Don't look now, but there's no hockey. The season was supposed to have started last week in Washington and 29 other North American cities. But it didn't. The NHL has vanished. It's disappeared. Gone. Poof. There's no hockey now. There may not be any hockey all season. Who knows when hockey will ever come back? It's like a black hole materialized and sucked in hockey. (Why couldn't this have happened to "Cats?") Tell the truth: Have you even noticed?

As U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson's investigative committee prepares to open hearings on the fund-raising scandals of the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton-Gore campaign, Democrat presidential aspirants will be watching warily. And that brings to mind Vice President Albert Gore. Excuse me, but am I the only one for whom the sight of Al Gore conjures up the word "doofus"? Maybe it's the woodenness that gives robotics a bad name. Could you pick him out in a telephone pole factory?

WE SPENT FIVE years acting hysterically, like a nation that was in a fight with Ricky Ricardo. We were insane people, screaming about politics, shoving tiny American flags on the corners of our news shows, convincing ourselves that flipping houses was a real job. There was a moment there when we even considered shunning French fries. But in 2006 it all changed. This was the year of adulthood, of sobriety, of pragmatism: the year of acting reasonably.

If a Hillary Clinton campaign official told a reporter that white voters never support black candidates, would the media have swallowed the message whole? What if a campaign pollster began whispering that Jews don't have an "affinity" for African American politicians? Would the pundits have accepted the premise unquestioningly? A few weeks ago, Sergio Bendixen, a Clinton pollster and Latino expert, publicly articulated what campaign officials appear to have been whispering for months.

Craig Crawford is one of the capital's most celebrated journalists. People line up to talk to him at parties. His sources beg to be quoted. Office seekers ask to meet him. And when Fox News learned he couldn't get its cable station at his office, it installed a satellite dish for him. Who is this man of influence? A top editor? Network anchor? Actually, no.

ABC executives can breathe a (momentary) sigh of relief. The network took a huge gamble by moving the medical soap "Grey's Anatomy" from Sundays to Thursdays this fall. But with "Grey's" the week's most-watched show (25.4 million average viewers in the live-plus-seven-day ratings), the network wound up No. 1 in the crucial 18- to 49-year-old demographic for the first week of the 2006-07 season. ABC averaged a 4.

You know you've arrived when people start complaining that you're too mean. With the publication last week of my column "The Judy Miller Media Hug-Fest," I received the customary Female Opinion Writer's Baptism by Fire. Tucker Carlson, host of MSNBC's "The Situation," accused me of being "catty." For the record, I am not mean. I devote my free hours to cuddling small furry animals, and I only rarely eat them for dinner. And catty? Please! I did not say one word about Carlson's bow tie.

HAVING gone out of fashion with the Bartlett presidency on "The West Wing," the issues drama is back, with less policy talk and more family therapy, on ABC's "Brothers & Sisters." Frankly I'm shocked (but gladdened) that this series made it through season one, after getting off to such an iffy start. Calista Flockhart as Ann Coulter? And then you want to bring Sally Field onstage as her type-A, bleeding-heart mother?

Do Americans really need a trio of 24-7 cable news networks? With more people getting their headline fix from websites and blogs these days, and fewer getting it from TV as well as other "old media," a No. 3 news network behind Fox News and CNN looks increasingly like overkill, or maybe road kill. Especially when that network is MSNBC, which in a decade of operation has become electronic journalism's version of the Chicago Cubs.

Invitations have gone out for what promises to be a must- attend event for much of California's Democratic elite, particularly those in the entertainment industry: a Sept. 8 fundraiser for Barack Obama at Oprah Winfrey's Santa Barbara-area home. In the best tradition of Hollywood, the e-mail touting the afternoon gathering doesn't mince words, promoting it as no less than "the most exciting Barack Obama event of the year anywhere."
