ROCKWALL, Texas -- Three key inmates from Fox's Prison Break already are stretching their legs on this seasonably sweltering early afternoon. First they sprint out of the woods; then they outrace a lumbering freight train. Better to be on the wrong side of the tracks than behind bars, says panting Peter Stormare, otherwise known for his sinister use of a wood chipper in Fargo. "We really went a little nutty. When you're an actor, you're like a wild horse. You want to scream, you want to do something.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- As Orioles middle relievers were clobbered repeatedly in the season's opening weeks, a career journeyman became an unexpected source of hope. "Maybe when Todd comes back," became a catchphrase in manager Sam Perlozzo's daily analysis of the club's relief woes. And right-hander Todd Williams has lived up to the billing, pitching 4 2/3 scoreless innings in four appearances since returning from shoulder and calf soreness. "It's getting more comfortable," Williams said.

"List the worst odors you can imagine - cesspool, steel mills, Brut or that green thing that's been at the back of the fridge for six months and is starting to move on its own. None are as bad as this game. They really shouldn't play it." Jerry Greene Orlando Sentinel, on the Ravens-Detroit Lions game "It's zooming out there. It's going up and down, up and down. When you don't have the puck, you're in a lot of trouble." Mike Babcock Detroit Red Wings coach, on the new-look NHL "I feel like I've let our team down, and the school, in this game.

NEW YORK - Sun worshipers often joke that they're junkies when it comes to catching rays, but a new study suggests there might really be something addictive about tanning. The study's Texas-based researchers asked 145 randomly selected beach-goers at Galveston Island to answer questions adapted from two surveys typically used to screen for alcohol and substance dependence. The surveys included such questions as, "Do you try to cut down on the time you spend in the sun, but find yourself still sun tanning?"

WASHINGTON - In our long, hard slog through America's racial confusions, there are lessons to be found deep in the heart of Texas' dilemma over diversity on campus. A "10 percent solution" plan that Texans devised to replace race-based college admissions policies has worked much better for the University of Texas than anyone had a right to expect. Unfortunately, that's the problem. State senators will begin holding committee hearings this month to investigate possible modifications to the plan they approved after a federal court outlawed the use of race in the admissions policies of the state's public universities in 1996.
