Sprint Nextel Corp. is being sued for $300 million by New York Atty. Gen. Eric T. Schneiderman, who is accusing the wireless carrier of tax fraud. Schneiderman called Thursday's suit - which alleges, based on a whistle-blower's tip, that Sprint underpaid sales tax on some of its wireless plans for the last seven years - a “groundbreaking” filing. The complaint alleges that Sprint's debt to New York is growing by $210,000 a week. Schneiderman claims the company already owes more than $100 million.

Here's the face of the National League Championship Series: New York Mets starter Oliver Perez threw 5 2/3 innings Sunday night, was rocked for three home runs and nine hits, and was practically mobbed by appreciative teammates when he went to the dugout for the last time.

So far during this week of spring fashion shows, there is just one item worth talking about: the dress. New York designers have all rediscovered it at once--possibly because it is the one garment most likely to sell well. For the past several years, designers have put their more creative energies into suits. Now, suddenly, dresses are a cause. Most often they fit close to the body and are worn with a matching coat or jacket for an ensemble look.
