Greenwich, Connecticut. -- For me, the good news/bad news ambivalence is running high these days. It all has to do with parental confusion, an Ivy League school and one of the most troubling programs ever to come on the tube.Newsweek has a lot to do with this, specifically the magazine's October 11 edition with the cover that shows David Letterman beside a headline ''Stupid TV Tricks/The Billion-Dollar Battle to Insult Your Intelligence.'' Dave shares the cover with two cartoon characters who star in an MTV show named after them, ''Beavis and Butt-head.

CHICAGO - The phone rang just as the Washington Nationals' Nick Johnson was crossing home plate after pounding a home run off the facade of the upper deck at RFK Stadium against Greg Maddux and the Chicago Cubs on May 15. "Snack-shack distance," my son declared. "And then some," I agreed. His reference was to Dooley Field, a well-kept jewel of a Little League complex in Sacramento, Calif., that has been a field of dreams for thousands of aspiring ballplayers during its 50-plus years of existence.

Start making plans now, so you'll be sure not to miss the first "inning" of "Baseball," the mammoth but majestic documentary series premiering tomorrow night on PBS. I know, this is only Saturday, but "Baseball" is good enough to warrant some planning. Besides, given the state of TV tonight, it makes perfect sense to spend the time talking about TV tomorrow.* "ABC Family Movie: Teen Wolf" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., Channel 13) -- ABC's concept for this time slot is to present old movies and new remakes of family films, aiming to satisfy the Saturday-night audience that habitually rents videos.

THIS BEING the start of the outdoor cooking season, I went looking for the Holy Grail of grilling, and in the leafy back yard of Richard and Mary Lou Pagella's rambling Victorian farmhouse in Perry Hall, I found it. It rises from the patio like a gleaming, stainless-steel altar: a 48-inch, top of the line professional DCS gas grill, which, if you were so inclined to purchase it at Barbeques Galore in White Marsh and did not catch a sale (as Richard Pagella...

I have seen the future, and, as you'd expect, it's on MTV. You can see it, too, if you tune in weeknights at 7 p.m. or 11 p.m.I'm talking, of course, about Beavis and Butt-head.I'm talkin' about th-th-th-their g-g-g-generation.Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh.If you don't know Beavis and Butt-head, you're either not a teen-ager or you're not parents of teen-agers or you don't know teen-agers or, face it, you're just extremely unhip.For the uninitiated, I'll give you a quick intro. Beavis and Butt-head are the submoronic animated characters -- they make Wayne and Garth look like McNeil and Lehrer -- who have enthralled so many of our occasionally moronic and rarely animated teens.

MTV has moved its early evening showings of "Beavis and Butt-head" to a 10:30 p.m. time slot where young children presumably will not be watching.It's a move to which Beavis and Butt-head might respond with their trademark "Heh-heh. Heh-heh. Cool," since many youngsters stay up late anyway or know how to program their VCRs better than their parents do. The MTV move took effect last night.The cult cartoon series came under fire during the past two weeks, after an Ohio mother blamed Beavis and Butt-head's pyrotechnic hi-jinks (lighting fires and firecrackers)

TWENTY-eight years ago I stumbled into The Evening Sun and into the patient arms of Tommy Flannery. It was the bright idea of the editor-in-chief Price Day, to hire an untested, unpublished cartoonist from a business background, to replace Tommy who replaced Richard "Moco" Q. Yardley. My general demeanor can be described as unadulterated panic. Tommy treated my condition with generous doses of good humor and calm.Tommy knew that editorial cartooning couldn't be taught. Editorial cartooning is a bad habit carried over from childhood, which a few adults find themselves miraculously being paid to do instead of being sent to the principal's office.

Ylvisaker, 70, who championed cities and the urban underclass as a planner, government official, foundation executive and educator, died Tuesday at George Washington University Hospital in Washington.

The last thing my friend Ike says as he's dropping us at the house the other night is, "Now, I'm not gonna see a word of this in the newspaper, right?""Heh-heh," I reply thoughtfully, with the accent squarely on both heh's, as I grab my bride and the two of us make a run for the house."Heh-heh" is a response which is actually a nonresponse, unless you're clever enough to read between the heh's. Roughly translated, and leaving room for the various inflections, it means:"Of course this is going in the newspaper!

THE RAVENS Fan needs to talk to someone. Despite the happy confluence of events that finds his team in the Super Bowl and Baltimore alive with excitement, there is something troubling him, a little voice inside that keeps whispering: "You need professional help." OK, it's really his wife's voice, and she doesn't exactly whisper. No, she's been shouting this every Sunday for the past three weeks, the voice drifting down to the basement where he sits bathed in the blue-white glow of the 32-inch RCA, watching his team amid the faux wood paneling and the twin Bud Light signs and the ratty frat-house furniture.

On rain-dappled Duck Creek, the old sidewheeler bay boat Lang Syne rests at an Essex Yacht Club dock like a phantom from the age when bay liners scurried back and forth on the Chesapeake like water bugs on a pond. Lang Syne is a compact version of such storied steamboats as the Anne Arundel, the City of Norfolk, the Calvert, the Dorchester, the Potomac and the Emma Giles. It's a reminder of an era that ended in 1963 when the City of Richmond docked for the last time at Pratt Street. The hard-used Lang Syne was derelict about five years ago when the Lehrer family of Essex spotted it tied to a tree on the Susquehanna River at Havre de Grace.

This should be about Delino DeShields, who went 4-for-5 last night, drove in the go-ahead run and scored the insurance run - heh, heh - in the eighth inning. This should be about how the Orioles rallied from 3-0 and 5-3 deficits against the first-place New York Yankees, then rallied one more time after blowing an 8-5 lead. But this is about none of those things. No, this is about another Orioles' defeat at Yankee Stadium, which means it is being frantically re-written after a walk-off Yankees victory, and that the names won't be changed to protect the innocent.

THERE'S A late night commercial aimed at people who have something to worry about. A guy and his wife are in their nightwear. They are suffering from insomnia and agitation, like much of the audience watching television at 1 a.m.It seems they have piles of bills, all unpaid. The couple hears about a mortgage that would allow them to borrow up to 125 percent of their home's value. They go for the loan and use the proceeds to pay off the other bills. Peace of mind restored, the couple can sleep again.

Well, I don't know about you, but I'm sitting home in Winter Park, Fla., thinking, "Hey, you never saw me lose to the Royals on Opening Day."Who am I?Who do you think I am?Mr. Angelos' favorite whipping boy.The 1997 American League Manager of the Year.The one, the only, Davey Johnson.Played 18 yesterday. Play 18 lots of days. Came home, asked Susan the score, thought, "Man, that sounds familiar."Don't ask me about the Orioles. I ain't got nothing to say.But shoot, a $68.7 million payroll, and you'd think that club could score more than one run.How old is Tim Belcher, anyway?

New York -- Once upon a time there was a television guy here named Stanley Siegel, a flash-in-the-tube who attracted attention doing such things as broadcasting from a bathtub full of Jello.Someone asked what he really wanted. Mr. Siegel answered, ''My own channel!'' He wanted to be on 24 hours a day, so people could watch him sleep and shave in the morning, whatever. He never quite made it.But maybe Newt Gingrich will do it in his name. Or maybe Bill Clinton will.TTC: The Clinton Channel.

Can't wait for the wild-card playoff between the Orioles and Texas. Owner Peter Angelos will carry out the lineup card for the Orioles. Rangers manager Johnny Oates will see Leo Gomez's name, and faint at home plate.Davey Johnson then will insert Todd Zeile at third base, and nap in the dugout while the Orioles pound the Rangers, 26-7 -- with Manny Alexander pitching a triumphant scoreless inning to end the game.Where would the game be? Don't know yet. The league held coin flips 10 days ago to determine home-field advantage for possible one-game playoffs for the wild-card berth, but the Rangers didn't flip because of their nine-game lead in the American League West.
