WELL, WE live in nervous times. The terrorists arrive that awful Sept. 11 morning, and the nation spends the past two years trying to cope. The government investigates shadowy places where it never previously stuck its nose, and the civil libertarians shudder. Is Big Brother getting too snoopy? A 12-year-old kid at Boys' Latin researches a paper on the Bay Bridge, and suddenly the FBI's Joint Terrorist Task Force shows up in the headmaster's office. You could laugh if you didn't know the jangled nerves that set off such a reaction.

Poly and Patterson had already met twice this season before squaring off again last night in the championship of the Gilman Tournament.Last night's meeting -- a 74-73 win for Poly -- was the most exciting, coming down to the final seconds. The last second to be exact. One, long, agonizing second that Patterson won't forget for a while.Poly was up 74-72 when Patterson's Ariel Gaines was fouled with one second left, sending him to the free-throw line with a chance to tie the game.Gaines missed the first shot, and Poly called a timeout.

EMMITSBURG -- In a matter of minutes, the forecast for Mount St. Mary's changed from sunny and bright to gloomy and stormy last night. The Mount appeared to have Northeast Conference rival St. Francis (Pa.) well in command, but then squandered a 19-point lead and absorbed an ugly 71-64 defeat before 1,811 fans at Knott Arena. "This was not an auspicious way to start a five-game homestand," said the Mount's venerated coach, Jim Phelan. "How can you let a lead like that get away? It's very disappointing to put it mildly."

It is a vacuous truism that the Supreme Court has nine justices and that every one of them has a vote that counts. Of the 108 justices who have served throughout the court's 209 years, perhaps not more than a third of them, at most, have really counted in the court's history. The rest have been merely bench-sitters or, at most, cameo role-players, supporting cast to the stars.The court's history is that of the individuals who have the imagination to lead others to decision, perhaps against their will, or to invent or enlarge doctrine.
