Hilda Adolfo was struggling to get a bite of food down. That way, she could take her medicine. That way, maybe, she could face another day of talking about the man who put her son Vincent in the ground 11 years ago.Then came the call.It seemed fitting that it was from a television station, showing the Adolfos again just how the stormy legal system could toss their tiny boat about at will.The Maryland Court of Appeals had stayed the execution of Flint Gregory Hunt until at least September, when they will review his case for yet another time since he shot Vincent Adolfo, a Baltimore police officer, on Nov. 18, 1985, while resisting arrest in East Baltimore.

TWO BRUTAL CRIMES. Two disparate punishments. In the eyes of Maryland criminal justice officials, Cheryl Ann Griffin's vicious rape and murder didn't merit the kind of vengeance sought for slain police Officer Vincent J. Adolfo. No matter that Griffin, a single mother, was attacked while reading the Bible in her bed, strangled and struck nine times in the head with a hammer. Baltimore City prosecutors would allow her attacker, Troy A. Emery, to plead guilty to second-degree murder. They wouldn't bother to prosecute the sexual assault at all. Thirty years in prison was the sentence Emery drew, and 10 of those were suspended.

Karen Adolfo's hate is finally leaving her.She will never forgive Flint Gregory Hunt for gunning down her husband, Baltimore police Officer Vincent J. Adolfo, nearly 12 years ago. But as she watched Hunt die by lethal injection early yesterday, the uncontrollable "ugly" feelings that have twisted her heart for all that time began to flow away as surely as the deadly drugs entered the killer's bloodstream."

NEW YORK -- His Ladies, an ever-growing sisterhood of th very rich, the very famous and the very social, were legend. His twice-yearly showings, in the cream-and-gilt luxury of the St. Regis Hotel here, amounted to eagerly anticipated gatherings of the cashmere-and-pearls clan -- always carefully timed to dovetail with the luncheon seating at old-money favorite, La Cote Basque. But suddenly, it's all over.After 25 years, dressing stylish women from the Duchess of Windsor to Nancy Reagan, Adolfo will close his Manhattan made-to-order and ready-to-wear salon April 30.The shy, diminutive designer, who made his mark with luxurious, custom-made knit suits in the style of Chanel, announced that he will close his signature clothing business, which is estimated to produce a wholesale volume of about $12 million annually, to concentrate on his substantial roster of licensees.

Adolfo in an East Baltimore alley.

With lilting, musical lyricism and gentle humor, "Guantanamera" fuses romantic comedy and social satire in a tale of sex, death and socialism in contemporary Cuba.Written and directed by Tomas Gutierrez Alea and Juan Carlos Tabio, who created the Oscar-nominated "Strawberry and Chocolate," "Guantanamera" touches on many of the filmmakers' favorite themes, with their signature light touch: Even as Alea and Tabio poke good-natured fun at a revolution run amok with creeping bureaucracy and paranoia, they celebrate their native country's lush landscape, rich history and resilient sons and daughters.

Death penalty is sentence Hunt deservesYour June 16 article about Flint Gregory Hunt ("Killer of city officer seeks an ugly death") made me sick to my stomach. I really cannot understand why your paper attempts to glorify people like him. He wants people to have nightmares and bad dreams about his execution. Personally I would sit him in the electric chair while he was in the gas chamber and not lose a moment's sleep.I have a remedy for those who say that the death penalty is cruel and unusual punishment for the convicted killer of a police officer.

Stephen M. Alston Jr. remembers the moment more than eight years ago. Twelve jurors in a room, each with the life of Flint Gregory Hunt in his hands, each saying Hunt's life deserved to end."It was a very somber mood," Alston said recently, sitting pensively at his dining room table. "No one was rejoicing. It's something we took very seriously."The Bible says, 'Thou shalt not kill.' But we had a responsibility to uphold the law."As Hunt's execution for the murder of Baltimore police Officer Vincent J. Adolfo draws near, the people who played a role in his fate must confront the finality of what was set in motion so long ago.They are related neither to Hunt nor to Adolfo.

Flint Gregory Hunt does not plan to go gentle into that good night.As the hour of his execution approaches, scheduled for the week of June 30, he does not want to be seen going peacefully, to have the calm death that lethal injection can convey.He wants his passing to be ugly, in the gas chamber, where he thinks it will look like "murder."In an interview yesterday at the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center -- "Supermax" -- in East Baltimore, Hunt spoke of his remorse, his anger, and occasionally, his fear.
