So two Sundays ago I'm hanging with a friend, and I'm driving us to an out-of-the-way music shop he knows about, one that carries superb old vinyl. En route, I put on some music I want him to hear. "Check this out," I say, slipping in an advance copy of 4Hero's Play With the Changes CD. The languid music fills the car, complementing the lazy afternoon of sporadic snow showers. We ride in silence for a few miles before Jeff speaks up: "This is making me sleepy." That isn't the usual effect of 4Hero's music.

WASHINGTON -- Former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush deceived the public about their knowledge of the Iran-contra arms-for-hostages deal, according to memoirs being published tomorrow by one of the central figures in the event, former national security adviser Robert C. McFarlane.Mr. McFarlane says he briefed President Reagan and then-Vice President Bush from the start of the deal in 1985, 17 months earlier than Mr. Bush admits he knew about it.The comments are noteworthy because the question of Mr. Bush's knowledge has focused for years on whether he was present during two White House meetings in late 1985 and early 1986 at which the Iran-contra deal was discussed.

In August 1993, independent counsel Lawrence Walsh issued his final report on the Iran-contra scandal. His ultimate findings made the front page of many newspapers, but by no means all, for journalists and citizens alike were weary of the story after seven years of partisan finger-pointing, fragmentary reporting, internecine recrimination and never-ending attempts at spin control. The Walsh report, in theory, should have put Iran-contra to rest, allowing the participants in the scandal and the public to get on with their lives.

WASHINGTON -- President Ronald Reagan's national security adviser, Robert C. McFarlane, stunned prosecutors yesterday by repeatedly telling a federal judge that his testimony in Oliver L. North's trial had been inevitably "colored" by accounts of the Iran-contra scandal that North gave before Congress in July 1987.As a result of the testimony by McFarlane, a crucial witness in North's 1989 trial, the two remaining Iran-contra criminal convictions of North appeared to be imperiled.Yesterday's hearing stemmed from a July 1990 ruling by a District of Columbia appeals court panel, which concluded that no one had proven that testimony at North's criminal trial had not been tainted by North's appearance before a joint House and Senate investigative committee in July 1987, which was broadcast nationally.

WASHINGTON -- A federal judge voiced deep doubts yesterday that the Iran-contra prosecutor can salvage any criminal case against former White House aide Oliver L. North, but he agreed to allow another -- probably final -- attempt.U.S. District Judge Gerhard A. Gesell told Michael R. Bromwich, a lawyer for the prosecutor, that there was only a "slight possibility" that even "the ablest group of lawyers in the world" could save the case in the wake of a sweeping legal victory for Mr. North in the federal appeals court here 10 months ago.When Mr. Bromwich promised to give it "our best shot," the judge responded with a lecture about the legal difficulties ahead and said some sympathetic things about Mr. North, noting his years "under the gun" of the criminal case growing out of the Iran-contra scandal.

For more than 65 minutes, the regular-season finale between Bel Air and C. Milton Wright had all the appearances of a scoreless tie.It turned out to be more physical than artistic, and it took a fluke happenstance to set up Matt McFarlane goal for a 1-0 Wright victory.The result enabled the Mustangs to tie Fallston for the Harford County championship with 6-1 records. Bel Air and North Harford finished 5-2. All three drew first-round byes in the regional tournament and will not play until next week -- Wright at Kenwood Tuesday, and Bel Air at Fallston Wednesday night.

Dear fellow patriot,You've heard a lot of nonsense recently about future U.S. senator Ollie North, mostly from liberals and the media, about how Ollie's a liar and should have been in prison with Marion Barry, except Ollie got off on a technicality.Technically, a lot of us North supporters don't actually believe in criminals getting off on legal technicalities -- if we're honest, a lot of us aren't that comfortable with the Bill of Rights altogether, excluding, of course, the right to bear arms -- but this was different.
