Which fairy tale was Susan Reimer reading? ("Al and Tipper: They break up, we suffer," June 7.) I cannot imagine spending even one chapter with the wooden, monotoned and artificial Al Gore. His life is about accumulating great wealth and living like a prince. That awkward kiss at the Democratic National Convention obviously turned Albert into a frog. May Tipper live happily ever after.

A Baltimore County man paralyzed from the waist down in a 2004 shooting at Randallstown High School was awarded $21.4 million Monday in a civil case against the two men convicted in the attack. Baltimore County Circuit Judge Kathleen Cox ruled in favor of William "Tipper" Thomas, now 26, who was shot twice outside in the school parking lot about a month before he was scheduled to graduate. The gunmen - Matthew McCullough and Tyrone Brown - did not appear in court Monday and did not have attorneys in the civil case.

They should have stayed together. If not for the kids, then for the rest of us. That seems to be the tone of the national hand-wringing over the news that Al and Tipper Gore are separating after 40 years of marriage. "How could they do that to us?" the chattering class is asking. "Were they even thinking about us? What are we supposed to do at Christmas? And who gets custody of our notion of a good marriage?" At a time when we seem to be at some kind of cosmic peak in marital misbehavior, the Gores were the national model of a successful public marriage.

Political wags are already suggesting that the best presidential debate of the campaign would pit Tipper Gore against Hillary Clinton. Tipper bakes cookies, according to current stereotyping, and Hillary does not. Tipper is the ultimate homemaker, Hillary the high-paid lawyer who spends her odd hours on big corporate boards. Tipper the prudish pecksniff, Hillary the liberated feminist.Both of these political wives are as immersed in the issues, as hopped up with intellectual firepower, as their husbands.

Constance Tipper, 101, a metallurgist whose test for determining the brittleness of steel kept Britain's Liberty ships afloat during World War II, died Dec. 14. in the northwest England town of Penrith. She was a researcher at Cambridge University when Britain began looking for an explanation for why some of its Liberty merchant vessels cracked like glass at sea. Military authorities blamed engineering design or welding, but Ms. Tipper said the problem was with the steel. She developed what is now known as the "Tipper Test" to determine the metal's brittleness.

When Dave Barry booked his summer vacation in New York, little did he know the Democratic National Convention was scheduled for the same time. A lesser man would have pretended not to notice, but Dave, supremely devoted to his craft, insisted on covering the proceedings. Selfless Dave will report on the convention this week while his family is busy tossing down lobster salad at four-star restaurants.New York -- I finally caught up with the New Hillary Clinton. She has replaced the Old Hillary Clinton, who was unpopular with the public because she was going around discussing the issues and acting forceful and just generally appearing to have opinions.

The man who on TV gave us the re-gifter, double-dipper, anti-dentite, low-talker and bad breaker-upper proves to be something else entirely in real life: a great tipper. Jerry Seinfeld left a $40 tip on a $40 lunch tab at Regi's in Federal Hill on Saturday. So says Jessica Pickard, happy recipient of said gratuity. The tab-doubling tip was the only thing that made Seinfeld, in town for an appearance at the Meyerhoff that night, stand out. No funny banter with the server. No witty repartee with the two guys seated with him. No riffs on their wings and wraps.

ELKTON - Ever since she showed up here in a skimpy sundress, fishnet stockings and a red feather boa, Gertie has been the talk of this cozy, old-fashioned town. Fans admire her flamboyant sense of style. Detractors call her a floozy. She made newspaper headlines when she fell (or was pushed) and needed plastic surgery. And she won a local popularity contest. It's quite a bit of buzz for a statue of an elk. Then again, Gertie is an attention getter, a large piece of public art, by far the most conspicuous of eight elk statues on display in this community at the northeastern tip of Maryland.

Al Gore's Diary:Nov. 4 -- Ohhhhhh . . . my head is pounding. Got a major-league hangover. The victory party last night was completely out of control. Clinton was mixing pitcher after pitcher of kamikazes. I was happy sipping an Amstel Light and talking about chlorofluorocarbons and the ozone layer with Ron Brown.

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Al Gore stood under a stoplight and next to a low, chiming bell tower here the other crispy autumn afternoon and, ignoring the distractions, made his pitch to several thousand listeners at an intersection off the Michigan State campus. With his determined, resolute voice and manner, the vice president told the crowd that "prosperity is on the ballot" on Election Day and that Michigan with its 18 electoral votes might well decide the outcome. Only hours after America had adjusted its clocks for standard time, he warned that a vote for his opponent, George W. Bush, would turn the clock back eight years to when the senior Bush was president and Michigan was wracked with recession and high unemployment.

The poet John Donne once wrote of a kiss "which sucks two souls, and vapors both away." The public kiss presidential candidate Al Gore planted on his wife Tipper at the Democratic convention may not have vapored any souls, but it's sucked up plenty of airtime and newspaper pages since it happened. Not since Ellen DeGeneres bussed her lesbian love on television three years ago have tongues wagged so over a simple snog. And not since Michael Jackson's improbable smooch on new wife Lisa Marie Presley during the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards has there been so much speculation about what's behind a kiss.
