If in family stuff Bush believes,That's not what the nation perceives;From jobs you can't take! A family break --In other words, no autumn leaves.Alas, it's a fact, not a fableThat Bush is consistently ableWith vetoes he signs% To boost bottom linesOf big-bizness bizness like cable.Population increase without endIs Earth's most calamitous trend;To bring crowding down,% Emulate Murphy Brown:Don't really give birth -- just pretend.He's called the Boy Scout billionaire;His gains were ill-gotten from where?

The snow was falling in large ugly flakes and my mood was even uglier when I picked up the phone yesterday and called the great Tom Tasselmyer. This is how we refer to the veteran WBAL-TV weatherman around my house, as the great Tom Tasselmyer. Throughout this horrible winter, the man's name has been invoked almost daily by everyone in my family. It seems my wife and I don't leave the house anymore without one of us shouting to the other: "What does Tom Tasselmyer say about today?" My kids, who will normally quote an adult only if he's Adam Sandler or the lead singer of Green Day, actually begin conversations with: "Tom Tasselmyer was just on, and he said ... " As of yet, there is no shrine to Tom Tasselmyer in my home, although I can envision a tasteful nook off the kitchen with kneelers, votive candles and a small bronze bust of Tom, or perhaps a full-color poster of him pointing at a Doppler radar map or the five-day forecast board.

My friend Steve Gavin handed me a ticket across the city desk of the old News American. Steve, then a columnist and forever the Broadway hound, had been up to New York to see On the Twentieth Century at the St. James Theatre. He thought I would like the show and produced the little stub that put me in an orchestra seat a few weeks later. I think back to that afternoon in 1978, when I got my chance to see this show, newly written in part by Adolph Green, who died this past Thursday in Manhattan.

MEXICO. By James A. Michener. Random House. 625 pages. $25.IN "Mexico," James A. Michener's newest novel published last year but still widely available, portions of Spanish and Mexican history are interspersed, a Greek chorus of sorts, while the author again demonstrates his skills as storyteller, researcher, entertainer and observer of humanity.The predecessor of the new title was "Alaska," published four years ago. These two are among a baker's dozen novels sharing a similar format: a story line that is enriched and embellished through detailing the chief characters' relevance to historical happenings that may span centuries.

The other night the kids and I made fudge with Velveeta in it.Why? Well, it was a dull Monday night. Mom was away, so it was an all-guy meal. But the main reason was the challenge. It had not been done before. At least not in our house.How was the Velveeta fudge? In a word, bouncy. In two words, not bad. In three words, not terrific either.When I announced that Velveeta fudge was on the evening menu, the kids reacted with skepticism. Like most people who attempt to feed children, I was accustomed to having my cooking questioned.

Some mornings I wake up and I think to myself that my clothes had better treat me nicely because it s a sure bet nothing else will.On these mornings I don't reach for the fashiony stuff, but for the kinder, gentler duds. We're talking loose fit here, pull-on pants and unstructured jackets, clothes my husband refers to as "your Ho Chi Minh pajamas" for the functional-chic look they share with certain revolutionary uniforms.I like that look, baggy bottoms and all, and I love its comfort -- and at the same time I wish it were more fashionable.

It was 1:30 a.m. yesterday and a 23-year-old woman was perched on a beam at the edge of Broadway Pier in Fells Point, chin in her hands, staring up dejectedly at the strings of white lights draped from the rigging of the Chilean four-masted ship Esmeralda. Trish Denning had been there all night. She drove to Baltimore from her home in Norfolk, Va., to meet a sailor, Juan Pablo, whom she spent time with during the ship's stop in Virginia. She dropped off a message asking him to call her hotel room, but he didn't.

James Taylor had had a long and highly publicized affair with folk singer Joni Mitchell, but he had a new love now and he wanted Mick Jagger to meet her. With hits like "That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be" (inspired by a run-in with a casting-couch producer in Nashville) and "Anticipation," Carly Simon was a major star in her own right.She was involved with Warren Beatty when she met Taylor at a Carnegie Hall concert in late 1971. Now they seemed to Jagger to be very much in love -- reason enough for Mick to pursue her. Then there were her looks.
