LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

I f you could withstand the barrage of punishment, you might have enjoyed the 23rd Annual O.Henry Pun-Off World Championships held recently in Austin.

Some 18,000 Texas students from 1,200 schools participate in the state's annual play competition, going after what they want, full-throttle, without irony and without fear.

Would Indiana coach Bobby Knight's job future be in question if his team were winning? Does a coach's demeanor only matter if he's losing?

Plus, Marcel Proust on stage, serving time in the boxing ring, and more.
