WBAL-TV (Channel 11) has hired a new anchorwoman and shuffled its first-string lineup in a way that makes her almost as visible at the 11 o'clock anchor desk as Rod Daniels and Pat Minarcin. Carolyn McEnrue, 30, joined Channel 11 in September and is now anchoring the station's top newscast three nights a week -- Friday, Saturday and Sunday. (She also serves as a reporter on her non-anchor work days.)The Friday broadcast makes her more than a new weekend anchor. The pairing of her and Daniels on an expanded Sunday newscast is a dramatic change from the way local television news has traditionally been presented in Baltimore.

WASHINGTON -- A University of Texas law professor has come under heavy fire from black and Latino legislators for making statements that give aid and comfort to racists. Unfortunately, his critics are making statements that risk doing the same thing.Professor Lino Graglia's remarks came in a news conference for an organization that supports the 1996 federal court decision that stopped Texas colleges from considering race in student admissions.Since then, black and Hispanic enrollment at the University of Texas Law School has plummeted from the highest in the nation to one of the lowest.

YOU COULD CALL Lino Graglia a loose cannon. Or you could call him a man dedicated to saying what he believes to be the truth. But if his critics get their way, you'll be calling him fired.For those of you who haven't heard of Graglia, some background is in order. He is a University of Texas Law School professor who had the effrontery to say that blacks and Mexican-Americans couldn't compete with whites in higher education. Pulling no punches, Graglia went on to say that blacks and Mexican-Americans "have a culture that seems not to encourage achievement."

The suit, filed Sept. 11 at the federal District Court in Dallas, asks the court to prevent Black & Decker from selling its 36-volt line with the batteries in question.
