COLUMBUS, Ohio - Tim Smith's layup bounced off the rim, but teammate James Anthony made sure East Tennessee State still wasn't done. Anthony's put-back off his rebound, too, bounced off the rim, but teammate Zakee Wadood again kept the Buccaneers alive. It wasn't until Wadood's subsequent put-back bounced off the rim and into the hands of Cincinnati forward Jason Maxiell that East Tennessee State looked, finally, to be finished. But even as the seconds were winding down, it was impossible to count out the Buccaneers.

To my disgust, the fax machine began humming early in the morning, spewing out terrible limericks about the Bobbitts.Being a highly sensitive and politically correct person, my conscience tells me to run them through the paper shredder.But I suppose they can be of some value to psychologists, sociologists and others who study the workings of the sadistic mind.So I will stifle my better instincts and pass them along as a service to scholars.One of the first to arrive was the work of Chicagoan Paul Stroili:When drinking in full regaliaSometimes your memory will fail ya'But John B. woke up thinkingI really must have been drinkingI have misplaced my genitalia.

For Virginia Circuit Judge LeRoy F. Millette Jr., the unblinking attention of the nation's media and legions of curious onlookers that will accompany the first trial in last fall's sniper shootings are nothing new. A decade ago, just a month into his current job, Millette presided over half of the infamous domestic assault case involving Lorena and John Wayne Bobbitt. The Bobbitt case offered a firsthand lesson in how extraordinary public interest can transform the often little-noticed daily work of the bench, and Millette took careful note.

MANASSAS, Va. -- The radio gag show went on the air outside the courthouse before dawn, and with the sunrise came peddlers of T-shirts and boxer shorts, then reporters and video cameramen by the score. The story began unfolding once more, and all the words and pictures went out from 18 satellite trucks in the parking lot to the nation and the world:Lorena L. Bobbitt, a 24-year-old manicurist, sliced off her husband, John Wayne Bobbitt's penis before dawn June 23.The petite, dark-haired woman with the big, brown eyes sat for hours in court yesterday showing no emotion, moving barely TC muscle as the state began her trial on a charge of malicious wounding.

This is a defense of Ann Kennett-Charles, editor and publisher of a small daily newspaper, the Parsons Sun, in Parsons, Kan.Ms. Kennett-Charles has been accused of something editors dread: censorship.As she says: "I'm getting flak from all kinds of people. People think I'm censoring the news."She says she has been berated by journalism students and even civic leaders in her city of about 12,000.The fuss began a week ago when she learned that a wave of excitement seemed to be sweeping over her employees.

WASHINGTON -- In a few weeks she will have to say the word again. She may, she figures, already have said it more times than any other broadcast journalist in America.And she is tired of it.Especially since she keeps picking up newspapers and magazines and reading snotty columns by men saying how women reporters like to say that word.What word?Let me give you a hint: The broadcast journalist I am talking about is Joan Gartlan of WUSA-TV in Washington, and she covered both the John and Lorena Bobbitt trials.

MANASSAS, Va. -- John Wayne Bobbitt, the self-described ordinary ex-Marine who was thrust into national prominence when his wife sliced off his penis, was acquitted yesterday on the charge that he provoked the attack by raping her.The jury of nine women and three men spent barely four hours deliberating before finding Mr. Bobbitt, 26, innocent of a charge of sexually assaulting his wife, Lorena. She had testified that he attacked her on an early June morning. He has variously said that they had consensual sex and that he does not remember if there was sex.There is no disagreement about what followed.

MANASSAS, Va. -- That a young manicurist grabbed a filet knife on her kitchen counter and sliced off her husband's penis was shocking enough. But when she fled with organ in hand, then tossed it from her car at an intersection -- where it was rescued by the fire department -- she turned an act of passion into a national sensation.Lorena Bobbitt's 8-inch knife, with its bloodstained blade, and a photograph of John Wayne Bobbitt's penis on ice in a Ziploc bag will be submitted as evidence when back-to-back jury trials begin this week against John Bobbitt, a boyish ex-Marine, and his wife.

CUMBERLAND -- Prosecutors rested their case yesterday in the trial of John A. Miller IV after presenting testimony designed to show that Miller committed a sex offense against a Carroll County girl before killing her. A man who said he was a former cellmate of Miller at the Baltimore County Detention Center testified that Miller said he sexually assaulted the girl. "He tried to seduce her, she said no, and he threw her on the bed, smacked her and sexually assaulted her," said Clarence Bobbitt, recounting what he said was Miller's description of the events leading to the death of Shen Poehlman, 17. "He said, `I killed that girl.

WASHINGTON -- There is no part of John Wayne Bobbitt that I care to see, especially the part that made famous his shabby little life, so I will not be going to the George Washington University this evening.There, the Program Board, made up of eight male and seven female students, has voted unanimously to present "John Wayne Bobbitt Uncut," a hard-core porn flick in which Bobbitt appears nude and has highly visible sex with several nude women.The Program Board, which is funded by the university, will show the movie free to all GW students who can prove they are over 18.(I was told the press can also see it, but I have decided to decline.

No excuse for a feminist double standardColumnist Anna Quindlen ("Same old math," Oct. 25), letter writer Olivia Morris ("Unfaithfulness: A capital crime?" Oct. 21) and other bleeding-heart feminists don't like Judge Robert Cahill's sentencing Kenneth Peacock to "only" 18 months in jail for killing his wife after he found her in bed with another man.Isn't it funny that these same crybabies offered nocondemnation for the vicious act of mutilation Lorena Bobbitt performed on her husband?In fact, the only thing the feminists complained about was that Ms. Bobbitt had to serve a whole month for her crime.

AFTER the prayers of thanks at dinner, the agenda turned to the Bobbitts. Our group was equally divided along gender lines. The women felt that Mrs. Bobbitt's actions were politically correct. The men thought that she might have found a less painful solution.Mary Patterson declared, "Mrs. Bobbitt was sending her husband a message, and that's essential in a relationship. But unfortunately, John was watching football."It wasn't what Mary said that bothered the men at the table, it was the way she was cutting her steak as she said it.Chuck McDermott laughed nervously, "Mary, the beef is already dead.

The conclusion of two long, expensive trials is that neither Bobbitt is guilty of anything and government ought not concern itself with what happens in the bedrooms of America.You can tell Bobby Inman is some kind of nut because he was comfortable with Bill's presidency, and no credible candidate for Sec'y of Defense is.FEMA is getting the checks to Los Angeles in record time. The federal government works better when Washington is closed.Every candidate for every office will run against crime in this year's elections.

Washington. -- Is there no argument too bizarre for William L. Kunstler to use in defense of a desperate client? Now he claims it was ''black rage'' that drove Colin Ferguson to kill six and wound 19 people on a Long Island Railroad commuter train.After taking over Mr. Ferguson's defense, the famous civil-rights lawyer told reporters his client belonged in a mental institution, not prison, because he was driven insane by racism and discrimination. ''Black rage was the catalyst for the insanity,'' says Mr. Kunstler.
