Robert Moses creates jewel-like dances built on classical form and enhanced by swivels, quirks and reverent pauses. Whether he's using richly romantic taped music or rap (his selection of which is equally romantic), his carefully crafted lyricism contains moments of calm for reflecting, questioning or gathering strength.

For the man who has everything--two Olympic gold medals, the world record and a nine-year winning streak--winning the overall championship in the Mobil Grand Prix would seem like a modest goal. But Edwin Moses was determined to do it this summer, if for no other reason, because it was there. Actually, there was one other reason, a $35,000 check, although, considering Moses' income bracket, that didn't mean as much to him as it would to most other track and field athletes.

Ed Moses spends a great deal of time at about 7,000 feet -- without ever leaving his room. The Olympic gold-medal swimmer feels most comfortable in the pool, but he credits a great deal of his success there to his time above the water ... high above the water. Moses, 24, has been altitude training for two years, using a room that has been modified to simulate the thinner air at high altitude.

As tragic as his abandonment was, "Baby Moses" is one of the lucky ones. He is young, barely 2 months old. He is Caucasian. His pitiful face and the story of his discovery made headlines, pulling on the consciences of hundreds of potential parents who offered to give him a home.

Everything new seems to start in L.A. We supply the country on an almost daily basis with new foods, fads and fantasies. We spew out hairstyles and clothes styles the way fish lay eggs in strings of hundreds. We make up new words, create new heroes, manufacturer new politicians, write new songs and think up new problems. And today I've got another "new" for you. I think we may be on the cutting edge of a new people's movement against guns. Thank Moses for that.
