SO HOW was the prom?" my sister asked.Junior prom, I reminded her. More of a training prom than the real thing, for my son and his friend. After Saturday, I am convinced they need the practice.My initial concern grew as the boys started dressing.A tux for one, new suit for the other, and the arguments over the shower, the ironing board and the sock set the tone for the evening."Socks? They argued over socks?" she noted.Not socks -- sock. Forty-five minutes before they were to pick up their dates, it was learned that there were three available black dress socks and four feet.

The little girl in pigtails is sitting on her bed, talking about the day she killed her friend during a fight on a Baltimore street corner. "From what I remember, I stabbed her once," 14-year-old Shanae says matter-of-factly, her big brown eyes glancing up at the camera. "But from the autopsy reports, I stabbed her three times." This scene, from the opening of the documentary Girlhood, is how viewers first meet Shanae, the baby-faced Baltimore girl locked up for murder at age 12. A counselor has told Shanae that she seemed "quite happy" for a person who'd committed such a serious crime.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - David Leadbetter saw Ty Tryon swing a golf club for the first time 10 years ago. When the videotape arrived in the mail, the world-renowned golf teacher figured it was sent by another pushy parent who thought his kid was going to be the next Tiger Woods. Leadbetter watched it anyway. "He was hitting some bunker shots, and he had all the mannerisms of a tour player, the way he shuffled his feet in the sand and twiddled the club," Leadbetter recalled earlier this week.

Here, in the roll-out bleachers that are "Warrior Country," scores of somber teen-agers gathered yesterday to reflect upon the life and death of one of their own.They hung their heads, then smiled. They gazed mournfully into the distance, then laughed. Finally, they clapped their hands -- a round of applause for the friend with the unforgettable smile.They came together to remember Hae Min Lee, 18, a senior whose body was found Feb. 9 in a shallow grave in Leakin Park.
