He has made mistakes, but he's human and learning. He is a caricaturist, a father, a God-fearing believer, a competitor, a winner. Allen Iverson is mourning the death of a close friend, but he has drawn strength and perspective from the friend's passing. He is short. He plays hard. He no longer finds joy in rapping. He is addicted to tattoos, and when he dies, he wants to know that he is going to heaven. All of these points are outlined in a compelling interview in the March issue of Playboy magazine, available on newsstands Friday.

SEATTLE BILLIONAIRE PLANS TO GIVE IT AWAY Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, the second-wealthiest American with a net worth of $6.1 billion, said in an interview published yesterday that ultimately he will give away 95 percent of his vast fortune. Gates, 38, told Playboy magazine that he plans to give the money away when he is in his 50s to charitable and scientific organizations, leaving a "modest amount" of perhaps $10 million to any children he might have. But he warned that his fortune is mostly on paper.

Phoenix Mercury forward Lisa Harrison won't be revealing all of herself for Playboy magazine, after all. "It came down to the money issue," she said. The last offer from Playboy was in six figures, she said, but wasn't enough. Harrison was offered a chance to appear in the magazine after winning the Playboy.com poll for "Sexiest Babe of the WNBA. " She had indicated she would consider appearing in Playboy because she could use the money. In last night's game: At New York, Vickie Johnson scored 22 points and the Liberty advanced to the Eastern Conference finals with a 72-61 victory over Miami in Game 3 of the best-of-three series.

Playboy magazine recently announced that it will do away with its famous photographs of heavily airbrushed, lightly attired women, an ironic development for countless men of a certain age who disingenuously claimed to subscribe "for the articles. " Those still yearning for antiquated chauvinist thrills, however, can find plenty of sympathy in the highest reaches of the Pennsylvania judiciary. Last year, while hurriedly exonerating state Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin in Harrisburg's then-blossoming pornographic email scandal, an attorney for the state's Judicial Conduct Board noted in a letter to the justice that the contents of his inbox "could best be described as mildly pornographic or sexually suggestive in the vein of material that commonly appears in Playboy magazine.

There is a cosmic ring to the title This Mansion Is a Hole: Hugh Hefner Throws a Party at the Center of the Universe that has little pertinence to the earthy content and atmosphere of the show itself. This is a piece steeped in sexual eroticism, suggestion and titillation - all that one would expect in something inspired by the founder of Playboy magazine and American high priest of sex. At least that's how Hefner was regarded in the 1960s, and pop culture of that era has been the concern of Whit MacLaughlin, head of the locally based New Paradise Laboratories theater group, in the comic trilogy that he and his company have been presenting at Philadelphia Fringe Festivals.

Roxanne Dacus, a former Long Island madam, had a few harsh words for Jessica Hahn yesterday. "She was a rather hard girl for her age," said Dacus. "Very arrogant . . . lazy . . . snotty . . . she hit below the belt. " Dacus, in a Penthouse magazine interview released this week, said Hahn worked for her as a prostitute 10 years ago. She alleged that Hahn had sex with as many as 40 men in one night. Hahn denies the charge. She says she was a virgin who was raped by PTL Club minister Jim Bakker.

Not long after the dominoes began falling in Eastern Europe, Playboy magazine bought a full-page ad in the New York Times to announce that it had become the first "American consumer magazine" to be published in Hungarian. Playboy said it was not surprised, "since we're the magazine that led a social revolution in America by standing for personal, political and economic freedom. " The headline on the ad read, "Exporting the American Dream. " More like a nightmare, since many of those who embraced the Playboy philosophy of "if it feels good, do it" have suffered broken marriages, unwanted pregnancies, abortion and AIDS.

Adapted from recent online discussions. Question: I do not know why I am so perturbed by my boyfriend's subscription to Playboy magazine, bought before he met me. We are not young, we're in our late 50s. He has volunteered to throw away issues still to come. I am happy about that. If he no longer wants the magazine because he has me, then we are in a good place. But I have a few reservations about what the man's mind-set is, and I do not know how to analyze the situation.

Call it part sporting event, part celebrity shout-out. Super Bowl's Party Week reached its peak last night. It was an overheated frenzy. It was a time when friends cut loose, dressed to impress, and tried to wheedle last-minute Super Bowl tickets. The streets were jammed with limos and stretch Hummers. Jacksonville's clubs throbbed with the crush of athletes, A list, B list and C list celebrities, and high-rollers. Among the three most-coveted tickets last night were for parties sponsored by Maxim, Sports Illustrated and Playboy magazines.

French sexpot-turned-author Brigitte Bardot was in a Paris court a few days ago, defending herself on charges of inciting racial hatred in her best-selling book, A Cry in the Silence, in which she wrote that she "opposed the Islamisation of France. " According to the BBC, Bardot, who faces up to a year in jail or a fine, apologized in court, saying: "I never knowingly wanted to hurt anybody. It is not in my character. " She also acknowledged that the book, which deals with issues such as racial mixing, immigration, the role of women in politics, and Islam, is no masterpiece.

When Lynn Morgan was growing up, she had posters of tennis players on her walls and dreamed of playing professionally. Today, as the chief executive officer of the Women's United Soccer Association, part of Morgan's job is getting young girls to recognize players in the professional soccer league and have their posters on bedroom walls across the country. Marketing to soccer-playing girls has been a major component of the WUSA since it started last year. Part of what makes the WUSA different is the responsibility players have in promoting the league - a strategy Morgan is pushing.

TROUBLED ACTOR Robert Downey Jr. got a nugget of good news yesterday in California: Riverside County prosecutors have reduced a charge in one of his pending court cases to a misdemeanor. (The arrest last November at Merv Griffin's Resort Hotel and Givenchy Spa, just to clarify which one.) But the "Ally McBeal" star still faces a felony count of possessing cocaine and another misdemeanor count of being under the influence of a controlled substance, said Deputy District Attorney Tamara Capone.
