LOURDES, France - As Pope John Paul II visited here yesterday, he counted himself as one of the thousands of ailing Roman Catholics who come to this pilgrimage town in the Pyrenees foothills every year to pray to a shrine dedicated to the Virgin Mary, but the Vatican denied that he came seeking a cure. "I am here with you, dear brothers and sisters," the pope said in a message that was read for him by Cardinal Roger Etchegaray of France. "With you I share a time of life marked by physical suffering."

A 19-year-old East Baltimore man was convicted yesterday of speeding from a shooting scene and causing a car crash that left a 2-year-old girl with severe brain damage. During the trial in city Circuit Court, jurors told the judge that glaring courtroom spectators made them fearful for their safety. They deliberated about four hours before convicting Terrell Johnson of the 500 block of Milton Ave. of assault and hit-and-run charges stemming from the June 15 car crash. But the jury acquitted Johnson on charges of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and handgun violations in connection with the shooting.

Kathryn Barry Truax, an elementary school teacher recalled for her classroom presence, died of leukemia Dec. 2 at her Ruxton home. She was 30. Born in Baltimore and raised in Ruxton, she was a 2000 graduate of the Bryn Mawr School, where she played basketball and lacrosse. "Her smile greeted everyone, be it a friend or an acquaintance. She always had a kind word, an infectious laugh and a great sense of humor," said Gita Deane, who had taught her and is now on the Goucher College faculty.

Purnell Robinson and Latoya Herrington couldn't wait to get married in front of 250 family members and friends last month and watch their 2-year-old daughter, Lourdes, sashay down the aisle as a flower girl. But the parents did not exchange vows that summer Saturday. Instead, they spent hours beside Lourdes' hospital bed, holding her hands and passing a mirror in front of her eyes, hoping she might snap from a distant stare and recognize them. For Herrington and Robinson, the days have become one long exhausting vigil since their daughter was struck by a car after a shooting two months ago and became an innocent victim of Baltimore's street violence.

MIAMI -- The Soviet Union knew U.S. battle plans in the Persian Gulf war in 1991, including the surprise "left hook" into Iraq, through an electronic spy network anchored in Cuba, a Russian defector says.Moscow did not leak the plans to Baghdad at the time, the defector said. But improved Russian-Iraqi relations these days may lead Moscow to be more friendly to President Saddam Hussein if U.S. troops plan to attack Iraq again.Moscow's Lourdes spy center in Cuba is far bigger than publicly known, the defector added, a "monster" that collates data intercepted by Russian spy satellites, ships and planes in the entire Atlantic region.

Another look at Madonna's diary:Oct. 14: The Big Day! Went into labor at 3: 30 this morning, which is when I reached over, gently shook Carlos and said: "Hey, wake the #$%& up! We gotta get to the #$%&* hospital!"Carlos was to be my "coach." But he was a little unclear on the concept, arriving in the birthing room with a whistle, clipboard and cassette player blaring the Notre Dame fight song. Sigh. This is what happens when your baby's father is a 30-year-old personal trainer you picked up in Central Park while jogging.

The Spanish have been masters of sly black comedy, and El Crimen Ferpecto (or The Ferpect Crime) is a splendid example. It has to do with the comeuppance of a Madrid department store salesman (Guillermo Toledo) who aspires to an elegant lifestyle commensurate with his appearance and manner. When a floor manager drops dead, Toledo's Rafael is confident he will replace him. Meanwhile, Rafael has it pretty good. Not only is he head of the women's clothing and accessories department, but after hours he has his way with his beautiful and eager staffers.

A Naval Academy senior found guilty of inappropriate contact with at least three women, including a former freshman who had accused him of rape, has been expelled from the military college. Robert A. Curcio, 24, whose case drew unflattering attention to the academy's handling of reports of sexual misconduct, will likely be required to pay the Navy about $120,000 or serve three years as an enlisted sailor as reimbursement for his taxpayer-funded tuition. His mother, Lourdes Curcio, said in an interview that her son returned to his hometown of Antioch, Calif.
