RIGHT STATE, WRONG SPORT

Secretary of State Warren Christopher blew an attempt at diplomacy during a visit Wednesday to Indiana University. After delivering a speech about U.S. policy toward Russia, Christopher made a slight gaffe.

"I would like to come back to Indiana, I've heard about Indiana for a long time," he said. Then he said friends had been telling him about Indiana's famous "baseball" team for years.

Christopher meant to mention the Hoosiers' basketball team.
