"His Holiness: John Paul II and the Hidden History of Our Time," by Carl Bernstein and Marco Politi, Doubleday, 582 pages, $27.50.Make no mistake, this is a work of journalism, not current history.The book is a vast expansion of a cover story Carl Bernstein wrote for Time magazine in 1992 suggesting that the Reagan administration and John Paul II had engaged in a "holy alliance" intended to destabilize the Communist government of Poland.When U.S. government documents are released, we will probably gain a better sense of how deeply the pope involved himself with Solidarity.

Women of my generation could do worse than to have Nora Ephron doing the voice-over narration of our lives. Our Sarah Jessica Parker, but in slimming black and sensible flats. Our "Sex and the City," but with coffee instead of Cosmopolitans. She has been there for us since our twenty-somethings, when Harry met Sally and we learned that friendship can morph into comfortable love, even for those, like us, who once blithely dismissed commitment. I was feeling bad about my neck, but it was Nora Ephron who said it out loud in a book by the same name.

COLLEGE PARK -- The latest threat to all that is good and noble in college athletics is a 21-year-old basketball player here named Duane Simpklns. He is being pilloried for parking tickets. He ran up $8,000 worth of these tickets over several semesters before University of Maryland officials finally caught him. I wish to this Duane Simpkins. From him, I could learn.Among other things, I wish to learn how he dodged school officials for "a couple of years." How was he able to keep registering for classes with all these unpaid tickets?

A story on the front page of yesterday's New York Times was startling: The Bush administration ignored urgent warnings from the military in 2003 that thousands of additional troops were needed in Iraq, and the article also described the White House as riven by disagreement over the conduct of the war. The problem with the story was that it should have appeared first in The Washington Post. The scoop in the Times - and a similar story in the New York Daily News - was based on a new book, State of Denial, by Bob Woodward, an assistant managing editor at The Post and famous as half of the duo that unraveled the Watergate scandal.

COLLEGE PARK - The two men onstage were old enough to be her grandfather, and neither possessed the Hollywood good looks of, say, a young Redford or Hoffman, but University of Maryland freshman Jennifer Gee listened raptly - and not just because there'll be a quiz Tuesday. "Woodward and Bernstein?" most of her friends in the dorm had asked when Gee told them where she was going. Law firm? Jewelry store? The names meant nothing. To Gee, a journalism major from Severna Park, they did. There's hardly a journalism class that doesn't mention the two young Washington Post reporters who, 30 years ago, started investigating the Watergate break-in and its cover-up by the Nixon administration.

With one magic eyebrow cocked in a posture of utterly civilized disbelief, Nora Ephron says, "Lancaster. Lancaster, Pennsylvania?"It's somewhat like Dorothy Parker, with the same facial expression, saying, "Pig's knuckles?"But yes, so an early draft of the script of "Sleepless in Seattle" read, a love story about a Seattle architect and a newspaper reporter in . . . Lancaster, Pennsylvania."I couldn't write a movie set in a city without a major-league team," Ephron said emphatically, as if she were explaining an immutable law of physics.

Sylvia Bernstein, 88, a native Washingtonian who championed civil rights and fought to desegregate the city in the 1950s, died of pancreatic cancer at her home there Sunday. The daughter of Russian immigrants, Mrs. Bernstein worked to desegregate area restaurants, an amusement park and public swimming pools and playgrounds. She advocated home rule for the District of Columbia, protested the Vietnam War and the development of nuclear weapons. Over the years, she and her husband, Albert, a union activist, made their former home in Silver Spring into a salon of sorts, where thinkers and activists met to debate.

It is amusing and ironic that pop singer Adam Levine should be talking about "the decay of Western civilization" (Celebrities, Dec. 4). He is himself an icon of what journalist Carl Bernstein once described as "the idiot culture. " For the first time in our history, the weird, the stupid and the coarse are becoming not just the norm but our cultural ideal. Thomas F. McDonough, Towson
