After reading Jerry Crowe's article, "Goal Line Stand," June 9, on Larry Smith and USC football program and its current problems, I came to the conclusion that the program is not only lacking in leadership but more importantly in integrity.

In this way, he shows his integrity and his concern for those players that follow the rules.

Leadership, if I understand it correctly, is something you don't appreciate until it's not there. Leadership is intangible. This causes a problem.

However, Denny Stolz, San Diego State's football coach, has been stewing about leadership within his team since before the season began. The heart and soul of his 1986 Western Athletic Conference champions had graduated.

Leadership--and how to create leaders--has become a hot topic among companies that are discovering that there is more to success than balancing the books. Leaders are in demand because employees now are "human capital." They don't work at their jobs, they are "empowered" to do them. And their boss is no longer a manager but a leader. Since the leadership craze hit, consultants and chief executive officers have turned into instant experts.

An uninspired and sometimes cowardly leadership in Washington has led the United States onto a path of decline that both political parties seem powerless to resolve, a panel of national political journalists said Monday. The panelists from the PBS television program "Washington Week in Review" said the leadership void has created a backlog of national problems in the areas of health care, education, drugs, the budget deficit, trade, international relations, transportation and the environment.
Sen. Bob Dole travels to campaign stops these days aboard a sleek jet called Leader's Ship, a name hardly chosen by accident. In the election campaign now taking shape, Republicans intend to pound relentlessly at what they see as the contrast between Dole's record of leadership and that of President Clinton. "It is the core issue of the campaign, even more than the obvious ideological ones," said William Kristol, a GOP strategist.
Tony Blair, the domestic affairs spokesman for the opposition Labor Party, on Saturday formally entered the race to be the party's next leader, and possibly Britain's next prime minister. Blair, who represents the "modernization wing" of the party, immediately became the odds-on favorite to win the post in a complex party vote next month.
