When thousands of cattle fell sick from mad cow disease in the United Kingdom and a growing number of people became infected from the human equivalent of the disease, American authorities barred blood donations from people who had spent months in Britain during that epidemic. A single case of mad cow confirmed this month in Washington state is unlikely to prompt a repeat of those aggressive protection measures. The risk of mad-cow-tainted blood seeping into the nation's supply from American donors is minimal, officials said.

Mad River, the bar and restaurant, is named for Vermont's Mad River Valley, a rough and tumble mecca for skiing, white-water rafting and other outdoor activities. Maybe you've seen the "Ski it if you can" bumper stickers for Mad River Glen on the bumper of a beat-up Volvo near you. Of course, the restaurant, in the heart of urban Federal Hill, has nothing to do with sports or the great outdoors. Its other two locations are in Manhattan and Albany, N.Y., also far from mountains and rushing rivers.

Miami -- If they were mad before Game 5 of the NBA Finals, the Dallas Mavericks should be really, really mad for Game 6 tonight in Dallas. That's cussing, conspiracy-advancing, victory-guaranteeing mad. The Mavericks, already miffed at Jerry Stackhouse's suspension for Game 5, lost 101-100 in overtime to the Miami Heat on Sunday night and then lost their cool in the aftermath of some controversial calls. "The referees are trying to cheat us out of this," said forward Josh Howard. "What are we supposed to do?"

He could say salty things about his experience in the industry. But handsome soul newcomer Governor Washington Jr. (he goes by just his first name) stresses over and over again, "I'm not mad." So what if a potentially lucrative partnership with celebrated producer Dr. Dre fell through? So what if he's recorded three albums, and only one, Son of Pain, will see the light of day next month? "It's in me to not let the system beat me," says Governor, who's calling from Washington. "I'm a ball of energy.

You might expect a production of Jean Giraudoux's satirical fantasy, "The Madwoman of Chaillot," to have a sense of wackiness, lunacy and, yes, madness. But those qualities are often lacking in director Jim Petosa's largely static production at Olney Theatre Center. The evening gets off to a lively enough start. Alan Wade, who plays the Ragpicker, enters jauntily down the theater's main aisle and, in French, invites us to join him at a cafe. Soon the stage is filled with the colorful array of eccentrics who make up the title character's entourage - a juggler, a street singer, a flower seller, etc. "This isn't a cafe.

When history selects the trigger man for the latest round of air strikes in Iraq, the role ultimately may fall not to President Clinton but to Richard Butler.That's because it was Butler's sharply critical report, delivered to meet a United Nations deadline, that chiefly led Clinton to order the attacks that began Wednesday, bad timing or not.Little known to most of the world beyond fleeting television clips featuring his broad, jowly face and his Australian accent, Butler quickly earned a tough-guy reputation among his Iraqi adversaries after taking over in July 1997 as executive chairman of UNSCOM, the U.N. special commission for dismantling Iraq's biological and chemical weapons programs.

"Mad City," a media-savvy thriller starring Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta, doesn't live up to its hype, and that's a very good thing.Heavily promoted as yet another jangly, supercharged melodrama of the ilk that assaults the senses almost as much as it offends the brain, "Mad City" turns out to be a surprisingly effective psychological drama.Hoffman, as a television correspondent with a wiggly moral compass, has finally found a role suited to his signature focus and intensity. For his part, Travolta, whose delivery naturally runs to the thick and slurry, is perfectly cast as a naif of limited comprehension.

WASHINGTON -- In response to the threat of mad cow disease, the Food and Drug Administration proposed yesterday banning the use of certain potentially infectious cattle parts in animal feed, but the agency brushed aside other safety measures it had appeared to endorse last year. The new rules, to take effect early next year, are expected to reduce the risk of infection by 90 percent, said Stephen F. Sundlof, director of the FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine. Mad cow disease, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy, is believed to be caused by abnormal proteins, known as prions, found in brain and nerve tissue.

The music of Richard Wagner's opera, "Tristan und Isolde," can affect you like a jingle; you can't get it out of your head. The difference is that it's not 60 seconds of harmless fluff. It's four hours of music, alternating between erotic yearning and erotic bliss, that continues to grind its gears in your ears long after it's over. Fortunate listeners get a persistent headache; less fortunate ones forget themselves and go mad.Performances of "Tristan" are rare. The current Washington Opera production, which opened last night at the Kennedy Center, is its first in almost 20 years.
