ONE MAN'S modest New Year resolutions:* For openers, I intend to lose 10 pounds and completely alter my eating habits. I will carefully trim the fat from my steaks. I'll peel the skin from my chicken and eat white meat instead of dark. In restaurants, I'll resist the nice hot loaf of French bread and order only from the side of the menu marked "For the Calorie Conscious."* No more desserts, either. Ever again.* Each morning I'll jump out of bed at 6, drop to the floor and -- off 100 push-ups and sit-ups.

Let's hack away all the posturing, all the talk about difficult decisions and a replay of Frank Robinson's brilliant playing career. The 1989 baseball season doesn't live here anymore.Purely, simply, the move had to be made. And it was unnecessary for general manager Roland Hemond to keep saying, "Poor Frank, poor Frank," yesterday when Robinson was ordered to vacate the home manager's office at Memorial Stadium.This was not a hard decision. The situation fairly screamed for something to be done.

THE CRITICS WISH us to unwrite what has already been written. Lawrence Bell never had trouble paying his bills, and Carl Stokes never dropped out of college. And so on. As though unwriting it would un-do the acts themselves. As though none of this connects with the business of running the city of Baltimore."You got any secrets you want to get off your chest?" Martin O'Malley was asked the other day."No," he said, laughing. "I pay my bills on time, and I have my college diploma."He sounded like a man delighted to be standing out of the line of fire.

Rick was one of the few straight men in America who had no problem admitting he liked show tunes. In fact, he loved them. He would sit there in the office all day and sing. He had a good voice, and a rotating repertoire, so he didn't repeat himself. I didn't mind. I like show tunes. It was like sitting next to a radio. Occasionally, though, he would burst forth with lyrics that were completely inappropriate for his gender, and for tender ears. That funny, blue line from A Chorus Line would shock us all into laughter.

Boston.-- We are entering one of those dangerous moments in our country's history. I am not talking about the mounting deficit or the ongoing crisis in the Middle East. The scariest fact of the hour is that the commander-in-chief of the United States of America is about to boot up and log-on to the computer world.Poppy at the keyboard? A mouse in the House? Mr. Bush as a beginner in BASIC? George and the user-friendly software? Do I see another children's book in the making or a horror story?
