From their Westminster home, two sisters are waging a campaign to save the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. Along the way, they are forming a new community. They mail postcards, make phone calls and host fund-raisers in their backyard--anything to persuade California Cherokees to vote for the leader they think can rescue the country's second-largest tribe from its beleaguered state.

In a powerful rejection of the state's political Establishment, Massachusetts voters Tuesday chose two outsiders, Democrat John R. Silber, and Republican William F. Weld to run for governor in November. With 75% of the precincts counted, Silber, president of Boston University, had 53% of the vote, against 44% for former state Atty. Gen. Francis X. Bellotti. Lt. Gov. Evelyn Murphy, who withdrew from the race earlier, scored 3% of the vote.

Eclipsed for two years by the ideological energy emanating from the other wing of the Capitol, the Senate is about to generate its own legislative heat and light as Republicans exercise control of Congress for another two years. And the unquestioned master of this political universe is Sen. Trent Lott, the telegenic Mississippian who will lead a revitalized and reinforced band of Senate Republicans when the 105th Congress convenes in January.

A presidential primary season that opened with great promise for Republicans is entering its second half with a flawed front-runner and shaky prospects for victory in the fall. Mitt Romney won six states Tuesday, extending his lead in convention delegates. But in some respects he came out of the day in worse shape than he began it. His scrappy rival, Rick Santorum, has been reinvigorated by wins in three states, and Romney's hopes for a swift end to a brutal GOP campaign have disappeared.

They crowded into a cavernous auditorium in this hard luck city for their marching orders, more than 2,000 soldiers in what was described as the fight for "the most important issue facing Western civilization in our time": the preservation of marriage "as a holy covenant between God, a man and a woman." Pray, they were told. Vote in November. Write your senator; here's the address. Men were advised to do the dishes at home, and women to hug their husbands, whether they wanted to or not.

Early in the week of June 13, 1994, the editors of Time and Newsweek magazines knew they had a cover story for that week's editions. Over the next 10 months, Newsweek published six cover stories on the Simpson case and more than 100 Simpson stories and items all told. Many broke new ground and were quoted in other publications and applauded by other journalists. Time, meanwhile, published only one other Simpson cover until the issue before the verdict, 16 months later.
