Turn on your television at any moment, and, more likely than not, there he is. Coiffed and designer-clad, every hair and attitude in place, Pat O'Brien could win a gold medal in a new Olympic biathlon of ubiquity and style. When he's not appearing on the 11:30 p.m., Lettermanesque take on the day's Olympics events on CBS (WBAL, Channel 11), he's doing celebrity-style reporting on the games for his other employer, "Entertainment Tonight."Apparently this correspondent never blinks, much less sleeps -- we were able to interview him by phone yesterday afternoon at CBS' broadcasting center in Albertville, France.

Artist and muralist Pat O'Brien confronts a bare room as she would an engineering project. She takes measurements, makes scale drawings, and plans precisely the colors, fabrics and furnishings she will employ. It all makes perfect sense for the former electrical engineer who used to design systems for military aircraft when she worked at AAI Corp. in Cockeysville. O'Brien's artistic talent will be on display at the Baltimore Symphony Associates decorators' show house, which opens Sunday, April 29. Hers will be the first interior space visitors encounter as they tour the Eck House in Baltimore County's Cromwell Valley Park.

Republicans traveling to Houston for our party's convention have at least one thing in common with the Democrats who just returned from New York: We all have the unenviable chore of explaining why the band is playing ''O, Christmas Tree'' while our home-grown political stars are introduced to the assembled delegates.For a state that has enough parochial pride to designate a state tree, flower, fossil, crustacean, insect, ship and dog, we sure do have a lousy song. And no acceptable alternative . . . or so I once thought.

If the first few games are any indication, "Road To The Final Four" may indeed be the hit of the anywhere-but-Broadway season. This is heartening, especially since CBS is shoving 35 hours of hoops our way this weekend.Generally, after all the David vs. Goliath nonsense dies down and the top-rated teams get rolling after usual doddering starts, opening-round pairings have a tendency to resemble intra-squad games. Not the Georgetown, North Carolina, Seton Hall and Arkansas opening acts yesterday.

As an actor, Ronald Reagan never worked for the director he often quoted when he was president: Frank Capra, whose philosophy of action-packed charity in Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936) reflected, in Reagan's mind, his administration's economic policies. But Reagan's own big-screen presence as a genial, unpretentious and capable guy - a presence he transferred with more seasoned authority to the small screen as the host (and occasional star) of TV's General Electric Theatre and Death Valley Days - fit the image he wanted people to have of his kind of America.

A new movie about two priests -- one homosexual and the other heterosexual -- who break their vows of celibacy has touched off strong, emotional and conflicting reactions within the Roman Catholic Church.The issues raised by British director Antonia Bird in "Priest" go well beyond the long-simmering, intramural debates over the church's clergy requirements and its doctrinal stands on sexual morality.Recent efforts in some church quarters to prevent the movie from being seen came under predictable attack.
