I stayed home Thursday to watch the Simpson murder trial on television, not for the pictures and words as much as to check out something called interactive TV. It's a dialogue between the viewers and the anchor, the hottest thing on the amorphous road called the information superhighway where people communicate, share opinions and even fall in love. The superhighway and its various side roads are the linchpin of House Speaker Newt Gingrich's conservative new world.

In Hollywood where a deal is not always a deal, a strange deal was struck last week between the cable network E! Entertainment Television and the Los Angeles chapter of the National Organization for Women.
