KABUL, Afghanistan - Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel got a stark taste of the challenges that continue to bedevil Afghanistan, as insurgents carried out two deadly bombings Saturday, one within earshot of the Pentagon chief. The Afghan government, meanwhile, abruptly canceled a ceremony scheduled for Saturday that had been meant to show that Kabul and Washington had finally reached a deal for the handover of a U.S. military prison. Afghan President Hamid Karzai at the last minute balked at the proposed terms of the handover of the Parwan Detention Facility, Afghan and U.S. officials said, dashing hopes that a resolution of a contentious issue that has poisoned the relationship between the two countries was in sight.

On December 12 at approximately 2:30 a.m. I was awaken from a sound sleep of a vicious dog attacking and mauling to death Joey, a stray cat on the 600 block of East Flora Street. The sound of Joey screaming for help was horrible. The owner of this vicious dog did not even have the dog on a leash and did not even try to stop the attack. Joey never bothered anyone and he did not deserve to die like he did. This was a senseless killing.The dog's owner is a heartless human being for allowing this to happen.

A Frankford teenager yesterday was found guilty of robbery, riot and indecent assault for his part in an attack by more than 15 black youths on a white woman who was beaten, robbed and stripped of all but her bra. After issuing the verdict against David Fletcher, 19, of the 4700 block of Hawthorne Street, Common Pleas Court Judge Gene D. Cohen said, "I am particularly outraged by this case. " Cohen did not find enough evidence to convict Fletcher of a charge of ethnic intimidation, although police had said the April 10 nighttime attack was racially motivated.

APOCALYPSE '91: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BLACK Public Enemy. Columbia. Talk of Public Enemy usually centers on their incendiary words. And no wonder. On their fourth and latest album, PE, the self-described "prophets of rage," skewer black radio for not playing enough rap, attack Arizona for refusing to celebrate Martin Luther King Day, eviscerate malt liquor companies for targeting black consumers and put down the church as a pacifying distraction in the black community. And that's just for starters.

There were plenty of attacks on Hillary Rodham Clinton and President Obama in Thursday's early GOP presidential debate, featuring the seven candidates who didn't qualify for the 9 p.m. prime-time event in Cleveland. But perhaps the more revealing moments in the hour-long event, referred to by some as the "happy hour" debate, came when second-tier candidates took shots at 2016 rivals who are performing better in the polls, such as Donald Trump and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Carly Fiorina, former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard, said Trump had tapped into Americans' frustration with "politics as usual.

As Pennsylvania entered its third week without a budget, Gov. Wolf and the Republicans whose support he needs to pass a spending plan were hundreds of miles apart - and not just figuratively. Wolf spent the day Monday touting his plan in Western Pennsylvania, while Philadelphia-area GOP legislators gathered in Norristown to assail the governor's position on key budget issues - and what they call his unprofessional, take-no-prisoners public relations war against them. The lawmakers called a news conference to respond directly to what they consider to be misleading television ads and mailers that attack each of them individually.

THE MULTITIERED granite steps from the concourse of the Municipal Services Building provide more than just an egress from SEPTA's underground rail line to the Center City streets above. The steps, or rather the cavernous space beneath them, offer refuge from the rain for Philadelphia's homeless. "This is the only dry place we can go in Center City," George Creamer said yesterday after yet another soaker left puddles near his cardboard sleeping mat. "Trust me, I'd rather sleep out underneath the stars, but on nights like tonight, when it's going to rain, there is going to be 20 people down here.
