     CONSTITUTION, 3/31)....GENE SISKEL, on DENNIS RODMAN's
     performance in "Double Team," after the world premiere in

     TODAY, 4/2).  Rodman, on "Double Team": "I expect the worst. 
     So if I get some good reviews, great, if I get some bad
     reviews, I'm right back where I started" ("Access Hollywood,"

     you win for winning the World Championship?"  Lipinski: "I
     think I got some prize money."  Letterman: "How much?"
     Lipinski: "I have no clue."  Letterman: "You oughta' look
