COOKE CONTINUES TO FIGHT FOR FAST TRACK APPROVAL FOR MD SITE

     Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke continues to battle for fast-
track approval for a new stadium site in Landover, MD.  But he is
hearing opposition from groups who want guarantees that "blacks
get a hefty slice of the economic pie," according to this
morning's WASHINGTON POST.  The site is located in Prince
George's County, which has an African-American majority
population.  Opposition groups say they fear Cooke's push for
quick approval "would circumvent their ability to review the
project."  Cooke attorney Gerard Evans called those protesting
"anti-everything organizations."  Evans:  "Frankly, I would have
been shocked if they did support the stadium" (Terry Neal,
WASHINGTON POST, 8/17).
