Oscar De La Hoya never said it would be easy. He simply said he would do it. And Saturday morning, he did. He won a gold medal for his mother, who, he later said, saw it all. And during the medal ceremony, he almost cried, but didn't. The graceful, hard-punching lightweight from the Brooklyn Gym in Boyle Heights managed to pull his exhausted, emotionally spent East Los Angeles cheering section along one more bumpy Olympian road of peaks and valleys Saturday morning.

Former President Pervez Musharraf was charged today with ordering the illegal detention of judges during Pakistan's 2007 political crisis and faces arrest if he returns from exile. The charge is the latest legal setback for the former military dictator, who now lives in London. If convicted, Musharraf could face up to three years in prison. He could post bail if he returns, but analysts doubt he would come back to face the charges. Earlier this month, Pakistan's Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, concluded that Musharraf had violated the constitution in 2007 when he imposed a national state of emergency and purged the country's courts of 60 judges, including Chaudhry.

Something is wrong with the system when a bout is decided by the reflexes of the judges instead of those of the fighters. . . . On each of the five officials' printouts, Eric Griffin of the United States landed more punches than Rafael Lozano of Spain in their 106-pound bout Saturday. Yet Lozano won, 6-5. Imagine, only 13 punches landing in three rounds.

For years, this nation's top judge has been a thorn in the side of President Pervez Musharraf. But just how big a thorn did not become apparent until the leader tried to sack the independent-minded jurist last week. On Friday, riot police used tear gas and batons on hundreds of demonstrators who had gathered in downtown Islamabad to protest the suspension of Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry.
