New York. -- When students at the city university jammed streets around city hall to vent indignation about budget cuts that portend tuition increases, they carried signs denouncing Mayor Giuliani, but misspelling his name, as well as ''tiution'' and ''priorty.'' Either more money is needed for higher education, or less money should be entrusted to the people responsible for that university. Whichever, the turmoil was just one manifestation of resistance to budgets that Mr. Giuliani calls ''reality therapy.

An action plan to revitalize Coppin State University, a historically black institution with the lowest graduation rate in Maryland, is before the state university system's Board of Regents, which is expected to vote on the proposal Friday.

The news that the U.S. had killed Osama bin Laden arrived Sunday night with bracing clarity — the kind rarely seen since 9/11 itself. It's been almost 10 years since terrorists killed nearly 3,000 Americans on a single day, a shocking event that instantly seemed to divide life into before and after. Pearl Harbor, the JFK assassination, Antietam — no historical antecedent seemed too overstated. And yet, somehow, unless you lost someone to the terrorist attacks or the subsequent wars fought in its name, 9/11 eventually lost its hold on the ever-fleeting American attention span.
