In the end, the very thing that was meant to help a landmark Annapolis restaurant survive, killed it. The thick steel scaffolding put up a year ago to bolster the caving fa?ade of Riordan's Saloon, a popular place for local residents and tourists, scared customers away, owner Mike Riordan says. After 30 years at a premier spot near City Dock, Riordan's is closing tomorrow. "People see the scaffolding and they think that we're either under construction or closed," said Riordan, a former NBA star who was on the New York Knicks' 1970 championship team and later the old Bullets in Baltimore and Washington (now the Wizzards)

LOS ANGELES - Despite the Aug. 9 deadline for entering the recall race for California governor, the two most prominent potential Republican candidates, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Mayor Richard J. Riordan of Los Angeles, continued their strange, silent dance yesterday. The two, who are friends and apparent political allies, have been talking to each other and huddling with political consultants for several weeks, trying to decide which of them will run, if either. Through spokesmen, they have made it clear that they will not run against each other.

When the last game is over and Terry Riordan has scored his final goal, the Johns Hopkins senior attackman will pack his clothes and try to catch an off-Broadway play.Not to watch, but to participate."I've always been a ham, and I've always wanted to try acting," said Riordan. "I know about a school in New York City, and hopefully I can get an audition, get in and further my studies. But that's down the road a little. Right now I've got some immediate goals to achieve."The first and foremost is leading Hopkins to a national championship, something the Blue Jays haven't done since 1987.

LOS ANGELES -- It says much about modern government that one of the nation's most successful elected officials is one of the least powerful. And it says something about political leadership today that that official is this city's mayor, Richard Riordan, who has a personal library of 40,000 books and is given to citing Maimonides (d. 1204) on "the eighth level of giving" (giving that makes the recipient self-sufficient). Lately he has been coping with a multilayered controversy about gasoline-powered leaf blowers.

More than a few Baltimoreans feel a certain emptiness and a twinge of nostalgia at the death of Bill Riordan.Riordan, who died Sunday at 71 in Naples, Fla., was controversial, and he had his critics. But the man brought big-time tennis excitement to Maryland from 1963 to 1976 when he chaired the U.S. National Indoor Championships in Salisbury."Bill was a promoter," veteran Bare Hills Tennis Club pro Maury Schwartzman said yesterday. "He put on that tournament every February for a week and a lot of people would go down to Salisbury for a few days as a sort of midwinter break.

As the Republican Party's most prominent potential candidates kept silent on whether they would join the race to topple California Gov. Gray Davis, the incumbent struggled yesterday to keep fellow Democrats from abandoning him. There were signs that Republican actor Arnold Schwarzenegger would bow out of the race any day, and the other GOP favorite, Richard Riordan, was still not ready to say whether he would run, an adviser to the former Los Angeles mayor...

WASHINGTON -- Former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan was forgiving the other day when the question came up of President Bush's lack of help in Mr. Riordan's losing GOP primary race against businessman Bill Simon. Mr. Bush had urged him to run. Although the White House did spread the word that Mr. Bush preferred Mr. Riordan, he never campaigned for him. "The president can't come out for somebody in the primary," Mr. Riordan said. "That would have been bad policy." Indeed, one of the traditional rules in party politics is that an incumbent president doesn't take sides in such intramural contests, even when, as in this case, Mr. Bush wanted Mr. Riordan as governor, presumably to improve his own chances of carrying the state with the most Electoral College votes in 2004.

OPPONENTS OF campaign finance reform should be rethinking their opposition in the aftermath of Enron and California's recent GOP primary. In each case, campaign money wrought perverse results. By spending $10 million on attack ads during California's Republican primary, Democratic Gov. Gray Davis dismantled the campaign of former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, a Republican. As the more moderate GOP contender, Mr. Riordan looked like a potent challenger in moderate-to-liberal California.

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - Chatting in a coffee shop with his wife and two reporters, Richard Riordan is asked if he's enjoying his unexpectedly rough run for governor of California. "I haven't had so much fun," he says dryly, "since my dog died." The 71-year-old Riordan, hammered from all sides by TV attack ads, has seen his big lead in the polls slip away. Suddenly, the former Los Angeles mayor is no longer a safe bet to survive next week's GOP primary election. A social liberal, Riordan wants to fashion what he calls a "new Republican Party" in the nation's most populous state.

From the flood of fiction surging into bookshops, very occasionally an extraordinary new voice emerges. The latest to startle me is that of Vince Passaro, with his Violence, Nudity, Adult Content (Simon & Schuster, 300 pages, $24). Though readers of Esquire, GQ and other such periodicals may be familiar with his short fiction and essays, this is Passaro's first book, a novel of unusual energy and intensity. The novel is a three-part fugue, narrated from the vantage point of a lawyer on the verge of rising from associate to partner in an aggressive Manhattan law firm.
