It's not surprising that Camilla Luddington is so believably American as Jo Wilson, the surgical resident on Grey's Anatomy . She's been working on her accent since she was a child, growing up in the British town of Ascot. "Even at 5, I would go to the supermarket and pretend I had an American accent," she says. "I knew I wanted to act and that Hollywood and America were where the movie stars were. So to impersonate an American was the coolest thing. " Her immersion course came at 19 when she enrolled at Susquehanna University in tiny Selinsgrove, Pa. "All the international students arrived early," she recalls.

Hey, big surprise: Ron Jeremy craves attention. That's the revelation in Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy, a laid-back documentary about the hirsute, Queens-born Ronnie Hyatt, who was endowed with an especially large member, and who, after changing his name (to protect his physicist father and family) deployed said appendage in anywhere from 1,000 to 1,800 X-rated movies, many in the late '70s and early '80s. Which, by the way, someone in the pic designates "the golden era of porn.

Dr. Robert J. Johnson, 83, a professor of anatomy known for his boundless knowledge and energetic lectures, and a World War II veteran whose passion for history led him to almost every major Civil War battlefield, died Tuesday at his home in Wynnewood of a brain tumor. Dr. Johnson was a professor emeritus of anatomy and surgery at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and had also taught at the University of Washington and West Virginia University. "At each place, he was a legend," said Dr. Grant Gauger, a former student and colleague and a close friend of Dr. Johnson's.

The doctor was dining one day in 1846 when he noticed some tiny white specks in the boiled ham on his plate. He decided not to finish the ham. Instead, he took it to his laboratory and examined it under a microscope. The white specks turned out to be Trichina spiralis. Joseph Leidy, who had received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania only a couple of years before, knew that such parasitic organisms sometimes thrived in human beings. They had been discovered in the 1830s by Sir James Paget, an English surgeon.

Beginning with Leonardo da Vinci and continuing for four centuries to Thomas Eakins, art and anatomy have converged at a number of points. Since the Renaissance, artists have considered knowledge of anatomy essential to depicting the human body in two or three dimensions, at rest and in motion. "The Ingenious Machine of Nature: Four Centuries of Art and Anatomy" at the Philadelphia Museum of Art examines various ways that anatomical studies served artists before the modern period.

Paul C. Schroy 2d, 66, whose early work in liver anatomy studies helped pave the way for liver transplant procedures, died Monday at Underwood- Memorial Hospital in Woodbury. A Woodbury resident, Dr. Schroy was a surgeon at Underwood-Memorial Hospital for almost 35 years and had served as the first chief of surgery for Kessler Memorial Hospital in Hammonton during the mid-1960s. His career as a surgeon slowed and then ended several years after a 1986 heart attack. Dr. Schroy performed the first pacemaker implant in Gloucester County in 1967 and was for many years the principal surgeon performing pacemaker operations in the county, said Nancy Edwards, the coordinator for the Underwood's patient education department and who worked with Dr. Schroy on the 1967 surgery.

It's one of medicine's masterpieces, an atlas of paintings of the human body. But Eduard Pernkopf's anatomy book may have used victims of Nazi terror as models, and science is now haunted over whether the brilliance of the Nazis' work should obscure the shadows of their cruelty. Recently, at a national meeting in Baltimore, medical artists reopened a dilemma that haunts many scientific experiments, from the Tuskegee syphilis study to the U.S. government's human radiation tests of the 1950s: What should science do with useful knowledge that was acquired unethically?

The life-size skeleton at the entrance to the exhibition on anatomical drawings at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is made of plastic. At close range, the bolts and screws that keep it together are clearly visible. Still, it does have a certain funereal panache. Modeled after a drawing in a series by the artist Jan Wandelaar, which is called "Male Skeleton in a Landscape," the bones are assembled in a languorous sort of walking pose, with the right arm and hand extended in a sweeping casual gesture.

AFTER THE BET Awards Sunday night, all anyone who watched could talk about was the fiery speech on racism by actor/activist Jesse Williams . It took actress/Fox News contributor  Stacey Dash  a few extra days to gather her thoughts. Surprise! She was not a fan. If Williams is one of the younger leaders in a new civil rights movement, Dash won't be marching, unless it's to her own drum. Thankfully, E! News tracks Dash's blog: "I've said it before and I'll say it again: BET is keeping racism and segregation alive and this past Sunday's awards show proves it," she wrote.

PEOPLE ARE SO desperate to get out of debt that they will believe anything and anyone promising relief. They often turn to debt-relief companies that promote plans that supposedly can solve their problems. But for many, not only does the relief not come but the steep cost of the plans - sometimes thousands of dollars - can dig them in deeper. Recently, the Federal Trade Commission announced a $7.9 million settlement with one debt-relief operation that the agency said scammed people with false promises.

When softly dramatic singer-songwriter William Fitzsimmons verbalizes the woe of the devastated "Centralia" or the loss that conjures images of "Ghosts of Penn Hills," he's speaking from deeply rooted experience. The 37-year-old, whose music is familiar to fans of ABC's Grey's Anatomy (don't hold that against him), may be based in Illinois, but he grew up around Pittsburgh. He knows well the industrial swell of Heinz City, the spookily earthen feel of Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains, and the low, mossy Cumberland Valley.

Others will expound on earwax, urine, and feces - and how, ickiness aside, they play a vital role in human health.

Having famously named his first midterm "shellacking," President Obama declined to offer a similarly punchy description of last week's sequel. For pointed political metaphors, there's always the hog castration that kept coming up in Iowa, where pig gelder turned Republican Sen.-elect Joni Ernst vowed to make Washington "squeal. " The nation's repudiation of the president Tuesday, when it gave the Senate and therefore the whole Congress to the party opposite, was almost as clear as Pennsylvania's verdict on its governor.
