The readings at Olive Baptist Church on Sunday morning were from the Old Testament, verses about the voice of the Lord shaking the wilderness and mountains slipping into the sea. Slowly, during a hymn about shelter, people began to cry. When the pastor told them to kneel and pray, their shoulders began to shake, and men and women sobbed as they finally let go of their emotions, three days after Hurricane Ivan struck.

Off in a corner, obscured from view by the European excitement over a single currency and transparent borders, stands a hard little nut, the divided island of Cyprus. Not even Richard Holbrooke, Washington's No. 1 steamroller, has been able to crack it. A head-on approach never will. The salvation of Cyprus, populated by a Greek Cypriot majority and a Turkish minority, lies in the mother capitals, Athens and Ankara. That's where pressure should be applied.

Re "America's broadband blues," July 23 Harold Feld fails to deliver much analytic value. Instead of attacking my New York Times opinion piece as Pollyanna advocacy because he doesn't approve of the facts, Feld should digest the impact that changing circumstances have on Internet policy. Independent research finds that broadband is now available to more than 99% of U.S. homes, and the speed of U.S. broadband networks is improving rapidly: While they were 22nd worldwide in 2009, they're now 8th and rising.

This is the way it should be. A guy's got to be a genius to put together a team, keep the players from jumping school or flunking class, dodge the NCAA snoops, keep the philanthropic alumni in check and survive the 500-team NCAA tournament draw, or whatever number it's up to these days.

The decision may have been tough, fraught with doubts and second thoughts, but in the end Baron Davis did precisely as expected, announcing Wednesday that he will declare himself eligible for the NBA draft. The UCLA sophomore will forgo his final two college seasons--becoming only the fourth Bruin to leave early for the pros--in anticipation of being a lottery pick next month. "The NBA is there . . . it's calling," Davis said. "It's just something I've dreamed about all my life."

Kelly Tripucka, the forgotten member of the Utah Jazz, made his first start of the season last Saturday against the Lakers and scored 21 points, including all five of his three-point attempts. Tripucka, whose woes were detailed in a front-page story in the (Salt Lake City) Deseret News, reportedly was inserted into the starting lineup only after a pregame meeting among owner Larry Miller, General Manager David Checketts and Coach Frank Layden.
