For nearly a quarter-century, he's been there for people facing the highest-stakes puzzles of their lives. Why shouldn't Pat Sajak help us crack workaday riddles, too?

Or why - and I'm just throwing this one out there - would anyone want a ceramic Dalmatian? Sajak plumbs mini-mysteries of daily life in two-minute commentaries, called "I've Been Thinking ...

The scene is familiar to millions of television viewers - Pat Sajak calling names and cracking jokes by a spinning wheel. But yesterday, Sajak, who has hosted Wheel of Fortune for a quarter of a century, found himself not in a Hollywood studio but a county government building in Glen Burnie. And his assistant was not the beaming Vanna White, but someone a bit more businesslike: Anne Arundel County Sheriff Ron Bateman. Sajak, who has a home in Severna Park, and the sheriff taped an episode of Anne Arundel County's Most Wanted, which airs on local public access cable.

So, do you believe that "Seinfeld" news?No, not the fact that the Four Horsemen of Neuroticness - Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer - are finally riding off into the sunset after this season. That probably should have happened a couple of seasons ago, before the show stopped being really funny.No, I'm talking about the fact that the NBC brass - the same geniuses who sent Letterman packing a few years back - proudly announced that they were ready to pay Jerry Seinfeld $5 million per episode to crank out one more season of shows about nothing.
