CHICAGO - In its first opportunity to take a stand on affirmative action, the Bush administration is taking a U-turn by deciding not to change directions. If that sounds a little wacky, just remember that we're talking about politics. Mr. Bush's administration filed a brief with the Supreme Court that lets the Clinton-era policy stand. It has asked the Supreme Court to uphold a Department of Transportation program the Clintonites defended to help minority contractors. Before the filing, Mr. Bush spoke little about affirmative action.

All year long, I write myself little notes on things I'd like to look into or write about. They are quickly written and seem to be just as quickly lost. (I suspect the dogs hide the ones about "exciting new veterinary procedures.")But they never disappear completely. Scrawled in some kind of code (pets&cmputers," "trtle vid") that I usually can figure out after a little consideration, they seem to surface at this time of year, when the huge effort of dealing with both fleas and The Big Shed touches off a general -- and usually short-lived -- interest in spring cleaning.

"The Letters of Gertrude Stein and Thornton Wilder," edited by Edward M. Burns and Ulla E. Dydo with William Rice. Yale University Press. 436 pages. $35.It would be difficult to find two authors whose works diverge more in style and structure than Thornton Wilder and Gertrude Stein. Wilder's limpid, engaging prose and accessible story lines often mask his works' depth and critics too easily dismiss him as a popularizer of great ideas. Gertrude Stein assembled streams of laborious, repetitive sentences into lengthy meditations on a few recurrent themes.
