American Gunfight: The Plot to Kill Harry Truman - and the Shoot-out that Stopped It Stephen Hunter and John Bainbridge Jr. The Making of an Ink-Stained Wretch Jules Witcover The Johns Hopkins University Press / 368 pages Jules Witcover may feel he's still an ink-stained wretch at 78, after a half-century in the news business. But he has loved every minute he has spent in newspapering. Or at least pretty many of them. "I've spent thousands of hours sitting, drinking, singing, writing and only occasionally sleeping on whistle stop trains, press buses, and planes from New Hampshire to California," he writes.

Happy Snaps That's how Bill Eppridge signed my starting-to-get-tattered copy of his new book A Time It Was: Bobby Kennedy in the Sixties. It is a tad ironic, the book ending with such a sad note - the death of Robert F. Kennedy at the hands of an assassin and the funeral. Something Eppridge has lived with for 40 years. That is how this business moves; the professional photojournalist often compartmentalizing strong emotion and constantly clinging to a facade of detachment. Look to the future and not continuously dwell on the past.

BILL CLINTON came to Annapolis on Tuesday to celebrate the signing of a gun safety measure with which everyone but the die-hards of the National Rifle Association can feel comfortable and to remember Kathleen Kennedy Townsend's father. Bobby Kennedy has been gone for 32 years, the victim of a crazed man with a gun. The NRA remembers Bobby. It's been trying to silence his ghost since 1968. In ceremonies at the State House, the president said Bobby would have been proud of his daughter. The lieutenant governor of Maryland nodded her head slightly and said a quiet, "Thank you."

Killer InstinctTim Baker's essay on "Hero Warriors" (The Sun, June 7) couldn't have been closer to the mark regarding the overemphasis of sports in our scholastic environment -- and beyond in our country.Not only has the attitude toward the arts and sciences in education changed with the emphasis on sports over academics, but the acknowledgment of victory, in whatever physical contest, now ends up with "high fives," pumping up of the hands, usually with a near-murderous scowl on one's face.

No figure in American entertainment has been more studied, dissected and mythologized than Marilyn Monroe. Which raises the question: Do we really need a two-hour film whose fundamental insight is that she may have been her own worst enemy?Probably not."Norma Jean and Marilyn," premiering at 9 tonight on HBO, offers the actress' life as a struggle for control between the real-life Norma Jean Baker and the make-believe Marilyn Monroe, and dramatizes the point by casting different actresses to play each personality.

YOU knew the House of Representatives' vote on the North American Free Trade Agreement was big doings because the local TV stations dispatched reporters to cover it.One of the correspondents -- an anchor actually -- did a live report the night of the vote while the brightly lit Capitol dome gleamed in the gloaming behind her.Breathlessly, as is the way with an anchor on his or her bi-annual assignment, she described a "contingency" of NAFTA detractors huddling...
