The cowboy boot rides again. Fashion's preoccupation with western gear means the cowboy boot is once again tops in footwear. But, strangely, the boot of the '90s is not necessarily paired with western duds, and it comes in multiple styles and exotic skins. Consider, for example, the snakeskin half-boot. What self-respecting ranch dude would wear such a shoe? It's aimed not at the rancher but at the fashion animal who wants style, not something practical. The height of style for men who travel in fashion circles is a pair of skintight Gianni Versace couture jeans, a silk print shirt and a pair of cowboy boots.

Bush-Saddam Hussein Debate: President Bush: Mr. Dictator, we know you folks have a mass of destructive weapons, mass weapons of destruction, destructive mass weapons, and so forth, and you'd better ... Saddam Hussein: I cannot talk with this man until I am paid my usual speaking fee, in cash. President: You'll have to see Cheney on that. Saddam: In any event, I require an hour before beginning, in order to collect my notes. President: He's stalling again.

George W. Holland, 61, of Southwest Philadelphia, an outdoorsman with a love of horses who, his son said, was born two centuries too late, died of a heart attack Saturday at Presbyterian Medical Center. Mr. Holland attended Bartram High School, and worked any job that allowed him time to hunt, fish, and be around horses. He bought his first horse, Rusty, when he was 20, and built a stall for him in his grandmother's backyard in Eastwick. Two days later, while Mr. Holland was grooming Rusty, the 800-pound chestnut bolted and galloped away, plunging into the Delaware River, the Philadelphia Daily News reported in April 1963.

It felt like Christmas in July. And it was. If you were looking for the ancestral home of the classic Western boot, you would find your way to the corner of North Main and Exchange in the Stockyards section of Fort Worth, Texas. There, where the herds passed on their way to the great steakhouse in the sky, is M.L. Leddy's. Leddy's began shoeing cowboys before the cows came home. There are trendier bootmakers today, with handles like "Rocketbuster" and "Falconhead," but there is no finer practitioner of this particularly American craft than the outfit that still bears the name of Martin Luther Leddy.

In John Sandford's latest novel, "Bad Blood," there's a scene involving a siege at a farmhouse that's so violent, so intense, one suspects the author has either been involved in a shootout or witnessed bullets flying over his head. Fortunately, neither scenario is true. Sandford has only witnessed the aftermath of violence. "I did a lot of cop work, and I saw a lot of dead people," says Sandford. "I went to Iraq for awhile . . . and I talked to people who have been in these situations, who have fired machine guns at people and have had machine guns fired back at them.

More than 50 mounted steeds thundered through Fairmount Park yesterday in a final farewell to the first black Mounted Patrol Philadelphia police officer, Russell W. Neugent, 79, who died of lung cancer July 10 at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Neugent's last request, made two days before he died, was to have his cowboy boots placed on his feet. His funeral was Friday. Yesterday, Neugent's son, Eric, placed those same boots facing backward on the saddle of his father's riderless horse, Classic Babe, to "honor his service in the Merchant Marine, Army, Police Department and Air Force," his son said.

Two guys on the OKKK radio station - Thurston in overalls and cowboy hat, Arles in giant pompadour and cowboy boots - keep us informed about the doings (or lack thereof)

After the genuine smoke and (mostly) simulated fire had abated at Citizens Bank Park on Friday night to signal the end of country-pop megastar Jason Aldean's show, a key metric for rating the concert was evident. Satisfied fans exited the ballpark, some in cowboy hats, some in ball caps, many in pointy-toed boots (especially women, a good number clad in high-thigh-baring "Daisy Dukes" cutoff denim shorts). Most everyone sported contented looks on their faces. Leave the qualitative and quantifiable assessments to critics and other bean counters - these folks were happy.

No matter the year, something always seems to happen when the Eagles are involved in "Monday Night Football. " From Howard Cosell in 1970 to Michael Vick in 2010, and so many incidents in between, the Eagles will make their 50th appearance on Monday night next week, when they host the Chicago Bears. From dog bones to the formation of Eagles Court; from the "House of Pain Game" to the "Body Bag Game"; from Donovan McNabb's scramble to the disappointment of Reggie White Night, the Daily News has gone through the archives to look back at our Top 15 Monday night games and some excerpts of how we described them back then.

YOU CAN'T WIN playing scared, and Jason Garrett sure seemed scared. Last Monday, for almost 30 minutes, the Cowboys coach addressed the state of his team. The 'Pokes had moved to 3-3 by beating the Rams. The Rams stink, yesterday's fluke over the Saints notwithstanding. Still, with the Rams beaten, Valley Ranch heaved with that palpable arrogance achievable only by a team that considers itself America's choice. But not Garrett. Three times in his day-after address last Monday, Garrett laid bouquets of tribute at the feet of the disappointing Eagles: * The Eagles,who led the league in turnovers.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Tony Romo's ribs held up just fine. So did Dan Bailey's leg. Romo persevered through pain to lead enough deep drives to set up Bailey for six field goals, including a 40-yarder with 1:57 left to give the Cowboys an 18-16 victory over the Redskins last night. Dallas' Anthony Spencer chopped the ball from Washington's Rex Grossman with 28 seconds left, and linebacker Sean Lee recovered it, setting off a celebration inside Cowboys Stadium. Dallas coach Jason Garrett dropped to a knee and pumped his fist wildly at being 2-1 - guaranteeing no repeat of last year's miserable 1-7 start.

This back-to-school season, the fashion-savviest young people shop in their own closets first. Only then do they hunt in specialty boutiques, department stores, and thrift shops for can't-live-without pieces. High on the list this fall: anything color-blocked, dark skinny jeans, fitted blazers, filmy floral shirts, trench coats, and strapless maxi dresses. Yes, we did say strapless for fall - seasonless fashions are mainstream. "I'm more concerned about the look than I am the label," said Emily Jung, a 17-year-old Upper Dublin High School senior who fancies herself a burgeoning vintage maven.

You say you're rushing out Wednesday to get the new Rolling Stone when it goes on sale, to read about Gen. Stanley McChrystal dissing Veep Joe Biden . But we know what you'll really do: ogle Lady Gaga on the cover showing a lot of flesh (the weapons on her chest could kill), then turn to the Gaga story, titled "Tells All. " "Sex is certainly not, like, a priority at the moment," she, like, says. Other Gaga-ntuan news: Her highest priority is her relationship with fans; she models her celebrity on Michael Jackson ; she has a recurring dream starring "a phantom and a blond girl who's tied up with ropes" and is wearing her shoes from the Grammys.

HARRISBURG - Former State Rep. Mike Veon, once among the most powerful politicians in Pennsylvania, was sentenced Friday to six to 14 years in prison for his part in orchestrating a scheme that used more than $1 million in taxpayer money to finance the campaigns of House Democrats. Veon, 53, once the second-ranking House Democrat, is the most senior former legislator yet to be convicted in the sweeping Bonusgate probe launched by Attorney General Tom Corbett in 2008. Dauphin County Judge Richard A. Lewis said Veon, who represented Beaver County in Western Pennsylvania for 22 years, abused his office and engaged in "blatant criminal activity.

Even in the heat of the summer, it seems that most concert promoters treat Atlantic City and other beachfront Jersey locales like a three-night town. And this year, more than in the recent past, talent bookers are targeting their mostly weekend attractions to a really grown-up (say, 30-plus) entertainment-seeker who wants an easy, safe bet. So, you're not gonna find many hot new buzz bands here - not even at the most-contemporary-minded Borgata or the House of Blues at Showboat. What you will find are dozens of musical artists and groups (and the occasional comedian)
