COLUMNS

Conventional Thinking: It was nearing midnight on Friday, Feb. | Right Field by Russ Smith

Coloring: Years ago, Washington Post columnist William Raspberry wrote a series of op-eds on the unfortunate tendency of young black people to taunt their peers who tried to speak with proper diction and get good grades by saying they're "acting white." It's almost a natural, if saddening, reaction in the dog-eat-dog, status-driven world that is high school, and sadder still that young minority kids have to fall into the same prejudices that tormented their ancestors, who had to deal with the stigma attached to those with darker skins, since the days of "house" and "field" slaves. A half-century after the big gains of the civil-rights movement, you would think that we might have moved past much of that in the so-called enlightened Eastern seaboard. | Political Animal by Brian Morton

Owner of a Restless Leg: Do you have Restless Leg Syndrome? Did you know about that, the Syndrome of the Restless Leg? If it wasn't for my Teevee, I wouldn't know I even had the Syndrome of Leg Restlessness. | Mr. Wrong by Joe MacLeod
