WADA says it “read with interest media reports suggesting a television 'confession' made by Lance Armstrong” to Oprah Winfrey in an interview that will be televised on Thursday. Armstrong reportedly hopes to return to competition in recognized triathlon events.

Is the debate on affirmative action versus race-blind policies mainly about principle, or mostly about preserving narrow group interests? We are beginning to find out in California. A bill passed by the state Senate and pending in the Assembly would put a constitutional amendment on the ballot that would overturn portions of Proposition 209 to exempt public college and university admissions from the ban on racial, ethnic and gender preferences. There are principled reasons to support as well as to oppose affirmative action in higher education.

If the name “Ron Unz” is ringing bells in your brain, it may be because of his initiative to raise California's minimum wage to $12 an hour. But when I interviewed him for my “Patt Morrison Asks” column, the subject of another initiative of his crafting came up too: Proposition 227, which 16 years ago effectively ended bilingual education as it was practiced in California, replacing it with English immersion. Unz told me he has been “very pleased with the results” of 227, and that within a few years of its passing (by nearly 2 to 1)

DURHAM, N.C. - - Sgt. Maj. Richard Erickson was serving overseas with U.S. special forces when he received a letter from his civilian employer, the U.S. Postal Service. In the 2000 notice, the agency informed him that he was being fired from his job as a postal clerk in Florida for taking too much time off to serve with the National Guard. "I thought it was a joke," Erickson said this week from Ft. Bragg, N.C., where he serves with the Army's Special Operations Command. But when he called the Postal Service, he was told that he had been terminated for taking "excessive military leave.

Re "Pork chopped," editorial, Dec. 13 The effort by Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) and Rep. David R. Obey (D-Wis.) to restrict the proliferation of "earmarks" is a welcomed relief from fiscal irresponsibility. Now, how about the reinstatement of the regulation of the Clinton years that prevented members of Congress from adding costs to the budget unless it was shown where the supporting funds were to come from, i.e., either by increased taxes or program reductions. President Bush allowed the rule to sunset; otherwise he would have had to reduce expenditures or raise taxes to go to war in Iraq.

Saying he had "repented," school board member Ernest Shaw took other members by surprise last week when he cast the crucial third vote needed to rehire former Supt. Rex Fortune, whom he had voted to fire six weeks ago. At a negotiating meeting two days before the Monday vote, Shaw had said he did not favor rehiring the superintendent unless he met a lengthy list of conditions that included forgoing a two-year contract extension approved by a previous board.

NEW DELHI - In a reversal that surprised many gay activists and flew in the face of changes seen in some other countries recently, India's Supreme Court on Wednesday overturned a lower-court ruling, in effect making homosexuality a crime again. The nation's top court overturned a 2009 Delhi High Court decision that decriminalized homosexual sex between consenting adults. In Wednesday's ruling, the top court argued that the lower court had overstepped its mandate and had no right to augment the law. “It is up to parliament to legislate on this issue," said Justice G.S. Singhvi, who headed the two-judge Supreme Court bench.

A recent ruling by the Constitutional Court in the Dominican Republic to strip away the citizenship of several generations of Dominicans leaves no doubt that the nation has not left its history of abuse and racism behind. According to the decision, Dominicans born after 1929 to parents who are not of Dominican ancestry are to have their citizenship revoked. The ruling affects an estimated 250,000 Dominican people of Haitian descent, including many who have had no personal connection with Haiti for several generations.

Oklahoma State Coach Mike Gundy said Monday the school is backing the reinstatement of wide receiver Dez Bryant , less than a week after declaring him ineligible for lying to the NCAA.

Bryant sat out Saturday as No. 16 Oklahoma State won, 36-31, at Texas A&M. Bryant played in Oklahoma State's first three games this season while compliance officials were investigating his meeting with Sanders and another former NFL player, Omar Stoutmire , that Bryant later lied about to the NCAA.

On the day the Angels re-signed Bobby Abreu to a multiyear deal, the future of the Dodgers started to take shape on the eighth floor of the Los Angeles Superior Court building. Slowly. While Jamie McCourt was denied her request to be immediately reinstated as the Dodgers' chief executive in an emergency hearing Thursday, the more important issue of whether she is a co-owner of the storied franchise along with soon-to-be ex-husband Frank McCourt did not become any clearer -- and probably won't be for some time.

The Pac-12 Conference just named Led Zeppelin its iconic rock band of the week. Well, it should have, because what the conference had over the Labor Day holiday was a "Communication Breakdown. " In what could be the first of many issues involving enforcement of the new "targeting" rule, the Pac-12 issued an order to reinstate Cal defensive lineman Chris McCain to this week's game against Portland State. McCain had been ejected from Saturday's loss for targeting Northwestern quarterback Trevor Siemian on a roughing-the-passer penalty.

The judge just threw the book at running back Jeremy Hill. Thankfully for Louisiana State fans, it was the playbook. With the legal system already backlogged and training camp approaching, District Judge Bonnie Jackson ordered Hill to 40 hours of community service for his latest brush with the law. It was a good thing Hill, already on probation, was not recorded on video laughing after he sucker-punched that guy in the bar in April....
