In the back yard of his Walkersville home, Ray Matlock sits in a gazebo as two Siamese cats spar. They'll be all right, he says. They make him smile, even today. The midday is perfectly weathered: a sneak of full fall in the air, football weather. Matlock wears a Ravens visor and talks so softly you wonder if he is always this soft-spoken, or whether the death of his boy has knocked the words out of him. A 1968 Oldsmobile is in the garage; his son had restored the classic. The car is a surviving point of pride.

ROME - Five men in the northern Italian city of Bologna were arrested after their behavior inside a basilica aroused police officers' suspicions that they were plotting a terrorist attack, Italian law enforcement officials said yesterday. The men, who were arrested Monday morning, included four Moroccans, according to the officials. Police at the San Petronio Basilica, which is one of Italy's Gothic treasures, had been on alert because it contains a fresco with a depiction of the prophet Muhammad among demons in hell that has drawn complaints from Muslims.

NEW YORK -- After her husband had been knocked out of his wheelchair and robbed of his video camera, and after her son had chased after the thief, all Paulette Pastre could scream was, "Parlez-vous francais?"Fortunately for Pastre, a French tourist on the final day of a weeklong vacation in New York City, a police car happened to be passing by. And fortunately, Officer Samuel Joseph-Pauline happened to be inside."Oui," said Joseph-Pauline, a nine-year police veteran whose parents came to this country from Martinique and who grew up speaking French.

ROBERT HARDIN is a special agent for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. When he goes out these days, he is careful to look over his shoulder. He's seen his share of bad guys. So there's nothing wrong with a little caution. But, Hardin isn't so worried about a gunman. Instead, he's concerned about the growth of do-it-yourself spy equipment that ranges from wireless cameras to audio bugs to phone-tap equipment. Maybe you should be looking over your shoulder, too. If you use the Web, there's almost no way you could avoid seeing ads for the X10 wireless spy camera, being sold for $ 79.95.

At 7:30 last Sunday morning, the 10-story Mercy Medical Center parking garage that filled nearly a block at the northwest corner of Calvert and Pleasant Streets in downtown Baltimore vanished behind great billowing clouds of ivory dust to the accompaniment of a jarring series of percussive blasts. A few minutes later, when the air had cleared, the garage was gone, reduced to a massive heap of broken concrete, twisted steel and mangled wire destined to be cleared to make way for construction of a new hospital building.

When I got a positive answer to my request to photograph the annual holiday lighting of the historic Washington Monument in Mount Vernon and the spectacular display of fireworks that accompanied it, I was both excited and a little apprehensive. The pressure was on to record this Charm City ritual for the front page on deadline, and to shoot video for The Sun's Web site. I set up a tripod for the still camera in an 11th-floor room at the Peabody Court Hotel at the west side of Mount Vernon Square, an often-used vantage point for photographing the monument.

I was looking at a friend's new computer with Windows 98 and noticed that the program list, the one that appears when you click Start/Programs, was not alphabetized. Try as I will, I could not get these to sort "correctly." Is this a bug or a feature of Win98?The reason that the Start menu doesn't list programs alphabetically is because one can put each entry wherever one wants it simply by dragging it to the desired spot, a feature not in Windows 95, where alphabetization was the norm. The plus side is that you can list programs that have similar functions together even if they have different names, for example, putting Adobe Acrobat with Xerox Text Bridge.

THE NEXT WAR, I heard on National Public Radio the other day, will be the first to be studied on the scene by Army historians. According to the report, the men and women of the Army's 104th Military Historians Detachment are in place in Saudi Arabia, ready to go.Somehow, I couldn't get that thought out of my mind, and when I went to bed that night, I had a bizarre dream.I was climbing over sand dunes in the desert. I was dressed like Peter O'Toole in "Lawrence of Arabia," watching the jet contrails in the sky and listening to the blast of artillery shells in the distance.
