The day's other domestic feature coverage ranged from the celebratory to the inspirational to the nitty-gritty. CBS' Seth Doane continued his reports from The Other America with a murder in Shenandoah Pa: four players from the hardscrabble former mining town's high school football team are charged with a hate crime after a late-night street fight left a Mexican immigrant dead. "I cannot say, you know: 'The Mexicans came here and now there are problems.' I cannot say that without sounding racist," complained one young white man, accurately, to Doane. For inspirational, NBC's Bob Faw took us to Walter Reed Army Medical Center where triple amputee Luis Rosa-Valentin, made deaf from an explosion in Iraq, is going through rehab with the help of his chalkboard wielding best friend from high school. For celebration, CBS' Michelle Miller marked the 50th anniversary of Alvin Ailey's American Dance Theater with a beautifully bald Judith Jamison.
