, long a sideshow in the JonBenet Ramsey circus, hits (or is that creates?) the news with his creepy e-mail exchange with John Mark Karr -- in which Tracey (pictured) looks about as much like a journalism prof as Ward Churchill does a native American.

For an extra-credit course on Tracy, go to Forums for Justice: The Truth about Colorado Journalism Professor Michael Tracy. -- Patricia Calhoun
