BAGHDAD, Iraq - The white-haired barber, elegant and still on the job, loses himself in long tales about his stint as hairdresser for Faisal II, Iraq's last king, nearly 60 years ago. Across the street, the owner of a beverage shop points to his father's solemn portrait on the wall. With obvious pride, the owner says his family has been selling grape juice on this spot since 1908. A few doors down, men of all ages sip hot tea from thimble-size glasses and smoke elaborate water pipes at the Cafe of Hassan, reported to be a 200-year-old meeting spot.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A senior Iraqi official said yesterday that Iraq was prepared to do more to aid United Nations arms experts but provided few specifics and said his country no longer has weapons of mass destruction. "We have cooperated fully," Gen. Amir Rashid said. "We are ready to cooperate more." Rashid, Iraq's former oil minister, held to a familiar line that "Iraq has been free of any mass destruction weapons since the end of 1991, and all the inspections have proven this fact." He also accused the United States and Britain of interfering with the inspections.

I don't trust white people, myself included, to make sensitive judgments about the consciousness of being black. Nor do I trust myself to judge books by people I've known and been fond of - or, at least, I don't expect others to trust my judgment in such cases. Thus, there are two reasons I should not write here about The Fall of Rome, a novel by Martha Southgate (Scribner, 223 pages, $23). But having read Southgate's book, I am so impressed that I shall fly in the face of those cautions.

Herbert O. Reid Sr., a prominent civil rights lawyer and a longtime adviser to former mayor Marion S. Barry Jr., died of prostate cancer Friday at his home in Washington. He was 75. Mr. Reid, who served on the faculty of the Howard University School of Law for 41 years, also taught many of today's black leaders, including the governor of Virginia, L. Douglas Wilder, and the current mayor of Washington, Sharon Pratt Dixon. Mr. Reid was a participant in several legal cases that led to major Supreme Court desegregation rulings, including Brown vs. Board of Education in 1954, which ended the practice of segregation in public school systems.

RAMALLAH, West Bank - Palestinians are seeking $40 billion from the international community to compensate refugees and help them build a state, a top official said last night. Disclosure of the sum, huge even in comparison with recent Israeli aid requests, puts the issue of money squarely on the bargaining table at next week's three-way Camp David summit along with the wrenching political issues of Jerusalem, territory and a right of return for Palestinian refugees. Mohammad Rashid, economic adviser to Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, said the largest portion of the aid would go to compensate refugees uprooted from their homes in 1948 and after, hundreds of thousands of whom live in crowded refugee camps throughout the region.

A life sentence begins with Rashid's name. I can't walk away from the first time I looked into his 15-year-old eyes, the eyes of someone close to my age, and knew he was sentenced to die in prison. When I met Rashid, his voice still carried the cracks and high notes that signaled adolescence, and his smooth face had never felt a razor. The same signs that belied my youth belied his. We were at the Southampton Receiving Center in Virginia, waiting on a bus to take us to prison. No fewer than a dozen of us were Rashid's age, all with peers at home waiting on driver's licenses, graduations and proms - while we waited for the morning that would lead us to a prison cell.

COLLEGE PARK -- The Mount St. Mary's women's basketball team had no answers for Crystal Langhorne. Then again, few opponents have.

DONALD RUMSFELD, it turns out, was right. In his now famous memo, which came to light a week ago, he pointed out to his Defense Department aides that the war on terrorism wasn't going as well as it might be. This had not been the line of the Bush administration, which at the time was busily trying to sell the idea that conditions in Iraq were just getting better and better, despite what you might read in the papers or see on television. The month-long Muslim holiday of Ramadan, which began Sunday with a rocket attack on the Al Rashid Hotel in Baghdad, is putting a damper on upbeat spin.

Boston -- WILLIAM CASEY, President Reagan's director of central intelligence, made a secret trip to Baghdad in March 1982. After his visit the United States removed Saddam Hussein's Iraq from the list of countries supporting terrorism -- a decision that allowed Iraq to acquire sensitive U.S. technology.But the Reagan administration knew that Iraq was in fact still sponsoring terrorism, paying for it, supplying the tools of murder. One terrorist organization, operating as an instrument of Iraqi military intelligence, carried out bomb attacks on American, Israeli and Jewish targets around the world.

PHILADELPHIA - Just as all signs point to Osama bin Laden as the mastermind behind the attack on our country, all signs point to Pakistan as the key to bringing him down. Pakistan is the key supporter of the Taliban, the primitive Muslim extremists who rule over remote Afghanistan. The Taliban shelter bin Laden, a wealthy Saudi businessman whose terror network aims to show the world that the United States is a spent power and to drive us out of the Middle East. Getting Pakistan to squeeze the Taliban into expelling bin Laden represents the best chance for our country to grab him without risky military action.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - The witness identification is nearly perfect. The suspect is paraded into the courtroom in an orange jumpsuit, and, after a few moments of examination, the man on the witness stand cries out, "That's him!" But there's one small twist - the suspect being positively identified as the killer is not the man on trial for murder. The man on trial is John Allen Muhammad, 42, charged in the 13 sniper shootings that terrorized the Washington region last fall. The suspect identified as the killer is Lee Boyd Malvo, 18, who is awaiting trial for his role in the shootings.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Citing a change of heart and an abscessed tooth that swelled his right cheek to the size of a lemon, sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad rehired his lawyers yesterday - and vowed not to fire them again. "I want them to continue," Muhammad told Judge LeRoy F. Millette Jr. during a morning conference at the bench yesterday. He also said that he could barely speak because of the pain in his mouth and that he believes he will be best served by the lawyers who have defended him for almost a year.
