Journalism, they say, is the first draft of history. When a story breaks, the central figures tend to be one-dimensional, less characters than caricatures. Quick and easy themes develop. Like most drafts, when thickened with both time and research, the stories get more complex. Nuances emerge. Usually, the good aren't entirely good. The bad aren't entirely bad.

TOWSON, Md. -- As the seconds ticked down toward Northwestern's fourth straight national title, lacrosse sticks went flying.

Aerosmith's Sweet Emotion is blaring over the loudspeakers in the background, but the song's title couldn't be further from the reality for Kelly and the Lizards, who have seen any hopes they had at earning a wildcard playoff bid vanish when the Denver Outlaws capped their dramatic comeback victory with a two-point goal in sudden-death overtime.

Last Friday in New York City a young man boarded Amtrak's 7 p.m. Acela Express, which was loaded with fans who, like him, were traveling to Baltimore for the NCAA men's lacrosse Final Four. He took a seat across from two old friends, cracked open a Bud Light and blithely chatted about what typically interests guys in their 20s -- jobs, mutual acquaintances, girls -- seemingly oblivious to the stares he was getting from a few of the other passengers. The young man politely declined to talk with a reporter who happened to be sitting across the aisle from him (his Wall Street employer, the young man intimated, forbids him from doing so), but the T-shirt he wore provided comment enough. Printed in bold, block letters across the right breast were two words: duke lacrosse. The young man was David Evans, one of the three former Blue Devils players accused -- and later exonerated -- of rape and other offenses against an exotic dancer at a team party last March.

So what was the Duke lacrosse rape case anyway? A hoax? A failure to speak truth to power? A journalistic breakdown? Or was that year-long academic, civic, athletic and sociological trainwreck indeed what North Carolina attorney general Roy Cooper branded a "tragic rush to accuse"? Take your pick: All kinds of labels got tossed around in the wake of Cooper's dismissal Wednesday of all charges against the accused players. And why not? For so long, the team and the events at that infamous March 13, 2006 party had been used as a vessel for so many different themes -- Racism! Power! Privilege! Sexism! -- that it's only fitting to find the endgame just as cluttered. But the fact is, with Cooper's extraordinary statement that Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans are not just "not guilty" but "innocent" of the charges of sexual assault and kidnapping, the need for such puffery dissolved. Everything in Durham got smaller. Nearly everything seemed clear.
