Amid feelings of grief and despair, students in the Deptford school system expressed their anger yesterday over the killing of 12-year-old Kim Marie Anderson, who police say was stabbed to death this week by one of their classmates. Counselors at the Monongahela Junior High School - where the youth accused of the slaying, Kenneth Houseknecht, is a student - told students to purse their lips and not talk with reporters during a day marked by tension, anger and disturbing quiet. Since Tuesday, the brutal killing was the dominant subject in the buzzing hallways of three local schools - Monongahela, Deptford Township High School and the Lake Tract School, where Anderson, known to her friends as Kimberly, was a student.

These are strange times indeed, folks, in the celebrity game. The worst publicity has now become the best kind of publicity you can get. Every time this month, for instance, that TMZ sent out a new gossip bulletin on Lindsay Lohan was a red-letter day for Lifetime. It represented another quarter-million viewers for the Liz Taylor biopic Lohan is currently shooting for the channel. Or take Charlie Sheen. After one of the most depraved runs of misbehavior by a major performer ever, he returns in a new sitcom to rapt curiosity and surprising good will.

His short fuse always seems to be lit anyway, so it came as no surprise when James Toney, walking time bomb, exploded two days before his title defense tonight against "Prince" Charles Williams (HBO, 10 o'clock) at the MGM Grand. As is his custom, Toney, the International Boxing Federation's super- middleweight champion, arrived for Wednesday's final prefight press conference seething with anger over some real or imagined slight. An hour or so later, when he was asked to pose for publicity photos with Williams, Toney began screaming profanities and lunging at Williams.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Monday's announcement of NCAA sanctions against the Penn State football program was met with bewilderment and anger by a large cross-section of current and former players. But nothing seemed to bewilder and anger former Nittany Lions more than the disclosure that all of Joe Paterno's 111 wins over a 14-year period from 1998 through 2011 were vacated, meaning they won't count in the NCAA record book. Adam Taliaferro, the South Jersey native who was almost paralyzed after being involved in a devastating hit in a 2000 game at Ohio State but made an inspiring recovery, couldn't control his disbelief on Twitter only a few hours after the NCAA delivered its penalties for the actions of university officials in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

In this week's Greek elections, the far-right, ultranationalist Golden Dawn party, whose members perform Nazi salutes at rallies, got 7 percent of the vote and entered Parliament for the first time. Its leader told journalists to stand upon his arrival at a news conference and ejected those who did not. A sick joke, you say. What's 7 percent? But Golden Dawn's gains are a symbol of a protest vote that fed extremes in Greece and decimated centrist parties, making it impossible to form a government in a country on the edge of economic collapse.

Under a steady rain Sunday, Judy and Chuck Miller took up spots that have often been occupied by child-abuse victim advocates: the steps of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul. Judy Miller leads the Delaware branch of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), a group that hosted regular protests after the 2011 grand jury report about clergy sex-abuse in Philadelphia. Her return Sunday was prompted by last week's Superior Court ruling that overturned the conviction of Msgr.

Fahrenheit 9/11 made me angrier than any movie I've ever seen. It was a good anger, hard, clean and righteous, and I enjoyed it so much that I went back three days later to experience it again. Took two of my sons and two of their friends so they could become angry, too. It's not that I was unaware the movie is less documentary than propaganda. It's not that I buy its conspiracy theories tying the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to Bush cronies' thirst for oil. It is, rather, that the movie brings us face to face with things essential and disturbing about the President, his people and his war. Things like human cost, as in Lila Lipscomb, an erstwhile proud military mother who is literally bent double by grief after losing her son to a war whose righteousness she had not thought to question.

TODAY'S SELF-HELP TOPIC IS: Coping With Anger. There is definitely too much anger in the world today. Pick up almost any newspaper, and the odds are you'll get ink smeared all over your hands. We use a special kind of easy-smear ink, because we know how much it irritates you. But that's not my point. My point is that if you pick up almost any newspaper, you'll see stories of anger raging out of control, of people actually shooting each other over minor traffic disputes.

DEAR ABBY: My husband died recently in a fire he started in a drunken rampage. In the aftermath I am left with feelings of extreme sadness and rage. Last night I found some old letters he had written to a woman he'd left me for 20 years ago. (We patched things up and then were married later.) I didn't want to read them, but in the first letter I caught the sentence, "You are the only woman I've ever met who truly changed me. " I immediately tore it to shreds. There were others, but I tossed everything in the box into the trash.

There were prayers and hymns. Hands clutching tissues and damp eyes. But there was little anger evident yesterday morning as about 200 friends and relatives gathered to say goodbye to Nicole M. Leps, a young woman who had appeared to be on the verge of beginning a new career. The absence of anger seemed to please the Rev. John Taxter, who asked the mourners at the 10 a.m. Mass at St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church to keep their spirits aloft and not hold bitterness toward the man who killed Leps.

In a community where typical questions to local officials include "What can you do about my neighbor's dog?" and "When and where may I practice firing my shotgun?", it's rare to draw more than 10 citizens to a township meeting. But at a Nov. 17 supervisors meeting in Franconia Township, a crowd of more than 200 people overflowed into the hallways and up to the doors of the building. In less than an hour, chants of "Recall! Recall!" went up in the room. Unbeknownst to most residents, the rural township in upper Montgomery County had run up nearly $3.2 million in budget deficits since 2011, an average of 15 percent per year.

ANGERED BY rumors that the proposed "Live! Hotel & Casino" at the South Philly sports complex will be granted a license on Tuesday, more than 500 residents jammed Stella Maris Church school hall on 10th Street near Bigler last night to protest. "Your civic leaders have done everything possible to stop this train wreck," said Barbara Capozzi, the Packer Park community director in the Sports Complex Special Services District. "We don't want to be the next Atlantic City. " Capozzi said that if the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board chooses the site at Packer Avenue near 10th Street over 8th and Market or North Broad Street near Callowhill, it would be disastrous for the neighborhood's 9,000 residents in 4,100 households.

  Instead of focusing on her students Monday morning, Anissa Weinraub, an English teacher at Academy at Palumbo in South Philadelphia, said she was stunned by the School Reform Commission's sudden decision to cancel its teacher contract. "When the SRC unilaterally imposes . . . what else are they going to try to impose on?" Weinraub asked at a rally outside Gov. Corbett's Philadelphia office Monday afternoon. Weinraub said she believed the teachers' union was negotiating in good faith and was shocked by Monday's news.

WASHINGTON - The latest rumor barely rolled off a reporter's tongue and Ron Hextall grinned, albeit only for a second. "I'm not going to talk about trades," Hextall said. "But I will give you one other piece of advice: Don't believe everything you read. " The rumor, from TSN's Bob McKenzie, said Hextall is actively shopping a defenseman - particularly Luke Schenn or Nick Grossmann - in order to open up a space in the lineup for 2013 first-round pick Samuel Morin. Hextall wasn't happy.

Getting through U.S. Customs checkpoints can be irritating at peak travel times, but some passengers arriving at Philadelphia International Airport got an extra dose of angst this week. New automated passport kiosks, designed to expedite the entry process, had a technology glitch. They didn't work for a while Tuesday afternoon and had to be rebooted at a busy time, when many US Airways and American Airlines flights were arriving from Europe. Travelers who had just spent from seven to nine hours in the air became frustrated, and anger boiled up because many had connecting flights.

The beleaguered Department of Veterans Affairs depicted dissatisfied veterans as Oscar the Grouch in a recent internal training guide, and some vets and VA staffers said Tuesday that they feel trashed. The cranky Sesame Street character who lives in a garbage can was used in reference to veterans who will attend town-hall events Wednesday in Philadelphia. "There is no time or place to make light of the current crisis that the VA is in," said Joe Davis, a national spokesman for the VFW. "And especially to insult the VA's primary customer.

I FIRST HEARD about Robin Williams' death when I was standing in line at my mother's viewing and a friend's BlackBerry dinged with the news alert from CNN. It was a surreal, if brief, moment. Not to be insensitive, but while I always liked Mindy's Mork and all the other incarnations of this gifted actor, the death of a stranger was exponentially less important than my personal grief. Still, when I heard it was a suicide, my fleeting first thought was that my mother had fought so valiantly to cling to something Williams had just thrown away.

HARRISBURG - In his first post-primary television ad, a stern Gov. Corbett tells would-be supporters that he "did not come to Harrisburg to make friends. " On Thursday, he boldfaced that point. After pushing the 10-day deadline to take action on the legislature-approved state budget to the bitter end, Corbett came out swinging, accusing legislators of failing to act on the pension crisis and instead filling their own coffers with money for pet projects. Behind closed doors he signed the $29 billion spending plan, but not before wielding his blue pen to do something no governor in at least the last 20 years dared to do - by line-item veto slashing $65 million in funding to run Senate and House operations.
