Reid is best known for docu- menting black culture in Harlem and Washington, D.C, from the late 1940s until 1979. For Him, 'The World Stood Still' By Diana LaMattina Staff writer olding a stack of yellow Kodak envelopes at a table in the Southside Newsstand in Syracuse, Grady Reid gingerly shifts through photo- graphs he took in Washington, D.C., and Harlem. The photos, mostly in black and white, document black culture from an ordinary man's perspective. A detailed description of the event or person is scrawled on the back of most of the 11-by- 14-inch photos in the precise pen- manship of an artist. T don't know if a picture is worth a thousand said Reid, 83. "It's more that the world stood still to show that exact moment and expression." A comrade first gave Reid a camera as he served in the Pacific Theater during World War II. Those early photo- graphs of Reid's have been lost.

A senior commander of a Pal- estinian militant group, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Lebanese guerrilla group Hezbollah, which is funded by Iran and has been trying to dis- rupt the cease-fire, hired a Pales- tinian from the northern West j Bank to cany out the bombing.

Israeli officials indicated that the attack would not derail the tentative peace efforts. But the bombing put new pressure on Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to take action against mil- itants who have not accepted the cease-fire he worked out with Is- raeli Prime Minister Ariel Sha- ron at a summit that was careful- ly orchestrated with the help of the United States, Egypt and Oilier rvicu.i Early today, Abbas pledged to track down those responsible for the bombing, the first suicide at- tack in Israel since a bomber killed two people in a Tel Aviv market on Nov. 1. ''The Palestinian Authority will not stand silent in the face of this act of sabotage. We will follow and track down those re- sponsible and they will be pun- ished accordingly." Abbas said in a statement after an emergen- cy meeting with his security chiefs.

The pope was breath- ing on his own after an emergency tracheostomy Thursday. 10-12 hours after surgery was possible but not necessarily ad- "tranquil" night of rest follow- ing a 30-minute tracheostomy Thursday evening. Navarro-Valls said the 84-year-old pontiff, who also suffers from Parkinson's disease, showed a good appetite Friday morning and even ate a breakfast of 10 cookies, yogurt and coffee "Upon the advice of his doc- tors, the pope must not speak for several days, so as to favor the recovery of the functions of the Navarro-Valls told a room full of reporters who mobi- lized when the pope, unable to breathe, was rushed to Rome's Gemelli Polyclinic hospital on lar condition earlier this month. If the Polish-bom pope lost term, it would raise questions about whether he could continue to fulfill his mission as spiritual leader of the world's 1 billion Roman Catholics.

By Peter Lyman Washington bureau For more than two centuries, members of Congress came back to their dis- tricts during Washington recesses and met with con- stituents. They discussed a broad range of issues, and the world at large iOOk llllit itOvc. That was before cyberspace. In the digital age, a lawmaker's casual remark in a tiny forum can become a national story within hours. Just ask Maurice Hinchey. The Democratic congressman, whose district stretches from the Hudson River to Tompkins Coumv. was in Ithaca a week i ago, people at a town hall meeting. The topic was President Bush's proposals to reform Social Secu- rity. During a question-and-answer period at the meeting's end, Hin- chey's impromptu comments on an unrelated matter ignited a firestorm of attacks by squads of angry cyber commandos. Hinchey, D-Saugerties, ex- pressed the theory that Dan Rather and CBS News were vic- tims of a White House plot, suckered into citing bogus docu- ments in a scheme to damage the network's credibility and deflect criticism from Bush during the presidential campaign.

Hinchey suggested Bush polit- ical strategist Karl Rove hatched a scheme to plant the documents, I
