KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Halloween may have been last week, but that didn't stop Knoxville College's Tony Moore from coming back to haunt Morgan State.Moore caught 11 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Bulldogs to a 32-28 homecoming win over the Bears.Seeing Moore catch the ball was a familiar sight to Morgan State (2-7). Last year, he was the Bears' third-leading receiver with 56 catches and almost 1,000 yards. What he did last year was of little consolation to Morgan State coach Ricky Diggs.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.-- --The point guard yells "outlet!" and sprints up court. Her head coach, Pat Summitt, shouts, "Go! Go!" as Shannon Bobbitt blows by. At the other end, there are a few sharp passes, criss-crossing the court like laser beams in a security system. "Nice! Nice!" Summitt yells. "That's it!" Candace Parker finally flips the ball to the wing. "Shoot," she says softly, and Angie Bjorklund's shot is all net. "Yeah!" Parker says, high-fiving the smiling freshman. You can tell it's March in the state of Tennessee.

WASHINGTON -- The fallacy of hate crime laws - the prosecution of which requires a degree of mind-reading not yet available to most earthlings - has been cast into stark relief the past few weeks after reports of an interracial rape-murder that has bestirred white supremacists and led to death threats against an African-American columnist. The spark was the brutal rape-murder of a young white couple, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, who were carjacked in January in Knoxville, Tenn.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- What happened to Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, a young Knoxville couple out on an ordinary Saturday night date, was undeniably brutal. They were carjacked, kidnapped, raped and finally killed in January. But whether the attack was a racial hate crime worthy of national media attention is another question, one that has now ignited a fierce dispute over the definition of hate crimes and how the news media choose to cover America's most disturbing interracial attacks.

It always amazes me when white people put on the victim hat. As in victim of racial oppression. By any measure - health, education, economics, employment - white Americans enjoy a superior standard of living. If that's racial oppression, sign me up. But still, one occasionally hears mewling noises from that subset of my white countrymen who feel put upon by big, bad racial minorities. This is one of those times. And Knoxville, Tenn., has become the capital city of that lunatic fringe. It seems that in January, a young white couple, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, were victims of a brutal crime.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Averting office massacres like the one that left seven workers dead in Massachusetts this week may be a matter of screening job candidates for their aggression potential, say two researchers who have developed such a test. "This guy is exactly who our test was designed to identify," said Michael McIntyre, an industrial psychologist at the University of Tennessee. "I think all the indicators were there," said Larry James, also a professor at the school's business school who co-authored the test.

Jackass Number Two is crude, disgusting, lowbrow comedy, a relentlessly (and proudly) scatological ode to the kind of high jinks that seem screamingly funny in direct proportion to the amount of liquor one has imbibed. The movie is 95 minutes of pranks and stunts, a bunch of guys doing dangerous stuff (riding in jet-propelled shopping carts), disgusting stuff (most of which I couldn't describe without getting fired), outrageous stuff (a guy persuades his obese father to get out of bed in the middle of the night and let another obese guy cuddle up to his unsuspecting mother)
