At the women's club -- one of those refuges of tasteful furniture and pre-blow-dryer hairdos -- one member asks Ellen Goodman about the semantics of rape vs. date rape, and, minutes later, another reminds her to say hello to her son-in-law, who also writes columns for the Boston Globe.The personal and the political. Of course. That's been Ellen Goodman's beat since she began writing a newspaper column in 1976. Some of her most recent takes on issues ranging from the familial to the global have just been published in a collection titled, "Value Judgments" (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $22)

I confess to feeling only slightly more rational than "Misery's" Kathy Bates. I want to strap Ellen Goodman into a chair and make her keep writing columns. Ms. Goodman, whose prose has graced newspaper pages for more than four decades, allegedly wrote her last column last week. I use "allegedly" in the hope that she was kidding. No one who has labored under the cudgel of relentless deadlines begrudges Ms. Goodman her hard-earned respite. Retirement seems too old a word for one so young in spirit.

Anna Quindlen, minus 50 IQ points." That was the verdict of the editors of Baltimore's City Paper not long after I started writing an opinion column for this newspaper. Anna Quindlen, minus 50 IQ points. It has been a lot of years, but it still stings. I was simply trying to do what Ms. Quindlen, then a New York Times op-ed page columnist, and Ellen Goodman of the Boston Globe were doing: taking their experiences as women, wives and mothers and telescoping it to reflect on the larger issues of the day. But I didn't need the City Paper to make me feel self-conscious.

Current anthem is right banner for this nation In her column "Let's dump `Banner' for `Beautiful'" (Opinion*Commentary, Oct. 19) Ellen Goodman proposes that we officially replace "The Star-Spangled Banner" with "America the Beautiful." I could not disagree more. As a Maryland native, I am certainly biased, since the national anthem was written here. But I feel there is another strong reason not to adopt "America the Beautiful" - the fact that it invokes God to do certain things for our country, such as "shed His grace on thee."

Havre de Grace. -- Thursday was the day we were all supposed to take our daughters to work, but I didn't take Sarah. It was just as well. For one thing, she was in school. And for another she would have been exposed to language unsuited to 11-year-old ears.The day was a beautiful one, but it began badly. I planned to move the cows and calves out of their winter pasture that morning, and went out in the pickup to feed them some high-quality hay first. A hungry cow can overdose on fresh spring nTC grass, so I like to have their bellies full before they move.

Almost as depressing as the killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Pensacola, Fla. abortion clinic was the ensuing war of words. Recent columns on the op-ed pages of The Sun and Evening Sun provide a sample.In a column reprinted March 15 in The Evening Sun, Anthony Lewis of the New York Times pulled no punches: "The murder of a doctor in Pensacola, Fla., tells us the essential truth about most anti-abortion activists. They are religious fanatics, who want to impose their version of God's word on the rest of us. For them the end justifies any means, including violence."

El Salvador DollarsMany thanks and kudos to Kenneth E. Sharpe for his on-target March 27 article about El Salvador's March 20 "acceptable" election, and to The Sun for publishing this column.I try to spend part of each year living in El Salvador, and I could not have said it better.But just in case our hard-working taxpayers are not yet moved to hold Congress accountable for expenditures of their money, let me reiterate.During the 12 years of civil war, $4.5 billion went directly and indirectly to death and destruction in El Salvador.
