THE ONGOING SAGA of Lindsay Lohan and her parents is so oddly pathetic, her family can't even get an intervention right. TMZ.com reports that Daddy Michael tried one on Friday, and when he arrived at Lindsay's Beverly Hills home, she not only didn't let him in, she called the cops on him. Mommy Dina , of course, criticized Michael's intervention plan, telling TMZ, "This sole act by my ex was not an intervention nor was this extreme antic sanctioned by...

By Harvey M. Sapolsky and Benjamin H. Friedman America's halfhearted adventure in Libya falls within a cycle of U.S. military intervention since the end of the Cold War: Success brings hubris, hubris causes overreach and failure, and failure breeds caution - though not necessarily restraint. Once another cautious intervention seems to succeed, the cycle begins anew. The first major post-Cold War U.S. military intervention was cautious. Once an American-led coalition ejected Iraqi forces from Kuwait, in 1991, the first Bush administration resisted pressure to overthrow Saddam Hussein by marching on to Baghdad or fighting alongside Shiite insurgents.

EVERYONE sitting in the waiting room at Family Court was being deliberately civilized for the sake of the child whose future was to be decided that day. Was he to return to his negligent mother or remain permanently in the custody of his paternal grandparents? The only unrelated witness there was the boy's second-grade teacher. The teacher had been asked to testify to his nearly perfect attendance and academic progress while living with his grandparents, compared to his prior year with Mom. The waiting continued.

LOS ANGELES - Leif Garrett didn't want to go to rehab - or at least not "Celebrity Rehab. " "I didn't want to have a camera stuck in my face while I was trying to kick," said Garrett, the 1970s teen idol once as famous for his singing and acting as his mane of blond hair. "I thought, 'It's nobody's freaking business.' But I finally came to the realization: It's everybody's business, because it's been in the papers. Instead of paying to go to rehab, why not get paid for it? And show the world that I am no longer using?"

The recent deaths of U.S. servicemen in Somalia, and current debate over whether, when and how deeply to involve U.S. armed forces in Haiti and the former Yugoslavia, pose difficult moral and pragmatic issues. Our standing by and watching hundreds of thousands starve or be victimized by "ethnic cleansing" without taking action seems deeply repugnant. But Americans are understandably reluctant to send their sons and daughters into war, and especially into potential quagmires. Unquestionably, peaceful solutions are preferable to military force, and even a cursory review of recent situations in which the U.S. intervened militarily, such as Grenada, Panama, the Gulf War or Somalia, would indicate that diplomacy emphasizing conflict resolution, as opposed to headline-making confrontations, might well have secured better and far less costly results.

One thing is certain: Terri Schiavo's life will come to an end one day. As will all of our lives. What's not clear is whether hers will end in the coming days, or years from now. Nor whether the brain-damaged woman who grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs will be attached to a feeding tube. Schiavo's life since her disabling illness 15 years ago has been one full of uncertainties - and a life in search of closure. The removal on Friday of her feeding tube, upon orders from a Florida judge, looked to be a step toward Schiavo finding peace.

The Vietnam War and the American Revolution were similar in that they demonstrated that a foreign power cannot suppress a war of national liberation, a Temple University military historian said yesterday. Speaking to about 75 people as part of a Pennsylvania Historical Society lecture series about the Vietnam War, Professor Russell Weigley asserted that the experience of the British in their American colonies and that of the United States in Vietnam suggest that "when confronting a national liberation movement, intervention will always be counterproductive.

WASHINGTON - President Obama on Monday declared the U.S.-led military intervention in Libya a success, saying that it had averted "a massacre" by longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi and that NATO's takeover of the multilateral mission this week means the United States can shift to a support role with less risk and cost. "Tonight, I can report that we have stopped Gadhafi's deadly advance," Obama said, speaking from the National Defense University in Washington. The address was designed to respond to criticism that he had not sufficiently explained the goals of the first major military involvement he has initiated abroad.

IF THE NUTTY SET of circumstances is true, as police allege, Nicole Hathcock is a real ball-breaker. When Hathcock, 36, staged a drug intervention for her brother earlier this month in Upper Providence, Montgomery County, things went "very wrong" and she ended up slicing his testicle with her fingernail, causing a gash that required seven stitches, police said. Hathcock had staged the intervention at her parents' house on High Street on Aug. 11 to address Robert Rosenberger's alleged rampant drug use, according to court documents.

AFTER THAT meeting last Wednesday called together by the stadium district powers that be, I have some thoughts and a real concern to those who live close to Darien and Packer. I agree that all of South Philadelphia should stick together and nothing should go into a neighborhood that the residents do not want. And, yes, our elected officials know they work for us, especially those officials who are now under attack. However, casino hearings were held more than once at the Convention Center last year and the turnout was minimal, even though at the time three locations between Front Street and 10th at Packer/Pattison were possible locations.

ONE OF the points that the Democratic candidate for governor makes is that he supports raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. On his website he cites the Economic Policy Institute and endorses their proposal to raise the minimum wage to the aforementioned $10.10. But when you go to their website you find that their plan calls for a $0.95 wage increase over three years which eventually gets to $10.10 in 2016. I don't believe that Wolf has made that differentiation clear. So if you're thinking that if you vote for Mr. Wolf in November that you're going to be getting paid $10.10 as soon as he assumes office, then you're mistaken.

When NFL running back Ray Rice applied to a pre-trial intervention program on May 1 - which, if completed, would help dismiss the charges against him - he had to clear more hurdles than many other applicants. Those accepted into the program have typically committed minor crimes, such as theft or drug possession. Rice, accused of punching his then-fiancée in an elevator at Atlantic City's Revel Casino Hotel earlier this year, was charged with aggravated assault - a violent crime.

THE HEARTBREAKING and alarming news that one in five high school students is involved with either DHS or the juvenile justice system should be a wake-up call for systemic change. Even though we should never abandon these students or give up hope, the intervention that has the best chance of saving them must happen as early as possible. Blaming their dysfunctional homes as an excuse not to fund early intervention programs only exacerbates the problem. Meanwhile, many teachers apply for positions in urban schools at all levels for the purpose of making a difference.

THERE ARE a number of legitimate reasons to oppose intervention in Syria. There are many smart people, people whom I respect and with whom I share a philosophical foxhole, who lay out those reasons with eloquence and passion. *  Why now? (Why, indeed, when we did nothing in Rwanda and the Sudan?) *  Syrian President Bashar Assad is no worse than the Islamic jihadists challenging his authority. (True, even though he has bigger guns.) *  It's a civil war. Why should Americans risk our own blood and treasure to save Syrian souls?

Doctors have gotten better at saying no to antibiotics when patients have viral ailments, but researchers wanted to tackle a different aspect of the nation's overprescribing problem: giving the wrong antibiotic to patients with bacterial infections. Antibiotics don't work against viruses, although many parents still want them. They do work against bacteria. Yet doctors often prescribe powerful broad-spectrum antibiotics when a drug that only kills a few bugs will do. Infectious-disease specialists want doctors to save the strongest antibiotics for the toughest bacteria.

THE FAMILY OF Dr. Sidney Wallace ran out of words in trying to describe him: "Physician, scholar, author, teacher, researcher, inventor, businessman, painter, sculptor, cartoonist, songwriter, singer. " And, oh yes, "outstanding husband, father and grandfather. " It was not hard for those who knew Sidney Wallace to believe that one man could embody all these splendid characterizations. Add one more accomplishment: He once cured himself of kidney cancer. Sidney Wallace, a pioneer in the field of interventional radiology, developer of a cancer drug and an artist and musician in what spare time he allowed himself, died May 25 of cancer.
