HAPPY BIRTHDAY on Wednesday to Sherman Hemsley, who moves on up to 74. Born and raised in Southwest Philadelphia, the actor played a hilariously devious dry-cleaner and deacon on "The Jeffersons." (In real life, he was in the Air Force, worked for the post office and performed on Broadway.) In the stars for Sherman: Like Mr. J., he'll be successful in money. Unlike George, Hemsley will also be successful in relationships.
Former District Attorney Lynne Abraham prosecutes 71 tomorrow. Blythe Danner turns 69 on Friday. Saturday, Sixer Lavoy Allen tips 23, and comedian David Brenner laughs at 76. Sunday, sports anchor Lesley Van Arsdall sweeps 38, and Bucks-born Playboy Playmate Shannon James hops to 25.
