In the Sunday Magazine article on condoms you quoted Molly Kelly of the Pennsylvanians for Human Life as saying, "I'd rather sell kids on self- control. " There are all kinds of good reasons why young people should be discouraged from getting involved in sexual relationships. So, by all means, preach abstinence. But don't end the sermon there. If you are really "pro-life" you have an obligation to go further. You must tell these young people that if despite your advice they are going to engage in sexual relations, they should follow the best medical advice available on how not to transmit or receive a deadly virus.

In case anyone hasn't noticed, it's a presidential election year. George Bush has certainly noticed. He has also noticed his year-long swoon in popularity since the glory-filled time of Desert Storm. This decline has been attributed to his lack of concern and/or ability regarding domestic issues. Comparing the firm, decisive voice of conscience that was George Bush in January 1991 with the backsliding, indecisive, tell-them-what-they-want-to- hear politician of today can be jarring to the uninitiated.

Hispanics in Camden, Burlington and Mercer Counties are getting the answers to their questions about heart disease, cancer, diabetes and nutrition from a television talk show. The Saturday morning show, Dr. Castillo y Su Salud (Dr. Castillo and Your Health), has been gaining popularity among Hispanics who don't have access to medical advice they can comprehend, said Jose Castillo, a general practitioner whose program has appeared on WTGI-TV (Channel 61) since April. "I worry about the fact that so many Hispanics were just not being reached with important health information," Castillo said in an interview.

Bill Frist still keeps a white doctor's coat in his car and has always been willing to dispense medical advice - whether during the anthrax scare on Capitol Hill or on overseas trips he makes to provide medical care to the poor. The Tennessee heart surgeon-turned-politician has a reputation as a deliberate thinker, a recognized expertise on health care issues and a willingness to reach across the aisle - even on issues opposed by others in his party. For instance, when Republicans jettisoned President Clinton's 1995 nomination of Henry Foster as surgeon general, Frist joined Democrats in trying to salvage the nomination of Foster, a fellow Tennessean whom he had known for years.

Charles Barkley didn't feel he needed a crutch to hold him up after the 76ers lost, 101-85, to Chicago yesterday. Late in the second quarter, he didn't believe he needed his knee brace any longer, either. The Sixers' captain suffered a second-degree sprain, which is a tear, of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee March 31 against Cleveland. The injury cost him seven games. He wore a protective brace during the last three games of the season, and had worn it through the first six games of the postseason.

When Amanda Peet learned she was booked as a guest on David Letterman's show this month, she called her sister Alisa, an intern at Temple University Hospital, to get the lowdown on shingles. The actress wanted to give the information to the talk-show host, who was diagnosed with the illness earlier this year. "I wanted to . . . help enlighten him," she said. "I'm really upset that he had shingles. " Alas, Peet never got to proffer medical advice to Letterman, thanks to the tight shooting schedule of her latest film, an untitled project with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton.

MELBOURNE, Australia - Sloane Stephens sat for nine minutes, mostly staring at the court and trying to forget the curious timing of Victoria Azarenka's medical timeout. She may have been the only one trying to ignore it. The 19-year-old American had just saved five match points and broken Azarenka. But she knew she had to hold serve to stay in her first Grand Slam semifinal whenever Azarenka, the No. 1 player and defending Australian Open champion, returned to Rod Laver Arena. The restless murmuring in the crowd gave way to slow claps.

Sidney A. Greenblatt, 81, of Marlton, a longtime South Jersey pharmacist and a military veteran, died from complications of multiple myeloma on Thursday, Dec. 2, at Virtua Marlton. Mr. Greenblatt, longtime owner of Stiles Pharmacy in Moorestown, was a pharmacist in the old-fashioned sense. He would remove customers' splinters and tell people what they should take for a cold. Politicians would come into his store just to chat, and he always had a smile for patrons, his family said. "He was very outgoing.

Jim Fregosi spent the off-day at home in Tarpon Springs, Fla. Since he was in the neighborhood, he decided to watch two of his sore-armed pitchers throw in Clearwater. While the Phillies manager saw Tommy Greene and Bobby Munoz work on the side Monday, he did not rate the performances of his disabled starters. Munoz (sprained elbow ligament) will pitch in a game at extended spring training later this week, Fregosi said. For Greene, the picture remains less clear. According to the manager, no timetable has been set for Greene as he attempts to strengthen a right shoulder that continues to hurt.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - You're getting interviewed at the Super Bowl, people expect sweetness and light. It's a given that you're the luckiest guy in the world, so fortunate to be playing for the best gosh-darned organization in sports. Just about every question is about how this or that wonderful aspect of your team has helped bring you to the brink of winning the NFL championship. Sometimes the story is a little more complicated. Michael Robinson, the Seattle Seahawks fullback who led Penn State to the 2005 Big Ten title as a quarterback, definitely feels lucky to be here.

CHICAGO - U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who has given no hint of when he'll return to work four months after taking medical leave, will head back to the Mayo Clinic for a checkup "soon," his father, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, said Sunday. The Democratic congressman from Illinois was released from the Rochester, Minn., clinic in September after seeking treatment for bipolar disorder and gastrointestinal issues. He has been with his family in Washington since, but has not appeared in public, campaigned beyond a recent robocall or said when he'll return to Capitol Hill.

Michele Vaughn is chair of the Chester County Democratic Committee Women are under attack in Pennsylvania. At a time when our governor and our legislature should be fixing unemployment, improving education, and repairing our crumbling infrastructure, they have instead focused their political and personal agenda on attacking women's rights. House Bill 1077, which is intended to humiliate, intimidate, and punish women who seek abortions, is one of the most reprehensible pieces of legislation Harrisburg has ever produced.

After a two-hour closed-door hearing, Delaware County child-welfare officials retained their temporary custody of Mazeratti Mitchell, 16, county Solicitor John McBlain said. Judge Mary Alice Brennan could rule on the boy's treatment at any time, McBlain said.

GOOD THING those pesky drug possession charges Robert Downey Jr. was facing last month didn't get in the way of the troubled addict acting in some kick-butt videos. Variety says the former "Ally McBeal" star was back home in front of the cameras Tuesday, filming a music video for the song "I Want Love. " That much we've surmised, Mr. Downey. The video was shot at the Greystone Manor in Beverly Hills, Calif. - nice pad to hang in while on probation. See Sam Taylor-Wood direct Robert.
