Gored by an Old Law

March 11, 1997 "The Executive Mansion is besieged, if not sacked," a gaggle of critics in the Senate declared, "and its corridors and chambers are crowded each day with the ever-changing, but never-ending, throng."

Promises, Promises

December 14, 1996 provocative and disturbing chapter of a soon-to-be-published book by the redoubtable Brookings Institution has been making the prepublication rounds in Washington. Titled ``The Unfulfillable Promise,'' the chapter is a woeful portent of forthcoming federal budgets.

The House's Net Dilemma

December 9, 1996 When the House Republican Conference late last month approved a new House rule that requires committees to put their documents on the Internet, it created a quandary that only lawyers could love.
