It won't be easy to stop squandering national wealth on military buildups and an endless appetite for oil. Citizens who have been passively accepting tax cuts while leaving the bills for war to their children and grandchildren will have to wake up from Bush's reactionary dreams. This is probably the most distressing post I've written in several years, but Iraq turned out to be a subprime war with a massive balloon payment. - Deepak Chopra on www.intentblog.com It is the duty of the media to offer the big picture . . . but unless I've missed it, no news organization has tried.

The Utah Jazz held something in reserve for the Sacramento Kings. The Jazz, with its bench players scoring 71 points, tied a team record with its 10th straight victory, beating visiting Sacramento, 130-88, last night. Karl Malone scored 25 points as Utah matched its longest winning streak, set last season. The Jazz broke away from a first-quarter tie by closing the period with a 16-0 run. "We're playing well together, executing, making the extra pass," Malone said. John Stockton had 16 points and eight assists while Jeff Hornacek had 12 points and seven assists.

About two weeks ago we made our first offer to buy a home. The Realtor wrote in the offer, "Contingent upon buyers' obtaining the maximum mortgage available at current market terms. " My wife and I signed it, and within two hours, the seller accepted our offer. Now the Realtor says the best loan she can find is for 80 percent of the sales price at 10.25 percent interest with a two-point loan fee. But when we signed the offer the Realtor assured us we could get a 90 percent loan since we have excellent income and credit.

The New Jersey Supreme Court yesterday suspended a former Camden County judge from practicing law for one year and ordered him to repay two clients who lent him $10,000 in 1980. The former judge, William A. Pascoe, served as a Municipal Court judge in the late 1950s and then as a judge in the Camden County Court system before resigning from the bench in 1971. He had a private law practice in Collingswood at the time he "engaged in unethical and unprofessional conduct," according to the justices' unanimous decision.

Government officials and other observers agree that the U.S. housing market cannot recover until the foreclosure crisis is solved and a regulatory system is put in place that ensures no repeat of the lending debacle that caused it. Yet the remarks of Obama administration officials and consumer advocates at a conference of real estate writers and editors here suggest that the very depth of the crisis means a resolution is far from close in coming....

What do you do when your team scores 14 points in the first quarter, its lowest opening period of the season? What do you do when the coach yanks all the starters off the court within the first 11 minutes? What do you do when you mount an excellent comeback, digging your way out of a 17-point hole, even go ahead (59-57), then fade again? "Forget about it," 76ers forward Clarence Weatherspoon said after the Sixers lost, 112-107, to the Celtics last night. "That's what I do. I forget about them when the (final)

Marjorie Peterson is taking an unlikely approach to getting herself out of a financial bind: She is prepared to lend someone a lot of money. Peterson owns two homes, not by choice. "I'm one of the victims of the real estate slump," she said. She has purchased a home in Delaware County and wants very much to sell her Society Hill trinity, which has languished on the market for months. About a month ago she severed her ties with her Realtor and decided to try to sell the house herself, asking $122,900.

We own a three-bedroom, one-bathroom home in a nice neighborhood with excellent schools. Our problem is that our home is too crowded for our family of five. We have looked at larger homes, but they seem too expensive in the school district we prefer. Our alternative is to add a bedroom, bathroom and family room to our home. But we realize that the construction would be inconvenient, and the cost estimates seem high. Do you have any suggestions on the best way to finance the improvements?

Wanted: A point guard, preferably a veteran in the final season of a contract, to fill the breach for the 76ers. Wanted: A big man to offer some inside presence and support for the Sixers' front line. Wanted: A victory. John Lucas, the Sixers' coach and general manager, has intensified his search for all three of the above. As he looked ahead to the daunting task of hosting the two-time defending NBA champion Houston Rockets Wednesday night, Lucas intimated that he might make at least one personnel move this week.

Baseball rewards panic the same way a pit bull rewards sudden movement. There's no future in simply turning and running from a bad start from a baseball team, or in trying to repair a six-month season with a few weeks of glue and duct tape. The Phillies were constructed for 2013 on the precarious hope that their aging veteran starters would pitch well and that their aging everyday players would regain their productivity. Around that central theme, the front office sprinkled journeymen and prospects who might be good enough if everything else went right.

He's offered Octo $1 million to have sex on camera, he's offered less to her to not have sex on camera, and now he's offered to make Octo's February mortgage payment while he considers whether to buy her La Habra, Calif., home. Hirsch said yesterday that he's looking into whether it makes good business sense to pay off the $450,000 that Octo owes and to assume the note.

The NFL salary cap is making teams do some very strange things. In Baltimore this summer, owner Art Modell gave a pink slip to Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Rison, just a year after he gave him a $5 million signing bonus. Rison's release had nothing to do with his ability to play football. The Ravens just needed cap room to sign their draft picks. So, they cut a man who has averaged 78.3 receptions a season over the last six years. In Arizona, the cap-strapped Cardinals unloaded defensive end Clyde Simmons, who led the team in sacks last year, and 1,000-yard rusher Garrison Hearst to make room under the cap for first-round defensive end Simeon Rice and holdout defensive tackle Eric Swann.

In the heat of the NBA's Western Conference final, a reporter stuck a microphone in front of Jeff Hornacek and asked about being traded from the 76ers to the Utah Jazz. "Did you feel," the guy said, "as if you had just gotten out of jail?" It was a question that brought out the diplomat in Hornacek, who changed addresses Feb. 24, as that evening's trade deadline approached. "Philadelphia," Hornacek said gently, "was a good learning experience. "Sometimes it helps you to go through a losing season, gives you a perspective on your career and life in general.

Jeff Hornacek's heart is still in Phoenix, but his NBA career is in Philadelphia. It has taken more than a season and a half with the 76ers, but he has decided that's OK. That is why the Sixers' shooting guard is watching the approach of today's 9 p.m. NBA trading deadline with mixed feelings. He doesn't expect to be sent elsewhere, but knows that as league executives start churning toward the wire anything is possible. A remarkable amount of speculation has a way of flashing through the league just before the witching hour.
