Nearly halfway into the Roman Catholic Church's millennial Holy Year, the nightmares of its organizers--unwieldy crowds, gridlock, terrorism, the sudden collapse of an overworked pope--have yet to come true. But when a group of prelates sat down in the Vatican last month to watch a three-hour video, they perceived a terrible new menace to the yearlong event: an international gay pride festival scheduled here July 1-9.

Gay activists on Saturday vowed civil disobedience if necessary to ensure that a World Pride festival would be able to march past the ancient Roman Colosseum next month despite orders from the City Council to use a different route. "If we don't get permission, we will form a peaceful human chain as far as the Colosseum on July 8," said Titti De Simone, who heads the Arcilesbica group. Rome's City Council has withdrawn its support for the July 1-9 World Pride festival.

How ironic that in this Jubilee Year 2000, a year of reconciliation, the Catholic Church will be "disappointed and annoyed" at the presence of a planned World (Gay) Pride Festival in Rome (June 3). So much for the Gospel message to "love one another as I have loved you." If the Catholic Church cannot be reconciled with gays and lesbians as brothers and sisters, then it would seem that the church's call for tolerance and unity among all is merely a "clanging gong and a booming cymbal."

Question: When do London and Paris go into off-season fall/winter rates? Stuart Fink Los Angeles Answer: This topic seemed easy at first, but in talking with several travel experts, I learned about exceptions to exceptions to exceptions. To begin: Off-season is generally ("generally" being the operative word) whenever these conditions occur: Kids are in school (that's probably going to be late August-early September to mid-May to late June, unless your kids are on a year-round schedule or you live in some parts of the South)
