Life, it is said, is what happens while you are making plans. Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon was not supposed to be like this. Yet the idea of an "orderly unilateral withdrawal" always seemed a contradiction in terms, like a controlled free fall. The unsettling pictures of fleeing Lebanese and rejoicing hezbollah forces, however, do not change Israel's fundamental objectives, nor the chances of achieving them. Those objectives are straightforward: to leave Lebanon, restore security to the northern border, and safeguard the lives of our South Lebanese Army allies.

WHEN PUSH CAME to shove on Wednesday night at the Democratic presidential debate in New Hampshire, none of the major candidates would guarantee that combat troops would be out of Iraq by the end of their first term. Oh, by the way, that would be in the year 2013. Asked if they would guarantee the removal of troops, here were the replies: "I think it's hard to project four years from now," said Sen. Barack Obama. "It is very difficult to know what we're going to be inheriting," replied Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Fresh from a decisive election victory in which voter disaffection over Iraq played a pivotal role, Sen. Robert Menendez (D., N.J.) has returned to Washington, where he has already begun to pressure the Bush administration for troop withdrawals. Menendez, who was named to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he planned to make the war his top issue and would use his role on the committee to highlight what he believes is the administration's failed approach. He said he expected the committee, which Democrats will control when the new Congress takes office in January, to grill Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, national security adviser Stephen J. Hadley, and other senior administration officials at public hearings.

The Reagan administration wants U.S. companies operating in Angola to think about withdrawing because their operations there are subsidizing a pro-Soviet government and might be blocking U.S. efforts to settle the 10-year-old Angolan civil war, the administration's point man on southern Africa indicated yesterday. Assistant Secretary of State Chester Crocker stopped short of flatly asking the companies to withdraw from Angola. But he said the administration has "asked them to think" about their presence there.

The U.S. Pro Indoor Tennis Championships, which John McEnroe has turned into his personal showcase in recent years, will be without the four-time defending champion when play begins Monday. McEnroe, the world's second-ranked player, withdrew yesterday from the tournament. At the same time, the Men's International Professional Tennis Council (MIPTC) granted McEnroe's request for a reduction in the number of designated tournaments he must play this year. "He feels that he's got some nagging injury problems," said John McEnroe Sr., who notified tournament officials of his son's withdrawal.

The concept of the "do-over" may work in playground sports, but not in city elections, a Common Pleas Court judge ruled yesterday. President Judge Frederica Massiah-Jackson said that Anthony Clark could not undo his withdrawal from last week's Democratic primary for city commissioner because the law requires evidence that he was coerced or duped into making his initial decision. "There is not even a minimum threshold met," Massiah-Jackson said. Clark withdrew from the race the night before polls opened on May 20. After he won, Clark argued that he didn't know what he was doing when he signed papers asking to be removed from the ballot.

By keeping cravings at bay, medication-assisted substance-abuse treatment allows addicts to focus on the critical behavioral changes they must make to avoid relapse. Most insurance covers the meds. Naloxone (brand name Narcan) has been in the news recently as an overdose-reversal "rescue" medication. It is not used for treatment by itself. There are three main treatment medications: Methadone Method of action: An agonist, it activates the same opioid receptors as pain pills and heroin but dispensing is tightly controlled.

It is well-known that withdrawal doesn't really work. At least, that's the consensus from sex educators and locker-room sages. But now, four reproductive health researchers contend that the withdrawal method, commonly known as pulling out or, more delicately, coitus interruptus, has gotten a bad rap. They cite evidence indicating withdrawal is almost as reliable as condoms over the course of a year. And while interrupting intercourse before ejaculation has obvious drawbacks, it's a reasonable strategy for monogamous couples who aren't worried about venereal diseases and have difficulty with other methods.

Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Arlen Specter voted with his party yesterday and against an Iraq spending measure that sets a timetable for withdrawing U.S. forces. "Congress may ultimately have to use its power of the purse to establish an orderly withdrawal from Iraq," Specter said after the vote, "but this bill inappropriately micromanages the war and tells the enemy the date when they can win just by waiting us out. " Specter's vote is consistent with earlier statements he made that it is "impractical and of questionable legal authority" to set withdrawal dates if the consequences would be to guide the enemy's planning.

Ayden Laneader is less than 3 weeks old, but like any opiate-dependent person, he'll have to get clean one day at a time. The otherwise healthy Haddon Township boy was admitted Tuesday to Weisman Children's Rehabilitation Hospital in Marlton, where infants can be safely weaned off heroin, methadone, or prescription opiates to which they have been exposed in utero. "I want to be [involved in] his recovery," says Ayden's mother, Laura Laneader, 34, a methadone client for the last five years.

Now this is a fender mind-bender. When two motorists' vehicles collided Wednesday in Nicetown, one driver told the other that he was armed, forced him back into his vehicle, and made him withdraw money from an ATM to pay for the damage, police said. The victim, who was not injured, was nonetheless a nervous wreck after the incident. According to police, shortly before 10 a.m. the 20-year-old victim was in a traffic accident at Germantown and Hunting Park Avenues with an unknown man in a gold SUV. When the victim got out of his car to speak with the SUV driver, that man told the victim that he had a gun and that they were going to the nearest ATM so the victim could "dump" his account to pay for the damage, police said.

The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office withdrew all charges Tuesday against the suspect in a 1998 murder and dismemberment at a Chinatown restaurant, because the key witnesses against him have returned to China and were unavailable to testify against him.

A federal judge allowed U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah's original legal team to withdraw from his corruption case Monday, nearly two months after the lawyers first requested to drop the congressman as their client, citing a payment dispute. In a one-paragraph order, U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III dismissed lawyers Kevin Mincey, Thomas Fitzpatrick, Riley Ross III, and Shabrei Parker from the racketeering conspiracy case. Bartle had previously refused to let them withdraw, despite their contention that Fattah had not fully paid them in months.

A federal judge on Wednesday called U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah's decision to prioritize fund-raising for his reelection campaign above paying his lawyers "particularly unfair" but denied a request from his defense team to withdraw from his corruption case. U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III said that though the lawyers had not been fully paid in months, they were aware of the time and financial commitments when they signed on to Fattah's case. They ran a risk when they did not require the Philadelphia Democrat to pay their legal fees up front, Bartle wrote in an opinion.

The mastermind behind the April abduction and torture of a Jewelers Row shop clerk has a list of "28 to 30 reasons" why, three months after pleading guilty to federal kidnapping charges, he should be allowed to take it back. His mother didn't want him to confess, Salahudin Shaheed says. His lawyer was too soft-spoken. He didn't have his eyeglasses. He had a headache the day he changed his plea. As for his most serious allegation - that his sister was threatened with death by unknown men should he take his case to trial - prosecutors have described that as a "concocted fiction.

BELOW THE faded, purplish track marks on Melissa's pale inner arms are Latin words etched in black that mean "To Know Yourself Without Regret. " Not that the 41-year-old Rhawnhurst mom of three, who expects to lose her nursing license for the second time, is without remorse. She has plenty. Melissa long ago lost custody of one daughter, who is now 20. Daughter Mady, 8, was born irritable and jittery, with tremors and diarrhea, all symptoms of methadone withdrawal. During pregnancy, Melissa had taken doses of the synthetic opiate at a clinic instead of chasing a heroin high on the street.
