GOVERNMENT officials may be staffing the borders to prevent foot-and-mouth disease from reaching these shores, but there's been no stopping Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill's rampant foot-in-mouth ailment from embarrassing the Bush administration. Mr. O'Neill, a blunt and demanding former corporate CEO, keeps getting himself in hot water when he speaks. What comes out may not be in line with administration policy - or common sense. He has insulted a Democratic senator, been lectured on proper Senate etiquette by another, infuriated market traders, panicked currency investors, alarmed bond traders, angered conservative Republicans, bollixed the administration's tax-cut message and thumbed his nose at his own flagrant conflict of interest.

NOW THE Republicans throw slanderous new questions at John Kerry's Vietnam record, and for Wayne Gilchrest it must feel like one more shot in the chest. Gilchrest and Kerry were in combat when George W. Bush was in hiding. The two of them, the Democrat Kerry and the Republican Gilchrest, understand war in ways that this president only pretends to know. Yet the White House again visits Vietnam, and shame on them. Shame on them, first, for their stupidity. Just when they had bluffed their way past the president's empty war record, they bring back Vietnam by questioning Kerry's.

Does the name Canh Oxelson mean anything to you? Probably not. But you would do a double take if the 29-year-old Harvard graduate student walked into the room. He's a dead ringer for star golfer Tiger Woods. Although 4 years older than Woods, Oxelson looks strikingly similar - large eyes, a 6-foot-2 frame and a big smile. Both are also half Asian and African-American. Oxelson's mother is Vietnamese and Woods' mother is Thai, while both their fathers are black. At first, Oxelson used his looks primarily to gain tables at fancy restaurants and entry into celebrity parties.

Sid Fernandez couldn't pick a better time to get back on track.Fernandez, who is 1-1 with a 4.57 ERA in his past three starts, faces the American League East-leading New York Yankees tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Camden Yards with the Orioles one game away from first place.The veteran left-hander has yet to find some consistency even though the Orioles have supported him with 16 runs in those three starts.His biggest problem has been keeping the ball in the park. Giving up five home runs in his last three starts, Fernandez now leads the staff with 14 homers allowed.

If it's true that left-handed pitchers have more lives than the average cat, as many will attest, then Tom Bolton is one of the more recent examples.At 32, after having been discarded by three teams, Bolton finally may have found the niche for which he is best suited. In the process, especially over the past few days, he has shown in a couple of ways the value of having a second left-hander available to work out of the bullpen.And that value, strangely enough, may have been demonstrated best during a game in which Bolton did not appear.

CONVENTIONAL WISDOM has it that Paul O'Neill, the treasury secretary, is the wrong man for the job with Wall Street in such flux. Sad to say, conventional wisdom is right. But just look at the reasoning behind it: The markets, we are told, need someone at the Treasury who can speak their language. An authoritative figure with a background in finance would give the Bush administration some credibility now that it's so badly needed. Jittery investors want a can-do man at the helm, no matter how much this looks like a can't-be-done sort of moment.

SOWETO, South Africa - Walking the muddy streets of this poor black township, they make the most unlikely duo. Irish rocker Bono, the Grammy Award-winning lead singer of U2, looks like he has slept in his clothes. He's unshaven, his hair a black mop, his eyes hidden behind his blue wraparound sunglasses. By his side, the no-nonsense Republican Paul H. O'Neill, a former corporate executive turned U.S. Treasury secretary, is decked out in a well-pressed gray suit as if he were about to step into a board meeting.

WASHINGTON -- It is a law of the political universe from which, due to an oversight on the part of Providence, George Bush is not exempt: When a Democrat wins a presidential election he is said to have received a mandate to keep his promises, but when a Republican wins he is said to have acquired a duty to be "statesmanlike" by trimming his promises to suit "bipartisanship." However, Mr. Bush's Cabinet selections communicate his conviction that the election, although close, awarded him 100 percent of the presidency, and he intends to use all of it. The selections also bespeak his confidence and conservatism.

NEW YORK -- What's wrong with this picture?The volatile owner has rarely been heard, let alone seen. The intense manager is a model of quiet decorum. With one notable exception, the stars are a bunch of "Johnny-Come-Latelys."For the most part, this is a collection of individuals that appears as bland as the gray uniforms they wear on the road. Can this really be the New York Yankees?Is this a modern version of the team that made pinstripes famous and celebrated championships as regularly as birthdays?

NEW YORK -- New York Yankees manager Joe Torre was right. He said last Saturday that it wasn't realistic to expect his club to catch the first-place Orioles, and he didn't know the half of it.He didn't know that his team would fall apart, both literally and figuratively, over the next six days. The Yankees were swept by the last-place Philadelphia Phillies and swamped in the first two games of a supposedly crucial four-game series against the Orioles -- last night's 13-9 loss dropping them 8 1/2 games out of first place with just 23 games to go.He couldn't have known that pitching ace David Cone would suffer a setback in his recovery from shoulder soreness, or that catcher Joe Girardi would be forced out of the lineup with a hand injury or that disaster would find another way to strike in the first inning of last night's defeat.
