The chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, saying he needed time to "reflect" on the controversy created by his cancellation of a grant for an AIDS art show here, implied Wednesday that the federal arts agency may reconsider its position. But John E. Frohnmayer declined to say whether the process of reflection might lead to restoration of part or all of a $10,000 grant approved last July for the show, which includes work by 23 artists.

The authorized biography of former prisoner-of-war Pfc. Jessica Lynch says she was raped by her Iraqi captors, a family spokesman said Thursday. "The book does cover the subject," spokesman Stephen Goodwin told the Associated Press. "It's a very difficult subject." The book -- "I Am a Soldier, Too: The Jessica Lynch Story" -- is being released by Knopf publishing on Tuesday, Veterans Day. Reporter Rick Bragg, who wrote the book, tells Lynch's story.

An Iraqi lawyer who helped U.S. forces in the rescue of Jessica Lynch toured the soldier's hometown of Palestine and visited a garden planted in his honor. "I will not forget. It will stay with me, in my mind, in my heart," said Mohammed al-Rehaief as he helped plant a ceremonial yellow mum. But al-Rehaief was unable to meet with Lynch during a four-day tour of the state.

Some might call it roughing. We call it a clean hit. The NHL's Dallas Stars have put up a billboard near the American Airlines Center they share with the NBA's Dallas Mavericks. It reads: "The only thing our refs shave is the ice." NBA Commissioner David Stern, dealing with the fallout of Tim Donaghy's guilty plea for betting on games he officiated, had no comment. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who doesn't mind seeing Stern squirm a little, didn't bristle at the Stars' swipe.

Baseball Chris Roberts' single in the 15th inning drove in Jeff Hammonds with the winning run as the United States beat the Dominican Republic, 2-1, to earn the bronze medal.

In the U.S. team's victory, Roberts' one-out hit ended a nine-at-bat slump, including six at-bats Saturday.

By now, everybody's heard that Colin Farrell's suing his former girlfriend, Playboy Playmate Nicole Narain, over a steamy 15-minute sex video they made together over two years ago. But who's this David Hans Schmidt, who was named in last week's lawsuit along with her? If you don't know, it probably means you are (a) not an exhibitionistic celebrity or (b) not in possession of sexy images of one.
