IN HANDING a victory to gay rights activists earlier this week, the Supreme Court has not set any broad precedents that would govern other controversial issues involving homosexuals, such as their ability to serve in the military or their right to marry. Instead, it has taken a narrower stand, opposing only the concept that a state could "single out" one group of people in a manner that would, in Justice Anthony Kennedy's words, "deem a class of persons a stranger to its laws."Justice Antonin Scalia, in one of his trademark caustic dissents, accused the majority of taking sides in a culture war, and pointed out the seeming disconnect between this week's decision and a 1986 ruling which upheld a Georgia law making certain homosexual conduct a crime.

In reversing more than 75 years of case law barring lawsuits between husbands and wives, Maryland's highest court scrapped a legal doctrine rooted in the idea of women as chattel that it called a "vestige of the past, whose time has come and gone." But legal analysts were split yesterday over the likely effects of this week's landmark ruling. Some hailed it as a victory for women's rights, while others warned of an explosion in litigation and a new set of complications for divorcing couples and battered wives.

Sen. Bob Kerrey is being considered as a potential running mate for Gov. Bill Clinton. But he probably won't be selected. And the reason, if true, seems unfair.It has been reported that Clinton would like the Democratic convention to end with himself and wife Hillary standing on the stage next to running mate and running mate's wife.This makes for good family television, with the two happy couples waving, the lights flashing, the music blaring, and the delegates joyously cheering -- or at least trying to look interested.

Q: What are a spouse's legal rights in Maryland regarding jointly owned or individually owned real estate in the event of a marital breakup or divorce?Arlena Gakuba, Owings MillsA: Under Maryland law prior to 1978, at the end of a marriage, legal title was the only factor in disposing of real estate. For example, legal title in a home required that it be distributed to the title holder when the divorce decree was finalized. Even though a spouse may have contributed to the purchase, improvement or maintenance of the parties' marital home, if legal title was vested in the other spouse, the home would be distributed to that spouse.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking By Malcolm Gladwell. Little, Brown and Company. 304 pages. $25.95. Malcolm Gladwell, the most original American journalist since the young Tom Wolfe, has produced another book that will change the way people think about the way they think. Students of Gladwell, a staff writer for The New Yorker, would expect nothing less. No matter the subject of his magazine pieces -highway safety, the inherent limits of mammogram testing, or why there are so few varieties of ketchup - Gladwell has the rare ability to render the mundane compelling, to connect seemingly disparate subjects, and to routinely turn conventional wisdom on its head.
