NEW YORK - Carnival Cruise Lines prices have taken a dip this spring, according to pricing data, and some industry observers blame headlines about problems on several Carnival ships. Todd Elliott, owner of Cruise Vacation Outlet, said his agents had seen a drop in price of 20 percent or more for equivalent cruises. "Rates are far lower than I have seen in a while; for example, the Carnival Dream, seven nights, Eastern Caribbean out of Port Canaveral, May 4 is $299 per person," he said.

For $39,000 (plus tax and delivery charges), you can own the world. Well, you can own a replica of it.

A crew of six was needed to carry the globe and hoist it, hemisphere by hemisphere, into place, suspended from the ceiling. The store, Rand McNally's fifth, will be open to the public on Aug. 31.

This war is . . . the end of Europe, the end of the United States, the end of Serbia, and the end of Kosovo. But it is the beginning of the world. Why? This illegal war (because it was taken on without the United Nations) confirms the existence of a right in principle to intervene in cases of serious violations of human rights in any country. It is a first step in a process that is leading to the creation of a global police. We are living through the first war of globalization.

If people choose to buy Allen Iverson's CDs, that's up to them. It's freedom of speech. It's like buying cigarettes or booze. People may be offended, but if people are going to make him richer by buying his CDs, it must be the world accepts it.

IN THE electric-blue state of Pennsylvania, I often find myself defending my limited support for President Bush. I wouldn't describe myself as a red-blooded conservative, though I have been known to strike an extremely conservative pose on some issues. But recently I have tired of defending a man mocked and criticized by blood-thirsty liberals who refuse to see anything but the worst. Perhaps, in one final attempt, someone might listen. It strikes me as odd that so many were ready to crucify Bush after his first term.

ASUMMER SOMETHING to rave about: The gorgeous arrangement of perennial flowers and ornamental grasses has graced the median of Spring Garden Street for nearly a decade, but this year the color is particularly arresting. The arrangement is part of the "public landscape" program of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's Philadelphia Green, which since 1987 has worked with corporations, government and ordinary citizens to transform the public areas that mark visitors' entrances into the city.

What's a busy mother to do? Monday should be the night you get to catch up on all the shows you DVRed on Sunday night. But the networks aren't giving you much of a chance, particularly if you happen to be a fan of The Voice or Dancing With the Stars , both of which soak up two-hour blocks on Mondays. There are fresh temptations, too, for viewers who like the traditional TV fare of sitcoms and dramas. Hammocked between How I Met Your Mother and 2 Broke Girls , CBS has the peskily charming Partners at 8:30 p.m. Joe (David Krumholtz - Jeff Daniels' psychiatrist on Newsroom )
