Sixers' Andre Iguodala is keeping an exclusive diary for the Daily News at the World Championships. The latest entry comes after Team USA's 70-68 win over Brazil, which means the Americans have earned a spot in the elimination round. Iguodala finished with three points - all from the free throw line - and attempted just one field goal in 29 minutes. He also had five rebounds and five steals.     I know my role on this team. The main thing is we got the win. All the other stuff doesn't matter.

The Diary of Anne Frank has become this century's primer in the illumination of the human spirit. The pages written from her hiding place in Holland have made the young - and doomed - girl the symbol of hope, love and affirmation amid devastation. Her diary, published after she disappeared in the death camps late in World War II, has been a book and the basis of films, plays and meditations. In its latest transformation, it is the basis of a series of concerts around the country to raise money for UNICEF, the United Nations relief agency for children.

There is the "let go and let God" movie. And then there is Diary of a Mad Black Woman, a "let go, let God, and let 'er rip!" affair. Produced and written by gospel-theater phenom Tyler Perry, who plays three roles, Diary is a very curious and very entertaining mix, the Labradoodle of inspirational romantic-comedy-melodramas. If John Waters spliced together the plots of Far From Heaven and Big Momma's House and let Pedro Almod?var direct, it might resemble this frisky, unpredictable genre-bender that keeps the faith as it keeps it real.

Valiant is one word for Carrie Snodgress. There are others: direct, indefatigable, thoughtful. She characterizes herself as a good listener. She's not a bad talker, either. The actress, whose quiet rage as Tina in Diary of a Mad Housewife (1970) may have created more feminists than Simone de Beauvoir inspired in her entire career, is now playing a noisy psycho-killer terrorizing Charles Bronson in Murphy's Law. What's a nice gal like her doing in a movie like this? "I'm not exactly financially solvent," Snodgress volunteers candidly from a Manhattan hotel tower, Central Park spread like a flowered carpet outside her picture window.

Sen. Bob Packwood used a curious one-two punch on national television yesterday, saying his memory was sound enough that he could categorize some diary entries as erroneous, but so dull that he drew blanks on people and events recounted in other passages. Three days after passages from his diary were made public and helped force his resignation from the Senate on Thursday, the Oregon Republican insisted that many accounts in the diary - dictated in his own voice over 25 years - were misstated or never happened.

The day after the Oscars no one in Hollywood was talking about Million Dollar Baby kayoing The Aviator. The talk was that Diary of a Mad Black Woman, a genre-bending slapstick dramedy of reconciliation written by and starring Tyler Perry, elbowed past the Will Smith romance Hitch to take in $22 million. While it's unusual for a film that's not on everybody's radar to open at No. 1, it's not as unusual as Diary itself. Faith-based without being preachy, sexy without being graphic, and as hilarious as it is serious, Diary is playing to audiences beyond its core constituency of African American women, pulling in $12 million during its second weekend.

WILMINGTON - His garden stroll with Adolf Hitler left Alfred Rosenberg invigorated. Rosenberg was already one of the most notorious and powerful Nazis, chief architect of ethnic cleansing policies and the man responsible for plundering billions of dollars of art from European Jews. At the meeting in April 1941, Hitler spoke of a larger role. "Your hour has come," he said, according to an account Rosenberg scrawled in his diary. For nearly 70 years, the infamous diary, an unprecedented insider's glimpse of the Third Reich, was lost or hidden.

A field diary partially written with berry juice on old newsprint, paper scraps, and book margins in the last years of the life of British explorer David Livingstone is legible for the first time in 141 years with the help of modern spectral-imaging technology and the old-fashioned sleuthing of a professor at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Adrian S. Wisnicki, an assistant professor of 19th-century British literature, studies the works of Victorian-era explorers and novelists, including Livingstone, Richard Burton, and Joseph Conrad, based on their travels to Africa and across the British Empire.

*  GAME OF THRONES . 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO. Where's Arya? The younger of the two Stark daughters (Maisie Williams) wasn't in last week's Season 5 premiere, but she's far from forgotten. This weekend, she finally gets off the boat she boarded in last year's finale. *  ORPHAN BLACK . 9 p.m. Saturday, BBC America. The storytelling's twistier than ever, and as Season 3 opens Tatiana Maslany continues to dazzle in multiple roles.

Seeing the movie based on her graphic novel, The Diary of a Teenage Girl , premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last week was an experience Phoebe Gloeckner will never forget. It's also one she doesn't entirely remember. Gloeckner, 54 and Philadelphia-raised, recalled a few days later that "it was almost like standing by the railroad tracks and watching a really long train whiz by. You know it's a train, but after it's gone, you can't remember any of the particular cars. "   Published in 2002, her book is a hybrid that mixes prose and comics to tell the story of a sexually curious young woman named Minnie Goetze growing up in the libertine San Francisco of the mid-1970s.

Last spring, when my wife Gretta and I began planning a trip to Paris to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in September, we knew this would probably be our only opportunity to realize a dream Gretta had nurtured for years: to make a pilgrimage to the countryside where her father, William, had fought in World War I. William arrived in France in spring 1918. From then on, until his return to the United States in 1919, he kept a diary. He was with the Army as a machine-gunner in the 28th Division.

On the way to his execution, William Johnson was paraded through camp to a large open field where 10,000 Union soldiers waited. This was a warning to them. Desert, as Johnson did, and suffer the same fate. "Saw man ride by in a wagon," Capt. Charles Hall of the Fourth New Jersey Volunteers wrote on Dec. 13, 1861. "Preceeded by his coffin & the 12 men that were detailed to shoot him. " Eight men fired, and when Johnson still showed signs of life, four more opened up. "Heard the Report & then marched round & saw the dead man lying on ground," Hall, of Palmyra, wrote.

Q: I've been happily married for 20 years and we have two wonderful kids. Recently, I made an awful discovery. I was cleaning out the attic and came across an old box of my wife's stuff from before we met. Looking through it, I discovered a diary that she had kept of an affair she was having with an older, married man. That man is now my boss! My wife never mentioned this, and now I am obsessed with it. I feel guilty having looked at her diary, but I really want to ask her about it. This has affected how I feel at work.

NEW ORLEANS - Before Cpl. Thomas "Cotton" Jones was killed by a Japanese sniper in the Central Pacific in 1944, he wrote what he called his "last life request" to anyone who might find his diary: Please give it to Laura Mae Davis, the girl he loved. Davis did get to read the diary - but not until nearly 70 years later, when she saw it in a display case at the National World War II Museum. "I didn't have any idea there was a diary in there," said the 90-year-old Mooresville, Ind., woman.

All season, I've been mourning the loss of the Barrymore Awards and their formal recognition of this region's theatrical excellence. So, in their memory (and in this production's delusional spirit), I nominate Quintessence Theatre Group's The Diary of a Madman , an adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's satirical short story, in whatever categories it would have qualified: best actor, director, production, music, actress. Whatever. This isn't a perfect production, and we'll get to that, but it is brave, bold, and affecting, with a central performance (in a two-person cast, sort of)
