I'M EMBARRASSED just thinking about it. I've owned Netflix since it was $19 a share. When it hit $277, I sold. The next day it went up to $283, and I thought, "What was I thinking?" and bought it back. The rest is sad history: It's now around $90 per share. My original gut instinct was accurate, but greed got in the way and I'm paying for it now. I've lost a lot, but at least I did milk the stock over the years, taking profits numerous times to expand my portfolio in other directions.

* SURVIVOR'S REMORSE. 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Starz. Tichina Arnold's mother-son talks have come a long way since she was dispensing advice and discipline to a young Chris (Tyler James Williams) in Chris Rock's autobiographical sitcom "Everybody Hates Chris. " A loooong way. On Saturday's episode of the Starz comedy "Survivor's Remorse," Arnold's character, Cassie Calloway, laid out some facts of life to her basketball star son, Cam (Jessie T. Usher). It was a mother-son sex talk for the ages (if not for all ages)

Mike Tyson has not demonstrated "even a glimmer of remorse," an attorney for the woman Tyson was convicted of raping said yesterday. The former heavyweight champion sent a letter earlier this month to the judge who presided over his 1992 rape trial. He asked that she reconsider her decision last month denying him an early release from prison. Michael Weisman, who represents teen-age beauty contestant Desiree Washington, said yesterday the letter is an attempt on Tyson's part to justify "his violent act of rape.

Act now or lose out on a great deal. " Expect to hear variations on this theme a lot in the next three months as City Council is faced with considering - and approving - a complicated financing and location deal for two sports stadiums. The pressure will grow to act before the end of Mayor Rendell's term. The Eagles have structured their finances with the expectation of revenues from a new stadium for the 2002 season, which can't happen if there's much more of a delay. If the stadium deal falls through, the team could decide to build its practice facility outside the city, which then would lose hundreds of thousands of dollars in wage taxes of highly-paid players.

They were best friends, sitting around smoking cigars and talking football on the porch of a Southwest Philadelphia home last year. But even friends can violently disagree. When Muhammad Diallo, 31, and Michael Paul, 30, had a squabble, Paul ended up dead, on Aug. 29, 1997, said Assistant District Attorney Ann Pontario yesterday. "We started arguing over football players and other things," Diallo told Homicide Detective Arthur Mee. Pontario said Diallo, of Lynn, Mass.

* HOMELAND. 9 p.m. Sunday, Showtime. * SURVIVOR'S REMORSE. 9 p.m. tomorrow, Starz. * MULANEY. 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Fox 29. REMEMBER what Carrie Mathison was like before Sgt. Nicholas Brody entered her life? You probably don't, even if you've never missed an episode of Showtime's "Homeland," which returns for its fourth season on Sunday with a Carrie (Claire Danes) we've never really seen before, or at least one who's not necessarily the most screwed-up person in every room she enters.

Saying "I told you so" yields a certain satisfaction, but this time it's mighty thin. Being right isn't a good feeling when it means your country has become weaker, more divided and less secure. A year ago today, the Editorial Board that I lead launched a series of issues essays on the 2004 election called "21 Reasons to Elect John F. Kerry. " For each of 21 days, we offered an analysis on a key issue, from Iraq to deficits to stem-cell research, critiquing President Bush's performance and plans.

By 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Mark Geisenheyner knew there was only one way his weekend could end. The two bodies he had left moments before in a remote Douglass Township farmhouse threatened to put him behind bars for the rest of his life or worse. Three others he'd shot - a New York City plumber, his wife, and a family friend - lay bleeding, but alive, and would surely identify him as their attacker. Geisenheyner, a 51-year-old career criminal whose adult life consisted of one arrest and prison term after another, was determined things would end differently this time.

This is the creep who pawned his wife's engagement ring three days after police hauled her lifeless body from a bathtub at the couple's Main Line home. While he mourned publicly, Craig Rabinowitz dropped by a riverfront club for private, quality time with his stripper friend - a woman on whom he'd lavished thousands. He may have squandered up to $500,000 on his strip-club compulsion - largely money conned out of family and friends. So it was long past time for Rabinowitz to do something for someone other than himself.
