An assailant who uses "moral, psychological or intellectual force" in a rape can be just as guilty as one who uses physical force, the state Supreme Court decided yesterday. Women Organized Against Rape and the district attorney's office applauded the decision but an official of the public defender's office was critical of it, saying such an approach could "undercut the whole notion of force versus consent. " Ruling in a 1982 Philadelphia case involving an 8-year-old girl, the state's highest court yesterday expanded the legal definition of "forcible compulsion" to include "not only physical force or violence but also moral, psychological or intellectual force used to compel a person to engage in sexual intercourse against that person's will.

U.S. DISTRICT Judge Stewart Dalzell thinks that officers at Philadelphia International Airport displayed "abject cowardice" when dealing with 6-foot-6, 330-pound mentally disturbed ex-NFL lineman Alonzo Spellman. Your Honor, you're either an idiot or a Clint Eastwood fan. On that evening, the terminal was packed with people. Many were young children and the elderly. This situation was analyzed by the sergeant on the scene. Spellman was with his family and physician, who were pleading with the sergeant, stating that any type of police action would further infuriate Spellman and severely escalate the situation.

Reactions to the state Supreme Court decision that saying no is not enough to prove rape in Pennsylvania are ranging from consternation and concern - to, among the politically incorrect, chuckles. We're reminded of the refrain from an old pop tune: Your lips tell me no-no, But there's yes-yes in your eyes. Those lyrics seem to apply to the case of Commonwealth vs. Berkowitz, which was the basis for the high court's ruling. In that case, a woman alleged that when she entered a dorm room looking for her boyfriend, she was raped by the boyfriend's roommate, Robert Berkowitz.

I am a longtime elementary school disciplinarian. Teachers and I often have to correct and sometimes punish children for things which their parents could entering school for the first time. As a first step in having your child get along with peers, teach her not to tattle. Her reason for "tellin' on others," should not be to get someone into trouble and gleefully enjoy doing so, but to improve a bad situation. Teach that getting even does not do so. If "A" hits "B," and "B" hits back, "A" will not say to himself, "Oh, well, things are even now. " "A" will hit back, and the situation could escalate.

GETTING THE MORNING LINE ON THE ETIQUETTE OF SHOVING Israelis who butt into line stand warned: Those pushed aside have rabbinical sanction to push back. "Line-jumping in Israel is a problem," Rabbi Yosef Ginsberg told the Associated Press yesterday, explaining why he published a commentary authorizing people to physically resist interlopers. Israel's pervasive bureaucracy makes waiting in line and line-jumping a national pastime. Rabbi Ginsberg, 40, publishes a column in "The Weekly Talk," a review of biblical texts distributed each Friday in Israeli synagogues.
