Letter writer Alan Walden is right ("A stranger in his own land," Nov. 9). He is a stranger in his own land. Mr. Walden is having difficulty adjusting to a world where us white guys no longer rule. He and his Republican Party continue to try and put a round peg is a square hole. The country has changed before his very eyes, and there is no going back. Apparently, he has trouble accepting that. Mr. Walden wonders where the unity went. I wonder if that unity ever existed. The "Balkanized groups" that Mr. Walden refers to have been suppressed and discriminated against for many years.

All the postseason math - all the talk of magic numbers and scoreboard watching - is now a thing of the past. Just one win now separates the Orioles and their first American League East division title since 1997. Opening up their three-game series with the second-place Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night at Camden Yards, the Orioles' path to the postseason was simple: Win two of the games and punch a ticket to the playoffs. And the Orioles took one humongous step Monday toward winning the division with their 5-2 win over Toronto, giving the club an opportunity to clinch a division title with a win Tuesday.

With heavy hearts and a new slogan to help remember their fallen teammate, the Navy football team returned to practice Tuesday in Annapolis. It came 10 days after freshman slotback Will McKamey collapsed from a brain injury on a nearby field and was flown by medical helicopter to Maryland Shock Trauma, where he died last Tuesday night. It came the day after more than 50 midshipmen, team members and coaches, as well as athletic director Chet Gladchuk and Vice Admiral Mike Miller, the academy's superintendant, attended McKamey's funeral in Knoxville, Tenn.

Less than a week after announcing his candidacy, Baltimore lawyer Warren A. Brown announced last night he is withdrawing from the race for city state's attorney - saying that he has a family to raise and that unjustified personal attacks from opponents had "worn me down." "It was a vicious undertaking," Brown said. "I was slapped down. [Opponents] focused on things that had nothing to do with my ability to bring down crime." Brown said he will hold a news conference this afternoon outside his offices to discuss his decision.

DUETSElton John (MCA 10926)They say two heads are better than one. But two singers? Frankly, that depends on the pairing. Take Elton John's "Duets." When he's joined by performers eager to meet him on his own terms -- singers like k.d. lang, for example, whose input helps kick "Teardrops" into high gear, or George Michael, who takes the melodrama of "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" as seriously as John does -- the music sparkles. It's a shame there isn't more of that kind of chemistry here; for the most part, the album's most entertaining moments tend more toward such cast-against-type novelties as John getting down with Don Henley on the Temptations tune "Shakey Ground," or hearing a reprise of "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" with RuPaul in the Kiki Dee role (which, campy as it may be, is still more listenable than Dee's duet on "True Love")

No one is making this comparison yet, but No. 14 Georgetown's sophomore attack of Travis Comeau , Zac Guy and Davey Emala might remind some fans of a similar group that has grown up and played together. But Emala said no one within the program has articulated the theory that their potential mirrors the production of No. 3 Maryland's attack unit of seniors Grant Catalino , Ryan Young and Travis Reed. "I wouldn't say we're there yet," said Emala, a Baltimore native and Gilman graduate.

Pro basketball pundits and pollsters have been less than kind to the Washington Bullets in forecasts for their 1992-1993 season, which begins in Charlotte, N.C., tonight.Sport magazine ranked the Bullets 26th of 27 teams, ahead of only the expansion Minnesota Timberwolves. Four different publications picked the Bullets to finish seventh and last in the competitive Atlantic Division.But amid all this doom and gloom, the Bullets, who finished 25-57 last season, appear optimistic."The thing you have to remember is that all these negative forecasts were written back in July, when this team had an entirely different look," said general manager John Nash.

When Sunday night creeps in, Paul Zanger starts to get antsy, realizing that for the next five days, there will be no sleeping in and no kids playing in the yard until dark. He wants the floors vacuumed, the trash out, the beds made. He wants the kids helping with chores, and the house ready for the coming workweek. "It's something that just comes on," Zanger said. "It happens around the dinner hour, and whether that dinner hour is 4 o'clock or 8 o'clock, that's when it happens. ... I just get irritated."

A new survey finds that a third of American workers said they had fallen asleep or been very sleepy on the job in the past month, which should surprise absolutely no one. After all, this is a country where people actually brag about how little sleep they get. In fact, in the corporate world, working so hard that you don't have time to sleep generally translates into getting a big, fat raise. So when the National Sleep Foundation survey of 1,000 people found participants averaged 6 hours and 40 minutes of sleep on weeknights, even though they needed another 40 minutes to be at their best, it couldn't have come as a big shock.

Juan Dixon stood in front of a hundred wide-eyed schoolchildren. One by one he took their questions like lob passes. What number do you wear? What would you be doing if you didn't play basketball? Did anybody ever tell you that you were too small to play? Most of his answers were short and simple, but that last one, that one made him pause. "People didn't think I'd make it because I was so small," he said last week at the annual basketball camp he runs with Jimmy Patsos, the Loyola Greyhounds' coach.

ABOARD THE USS CARL VINSON - Rear Adm. Thomas E. Zelibor, commander of the Carl Vinson carrier group, went without sleep on the opening night of the war. He was gripped with anticipation while his aircraft waged combat from the Arabian Sea. "You play a `what if' game," Zelibor said yesterday. "`If this happens, what will I do next?' You have to do that to try and stay one step ahead. That occupied a lot of my zero hours of sleep that night." Sitting at a conference table in his ward room, Zelibor appeared relaxed even as planes took off and landed at a rapid pace on the deck above.
