The New York Times reported on Dec. 8 that when a CIA contra-supply plane crashed in Costa Rica, "the CIA agent in charge of the operation ordered that jaws be removed from the bodies to prevent dental identification. " Is this now standard operating procedure for our administration? While President Reagan pretends that he cares so much for Americans held hostage and for the contra cause that he covertly contradicted his own overt policies and the will of Congress, he allows other Americans to fly without parachutes (Eugene Hasenfus survived only because he bought his own)

PepsiCo was ready. Soon after President Clinton lifted the trade embargo against Vietnam, a giant Pepsi can advertisement was erected in Hanoi. It makes you wonder whether the United States really lost that war, after all. Nineteen years later, with communism all but moribund, it is hard to remember the "domino theory" and the fear of worldwide communist domination that made the quagmire that was Vietnam possible. It's about time to end the war, and go forward. President Clinton says that concerns about trade played no part in his decision - only the belief that lifting the embargo would be the best way to gain a full accounting of the 2,000-plus American servicemen still missing from that war. Maybe, but it's also clear that - 19 years later - the United States finally has come to grips with the fact that, in war, there are loose ends, and eternally unresolved issues.

Shortly after earning the greatest accomplishment of his high school career, Deptford basketball standout Rickie Crews found himself a battered champion. Crews barely had time to savor Deptford's first sectional championship after last night's 60-50 win over Camden in the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 final at Eastern. As the teams were shaking hands after the game, Crews was leveled by a punch in the nose from Camden senior forward MacArthur Mason. "[Mason] said a lot of stuff, and he said during the game that he would do it," said Crews, a 6-foot-6 senior who played the game of his life with 24 points, 18 rebounds and 10 blocked shots.

One second was all that separated the Morrisville Bulldogs from a road victory over Bicentennial rival Devon Prep Saturday night. But Morrisville's 62-59 lead disappeared and then so did the apparent victory when Devon Prep's Joe Maertzig's three-pointer tied the game and the Tide pulled away in overtime to triumph, 76-66. Devon Prep held a 7-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, but Morrisville put things together and outscored the Tide, 21-9, to take a 3- point lead and set up the dramatic ending.

Unionville already had wrapped up the Southern Chester County League championship. All that really mattered Friday against Kennett was whether the Indians would finish the league season undefeated. Kennett made the Indians work for it, racing to a 12-point lead at halftime. But Unionville's defense proved to be too much in the second half in a 36-30 victory. Unionville's stifling defensive effort held Kennett to just 10 points in the final two periods, erasing that 20-8 deficit.

If you've been to Hungry Pigeon lately, you may have seen farmers delivering crates of corn, peaches, and tomatoes to chefs Scott Schroeder and Pat O'Malley. It's been happening several times a day in their Queen Village restaurant and cafe. Their menu leans hard on pristine produce, with many vegan and vegetable-heavy dishes, and the harvest is in overdrive now. But the chefs recently decided to start buying a lot more vegetables than they need for any given week. And in between the boxes of fresh-picked produce, you might also see them hauling in Ball canning jars in bulk.

THE EAGLES worked a lot on their three-tight end package in the preseason, but so far, they haven't had three healthy tight ends. This hasn't kept them from using the package. Doug Pederson has gone three-TE a number of times through the first two games, mostly with tackle Matt Tobin announced as eligible, as he was 16 times Monday night in Chicago, but also with guard-center Stefen Wisniewski for a dozen plays against the Bears. So far, Pederson and offensive coordinator Frank Reich have just used Tobin and Wisniewski as extra muscle on the line, but the season is young; we might see Tobin go deep down the middle one of these weeks, who knows?

Early last November, Zach Roberts sat on the sideline at Council Rock North as his West Chester Henderson soccer team faced off against Central Bucks East in the District 1 Class 3A semifinals.

From his spot on the field, Max Zandi saw it too, and remembers how it felt. He also remembered how it felt as the game slipped away.
