For 20 years after his military service in Vietnam ended in 1968, Morgan Monceaux roamed the country working odd jobs -- short-order cook, gas-station attendant, janitor. When he got bored, he'd pick up and move to the next place. He wandered from Washing-ton state to Florida and to points in between. He hitched rides and slept wherever he could lay his head. He dug meals out of dumpsters; for a while he was homeless. Then in 1990, when he was 43, he began to paint. He was living in an abandoned building in the South Bronx in New York City.

ONE wonders what the snootiest of the Hamptons people think about the recent shooting that took place at Club New York when Sean "Puffy" Combs' entourage scraped up against some other knuckleheads, and three bystanders were wounded. Society has changed. Wealthy people spent many years trying to keep minorities at a distance. Now they fret over whether they'll be invited to Mr. Combs' East Hampton summer party. During Prohibition, such people used to invite immigrant gangsters up to their Park Avenue parties.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - To take the temperature of excess in the Hamptons this summer, join Jay Lieberman in the shower of the new 12,000-square-foot house that he hopes to sell for $8 million, preferably to someone who will pay cash. Lieberman, a builder, has taken a seat in the glassed-in shower stall of the "his" bathroom in the master bedroom. He proudly points to a shower head that is 10 inches in diameter and is capable of caressing the human body with 22 gallons of water per minute (about nine times the maximum flow allowed in New York state, but unlikely to result in any legal woes)
