Like a widower who can't let go, Dave Powers makes sure a visitor sees the photos on his office walls. Pictures of him with Jack Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy and the children. Snapshots of a legacy that lives on. "You've gotta see this one," he says, pointing to a color photo of Caroline Kennedy at her 1986 wedding, standing next to Powers and her new husband, with the inscription: "In between my two favorite men." There's a picture of Powers playing with an infant John F. Kennedy Jr.

Dave Henderson's fifth hit of the game, a double down the left-field line against reliever Scott Bailes, broke an 11th-inning tie and lifted the Oakland Athletics to an 8-5 victory over the Angels Tuesday night at Anaheim Stadium. Henderson's hit bounced between Angel third baseman Gary Gaetti and the bag, scoring Mike Gallego, who had singled, and Lance Blankenship, who had walked.

Never before has quality been so important to the car-buying public. And never have the quality claims of the auto makers been so confusing. Is quality "Job 1," as Ford insists? Does an "Advantage-Chrysler" really exist? What about that "relentless pursuit of perfection" at Lexus? Yet the confusion becomes even more frustrating when it results from the rankings developed and issued by the most famous--and most prestigious--arbiter of automotive quality in America: J. D. Power & Associates.

Judith Campbell Exner, the Los Angeles socialite whose affair with President John F. Kennedy embroiled her in decades of vilification as the first to shatter the Camelot myth, has died. She was 65 when she died Friday at City of Hope hospital in Duarte, and had spent the last decades of her life battling both the cancer that ultimately killed her and the speculation that sprang up after she was forced to reveal to a Senate committee her relationship with the assassinated president.

Has the bubble burst on Qualcomm Inc.'s meteoric stock? Conventional wisdom says yes, given the wireless firm's torrid rise to $406.13 recently--in the manner of runaway Internet issues--and the subsequent three-day drop of more than $35 so far this week. After all, this is a stock that traded at just $27.72 at the start of 1999--and with today's close of $342.88 (down $20.38 in heavy Nasdaq trading), the shares have still jumped more than 1,000% for the year.

You've got to like cantankerousness to enjoy "The Redd Foxx Show." That's what Foxx plays. It worked well enough in "Sanford and Son," but, in his new ABC comedy series, premiering Saturday at 8 p.m. (Channels 7, 3, 10 and 42), it doesn't jibe with the premise. Foxx is cast as Al Hughes, a widower who lives above the small coffee shop and newsstand that he owns in New York City, with one cook-waitress (Rosana De Soto) in his employ.
