FEW PEOPLE in Malaysia believe that Anwar Ibrahim committed the crime for which he was sentenced to nine years in prison. Few people outside the country believe it, either. More folks credit Mr. Anwar's accusation that Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad had him framed and ordered a sentence that, with additional ineligibility for office, takes Mr. Anwar out of politics for life. Unless, of course, the verdict is overturned, presumably after the quirky and autocratic Mr. Mahathir, 74 and in unchallenged power for 19 years, has departed.

He pulled on a Terps visor, to the crowd's delight. He rubbed noses with Gov. Martin O'Malley. And the Dalai Lama was met Tuesday with rounds of applause from a crowd of 15,000 at the University of Maryland, College Park's Comcast Center. "Sit down," the 78-year-old Tibetan spiritual leader said in a firm but friendly voice when he approached the podium and the crowd rose to its feet. "No formality! We are [the] same. … The way we are born, the way we die: no formality. " Clad in red robes and his trademark spectacles, the Dalai Lama appeared at the university to give an address on peace, compassion and fellowship as part of the Anwar Sadat Lecture Series.

Regarding the question posed by your editorial "A legitimate target?" (Oct. 3), my answer is an emphatic "Yes!" In the current global war against terrorism, when an American citizen such as radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was living in Yemen before being killed by a C.I.A. drone, defects and turns traitor to his country while openly supporting our enemies in al-Qaida, he becomes in my opinion a legitimate target for the U.S. military - and more power to them.

ASADABAD, Afghanistan - Telephone and power lines haven't reached the villages clinging to the craggy mountainsides of Kunar province. Digital phones and computer chips are even further beyond the shepherds' reach. So when sophisticated bombs detonated by long-range cordless phones began blowing up under U.S. and Afghan military vehicles on mountain tracks, investigators knew they had to search elsewhere for the masterminds. Afghan officials immediately focused on nearby Pakistan and its military, whose Inter-Services Intelligence agency helped create the Taliban in the early 1990s and provided training and equipment to help the Muslim extremists win control over most of the country.

The new Michael J. Fox film "For Love or Money" asks th question: Which is more important? And it answers: Both of them. I like a movie that takes a stand.A true case of having the cake and eating the cake, the movie isn't so much a comedy as a not-so-bad moral dilemma that recalls some of the more cantankerous works of that most misanthropic of directors, the great Viennese-American cynic Billy Wilder.Specifically, it recalls Wilder's brilliant "The Apartment," in which a great man's gofer and his mistress, each beholden to him in smarmy ways, view each other from the compromised platform of their corrupted states, but fall in love anyway.

Walter Cronkite turns 90 years old today, and the renowned broadcaster has lost none of his lust for the news business.

After anchoring the CBS Evening News for nearly two decades, the man with the famous stentorian voice can now be heard introducing one of his successors, Katie Couric. Asked for his reaction when CBS News executives invited him to do the introduction, he replied without hesitation: "I would like to be doing the whole broadcast."
