Maestro Rafael Kubelik's death last weekend recalls a moment so emotional it still brings back a catch in the throat. It was June 1990. I was in Prague with a group of American editorial writers at the time of Czechoslovakia's first nationwide free election since before World War II. Communism had collapsed, and freedom had returned behind the Iron Curtain. For many of the Czechs and Slovaks jammed into Old Town Square that June afternoon, it had been the first free election in their lives.

ISSUE | CLINTON Euphoria vote I would like a recent letter writer, or anyone else, to please let me know what Hillary Clinton has done to make her the most qualified presidential contender ("Clinton critics," April 27). As first lady, her health-care program didn't work out. As a senator from New York - where my cat could be elected if running on the Democratic ticket - she didn't pass one piece of significant legislation. And as secretary of state, with the Russian reset, Iran nukes, and more, well, how's that working out?

The closest most contemporary Americans have ever come to war is the television set. So for some, initial reports of success in the first part of the United States-led air strike against Iraq triggered near-euphoria. It was a lot like Nintendo. Zap, there goes the Iraqi air force. Zap, there go the Scud missiles. Overnight, the American people - who told pollsters Sunday they believed a war in the Persian Gulf would be long and hard - changed their minds. In the morning, the polls said most Americans thought the war would be over quickly.

That old euphoria. Like the 24-hour flu, it seems to just come and go. Only seven weeks ago, Newsweek magazine conducted a poll in which this question was asked: "Saddam Hussein has withdrawn from Kuwait, but remains in power in Iraq. Is this a victory for the U.S. and allied forces?" Fifty-five percent said yes, it was a victory. Only 38 percent said it wasn't. The rest didn't know or didn't care. Now the magazine has asked the very same question. This time 55 percent said, no, it wasn't a victory.

The men, women and children who have found refuge at this giant Army post after fleeing the violence in Kosovo and the mud of makeshift camps in Macedonia seem relaxed and eager to talk as they lounge in the sun on picnic benches under peaceful skies. The signs of trauma lie mainly below the surface. A teenage girl with long, curly hair sits beneath a tree, crying. A young mother, Florije Govori, says, "I don't know what happened to my family," and her face grows dark. A 19-year-old woman has been hospitalized for mental health reasons.

Rodney Duncan read all of the newspaper accounts detailing Lewis Lloyd's cocaine-related banishment from the NBA. He also read how Darryl Warwick, despondent because he had stooped to stealing money from relatives to buy coke, tried to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge. Lewis Lloyd. Darryl Warwick. These were not merely names to Rodney Duncan, who in 1976 was a first-team All-City basketball guard for Germantown Academy. They were acquaintances as well as fellow schoolboy stars - Lloyd as a forward at Overbrook, Warwick as a guard at West Philadelphia.

Traders at the New York Stock Exchange watched the market climb Tuesday, on its way to historic heights. The Dow Jones industrial average hit the 2,000 mark on Thursday, and ended the week at 2005.91, up 78.6 points for the week. But analysts cautioned investors not to get carried away by the euphoria - what goes up can also come down.

The finish line of a marathon is a place of undisguised emotion, with all pretense worn away by 26.2 pounding miles. Euphoria for some may never be matched. Exhaustion for others is deep and profound. Marathons can kill - one person died in the marathon and another during the half marathon. But for those who finish - 10,213 runners completed Sunday's Philadelphia Marathon and 9,413 the Half Marathon - the accomplishment will be long remembered. I spent seven hours at the finish line Sunday, watching, interviewing, and taking pictures along with staff photographer Sarah Glover.

Barack Obama has always said it was never about him. It was about us. And in the end, it was. Forget all of the polarization and backbiting. The voter suppression and racist dog whistles. The obsession with polls and the divisive parsing of our nation. On Tuesday, it was our turn. And we used our single most powerful weapon. The vote. Four years ago, I could hardly type the words to express my euphoria when the nation resoundingly placed its future in the hands of its first African American president.

January 27, 1990 | By GEORGE F. WILL
An unenthralled assessment of George Bush's first year as president is this: His campaign showed little promise and he has kept his promise. In foreign policy, he is perhaps the perfect president for America the bystander. Domestically, not since the 1920s have Americans looked less to the national government for leadership, or believed less that what it does matters to their lives. So in Bush, the man and the moment have met. A less-mild assessment of Bush's Year One is that his administration illustrates - in a sense is - the echoing emptiness at the core of contemporary politics.

The stock market is considered a leading economic indicator, and, boy, has it been leading all year long. The Standard & Poor's 500 index, which is often used as a proxy for the U.S. equity market, is up 16 percent since Dec. 31. Investors on Tuesday seemed to shake off last week's wariness over just when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke will pull back on the central bank's monetary stimulus - wariness that contributed to the...

This is the seventh in a series on healthy cooking classes at St. Martin De Porres School in North Philadelphia. The girls were so thrilled to see chicken thighs and drumsticks that they temporarily lost their minds. "Are we making fried chicken?" Hope Wescott asked breathlessly. "Sorry," I said. "Not in a class about healthy cooking. " In truth, I did test a version of oven-baked "fried" chicken - dipping it in yogurt and rolling it in smashed corn flakes - and it wasn't bad. But, honestly, it wasn't nearly as good as true fried chicken.

MARCH YOUR Penguins back home, Pittsburgh, and from your series loss to Philadelphia, take this lesson: Flightless birds shouldn't puck with the Flyers. From Claude Giroux's first goal just 32 seconds into the game to Brayden Schenn's final tally just seconds from the end, the orange and black clicked like clockwork on Sunday, even if the old ultraviolence seen earlier in the series was lacking. Flyers fans at the Wells Fargo Center worked like a well-oiled machine, too - pulsing in unison, chanting as one and blowing their lids when the team finally secured the opening round of the Eastern Conference in Game 6. "I am awesome!"

ENRIQUE IGLESIAS is finalizing production of three to four new tracks that will be part of a repackaged edition of his hit album, "Euphoria," set for release in November. One of those songs, "I Like How It Feels," featuring Pitbull, will be released to radio in two weeks. The fresh collaboration, produced by RedOne, stems from the close relationship established between Pitbull and Iglesias, who invited Pitbull to be part of the North American leg of his "Euphoria" tour, which kicks off Sept.

The 61-year-old mother of a bond trader killed during the attacks at the World Trade Center said she feared she would go to her grave before Osama bin Laden did. "Justice really has been served," said Judith Reiss of Yardley. "There's a special place waiting in hell for this man. " Reiss said she and her husband, Gary, whose 23-year-old son, Joshua, died on 9/11, feared that the mission to kill bin Laden had fallen off the front burner. "We're joyous," said Gary Reiss.

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell is writing a weekly sports column for the Daily News from a fan's perspective. His column appears Wednesdays.   PITCHERS AND catchers report in 4 days. That's truly a magical phrase. For the entire country it means the baseball season is just around the corner, but for those of us in cold-weather climates it means a whole lot more. For us, it means hope - hope that we will finally emerge from weeks and weeks of harsh cold, ice and snow.

Under a full moon and before a full house at the Susquehanna Bank Center on Sunday night, Phish did what jam bands ultimately do: They jammed. And jammed. Front man Trey Anastasio repeatedly found a groove and fingered fluid guitar solo after solo, to the rapturous delight of the crowd, most dancing in that form of writhing free body expression associated with hippies, Woodstock and the Grateful Dead. In their first area appearance since their 2004 hiatus, the veteran Vermont four-piece squeezed out 23 songs over three-plus hours.
