Soulful Hatch

We've written plenty about Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch's musical talents. Now we see that the Republican senator and ranking member of the Select Intelligence Committee has gone Hollywood.

"He does have a song on the 'Stuart Little 2' soundtrack," confirms Peter Carr, spokesman for Mr. Hatch. "The song is titled 'Little Angel of Mine,' and Senator Hatch wrote the lyrics, Madeline Stone wrote the music and the song is performed by a group called 'No Secrets,' an all-girl band that everybody thinks is going to be the next big group."

Music and poetry run in the senator's blood. He started taking piano lessons at age 6 and before long added the violin. From the age of 12 until he left for Brigham Young University, he attended every concert of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, walking two miles each way to the music hall and back.

Since then Mr. Hatch has penned more than 300 songs, including those for singer-songwriters Janice Kapp Perry and Billy Hinsche of the Beach Boys. He has published numerous ballads for Nashville artists and has with Ms. Stone produced songs for the CD titled "Whispers of My Heart." One song on the CD, titled "Souls Along the Way," is for Sen. Ted Kennedy and his wife, Victoria.

Mr. Hatch also wrote an inspiring song, "The Different Makes the Difference," for his good friend and boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

As for the senator's contribution to the "Stuart Little 2" soundtrack (the movie opened last Friday), "Little Angel Of Mine" goes like this:

Little angel of mine

There's a star in the sky

And it's shining for you

Make a wish tonight

All your dreams can come true

My arms will be around you

Kiss your tears away

I'Il comfort and protect you

Never be afraid ...

I will watch over you

Little angel of mine

Ware she going?

There's dismay in some AIDS corners over the rumored dumping of Patricia Ware as executive director of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS.

Mrs. Ware has been one of the Bush administration's "most loyal supporters" and is an "extraordinary" bridge builder who can comfortably discuss touchy subjects such as abstinence education and marriage, insists one colleague.

Now it appears she has been told she has 30 days remaining on the job, and her allies have been advised, "don't try to save her, she's going."

Why would a veteran professional, who as a black woman was especially influential with communities of color, be given the bum's rush? …
