You can't say it's "hot off the presses." Or "coming to a newsstand near you." Even "this just in" doesn't quite do it.When it comes to publishing in cyberspace, the old cliches don't work anymore. And so it was with this week's debut of Slate, a magazine that arrived not with the day's mail or the latest offerings at the newsstand, but with the double-click of a mouse on computers around the world.While it's not the first to publish online rather than on paper, Slate drew much advance hype because of its sponsor, Microsoft, and its editor -- Michael Kinsley, the ultimate inside-the-Beltway pundit.

In the weeks leading up to the holidays, books -- preferably those with wide girths, glossy covers and discount stickers -- fly off the shelves. Wrapped in neat, rectangular packages, they are handed to their recipients with the obligatory: "I heard it's a must-read." Maybe so. But as with so many of the must-reads, these books become "need-to-reads" -- those that form towering piles by your bedside and gather dust on your shelves. Those that you intend to read, but never will. Those otherwise known as the Great Unread Books.

DAVID DUKE, the ex-Nazi who wants to become fuehrer of Louisiana, was on a TV show the other evening matching wits with a noted liberal journalist.His adversary was Michael Kinsley, a regular on the show "Cross Fire." Kinsley is the show's intellectual left-winger. Patrick Buchanan is the show's intellectual right-winger. The format has them interview some public figure, then snipe at each other's ideology.Anyway, David Duke was the guest and Kinsley tried his best to zing him. However, Duke took advantage of the free air time to make his campaign pitches and remained calm until Kinsley asked him whether he had undergone cosmetic surgery.

It's a tough day today. Not only is it the first Monday of the New Year, but it's the first Monday without a new Amy Fisher movie to look forward to.Or, so you thought.Cheer up, bunky, because I've got news. Remember, we're not stuck with just three networks anymore.Meaning, we can look forward to the Disney channel Amy Fisher movie: "Amy Fisher: Beauty and the Beast."And the Amy Fisher series on Fox, "Unmarried . . . but Heavily Armed."And, of course, CNN will have a few words to say about America's most famous person suspected of having slept with and shot different people named Buttafuoco (let Dan Quayle try to spell that one)

BILL CLINTON gave a great D-Day speech about generations and won over the hearts and minds of the least narrow-minded of his critics.That he is not himself a veteran didn't matter at all. And why should it? Veteran commanders-in-chief are the rule, but there have been plenty of exceptions -- including the one when D-Day occurred.Franklin D. Roosevelt was assistant secretary of the Navy when the U.S. entered World War I. Partly out of the romanticism that still existed about war then and partly because he thought it would be a political liability not to have served, FDR asked the secretary of the Navy for a commission.

Nicaraguan RuleYour Aug. 26 editorial stated that President Violetta Chamorro can't govern Nicaragua "unless she gets rid of the Sandinista infection."That's like saying Bill Clinton should throw all the Republicans out of the House and Senate so he can get his agenda through. Then he should fire all registered Republicans in the armed forces and in government service.If we as a nation can come to respect the African National Congress as a legitimate constructive power in South Africa after years of calling them Communist Marxist thugs and whatever else, then it's time we accept the Sandinistas in Nicaragua.

Kinsleyan TheoryEditor: We are pleased Michael Kinsley (TRB) agrees (Opinion * Commentary, Oct. 14) that the current luxury tax on boats does not make sense and that it is a silly way to tax the rich.However, TRB misses the point entirely when he says that the dire effects of the luxury tax are being grossly exaggerated. They are not.TRB's s ''Kinsleyan Economic Theory'' -- if money is spent elsewhere it creates jobs and if it's saved, that is good, too -- is full of holes.Rich people's money can be, and is being, spent around the globe.

What Knowledge?In The Sun of May 15, a letter from Michael Kernan, who identified himself as a former Washington Post reporter, asks why the press is "frothing at the mouth" to pick on President Clinton when it "protected" George Bush, Lyndon Johnson and John Kennedy by not printing articles about what "they knew" about those three and their interest in women.1. If Mr. Kernan knew of such facts, why didn't he write about them?2. Does he believe presidents should be protected?3. Is he claiming that moral behavior in the White House in not subject to the standards of everyone else?
