WON. GIACOMO, 3, a gray son of Holy Bull and a 50-to-1 long shot; the 131st Kentucky Derby; in Louisville, Ky. The colt, named by its record-producer owner after Sting's 9-year-old son, had finished first in just one race before last Saturday, when he became the horse with the second worst odds ever to win the Derby, trailing only Donerail's 91-to-1 feat in 1913.
RE-ELECTED. TONY BLAIR, 52, to a third term as Prime Minister of Britain, the first time the Labour Party has won three consecutive elections; in London. But in a sign of how deeply Blair's support for the Iraq war has weakened him politically, his party's majority in the House of Commons fell from 161 to 66. "I have listened, and I have learned," Blair said.
RESIGNED. FATHER THOMAS REESE, 60, oft-quoted editor of the Jesuit weekly America, after years of tension with the Vatican doctrinal office run by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger; in New York City. A source close to America says Ratzinger's office demanded that Reese, who sometimes aired liberal views, be axed. The Jesuit spokesman in Rome says Reese made his decision solo, after Ratzinger was elected Pope.
DIED. BOB HUNTER, 63, Greenpeace's media-savvy co-founder, who coined the term Rainbow Warriors to describe the environmental group's hard-charging activists; of prostate cancer; in Toronto. The brusque former journalist devised clever slogans and spectacular events to garner maximum TV coverage for such campaigns as those to stop whale hunting, protect baby seals and reform logging practices.
DIED. DAVID HACKWORTH, 74, one of the country's most decorated soldiers, who returned his 80 medals to protest the Army's efforts to court-martial him for unrelated alleged violations after he called Vietnam a "bad," unwinnable war on national television in 1971; of bladder cancer; in Tijuana, Mexico. His 25-year military career included tours of duty in seven war zones, and he was said to have been the inspiration for Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now. More recently, as a TV pundit, he scorned the "perfumed princes" of the Bush Administration, including Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who he claimed "misunderstood the whole [Iraq] war."
DIED. HERB SARGENT, 81, six-time Emmy winner who spent more than 20 years writing for Saturday Night Live and helped make the show a hit by shaping such skits as "Weekend Update," a news parody; in New York City. The Tonight Show veteran brought credibility to Lorne Michaels' troupe of upstart comedians, whom Sargent dubbed the Not Ready for Prime Time Players.
DIED. KENNETH CLARK, 90, educational psychologist whose tiny, simply designed study of the emotional effects of segregation on black children was cited by Thurgood Marshall in Brown v. Board of Education, the case that led to the Supreme Court's landmark ruling in 1954 that "separate but equal" schooling was unconstitutional; in Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y. In 1951, at a segregated school in South Carolina, Clark asked 16 African-American children ages 6 to 9 to compare life-size dolls that differed only in skin color; one had white skin, the other brown. The wrenching results reflected the childrens' painful sense of inferiority: 11 identified the brown doll as the "bad" one.
