It was 4:30 in the morning on Sept. 5, 1972, that 9 Israeli athletes were taken hostage after 2 of their fellow country men had been killed by Black September,a Palestinian terrorist organization. The 9 athletes and a West German policeman were later killed by the group.

Labor Day for 94 million unemployed Americans. The working ones aren't doing that much better.

Thursday night is the NFL Opener. We have a pretty good idea how that game is scheduled. But do you know how the other 255 games are scheduled?

They are also constrained by internal factors. A formula determines each teamís opponents every year, and a rotating schedule ensures that every team plays each of the other 31 at least once in a four-year period.

It takes 136 computers in a secure room to spit out every possible schedule ó a process that sets the stage for the schedule-makers to begin the arduous task of picking the best possible one.

The reset buttond didn't work. And the glow of golfing on vacation has worn off. Someone has to act presidential.

Obligatory slam at President 4Putt.
