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.

TRENTON - A New Jersey judge on Friday blocked attempts by environmental groups and a state senator to appeal the state's settlement with ExxonMobil Corp. in a high-profile pollution case. But the saga isn't over. The groups and State Sen. Raymond J. Lesniak (D., Union) immediately said they would appeal the judge's decision to the Appellate Division. At issue is a $225 million settlement the state struck with Exxon in March, following a decade of litigation over the oil company's contamination of more than a thousand acres of land at two sites in North Jersey.

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.

Friday the 13th will never be the same for the Smith family, which stepped forward Friday to claim a $429.6 million Powerball jackpot, the largest ever won in New Jersey. Pearlie Mae Smith and her seven adult children said they plan to tithe 10 percent of their winnings to their Pentecostal church, take vacations, and help others. "Wow. That's what it's like," Smith, 70, of Trenton, said at a news conference at state lottery headquarters in Lawrenceville. "I'm still trying to figure out what it's like.

DEAR ABBY: I have a hard time differentiating between enabling and helping my sister. Throughout her adult life, even while she was married, she has never been able to make ends meet. She's single now and in her 50s, a hardworking but underemployed, depressed individual. I have a good job and I feel guilty if I don't help her each month. (She doesn't ask but drops enough hints that I know things aren't going well.) I have suggested repeatedly that she needs to find a better job. I even send her job leads, but I'm not sure she ever applies.

Question: I love that you are big on each spouse's "having the other's back" - as they are on the same "team. " However, when is it OK not to have your partner's back? My spouse routinely makes statements that are patently and demonstrably untrue - easily disproved with a couple of clicks of a mouse. Yet I am berated (later) for not "having my spouse's back" when I don't publicly agree with Spouse in the face of nonbelief by Spouse's particular audience. When is it OK to say, "Honey, I love you, but when I believe you to be completely wrong, I won't have your back this time"?

New Jersey lawmakers are renewing a push to let the state take control of Atlantic City's finances in an effort to prevent bankruptcy for the resort town, shaken by casino closures. Legislation outlined Wednesday comes after Gov. Christie, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, and Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian agreed in principle last month that greater state involvement was needed. The proposal from Sweeney (D., Gloucester) and other senators would allow the state Local Finance Board to assume the "functions, powers, privileges, and immunities" of the city government for five years.

MAYOR NUTTER, City Council President Darrell Clarke and Deputy Mayor Alan Greenberger came to praise developer Eric Blumenfeld's "never-say-die" attitude in finally getting a deal done to renovate the Divine Lorraine Hotel. At a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday, both Nutter and Greenberger said the $44 million restoration would be a "tipping point" to enhance the revitalization of North Broad Street. "Restoring the Divine Lorraine to its former glory was among my top economic-development priorities," Nutter said.

Grab your wigs and fake boobs, guys: The glitter is in the audience for Divine/Intervention . The onstage show, which just opened at a nightclub called Voyeur (dark, dark, dark, with gigantic lavender-lit chandeliers), is actually a serious and often moving bio-drama about the counterculture icon known as Divine. Divine's real name was Glenn Milstead, a fat, unhappy kid from a middle-class home in Baltimore. How he wound up starring in John Waters' schlock/shock movies - where he was raped by a giant lobster in Multiple Maniacs , and ate a dog turd in Pink Flamingos , and made it mainstream big in Hairspray - is incidental here.

The last time his friends saw Glenn Milstead, he was waving from the balcony of his Los Angeles hotel room, singing "Arrivederci, Roma. " The next day, March 7, 1988, he was dead at 42 of cardiomegaly. He had died in his sleep; he weighed more than 300 pounds. The obituaries didn't just announce the death of Glenn Milstead; they marked the end of Divine, the larger-than-life "drag queen of the century," the trash goddess at the heart of such notorious films by director John Waters as Pink Flamingos , Female Trouble , and - teetering on the brink of respectability - Hairspray . The division between the queen and the man is at the heart of Divine/Intervention , a new play conceived by Braden Chapman and written by E. Dale Smith.

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.
