Calls for South Carolina Republican Congressman Joe Wilson to apologize on the House floor for his "You lie!" outburst during the president's recent speech to a joint session of Congress continue. Wilson told the press earlier last week, "I am not going to apologize again." While it seems that President Barack Obama has moved on, House Democrats have not. The resolution of the current Wilson brouhaha, with its attendant civility issues and quite possibly politically driven morality, remains to be seen.

WASHINGTON - Joseph C. Wilson IV is having the time of his life. The former-diplomat-turned-Bush-administration-accuser spent last week ruminating over who might play his wife - the now-famous CIA operative Valerie Plame - when Hollywood comes knocking on the couple's door. "She is really quite amazing," Mr. Wilson told The Washington Post, which described Ms. Plame as a slim, 40-year-old blonde, possessing "the looks of a film star" herself. Somehow, this doesn't sound like a man worried that the leak of his wife's name and identity as a CIA employee by someone high up in the Bush administration might jeopardize her life.

Parity is the byword for area lacrosse this year.The formidable members of the Maryland Scholastic Association Conference play in a world of their own, but who will rule the MSA itself is another matter.At least six of the eight teams have legitimate shots at the title. Yet, only two from each division will make the playoffs.Defending champion Loyola will be tested in Division I by St. Mary's (led by attackman Rob Chomo) and dark horse Gilman. Division II, the strongest overall, shapes up as a race between Boys' Latin (and player of the year candidate, defenseman Stan Ross)
