Sharing the pain

Welcome wagon

Fliers warning about President Clinton's "predatory nature" showed up over the weekend on the doorsteps of homes surrounding the $2.85 million brick Colonial house the Clintons purchased last week on a quiet tree-lined street, two miles from the White House.

Chad Gore, esq.

Washington lawyer Colby May recently received a phone call from a woman requesting the name of a lawyer who could handle a particular issue, and the name "Chad Gore" immediately popped into Mr. May's mind.
The woman burst out laughing, said that was very funny, then asked: "So, what's his real name?"
In fact, Chad Gore is a lawyer one who no doubt took a lot of ribbing in recent weeks during the presidential-election drama.

"Don't blame me, I voted for Gore. I think."

When all else fails

Finally, regarding our item of last week that the Coast Guard has given the go-ahead to remove the phrase, "In the Year of Our Lord," from all official documents and certificates, Inside the Beltway reader Roy Garrison writes:
"I have been in the Coast Guard Auxiliary for many years and we and the Coast Guard are called upon to aid people in times of distress. I'll bet most of the sailors in danger have called upon the Lord's name many times to get them out of trouble.
"Most sailors are God-fearing, as nature is very rough out there on the open seas. Before any type of aid arrives, believe me, they pray."
