  • THOMPSON ABANDONS QUEST FOR GAMBLING LICENSE

         Georgetown men's basketball coach John Thompson will
    withdraw his application for a NV gaming license and will pull
    out of a deal to make him a 10% owner of slot machines at Las
    Vegas' McCarran Airport.  Thompson said he did so on the request
    of Georgetown President Rev. Leo O'Donovan.  Thompson:  "It was
    never my intention in any way to create any grief for him"
    ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 3/20).  Tony Kornheiser lauds Thompson's
    decision: "Why forfeit any of his stature on something like
    this?" (WASH. POST, 3/21).
