A leader needs intestinal fortitude for the hard work of summits, and perhaps fortitude of the liver as well. President Clinton has the endurance of a draft animal when it comes to doing without sleep, but this jaunt to Eastern Europe is also testing his ability to absorb vodka in a region where real men are expected to down it by the glass. In the diplomatic equivalent of a drop-by in Kiev on Wednesday night, Clinton politely matched Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk belt-for-several-belts.

The "Readings" section of the July Harper's magazine contains the text of an unusual emergency phone call, which begins this way: Dispatcher: Sheriff's Department. How can I help you? Caller: Yeah, I'm over here at the Burger King drive-thru in Laguna Niguel, I think. Dispatcher: Uh huh. Caller: I asked them four different times to make me a Western Barbecue Burger. OK, they keep giving me a hamburger with lettuce, tomato and cheese, onions, and I said I'm not leaving.

Smokers on the go are always a step ahead in plotting when and where they can get that next nicotine fix. On a day trip with the kids in the back of the car and a wife with an attitude about secondhand smoke, they finesse with frequent pit stops blamed on the bladder. But deep dread sets in when, boarding a no-smoking airliner, they know there is no finesse. That's a given. But what is less defined are the anti-smoking laws in the countries that you plan to visit.
BUSINESS

McDonald's expanded its business here beyond Big Macs into real estate Tuesday, opening a sleek, downtown office tower that houses the second of the fast-food chain's restaurants in Russia. Hundreds of hungry Muscovites lined up to sample the famed fare and to gawk at the black, glass and chrome building, rising 12 stories above Moscow's Ogareva Street, just two blocks from the Kremlin.

Far from the burdens of office, away from skinheads and European currency wrangles, German Chancellor Helmut Kohl intends to laze away some summer days at the Austrian lakefront town of Wolfgangsee, riffling through a little light reading he brought with him: "The Power of Stupidity," by French philosopher Andre Glucksman.
