in the first heat wave of Russia's summer, the room at 49 Leningradsky Prospekt is an oven.The lights are off and, as the shadows of late afternoon engulf the building, the room and its occupants bake in the dark.This is, as Russians might say, "normal."Electricity and air conditioning, like government and the economy, are things you can't take for granted in post-Soviet Russia.These days, Mikhail Gorbachev, the last leader of the Soviet Union, winner of the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize and loser of the Cold War, works out of an office here, in a hulking, gray building with a discreet hammer-and-sickle emblem over the door, halfway between the Kremlin and the international airport.

It's a conspiracy theorist's dream come true.A popular leader is forcibly removed and tens of thousands of people are outraged. Demanding the leader's return, the crowds swell throughout the land. Shock has turned to anger. The will of a united people -- laborers, homemakers, students, lawmakers -- grows to an awesome force.Those who secretly plotted the coup back down, overwhelmed by the sudden and unexpected uprising.

Ah, but would Boris Yeltsin be interested in the Gorby doll?The three-day coup in the Soviet Union sparked a boom in sales of the Gorby doll in some parts of the country. Since Monday, a 10-inch cloth-and-plastic rendering of Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev has been selling, at $16.99 a pop, like blini (translation: hotcakes)."Since Monday, we've been going crazy," said Dale Noble, manager at Doll City U.S.A. in Orange, Calif. He estimated nearly 1,000 of the dolls were snatched up by doll collectors and retailers around the country.
