Greg Bell, whose career nose-dived to such depths in 1987 that he was considered bulk-rate mail in the three-team Eric Dickerson trade package, will return to Buffalo Monday night to feed his former organization the latest league rushing statistics and some crow. In fact, roll out the barrels of crow. This is as triumphant as returns get in the National Football League, and Bell isn't one to let it pass without basking and blasting.

No matter how many times Newport Beach ophthalmologist Richard Weiss shows visitors a videotape of blind, destitute people waiting hours for surgery they hope will bring them sight, he's the first to tear up. For more than 10 years, Weiss has worked to restore the sight of poor people in places such as India, South Africa and Haiti, where the blind line up by the hundreds for his free surgeries. He has seen, and treated, children with opaque, unseeing eyes like those pictured on his video.

Quarterback Vince Ferragamo, whom the Rams are trying to trade, displayed his talents for the Buffalo Bills Wednesday. Buffalo Coach Kay Stephenson and his staff watched for two hours as Ferragamo worked with several Bill players and then led a makeshift, seven-man offense against an equal number of defenders. "It went well," said Stephenson, who is looking for an experienced quarterback to replace longtime starter Joe Ferguson, traded to Detroit earlier in the year.

Hooray for Richard Weiss and his article entitled "No Growth, Overreaction Can Sink the Southland" (Nov. 18). Who would object to fewer traffic jams, or cleaner air, but is the execution of the construction industry the way to do it? Are the loss of jobs, the decrease in spending, the increase in housing costs or the possible decline in the value of real property worth it? This would be a dramatic blow to the economy. Why not skip that unavoidable economic cycle and its casualties.
