  • MAMA, DON'T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE GOP ATHLETES

              The GOP held a national gathering featuring ten
         prospective Republican presidential candidates in Cedar
         Rapids, IA, over the weekend.  Packers DE REGGIE WHITE was a
         guest of Family Research Council President GARY BAUER and
         the AP reported that the two "mugged for cameras, then
         hugged, easily the weekend's oddest looking couple" (AP,
         6/14).  In Cedar Rapids, the GAZETTE's Kueter & Lowenstein
         reported that one of the event's "biggest receptions" was
         given to White "who delivered the invocation" (GAZETTE,
         6/13).  Bauer, drawing "cheers" from the delegates, said, "I
         stood with Reggie White.  No to same-sex marriages!  No to
         saying that way of life is acceptable!" (N.Y. TIMES, 6/14). 
              IS LARGENT'S RIGHTFUL SPOT ON THE TICKET? Former
         Seahawks WR STEVE LARGENT (R-OK) served as the event's emcee
         and the TULSA WORLD reported that Largent's presence in IA
         "has revived talk heard often when he first entered
         political life that his future might include a spot on a
         national ticket" (TULSA WORLD, 6/13).
