PASSING LEADERS Saints Brees...13-15, 137 yards Colts Manning...1-2, 9 yards RECEIVING LEADERS Saints Colston...4, 61 yards Colts Addai...1, 9 yards RUSHING LEADERS Saints Bush...3, 10 yards Colts Hart...2,4 yards Momentum: The Colts had two three-and-outs, and Drew Brees passed for 137 yards as the Saints held the ball for 12:26. They were able to put only six points on the board, however, and came up empty on a third- and fourth-and-goal from the one. Did you notice?

One week from today, it all gets very real. These re-invented Dodgers will take the field for the first time -- remodeled stadium permitting -- to open the season against the evil Orange & Black, who just happen to be the defending World Series champions. Again. By now, of course, most of our questions about this edition of the Dodgers were supposed to have been answered. They came to camp with few, yet seven days from the season opener, they now almost seem to have more of them.

As the highest-rated and most controversial anchor on MSNBC, Keith Olbermann never failed to get people talking. But when the "Countdown" host abruptly parted ways with the network Friday, neither side was willing to say much at all. During his on-air farewell speech, Olbermann simply explained that he'd "been told" that this would be his final "Countdown," implying that MSNBC had fired him, before wishing his fans "good night and good luck....

First came shock at the news that a U.S. warship in the Persian Gulf had shot down an Iranian airliner, with the apparent loss of all 290 people aboard. Then came bewilderment over how such an appalling mistake could be made. The guided-missile cruiser Vincennes has been advertised as the latest in high-tech surface vessels, a $1-billion weapons platform that supposedly can identify hundreds of potential targets at once and simultaneously engage in anti-air, anti-submarine and anti-ship warfare.

Leaders of the union that represents state correctional officers Monday endorsed the new, more therapeutic approach planned for California's youth prison system, but said they doubted that it would become a reality. Mike Jimenez, president of the California Correctional Peace Officers Assn., said the Schwarzenegger administration's model for reform of the juvenile prisons was "a good target" and would make life safer for the 2,800 officers and counselors who are union members.

MCA's recent announcement about the home-video debut of "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," the all-time top-grossing movie, was remarkably vague. All it said was that the movie, which has grossed more than $700 million, is due out in the fall, in time for the Christmas shopping season. There weren't any details--about price, release date, cable or pay-per-view plans--because they haven't been worked out yet. So why make the announcement now?

People who study brain disorders say they know more about Parkinson's disease than just about any other. That's a tribute to the brain's awesome complexity. The long list of unanswered questions about Parkinson's is growing shorter at an agonizingly slow pace. To researchers, each unanswered question is a challenge. They know that Parkinson's cascade of symptoms--tremor, bad posture and slowness of movement for starters--occurs because certain nerve cells in the brain die.

I was very disappointed by the story about Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens) ("A New Morning Has Broken," by Phil Sutcliffe, May 21). Now that his old records are being re-released, Islam is ready to hawk his life story to the press like any other singer making a comeback, but he dodges the one question that must be answered. In 1989, Islam advocated the murder of another artist, Salman Rushdie, to satisfy his own religious intolerance. Either he still stands by that position, or he must clearly repudiate it. (We're told that the controversy "wounded" him, and any discussion of it today makes him "terribly uncomfortable"--as if Islam were the victim!

Will double the hosts and double the nominees add up to double the fun and ratings? We'll find out at 5 p.m. Sunday on ABC when the 82nd annual Academy Awards air live from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. To bolster sagging ratings, the three-hour-plus telecast boasts two hosts -- the wild and crazy Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, who just starred as rivals for Meryl Streep's heart in "It's Complicated." Martin has hosted the Academy Awards before and was a funny, cerebral, emcee.

Of all of the world's sports superstars, Tiger Woods has been blessed with one of the more idyllic lives -- a gorgeous wife, two adorable children, multiple millions in the bank, and an image of purity and excellence that transcends the sport he dominates. But the image, and with it one of the sporting world's premium brands, was under threat Sunday as the mystery surrounding his one-car accident, just a few steps from his Florida mansion on Friday, deepened and as he continued to refuse to talk to authorities.

The nation's major banks modestly reduced their overall lending in recent months, even while they were collecting nearly $200 billion in federal bailout funds, the Treasury Department said Tuesday in its first progress report on the banking rescue program.
