Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your vocabulary. This week's word:  SPECIOUS You probably know Thomas Henry Huxley's remark, "Science is organized common sense where many a beautiful theory was killed by an ugly fact,” a sad reflection that what looks attractive to us may prove to be of little or no value.

By defeating visiting Virginia Military Institute on Saturday, Navy not only would take the first step toward what it hopes will become the program's first winning season since 1997 and only its third in 21 years. The Midshipmen also would learn what it's like to savor a victory at home. No one on Navy's current roster has. The last time the Midshipmen prevailed at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium was Nov. 13, 1999, when Tulane went down, 45-21. Since then, Navy has lost 14 consecutive games in Annapolis and has been outscored 533-222 during the slide.
