A 43-year-old man pleaded guilty yesterday to trying to kill A. Robert Kaufman, a Baltimore landlord and long-shot candidate for the U.S. Senate who was clubbed with a crowbar and stabbed in a rent dispute with one of his tenants. After a Circuit Court judge sentenced Henry Leon Davis to 12 years in prison, Kaufman turned to the defendant and asked him for a kidney donation. The socialist and perennial candidate for public office has said that his kidneys failed because of blood poisoning from the knife used in the attack.

Carozza asks the man at closer range.''Good. Real good.''''That's good,'' says Carozza, feeling flush with confidence even as prosecutors outline this case that could send him away for the rest of his life.

When I complained about some of the tedious jobs I had as a boy, my mother would tell me, "Ted, all work is honorable." In this poem, Don Welch gives us a man who's been fixing barbed wire fences all his life. - Ted Kooser "At the Edge of Town" Hard to know which is more gnarled, the posts he hammers staples into or the blue hummocks which run across his hands like molehills. Work has reduced his wrists to bones, cut out of him the easy flesh and brought him down to this, the crowbar's teeth caught just behind a barb.

RUSSIA'S 16-month-old war in Chechnya has been a bust. That's why President Vladimir Putin took its leadership away from the generals. From now on, counter-insurgency operations will be directed by Mr. Putin, along with his former KGB colleagues in the security police. By shifting command, Mr. Putin has craftily circumvented Russia's constitution. He has introduced direct presidential rule over the breakaway republic without declaring a state of emergency, an act that would have opened his administration to fierce criticism at home and abroad.
