Neighborly Concern


Byline: John McCaslin, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Neighborly concern

Speaking to Inside the Beltway this week about the "closeness" of neighbors when you live in a building like the Watergate, the infamous landmark that the Kansas Republican moved into in 1972, former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole recalled that during the height of another not-so-pleasant chapter in presidential history, a young woman named Monica Lewinsky lived in the condo right next door to him.

"Where was G. Gordon Liddy when you needed him?" the 84-year-old Mr. Dole cracked.

Naughty again

Yes, that's Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky appearing together again in the chapter titled "Lying" of National Public Radio host Peter Sagal's new and rather intriguing: "The Book of Vice: Very Naughty Things (and How to Do Them)."

Not so inclusive

"Members of the Middlebury Open Queer Alliance demonstrated peacefully outside the Ross Dining Hall in conjunction with an information table sponsored by the United States Marine Corps on Nov. 13. The students protested against the college's allowance of such recruiting and challenged president of the college Ronald D. Liebowitz to abide by an earlier promise to hold a public forum on the issue of military recruitment at academic institutions."

Or so read the lead paragraph of yesterday's top story in the Middlebury Campus, the student weekly of Vermont's Middlebury College, where former President Bill Clinton delivered the 2007 commencement.

Recognizing Ted

That was AOL Chairman Ted Leonsis being presented with the Spirit of Service Award last evening by the Youth Leadership Foundation, which recognized his "personal, professional and philanthropic goals he has set and accomplished throughout his life."

Generosity aside, the goateed Mr. Leonsis is one of the more familiar faces at Washington professional sporting events, and for good reason. He's the majority owner of Lincoln Holdings, which is part owner of the Washington Capitals, Wizards and Mystics.
