THANK goodness for The Ledger-Enquirer of Columbus, Ga., where an editorialist summed up everyone's objections to Madonna's new book, "Sex," in a few terse paragraphs:"Madonna, who has parlayed a propensity for getting naked into a multimillion-dollar industry, has just released a book. It's titled 'Sex.'"It costs $50 and features pictures of her naked with a variety of men and women and assorted recreational devices and leather goods. It also has words, like: 'This book is about sex. Sex is not love.

I'm going to be accused of being insensitive, sexist, ageist and politically incorrect. And maybe I am. But I can't help it. Some things make me giggle.What I'm talking about is a part of a news story that caught my eye.It's about Sen. Robert Packwood, who is in all sorts of trouble at work and probably at home because he's been accused by at least 10 women of making improper sexual advances.Women's groups are angry at him, and he's going to be investigated by his fellow senators.He's responded by doing what politicians and other public figures do when the going gets tough: He says ol' demon rum made him do it and has checked into a private alky rehab joint.

The tragicomedy of artistic striving has never been more grittily or more sweetly captured than in Anvil! The Story of Anvil. The Canadian heavy-metal band named for a blacksmith's favorite tool failed to build on the iron spike of success that was the group's 1982 album Metal on Metal. Despite a jamming appearance in Japan's 1984 Super Rock Festival, the band fell inexorably into obscurity. This documentary about the group's blip and fall exudes a boundless, generous humor. It will enable even gentle folk-rockers to appreciate the ambitions of men whose earliest works, inspired by the Spanish Inquisition, included the song "Thumb Hang."

I turn the pages, my hands atremble. It seems to me that the course of civilization is being written here, of all places, in Vogue magazine.Once, when life was simpler, first ladies were role models. Now, Hillary, oh Hillary, is a model model. Annie Liebovitz, who is famous for taking pictures of famous people in various stages of undress, has turned her lens on Hillary, who's suddenly no longer just a policy wonk. She's Cindy Crawford with a law degree.When I tell a friend there's a Hillary photo spread in Vogue -- the one with Sharon Stone on the cover -- the first question he asks, as an American male, is, of course, "Is she naked?"

I read with interest Richard J. Goutos' letter "Return prayer to public school" (May 19), describing how in the late 1950s and early 1960s, at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute "a student read a passage from the Bible, then the Lord's prayer was recited ... (and) nobody I know was adversely affected by the practice ... no child was scarred negatively ... no one was forced to participate. " I also attended Poly at that time. The morning ritual was not the problem, as it only lasted a few minutes.

Something was aflutter under those darkly lashed eyes. A new style in faces was flashing from the pages of major magazines. But it looked familiar, particularly to anyone who remembered the makeup of the '60s.Supermodel Claudia Schiffer, in her ads for Guess? jeans, launched a hair and makeup look that has thrilled eyeliner fans of all ages.It wasn't just her Brigitte Bardot look-alike features that signaled a new era in beauty trends. It was the pout of paler lips and the tousled, teased twist of a hairdo that gave momentum to the retro chic appearing in major fashion magazine editorials and advertisements and on fashion leaders.

Miracle mascara We've heard eyelashes described as full. And we've heard them described as thick. But we'd never before heard them described as "D cup" until Bourjois Pump Up the Volume came along. Called the "push-up bra" of mascaras, Pump Up the Volume's silicone-infused formula gives volume to lashes, and the nylon fiber applicator brush helps lashes look thicker by distributing mascara right to the tips and separating them to prevent clumping. Other effective ingredients in the mascara include a mix of waxes and an alkaline polymer.

Britney Spears' opening performance at last night's MTV Video Music Awards was supposed to catapult her back into the pop music stratosphere. But it was little more than an overhyped burlesque show that went splat -- and critics quickly picked over the debris. Decked out in a black sparkly bra and panty set and flanked by writhing dancers, a bloated Spears gave a mechanical performance of her new single, the clubby "Gimme More." It was a far cry from her previous mouth-dropping appearances on the show.

A singular piece of metal is the only evidence that it ever existed; a small, dull, jagged, piece of red hardware."These were the lips," he tells me. "Each time, I've kept the lips."Take these lips. Build a blue-black face around them. Add some big white eyes. Embellish with a cap of wiry dark hair. Put that head on a squat compact body with an outstretched arm.Now, you have the thing this used to be.This used to be a lawn jockey, an accessory of the most manicured American front yards.My visitor and I spent nearly an hour trying to agree on its worth.

The awfulness of Gaza goes on. So does the madness in Iraq and Syria. Wildfires burn through the West, while in Washington, D.C., our do-absolutely-nothing Congress prepares to adjourn, freeing up time for representatives and senators to go home and campaign to be re-elected so they can accomplish nothing for another two years. It seems an opportune time to consider a far less depressing issue, one that, outside of Hollywood and the Redneck Riviera, affects only a small minority: artificial body enhancement, AKA cosmetic surgery or "having a little work done.
