By Kevin Merida
Tuesday, October 27, 1998
Out on the book-tour hustings, a couple of stunning National Basketball Association wives are promoting a saucy new book about their husbands' currently moribund league.

    Wednesday, October 7, 1998
    POUSADA DO LONTRA—An oar in one hand and a backpack in the other, Leeanne Alonso of Springfield, Va., is crossing the brackish Abobral River deep in the Pantanal, the world's largest wetland.
