Hilary Phelps was approaching the finish line of her first Ironman triathlon. Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" was playing. She was wrung out from more than 14 hours of swimming, cycling and now running, certain that there wasn't a single drop of liquid left inside her. Then she saw her family, and the tears started flowing as she ran into their arms - mom Debbie, sister Whitney and brother Michael. "I've never done anything this impressive," she remembers Michael saying. "Are you kidding me?"

The old adage says that when you put someone's hand in the fire, it will be an experience to learn from and never repeat. But there are some who find the fire to be very alluring, and they repeatedly come back for more, despite the consequences. Enter Felicia "Snoop" Pearson ("City drug raids net 63; 'Wire' actress arrested," March 11). Opportunities were given her to change her life, to place her troubled past in the rearview mirror. But that fire, that magnet that draws some back to the gutter dealer's life, is sometimes too much to resist.

Vaudeville never died - it just went over the rainbow, where it became immortal. That's the bracing comic message of "The 70th Anniversary Edition of The Wizard of Oz." This tender yet also tingling high-definition restoration provides a Munchkin City, an Emerald City and Wicked Witch's castle that announce themselves as brilliantly colored stage sets - make that soundstage sets. Then they burst into unruly life with the singing and dancing of Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley Jr., Margaret Hamilton, and, of course, the Munchkins - who on a flight of mass inspiration turn wildly different schticks into compelling characters and cohesive, overwhelming magic.

Each time Brady Smith places his left hand on the ground, the Boston College defensive end glances at the white tape on his right hand, where the initials VB and the number 25 are drawn in bold, black magic marker. "I still consider Van Brooks to be one of my teammates, so every time I look down and see it, I want to push that much harder," says Smith, whose 20th-ranked Eagles host No. 21 Maryland today in a key Atlantic Coast Conference football game at Alumni Stadium. "I want to show Van that ... every time I'm on the field, I'm pushing harder, playing harder because of him," says Smith, a 6-foot-2, 285-pound redshirt freshman who starts on the left side.

Symptoms of failure are becoming harder to deny in Afghanistan. The Taliban is resurgent in the south, probably in part because of support from within Pakistan. Hundreds of civilians have died in fighting this year, including some killed in NATO bombing raids. President Hamid Karzai has told two governors to re-arm their private militias, which is a big step backward but indicative of the weakness of the Afghan police. Drought is once again afflicting the north, pushing farmers either to move or to concentrate on the one crop that doesn't need much irrigation - the opium poppy.

It was New Year's Day 1998, a day for new beginnings, when Mike Hasselbeck and his brother and his uncle all got on the same page while watching the Rose Bowl, the granddaddy of them all. Hasselbeck and his posse took their thinking outside the box by noticing how often Keith Jackson and Bob Griese, the ABC announcers, invoked well-known expressions during the telecast. Soon enough, Hasselbeck started compiling a list of the cliches. It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that he could go for the gold, hit pay dirt and touch 'em all by creating a Web site of all the hoary phrases and expressions that sizzle through the sports consciousness like a hot knife through butter.

As if anyone needed more proof that life is unfair: It is becoming increasingly clear that depression not only makes you feel miserable, but can also damage your heart. On top of that, a heart attack or other cardiovascular ailments can trigger depression. Together, the conditions can significantly increase your chances of dying. Chronic depression doubles the probability of having a first heart attack or stroke. "That's about the same risk as smoking," says Dr. Daniel Ford, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and an expert on mental health and heart disease.

Everybody talks in politics about cooperation across the partisan divide, of cooperating for the greater good. All very nice - even smart - and yet almost nobody does it. So photographs in the newspaper last week featuring Republican Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest and Democrat Rep. Elijah E. Cummings on a happy-talk tour of Maryland's Eastern Shore had a certain shock value. One of the shots caught the Republican helping the Democrat into a pair of protective booties. They were about to start wading through manure on a Kent County dairy farm owned by Howard McHenry.

I'm not picking Duke or Connecticut to win the national championship. I'm not even picking them to get to the Final Four. Big whoop, right? There are probably millions of brackets out there that don't have the two favorites in the Final Four. Millions of other pickers are playing it safe. This just doesn't seem to be the year to play it safe, though. Getting the Blue Devils and Huskies to Indianapolis was very likely a chore, whether one drew up his or her brackets outside-in or inside-out.

What goes around comes around. Investors facing a disappointing first quarter can take heart that within the overall stock market some of last year's dogs became darlings, relatively speaking, in the new year. By the same token, several of last year's leaders are among this year's laggards. Rotation among sectors of the stock market, and among individual stocks, is a perennial theme in investing. Beware that your broker doesn't use the "rotation" pitch simply to churn your account. Stocks are weak this year across the board, after a strong rally last year.
