The NBA is currently in the conference finals, with Dallas battling Phoenix in the West, and Detroit going against Miami in the East. Before I break down those series, I must mention the Dallas-San Antonio series won by Dallas in seven games. Because of a scheduling quirk, the best two teams in the West met in the conference semifinals. This was one of the best series the NBA has seen in a long time. Every game except the game two victory by Dallas was close. Dallas won two games in overtime and another by one point.

The Morris 13U baseball team opened their season by taking first place honors in the Hutchinson Invitational on May 20-21. Morris took on the host team, Hutchinson, in their opening game on Saturday. Hutchinson had a very fine pitcher who shut the Morris team down for the first four innings. Eric Riley was the Morris starting pitcher and he gave up an unearned run in the second and three earned runs in the third, and Hutchinson had a 4-0 lead. Cole Riley got things started for Morris in the bottom of the fifth when he led off with a long double to right-center.
By Jason Salzman There are two genres of war coverage: One kind reports on the battle in Iraq, the second on the "war at home." Writing about the war at home may be safer for journalists, but it's just as hard to cover, because the essential elements of the story, though critically important, get repetitive and, yes, are of less and less interest to your average media consumer. I don't mean to say that anti-war protests, wounded soldiers, angry mothers, crying widows, defense industry profits, and the like shouldn't be considered news.
By Ted Kooser Most of us have taken at least a moment or two to reflect upon what we have learned from our mothers. Through a catalog of meaningful actions that range from spiritual to domestic, Pennsylvanian Julia Kasdorf evokes the imprint of her mother's life on her own. As the poem closes, the speaker invites us to learn these actions of compassion. What I Learned From My Mother I learned from my mother how to love the living, to have plenty of vases on hand in case you have to rush to the hospital with peonies cut from the lawn, black ants still stuck to the buds.
