A junior high school student who cried when a teacher refused to let her submit a research paper on the life of Jesus has sued the school board for upholding the decision. Kurt Beasley, a Rutherford Institute attorney for Brittney Kaye Settle, says she was given a zero for refusing to select another subject, but the teacher, Dana Ramsey, allowed other students to submit papers on such topics as reincarnation, spiritualism and the occult.

The media simply don't get it! By continuing to bring up President Clinton's "moral turpitude" (so-called) they demonstrate their inability to interpret events except to their own advantage. If the public truly believed everything the media have dished out about Clinton over the years he would have been impeached and ousted at the time of the Monica Lewinsky affair. Even now they are still trying. Constantly we read, "Whatever the public opinion may be . . . ," the implication being negative.

Pedro C. Moreno's evangelical plea (Commentary, Sept. 1) that immigrants should become just Americans, with no other signifiers or adjectives attached, offers nothing new on the topic of American identity. He still believes in old Cold War definitions of assimilation. We are a much more complex nation than that. Any psychologist will tell you that having a self-identity based on "what you are not" or being "not good enough" ruins self-esteem and could lead to other problems (drugs, divorce, crime)

The time has come to call a halt to [independent counsel] Kenneth Starr's investigation, have him prepare and submit his report and let the American people see for themselves what facts he has uncovered as to President Clinton's conduct. We will then decide whether or not Starr should continue. Enough of the perception that he is persecuting the Clintons, as it is becoming increasingly clear that by national consensus he cannot be fair and impartial. If only for the fact that he was peripherally involved in the Paula Jones case in offering to write an amicus brief early on, he should have recused himself.

Paula Corbin Jones hired a direct-mail firm last fall to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for her legal battle against President Clinton, according to documents obtained Friday, but none of the money has gone to the foundation sponsoring her sexual-harassment lawsuit or the lawyers pursuing it. Jones signed a contract in November with Bruce W. Eberle & Associates Inc., which guaranteed her a minimum of $300,000 as long as it could make a profit from the fund-raising campaign.

Paula Corbin Jones will get $200,000 from the $850,000 settlement that ended her sexual harassment case against President Clinton, one of the attorneys said in Little Rock, Ark. The rest will go to her attorneys and the Rutherford Institute, which also assisted Jones in her lawsuit. The money was paid in November but held up by the courts when Jones' former and current lawyers could not agree on how it should be split up.
