"Limousine, huh?"Leslie Vass shakes his head in wonder. There was no limousine for him, no cigar and no cold beer and no adoring fiancee waiting when he left the House of Correction after 10 years for a crime he never committed.Kirk Bloodsworth is different. He walked out of prison Monday with television cameras awaiting him, and his loved ones standing nearby, and Bloodsworth stood before a microphone and gave a moving little speech before ducking into a luxury limousine provided by a radio station and everybody roared off to a welcome-home party.

ATLANTA - Jurors in the Ray Lewis murder trial heard yesterday about the football player's evasive interview with police, in which he denied knowing anything about the killing of two men hours earlier and confided, "I was just with the wrong people." Prosecutors say the encounter, including Lewis' refusal to name fellow passengers in the limousine he had rented, proves Lewis was covering up a crime. Defense lawyers had tried repeatedly to keep Lewis' interview out of the trial. The remark that seemed to cast aspersions on Lewis' co-defendants was immediately challenged by their attorneys.

CONDOMS AND limousines. Limos and condoms. It seems an odd combination for discussion. But these two things stand as symbols -- evidence, really -- of the helplessness and ambivalence of parents of teen-agers. Condoms and limousines represent our desire to protect our children from harm, but also our inability to prevent them from engaging in harmful behavior. Limos and condoms are props in the twilight zone of parenting: between caution and control; between hope and reality. We rent limos to carry our kids to dances because we are afraid they will drink, and if they do, at least they won't be driving.

ATLANTA - A woman who was with Ray Lewis on the night two men were stabbed to death in a street brawl testified yesterday that she saw the Ravens linebacker shoving a man during the fight but said he appeared to be protecting a friend. Evelyn Sparks, a 24-year-old physical therapy student from Chicago, proved a mixed bag for prosecutors. She bolstered the defense when she described Lewis co-defendant Joseph Sweeting being attacked by two men and then Lewis pushing one of the attackers away.

The Arab princess arrived with so much luggage -- 250 pieces of it -- that a U-Haul had to be rented to cart it away. When the football players were too big to fit into their hired limousine, a second six-person stretch was dispatched to carry them all in comfort. Waiting on the tarmac or curbside for these celebrity clients -- and attending to their unique requests -- are guys such as Gary Day, Eugene M. Smith and Clark Jones, one-time salesmen and department store managers who now earn their living in front seats of limousines crisscrossing Baltimore.

The Atlanta lawyer representing Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis made an unannounced visit to Baltimore yesterday and inspected the stretch limousine that carried Lewis to a Super Bowl party and then away from the scene of a stabbing that left two men dead. After examining the 40-foot vehicle, the lawyer, Edward T. M. Garland, said he found evidence in the black limo but declined to describe it, and he again proclaimed his client's innocence. "He is 100 percent, absolutely innocent," Garland said in an impromptu news conference last night.
