William Kennedy Smith, who was found not guilty in a highly publicized rape case in December 1991, served as a medical volunteer in Somalia for a month, a spokeswoman for Albuquerque's University of New Mexico medical school disclosed last week. She said that the nephew of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy left for Somalia on Feb. 4 and returned March 3. The duty counted as an elective course. Smith is completing his first year of residency. THINGS GETTING BETTER The Duchess of York, in a newspaper interview that appeared Thursday, apologized to the British public for her behavior, saying: "I've messed up my life.

The trial is over. It's safe to leave the front page around where the kids can see it. Now, in the aftermath, we have a phalanx of analysts talking about winners and losers. The defense and the prosecution. Willie and the woman. Men and women. It's the last set of "opponents" that seems the most curious to me. The idea is going around that William Kennedy Smith's acquittal sends a "wrong signal" to the country. That it's "bad for women. " A handful of activists have said that this proves how hard it is for any woman to be believed.

When Hillary Rodham Clinton's name became the subject of debate several weeks ago, I finally had enough! A recent sampling of Americans revealed the majority thinks the President's wife should drop "Rodham" and only use Hillary Clinton. Perhaps it is just me, but with issues like the economy, health-care reform and gays in the military, is Hillary Rodham Clinton's name really a critical issue? Most importantly, is it really anyone else's concern? A news morsel surfaced last week, telling us that the former Second Lady will now go by the name of Marilyn Tucker Quayle at her Indianapolis law firm.

If I'm following this correctly, in the months since she first accused Mike Tyson of rape, Desiree Washington, Miss Black Rhode Island, has offered the following accounting of herself and her motives: She isn't interested in money, and she only pressed charges because Tyson didn't say he was sorry. What she really wanted was to put the whole incident behind her and get on with her life. She only pressed charges because Tyson needed help. She turned down a million-dollar offer to drop the prosecution - a charge, incidentally, that the U.S. attorney in Indianapolis has been looking into for several months.

ABOUT A YEAR AGO, Neil Diamond finally revealed the inspiration for his song "Sweet Caroline. " He of the impressive sideburns said that it was while looking at a picture of Caroline Kennedy in the '60s that he was moved to write his signature song. Aside from the slightly creepy aspect of a grown man taking a prepubescent teen as his muse (although Dante did some mean stuff with his own Beatrice), it reminded all of us just how important the Kennedy family was - and is - to the modern American psyche.

For a conservative Republican who often has locked horns with the President, Sen. Orrin Hatch lately has been surprisingly eager to provide his rival with a road map for political survival. Last month, before President Clinton's appearance in front of independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr's grand jury, Hatch said publicly that Clinton could put the sex scandal behind him by telling all and apologizing. When that didn't happen, Hatch exploded on national television and later called the President a "jerk.

You think you know a guy. Then you find out in court that when he's not in the press box calling a game for NBC, he's in a hotel bedroom, biting his date. Or talking dirty on the phone, watching pornographic videos, seeking three-way sex and wearing women's underwear. Now you know too much about Marv Albert. And it ain't over yet. Intimate details of Albert's sexual appetites with his longtime Virginia lover were bared in public yesterday as the 56-year-old sportscaster's trial for assault and forcible sodomy began.

Why do Americans love to sacrifice women on the altar of ancient stereotypes by portraying them as "scorned women" and "congenital liars"? You'd think we could have gotten a little more inventive about women in the past 300 years. By slinging mud at Hillary Rodham Clinton, William Safire became only the latest to engage in this sort of negative name calling. A few years ago, Anita Hill was accused of lying, either because she was "vindictive," had a "martyr-type complex," was a "spurned or scorned woman," or was "out of touch with reality.

MICHAEL JACKSON'S PROBLEMS AREN'T RACIALLY BASED The NAACP recently held a news conference in Los Angeles, protesting the coverage of Michael Jackson's current woes by the media and denouncing them for reporting "negative allegations rather than the good that is being attempted in the African American community. " The current level of coverage of Mr. Jackson's problems is no different from those of Woody Allen, William Kennedy Smith or Prince Charles and Princess Diana, to name only a few recent targets of media frenzy.

Last Thursday Tupac Shakur shared with two others a woman he previously had consensual sex with "as a reward for his boys. " So says Big Apple prosecutor Melissa Mourges, who's handling the sex attack case against the rap star and two of his buds. "He wanted to thank them for taking good care of him," she said. After the attack in the $350-a-night Manhattan hotel suite, Mourges said the rapper told his 20-year-old victim that she shouldn't complain because "millions of other women" would've traded places with her. Shakur, 22, who's shooting a movie in New York, has turned down requests for interviews, but his lawyer called the accusations "preposterous" and called the victim a gold digger.

Taunts about his sensational Palm Beach rape trial and an insult aimed at his date sent William Kennedy Smith into a rage early Saturday that ended with his arrest in Virginia for punching a bouncer in a barroom brawl. Smith, acquitted in 1991 of raping a 30-year-old Florida woman at the sprawling Kennedy estate in Palm Beach, could face a maximum of one year in prison for blindsiding a bouncer outside an Alexandria, Va., bar. "My friends and I were hassled, baited and insulted by people who wanted to pick a fight with me," Smith said through his lawyer, Greg Craig.

The publication of Joe McGinniss' pseudo-biography "The Last Brother" has produced nearly unanimous denunciations by reviewers and commentators. McGinniss is more than a fly on the wall - he is a synapse in the brain of Sen. Edward Kennedy, knowing his thoughts, analyzing his motives and the motives of others, and describing incidents and feelings by liberally quoting those who interviewed the subjects, including members of the Kennedy family (McGinniss did not). When in doubt about the facts, McGinniss, some reviewers have charged, simply makes them up. Even if everything in McGinniss' book were true (and much of it apparently is not, if one is to believe the testimony of those who witnessed the events or who interviewed those who did)
