The prison house is a tough school but it saved the young Maurice McIntyre and reconnected him with music. In the late 1960s McIntyre became one of the most passionate and articulate spokesmen of the Chicago-based Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, and an exponent of fiery but spacious "spirit jazz".

Reno investigates White House aide for perjury

TWO JUDICIAL developments threatened President Clinton with yet more trouble yesterday, as the judge in the sexual harassment case brought by Paula Jones announced that she was reviewing Mr Clinton's evidence in that case; and the US attorney general, Janet Reno, opened an investigation into another of Mr Clinton's top aides, Harold Ickes.

Monitor: All the News of the World - Reaction to Clinton's admission of sexual activity

SOME WILL be moved to forgiveness by his belated admissions to the grand jury and on TV. We think it is too late for trust or respect. His shabbiness seems deplorable rather than impeachable. Adultery is not uncommon. Other presidents have been adulterers. Some insist he should not have been put on the spot over sex. He says: "Even presidents have private lives." Maybe so, but he should not have tried to save his skin by being unfaithful to us all.

Boy killers may force change in law

WITH EMOTIONS running high at the powerlessness of the Arkansas courts to issue stiff sentences against two boys who opened fire on their own schoolyard, killing a teacher and four of their schoolmates, state legislators said yesterday they would consider changes in the law in their next session to provide "adult" punishments for serious juvenile offenders.

Boys guilty of schoolyard gun massacre

M is for Monica: an A to Zippergate of the affair

Attorneys. Since this is the United States, these are the only people who have absolutely nothing to lose from Zippergate, whatever the outcome. Bill Clinton has a whole posse. Some, like Bruce Lindsey (see below), come with the job and are paid by the taxpayer, and their conversations, it was recently ruled, may not be confidential. Clinton's personal lawyer is the quiet, non-forthcoming David Kendall. Monica is now on her third team of lawyers: the first set, recommended by a White House trusty, Vernon Jordan, were replaced early on by a friend of the Lewinsky family, William Ginsburg. When Ginsburg appeared to like the limelight too much, setting the record for Sunday TV talk show appearances, he was replaced by Plato Cacheris and Jacob Stein, a couple of established Washington "insiders" who know how to work the system. Everyone who has ever been summoned to testify in the five-year Clinton-related investigation has his/her own attorney, each one making work for many more.
