- ND, WVU meet in battle of underachievers (By KERRY SMITH Sports Writer)
At first glance Saturday's match-up between Notre Dame and West Virginia appears to produce a similar pair. Both teams are struggling offensively, both head coaches have searched for a leader at the quarterback position and both teams are looking for ways to turn a losing season around.

When the 2001-02 installment of the Notre Dame women's basketball program put on their uniforms for media day and took the Joyce Center floor together for the first time last Thursday, they hardly resembled the squad that brought home the NCAA championship last April.

- Questioning America's unity (Gary Caruso Capitol Comments)
How united are we? Americans boast that they are united against our nation's aggressors, but many of their actions have thus far been less than inspirational. Each of us sees the same flag with its stars and stripes, yet our definitions of patriotism and freedom selfishly omit others.

- Patients need to keep up their end of the deal (Stephen Carroll A Medical Perspective)
Sometimes doctors get very frustrated when patients don't seem to get it.
