For nearly half a century, the term "inner city" has been code for poor and minority. But now white flight — the decades-long trend of affluent Anglos leaving the urban core for leafier suburban cul-de-sacs — has run its course. And "inner city" is about to take on a whole new meaning. New census data reveal that Washington, where the population has been more than 50% black since the early 1960s, has lost its black majority.

The Broncos have won 23 of their last 27 regular-season games, and besides all but clinching the AFC West Division title, they can maintain their edge in securing home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. As if they needed any more help, they get the revenge-minded Chiefs without quarterback Elvis Grbac, sidelined because of a broken collarbone. Rich Gannon failed miserably in relief of Grbac last week in Jacksonville, but maybe the Chiefs were looking ahead.

Glen Sather created a champion in the small-market world of Edmonton. Now he'll try to rebuild the biggest-spending club in the NHL. Sather was introduced Thursday as the president and general manager of the New York Rangers, a far cry from the Canadian plains.
