SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- Pity the poor Costa Rican postman. Sure, he doesn't have to deal with sleet or snow. But consider what passes for an address here: From the Tibas cemetery, 200 meters south, 300 meters west, cross the train tracks, white two-story house. That's actually an easy one. Making his rounds on the outskirts of this capital city one recent morning, carrier Roberto Montero Reyes pulled from his canvas sack envelopes whose addresses read like treasure-hunt clues or lines of haiku.

OSCAR ARELA flew to Costa Rica and all he had to show for it was a sexually provocative T-shirt - that got him and his girlfriend kicked off their plane. The incident took place Saturday at Miami International Airport. Mr. Arela and his girlfriend had taken seats on American Airlines Fight 952 (Miami was the connecting stop on their trip from Costa Rica to New York) when he was approached by a flight attendant. She asked him to change his T-shirt or turn it inside out. The shirt featured an image of a couple who, according to the airline, appeared to be engaged in a sexual act. One of the woman's breasts was exposed.

EVER SINCE the Duvalier dictatorship was overthrown in 1986, the island nation of Haiti has been plagued by turmoil. Even by such a standard, the coup that overthrew President Jean Bertrand Aristide Monday was anything but routine: It ousted Haiti's first democratically elected president.The Bush administration's firm stand against the junta -- including the cutoff of desperately needed humanitarian assistance -- was a tough but necessary first step. It is terrible that humanitarian aid is to be denied the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.

"Celebrity: The state or condition of being celebrated; fame; renown." "Notoriety: The quality or condition of being notorious; the state of being generally or publicly known - commonly used in an unfavorable sense." - Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary I define the words because, apparently, some of us don't understand the difference. By which I mean the National Broadcasting Company, which recently sought to hire former Illinois Gov. Milorad "Rod" Blagojevich to appear on its "reality" game show I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!

The countries of Latin America and the whole of the Third World possess an unexplored source of wealth: demilitarization.As a citizen of Costa Rica, which disbanded its army in 1948, I can offer tangible proof of the benefits and dividends offered by the peace that our country has enjoyed in the decades since that decision.Elimination of the army alone, and amending existing rules that in one way or another confer political agenda-making power on the military, will not solve all the problems related to the institutionization of democracy and the construction of a more just society.
