LONDON - A Muslim orphan who won a two-year legal battle over a school dress code that prevented her from wearing a head-to-toe garment says she has struck a blow against "prejudice and bigotry." In an interview yesterday in the Guardian newspaper a day after her court victory, 16-year-old Shabina Begum said she hoped her case had given "hope and strength to other Muslim women. ... I'm happy that I did this." But some critics fear that permitting more conservative Islamic dress in British schools could put pressure on other Muslim girls to wear the same clothing or risk being branded as not devout.

From her home life to her snack habits to her age-appropriate attitude, much has been made about Kimmie Meissner's utter normalcy. And yesterday, in choosing a costume for her first Olympic performance in Turin, the fresh-faced figure skater again proved herself to be just a regular teenager from Bel Air - sans fringes, feathers or skate-fashion faux pas. Thank goodness. The 16-year-old took to the ice for the women's short program in a tame and only somewhat-shiny black number. Her cut-off sleeves were rimmed in tiny rhinestones.

COLLEGE PARK - -It seems long ago that Maryland quarterback Chris Turner appeared at the Atlantic Coast Conference's preseason media conference and said of the Terrapins: "We're easily a 10-win team." It was late July, the weather was warm and muggy, and Turner and other top ACC players had mixed media interviews with a round of golf at a resort in Greensboro, N.C. "We're not here to just win eight games and go to an average bowl," the senior quarterback had said. Twelve weeks later, Turner's Terrapins are 2-5 (1-2 ACC)

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Should the Orioles follow through on a tentative plan to become younger, faster and more financially flexible, they will not exclude their primary American League East rivals, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, as potential matches, said vice president of baseball operations Syd Thrift. "Of course you talk about it," said Thrift, who last Thursday advocated embracing such a movement. "But that's not the most important thing in the world.

Tattoo parlors across Manhattan have seen a jump in customers asking for American flags, crying eagles and the New York skyline as it was before the terrorist attacks.
