Voters will have to decide how much to ding Republican vice presidential nominee Paul D. Ryan for slamming President Obama on a debt reduction commission, when Ryan made the same judgment himself with a vote in Congress. That kind of inconsistency is easy to prove, if a bit arcane for some Americans. But there is nothing mysterious to the athletically-inclined about marathon times, so it will be interesting to see how the public reacts to Ryan carving a huge hunk out of his best time for the 26.2-mile race.

Superior Court Judge Craig Mitchell has certainly gone the distance for his friends on Los Angeles' skid row. On Sunday he'll go another 26.2 miles as he leads members of the Midnight Mission Running Club during the Los Angeles Marathon. For much of the last year, Mitchell has spent portions of Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays conditioning mission residents for the competition, which starts at 7:28 a.m. at Dodger Stadium and ends in Santa Monica. Nine members of the club have signed up to participate in the marathon, with Mitchell paying the $175 entry fee for each.

About 16,000 die-hards expected to compete in Sunday's Los Angeles Marathon might think otherwise, but the sport of running has lost steam in the last few years. Interest has surged in Los Angeles' big run--which drew 11,000 entries last year and has registered at least 12,700 participants for Sunday--but marathon competition has stumbled elsewhere.

Sex and death. The stuff of best sellers, tabloids, hit movies and, especially during sweeps week, the 11 o'clock news. So why not the stuff of a magazine targeted at teen-agers? With teen pregnancies and suicides at epidemic rates, isn't there a need for a magazine that talks to young people in their own language about the real world? For Sassy ($2), a colorful new monthly that appeared on the nation's newsstands on Tuesday, the answer is an unequivocal yes. Unfortunately, in taking on serious topics in what its editors hope is a candid, nonjudgmental way, Sassy reduces life and death matters to the level of squibs on fashion and grooming.

Stan Saplin, a New York track nut, was beside himself. John Walker was approaching a milestone of running in 100 sub-four-minute miles, but Saplin had him running in 96 while Runner's World magazine had him for 97. When Saplin compared lists, according to the New York Times, he found he was missing a race in Tullylease in 1981. Saplin had never heard of Tullylease. Was there such a place? He checked a couple of atlases and couldn't find it. He checked out more atlases.

Paul Ryan, like his much older running mate, is in fine fettle and physically capable of carrying out the duties required of the vice president of the United States, according to the attending physician of the United States Congress, who has been examining the Wisconsin congressman since he was first elected to national office at age 28.
