DOVER, Del. - Jimmie Johnson spent a leisurely Sunday afternoon at Dover International Speedway, leading for 289 of the 400 laps and watching in his rearview mirror as problems plagued many of his key competitors The closest thing to a mistake Johnson made in winning the FedEx 400 was the rainbow-colored fright wig he wore to Victory Lane, a not-so-subtle nod to his turquoise car's movie-themed sponsor, Madagascar 3 .

LEMONT, Ill. - Justin Rose chipped in for birdie on the 17th hole and hung on to win the BMW Championship on Sunday. Rose closed with an even-par 71 at Cog Hill for a 2-shot victory and is headed to the Tour Championship with a shot at the $10 million FedEx Cup prize. But it wasn't that easy. He watched a 5-shot lead shrink to 1 shot over John Senden until the birdie chip gave him a cushion. PGA Cup SAN MARTIN, Calif. - Mark Sheftic, a teaching pro from Merion Golf Club, defeated John Wells of England, 1-up, to help the United States retain the PGA Cup at San Martin, Calif., by a final score of 171/2-81/2 over Great Britain and Ireland.

NEW YORK - Signs that the U.S. economy is improving helped investors put aside fears over Japan's nuclear crisis Thursday, if only temporarily. It was the first gain in the market after three days of losses. Stocks rose broadly. All of the 10 groups rose in the Standard & Poor's 500 index, the basis for most U.S. mutual funds. Twenty-six of the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones industrial average rose, led by a 3.2 percent increase in Hewlett-Packard Co. All 30 fell the day before.

I'm perfectly willing to have a debate about the wisdom of privatizing Pennsylvania liquor sales (although I do believe it's part of the continuing assault on public-sector unions) - but can we at least make it an honest debate ("Why keep State Stores," Sunday)? I'd like to see what kind of profits FedEx and UPS would be bringing in if they were required to deliver, without payment, to every address in every state, every piece of self-promoting bloviation that our elected officials decided to inflict upon us. Or every piece of junk mail business solicitation we are privileged to receive.
