Jeanne Vertefeuille and Sandra Grimes could be George Smiley's people. They were recruited on their college campuses by the Central Intelligence Agency during the height of the Cold War. Jeanne wanted travel and adventure. Sandy didn't know much about the CIA; she just needed a job. Jeanne and Sandy. That's how they refer to themselves in the book they co-authored, "Circle of Treason. " It tells the story of these two women - Jeanne worked her way up from the equivalent of the steno pool, while Sandy was immediately in the Soviet division (and over her head)

JUST WHEN Republicans thought they had the Clinton administration's neck neatly in place, waiting for the guillotine to fall in the FBI files case, along comes a tall-tales G-man named Gary Aldrich to scramble the plot. Mr. Aldrich's "expose" of alleged presidential trysts in a Washington hotel, as contained in a book issued by a right-wing publisher, was quickly repudiated by the conservative journalist he cited as a source.The Clinton entourage knows a distraction when it sees one, and it quickly sought to shift attention from its mass invasions of privacy to Mr. Aldrich's tabloid-style disclosures.

Have you ever noticed how people just seem to know your business around here? Maybe it's bred into the culture, part of our rowhouse roots or that whole smallest-big-city thing, but no man is an island in Baltimore. I remember grilling lamb chops in my backyard shortly after I'd moved into my current house, when someone I hadn't met yet materialized at the fence and asked, "Want some rosemary to go with that?" Um, sure, and I'll take some disaster survival insurance, too. Engaged neighbors, Daniel P. Aldrich tells me, are key to surviving and recovering from natural disasters.

Everyone knew Baltimore was a disaster area. The tornadoes made it official.Next time the CIA makes a personnel evaluation, remember that it is the agency that wrote off Aldrich H. Ames as mediocre, and he was the most effective spy in history.If dull old Parris can't bring out the black vote, Dr. Pierpont's vigilantes will, even if he can't enlist any.

IF YOU'RE ANYTHING LIKE me -- and millions are hoping you're not -- you have two towering ambitions in life.One is to sing a duet with Kathie Lee Gifford. Any song will do, but I was thinking either "Muskrat Love" or "Eve of Destruction."The other is to write a best-selling book.Once it was a difficult thing to write a best-seller. For one thing, you needed talent. And, even more difficult to come by, a good agent. Of course there was another option. If you didn't have talent, you could always wear dark glasses, hang out with nerds, gain maybe 50 pounds and change your name to Tom Clancy.

It's a little-known fact that when NASA astronauts venture outside the shuttle, they wear diapers under their spacesuits. An even lesser-known fact is that it's the duty of 47-year-old George Aldrich to sniff them. "Before they're used," he quickly adds. Aldrich has probably the most unusual and least-known job in the U.S. space program. Each month, he and a small group of volunteers stick their noses into just about everything that goes into orbit - from circuit boards and spacesuits to makeup and toys.
