  • NAMES IN THE NEWS

              THE WHITE STUFF: In Baltimore, Milton Kent writes that
         "in a day and age when athletes invoke misplaced context
         when they are called on the stupid things they say," REGGIE
         WHITE "is bold enough to take the heat he is getting."  Kent
         adds that White is "not at all innocent," calling his
         remarks about minorities "reprehensible" (Baltimore SUN,
         4/30).  White is scheduled to speak today at a MI rally
         against a city ordinance that bans discrimination against
         gays and lesbians (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 4/30).
              OTHER NAMES: CNN's "Showbiz Today" profiled golfers
         PETER JACOBSEN, PAYNE STEWART and MARK LYE, who have
         released an album under the band name "Jake Trout and the
         Flounders."  Musicians making cameos on the multimedia CD

         "I like the thought of Dougie having a legacy, that he can
         make a difference and there's a reason for him being the way
         he is.  And if now we can make a difference because of it,
         then it's all that much better" ("GMA," ABC, 4/30).
