DAYS OF WHINE AND ROSES

These are thorny times for organizers of the 103rd annual Rose Bowl and its accompanying parade. It all started when a descendant of Christopher Columbus was named grand marshal of the Jan. 1 extravaganza. After groups representing Native Americans protested, a Northern Cheyenne member of the House, Ben Nighthorse Campbell (D-Colo.), was named co-grand marshal. That still may not forestall a demonstration.

Then, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department threatened that it wouldn't supply its usual security forces for the event. The reason: The Pasadena City Council insisted that the 763-member security team include no members of a local white-supremacist group. "The personnel of my department have been grievously and unfairly characterized," fumed Sheriff Sherman Block, prompting the council to apologize. What's next?
