On their first day of school, the 28 students at Harford Friends School never saw a desk, textbook, or whiteboard. Instead, the middle school children went to an outdoor learning center, where they spent the day rock climbing, problem-solving, and team building. "We bring our students here to give them a safe environment for taking healthy risks," said Jonathan Huxtable, Harford Friends head of school. "It's neat to watch the eighth-graders step up and take the lead." Since the school's inception four years ago, students have been going to the Genesee Valley Outdoor Learning Center in Parkton on the first day of school.

Now that "The Cosby Show" has taped its final episode, let it be said the show was indeed a good thing, very positive, inspiring, constructive and wholesome ... but ... really, wouldn't a tiny, just barely perceptible streak of perversity, have made it more interesting?Advertising Age asked its readers for piquant themes for "The Cosby Show" and they pounded out:* Mike Tyson, William Kennedy Smith and Clarence Thomas, guest-starring as themselves, gang up on Rudy on the playground during recess and beat her up.* Dr. Huxtable buys a Harley, joins the Hell's Angels, becomes known as "Dr. Death" and terrorizes Doogie Howser.

Benjamin Huxtable got his first plastic baseball bat at 6 months, and by this spring he was showing a knack for the sport in the T-ball games sponsored by a local rec council. On Father's Day, the 4-year-old was just where he wanted to be: at a baseball diamond in Baltimore County, sticking close by as his dad warmed up for an adult amateur baseball league game. That's when a ball flew over the father's head and struck the boy in the chest. "Daddy!" Benjamin yelled, his eyes wide as he ran toward his father.

Most important, the characters were appealing even if achingly peculiar.

"The Unreal America: Architecture and Illusion," by Ada Louise Huxtable. The New Press. 208 pages. $30.Architecture sums up the civilization it enshrines, the Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Ada Louise Huxtable argues in her latest book. "We are what we build," she says. "Stone and steel do not lie."But what happens to architecture when the civilization in question increasingly wants to escape reality and be surrounded by artificial environments, such as theme parks and fantasy retail settings that have little connection to the rest of the world?

Phylicia Rashad and Clair Huxtable appear to be inextricably entwined: Just as no one remembers Clair, the super-woman of "The Cosby Show," without thinking of the actress who played her, few think of Ms. Rashad without flashing on Clair -- the perfect wife and mother of five who also practiced law and dressed to the nines. The nines by upper-middle-class standards, of course.Now, a year after Bill Cosby retired his eight-year TV hit, Ms. Rashad has turned up on Broadway as sassy, sexy Sweet Anita, who "turns Jelly to jam" in the musical "Jelly's Last Jam."

AN ERA, of sorts, ends tomorrow night as Denise announces she's pregnant, Theo graduates from New York University, and the Huxtables fade into television history. Still, because of the way it changed America, "The Cosby Show" will not be soon forgotten.Simply in terms of numbers, "The Cosby Show" deserves a place in TV annals. For four of its eight seasons, the show was rated No. 1 -- placing it with "Gunsmoke" and "All in the Family" as one of the most popular shows of all time. In the ratings, it swept every demographic, age and racial group, and it appealed to audiences in foreign locales as unlikely as South Africa.
