Rob Blake was on the ice for 90 minutes Sunday morning at the Kings' HealthSouth Training Center in El Segundo, long after most of his teammates had disappeared. The defenseman was skating, testing the sore shoulder that has caused him to sit out the last two games, chipping pucks into a carton, looking like a man without a care in the world. But Blake knows full well that the only world he has ever known as a professional hockey player is about to change.

He ran through the desert against a horse with no name. . . . Well, actually, Canadian sprinter-in-disgrace Ben Johnson ran through mud against two horses and a race car Thursday at the Charlottetown Driving Park on Prince Edward Island. The order of finish: 1. A 17-year-old Morgan saddle horse. 2. A harness-racing pacer. 3. Johnson. 4. The racing stock car, a vehicle presumably headed to the scrap yard.

Nancy Davis Rickel has vision. Few could stage an Olympic-themed folksy-fun shenanigan like her Race to Erase MS sports competition (celebrities, pro athletes and socialites), couple it with an evening soiree with a one-of-a-kind auction and gross $2 million to fight multiple sclerosis. Kudos. She did. After holding the Race to Erase MS Chrysler-sponsored ski event in Aspen, Colo., for three years, Rickel, who has MS, opted for Los Angeles flair. This is how it worked.

Apartheid denies blacks in South Africa the most basic elements of human dignity: the right to live where one wants, work where one can, learn what one must. All are violated massively every day. Apartheid is a system of minority rule that treats the majority with contempt and now often fear. It must be broken down.

  Thousands of San Francisco workers are starting the new year with a raise. On Jan. 1 the city's minimum wage will rise to $10.24 an hour. That's the highest rate in the country and makes San Francisco the first place in the U.S. to mandate double-digit hourly wages for its lowest-paid workers. For Ace Wiseman, 27, a recent graduate of San Francisco State University who cleans tables for minimum wage in a Sunset District pizzeria, the raise from $9.92 an hour will buy a few more groceries.
