CLEVELAND -- Hundreds of thousands of black men march on Washington, and an entire nation takes notice.The Atlanta Braves rally to the tomahawk chop, the Cleveland Indians wear Chief Wahoo on their caps, and hardly anyone cares.Sorry to interrupt the World Series, but if we're going to end racism, let's end racism.End it so no group suffers.End it once and for all.Oh, no one wants to hear this, especially the white majority, especially during baseball's showcase event.But how can a nation inspired by an event as moving as the Million Man March continue to allow such blatant racism against Native Americans?

WASHINGTON -- Virtually every review of Dan Quayle's new book, "Standing Firm," contains a line about how Quayle "reveals" that he considered running for president in 1988.There are two reasons almost all reviewers mentions this:1. It appears on page 18 and most book reviewers don't stop reading a book until page 50 or so.2. It is the height of audacity that a person such as Dan Quayle should have even dreamt of running for president in 1988.In the interest of establishing an accurate historical record, however, and also to stroke my own ego, Quayle does not reveal his 1988 presidential plans in his new book.

I HAVE lately picked up heartening-sounding messages from the new wave of feminists. Writer Naomi Wolf urges women to jettison the old "victim feminism" for a positive, inclusive "power feminism" that will ensure women's true equality with men. A recent issue of Esquire celebrating "The 21st Century Fox" declares that man-hating is passe. (Whose idea was that, anyway?) Make way for the "sexual-agency" agitators, "beating their swords into bustiers" and proclaiming women's right to pleasure.

MINNEAPOLIS -- It's a wonderful time for the World Series, what with the nastiness of recent events and all. We need a diversion, don't we?And this is no routine World Series, either. No, sir. This one is your basic morality play, all about not giving up and hard work paying off. We love that. Here you have two teams who finished last only a year ago and who now find themselves battling for the championship of the free world, the only world that's left.They're calling these comebacks worst-to-first, a phrase with which you may be familiar.

First, we heeded Jim Fixx's call and jogged to stay in shape. Then, we donned our leg warmers and aerobicized with Jane Fonda. We might have given kickboxing and Spinning a shot along the way, with a dollop of tai chi or Pilates thrown in for good measure. But these days, gyms look more and more like dance studios as fitness buffs merengue and plie their way to firm bodies. Health clubs nationwide are increasingly offering workouts inspired by dance, from ballet, hula, hip-hop and salsa to just about everything in between.

FIRST of all, I don't want to be known as a "party pooper" or as someone with an axe to grind. But I have a very strong opinion about this subject matter and as one responsible to himself to uphold his own integrity, I feel the topic must be broached.Let me begin at the beginning. Several years ago I watched, for a very short time, the antics of Atlanta Braves fans during the World Series. I was appalled, disgusted and nauseated.There in the stands, for the world to take seriously, was the owner of the Braves and his wife, joining gleefully in the performance of the dreaded "tomahawk chop."

EVER SINCE Jane Fonda first began working out on video in our living rooms in 1982, she has been America's fitness guru.She seems to have always been a quicker study than most of us, recognizing the need for a healthy body when she became an actress more than 30 years ago and, as she puts it, "appearance became more important."Not only have we wanted to look like her, we've also wanted to feel as good as she said she felt."I never could understand why after a long 15-hour day on the sound stage everyone would be real tired," she said in an interview.

Letters, calls and the roar of the crowd:Jane Crawford, Baltimore: The letter Susan White-Bowden received should be turned over to the FBI, don't you think so? The Midwest seems to be full of gun nuts. Too much loco weed!COMMENT: I am deeply hurt. I was born and raised in the Midwest and would remind you that it has been home to such great Americans as Jesse James, Bonnie and Clyde and John Dillinger.But fairness dictates that I repeat an old joke:Q: Why do they call the Midwest the heartland?

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Didn't we already fight the battle over the National Guard? It was 1988, and Dan Quayle had just been selected by presidential nominee George H.W. Bush as his running mate. At a news conference in New Orleans, Mr. Quayle was asked about his military service in the National Guard by ABC reporter Susan King. Mr. Quayle made what some reporters thought was a suspect defense of his motives for joining the Guard. The media accused Mr. Quayle of becoming a guardsman to avoid service in Vietnam.

LOS ANGELES - Jane Fonda was coming to wardrobe. Jane Fonda was coming to wardrobe. Wanda Sykes, in a makeup chair on the set of Monster-in-Law, had to get out of there. "I was like, I can't meet Jane Fonda today. I'm not ready for that!" says Sykes, the fast-rising actress and comedian who has parlayed her stand-up success into film and television roles. For all her success - she drew critical raves for her role in the spring film Monster-in-Law, her first major Hollywood film - Sykes can still seem like the star-struck kid who grew up in Gambrills in Anne Arundel County and worked at the National Security Agency.
