"The attorney general of the state of Maryland has proposed that nobody be issued a handgun in the future unless they are a law enforcement officer. " "There are employers who are concerned about those who seek employment with their company. These job seekers go through the process of interviewing and then one day after working with these places of businesses, they walk off and say 'I quit.'

To Ryan Yost, a 17-year-old honor roll student at Washington County Technical High School, for the work he did to win "rookie of the year" honors at the Halfway Fire Company. To Bester Elementary School Principal Drenna Reineck, for agreeing to wear a boa constrictor around her neck if her students would meet their goal in a canned food drive. This lady's not only a good sport, she's got guts! To everyone who got worked up over whether or not Pluto would continue to be classified as a planet: One way or the other, what possible difference does it make to anybody?

Annapolis notes ANNAPOLIS - It was only a matter of time, it seemed, before the Maryland General Assembly found a way to make its statement on the alleged White House sex scandal. That came last week with an angry exclamation point. Late last month a letter was circulated among Democrats in the House of Delegates urging Howard County State's Attorney Marna McLendon to prosecute Linda Tripp for allegedly violating the state's wiretap laws. Tripp, as many people now know, is the Columbia, Md., resident who said she secretly taped conversations she had with Monica Lewinsky, during which the former White House intern claimed to have had a sexual relationship with President Clinton.

That giant whooshing sound you heard Friday afternoon around 3 was American productivity going right up the flume. All at the same time, millions of normally hard-working office employees turned their backs on their computer solitaire games and tried to be among the first to log on to the Starr Report - the long-awaited document that was to tell all about Whitewater, Filegate Travelgate, Vince Foster, Clinton's drug dealings and all...

Well, I thought Larry King's interview with Linda Tripp went well. At least through the first two sets, until the nicotine from that last cigarette began to wear off, and she began grabbing at her hair like it was the elusive rip cord on the last emergency chute. My, but she's fun to hate. I can't remember despising anyone for the pure sport of it more that I do the S.S. Linda. And of course it's funny because she deserves it. She's easy to hate because she's so full of hate herself.

You wonder how Ken Starr and the House managers felt this week. Seeing the man they so desperately tried to drive from office swagger onstage at the Democratic National Convention sporting a 70 percent approval rating, grinning like the cat that ate the canary and giving a speech that some feared “set the bar too high” for President Obama the following night.
