Carl Lewis and U.S. sprint coach Russ Rogers shook hands for photographers Tuesday and said they had patched up their differences over the makeup of the men's 400-meter relay team. "It doesn't matter whether Russ and I are best of friends or worst of enemies," Lewis said. "What does matter is that we have the best possible relay team." "Everything is OK," Rogers said, "and we're going to set a world record."

Rogers and Burkett certainly have short memories. Apparently they've forgotten that it was the leadership of Harriett Wieder, chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, that put Measure A on the June ballot rather than delay until November as Riverside County has done.
