Robert Hattoy has his doubts about Earth Day, about "the corporate hype and the mind-numbing media overload of eco-mush" that he believes is trivializing monumental environmental problems.

"Not one thing will have been changed. My real concern isn't about Earth Day, but Earth tomorrow."

Forget about trying to compete with baseball.

The devastating stories of two Southern Californians struggling with AIDS took center stage at the Democratic convention Tuesday night, moving to tears an audience riveted by a mother's description of her young daughter's death and a gay man's plea for life. The normally boisterous floor at Madison Square Garden frequently fell quiet as Elizabeth Glaser, 44, and Bob Hattoy, 40, took to the podium to recount how the fatal disease has ripped apart their lives.

In a double defeat for environmentalists, the Senate Appropriations Committee on Wednesday approved a plan to sell Southern California offshore oil leases in 1989 instead of 1990 and voted to delete funds for a study exploring the destruction of the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, effectively killing a proposal for restoring the area.
