I wanted to add fresh herbs to a salad and so while stretching across our herb garden for some sprigs that were just beyond my reach, I fell face first into our oregano patch. Typically, I would have been annoyed. But instead, I was all smiles, no doubt because I had fallen into what the ancient Greeks knew as "happiness plants. " "Oregano" means "joy of the mountains" in Greek, and Greece's mountainsides are where oregano is native and where it's been used as a culinary and medicinal herb for centuries.

"Mighty Aphrodite" is Woody Allen's take on the great fate-haunted, destiny-tossed Greek dramas of yore, and he does manage to come up with something Sophocles never thought of: a tragedy with a happy ending.But what did Sophocles know?The movie is a return to the loopy, not terribly deep mode of parody out of which Allen first hacked his career with films like "Sleeper" (sci-fi), "Love and Death" (Russian novels) or even "Zelig" (documentary). That means, consequently, that it's still a further turn away from the powerful examinations of moral ambivalence that have consumed him over the past decade, as in "Crimes and Misdemeanors" or "Husbands and Wives."

Why winter? Why this prolonged period of Code Gray? Weren't our eyes made for color, our skin for warmth? Why this cold, dreary season when birds abandon us and gardens stop producing their fruits and flowers? Why this endless time of skyrocketing heating bills and bone-wearying shoveling? Why this sentence of home detention when, racked with cabin fever, we hunker down by the fire or get fuzzy-brained before the TV? What have we done to deserve this? Surely someone has offended the gods.

Years before war and famine tore through the villages around Mogadishu, leaving ugliness in their wake, the Somalian countryside was the birthplace of a dark-eyed baby girl with astoundingly high cheekbones and flawless, sun-blessed skin -- a thing of perfect and undeniable beauty. A half-century, several countries and many stages of life later, Iman -- Mogadishu's black Aphrodite -- continues to represent all things beautiful and beauty-related. As she nears 50 years of age, her face still is among the most famous of the big-name fashion models.

Shirley Basfield Dunlap is uttering blasphemy at Morgan State University. Quite a few, actually, in Douglas Parker's ''modern translation'' of the classic Greek comedy ''Lysistrata.'' And like Socrates, she's using it to influence young people. But let's hope she doesn't have to drink hemlock. The product of her sacrilege is simply too funny to be punished."Lysistrata," one of 11 surviving pieces by the prolific Greek poet Aristophanes, is the story of a plot by Athenian wives to halt the Peloponnesian War. Aristophanes, a fierce patriot, thought it folly that the Athenians and Spartans, Hellas' strongest city-states, were gouging each other in a war that lasted 27 years while their Persian enemies gathered to attack all Greeks.

Four years ago when President Bush declared major combat over in Iraq, the first troops began to come home to an insidiously invisible war: the psychological trauma caused by their combat experience. In a study of soldiers returning home after that first year of war, one in eight was found to have post-traumatic stress disorder or some other mental disorder, according to a Walter Reed Army Institute of Research study reported last year in The Journal of the American Medical Association.
