Cosby Speaks to Slain Son's Peers: Bill Cosby mixed his trademark wit with tough talk about the importance of teachers in an address to graduates of the Columbia University teaching program where his slain son had studied. Cosby mentioned his son, Ennis, only at the very end of his 30-minute speech Tuesday, saying: "I hesitate to talk about Ennis at this time. . . . Even today, if Ennis were alive, I would see Ennis in your faces. If Ennis were alive, I would see you as teachers for our children." Ennis William Cosby, 27, was a doctoral student at Teachers College at Columbia University when he was gunned down Jan. 16, 1997, after pulling off the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles to change a flat tire. Mikhail Markhasev, 19, is scheduled to stand trial for the killing in July. Police said the motive appeared to be robbery.
