The Raiders began trying to pick up the pieces this week, and so far, they're pleased to report, it isn't the pieces of each other. Returning strikers went out onto the same practice field Wednesday with the 13 veteran strikebreakers and the remaining 10 non-union players. The 35 other replacements were waived without announcement or public acknowledgement of a job well done by management. They might have been Raiders but they were also 1-2. Everyone practiced together Tuesday.

A five-hour operation left the Seattle Seahawks center wondering if his NFL career was finished. "I'd be lying if I stood here and told you that I knew for sure I was coming back, because I didn't," Glover said Wednesday at practice. "My wife thought it was over too."

When the City of Glendale replaced old-fashioned cast-iron lampposts along Colorado Street with sleek 40-foot-high aluminium poles and bright sodium lights, it created "one of the least-attractive streets in Glendale," according to the Glendale Historical Society. In a report submitted to the City Council, the society charged that the installation of new light standards throughout the city is destroying the "character of neighborhoods and historical districts."

Just beneath the pale softness of her Botticelli face some vague hint of trepidation shows as Suzanne Farrell floats into the lobby of the Chateau Marmont. Her uneasiness, masked perhaps by the calm and quietude that surrounds the hotel, is almost palpable. But nothing is different. Farrell has always made her aura palpable.

ELEGANT CARS GLIDING THROUGH A DECAYING infrastructure, the dispossessed huddling in the shadow of bright skyscrapers, the sensation of a dystopian, multiethnic civilization that has managed to simultaneously advance and regress--these are scenes of modern urban decline, and if they make you think of a movie, and chances are they will, it can have only one name: "Blade Runner." Few, if any, motion pictures have the gift of predicting the future as well as crystallizing an indelible image of it, but that is the key to "Blade Runner's" accomplishments.
