It's hard to believe Ellis Williams went virtually unnoticed for two weeks when he transferred to Villa Park High School as a sophomore. Williams arrived in Villa Park only 10 days before the start of school. He planned on playing sports and asked sophomore Coach Russ Murphy, "Where do I sign up to play football?" Murphy took one look at Williams, a strapping 6-foot-2, 180-pound 16-year-old, and said, "Son, I'll take care of everything for you." Murphy omitted only one minor detail.

THERE'S rarely anything typical about Warren Ellis' vision of the world. He is best known for the graphic "Transmetropolitan" series, which featured journalist Spider Jerusalem -- a one-man wrecking crew of addictions, destructive tendencies and mordant philosophy. Ellis owes a great debt to the late Hunter S. Thompson, both for his writing style and the substance of his worlds, and yet has always managed to remain unique.

In the last 15 years, the press has become almost as likely to be the subject of news as the maker of news. The Washington Post demolishes the Nixon presidency. The Miami Herald derails the Gary Hart campaign. Dan Rather and George Bush fight. Time and Warner merge. Sam Donaldson jumps on Ronald Reagan. Diane Sawyer jumps from CBS to ABC. Public interest in the press--the "media"--is not always benign. Many readers, viewers, voters, citizens are downright hostile toward the press.

So much for flashy starts. On the first play of the Division III playoff game Friday night between Esperanza and Villa Park High Schools, Esperanza's Jarod Smith caught a 68-yard bomb from quarterback Keith McDonald over the top of the Villa Park defense for a touchdown. From there, though, the game belonged to Villa Park.

Adam Garcia is an El Modena tailback with some swift moves. Friday night, he set out to prove it against Villa Park in the Century League opener for both teams. Villa Park probably wished he hadn't showed up at all. Garcia ran for 130 yards in 26 carries and scored three touchdowns--one on a pass reception-- to lead El Modena (3-3) to a 38-23 victory over defending-league co-champion Villa Park (3-3) in front of 3,000 at El Modena High School.
