I'VE HAD AIDS since 1988. Needless to say, I've had to endure quite a bit of pain and suffering over the past several years.A lot of senseless pain and suffering, to say the least.All in exchange for one shot of heroin. That's all it took.I unknowingly shared a dirty needle with one of my cellmates in the Maryland State Penitentiary, and that's all it took to bring me to where I'm at today.I wake up to new physical developments in my body most every day now. These developments are never positive to health nor encouraging to life.

"Shakespeare in Love" provides the literary set with its own "Something About Mary," a bonehead comedy for eggheads that manages to be smart and funny even at its most trivial.Exuberant and lovely to look at, this romp will provide an interlude of pure fun for film goers who don't mind taking their Shakespeare with a dash of irreverence and even outrageousness.As in the best of the Bard's plays, there is plenty of swordplay, intrigue and semantic derring-do in "Shakespeare in Love." Moreover, there is plenty of eye-catching glamour and soulful romance, making this the ideal date movie for wordsmiths, theater fans, history buffs, young people (hey, it's got Ben Affleck)

WASHINGTON -- After a debate yesterday shot through with raging partisanship, a tortured and torn House of Representatives will convene this morning to vote on the impeachment of the 42nd president of the United States, William Jefferson Clinton.The House's impeachment of a president for the first time in 130 years is all but a foregone conclusion. Democrats spent yesterday intermittently pleading for national forgiveness and hurling invective across the aisle at Republicans -- but largely declining to engage the other party in debate over the law.Republicans have begun preparing for a landmark trial in the Senate that would decide whether Clinton should be convicted and removed from office.

A Carroll County Circuit Court judge denied a motion yesterday to move the Sept. 21 trial of a 16-year-old Westminster boy who will be tried as an adult on charges of selling heroin to a schoolmate who died of an overdose in January.Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. rejected the arguments of Anton J. S. Keating, a Baltimore attorney representing Kristopher Olenginski, saying common sense dictates that it is incumbent upon the state's attorney's office to prosecute crimes it also tries combat with public messages.
