LOS ANGELES - A federal jury handed down yesterday what legal experts said was the country's first cyberbullying verdict, convicting a Missouri woman of three misdemeanor charges of computer fraud for her involvement in creating a phony account on MySpace to trick a teenager, who later committed suicide. The jury deadlocked on a fourth count of conspiracy against Lori Drew, 49, and U.S. District Judge George Wu declared a mistrial on that charge. While it was unclear how severely Drew will be punished - the jury reduced the charges to misdemeanors from felonies, and no sentencing date was set - the conviction was highly significant, computer fraud experts said, because it was the first time that a federal statute designed to combat computer crimes was used to prosecute what were essentially abuses of a user agreement on a social networking site.

LOVE is in the air. Valentine's Day is here again. It's the season of courtship.At the same time, society's message, like a broken record, is marriage and divorce, marriage and divorce.But what about courtship? It might be far more productive to focus on what happens before people marry -- and eventually divorce.If courtship is supposed to result in the selection of a compatible mate who will last a lifetime, modern courtship is a failure. Today, about one of two marriages ends in divorce in the United States.

While much of the world's attention is focused on conflicts of the Middle East, a growing competition is under way for influence in Africa - another leading source of oil with rising strategic importance. Chinese President Hu Jintao recently completed a 12-day, eight-nation tour of the continent, during which he sought to strengthen economic, political and military ties developed during an aggressive courtship of African leaders over the past decade. Partway through his visit, U.S. officials announced they, too, were taking a heightened interest in Africa, to be reflected in a new military command President Bush said would not only advance peace and security but also promote "development, health, education, democracy and economic growth."

A male and a female osprey whirled in the air above their nest on the Patuxent River, swooping together, then wheeling away. After separate odysseys to Central or South America, the pair had reunited at the nest where they raised their young together last year. They joined dozens of other osprey pairs that return to the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in Lothian around St. Patrick's Day each year. The birds busy themselves sprucing up last year's nests and reigniting the spark with their mates, a naturalist at the sanctuary said.

Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage, by Alice Munro. Alfred A. Knopf. 323 pages. $24. If a good writer zigs where others zag, then Alice Munro is the great writer among good. Her unpredictable short stories deliver astonishingly deep and complex worlds, but rarely by following a linear path. Her new collection, Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage, contains nine such zigzagging wonders. It is not merely twists and turns in plot that make a Munro story so surprising, though the Canadian writer is obviously a master of both structure and plot.

Times have changed. Today, if a guy wants to demonstrate his love, he might cook a nice dinner and wash the dishes afterward. Back in medieval times, he would have knocked another guy off his horse in a jousting tournament.As we learn from the Walters Art Gallery's show "Medieval Games of Love and War," there was a closer relationship between love and war back then than there is today.The upper class was a warrior class, and in times of peace, activities like hunting and jousting kept the nobility in practice for war. These activities in turn got mixed up with courtship -- you jousted to win the favor of a lady, or you and the lady went out hawking together.

North Carolina Sen. Elizabeth Dole and her staff at the candidate-recruiting National Republican Senatorial Committee have met with Michael S. Steele three times, attempting to persuade him to enter the race for U.S. Senate. Steele also has been contacted by Karl Rove, the master strategist credited with engineering President Bush's election wins. "No stone has gone unturned," Dole said last week. "I am a huge Michael Steele fan." National Republicans are waging an aggressive campaign to launch Maryland's lieutenant governor into the race to replace retiring Democratic incumbent Paul S. Sarbanes, as party leaders sense their best chance in decades of gaining a Senate seat in the traditionally Democratic state.

Nevertheless, Steele's delegation met with airline officials to discuss expanding the carrier's relationship with Maryland.
