Brazilian voters have had enough excitement for one decade. They just elected Fernando Henrique Cardoso president on the strength of the currency reform he drafted while finance minister, which since July 1 has stopped lunatic inflation dead.Monday's was the second election in a row in which Brazilians chose a free market economic reformer over the siren songs of a charismatic socialist named Lula. The first president, chosen in 1989, proved a fraud and a thief. But Mr. Cardoso, a 63-year-old professor of sociology who was exiled as a dangerous leftist by the military dictatorship of the 1960s, looks like the real thing.

Washington... There was a shimmering, miraculous quality to that day in Jerusalem, 24 years ago, when the walls dividing the city came crashing down. But the seeds for two decades of violence were planted then. It was victory for some, but defeat for others.We are now in the middle of a post-Cold War, post-Gulf War diplomatic initiative for Middle East peace pursued by Secretary of State James A. Baker. Will the Arabs and Israelis sit down together? Will they exchange land for peace? Will they begin to trust one another and stop the hatred and wars?

THE REAL miracle of television is C-Span. I lie abed at a roadside inn in Grantville, Pa., and C-Span takes me back to youth. Or whatever that fizzy condition was back there in the mists of faraway 1962.It is the spectacle of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy debating one Mitt Romney in Boston that does the trick, but there would be nospectacle here by the Pennsylvania high road if it were not for C-Span.Mightier television powers, treating this spectacle as a parochial Massachusetts exercise, decline to interrupt their nightly flow of electronic slush by showing it.Only C-Span spreads it out across the darkening continent.

DALLAS -- No one will ever confuse Blast coach Kenny Cooper with a magician.But by his admission, the Blast's unlikely run at a playoff spot is being done with "flash and mirrors."Even the team's media release before Friday's game said, "it would take a bizarre chain of events for the Blast to qualify for postseason play."The Blast battled back from a 4-1 opening-period deficit to beat the Dallas Sidekicks, 8-7, and the St. Louis Storm ripped the Wichita Wings, 8-5, leaving Cooper's team in a better position to reach the playoffs.

It was a big week, what with Stanford beating USC in football, of all things, and with a second-string quarterback starting his first college game, and on the same day political riots in Bern complete with rock throwing and tear gas - the Swiss! Acting up in the streets! - and on the very same October day it was 85 degrees and muggy in Minnesota. One jolt to our belief system after another. And then Cosmopolitan magazine offered to show us how to achieve the "blended orgasm" - I had no idea there was one!

MOUNT CARMEL -- In the kitchen of the restaurant at Fourth and Maple, tucked away near the refrigerator where his cigars are kept, is the portable cooler where Albert Visintainer keeps his sacred relic.It's not that he's hiding it.Lord, no. At the drop of a hat he'll get out the small brown finger bone taken from the deceased nun's left hand, kiss the stone reliquary encasing it and tell its story to anyone interested. The guys in the bar think he's crazy.But he'll also, if asked, take the relic, protective cooler and all, to any of the three local hospitals to comfort the sick and urge prayers in the blessed woman's name.
