''Playboy of the Western World'' isn't terribly exciting theater. Time has taken some of its thunder away. It is, however, an interesting play, one that has not lost its relevance. Its theme, that man, given the right conditions, is the animal he always was, is as pertinent today as it was in 1907 when the play, written by J.M. Synge, was produced in Ireland.At the time, the Irish threw things at the actors. They didn't like the fact that the Irish were being portrayed as drunken, savage peasants every bit as cruel as those in ''Zorba the Greek.

Paris. -- The secular world, absorbed in the political contest, too readily misinterprets or underrates the role played by spiritual leadership. Then, when religious belief surfaces, it finds itself sometimes bemused, often beset.We saw this briefly during the Republican convention in the American election when, almost effortlessly, the religious right stole the party platform.More ominously and with more lasting effect, the coming to power in Iran 13 years ago of the Ayatollah Khomeini took the Western world so totally by surprise it floundered for years.

As Heidi Buttner drove through a Haitian slum last week, a small child banged on her car and begged for water."When I gave him bottled water, it was as if I had given him the best present he could ever have," said Ms. Buttner, 22.Her voice cracked as she spoke of the more than 20 children who later swarmed around her with cries for water. She had no more for them."It changed the whole way I think, to know people have to live like that," she said. "I saw children with distended tummies who have never seen a glass of clean water.

VIENNA, Va. - It's probably safe to say that old-style Russian-American summitry is dead. Even the word "summit" seems somehow inappropriate since it conjures up the image of two superpowers competing around the planet. Russia is no longer a superpower, nor does it pretend to be. Yet President Bush should have much to talk about with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow this week because one core problem remains: Russia still has a powerful nuclear arsenal even though the Soviet Union collapsed more than a decade ago. Over four decades, the equilibrium of force between the two countries was roughly in balance and was kept that way to preclude a direct confrontation.
