For a guy who likes to brag about being a doer, not a talker, Morry Taylor has a lot to say. Folks in this town of 11,000 found that out recently as arguably the most colorful of the Republican presidential candidates held forth during a meet-and-greet gathering at The Hotel. A standing-room-only crowd, upward of 130 northwestern Iowans, jammed into puffy parkas and a stuffy room to hear the business tycoon's plan for running the country in the improbable event that he should get the chance.

The crowded Republican field in next year's presidential campaign has thinned in Rhode Island, where three GOP candidates failed to qualify for the state's March 5 primary. Texas Sen. Phil Gramm, multimillionaire publisher Steve Forbes and conservative commentator Patrick J. Buchanan were not on the list when Secretary of State James Langevin announced the primary slate. That leaves Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas, Sen. Richard G. Lugar of Indiana, former Tennessee Gov.

Key to Election Tables * An asterisk (*) denotes an incumbent candidate; a dagger (**) denotes an appointed incumbent. * A double dagger (***) indicates a race where a runoff election will be held between the top two candidates if no one receives more than half of the vote. * Elected candidates and approved measures--or those leading with 99% of precincts reporting--are in bold type. Runoff elections may be required in nonpartisan races where no candidate receives over 50% of the vote.

PARIS -- An incredulous -- and insulting -- letter from an American capitalist to a Socialist government minister in France has revealed a monumental clash of cultures. Tire magnate Maurice "Morry" Taylor Jr., head of Titan International, did not hold back when he decided to tell Arnaud Montebourg, France's minister for industrial renewal, where he could stick his suggestion that the U.S. businessman take over an ailing French factory. A simple no, or even non, might have sufficed.

Some folks were angry about the inconveniences resulting from last week's partial shutdown of the federal government. Others, like Rep. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach), were angry that not enough was closed. Cox was aghast to learn that in spite of the budget impasse, the outdated federal helium program was deemed "essential" and continued producing hot air. Cox has won House approval to shut down the program, labeled one of the biggest federal boondoggles in recent times.

It's Thursday afternoon, just hours before the GOP candidates' televised debate. While the major presidential candidates are prepping, Richard P. Bosa is working the telephone from home, trying to line up radio interviews. Bosa, a Republican mayor from the northern New Hampshire town of Berlin, has gone on cable television and radio to complain that the "federal candidates are not addressing the issues," such as the loss of manufacturing jobs here. At least he found a forum.
