When I was Monica Lewinsky's age, I knew a guy who knew another guy who said he was sleeping with Miss February 1964. Who knew if he was telling the truth? It so happened, Miss February worked as a bunny at the Playboy Club on Light Street, so at least the guy had geography supporting his story.All of us were caught between wanting to believe him and finding it too fantastic for words. To get near Miss February was to enter another league; it was like kissing Marilyn Monroe. Outwardly, we all sneered.

The phone rings, and when I pick up, a secretary's voice says something you don't hear every day: "May I put Mr. Hefner on?" This would be Hugh Hefner, legendary founder of Playboy magazine, High Priest of Hedonism, reality TV star, and what am I supposed to say? No, I'm too busy? No, all he talks about is that boring sex, sex, sex stuff? So, of course, I say yes, and seconds later, Hef himself - he likes to be called Hef, even by the jackals in the media - is on the horn from his California mansion.

It's a Monday with nothing really special on tap, but with weekly series doing their best to provide something that may get attention -- like, say, Hugh Hefner on two NBC sitcoms, or Mike Wallace and Orrin Hatch on one CBS sitcom.* "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" (8-8:30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Hilary (Karyn Parsons) takes Will (Will Smith) to a party -- at the Playboy Mansion, where Hugh Hefner is in attendance. NBC.* "I'll Fly Away" (8-9 p.m., WETA, Channel 26) -- The primary characters on this fine series adjust their allegiances a bit tonight, as Forrest (Sam Waterston)

WASHINGTON, Mo. - The 19th-century brewery is gone, and so is the zither factory that began production at the end of the Civil War. But in the old brick building near the gently sloping southern bank of the Missouri River, a few dozen men and women cut, bore, shape, glaze and finally piece together thousands of corncob pipes every day, just as their predecessors started doing here 135 years ago. In an age of declining cigarette use and the rise of...

HALLANDALE, Fla. -- The three-day Breeders' Cup meet -- the richest three days in thoroughbred history -- begins today at Gulfstream Park with eight stakes, peaks tomorrow with 10 stakes (eight of them Breeders' Cup races) and concludes Sunday with eight more stakes. Purses for the three days total $15,425,000.For Maryland racing fans, especially those associated with Country Life Farm, the eighth race today merits close attention. It is the $100,000 Love's Exchange Stakes for 3-year-old fillies racing six furlongs, and it features one of the most exciting Maryland-breds in years: Hookedonthefeelin.

Let's get right to the question everyone is asking: Is Hugh Hefner (the playboy) coming to Baltimore to see Hugh Hefner (the horse) run in the Preakness on Saturday at Pimlico? "Not one chance in 10 million," Edward Nahem, owner of the equine 'Hef,' said yesterday. But didn't the real 'Hef' travel to South Florida with an entourage of Playboy bunnies to watch his namesake run in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile in November at Gulfstream? "He did," Nahem said. "We flew [from California] on the plane together, as a matter of fact.

He likes to go around all day in his pj's drinking Pepsi-Cola out of bottles and cans.There are many self-made men in American life. But almost all of them bow to some convention or other:Ross Perot may disdain the snooty ways of the rich, but he dresses in blue pinstripe suits identical to those of a banker.

There is speed on the rail, on the far outside and in the center of the pack. The overwhelming favorite, Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus, and the second choice, Red Bullet, are right where they want to be. So, the 125th Preakness should provide an intriguing race after the post position draw was executed yesterday at the ESPN Zone. With only eight horses and a quarter mile of ground to the first turn, the Preakness draw usually lacks the drama of the Kentucky Derby, where a cavalry charge for position frequently occurs in a crowded field.

He seemingly comes from the next county, a modern-day Silky Sullivan who is so far back at the beginning that he seems to be running in a different race. Another torrid pace - such as the one Hal's Hope established in the Kentucky Derby - would be just peachy for Impeachment, a horse with serious late kick and hopes of having enough left down the lane tomorrow to outfinish Fusaichi Pegasus or whomever else might be at the front."If he moves forward two or three lengths and Fusaichi moves back a couple, we're right there," said Impeachment's trainer, Todd Pletcher.

The "Bullet" fired and shot down the latest candidate for the label "superhorse." For five weeks, Red Bullet was pointed toward the rematch with Fusaichi Pegasus, who had beaten him by 4 1/4 lengths in the Wood Memorial on April 15 at Aqueduct. Red Bullet's ownership reluctantly passed on the temptation to compete in the Kentucky Derby, thereby avoiding all the shipping, the commotion and the cavalry charge in the race itself that can drain a horse with the Preakness only two weeks away.

When it became clear that Fusaichi Pegasus was not going to keep up with Red Bullet, the question turned to whether he could hold off the explosive late charge of Impeachment. He did, but barely. Ridden by Craig Perret, Impeachment came within a head of overcoming the Kentucky Derby winner. Impeachment also finished third in the Derby, courtesy of the same late burst of speed."We had a good trip, but it turned out he was just the third best horse," Perret said. "One of these days the big guys are going to stub their toes and Impeachment is going to win a very significant race.

It's Men of the Year time, and the magazine that gave us the concept, Time, offers up as its selection (Dec. 26-Jan. 2) John Paul II, who "towered in moral stature over everyone else visible on the world stage." Hasn't that been the case every other year he's been pope, too? Of course, in 1994 he published a best seller for the first time. Good thing Faye Resnick doesn't tower in moral stature.Rolling Stone (Dec. 29-Jan. 12) also gets in the act, picking David Letterman as its Big Guy. But why this year?
