In France, they lighted the sky with fireworks for Ellen MacArthur, the youngest sailor and first woman to circumnavigate the world alone. Britain raised Tower Bridge for her triumphant return after she completed the French Vendee Globe solo race, while the press hailed the 24-year-old as a conquering hero in the tradition of Charles Lindbergh and Sir Edmund Hillary. And this was for coming in second. Pity the poor Frenchman who won the toughest race in sailing last month.

The principal of Marshall Fundamental School in Pasadena has declared that all articles written for the school newspaper must be reviewed by him before they can be published. His decision has resulted in charges of censorship by students. The dispute began after publication of an article on the Pledge of Allegiance and another story criticized by Principal Joseph Caldera as being racially insensitive.

The controversy in Pasadena over a move by Marshall Fundamental School Principal Joseph Caldera to impose censorship on the school newspaper should concern journalists and educators as well as parents. As a journalist who grew up in Pasadena and attended its schools, including Marshall 25 years ago, I commend the integrity and courage shown by faculty adviser Mary Ellen MacArthur, student editor Matt Luecke and The Eagle's Eye staff. This country is constantly uneasy with, yet drawn toward the tenets of its foundation: free thought and speech and human equality.

Britain went mad Tuesday for a 5-foot-2, 28-year-old sailor from landlocked Derbyshire who broke the record for fastest solo sail around the world, a journey of 27,354 miles in less than 72 days. She beat the previous record by 32 hours. "It has been an unbelievable journey," Ellen MacArthur said after her 75-foot trimaran, a three-hulled speedster, crossed the finish line in French waters Monday night.

Four-time champion Andre Agassi might sit out the Australian Open, which starts Monday, after injuring his hip in a tuneup tennis event today in Melbourne. Agassi, 34, withdrew from his exhibition match against Andy Roddick when trailing, 5-6, at the Kooyong Classic. The four-time Australian Open winner said he felt tightness in the muscle at the front of his right hip and would have an MRI exam to determine the damage.

A report Friday showing tame consumer inflation, coming amid falling energy prices, raised hopes that the economy may be entering a "soft landing" of moderate growth without recession. If that happens, it could be because of consumers like Ellen MacArthur. She and her husband, David, cut back on running errands in their suburban South Florida community when gasoline prices shot up earlier this year.
