Washington is not a town that readily warms to the "nothing-can-be-done" school of thought. So when John J. DiIulio, Princeton University's resident crime expert and one of Washington's in-vogue thinkers, recently sat down to lunch with a dozen media and think-tank heavies, his grim prognosis on violence in America was tough gristle for most of his audience to swallow.

When President Bush unveiled his long-promised plan to give federal money to faith-based organizations that help the poor and troubled, he was keeping one of his earliest campaign pledges to religious conservatives. He was also rekindling one of the most sensitive debates in American history: the relationship between church and state. Yet the man Bush picked to lead the effort, 42-year-old Democrat John J. DiIulio Jr.

The director of President Bush's program to expand religious groups' role in providing social services said Friday that he will resign, the latest setback to an initiative that has been beleaguered from its start. The resignation of John J. DiIulio Jr. as director of the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, while not entirely unexpected, nonetheless surprised many observers.

Massachusetts Gov. Michael S. Dukakis has been unfairly criticized by Vice President George Bush on the issue of inmate furloughs, prison experts said today, calling the program a necessary correctional tool. Bush has repeatedly accused Dukakis of being soft on crime. The vice president cites the Massachusetts furlough program, which allowed a murderer without chance for parole to get a weekend pass and go to Maryland where he raped a woman and attacked her fiance.

I am an Orthodox Jew, and I give much of my charitable money to Jewish organizations. I do not, however, want the government to start putting its welfare energies into "faith-based" organizations, even if that were to benefit the very charities I support. Why not? First, because faith-based organizations cannot solve large-scale, ingrained social problems like the lack of decent education and health care available to the poor.

The important drug question is not, "What did George sniff and when did he sniff it?" It is, "How do we handle the legion of nonviolent drug offenders who are now crowding our prisons?" This long-overdue discussion has become an electrified third rail of American politics--a subject neither party has been willing to touch for fear of being incinerated on contact.

It is a compassionate conservative's dream: a community made up of religious people who promote clean living, self-reliance and responsibility. The Mormon church runs one of the tightest ships in the charity business, funneling millions of dollars worth of goods and services to the needy worldwide. But when it comes to President Bush's offer to channel government funds through religious charities, the Mormons' unwavering answer is thanks, but no thanks. "We're neutral.

EVERY THANKSGIVING Day, the president traditionally selects a turkey to be spared the butcher's ax. Much the same thing happened in Colorado last week. President Bush paid a visit to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo., to highlight his administration's commitment to developing renewable energy sources. It was a wonderful idea for an event, except for the slight problem that his administration is not, in fact, committed to renewable energy sources.

President Clinton introduced a national computer database Monday to help track down those who sell guns to young people, further fattening his portfolio of election-year crime-fighting initiatives. Under a $2-million pilot program, a wide range of information about guns used in crimes by young people will be fed into the database from police in 17 cities. The data will be made available to local and federal prosecutors in hopes of tracing and prosecuting rogue gun dealers.

Doug Wead was presumably aware of the commonly held view that it isn't very nice to secretly tape-record conversations with your friends and then release those tapes to the New York Times. Wead also could no doubt have surmised that when he did so, the friend in question, George W. Bush, would not react with gratitude. (Especially because one tape revealed Bush essentially admitting to past marijuana use.
