RE JULY 24 cover story ("Between a Rock and a Hard Place") and accompanying photo (by the way, the headline is a riot) about Kobe giving his beauteous wife, Vanessa, an 8-carat purple diamond, one of the world's rarest jewels, worth $4 million: Who really cares, with all the poor starving children in Africa, AIDS scouring the earth, even in this country, but especially Africa, you'd think we'd all be disgusted with such an extravagant, ostentatious display...

Discount diamond dealer Ron Perlstein was placed on four years' probation today and ordered to work out a "fair and equitable, straightforward" settlement with more than 600 customers he swindled. Municipal Judge J. Earl Simmons announced his decision after Perlstein, 34, pleaded "nolo contendere" (no contest) to 613 counts of deceptive business practices. Before Perlstein entered his plea, which is equivalent to pleading guilty, Simmons dismissed felony charges of theft, tampering with records and securing documents by deception.

Tough-talking gangsters, dangerous gunplay and frenetic camera work highlight "Snatch" (VHS: priced for rental; DVD: $27.99), Guy Ritchie's follow-up to his indie hit "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. " Similar in tone but with a bigger cast and larger palette, "Snatch" follows a fight-fixing ring and a bag of pilfered diamonds from one hoodlum to another. Our narrator is the likable thug Turkish (Ritchie regular Jason Statham), who recruits a mush-mouthed Gypsy boxer (played hilariously by Brad Pitt)

THE STIRRING, philosophically minded Swedish drama "Simon and the Oaks" covers 13 years, during which the title character grows from a boy, played by Jonatan S. Wachter, to a man, played by Bill Skarsgard. In the process, young Simon Larsson weathers some pretty profound storms, puberty not included. (The film jumps forward in time at one point, leaving out a substantial chunk of Simon's adolescence.) That World War II is one of those storms is mitigated by the fact that Simon is a Swede, living in a country that managed to maintain its neutrality, while neighboring Norway and Denmark were occupied by the Nazis.

With the addition of righthander Scott Mathieson to the active roster, the Phillies now boast two Canadians (infielder Pete Orr is the other.) Only the Minnesota Twins (Justin Morneau, Rene Tosoni) and the Seattle Mariners (Erik Bedard, Michael Saunders) can say the same. The all-time leader in games played by a Canadian is 1,988 by Larry Walker. He's the hits and home runs leader, too. But Ferguson Jenkins is the only Canadian-born player in the Hall of Fame. He, of course, began his career with the Phillies in 1965.

Detectives Arthur Root and Ken McCann always use the diamond to crack their cases. It works like a gem, but this diamond doesn't sparkle - it deduces. "Most missing-person cases are diamonds," Root said, turning a square napkin diagonally to illustrate his model. He pointed to the top corner of the diamond. "You start with a phone call from the client here, and then you simply build up a data base, until you get out to these points," Root said, moving his finger to the center of the napkin.
