Surprising no one, Acting Gov. Jane Swift declared Thursday that she will be a candidate for the state's top office in 2002. Swift, 36, has occupied the coveted corner office of the gold-domed statehouse since April, when fellow Republican Paul Cellucci abandoned the governorship to become U.S. ambassador to Canada. After several missteps as lieutenant governor, a very pregnant Swift took office with low approval ratings and widespread skepticism about her ability to do the job.

As a child, bleeding in his joints caused by hemophilia tortured his limbs. As a young man, a contaminated transfusion left him with the virus that causes AIDS. Now Bob Massie is the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, perhaps the first HIV-positive candidate for statewide office. "I'm very, very aware that you only have a certain time on this Earth and some people have more and some have less," he said, "and the goal is to live life to the fullest within that span.

When Boston police Det. Kathleen O'Toole disclosed to her supervisors 10 years ago that she was pregnant, they let her decide when to exchange her beat for an office job. They didn't ask if she could run up 10 flights of stairs, mow the stationhouse lawn or rope a horse or cow and pull it off a roadway.

State Treasurer Shannon O'Brien scored a strong victory Tuesday in Massachusetts' Democratic gubernatorial primary, setting up a November battle with GOP candidate Mitt Romney in a state that hasn't had a Democratic governor since Michael Dukakis left office in 1991. O'Brien, the Democratic front-runner for months, held off former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert B. Reich, state Senate President Tom Birmingham and former state Sen. Warren Tolman to win the nomination.

Radio talk show host Upton Bell focused on four topics on his program here Monday: Iraq, Boris N. Yeltsin's latest illness, Dr. Jack Kevorkian and the Patriots' decision to abandon Boston for Hartford. "I guarantee you," Bell said as he prepared for his broadcast, "the Patriots will blow everybody else off the air." It's been like that since word leaked out last week that the state's beloved, if also bedraggled, football team was packing up and heading south.

It couldn't have been the best of weeks for acting Gov. Jane Swift. First came the revelation that her heretofore untalked about, 25-year-old gay stepson is angry because Swift, a Republican, opposes same-sex partnerships. Then there was the disclosure that Swift, 36, is actually the fourth wife of the young man's father. She and her husband, 47-year-old Charles T. Hunt III, have never pretended he was not previously married.

Is immigration reform dead? Not if President Bush is willing to challenge conventional wisdom that says the groundbreaking immigration talks underway with Mexico before the Sept. 11 attacks are now moot. To be sure, the terrorist attacks have led to some backlash against foreigners. Congress is likely to approve measures that will make it more difficult for foreigners to enter this country.

Mitt Romney and Rudolph W. Giuliani clashed over taxes Thursday in a flare-up that illustrated a sharpening rivalry between the two leading contenders for the Republican presidential nomination. Campaigning in southern New Hampshire, Romney pounded Giuliani's fiscal record as mayor of New York. The Giuliani campaign snapped back, calling Romney a hypocrite who as governor of Massachusetts showed little restraint with public money.

Tiger Woods hadn't won anywhere since Feb. 14, so his three-stroke victory in the Deutsche Bank Open golf tournament Monday in Heidelberg, Germany, was welcome. So was the $200,000 he earned in his first European tour event on the continent, as well as the reported $1 million in appearance money he got. Woods holed a 25-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole, his only birdie on the back nine, and finished with his third consecutive 68, four under par.

Jane Swift gave birth to a baby girl three weeks before her election as Massachusetts' lieutenant governor in 1998, rankling conservatives who said a woman shouldn't combine career and family. Now she's giving them plenty of reason to say, "I told you so." After a weeklong furor, the state's most prominent working mom apologized Wednesday for using aides to baby-sit and for taking a state police helicopter to get home because 14-month-old Elizabeth Ruth had pneumonia.
