ARLINGTON, Va. - If I were a betting man, I would wager the demons in hell are rejoicing over the news that William Bennett has been ousted as a gambler. His critics, who never liked imposing a moral code on themselves and so rejected the idea that such a code was good for anyone else, are celebrating what they perceive to be a vindication of their position. That attitude was expressed in a column by Michael Kinsley in Monday's Washington Post: "Sinners have long cherished the fantasy that William Bennett, the virtue magnate, might be among our number."

Amanda Kinsley and Daniel Singer woke up yesterday morning regular teen-agers, 18-year-olds with untucked shirts, rambunctious personalities and, well, hair.But while their friends set off on vacation fun, high school graduation fresh on their minds, these two Howard County teens stepped wide-eyed, silent and a little pale into the crowded lobby of the Naval Academy's Alumni Hall, into a strange new world.From 6 a.m., Kinsley and Singer, with 1,224 peers in the Naval Academy's incoming class, went through a six-hour metamorphosis that is the institution's legendary induction procedure.

KINSLEY, Kan. -- For years, about the only thing that's ever stirred folks to pause here on a seemingly endless trip across the high plains is the big sign at the junction of U.S. 50, 56 and 183.One arrow points west, reading, "San Francisco, 1561 miles." Another points east, advising, "New York, 1561 miles." As the sign says, Kinsley is "Midway U.S.A," where travelers, relieved to be this far, pose for a snapshot before moving along.But within a couple of years, folks here predict, tour buses will be pulling into town with regularity and swarms will fill Main Street.
