It was January 1998, years removed from when Pamela and twin sister Paula helped USC win the 1983 and '84 national championships in women's basketball. Her private block in the civil section was across the hallway from a conglomeration of alleged criminal offenders.

The scene surprised three men on the other side of the basketball court, who stopped watching a pickup game and stared as Leslie, 6-5, and Imani, 6-7, began doing drills at a Los Angeles health club. Shooting came first. Imani shuffled her feet as if she were running in place, caught the basketball and fired off a shot as quickly as she could.

The best man from Magic Johnson's wedding took exception Monday to a published characterization of the former Laker basketball star as a "womanizer" whose lifestyle led to Johnson's contraction of a life-threatening virus.

She is one of eight African American female pilots for the airline, and the first and only African American female flight captain for a major passenger airline. "I wasn't trying to be the 'first' anything," Ward said.

Sometimes when she is talking, her infant twins are crying and one of her three nephews, whom she has raised and considers sons, needs help with his homework or needs to be taken to or picked up from the tutor and, meanwhile, her husband, Brian Dyke, has made dinner and there are dishes to do.
