TODAY, Columbus, N.M., is a small town in the southwest corner of the state with a population of 1,200. But 85 years ago, it was ground zero for an international terrorist attack that left U.S. citizens dead and wounded and most of the town destroyed. The terrorists were led by a marginalized, cult-like figure similar to the major suspect behind the recent, horrible terror attacks in New York and Washington. And the effective U.S. response to the 1916 attack can provide a framework for what will work now. All-out war does not crush a band of terrorists, but resolute action will.

All those cats and chicks be-bopping and freight-train hopping; all those beret-wearing-hipsters in fog-induced hazes. Jack was Beat. Beat in life and Beat in words and, you know what, my incense-burning-cigarette-smoking-and-wh atever-else-you're-rolling-in-that-button-down-peacoat, friends? Beat in baseball.

Talk about the ultimate fantasy baseball game. The New York Public Library acquired the archives of Beat Generation novelist Jack Kerouac last week - and among the documents are records of an elaborate league Kerouac nurtured from youth, dating at least to the mid-1930s. "This should give you an idea of the breadth, and the richness, of his imaginary life," said Isaac Gewirtz, curator of the library's Berg Collection of English and American Literature. Kerouac's rosters included Lou Gehrig and Pancho Villa - a center fielder to Kerouac - as well as imaginary heroes Homer Landry, Charley Custer and Luis Tercerero.

THE SHUTTERING of Yale's Skull and Bones Society by alumni aghast at the very notion of admitting persons of the female persuasion reminds us of an issue that has yet to make its way to the forefront of United States-Mexico relations, this despite the fact that George Bush is a Bonesman.Or to be more precise, the president is a reputed Bonesman, since to admit membership would be a gross violation of one of the society's many codes.But we digress.Back to relations with Mexico. It seems that many years ago the skull of Pancho Villa, the fiery Mexican revolutionary general, was stolen from its tomb by suspected Yanqui pranksters.
