Dumbarton Middle School pupils got a lesson on ethnic genocide from a Tutsi survivor yesterday. About 30 astonished members of the school's World Vision Club listened as Rwandan Augustin Ahimana recounted the slaughter of his family -- his mother, sister and brother -- at the hands of Hutu tribesmen. "The hurt in my heart was so big after the tragedy and it felt so sad, that I felt I had to do something," said Ahimana, who was living in Zaire at the time his family was attacked.

Caramelo (Knopf, 448 pages, $24) is a sprawling, raucous affair that weaves together several generations of la familia Reyes. This is Sandra Cisneros' first novel since 1985's The House on Mango Street. That book, told from a young Mexican-American girl's viewpoint, was elegant and simple.

For years, old Halloween candy containers, cards and decorations were the wallflowers of holiday collectibles.That tacky orange and black just didn't go over; neither did those goofy pumpkins and cackling witches.Collectors snapped up antique Valentines, with their elegant rose and lace motifs, or old Christmas decorations, with shining tinsel and smiling St. Nicks.Even Labor Day postcards stirred more interest than Halloween cards, because of their scarcity.But, in recent years, prices for old Halloween souvenirs have soared higher than the Wicked Witch on her broomstick; prices are up 30 percent this year, and Halloween is now the holiday, collectors say."

He was expected soon to succeed his 72-year-old father, Herbert H. Haft, as chairman and chief executive of the Dart Group.

WASHINGTON - President Bush, in a brief private ceremony yesterday in the Oval Office, signed into law legislation allowing the creation of a National Museum of African-American History and Culture as part of the Smithsonian Institution. The signing caps a turbulent, nearly century-long quest for such a museum and represents a significant victory for the legislators, business and civic leaders, artists and veterans who have championed the project over several generations. Despite a lack of fanfare and no public statement from Bush, backers of the museum said the atmosphere surrounding the event was heavy with emotion and historic significance.

Have we become so media-critical and deconstructionist that there's no place for a little Rudolph joy in our post-postmodern hearts? That's what I was thinking as I sat down with Bravo's The Christmas Special Christmas Special, a one-hour look at the history of Christmas television shows. The special, hosted by Carson Kressley (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy)
