The doorbell rang the other day, and I answered it. (This has to be one of the most compelling openings ever written.) A group of my son's friends were at the door, so I let them in. (The excitement builds.) Shortly thereafter, the volume control on our speaking voices boosted several decibels, and enthusiasm reverberated throughout our house. Nothing out of the ordinary was happening, and yet everything happening was out of the ordinary. The air crackled with an irrepressible static that would present a serious challenge to even the dryer sheet industry.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- This is the city I grew up in. And this was the scene at lunchtime last Monday at my old grammar school, P.S. 11, now rebuilt after a fire and named the Martin Luther King School: The statue of Peter Stuyvesant, which I and other ''patrol boys'' were once delegated to guard against graffiti, has been moved from the middle of the concrete yard in front of the school to a corner. (Stuyvesant, you may remember, was a Dutchman with a peg leg, the colonial governor of New Amsterdam, who cut a permanent deal in 1658 with resident Indians to take over this land on the west side of the Hudson River.

When Thurgood Marshall was special counsel for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, people would wait in lines outside the Supreme Court for a chance to hear him argue that the government should protect the constitutional rights of black citizens. In death, thousands lined up at the Supreme Court on Wednesday to pay their last respects to this monument in American history."How could we turn anyone away?" said a weary guard, who permitted mourners well into the night to pass by the casket in the court's Great Hall.

HUNTINGTON, Ind. - Dan Johns, executive director of the Dan Quayle museum, leaned closer to a display case to check a fact that had eluded him. "Let's see, now," he said, a furrow suddenly creasing his forehead, his voice growing solemn. "Did the potato thing come first, and then it was Murphy Brown, or was it Murphy Brown, and then the potato thing? I know they were very close. Ah, yes. Here it is. Murphy Brown first, then potato." Or p-o-t-a-t-o-e, as Quayle once spelled it in the presence of a group of disbelieving grammar school students.

Of all the classes offered by the Freedom Area Recreation Council this winter, second-grader Daniel Neeley chose French."He likes things that are unusual, something where he stands out a little bit," said his mother, Linda Neeley. "Kids like to know something other kids don't know."Most children in Carroll elementary schools don't know a foreign language, because no schools offer it as part of the curriculum. The earliest foreign language classes are in eighth grade, and even then, Spanish is the only one.The void has been filled only now and then, when parent groups or recreation councils offer language classes, said Dorothy Mangle, director of elementary education.
