CLOUDY CLOUDY Imus admits going too far NEW YORK — Don Imus apologizing to President Clinton? Sure sounds like it. The syndicated radio talk-show host insulted the Clintons to their faces in a dinner speech last year. "It wasn't whether it was funny or not; it was whether it was appropriate. Now that I've had time to think about it, it was hideously inappropriate," Imus said in George magazine's June issue. Just last fall, Imus defended the cracks as good for business. At the 1996 Radio-Television Correspondents' Association Dinner, Imus joked about Clinton's alleged extramarital affairs and the first lady's alleged financial peccadilloes. The Clintons were sitting a few feet away. "We all know you're a pot-smoking weasel, that you once ate an apple fritter the size of a baby's head and that you actually run a 12-minute mile," Imus said. Terkel ends radio career CHICAGO — Studs Terkel is giving up the radio show he's done for 45 years. The 85-year-old oral historian is going off the air at WFMT-FM to become a distinguished scholar at the Chicago Historical Society and develop an archive of his interviews, documentaries and other work.

Flynt hustles magazine CINCINNATI — Hustler publisher Larry Flynt showed up Wednesday on a downtown square to give away copies of the magazine in the city where he was put on trial for obscenity 20 years ago. Flynt, who uses a wheelchair, was mobbed by more than 500 people, some chanting "Larry, Larry" and waving money to buy the sexually explicit magazine that hasn't been on sale in Hamilton County since Flynt's obscenity case 20 years ago. Flynt, portrayed in the movie "The People vs. Larry Flynt" last year, was convicted in 1977 of pandering obscenity and engaging in organized crime for trying to sell Hustler here. The conviction was overturned, but stores haven't carry the magazine out of fear that they would be prosecuted, too. From Wire Service Reports T ADVICE Dad should ask son about letter left in computer Dear Ann Landers: A few months ago, I purchased a used computer from my son and have learned to use it. My son and I have not always had the best of relationships, but things had been peaceful recently. Several days ago, I explored a file in the computer that I had not seen before. I was disturbed to find a five-page letter addressed to me in which my son went into a tirade about how I had mistreated him all of his life. There were pages of comparisons between the exemplary life he has lived and the failure his brother has been. He expressed bitter resentment that I have not disowned and publicly denounced his brother. His mother and I have helped both our sons financially, but according to this let- ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. ter, we have not helped him enough. He speaks with contempt about a recent gift because it was not as much as he expected. I was hurt by this letter, and my first inclination was to confront him. After thinking about it awhile, I decided to simply delete the letter from the computer and let sleeping dogs lie. I figured that even though he had written the letter, he didn't send it. Now I am wondering if I did the right thing. Should I let him know I found the letter and was hurt by it, or should I keep quiet? — Sad Dad in D.C. Dear Dad: While I do not go along with everything Sigmund Freud said, I do agree with him that there are no "mistakes." While your son may not have consciously left that letter on the computer, he wanted you to see it. Instead of feeling "hurt," take this opportunity to talk to your son about his feelings of sibling rivalry and his notion that he is somehow entitled to more than TV TONIGHT you have given him. This young man sounds extremely angry, and it may well be that his anger is coming from a place that has nothing to do with you. I hope the two of you can work it out. Dear Ann Landers: When I was 15, I was drinking and smoking pot. When that didn't get me high enough, I went on to bigger and better drugs. By age 25,1 was using methamphetamines and anything else I could get my hands on. It didn't take long before the dope took control of my life, and I lost my wife, three children, my home, my job, car, everything. I was in and out of jail, became paranoid, stopped eating and sleeping and heard my name coming out of the walls. I overdosed several times, hoping I would die, figuring that hell would be a lot better than the life I was leading. Two years ago, I called my uncle who lived in another state and told him about my messed-up life. He was working on his own recovery and wanted to help me. Most importantly, he got me into Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. I went to six meetings a week and learned how to be honest, to love and to be loved. Today, I'm 30 years old and have been clean and sober for 20 months. I have bad days, but I know they will pass. The rush I get now comes from sharing my recovery with others and realizing how blessed I am. I even got my three children back. Please tell people my story. They need to know it can be done. If I can do it, they can, too. — Nebraska Miracle Dear Nebraska: You told them, and in a way I never could. Thank you on behalf of all the people you helped today. Testimony such as yours is powerful.
