There is the LPGA and the PGA. I don't recall an MPGA. Go, Annika. May the best person win. Tony Henrich Arcadia Let's face it, anyone can play with the boys if you get an exemption. The real question is, can you make money against them? I doubt Annika is going to be leaving her millions on the LPGA anytime soon to compete with the men. Paul Green Newport Coast Vijay Singh is a coward. By withdrawing from the Colonial, Singh has proven that he's the antithesis of a competitor.

Underlying all the U.S. Supreme Court debate Monday over equal-protection guarantees, the intent of the voter and the appropriate reach of the Florida Supreme Court was a single question, the most basic one the court has faced in this matter: Does every vote count? In a second round of solemn yet spirited argument, a majority of the justices appeared not to have moved from the presumption they seemingly held in stopping the recount Saturday--that George W.

Now we'll probably never know if Mehmet Ali Agca acted on his own when he attempted to assassinate Pope John Paul II, or whether he was an agent of the then-communist secret police of Bulgaria, acting on behalf of the Soviet Union. Yet, as we shall see, that is hardly the most important question raised. Agca has given conflicting accounts of the May 13, 1981, attack, and, as the Italian prosecutor said, "You can't keep people in prison just to make them talk."

For all of their creepy allure, the most revealing thing about the Linda Tripp-Monica S. Lewinsky tapes was how few ripples they produced when they finally surfaced last week. Even more than the transcripts released earlier this fall, the tapes seemed like artifacts from an ancient culture, a moldering chronicle of events already dissolving from memory. It was like listening to voices from beyond the grave.

Re "How Would Secession Affect Us," March 22. [Irene] Tovar asks some very interesting questions and then infers that she does not have the answers for them. Her discourse is one that Valley VOTE has heard all along from opponents in this drive to bring the true facts to the residents of the San Fernando Valley. Perhaps responding to the many invitations that Valley VOTE has extended to Tovar, so that, as a leader of the Latino community she could participate in this process, would shed some light on her questions.

Is the microphone working? I SAY, IS THE MIKE WORKING? Oh, it is. Good. I've called this press conference to analyze the 1997-98 television season--36 gleaming, spanking new series. Going over the list of 31 I've previewed, I see lots of passable entries and only a few absolute stinkers, happily more to be pleased about than sad about. Reporter: Wait a minute! Wait a minute! This press conference isn't about Diana or the paparazzi? Oh? You haven't heard enough on those subjects?

Nathan Lane couldn't help firing off zingers at the recent Tony annual nominees celebration at Sardi's--offering a preview of what he is likely to do as the host of the 50th-anniversary Tony Awards, to be telecast on CBS tonight from the Majestic Theatre. "Look, there's Julie Andrews," he told a reporter. "And she's got a gun!" Indeed, the absent Andrews had gone gunning for the Tony nominating committee shortly after this year's nominees were announced on May 3.

All this time it looked as if the Lakers were gaining momentum for the playoffs, then it turned out the only thing building speed was the snowball. Downhill it went, squashing the reputations of Cedric Ceballos and Nick Van Exel in the weeks leading to the postseason and then, finally, rolling over an entire team.

Pundits and politicians pondered Friday how a candidate with so much promise could fritter it all away. How did he blow this, they asked? It was the wrong question, based on a faulty premise: that California's governor--any governor--"automatically" is presidential timber. That has been conventional wisdom for decades. And it's time to lay that puppy to rest. Gov. Pete Wilson just tossed a big spade full of reality all over the myth.
