THE MARYLAND SPCA's first March for the Animals attracted more than 400 animal lovers with their four-legged friends. I'm told it was a real hoot to watch instructors from the Downtown Athletic Club get things warmed up with Doggie Stretches.Among the walkers who helped raise more than $30,000 for the SPCA were WMAR's Sandra Pinckney and her dog, "Morley"; MIX 106 radio deejay Julie DeHarty and her dog, "Charley"; Pokey Brown and her dog, "Hannibal," who walked with pals Anne and Tom Bailliere and their dog, "Pokey"; SPCA board member Ann Clapp and her husband, Harvey, walking with their pooches, "Paul" and "George," while son David Clapp and Trini Edson from the Barclay School brought their dogs "Jake" and "Refi"; Patrice Malloy, SPCA board member and MTA marketing director, arrived with "Reggie" and "Phoebe"; and Dr. Murray Sarubin and his wife, Susan, were strutting with doggies "Kimba" and "Max."

There was once a time -- I think it was about a month ago -- when working for a newspaper meant something.If nothing else, it meant you were automatically enrolled as a card-carrying, liberal, decaf-sipping nabob of negativism who pretty much ran the country. You also might get a shot on the McLaughlin Group.Apparently it didn't matter that for the last 12 years, the anti-liberal, anti-decaf poo-bahs of positivism commandeered the oval office. The media were still in charge. That's what Pat Buchanan said anyway.

Talk show host Larry King's plan to move his two-way conversations from late-night to mid-afternoon in February will cost him his berth on Baltimore's big WBAL-AM (1090). And it remains to be seen whether local listeners will be able to hear him at all."It's a shame. We had every intention of keeping Larry King on overnight, but he will not air on WBAL in the afternoon," says station vice president and general manager Jeff Beauchamp.Taking the King show in its planned 3 to 6 p.m. slot Feb. 1, he says, would mean cutting back on "The Ron Smith Show," heard now from 1 to 4 p.m., and eliminating two hours of the station's news roundup that begins at 4 p.m."

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.

Politicians are people too -- and that can put them in a tough spot. When Vice President Dan Quayle spoke as a father first and indicated to talk show host Larry King this week that he would support whatever decision his 13-year-old daughter would make about abortion, he found himself the center of another media feeding frenzy.And no wonder. The remark, a response to a hypothetical question, stood in stark contrast to the political platform he represents.Predictably, it triggered a barrage of ridicule from one side of the abortion debate and a responding round of defensive explanations from the other.

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.

HERE'S YOUR choice next Tuesday night as you curl up on your sofa and ponder which TV show to watch. Will it be "Who Wants to be a Millionaire"? "NYPD Blue"? Or a conversation between Al Gore and George W. Bush? In the ratings game, the Gore-Bush debate would finish last. That may be what Mr. Bush, the Republican presidential nominee, seeks: a debate format short in length, suitable to his informal style and largely unwatched. That's the impression the Texas governor is leaving. He looks like he's trying to manipulate this year's presidential debates for his own strategic purposes.

Washington -- IS LARRY King a journalist? Is Ted Koppel a talk-show host? Is there any difference between the two?Until recently, the answer to the first question was "no"; the answer to the second equally "no"; and to the third a resounding "yes."Mr. King was unmistakably the king of talk, but no one expects him to do a stand-upper on arms control from the State Department. Mr. Koppel was the journalist, who covered wars, politics and diplomacy for ABC News before the Ayatollah Khomeini launched the Iran hostage crisis in 1979 and -- unwittingly -- the exceptional "Nightline."

Amazing how a name can trigger a sudden burst of memories. "Hello, this is Ryan Wineke," a voice on the phone said. The name is pronounced "Win-ek-ee. " As soon as I heard it, I thought of Larry Wineke, the only man I ever knew by that name. I assumed he must have run out of time. "You wrote a story about my dad 18 years ago," the young man on the phone said. Indeed I had. Larry Wineke - Calvert Hall teacher and coach, big man, tough man and teddy bear - had a heart transplant at Johns Hopkins Hospital on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 23, 1995.
