Imagine all the people . . . wearing John Lennon's eyeglasses.Although people have emulated the late singer's style for close to three decades by wearing round, wire-rimmed glasses, until this month none of those frames had the cachet of his signature on the inside of the right temple.Now New Jersey-based Eagle Eyewear is launching the first four models in the John Lennon collection of eye- and sunglasses for men, women and teen-agers. Priced at $70 to $80 in metal or plastic and expected in local stores by the end of this month or early March, the styles are named after popular Lennon songs or albums -- "Revolution," "Imagine," "The Walrus" and "Double Fantasy."

THE BEST ARGUMENT in favor of trying to hold elections in Iraq next month may have come from the streets of Kiev. The Ukrainian vote was terribly flawed -- brazenly unfair, in fact -- yet it was the very mechanism of the election that gave the Orange revolutionaries something concrete to protest. There was a clear-cut process, and it didn't work, and that spurred the Ukrainian opposition to turn out to seek specific redress. The election results provided a forum for their dissent, and that dissent, moreover, was within the larger system -- and was itself legal.

They had talked many times before, each discussion a little grimmer than the one before. Now, both knew all hope was lost to the unrelenting march of AIDS. Dr. Lisa Smirnow reached into a drawer and pulled out a plastic magic wand and announced, "Now, I'm going to sprinkle fairy dust on you." And she did. "Can you imagine saying that to a homosexual man?" asked Margaret Blandin-Clark, a friend of 14 years and director of behavioral medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

After 35 years and who knows how many thousands of photographs of her face, you'd think one more picture of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis would evoke nothing more than the usual response: fascination and curiosity about the woman now known the world over as Jackie O.But something about this photograph was different. Different and disturbing.Certainly it's not the way she looks. In fact, at 64 she looks remarkably like she did at 34. And 44. And 54. The hair is still dark, the wide-set eyes steady, the jaw firm.

LOS ANGELES -- If war breaks out next week in the Persian Gulf, all prime-time entertainment programs might be pulled from the air for up to a week for round-the-clock news programming. That was the word yesterday from Robert Iger, president of ABC Entertainment.Mr. Iger said it is easier to go with all-news in such a situation than trying to blend entertainment and news. "What do you put in the middle of two hours of coverage of the bombing of Baghdad?" he said. "Can you go right to Roseanne after that?

Imagine, if you can, Baltimore with no electricity, no running water, no sewage disposal, no telephones or gasoline; the picture resembles an especially awful circle of hell. If you can imagine the thouands of ways residents of modern cities depend on basic infrastructures, perhaps you have some idea of the crisis confronting the cities of Iraq. Televised pictures of Kurdish refugees have justifiably stirred outrage and sympathy. But, so far at least, the West has not seen graphic evidence of the desperation of 14 million other Iraqis -- the other victims caught between Saddam Hussein's aggression and the allied coalition's determination to turn it back.

NEW YORK -- Twelve years of "isolation and neglect" of American cities will end if the nation puts Bill Clinton in the White House, Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke told assembled Democratic Party leaders and a national television audience here last night.Today, he said, American cities like Baltimore are places of "great pain," burdened by crime, by crumbling highways and water systems, and by poorly trained workers.The Bush administration did nothing in response, the mayor said. Instead, it punched holes in the ship of state and "started throwing people overboard."

Imagine maneuvering a vehicle through an obstacle course with a gate, a series of blocks and four structures topped with white barbell-shaped targets -- under water. Now imagine building a machine that can run the course by itself without remote controls or human assistance. Twelve teams of high school and college students have accomplished that and are competing in the fourth annual International Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Competition, which starts tomorrow at the Naval Academy. In the contest, which will take place in murky College Creek behind Hubbard Hall, students will pit their independently intelligent contraptions against each other for $20,000 in prize money and "serious bragging rights."

SINCE their conception, cars have been a thorn in the side of the average human being. People are run down by them, choke on their fumes, and become generally annoyed.But on whose shoulders does this blame really fall? The cars themselves are not the cause, nor even the people who produce them. The real responsibility belongs to the drivers.Imagine how much more pleasant the ride into work would be every day if everyone used turn signals when they were turning or changing lanes and then turned them off when they were finished.
