"Telling the Truth: Why Our Culture and Our Country Have Stopped Making Sense - and What We Can Do About It," by Lynne V. Cheney. Simon and Schuster. 255 pages. $23 America is in trouble. The humanities have been hijacked by radicals addled from overexposure to French deconstructionist thought; these postmodern intellectuals believe that objectivity is nonexistent and power is everything. Worse yet, their ideas have permeated every corner of American life from freshman English composition to high school history, from art museums and movies to government itself.

Five years ago, Lynne V. Cheney, who chairs the National Endowment for the Humanities, co-authored (with Victor Gold) "The Body Politic," a satire on the vacuousness of U.S. presidential campaigns. On the cover page of that book was an aphorism from Machiavelli: "The great majority of mankind is satisfied with appearances, as though they were realities."Half a decade later, Ms. Cheney is living proof that Machiavelli was right. She is out with a "report" on the "state of the humanities in higher education."

WASHINGTON - When you get a cold, the usual doctor's orders are to drink fluids and get plenty of rest. And that's what Vice President Dick Cheney was doing - "kind of taking the day easy" - his wife, Lynne, said yesterday on CNN's Late Edition. Cheney, 63, complained of shortness of breath Saturday after returning to Washington from a hunting trip to South Dakota. Because of his history of heart disease - he has had four heart attacks and has an implanted defibrillator to control any episodes of irregular heartbeat - his doctors sent him to George Washington University Hospital for tests.

Tuesday is the 139th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln's famous speech at the dedication of the national cemetery in Gettysburg, Pa., for the Union dead from the costly Civil War battle there in July 1863. The anniversary will be marked a living-history presentation and memorial services starting at 10 a.m. at the national cemetery. Lynne Cheney, wife of the vice president, will be the featured speaker. Tuesday's ceremonies will complete this weekend's activities in Gettysburg, where a Remembrance Day parade and other events have been traditional, almost since that first sad remembrance day on Nov. 19, 1863.

Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, visited one of Baltimore's improving elementary schools yesterday to spread congratulations and promote Direct Instruction, the curriculum credited with bolstering the school's test scores. Cheney paid a morning call on City Springs Elementary, fielding questions at an assembly and then visiting first-grade reading and fifth-grade history classes. Teachers at the East Baltimore school, in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods, tried to carry on a normal schedule as Cheney and aides, reporters, city school officials and Secret Service agents marched through the school.

WASHINGTON - Earlier this year, when Lynne Cheney was shopping for shoes at a suburban Virginia mall, the saleswoman helping her looked around and remarked to the vice president's wife: "Do you notice all the security? I think Mrs. Powell or Mrs. Cheney must be here." Few who had followed her career would have guessed that this outspoken, at times combative, conservative would assume such a low profile in the Bush administration that she could try on pumps unrecognized. Given her credentials as one of the premier forces in the incendiary "culture wars" of the past quarter-century, analysts predicted that Cheney would emerge as a highly vocal and visible second lady, a political spouse who'd be "hard to muzzle," as one colleague said at the time, an influential presence in the mold of Hillary "Buy-one-get-one-free" Clinton.

WASHINGTON - Even as Dick Cheney was tapped this week to be George W. Bush's running mate, there was, and still is, a buzz around town that the Texas governor, if elected president, will make Cheney his education secretary - Lynne Cheney, that is.

BOSTON -- Let me see if I have this right. The Republicans are now accusing the Democrats of being insensitive to gay Americans? Or to one gay American, at least? After John Kerry mentioned Mary Cheney in the third debate, talk-radio hosts finally found a lesbian they wanted to protect. Even the homophobic wing of cable TV rallied to the support of a family with a gay offspring. Meanwhile, Dick Cheney described himself as "a pretty angry father." And Lynne Cheney said of the senator: "This is not a good man."

Lynne V. Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, told about 85 people at the Enoch Pratt Free Library last night that they don't know what obstacles are - not compared to what abolitionist and orator Frederick Douglass endured. "You think you've got obstacles to overcome," Cheney said. "Look at what this man did." Cheney's remarks followed a dramatic presentation by Frederick Douglass IV and his wife, B.J. Douglass, that chronicled his great-great-grandfather's escape from slavery in Baltimore on Sept.

College professors are decrying a national report that castigates them for criticizing the United States in the aftermath of Sept. 11, saying it reads like a blueprint for a blacklist. The report, published by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, details more than 100 examples of what its authors call a prevailing "blame America first" sentiment on college campuses. The politically well-connected nonprofit association, founded in 1995 by Lynne Cheney, the wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, believes American students are graduating without a proper appreciation for what makes America great.

When Sen. Barry Goldwater, dubbed "Mr. Conservative," learned that his grandson and grandniece were gay, he worked for new laws that would protect their civil rights. When Newt Gingrich became speaker of the House, and his lesbian half-sister, Candace, became a gay activist, he took a more neutral stance. "It's a free country," he told the media. California state Sen. William "Pete" Knight has been estranged from his son since learning four years ago that he is gay. And now, Dick and Lynne Cheney are faced with their decision, how to handle in public what is essentially a private matter: the sexual orientation of their daughter, Mary.
