Robert Morlino up, Memorial High down

UP: Robert Morlino. A group of area Catholics publish an open letter in support of Madison's bishop, saying they're tired of people bashing him. Critics had accused Morlino of driving Catholics away from the church with his actions, including firing an openly gay music director. But the letter applauds Morlino's hard-line stance, noting, "Christ's teachings are challenging. Many of them are politically incorrect today."

DOWN: Memorial High. The Madison school district shuts down Memorial on Friday, the day after a fight between black and Latino students leads to the arrest of seven students and rumors of a gun being brought to school. No weapon is found, but the fight's instigators could be charged with hate crimes.
