When Nevada Las Vegas and Arizona play Saturday in a nationally televised game at Tucson, there will be more at stake than early-season rankings. The public stance of Jerry Tarkanian, coach of the No. 9-ranked Rebels, and Lute Olson, coach of the No. 10 Wildcats, is that this is a battle for best in the West, 1988-89 version. But the differences between these coaches are as pronounced as the contrast between Olson's carefully barbered white hair and Tarkanian's gleaming pate.

In 2005, a Republican state senator named Jim Holt introduced a bill to deny public benefits to Arkansas' soaring population of illegal immigrants. Holt, a Southern Baptist minister, figured it was a rock-solid conservative idea -- a matter, he said, "of right and wrong." Arkansas' governor at the time was also a professed conservative, and also a Southern Baptist minister. But Mike Huckabee had only scorn for his fellow Republican's proposal.

Three young men hired by a pregnant woman's boyfriend kicked her in the belly and killed the baby, prosecutors said Thursday as they brought murder charges in the first test of Arkansas' new Fetal Protection Law. The law, passed this year, makes it a crime to injure a fetus more than 12 weeks old. It allows exceptions for abortions. Without the law, prosecutors would have had to limit the charges to crimes against the pregnant woman, who was badly beaten.
