COLUMN
June 20, 1999
We went to Germany a few weeks ago. It was a good trip, except for some details. In the Black Forest area my wife bought me a T-shirt that has the German coat of arms (I guess that’s what it is), and representations of Munich, Berlin, Heidelberg, Rothenburg, Neuschwanstein and the Schwarzwald, the Black Forest. They’re the nice, pleasant, touristy things. The Frankfurt airport is hardly touristy, and I wouldn’t install Norman Bates in the Tourotel in Munich.

GORE, BUSH STILL SILENT ON KEY ISSUES
June 20, 1999
Tweedledee and Tweedledum? Not quite. Vice President Al Gore and Texas Gov. George W. Bush were obviously reading off similar scripts, or polling data, in their opening campaign tours last week. Listening to them — in English or the practiced Spanish phrases both interjected — you could imagine the late George Wallace saying, “There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between them.” But in fact there will be plenty of disagreements if they wind up as general election opponents — something their challengers still have plenty of time to prevent.
