Independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr says that he and his top deputy have often spoken to reporters on a not-for-attribution basis about their investigation of President Clinton and his relationship with former White House intern Monica S. Lewinsky, sometimes discussing sensitive information about what witnesses have told prosecutors.

British police said Thursday that they had seized $6 billion worth of suspected U.S. bonds after smashing a major international drug trafficking ring. If the bonds are genuine, the seizure is huge: The wealth of the late Colombian drug baron Pablo Escobar was estimated by Fortune magazine in the late 1980s at $2 billion.

One man remembered taking baths in a big metal tub. Another man had skinned a skunk on his way to school and was sent home because he smelled so bad. A third stole watermelons for fun. These folks--and about 150 other men and women--gathered at Knott's Berry Farm on Saturday to remember the good times they had in the small Midwestern town of Boone, Iowa. They're part of a society formed in memory of the town, which boasts ownership of what they describe as the last steam engine train.

Late in his Whitewater criminal investigation, independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr on Friday hired two veteran federal prosecutors, one to work in the nation's capital and the other in Little Rock, Ark. Coming to Washington will be Assistant U.S. Atty. Solomon L. Wisenberg, a specialist in complex white-collar and financial institution fraud prosecutions. Wisenberg has been a federal prosecutor for the past decade, most recently in the western district of Texas.

Internal deliberations on whether President Clinton should be indicted became so serious last year that prosecutors on the staff of former Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr took "a straw vote" on the issue, according to federal court testimony Friday. The disclosure came during the contempt-of-court trial of Charles G. Bakaly III, Starr's former counselor and chief spokesman, who is charged with lying to a federal judge in connection with an investigation of a leak to the press.

Using a rare tactic, prosecutors put a former Whitewater grand juror on the witness stand at Susan McDougal's trial Wednesday to testify that Kenneth W. Starr's investigators were after "the facts" and not out to get President Clinton. McDougal's lawyer responded by subpoenaing a top Starr deputy. In a flurry at the end of a day in which three former grand jurors testified for the prosecution, attorney Mark Geragos issued a subpoena to deputy independent counsel W. Hickman Ewing Jr.

Linda Tripp was not in court but a cadre of one-time aides to ex-independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr--who used her secretly recorded audiotapes to help build a case against President Clinton--rallied to her defense Monday. One year after Clinton's impeachment, Tripp--extolled by supporters as a courageous whistle-blower for helping expose the Monica S. Lewinsky scandal but vilified by her critics as a treacherous friend--was in the spotlight again.

Independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr continued Monday to counter the fallout from an interview he granted with a start-up magazine, accusing its publisher of distorting his comments. In a one-page statement, Starr accused Steven Brill, the publisher who interviewed him and wrote the article, of using a quotation out of context to support Brill's conclusion that the independent counsel has leaked confidential investigative information to reporters.

Why not gloat? Everyone, including top White House spokespersons, tells us that the acquittal of the president should not be treated as an occasion for rejoicing, but, sorry, I find myself just thrilled by this turn of events, and I don't mind saying so. If the opposing team that tried to destroy the president were just a bunch of good-hearted fellows who'd had a run of bad luck, well, yes, it would be in poor taste to excessively celebrate their defeat. But that's not the game that was played.
