ANOTHER blame game stone-thrower. Re "Ghost Voters" (letters, Sept. 3) by Thomas Lutek: I challenge you, Mr. Lutek, to produce facts or evidence that ghosts, or, as you imply, dead people, vote in Philadelphia. Come on, put your absurd allegation to the test. Prove it to all of Philadelphia that dead people vote in elections. Losing candidates have made this same absurd and baseless allegation, and were proven wrong in federal court, and the same allegation was made a while back in an opinion piece in this very paper.

Two lawyers representing Mets pitcher David Cone have denied allegations by a New Jersey woman that Cone raped her in his room in a Philadelphia hotel Saturday night. "David Cone did nothing wrong," said Steven Fehr, a lawyer in Kansas City, Mo., where Cone lives. "I very strongly believe that. We have retained Philadelphia counsel to assist in this matter. The publicity that this has received, before the police have even made a determination, is very unfortunate. " Cone's Philadelphia attorney, Walter M. Phillips Jr., said, "Our position is that the allegation is without any foundation as the Police Department investigation, with our assistance, will so prove.

District Justice Brenda Bicking has refused to work with Constable Richard Legree, and last month her lawyer, Sam Stretton, listed some of the reasons. Now Legree has released a notarized statement from one of Bicking's employees that seems to contradict one of those reasons. Stretton had said that Claudia Palmer, the criminal clerk in Bicking's court, filed a complaint with the District Attorney's Office alleging that Legree sexually harassed her. But in the statement, which Palmer's lawyer, Robert Donatoni, confirmed yesterday was authentic, Palmer states that Legree never made any "sexual advances" toward her. To which Stretton replied, Bicking alleged sexual harassment, not sexual advances, which are not the same thing.

James Vivenzio says he thought pledging a fraternity at Pennsylvania State University would mean brotherhood and honor. Instead, the 21-year-old from Great Falls, Va., says, he was force-fed buckets of liquor mixed with urine, vomit, and hot sauce; made to guzzle hard alcohol until he vomited; burned on the chest with a cigarette; and once was beaten by a member of Kappa Delta Rho after he failed to participate in a ritual. And the university, he contends in a lawsuit filed Monday in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court, failed to act after he reported the abuse more than a year ago, including his telling the school about the existence of private Facebook pages fraternity members allegedly used to post revealing photos of females who may have been aware they were being photographed.

THE STRETCH of Rosewood Street between Moore and Mifflin is pure South Philly. It's a block where families have sown deep roots, where the same faces have been walking into and out of the rowhouses for decades. And it has a reputation as a quiet block. So quiet that some people don't even lock their doors. That's likely to change. Yesterday, many of Rosewood's longtime residents were still trying to make sense of a hellish home invasion early Monday, during which a 35-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by a masked man wearing red gloves who apparently had been biding his time in her bathroom, waiting to attack.
