If Columbia Pictures has its way, Madonna will play Debra Winger's younger sister in Penny Marshall's "A League of Their Own," the story of an all-women's baseball team set in the 1940s. And if talks with Tom Hanks continue to go well, he'll reunite with Marshall with whom he collaborated on "Big" to play the team's coach.Whether Madonna and Columbia can come to terms is a matter of speculation. "The studio is offering $1," quips one person privy to the negotiations. "She's asking $1 billion."

Last month, I received emails from two people I know but who don't know each other: one a close friend and Second Amendment supporter, and the other a regular reader who sends me news items she believes the "liberal media" are willfully suppressing. Each sent me a story link about recent U.S. Department of Homeland Security purchases of huge stockpiles of ammunition, including hollow-point bullets. A Forbes.com column penned by Larry Bell, replete with conspiratorial overtones, suggested that the Obama administration is up-arming itself while trying to disarm the citizenry.

For some performances, a large paycheck or even an Academy Award nomination simply isn't adequate recompense; a Medal of Valor would be far more appropriate.That's true of Debra Winger in "A Dangerous Woman." As Martha, a mildly retarded adult trying to cope with the frustrations of a world that talks faster and knows more, she's absolutely heroic. Shedoesn't act, she becomes. She doesn't pretend, she is.Think of all the vaunted "turns" you've seen -- Meryl Streep's Sophie, for example, Jane Fonda in "Klute," current flavor-of-the-month Emma Thompson in "Howards End" -- and recollect how even at their most flamboyant these actresses seemed to preserve a little bit of themselves, a little sliver of ironic distance.

When, at long last, will people understand that the left is boring? The question came to mind as I was dipping in and out of Oliver Stone's miasmic 700-plus-page tome. I'll never read the whole thing, and not because it's a left-wing screed full of slimy distortions about the evils of the United States (though that doesn't help). It's that it's boring. Mr. Stone and co-author Peter Kuznick call their book "The Untold History of the United States," except, again, it isn't. This story has been told countless times before.

A couple of tacos, a burrito, a Gordita and an ice cream taco for desert. Multiply by five and you have one happy offensive line and a poor running back. After Atholton running back Matt Winger ran for a school-record 341 yards and four touchdowns in the Raiders' win over Rockville on Friday night, the senior treated the guys who paved his way with dinner on Saturday night. "We went to Taco Bell, and even though it's not that expensive, it's the thought that counts," said 6-foot, 230-pound senior center Travis Fales, who estimated Winger's bill was about $35. "Even though my name isn't in the newspapers, I know his is and we know if we didn't block, it couldn't happen."

Atholton senior running back Matt Winger always makes sure to give credit where it's due. He'll talk up his trusted offensive line to no end. He makes certain to point out how senior fullback Patrick Hayden recklessly crashes through anybody who gets in his way. And he shows appreciation to coach Chuck Fales each week for giving him the opportunity to make a difference. It's not until the team gets together in the film room one Saturday morning in mid-September - eating six dozen doughnuts brought in by Winger while reviewing the Raiders' 40-22 win over Rockville - that he reluctantly gets around to giving some due to the guy who runs the ball for Atholton.

Matt Winger gave Atholton coach Chuck Fales a game to remember last night. Winger, a senior, rushed for 341 yards and four touchdowns as the host Raiders beat Rockville, 40-22, squaring both teams' records at 1-1. "I've been coaching 26 years, and I've never had a back go for 341 yards," said Fales. "He had a heck of a game, and the offensive line blocked really well for him." Winger broke loose for touchdowns on runs from scrimmage of 77 and 80 yards on his first two carries in the opening quarter.

Tailback Matt Winger rushed for 289 yards on 24 carries, along with four touchdowns, while linebacker Tochi Odocha led the defense with 11 tackles to lead the host Atholton Raiders over the Howard Lions, 28-12, yesterday in football. "Matt is a very unselfish player, he gives all the credit to his offensive line," Raiders coach Chuck Fales said. "Teams know that when they play us, number three [Winger] is going to get the ball, so far they haven't been able to stop him." The effort made Winger Atholton's all-time single-season rushing leader with 1,225 yards.

Considering everything he has been through, Charlie Davies looks, acts and sounds in remarkably good shape. The scars are evident, both physical and mental, but the resilience he has shown — not to mention courage when he so easily could have given up — are testimony to the player and the man. Sixteen months have passed since Davies, 24, was involved in a horrific car accident that left the vehicle torn asunder, one female passenger...

You don't have to be a crusading right-winger to recognize that University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, who compared the victims of the 9/11 World Trade Center attack to Nazis, is an extremist, an ideologue whose scholarship is less than objective. Nor do you have to be a flame-throwing left-winger to agree that the university where he was once director of the ethnic studies department shouldn't have ditched him the way it did. It needed to do much, much more. Two short years ago, Mr. Churchill's labeling of trade center victims as "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi in charge of sending Jews to death camps, provoked a heated yet necessary national debate on the state of scholarship at American universities.

Atholton running back Matt Winger had experienced both his school's first playoff berth in 20 years and its initial playoff win primarily because of his school-record rushing totals. Last night, Winger experienced another first in a Class 2A South final loss to visiting defending state champion Potomac: A zero on his team's side of the scoreboard. Winger was held to a season-low 26 yards in a 12-0 shutout defeat. And as a defensive back, neither he nor a Raiders defense that included Jeff Easterly (one sack)

You would have thought, based on their brilliant second-half performance Friday night, which led to a 19-12 win over Mount Hebron, that Atholton football coach Chuck Fales gave one of the great halftime speeches in history. After all, the Raiders spotted the Vikings a 12-0 lead, then came out of the locker room with scores on three consecutive second-half possessions. So, how about it, coach? Did you invoke the ghosts of George Gipp, Red Grange and Bronko Nagurski to get Atholton fired up?
