For Ann Mondell-Richard, becoming executive director of the Greater Towson Committee is a logical step in a long career working on behalf of Towson businesses. "It was really kind of a natural progression for me," the 39-year-old Baltimore resident said. "I've worked in Towson for 10 years, and it just made sense for me to focus on Towson. This area has come so far, but it can go further; there's definitely some room for redevelopment." Since 1979, the committee, originally called the Towson Development Corp.

CALL IT THE "Don and Helen Show."

THE TALKING HEADS can argue about whether it was a vote against the president, against the party, against liberalism, about whether it was the revenge of the white male voter or the reaction of the middle class.And the Republican pols can spout pieties about working together for the American people while Newt Gingrich goes straight for the neck flesh, calling names, talking trash, practicing his patented brand of "I'm-OK-You're-Scum" attack politics.But one thing I know for sure, looking back on this election.

WASHINGTON -- Several longtime critics of the Warren Commission report asked yesterday to remove bullet fragments from the body of former Texas Gov. John Connally.Mr. Connally was wounded in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas. The JFK researchers argue that scientific tests on fragments still lodged in Mr. Connally's wrist and thigh will prove that more than one assailant fired on the presidential limousine in Dealey Plaza.In letters to Attorney General Janet Reno and Texas Gov. Ann Richards, the researchers asked for help in allowing the fragments to be removed from Mr. Connally's body before its scheduled burial today in Austin, Texas.

WORCESTER, Mass. -- When Ann Richards, Texas governor and outspoken feminist, lampooned George Bush at the 1988 Democratic Convention, the last thing you'd have called her was tentative.But new research suggests that women who speak assertively don't wield as much influence with men as do those who speak more hesitantly.College of the Holy Cross psychologist Linda Carli asked four actors, two men and two women, each to tape-record an identical speech arguing in favor of charging a fare on student buses.

Bill Clinton may or may not have been given a Texas-size boot in the pants last weekend. The fact that Democratic Sen. Bob Krueger got about 29 percent of the vote and finished second in a race to fill the Lloyd Bentsen Senate vacancy may be more a reflection on Mr. Krueger than on the president. Mr. Krueger, who was appointed in January to sit in the Senate till a special election, has a prior record of doing poorly in statewide races.But the fact that he and all other Democrats got about a third of the votes while Republican candidates got about 60 percent is certainly not good news for President Clinton's party, whoever and whatever are to blame.
