REDSKINS SCORE EARLY IN BATTLE FOR NEW STADIUM IN MARYLAND

     The Redskins "received a rare open-arms welcome from a local
government yesterday," with the approval of a zoning change that
could cut a year from the process of building a new stadium from
a Prince George's County Council committee, according to this
morning's WASHINGTON POST.  Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke wants
to build a 78,000-seat stadium in suburban Landover near the
Capital Beltway.  The full council is expected to vote on the
zoning changes in September (David Leonhardt, WASHINGTON POST,
7/28).
