It is quite ironic that in his first answer (interview, Opinion, April 4), Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) promotes the rotted underbelly of the American political system as a symbol of its health. While Frank defends partisanship, the intellectual property bill demonstrates the complete lack of any meaningful debate on the large issues. Frank filled the airwaves and newspapers last year with cynical quips concerning sexual peccadilloes. For this he was applauded by the Democratic Party establishment.

The campaign headquarters of Bill Clinton and Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. offer a study in contrasts. Here are some facts and impressions gathered from visits to the Manhattan offices of the two Democrats who face off in today's Democratic presidential primary. Clinton HQ opening: four months ago. Brown HQ opening: two weeks ago. Before that: Volunteers made phone calls from home. Desk computers in sight at Clinton HQ: too many to count. Desk computers in sight at Brown HQ: zero.

The Raiders cut a draft choice, their first of the 1989 training camp, releasing Charles Jackson, a defensive tackle from Jackson State, Friday. He was their No. 10 selection. They also released inside linebacker Eric Snelson, a free agent from Stanford who was a starter all last exhibition season in the absence of holdout Matt Millen.

In today's installment of Raider Cutdown Hijinks, we find the team re-acquiring Otis Wilson and getting set to bring a cornerback back, too. Anyone for a Mike Haynes resurrection? You've got it. "I'll be there tomorrow," Haynes said from his home Tuesday night. Haynes, the 36-year-old nine-time all-pro, was cut without ceremony Monday. His life as a civilian was brief but eventful. A few hours after he cleared waivers Tuesday, Al Davis called and invited him back.

Never loath to shovel an extra $100,000 into the breach, the Raiders struck again on the Plan B market Tuesday, signing Cincinnati guard Max Montoya, who was left unprotected despite playing in three of the last four Pro Bowls. Instead, the Bengals tried to make a separate deal with Montoya, and the Raiders outbid them. Before exposing him, Montoya says the Bengals renegotiated his $475,000 contract upward "a little bit," in the hope he'd spurn all offers. The Raiders then raised the ante a lot.

It took the littlest Viking, Leo Lewis, to overcome the grotesque play of Minnesota's three-headed quarterback monster. The 5-foot-8, 170-pound Lewis had the Vikings' first punt-return touchdown in 19 years Sunday, leading the Vikings to a 24-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. "We needed something to spark us," said Lewis, whose 78-yard return with 5:48 left in the third quarter gave the Vikings a 17-7 lead. "The defense was holding its own, but the offense has definitely been struggling."

Otis Wilson, a star of the Raider free-agent recruiting class, made his first appearance at the team's facility Wednesday, and lived up to his billing: agile, mobile and verbal. Within minutes, he had picked up his share of the dialogue with his former Bear coach, Mike Ditka. Did Ditka sniff that Wilson's surgically repaired left knee, bad back and nine years of experience made him a bad risk?
