On June 18, the Baltimore Sun's editorial came out in defense of Anthony Weiner ("Why did Weiner have to resign?"). The item claimed that what Sen. Larry Craig, did was much worse. Really? Sticking your foot inside another person's bathroom stall is worse than bombarding online "friends" with lewd photos and crude commentary? I don't believe so. Nor so I believe such conduct is appropriate for a grown man, much less a husband and member of Congress. C.A. Herman, Pikesville

So now Larry Craig says he won't give up his seat in the U.S. Senate. And more power to him. Mr. Craig was arrested in June at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where a police officer said the Idaho senator attempted to engage in gay sex. Mr. Craig pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge, fellow Republicans threatened an ethics investigation, and the Idaho senator pledged to resign by the end of September. Last week, Mr. Craig's lawyers appeared in court to request a withdrawal of his plea.

WASHINGTON -- Seeking to salvage his reputation and quell the media storm stirred by his guilty plea to disorderly conduct charges, Sen. Larry E. Craig of Idaho yesterday denied making a sexual advance to an undercover officer in a men's room. "I am not gay and never have been," the Republican lawmaker declared at a Boise news conference with his wife, Suzanne, at his side. But even as he denied wrongdoing, Senate GOP leaders called for an ethics investigation. His case sent shock waves through Republican circles here and in his home state.

WASHINGTON - Like many 24-year-olds, Matthew Slutsky keeps his iPod close at hand. He listens to it going to work, doing errands, walking down the street - whenever he is "on the go," he says. But some of the most listened-to names in Slutsky's iPod are not today's hottest bands; they're politicians and political pundits. Every morning, he downloads the latest "AfterNote," a politics newscast from ABC, and listens to it on his way to his job at a political consulting firm. Slutsky also listens to former Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards and to Al Franken, talk show host on the liberal Air America radio network.

They're knock-offs. But knock-offs of priceless works of art, and the fickle world of fine art can't seem to decide where they belong. Main hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art? Or leaky warehouse in Queens? Hundreds of plaster replicas of Greek statues and Renaissance sculptures - made in the 1800s so American art students could see the great works without schlepping to Europe - have lived in climate-controlled glory and U-Haul hell as they've fallen in and out of fashion. Six of the pieces moved yet again, this time to a Baltimore art studio, where they're getting the type of TLC lavished on the Sistine Chapel.

Clinton will return $850,000, aides say WASHINGTON -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign said yesterday that it will return $850,000 in donations gathered by Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu, who is accused of violating election laws and is under federal investigation. The New York senator previously had planned to give to charity $23,000 she received from Hsu for her presidential and senatorial campaigns and her political action committee, HillPac. About 260 donors will receive refunds this week totaling about $850,000 from the campaign, Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said.
