David Russell David Russell Plays Baroque Music. (Telarc 80559) The Scottish-born David Russell, who will give a Baltimore-area recital next month, has been one of the world's most admired classical guitarists since winning several major competitions in the late 1970s. His latest Telarc release easily demonstrates why. Russell's technical command of the guitar is impressive enough, with a superbly clear articulation, even in the gentlest of trills or most florid of phrases. But it's the musicianship behind the playing that makes all the difference.

Voters threw television news organizations an old-style change-up last night, tying all their high-tech computer projections into knots during the closest presidential fight in at least a generation. Network and cable news shows stumbled over the fate of Florida all night long, initially assigning the vote-rich state to the campaign of Vice President Al Gore on the basis of projections from the networks' joint venture, the Voter News Service. Then the campaign of Texas Gov. George W. Bush threw an old-style tantrum about the call.

In an expansive, inclusive inaugural address, the elder son of former President George Herbert Walker Bush called on the rest of the nation to make a "new commitment" to those same qualities. "What you do is as important as anything government does," Bush said. In a distant echo of John F. Kennedy's 1961 inaugural speech, he added: "I ask you to seek a common good beyond your comfort.

Washington. - The Democrats, sensing opportunity where there was none six months ago, now are taking great delight in comparing George Bush to Herbert Hoover.It is grossly unfair, of course, but no one ever said politics was supposed to be fair. What counts is what resonates with voters. And the Hoover comparison resonates.It touches a chord not because the nation is about to enter another Great Depression (on that point, one might get some argument), but because a contract has been broken, a vision shattered, an illusion turned to harsh reality.
