Sure, we're a little ashamed of our prurient fascination with the latest gossip about Nancy Reagan, but, hey, there are two serious points here. On the evidence of Kitty Kelley's unauthorized hatchet job: (1) The Reagans were hypocrites, presuming to stand for family virtues even as they turned the White House into Peyton Place on the Potomac, and (2) Mrs. Reagan's "petticoat presidency" usurped the powers of the man we elected.So what else is new?The stuff about Frank Sinatra is interesting, though based on innuendo.

Whether you adore him or would just as soon never see him again, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has shown a knack for self-mockery. Admit it, you've chuckled at the Sprint commercial in which a badly disguised Manning extols the virtues of cell phone video by saying, "Like Peyton Manning! That guy's pretty good, if you like 6-foot-5, 230-pound quarterbacks [with a] laser rocket arm." Does Manning need a script and many takes to pull off such moments? We'll find out tonight when he becomes the 22nd athlete and 25th sports figure (not counting professional wrestlers or actors from the Rocky films)

LAST YEAR on cable television, I saw a sex and hypocrisy double-header: "Peyton Place" followed by "Return to Peyton Place."The first movie begins with shots of the village churches, which do a brisk business on Sunday morning.Then it shows what the sanctimonious churchgoers do the rest of the week -- the drunken lout who rapes his stepdaughter; the unwed mother who invents a dead husband to legitimize her child; the self-deluding mother whose refusal to acknowledge incest in her family leads first to murder, then to suicide.

MIAMI -- Peyton Manning was basking in the sun at Pro Player Stadium, where he'll conclude his college football career tomorrow, when the question caught him by surprise. Did he take any solace in the fact that, more often than not, the Heisman Trophy has become an albatross for the NFL aspirations of quarterbacks?"I guess so, maybe," Manning said with a grin, before turning dead serious. "Look, I've had a fairly good career, but after it's over, it's over. You move on."The only reason I ever wanted to win [the Heisman]

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Peyton Manning can handle the pressure of being called the best college football player in the country. He can handle the responsibilities that come with playing quarterback for the nation's fourth-ranked team. And he can handle the burden of being the son of a Southern sports hero.What gives him trouble are people naming their babies after him."That's strange for me," Manning said the other day. "I kind of called my dad on that one. He said, 'I don't know; they only named dogs and cats after me.' "Manning has had nearly three dozen newborns named after him in the past 14 months, including six with three different spellings at the University of Tennessee Medical Center since January.

WASHINGTON -- Twenty years ago, a young military lawyer defending an Air Force pilot on a drug charge landed himself on 60 Minutes, exposing widespread flaws in the Air Force drug-testing system that led to an overhaul of the program. Today, the same country lawyer with the soft Southern drawl and sharp wit is again making national headlines by raising provocative questions about a major military scandal. But now, Lindsey Graham is a U.S. senator from South Carolina, and he wants answers about a far more explosive case, the abuse of Iraqi detainees by U.S. soldiers at the Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad.

Clarifications to the Legend of Mama Cass Elliot:No. 1. Mama Cass Elliot did not die choking on a ham sandwich.No. 2. Mama Cass Elliot was hit on the head by a pipe, but it did not have the effect, as the Mamas and Papas repeated ad infinitum, of expanding her vocal range.No. 3. When Mama Cass Elliot was a sophomore, she didn't plan to go to Swarthmore, as the lyrics to "Creeque Alley" claim. Goucher was a more likely choice, but it didn't rhyme.No. 4. Mama Cass Elliot's daughter was not immaculately conceived as Mama Cass Elliot announced.
