Thirty-seven stabs. Thirty-seven cuts by a knife. Twice to his throat. Six times to his spine. Seven times to his shoulder. A slice to his abdomen that ripped him open like a fish. Kevin Ramsby lay on the floor of his Highland Park, Mich., home, bleeding out, waiting to die. It was 3 a.m., no one else was home, he'd been awakened by the sound of an intruder and had stumbled downstairs, his bulky frame protected only by a tennis racket he had grabbed. The intruder had a knife.

It's been more than a decade since my last panic attacks about freshman gym class. But mid-way through an early episode of "American High," I suddenly felt it again. Right there on my television screen was the exact gymnasium - complete with the same blue tumbling mats - where a wrestling coach named "Wiz" spent a semester terrorizing me and the rest of my uncoordinated freshman PE classmates. Those memories, particularly the ones of being hollered at while I futilely tried to perform handstands and cartwheels, were something I thought I had repressed long ago. But the two-month series beginning tonight on Fox is bringing back a flood of high school memories for me, for this series wasn't just taped at any high school.

CHICAGO - Sam and Joe Eichner, 11-year-old twins, shy away from talking to girls on the telephone, let alone in person. But when the Highland Park, Ill., boys access the instant messenger on their computer, nothing stops them from communicating with their peers of the opposite sex. "I'd rather talk to them through instant messaging," said Sam, noting that he uses the telephone only to invite friends to his house. "It's easier to talk to someone in words than face to face." The brothers are part of a new generation of Americans, a digital elite that is shifting away from traditional tools of communication such as the telephone.
