On Friday he is to be enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, a greying icon of a long-gone professional league that introduced the tri-colored ball and the 3-point shot. That's where Bob "Slick" Leonard won acclaim. Three times in the early 1970s, Leonard coached the Indiana Pacers to championships in the American Basketball Association before it merged with the NBA in 1976. But while his induction is expected to embrace his Hoosier roots and ABA genius, Leonard really honed his skills as the Bullets' coach in 1963-64.

So let me get this straight, President Obama, the liberals and/or Democrats are against water-boarding, but not against shooting bullets into the head of, and murdering, an unarmed Osama bin Laden while his children were in his house. Just think what would of been accomplished if we instead had taken bin Laden in handcuffs away to the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, water-boarded him and shot him full of truth serum. After we got all the great information, we could have a military tribunal find him guilty and then execute him. Now that would have been justice and Americans would have been proud instead of feeling the shame brought against us by our kill-happy president.

Riverdale High's red-headed heart throb, Archie Andrews, died this week. He took a bullet for his gay best friend, who was speaking out against gun violence. Betty and Veronica were there in the last frames of the comic book to cradle him in death. No bobby socks and soda shops in this issue, that's for sure. The teens we all wanted to be before we were old enough to be teens are dealing with grown-up issues and the tragedy of death. Ugh. It's enough to make you wish you were 10 again, reading a brand-new edition of your favorite comic book and sipping a Coke out of a bottle on a hot summer afternoon.

Brown was suspended last year, and university officials tied the move to an incident in which he allegedly shoved a Baltimore police officer who visited the College Park campus as part of a shooting investigation. But Brown's connection to crimes under investigation turned out to be more extensive.
