A GOOD consensus is hard to find -- especially on sexual politics today in America.But the infamous rules instituted last year by Antioch College, which require students to give explicit verbal consent before so much as a kiss is exchanged, have created just that.They have provoked indignation (this is a serious threat to individual freedom!) as well as ridicule (can this be serious?).Sexual correctness thus proves a worthy successor to political correctness as a target in public debate.Yet this consensus reveals shared assumptions among both liberals and conservatives about the sexual The question is no longer "Did she say no?"

FOR 64 YEARS, most of the Baltimore Museum of Art's 34 mosaics from ancient Antioch have remained on the beige stone walls of its central court. They blend into the background so well as to be taken for granted by museum-goers circling to the latest show. Actually, the mosaics are not from Antioch proper. The earthquake that demolished that great city in 526 A.D. probably made its floors unrecoverable. Archaeologists would have had to wreck an unremarkable but populated modern town atop the ruins to find out, and did not. This stuff comes from the ancient suburbs of Antioch.

Perhaps the only really important lesson art can teach us is that life goes on, despite the catastrophes that befall it. Civilizations arise and fall and their glittering cities crumble into dust, yet in their ruins we detect a tragic beauty that encourages us to press on: ancient death begets new life. The medieval world lived in an eternity of spirit, but when it rediscovered its classical past, the stasis was broken and a new world struggled into being. We are the heirs of that centuries-old rebirth, and also of the ancient world whose ruins inspired it. Of the four great cities of the ancient world -- Rome, Constantinople, Alexandria and Antioch -- Antioch, situated in what is today southeastern Turkey near the Syrian border, may have been the most like our own. It was a prosperous, cosmopolitan, consumer metropolis devoted to trade and the arts, whose colorful, diverse citizenry -- Romans, Greeks, Jews, Syrians, Turks and Persians -- was drawn from every corner of the ancient world.

A trio of girls skipped around a new mosaic sculpture they helped to make outside Govans Elementary School and wondered aloud if it would last longer than the ancient society best known for the art form. "Mr. Spoon said it's going to last forever," Moravia Lindsay, 9, said. With the help of Bryant "Spoon" Smith, an artist-in-residence sent to the North Baltimore public school by the Baltimore Museum of Art, Moravia and others had built a shiny stone artwork taller than they are, using the same technique as in Antioch.
