Whether they wear silk and tails or jeans and flak jackets, many well-dressed celebrities are adding one accessory to their attire these days -- a red ribbon.Hundreds of movie stars donned ribbons on their lapels or shoulder straps at the 64th Annual Academy Awards last week. Symbolizing support for AIDS awareness and research, the ribbons have become a common sight on televised awards shows since the Tony Awards in June 1991.At least one politician also wears the symbol -- Democratic presidential hopeful Jerry Brown's red ribbon has become as conspicuous as his turtleneck sweaters.

President Clinton's scheduled visit to Mayfield Woods Middle School today has left no detail of the Elkridge school unexamined -- including the American flag hanging on the pole outside.Deemed too small by the Secret Service, it was among the many items to be spruced up or replaced in preparation for Howard County's first presidential visit since President Jimmy Carter sang "Georgia on My Mind" with Willie Nelson at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in 1978."When you're dealing with so many people, it's not easy, but I think preparations have gone well," said Jesse Smith, principal of Mayfield Woods.

WASHINGTON -- As Kenneth W. Starr has demonstrated over and over in the past several months, his role as independent counsel and chief presidential inquisitor did not end -- as many thought it should -- when he submitted to Congress his report of possibly impeachable offenses by William Jefferson Clinton.Starr has repeatedly inserted himself into the impeachment process, provoking a crescendo of criticism and bewilderment that reached a new peak on Capitol Hill yesterday.After learning that Starr went to federal court on Friday to force Monica Lewinsky to talk with the 13 Republican House managers who are prosecuting Clinton in the Senate, Democrats and White House lawyers assailed the independent counsel yesterday, calling him the "14th manager of the House team" and questioning his motives.

Jeremy Irons was the first celebrity to wear the red AIDS ribbon, and he is among the ranks of celebrities who have abandoned it.When the actor pinned the scarlet grosgrain loop on his lapel as host of the 1992 Tony Awards in New York City, he was on a mission to bring attention to the AIDS epidemic.Patrick O'Connell, founder of a group called New York-based Visual AIDS, had come up with the idea.No one explained the ribbon's meaning that night, but people noticed it and wondered. Within months, other celebrities had adopted the ribbon as a de rigueur evening accessory.
