Crouching to examine the contours of a gleaming Ferrari 360 Spider convertible Monday afternoon, 21-year-old Daniel Giron couldn't help but imagine himself as owner of the luxury car, seized by the U.S. government from Byron Keith Brown, a Maryland man convicted last year of wire fraud and money laundering. After admiring the car at a vehicle auction site in Elkridge, Giron whipped out his phone, leaned in close to the cherry-red exterior and snapped a couple of pictures of his face next to the Ferrari logo.

MAHMOUD DARWISH, 67 Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, whose prose gave voice to the Palestinian experience of exile, occupation and infighting, died Saturday. The predominant Palestinian poet, whose work has been translated into more than 20 languages and won international awards, died after undergoing open-heart surgery at a Houston hospital, said Nabil Abu Rdeneh, a spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Born to a large Muslim family in historical Palestine - now modern-day Israel - Mr. Darwish emerged as an eloquent describer of the Palestinian struggle for independence while also criticizing both the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian leadership.

LAS VEGAS -- In Vegas, anyone can rent a basic compact car ($17.96 a day, plus taxes, at Thrifty), but here in the capital of flash and glitz, something a little sportier might be in order. On Swenson Avenue, not far from McCarran International Airport, you can find RAV (Rent-a-Vette), which specializes in exotic automobiles. A Lamborghini Gallardo or a Ferrari 360 Spider will set you back $1,495 a day. A Bentley Continental GT goes for $995 and a Corvette convertible (very popular) for $295.

To the highway patrols that monitor Northern Virginia's roads, I have a confession to make. Recently I test-drove a Ferrari 360 Modena in Dulles, Va., for a story about exotic cars and for a brief moment, I was going very fast. Rocketlike, actually. I can't say exactly how fast, because I was too busy watching the horizon come at me rapidly to gaze at the speedometer. And I did it for the simplest reason of all: I was driving a Ferrari. Hamid Adeli, president of the exotic cars company that rents the car, suggested we take it for a spin on the closest thing to a closed track-- a scarcely traveled secondary road.
