Mitt Romney has been accused of revealing something in a hot-mike moment that perhaps he didn't want to reveal ("Dems: 'What's Mitt hiding?" April 17). I understand the desire on the part of the Democrats and The Sun to catch Mr. Romney in a similar "gotcha" moment to what President Barack Obama had during his meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, but Governor Romney repeated several times in the early primary debates in front of millions of viewers, apparently none of then Democrats or Sun employees, that he would consider cutting departments but didn't have enough information to decide which ones.

We at Network 2000 are giving careful consideration to which candidate for governor is willing to make a sincere and honest commitment to the women of the state of Maryland. Recognizing that the next administration will have the opportunity and responsibility of appointing approximately 1,000 of Maryland's citizens to positions of authority, Network 2000 feels it is important for women in Maryland to have an equal opportunity and role as appointees. We, as an organization, raised our voice to challenge each of the candidates for governor to commit to having 50 percent of their gubernatorial appointments to commissions, committees, task forces, advisory boards and intrastate agencies be women.

The "Scandal" Season 4 opener reset the board totally after the events of the finale, and I could not be happier. Olivia is with Jake.  I repeat: Liv is with Jake! On an uncharted island 100 miles off the coast of Zanzibar, where they are pretty much living a fairytale! Liv's got a really cute, curly beach fro and Jake refuses to button his shirts! They have sexy-time at the beach! They get their food delivered to them by a guy on a boat! But things can't stay perfect and sunshiney forever.

Any manager working in private business has, most likely more than once, made cost reductions. When doing so, they try to achieve the savings with the smallest impact on the central business of the company. Listening to members of President Obama's Cabinet and others in his administration talk about the upcoming very small percentage reductions in spending, it is apparent they are doing the exact opposite ("Obama is lying about the sequester" Feb. 27). Small reductions mean an end to essential services.

Is Gov. Parris N. Glendening falling into the "Schaefer trap"? It looks that way, based on his top-level appointments.Back in 1987, Gov. William Donald Schaefer loaded his administration with people who had worked for him in Baltimore City. They knew how to run things in the city and thought they could simply duplicate their successes in Annapolis.It didn't turn out that way. Running state government is far more complex and multi-dimensional than operating a county or city.Now Mr. Glendening has loaded his administration with aides he worked with in Prince George's County.

WASHINGTON -- Perhaps the most striking thing about the second-term Cabinet and White House staff being assembled by President Clinton is how unstriking it is.With all due deference to Madeleine Albright, William Cohen, Anthony Lake and the rest, there is no one who stands out, on paper anyway, as a real heavyweight in terms of achievement or reputation. As a result, the president is likely to seem even more than in his first term to be the top dog.All presidents, to be sure, wear a cloak of supreme authority and power by virtue of the office they hold.

Q: This is a picture of our oak kitchen cabinet. I would like to know who manufactured it, date of manufacture and current retail value.A: Since your kitchen cabinet is unmarked, it is impossible to identify the maker; it was made in the early 1900s and would probably sell in an antique shop for $800 to $900 in good condition.Q: The attached mark is on the bottom of a hatpin holder that is 6 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter. It is fine porcelain and hand painted with daisies and poppies.

Washington. -- Bear with me for one more column, please about the social-racial-political ''miracle'' that Bill Clinton and Al Gore are producing with regard to this nation's new leadership.The changes I see these two white Southerners provoking have deep personal meaning to me. When I joined the Kennedy administration in 1961, the Cabinet was all-male and all-white. My getting a relatively middle-power job of deputy assistant secretary of state was front-page news across America.When I became director of the U.S. Information Agency in 1964 and President Johnson decreed that I sit in meetings of the tTC Cabinet and the National Security Council, I walked into Cabinet meetings noting that there was not another black face, nor a Hispanic or female one in view.

JERUSALEM -- Ariel Sharon's outsized brown leather chair sat empty at his Cabinet's table for the last time yesterday as government ministers formally ended the stricken Israeli leader's tenure as prime minister. By a unanimous vote, the Cabinet declared Sharon, who has been in a coma since suffering a devastating stroke Jan. 4, to be permanently incapacitated. The vote was a formality, spurred by legal necessity. Sharon's deputy, Ehud Olmert, assumed the duties of office the night the 78-year-old leader suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke.

Raymond A. Skinner, one of the original members of Gov. Martin O'Malley's Cabinet, will retire at the end of this month, the governor's office announced Friday. O'Malley appointed Skinner, 67, as secretary of housing and community development in 2007, shortly after taking office. It was the second go-round for Skinner, who previously served as housing secretary from 1999 to 2003 under Gov. Parris N. Glendening. Skinner was known for his involvement in the administration's efforts to add to the state's stock of affordable housing.

Senior aides want to know if you are interested in becoming the next U.S. attorney general. You take it, right? Wrong. You tell the president-elect's people that they have the wrong number.

Larry Hogan is a former state cabinet secretary and son of the first Republican congressman to announce that he would vote to impeach Richard Nixon.

PARIS - President Jacques Chirac, under pressure to show results before next month's crucial legislative elections, named a conservative interim Cabinet yesterday, putting a steel magnate in charge of the economy and creating a powerful new security chief to get tough on crime. The 21-member Cabinet, proposed by Chirac's new prime minister, Jean-Pierre Raffarin, was unveiled at the Elysee Palace two days after Chirac's landslide victory in the presidential runoff election over far-right leader Jean Marie Le-Pen.

BEIRUT, LEBANON -- Pushing ahead despite threats of street violence and unrest, a depleted and defiant Lebanese Cabinet unanimously approved yesterday a U.N. plan for an international court to try the killers of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. The vote was another small step toward clearing up a mystery that has shadowed and destabilized this country for more than a year. It was also the latest stroke of political brinksmanship between two bitterly divided political factions in Lebanon.

Sometime after giving birth to my first child, but before getting the third one out the door for good, something weird happened. I can't pinpoint the exact moment, but I'm guessing it was somewhere between learning to read with Dick and Jane and getting my first pair of parachute pants. I think that's when my memories officially went from "feels like yesterday" to "ancient history. " I've always enjoyed browsing antique shops. I'm intrigued by anything and everything from a bygone era, from butter churns to Edwardian jewelry; from 1930s Coke machines to 1950s barber poles; from old furniture to toys that would be considered, by today's standards, not merely unsafe, but lethal.

As a long-haired teen growing up in the 1960s, Jim McCullough had little clue what he wanted to do with his life, but two things did stir him: He hated the way some people in Laurel, his hometown, looked down on his African-American friends, and he loved using the wood lathe in shop class. He has traded the hippie locks for a grandfather's trim goatee. He long ago gained renown in the region as a master furniture craftsman, at times for his work on pieces used by government officials from presidents to attorneys general.
