Maybe it was nothing more than the height of his game that left Bernard King dizzy two days ago.Whatever it was that sidelined the Washington Bullets' All-Star forward during Sunday's game in Boston apparently vanished as quickly as it appeared. King was forced to leave the 119-101 loss to the Celtics shortly after the start of the third quarter and his quick exit fueled numerous rumors.King complained of dizziness and shortness of breath and had what was described as "an erratic heartbeat."

MOST AMERICANS believe that our society is too uncivil, too impolite. Our politics become mean-spirited and cynical. People yelling at each other on television passes as entertainment. Daily interactions grow more suspicious and mistrustful. We size each other up as members of competing, even antithetical, identity groups.We desperately want to make things different, yet we don't have the slightest idea what ''civil'' and ''civility'' requires -- or means. Martin Luther King Jr.'s holiday provides an opportunity to reflect on another important use of the word ''civil'' -- the civil-rights movement.

On Friday night, I had the chance to chat with the Rev. Benjamin L. Hooks, the keynote speaker at the 18th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Awards Dinner in Glen Burnie. It was fascinating to mark King's birthday by talking with a contemporary of his about the impact of the civil rights leader and preacher, who would have turned 77 Sunday. (Hooks turns 81 this month.) Hooks is best known as executive director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People from 1977 to 1993.
