That the Republicans in the Senate want a whip who is more conservative than Alan Simpson is a stunning thought. You probably didn't know there was anybody right of him. The National Journal ranks him just slightly left of Sen. Jesse Helms and Sen. Trent Lott.Senator Lott is the Mississippian elected to replace Wyoming's Senator Simpson, who has been whip for a decade. Senator Simpson may have lost in part because of his close association with Sen. Bob Dole, soon to be majority leader. Senator Lott is a Phil Gramm man, and Texan Gramm is, in the Senate at least, Senator Dole's main (and more conservative)

NOT LONG AGO, Woody Allen was asked if his social life had changed since he'd become a star. Without skipping a beat, the comedian answered yes: ''I strike out with a much better class of women.''This is also what it's like being a successful woman in America. You get to be treated as the second sex by an ever-more-elite class of men.A generation of women has broken through several concentric circles approaching the center of power. Whenever one achieves a new status as first woman or only woman, other of us are convinced that at last and at least she is now immune from second-sexism.

On our page opposite today Andrew Arnett, the son of CNN correspondent Peter Arnett, refutes a scurrilous slander leveled against his father by Sen. Alan Simpson of Wyoming.The tactics young Arnett so eloquently describes are reminiscent of the McCarthy era, when thousands of innocent people's lives were ruined for no other reason than that their views differed from those of the self-appointed guardians of orthodoxy. By stubbornly insisting he will never retract what are now known to have been baseless accusations, Simpson has embraced a legacy of intolerance from those years that shames the office he holds.

READERS who enjoy being reminded of the relatively short span of American history and of the relative modernity of the old West will enjoy John Newhouse's profile of Sen. Alan K. Simpson of Wyoming in the March 16 issue of The New Yorker. Here is a sample:". . . Milward's grandfather Finn Burnett was an Indian fighter and a friend of Sacajawea, the Shoshone woman who guided Lewis and Clark. [Milward Simpson was Sen. Alan Simpson's father, and a senator from Wyoming before him.] Bill Simpson, Milward's father, was a friend of Butch Cassidy, but as a county attorney in Wyoming, he prosecuted Cassidy and got the only conviction ever against the famous outlaw.

DID YOU SEE where Sen. Alan Simpson of Wyoming apologized -- sort of -- for slandering Cable News Network correspondent Peter Arnett for his reporting from Baghdad and suggesting he was an enemy "sympathizer"?After being roundly criticized himself for the original charge in which he also repeated an unsubstantiated rumor that Arnett's Vietnamese wife had a brother active in the Viet Cong, Simpson acknowledged he couldn't prove it and said, "I greatly regret any hurt, pain or anguish that I have caused his family."
