When Vernon E. Jordan Jr. stood before microphones and cameras in a hotel ballroom last week and quoted the biblical admonition, "To whom much is given, much is required," some members of the vast Washington legal community chuckled and rolled their eyes. It seemed an unlikely explanation for why Jordan, power broker supreme and Clinton friend without peer, admitted to having helped a 24-year-old intern find a job. Not only because the former civil rights leader has been criticized by at least one prominent black leader for trading his previous career - and his principles - for a life of privilege.

Marple Township Commissioner Robert Jordan had gone to court expecting to face a jury of his peers on charges stemming from an altercation in the township building Jan. 15. Instead, the charges were dropped, apparently ending what Jordan's attorney, John M. Gallagher Jr., described as "this whole little mess. " Patricia Keates, president of the Marple Board of Commissioners, along with her husband, Robert, and library board member Maureen Muehsam dropped complaints charging Jordan with simple assault and terroristic threats just as Jordan's trial was scheduled to begin Monday in Delaware County Court, Media.

After Michael Jordan announced his comeback yesterday, the world of television shifted into overdrive. NBC, the NBA's primary network, immediately began to make changes to today's edition of The NBA on NBC to capitalize on the return of the man many call the greatest player to ever step on a basketball court. Ironically, NBC already had the game between the Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers scheduled for noon today before Jordan made his decision to return to the Bulls.

When Michael Jordan walks away from basketball, at the end of this season or whenever, exactly what does the NBA lose? Its best player. Sellouts. TV ratings. Income. Charisma. All of the above. "We'd lose the only household name in basketball," said the Sixers' Scott Williams, who spent the first four seasons of his career as a teammate of Jordan with the Chicago Bulls. "People who don't know anything about basketball know him. " People who don't know anything else about the league know that Jordan, a free agent-to-be, has said he will return to the Bulls only under certain circumstances.

When Penncrest's Josh Jordan sets his mind on accomplishing something, it is a pretty good bet the cross-country runner is going to get the job done. At the Delaware County Championships at Rose Tree Park in Media, the junior kept repeating a simple, but powerful, message. "When I got there, I looked at everyone else and I said to myself 'I came here to win,' and I just kept repeating that to myself. " And win he did, posting a time of 16 minutes, 2 seconds, his best of the year and 30 seconds faster than his finish a year ago. "Josh just had it that day," Penncrest coach John Baker said.

The Chicago Bulls' Michael Jordan capped a season of honors yesterday by capturing the NBA's most valuable player award. He became the first player to win MVP and defensive player of the year honors the same season. But Jordan still has not reached his primary goal - bringing the NBA championship to Chicago. Jordan, who averaged 35.0 points per game to lead the league in scoring for the second consecutive season, was golfing in the Carolinas and could not even be reached by his own team to be congratulated, Krause said.

Only Michael Jordan, and only in Cleveland. Jordan did it to the Cavaliers and their fans again, hitting an 18-foot jumper at the buzzer last night to give the Washington Wizards a 93-92 win. Jordan victimized Cleveland throughout his career with the Chicago Bulls, and although he's now wearing a Washington jersey, No. 23 still has the Cavs' number. "Everybody in the place knew where the ball was going," Jordan said. "I've had some big shots in Cleveland, and they keep going in. " With 1.6 seconds left and Washington down, 92-91, Jordan got free on a defensive switch and calmly drained his jumper for the Wizards, who trailed by 12 points in the fourth quarter.

If Michael Jordan hits a home run and it's not on video, did it happen? The Birmingham Barons outfielder, whose career highlights so far have been filmed inside NBA arenas, hopes to find a videotape of his first professional home run. Jordan's homer at Hoover (Ala.) Stadium on Saturday came so late in the evening that local television photographers had already packed up. "It was the bottom of the eighth and a late night," said team spokesman Chris Pika. "We would like to have a copy of it, and I think Michael would, too. " So the Barons are trying to get the word out to anyone in the record crowd of 13,751 who might have had a camera running when Jordan hit his homer.

With Michael Jordan back in the Big Apple, this NBA labor talk thing was perceived to be growing serious. Perceptions, of course, have been known to disappoint. David Falk, agent of His Airness, did say Jordan wouldn't become involved again until he thought discussions aimed at breaking the five-month-old NBA labor stalemate reached a more serious stage. Jordan's silky touch didn't seem to have much effect yesterday, with no new proposals offered in meetings between league and union officials in New York that didn't end until nearly midnight.

When he heard the news that John Kruk had been signed for three years at $7.2 million, he had mixed feelings - understandably so. Basically, he was happy for his teammate. But he wasn't so happy for himself. As Ricky Jordan put it yesterday, "(Kruk) is a good player, and he deserves what he got. As you know, the guy can play some first base. People talk about Andres Galarraga and Will Clark, but I think he's one of the top three. He can hit and play defense. It's no surprise that they wanted to sign him. " But Jordan knows what this means for him: another season in limbo.

THREE BACHELORS make a wager to see which of them can best keep love at bay in "That Awkward Moment," and you'll never guess what happens next. Well OK you will, because in romantic comedies dating back to Shakespeare, such anti-love vows exist only to be defeated. The devil is in the details - how casting and chemistry can keep the movie ahead of audience expectations. Results vary in the mildly gross and R-rated "Awkward," with Zac Efron front and center as Jason, who boasts of having a "roster" of casual-sex attachments, and encourages his friends to follow suit.

NEW YORK - Villanova entered Saturday's game as a compilation of polished technicians. They traveled to Madison Square Garden to deal with St. John's impressive assemblage of raw talent. Emphasize: raw . The Red Storm, considered by several Big East coaches to be the best group of athletes in the reconfigured conference, has been little more than a blustery squall: 9-6 overall and now winless in three Big East games. No one typifies the Red Storm's unrealized potential better than freshman Rysheed Jordan.

NEW YORK - During a sensational second half against Villanova on Saturday, St. John's freshman Rysheed Jordan of Vaux High showed the form that earned him being named the Big East's preseason rookie of the year. Jordan couldn't do enough to help the Red Storm beat Villanova, which defeated the Red Storm, 74-67, at Madison Square Garden, but he certainly impressed the Wildcats. The 6-foot-4 point guard rebounded from a rough first half, when he scored two points and shot 1 for 7, but the Red Storm led at intermission, 33-31.

Luciano wasn't her son, or even a relative, she said, but each year he would stop by her house on Venango Street in North Philadelphia, two doors down from where his wife and children lived. Now others will be bringing flowers for Luciano.

MICHAEL JORDAN thought he was fixed for life. Turns out his wife has other ideas. Jose Lambiet, of Gossip Extra, citing a source close to Jordan, reported that the former NBA star has agreed to reverse a vasectomy he allegedly got after he divorced his first wife. The 50-year-old Jordan already has three grown children, but the report said he made the decision because his new wife, 35-year-old ex-model Yvette Prieto, wants kids. And apparently, she was - you'll excuse the pun - a bit snippy about it. "That was part of the deal of them getting married," the source told Gossip Extra.

GULLANE, Scotland - The last five days must feel like a blur to 19-year-old Jordan Spieth. He won the John Deere Classic on Sunday for his first professional win, which qualified him for the British Open. He flew on a charter overnight to Scotland. He saw Muirfield for the first time. And then he went out Thursday and shot a 69, one of only 14 rounds in the 60s. Perhaps even more impressive is that Spieth had only one bogey, dropping a shot on the par-3 fourth hole. He birdied two of the par 5s and added another birdie on the short par-4 third hole.

  'It was one of those dark places that sometimes you've got to go to as an actor," Michael B. Jordan says about the day, a year and a half ago, when he found himself face down on a train platform in Oakland, reenacting the death of Oscar Grant . A 22-year-old who lived in the Bay Area's Hayward community, Grant was returning home from San Francisco, where he and friends had been watching fireworks. It was the early hours of New Year's Day, 2009, and in the chaotic aftermath of a disturbance on a subway car, Grant was shot and killed by a Bay Area Rapid Transit officer.

Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann, fresh off Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Phillies, will not pitch in the All-Star Game due to a lingering neck injury, Washington manager Davey Johnson said Friday. Zimmermann had an X-ray and MRI on Friday, but Johnson does not believe his ace will need to go on the disabled list. "They feel it's soft tissue that's the problem. It's something with rest that he could probably get by," Johnson said Still, the righthander who is 12-4 with a 2.58 ERA in 19 starts and was named to his first all-star team, is planning to make the trip to New York.
