For Clara Yu Chilled cricket calls rasp dwindling in the night; dew smothers down the umber field; mist rises from the sluggish streams; I watch the flight of geese to the horizon's edge; I hold the yield of eggplants, squash, sparse broccoli and hear my own faint sigh diminishing with no more ripeness left to hope for; not for me new hope for newer hope; I bring to bear the remnant life I've left behind.

It's a popular meme on the left, well summed up in this quotation from the website Down With Tyranny: “Chief Justice John Roberts does everything he can to see that the FISA court remains a trusty tool of the national security state.” The charge is that Roberts, himself a Republican appointee and a conservative, has packed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court with Republicans and pro-government types, which is why the secret court is...

The Clippers had just finished another practice when Eric Bledsoe pulled up a chair and sat down next to assistant coach Robert Pack . Then Chauncey Billups walked off the court and pulled up a chair next to Bledsoe and Pack, and thus began another film session for Bledsoe. It now has become the norm for the 22-year-old Bledsoe, who is tutored by Pack and Billups in the ways of becoming a true NBA point guard. "Before, it was, 'Hey, let's watch the film?' Now it's him saying, 'Coach, let's watch film,'" Pack said.

Two days after he signed a new contract, guard Robert Pack was traded Friday by the Portland Trail Blazers to the Denver Nuggets for a second-round draft choice in 1993. Pack, a rookie free agent last season out of USC, averaged 4.6 points, 1.9 assists and 12.4 minutes in 72 regular-season games. His value diminished in the off-season when Portland signed free-agent point guard Rod Strickland.

The Dallas Mavericks cleaned out the rest of their house Monday night, making a staggering nine-player trade that sent Jim Jackson, Chris Gatling and three others to the New Jersey Nets for center Shawn Bradley and three others. In addition to the 7-foot-6 Bradley, Dallas got point guards Robert Pack and Khalid Reeves and forward Ed O'Bannon. The Nets also received guard Sam Cassell, guard-forward George McCloud and center Eric Montross.

When guard Robert Pack transferred to USC from Tyler (Tex.) Junior College last year, he knew it would take time for him to adjust to college basketball. Pack, USC's starting point guard, is feeling comfortable running the offense now. "When I first got to USC I thought it would be pretty smooth, but then I realized that the players would have to get used to playing with a new point guard," Pack said. "But it's all coming together now."

Heads turned when USC guard Robert Pack ran onto the court wearing dark goggles before a game against Arizona. "Look, it's Robo Pack," a fan said. Said another fan: "I think they make him look like M.C. Hammer." Said a USC teammate: "He looks like Darth Vader." Pack wasn't trying to start a new fashion trend, he was merely trying to protect his eyes.

For USC's basketball team, winning is never easy. Saturday at the Sports Arena, the Trojans kept true to form with a 76-73 nonconference victory over St. Francis of Pennsylvania before 1,236. In a game in which it never led or trailed by more than eight points, USC needed late second-half heroics from junior forward Ronnie Coleman and freshman guard Harold Miner to improve to 3-3. St. Francis, a Division I school from Loretta, Pa., with an enrollment of 1,200, is 5-2.

Chauncey Billups is back on the Clippers bench. The savvy veteran sits next to the coaches, watching his teammates with the sharp eye of a player who has been in the league for 14 seasons. When a man is subbed out, he often pulls him aside and offers words of advice. He has told Chris Paul to be more aggressive. He has advised Randy Foye on when to shoot. His suggestions seem to be working. Wednesday marked the fifth game that Billups has attended since suffering a season-ending Achilles' injury early February.

Faster than this speeding Bullet? Not likely. Whatever doubts remained about those jets hidden in the legs of Washington point guard Robert Pack--and there weren't many, considering his standing as one of the NBA's best baseline-to-baseline dragsters--have been answered this season. Pack's explosive start has turned the once-unwanted player into an early all-star candidate. These bursts may seem familiar.

When guard Robert Pack left USC in 1991 after helping the Trojans to their first NCAA playoff berth in six seasons, few thought he had a chance to play in the NBA. But the Portland Trail Blazers invited Pack to training camp at the request of Trojan Coach George Raveling after Pack had played well in the L.A. Summer Pro League "I felt I had the talent to be drafted, and if not drafted at least invited to someone's (rookie-free agent) camp," Pack said. "That's hurt me more than not being drafted.
