As an English teacher, I've always enjoyed the pleasures of reading; specifically, the writings of 19th and 20th century martyrs and confessors who used eloquent narratives and folklore to tell stories of their rags and redemption. But my reading never quite prepared me for the task of reflecting on my personal experience with a particular martyred leader from which my own life, faith and view of the world would be deeply affected. I grew up in Baltimore and was raised by a single mother who believed that storytelling and faith was all that mattered.

DALLAS -- Ross Perot said just two weeks ago that he was as likely to become an active presidential candidate again as he was to leap a tall building in a single bound. Now it appears all but certain that he'll leap with both feet into the countdown days of election year '92.If voters are having a hard time getting a handle on the mercurial Texas billionaire, who's expected to announce his reborn candidacy here at a 4 p.m. press conference today, it may be because his words don't always match his actions or, in some cases, his previous words.

Monday night Larry King did Dallas and got lots of publicity.In fact, every time Larry King hooks up with on-again-off-again presidential candidate Ross Perot, he generates lots of publicity and water-cooler buzz.But a question seldom asked when discussing what an important force in American politics CNN's "Larry King Live" show seems to have become is just how many people actually watch the show on a regular basis. There are other questions, too, such as why Perot and King keep getting together and what happens in terms of ratings and politics when they do.On a regular basis, more people watch nightly reruns of Jessica Fletcher in "Murder She Wrote" on cable channel USA than watch Larry King.

Take the night off. For the most part, TV has.* "Fall From Grace" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Part 2 of 2. Plans for the Normandy invasion are developed, hidden and eagerly sought in the conclusion of this imported miniseries, which makes the plans for D-Day seem almost as important as whether an Allied agent (Tara Fitzgerald) will be faithful to a fellow agent (Gary Cole), and whether he, in turn, will fall for the advances of another fellow agent (Patsy Kensit). In the end, the Allies conquer the Germans, and love conquers all. Michael York plays a sinister Nazi with more subtlety than expected.

It's Patrick Ewing vs. Puccini tonight, as the season's first installment of the NBA finals goes head-to-head against the season's last installment of "Great Performances."* "NBA Finals" (9 p.m.-conclusion, WMAR, Channel 2) -- This has the makings of a really good series: The New York Knicks, led by Mr. Ewing, against the Houston Rockets, led by Hakeem Olajuwon. The Knicks haven't been in the finals for 21 years, and the Rockets last reached that esteemed orbit in 1986 -- where Mr. Olajuwon and company lost to Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics in six. Tonight's first game gives Houston the home-court advantage -- and ask the Knicks if that isn't important.

The red carpet - it's got a casualty rate worse than a Dick Cheney hunting trip. The Rivers women, Joan and Melissa, have been busted to the TV Guide Channel, where they have to do their snarky shtick squashed into a horizontally split screen while listings for Japanese anime and celebrity poker shows roll queasily below them. Comic Kathy Griffin got sent back down to the minors for joking about a 10-year-old actress going into rehab. And Isaac Mizrahi, the gay fashion designer, was unrepentant after committing what sure looked to me like misdemeanor battery on live TV at the Golden Globes, squeezing one actress' breasts and asking another about her nether hair.

The Rev. Benjamin L. Hooks, a senior statesman of the civil rights movement who worked in concert with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. during King's last days in 1968, told a dinner assembly honoring King last night that "they killed the dreamer but not the dream" of racial equality. In advance of the King holiday Monday, Hooks, executive director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People from 1977 to 1993, told the crowd of about 1,000 in Glen Burnie that he was disappointed that the day seemed to have lost some meaning, and the movement as a whole a measure of urgency.

Larry King's account of the 1992 presidential campaign has the flavor of his television talk show -- it's upbeat, occasionally funny, and hardly ever tells you anything you didn't already know.It's one of a widely growing category of books that retell what you just saw on TV, with a few personal anecdotes thrown in. Amy Fisher observers and H. Norman Schwarzkopf and grandmotherly sex experts write them. You can probably buy them on the shopping channel.Mr. King's thesis is that TV and radio call-in shows changed the way American politicians campaigned in 1992 -- and Larry King was at the center of it. Candidates from H. Ross Perot to George Bush came by "Larry King Live" at CNN to chat with Larry and his several million viewers before the November election.
