It is probably safe to say that Haight-Ashbury in the 60s (for Windows and Macintosh, about $30) is the first multimedia production to come packaged in its own "collectible stash box."It is also safe to say that excerpts will not appear in a William Bennett CD-ROM of Virtues.In the 1960s, the Haight-Ashbury district in San Francisco was the antithesis of everything the establishment saw as virtuous. The heads in the Haight promoted sex, drugs, rock music and a libertinism that outsiders saw as threatening the very foundations of society but that insiders deemed the pathway to a higher consciousness.

LAUREL -- The last time Runaway Stream raced against Chas' Whim, everyone was in a fog. Literally."That was the day the fog was real heavy," said Randy Bright, assistant to Runaway Stream's trainer, Larry Murray.But since the Congressional Handicap was run at Laurel Race Course last December, Runaway Stream and Chas' Whim have remained among Maryland's top handicap horses. Chas' Whim won that last meeting, but Runaway Stream, owned by Howard Bender of Bethesda, has been more active and more accomplished this year.

Leave It To Beezer, the big gelding trained by Scott Lake, had just about everything going for him entering yesterday's $75,000 Walter Haight Handicap at Laurel Park. Stablemate Over To You, who figured to be one of his main rivals, was scratched with two others from the original seven-horse field. Leave It To Beezer carried a five-race winning streak into the event and had beaten Eastern Daydream June 17 at Pimlico. Only a 124-pound impost loomed as a possible obstacle, with Ewer All Wet and Eastern Daydream toting 11 and eight fewer pounds, respectively.
