Robert Davis, a retired sixth-grade teacher at New Orleans' McDonogh Elementary School, had just finished a free meal of Salisbury steak, mixed vegetables and blueberry pie, served at the Doubletree Hotel here for people made homeless by Hurricane Katrina. It was pleasant last Saturday night, he recalled, so he decided he would take an "evening constitutional" down Bourbon Street. His plan was to pick up a pack of Kool cigarettes and head back to the home of friends he was staying with here.

Moving from starter to reserve seems to have been best for Robert Davis--and the Loyola Marymount men's basketball team. Davis, a senior guard, has averaged a team-high 14.5 points, and 5.3 rebounds, in his four games as the Lions' sixth man. He had 18 points Saturday in a two-point loss to Nevada Las Vegas, Loyola Marymount's first defeat with Davis coming off the bench. Lion Coach Steve Aggers said Davis has flourished in a reserve role because he maintained a good attitude.

Golding is blocked by the city charter from seeking a third term.

I knew that Robert Davi loved horseback riding and motorcycling and had a passion for boxing and kicking back with a cigar. What I didn't know was that the co-star of NBC's "Profiler," an hourlong crime drama on Saturday nights, has a singing voice--opera, no less. During our phone interview, I asked Davi, who's married and has two children, about how he was "discovered." Question: Is it true that you were overheard singing when you were in the eighth grade? Answer: Oh, yeah.
