Glendon William Bell Jr. loved fixing old cars and talking with mechanics far more than playing sports or seeking mischief. If that made the Mount Airy boy an atypical 12-year-old, family members said, it only made him more endearing to his father and uncles, all mechanics. His family was hardly surprised that Glendon would become distracted from shoveling snow and start fiddling with the 1992 Ford Festiva that was his latest reclamation project. "He didn't want anything new because the thing for him was to get it up and running," said Glendon's brother-in-law Steven Gosnell of Mount Airy.

Washington. -- "My friends,'' exulted Ron Brown, then Democratic Party chairman (now secretary of commerce), to an American Bar Association forum in November 1992, ''I'm here to tell you that the lawyers won!'' That was true, given the Democrats' enthusiasm for the regulatory state and their aversion -- rewarded by campaign contributions from trial lawyers -- for reforms such as the ''loser pays'' rule to inhibit litigiousness.So, are lawyers happy? Not exactly. Nearly a quarter of them say they would choose a different profession were they starting over.

In 1991, Mary Ann Glendon, the Learned Hand Professor of Jurisprudence at Harvard Law School, wrote a discerning book, Rights Talk: The Impoverishment of Political Discourse (The Free Press, 218 pages, $22.95) in which she noted that contemporary American discourse over such issues as property, sexual activity, abortion, social welfare and the like was deteriorating into sound bites, slogans and the strident language of "my rights." In this process our opinions were becoming hyperpolarized, exaggeratedly absolute, coarsely self-centered and remarkably silent about personal, civic and collective responsibilities.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- They almost didn't make it out of the first round when some kindly officiating, two missed free throws and Mike Miller's last-second basket that had to be reviewed on tape for authenticity enabled Florida to escape from Butler in overtime. Ten days later, the Gators clinched their reservations for the NCAA's Final Four. Before 30,388 at the Carrier Dome yesterday, full-throttle Florida used its depth to claim another victim, this time against a seasoned Oklahoma State club that couldn't emerge from a deep deficit and lost the Eastern Regional final, 77-65.
