A short time before the Million Man March I read letter written to the Daily News which characterized Jill Porter as a racist. I read the paper and Ms. Porter regularly and decided that this was an observation no one could make for me and marched on to her next columns. On Oct. 18, as I walked through the paper, my journey was stopped by a brick wall called "March was glorious but Farrakhan isn't. " It was Jill Porter's latest. While she'll probably never admit to what really colors her opinion, her second sentence spoke volumns more than the entire column could ever do. She wrote, "In the aftermath of the Million Man March, a bigot is celebrated . . . " As I thought about how exhausted I was by the toll of the event on my body and the challenge to my mind, I wondered just what types of events have aftermaths.

Richie Sambora has a lot on his mind. Beyond the brotherhood that is Bon Jovi, guitarist/vocalist Sambora has had to contend with personal demons throughout the last decade, often documented in the tabloid press. "I'm a big boy and knew full well what came with the territory," says Sambora. "It's the nature of celebrity, part of my vocation. I'm used to it - it was really intense when I was living with Cher - but I don't have to be happy about it. " It's those intimate ordeals and entanglements with their ensuing hassles and mediation and Sambora's struggles to find peace that are at the lyrical heart of Aftermath of the Lowdown , his first solo album in 14 years.

A wooden stake stands where each body part was found. The tip of each stake is painted red. They spread by the hundreds across the scarred soybean field, pelted by the autumn rain yesterday. The thicket of stakes grows dense around the crater opened when the plane slammed down Monday, ending the lives of 68 people. Yesterday the field littered with the aftermath was opened to outsiders for the first time. Amid ordinary signs of the recent Indiana harvest comes the powerful realization that a sophisticated 45,000-pound aircraft and the bodies of 68 people splintered into pieces too tiny to recognize.

WASHINGTON - A day after the deadliest shooting in U.S. history, Democrats challenged Sen. Pat Toomey (R., Pa.) to take a stronger stand on gun laws, aiming to undercut one of his prime arguments for reelection. His Democratic challenger, Katie McGinty, hammered Toomey for voting last year to block a bill that would have barred suspected terrorists from buying guns. And Senate Democrats vowed to bring the politically charged measure back for another vote. "Pat Toomey has worked to allow suspected terrorists to buy guns in this country, and that is just an outrageous position," said McGinty, who is challenging Toomey in one of the country's most critical Senate races.

ISSUE | GUN VIOLENCE Make it tougher for shooters In the aftermath of the worst mass shooting in American history, we are struggling to make sense of how something so horrific could happen. The ex-wife of gunman Omar Mateen said he had been abusive and was mentally unstable. He had been interviewed by the FBI after telling coworkers he might have terrorist ties. Yet he was able to legally buy the high-powered weapons and high-capacity magazines used in the killing of 49 people and wounding of 53 others at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday.

As of this writing, at least 50 people are dead and 53 were injured when a madman unleashed hell inside a gay nightclub in the wee hours of Sunday.

HEATHER DERONCK said biking near her South Philly store was slow, difficult, and dangerous in the aftermath of Winter Storm Jonas last week. Bike lanes were blocked by snow and ice, she said, putting bicyclists in the path of motorists. "People think it's their right to drive like an extra a- when there's snow," she added. DeRonck, owner of Bicycle Revolutions, on Fourth Street near Fitzwater, is one of many bicyclists who said there wasn't enough effort by the city to plow bike lanes after the snowfall, which meant bikers had to share the streets with hurried drivers - many of whom already were frustrated and unwilling to share the road with slower vehicles.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - While officials in New Jersey barrier island towns began tallying erosion losses Monday after a weekend nor'easter of roiling surf and gusting winds that chewed away at the beachfront, comparisons were quick to be made to the last notorious storm - Sandy, in 2012. But Stewart Farrell, an expert in coastal geology and director and founder of Stockton University's Coastal Research Center, said this nor'easter's duration - and ultimate displacement of hundreds of thousands of tons of sand up and down the coast - were more like those of a 1962 storm that has long been a benchmark for Jersey Shore weather.

IF PAST IS indeed prologue - I think Bronko Nagurski said that first - then there is indeed a lot at stake on Sunday when the Eagles play the Jets. The number has been quoted often in recent days, that an NFL team that starts 0-2 has a 12 percent chance of making the playoffs. That's based on this math: Since 1990, when the NFL expanded the playoffs to 12 teams, 24 teams that started 0-2 made the playoffs out of 199 teams that started 0-2. So, there's that. But this is the week where the numbers really get serious.

Last month, Joshua Mensah shared a meal with some of his soon-to-be Cornell University classmates from the Philadelphia area. The annual freshman send-off, at a Drexel Hill country club, focused on his new school. But Mensah found himself defending his old school district in Chester County: A parent said she had heard bad things about Coatesville. Mensah knew all too well what she meant. A year ago, hundreds of pages of racist and sexist text messages between Coatesville's superintendent and athletic director came to light.

In the aftermath of the fire that killed four children on Gesner Street on July 5, neighbors and relatives complained that Fire Department response was too slow, while indignant city officials castigated the father of one of the victims for his vocal attacks. As feelings hardened, there was literally a standoff with police on the sidewalk outside City Hall. But quietly, behind the scenes, a police chaplain sidestepped the acrimony. He reached out to a nonprofit to help the family, natives of Liberia, to defray funeral costs.

HARRISBURG - Democratic and Republican leaders in the state House moved swiftly Wednesday to ban lawmakers in the chamber from accepting cash gifts from lobbyists and others with an interest in state government. The new ethics rule follows stories in The Inquirer that a now-shuttered sting investigation by the state Attorney General's Office had captured five Philadelphia Democrats, including four House members, on recordings accepting money or gifts. In imposing the ban, House leaders said its members, as well as its employees, cannot accept a gift unless it is from a spouse, relative, or friend.

One of the first officers to arrive at the rowdy bar on that awful night was Detective Joseph Delaney. What he saw would haunt him for the rest of his life. "I remember walking in and the tavern being very dark," Delaney recalled in 1988, 25 years after the cold-blooded killings of two officers shocked New Jersey and the country. "My foot slipped on what I thought was spilled beer or wine. "It was blood. The blood of men whom I'd known. " When Delaney entered, the smell of gunpowder lingered in the air. It was Aug. 26, 1963.
