Relapse

July 3, 1997
I had almost finished the paper when my eyes rested upon Robin Abcarian's column ('Smoking Pleasures: Lighting Up, Throwing Them Away," June 25). Usually, I have about as much in common with her as I do Cathy Guisewite's "Cathy" cartoon. But lo and behold! Robin is sneaking away from her sleeping family to purchase a pack of cigarettes! Holy relapse! Who cares if they were a pack of lights. I read excitedly, pondering the possibilities. This was becoming a real woman, not a fictitious character made up by The Times.

President Obama mocked Mitt Romney on Sunday night for shifting his positions in the first nationally televised debate, saying his foe is not offering “change,” but a “relapse” to failed GOP policies. But Obama also acknowledged the poor reviews of his own showing. As he took the stage at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles after a star-studded “30 Days to Victory” concert, the president praised the performers who entertained a crowd of 6,000, with a  nod to the “old-school” Earth Wind and Fire, and the “new-school” Katy Perry.

Having a conversation with Rob Roberge is like participating in a discourse about, well, everything: Tim O'Brien's “The Things They Carried,” the art of celestial writing and the invention of the Big Dipper, why the Modern Lovers' “Roadrunner” is the best two-chord song in the world. It's one of the reasons I've always liked him; we've known each other for 15 years or so, have taught and published together, and I enjoy listening to him talk. He's sharp and funny, often lacerating and deeply self-reflective, qualities that also describe his third novel, “The Cost of Living” (Other Voices: 294 pp. $16 paper)

Your article referred only to women who have relapses although the title of the article used the word those. Do only women have relapses? How about equal time for men? LUCILLE MARTIN Alhambra

Pittsburgh Penguin owner-captain Mario Lemieux had a recurrence of an irregular heartbeat during a game Friday and didn't travel to Buffalo for Saturday's game against the Sabres. Lemieux, 40, was hospitalized Dec. 7 and diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, a fluttering of the heartbeat that was causing his heart to dramatically speed up at times. The condition can be treated with medication and is not expected to affect his career.

Cleveland Gary let his fingers do the talking Sunday afternoon. If this was bad news to the media mob that assembled around Gary's locker stall, only to find no clothes, no towels, no equipment bag and no Gary--hence, no comment--consider what it meant to Chuck Knox. Knox, head coach of a still-wobbly Ram football team, has entrusted his ground offense this year to a recovering fumblaholic. Not by design, mind you; call it a case of mutual desperation.

Alan Wiggins has suffered a drug relapse, according to one of his lawyers, Edgar Paul Boyko. Wiggins, the Padres' starting second baseman, checked in to an unnamed drug rehabilitation center on Saturday after mysteriously disappearing for two days. And it was at that time that another of Wiggins' lawyers, Roy Bell, said Wiggins "may well be stressed out" and that it wasn't clear whether his disappearance could be linked to drug use.

If you liked July, you'll love the weather this weekend, forecasters say. The glimmer of hope that skies would brighten this weekend was dashed Friday when the low pressure that has plagued San Diego throughout July returned, said Wilbur Shigehara, forecaster for the National Weather Service in San Diego. The pattern of night and morning clouds with partial afternoon clearing will persist through early next week.
