Missed free throws, so many lost chances. A half spent getting badly outrebounded, more lost chances. Bad shooting, blown layups, chances lost over and over.

Katrina is not a happy clown. Accustomed to having free run of the Third Street Promenade, Katrina will soon be tethered in a performance zone, with a $120 license affixed to her baggy clown suit.

Allen Crabbe shares more than a name with his father. The father would sneak out of his Philadelphia home to play basketball until 2 in the morning. The son would call his high school coach a few hours after practice to re-open the gym and weight room late into the night. The father would shovel snow off concrete just to play. The son would cut short a vacation just to get back on the court. Father and son often hit gyms together over the last few years, staying until the teenager made between 800 and 1,000 shots during sessions that lasted several hours.

It's possible that victory in the Persian Gulf brought at least a rhetorical end to the much-discussed Vietnam syndrome. But the Administration's new diplomatic initiative may do more than that: For if in fact Washington achieves the aim of establishing a normalization of relations between Washington and Hanoi in two years, the deeply seated demons of the Vietnam War may finally be exorcised from the American psyche. Then the war truly will be over.
