San Jose, California---YOU ARE ACCUSED of a shameful crime. Your accuser is unnamed. The time, place and circumstances of your crime are unspecified. No evidence is presented. You are condemned.This isn't Kafka. At Brown University, a very liberal liberal-arts school in Rhode Island, a ''rape list'' scrawled on the wall of a library women's room names ''men who have sexually assaulted me or a woman I know.''The list, started in October, names 30 men. As soon as janitors scrub the wall clean, someone writes the ''rape list'' on it again.

TURIN, Italy-- --The world's largest bathroom wall knows no limits. What I saw was pure filth. It felt like someone activated the emergency sprinkler system in the middle of a party. Shani Davis, a speed skater from Chicago, won Olympic gold yesterday. Even bigger, he became the first black athlete to win an individual gold medal at the Winter Games - ever. As sad as that sounds, you have to start somewhere, so I walked away from the arena thinking about past athletic pioneers and wondering if any young black children were about to ask their parents for speed skating lessons as they were being tucked into bed. And then I saw the bathroom wall.

City police shot a robbery suspect last night after he apparently tried to shoot his way into a South Baltimore home occupied by a sleeping 2-year-old boy and the toddler's frightened mother and grandmother. The suspect - an unidentified man described as in his 20s - was shot several times as he stood on the rear deck of the house in the 1300 block of Patapsco St. He was reported in stable condition early today at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. "We heard all kinds of noise on the deck, and when I opened the rear door, this man was standing there with a gun in his hand," said the mother, Angella Faimanifo, 35, a waitress at a South Baltimore Italian restaurant.
