A decade ago, many people considered Jack Bailey the best of men. He was praised as a humanitarian who had aided thousands of Southeast Asian refugees, hailed as a hero who had given desperate people a chance to live. One missionary called him "the most genuinely compassionate man I ever met." Then that Jack Bailey seemed to all but vanish, sinking into the murky realm where Americans haunted by Vietnam try to raise the dead--the presumed dead, that is.

Despite its deceptively generic title (with its unfortunate association with the electronics chain), "The Good Guys" has very sophisticated ambitions. While films like this spring's "Cop Out" and the upcoming "The Other Guys" love to cross-pollinate police procedural with odd-couple bromance, satire with sentimental morality tale, the Fox show may be TV's first buddy-cop dramedy. Going for the same sort of sneak attack that launched "Glee," the network is pre-premiering "The Good Guys" on Wednesday before it begins its official run on June 7. Though it too is a genre mash-up, with over-the-top choreographed gunfights instead of big musical numbers, "The Good Guys" doesn't have quite the pop of "Glee."

Pat Tillman's death is a tragedy, as is the death of any serviceman in the performance of his duty (May 1). One cannot help but wonder, however, if, under identical circumstances, a Silver Star would have been awarded to an anonymous farm boy from Nebraska or a Mexican American youth from Arizona.

Re "Missteps Hurt Union in Supermarket Strike," Feb. 11: Recently, on the news, a union official harangued the pickets in front of a Vons to confront shoppers and "make their shopping experience miserable." With idiots like this calling the shots, the strike is bound to fail. Highly paid union officials have led the strikers to the edge of a precipice where there are only two choices: jump or go back to work. If anything good comes out of the strike it will be a complete housecleaning of the union hierarchy.

Although there are more than two weeks left in the Orange Empire Conference baseball race, first-place Rancho Santiago College could make it a pretty dull finish with two victories this week. The Dons (25-12 overall and 14-5 in conference play) hold a one-game lead over second-place Cypress and a two-game lead over Orange Coast. Golden West is 2 1/2 games back. Rancho Santiago plays at Orange Coast (25-10-1, 12-7) today at 2:30 p.m. and then plays host to Cypress (27-12, 13-6)

Rancho Santiago College hasn't fared well this season after having byes in its schedule, so Coach Don Sneddon hopes he has came up with a way around this week's break. The Dons, who finished second in the Orange Empire Conference, had Tuesday--their normal game day--off before beginning the first round of the Southern California Regionals today with a 2 p.m. home game against East Los Angeles. Rancho Santiago lost twice to last-place Riverside coming off byes this season. So instead of taking a break Tuesday, Sneddon held an intrasquad game.

Eddie Pierce made his second impressive relief appearance against Rancho Santiago this season and helped Orange Coast College to a 14-7 victory in an Orange Empire Conference baseball game Tuesday at OCC. Pierce replaced starter Ryan Thibault in the seventh inning with the bases loaded, one out and OCC leading, 8-6. Pierce, a sophomore left-hander, fell behind pinch-hitter Harvey Cotton, three balls and one strike, but came back to strike out...

The Justice Department is conducting an investigation into possible criminal wrongdoing by a Garden Grove man who produced a widely publicized photograph he claimed is of an American serviceman missing in Laos but is really, Pentagon officials determined recently, a picture of a German national. POW-MIA hunter Jack Bailey introduced a snapshot in 1990 that he maintained proves that an officer missing in action in Laos during the Vietnam War is still alive.

More photographs purporting to show that American servicemen who vanished during the Vietnam War are still alive have surfaced, raising new questions about the government's handling of the emotional POW-MIA issue as Washington prepares for new hearings on the subject. A controversial Orange County-based POW-MIA researcher contends that some photographs he obtained from a Laotian source last year show that an Army Special Forces member who disappeared July 6, 1971, is still alive.

Sure, the Orange Empire Conference baseball season ended 10 days ago. And sure, there already have been two rounds of the state playoffs with a third to start Friday. But, somehow, it doesn't seem all that different from the Orange Empire Conference season. First, Orange Coast and Rancho Santiago colleges played Saturday to decide which team would advance to the third round of the playoffs. Rancho Santiago won, 2-1, in the fifth meeting this season between the teams, both Orange Empire Conference members.

Like any pitcher, Jack Bailey of Rancho Santiago College knows the key to successful pitching is location. Pitchers are taught from the start to try and keep the ball close to the knees and away from the center of the plate. But for the first time in his career, Bailey is taking advantage of spotting the ball. In high school, he got by with a better-than-average fastball, and last season at Rancho Santiago College, he was complemented by strong support from his teammates.
