Terry Harris, a cardiologist's son who grew up in Frayser and rose through the ranks as a state prosecutor, appears to be hitting his stride as United States attorney for the Western District of Tennessee. With a court docket that, this year alone, has included the Logan Young trial, the O.C. Smith trial, a steady flow of gun cases, the sentencing in the Madison day-care case, and a potential terrorism case (see this week's cover story, page 16), the federal building sometimes seems like a cross between ESPN SportsCenter, CSI, Law and Order, and Days of Our Lives, with Harris and his assistants in the director's role.
