DEAR ABBY: I am a young man in college. When I was an infant, I was circumcised, and I feel violated that my parents decided to circumcise me without my consent. When the doctor performed the surgery, he took too much off, which causes me pain. When I was in grade school, I was sexually assaulted by an older classmate, but I feel much more violated from the circumcision because it took a part of me that I can never get back. I am filled with hate and anger toward my parents, even though I know it is unfair to them because they believed they were making the right choice at the time.

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.

By B.G. Kelley I'm angry. The guy in the car behind me on Roosevelt Boulevard is unmercifully honking his horn. I am going too slowly for him, and he's angry as a blister. When I look in the rearview mirror, I can see he's cursing me out. Anger surrounds us. It's in our politics, our streets, our music, and our movies and television shows. It's in the video games our kids play on the Internet. We see it in sports - athletes being arrested for domestic abuse or parents assaulting coaches for not playing their kid more.

DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of four. My children are wonderful, but they really don't listen. Instead of sitting down and talking to them, I scream and call them names. Then, after they go to sleep, I feel extremely guilty. My 12-year-old girl struggles in school. I have tried to be calm and help her. But I become easily frustrated and give up. Then I start to scream and tell her she'll never get it. I'm afraid I am damaging my child in the long run. How can I control my anger so I can help her succeed?

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.

ISSUE | DONALD TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN Candidate's threats Donald Trump started the confrontations between supporters and protesters, such as at the canceled rally in Chicago on Friday, by encouraging violence ("Chaos derails rally for Trump," Saturday). Trump has said about a protester, "I'd like to punch him in the face, I'll tell you that," and has offered to pay the legal expenses of those who commit violence against those who don't agree with him. He has also reminisced about the "good old days" when protesters were taken out on stretchers.

Why did Bernie Sanders fail? Sanders continues his campaign after his Super Tuesday losses, but he has no real chance of wresting the Democratic presidential nomination from Hillary Clinton. The socialist insurgent went further than most thought possible, drawing huge crowds, amassing vast sums, and forcing Clinton to adopt more populist positions. But the Sanders challenge was doomed by a fatal flaw: Democrats aren't as unhappy as he needed them to be. It is an article of faith this year that voters are angry.

DEAR ABBY: My husband cheated on me and told me to find somebody else. He moved in with the other woman and spread lies about me, telling my in-laws that I had cheated on him. He was on probation, so I reported to his probation officer that he was lying about where he was living. He was arrested for it. He is now incarcerated and facing a two-year prison sentence. We're trying to work on our marriage, but I haven't told him that I'm the person who reported him to his probation officer.

The expanded 25th-anniversary edition of Karen Finley's Shock Treatment brings her Thursday to the Free Library. In the introduction, Finley reminds readers of the 1980s and '90s culture wars and social divides that first brought the performance artist/poet to prominence. The new edition of the 1990 book contains the raw record of Finley's controversial late-'80s and early-'90s theatrical performances, embracing then-taboo topics.

Some small side streets in South Philadelphia still looked Sunday as if they could have been scenes from Alaska or the Arctic. Residents complained that the city had cleared bigger streets like Broad, Chestnut and Spring Garden - but that smaller streets had been untouched. In South Philadelphia, snow was piled a couple of feet deep on streets like Percy, Darien, Mildred, and Beulah, between 6th and 10th streets. On Ritner, a Mercedes-Benz was mired in snow, blocking in neighbors who said they couldn't get to work.

I walked into a bar-restaurant on Broad Street on New Year's Day looking for an old friend and instead I found our new mayor sitting by himself, surrounded by people who didn't recognize him and had never heard his name. Jim Kenney looked perfectly at ease in his anonymity at a place called Bliss. He sat at the elbow on the far end of the bar that faced the floor-to-ceiling windows along Broad Street and framed the passing string bands and fancy brigades like a huge-TV/video-screen tuned to the Mummers Channel.

DEAR ABBY: My 15-year old daughter, "Jenny," has a best friend, "Carly," she stays with when we're out of town. My husband and I are planning a three-day trip at the end of the month. Jenny has already asked Carly if she can stay, and of course, the answer was yes. This morning Jenny got an invitation to another friend's birthday party the Saturday of the weekend we'll be away. Although the birthday girl knows Carly, Carly was not invited. I told Jenny it would be very rude for her to leave Carly's house to attend a sleepover party that her friend wasn't invited to. My husband agrees, but won't verbally back me up. He says, "I don't want to get in the middle.
