Defining obscenity is a difficult enough task for the courts, but for legislative bodies it is hopeless, and any serious attempt to legislate standards of art will inevitably produce politically purified art like that found in Goebbels' Germany or Stalin's Russia.Yet that's just what Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C., is yearning to do. Using isolated and extreme examples of artistic projects, Helms managed to buffalo both the House and the Senate into adopting measures to restrict the artistic content of works which are supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.

LOUISVILLE, KY. -- Heavy favorite Untapable blazed to victory in the Kentucky Oaks Friday, a triumph for jockey Rosie Napravnik and controversial trainer Steve Asmussen . Napravnik kept Untapable a few paces off the lead for much of the run, then pulled away to win by 41/2 lengths. The performance didn't quite match Rachel Alexandra's 20-length win in 2009, but the even-money favorite lived up to high expectations. "She is magnificent," said Napravnik, who was plenty good herself in winning a second Oaks.

WASHINGTON -- In a lopsided defeat for conservatives led by Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C., the Senate has resoundingly voted down attempts to impose harsh new restrictions on the content of creative work funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.The Senate yesterday also approved by a margin of more than 2-to-1 a bipartisan compromise offered by 14 senators, led by Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, to relax NEA restrictions enacted by Congress last year that have resulted in more than two dozen grant rejections and three lawsuits by artists and arts institutions.

SEN. JESSE Helms (Neanderthal-North Carolina) wants to slash federal money for AIDS victims because they contract the disease, he believes, from "deliberate, disgusting, revolting conduct."This is just ole Jesse funnin' again, gay-bashing as he does every so often when he's low and needs a pick-me-up.If he really wanted to punish consciously unhealthy conduct, he'd be going after smoking.But -- well, North Carolina, Jesse Helms and the tobacco industry are pretty much one and the same. Mr. Helms isn't about to bite the lobby that feeds him.It costs Mr. Helms nothing, however, and helps endear him to his fans, to pretend he still believes, as almost no one else does any longer, that AIDS is a gay disease.

Sen. Jesse Helms of North Carolina has demonstrated in the two weeks since Republicans gained control of the Senate that he is not up to being chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.He crudely threatened President Clinton in a letter saying "the administration" would not get "full and fair" treatment before his committee if it did not postpone Senate action on a world trade agreement. That is not the position of the Republican Party in Congress.Then Mr. Helms recklessly said on national television that he did not believe President Clinton is "up to" the job of commander in chief and implied that members of the joint chiefs of staff had said as much to him. Sen. Bob Dole, the majority-leader-to-be, and other Republican senators criticized the remark; Gen. John Shalikashvili, chairman of the joint chiefs, denied it was true.

STATESVILLE, N.C. -- David Parker, the Iredell County Democratic chairman, concedes that the television commercials Republican Sen. Jesse Helms is using against Harvey Gantt this fall are "brilliant" political tools. But he adds: "I get the feeling he's preaching to the choir."This question is a critical one in the contest here between Helms and Democrat Gantt, the black former mayor of Charlotte. Everyone knows that Jesse Helms can whip up his conservative partisans by railing about Ted Kennedy and the perfidy of liberals but whether he once again can expand his core of followers into a majority of the North Carolina electorate is another matter.

Anne Arundel County is without an official police chief following Tuesday's formal retirement of Chief Larry Tolliver. This month Tolliver announced he was stepping down effective May 22, and County Executive Laura Neuman has not named a permanent or interim chief to replace him. Deputy Chief Pam Davis is handling day-to-day affairs for the department, said department spokesman Justin Mulcahy. Davis routinely fills in when the chief is traveling or on vacation. Though Tolliver's last official day was Tuesday, he has not been at police headquarters in Millersville since May 10, when a few dozen staffers threw him a farewell party, Mulcahy said.
