WASHINGTON - President Bush spoke last night about cutting taxes, reforming Medicare and fighting AIDS in Africa. But it was all just a warm-up to the singular focus of his speech, and the current mission of his presidency: removing Saddam Hussein from power - with or without the world's support. Bush's forcefully delivered words were either resolute or bellicose, depending on whether the listener agreed with his arguments about the need for regime change in Iraq. In either case, Bush appeared to leave little doubt that an invasion of Iraq was weeks away.

Polling surveys all seem to ask black or white questions that leave little or no room for grays. Take the gambling survey used your recent article "Poll finds support for same-sex marriage, but not gambling" (Sept. 29). I think the question on gambling should have been a bit broader. For example, instead of simply asking "would you vote for expanded gambling Maryland," the survey might have asked "would you vote for allowing table games in Maryland casinos?" Or simply "does Maryland need another casino?"

New York-- --Outside the tents at Bryant Park, the trees are bare; the wind whips through. It is winter, and it is cold. While most of us may be dreaming about the arrival of spring, it is Fashion Week, and fall has arrived. For eight days and nights, big names including Oscar de la Renta, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and Vera Wang are unveiling their fall collections. The mood this fall is a continuation of many of the elements prevalent in recent seasons. Femininity is a major theme. Ruffles, bows and lace are prominent accents.

Tom Fontana, the executive producer of "Homicide: Life on the Street," has a year-end message for fans of the show: Things are going to get better in 1999. In a letter sent to some critics last week, Fontana offered the first public acknowledgement by the producers that the first half of the season has not exactly been a triumph for the award-winning police drama."OK, we know some people think the show has been a little 'off' so far this season," Fontana wrote. "If so, I think that's because we have been playing with a couple of differentelements and adjusting to the voices of the newest characters.

Small is beautiful, No. 1: Tiny printer travels with notebookThey call it a pocket printer. OK, so it might be rather large to actually carry in your pocket, but the Casio PN60i ($499) is shockingly small, lightweight and portable. Measuring 10 inches by 1.85 inches by 2 inches, and barely registering on the scale at a hair over a pound, the PN60i is a worthy companion to a PDA, palmtop or notebook PC. It's amazing how far miniaturization has come.With 360 dots per inch output, the PN60i uses regular paper and can also print transparencies.

It's been some time since Gregory Peck played the executive suited for success in Sloan Wilson's 1956 classic, "The Man with the Gray Flannel Suit."At the time, the gray suit was a staple of the businessman's wardrobe. If a man wanted a successful career, he gave in to uniformity and dressed like a walking tombstone.No doubt, gray means DREARY boring and conservative. Add a buttoned-down, white cotton shirt and rep stripe tie to the average gray suit, and what you get is the opposite of excitement.

For new leaders, a tough act to followWe would like to take this opportunity to congratulate James Robey and the new Howard County Council.We wish you well and the greatest success over the next four years. We would also like everyone to remember the tremendous achievements of Charles Ecker and the Republican-controlled council. We hope you can continue to build on that success.During the 1990s, we were the only major suburban jurisdiction in Maryland not to increase its piggyback tax. While Montgomery, Prince George's and Baltimore counties, among others, increased their piggyback tax, Howard was able to hold the line.

SANTIAGO, Chile - In October 1973, when Augusto Pinochet was beginning to make his mark on Chile, death rode a Puma helicopter. The aircraft carried a six-member army squad led by a general who was a special emissary of Pinochet. The squad roamed the north killing political prisoners, at least 72 in all. Even some officers were horrified. Gen. Joaquin Lagos, then a regional commander in the city of Antofagasta, recalled: "A general of the republic had been my guest for a few hours and ... ordered the murder of 14 prisoners, prisoners who had in their majority surrendered voluntarily, trusting in me. What a barbarity, massacring 14 defenseless prisoners behind my back."

Alibi, by Joseph Kanon. Henry Holt and Company. 406 pages. $26. One never comes away from a Joseph Kanon novel without feeling a little travel weary, and that is a compliment. From Los Alamos to Berlin, and now Venice in his latest and fourth novel, Alibi, Kanon offers such vivid sensory detail that a reader emerges as steeped in atmospherics as a seasoned diplomat with a passport full of visa stamps. You feel initiated, as if you've been let in on some dark and well-kept secrets from some of the 20th century's most pivotal moments.

James Packard listens to the hoopla surrounding Sen. John Kerry's mention of Vice President Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter in this week's presidential debate and sees headway, not political dirty tricks. "Look at the progress we [have] made," said the Rockville real estate developer, who married his partner, Erwin Gomez, in San Francisco when it was legal for a time in February. "Ten or 20 years ago, you couldn't even say the word gay. In high school in my time, kids committed suicide if they were gay because they didn't know how to address it."

It's safe to say that the big Gerhard Richter retrospective at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington will be one of the most important shows in our region this year. Not the most beautiful or the most popular, perhaps (though it's extremely good-looking), but significant because of what it suggests about the place painting occupies in contemporary culture. That Richter is an incredibly versatile artist is beyond doubt. He can paint with the luminous delicacy of Vermeer, as in the lovely 1994 portrait of his wife, Reader, and his 1992 Flowers, or with the deadpan muteness of Warhol, as in Mustang Squadron (1964)
