SPORTS IN BRIEF

Although my mom definitely beats them on quality, Sharples has a certain
quantitative and convenient charm.

All I need to do is get her to make me a bag lunch everyday!

Palestinians. In his first speech before the Parliament Abbas denounced such
terrorism, and no groups have yet claimed responsibility for the bombing.
* US paramilitary forces fired on Iraqi anti-American protestors on Monday
night, killing 13 and injuring 75. The protest occurred outside a school in
Fajullah, a conservative Sunni town that is also a stronghold for Hussein’s
Baathist party. US forces continue to insist that they only fired on armed

shooting is the third fatal clash between Iraqi protestors and US forces in
* The Supreme Court decided on Tuesday that the government can detain
immigrants who are awaiting deportation. The decision came at a 5-4 split,
and upheld a 1996 law that allowed the government to detain the immigrants
without bail, thus not giving them the chance to prove that they are at no
risk of flight. Denmore v Kim, the case facing the Supreme Court, involved a
Korean man who had immigrated to the US at the age of six before being
convicted of burgulary and petty theft.
