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.

" 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.

ATLANTIC CITY - The ad came over the radio airwaves like an unseen volley from afar: "You've got to wonder what Assemblyman Chris Brown is thinking . . . " Actually, listeners of WOND 1400AM talk radio didn't have to wonder, because Brown is a frequent guest on the station. And the origins of the ad did not remain a mystery for long: Its super PAC sponsor, the Turnout Project out of Washington, D.C., was quickly outed as tied to the influential web of South Jersey Democratic power-broker George Norcross, who backs a state takeover of Atlantic City that Brown is resisting.

WASHINGTON - In Pennsylvania's critical U.S. Senate race, Democrats have nominated a liberal bureaucrat who enriched herself as she spun between government jobs and the private sector - if you listen to Republicans. She is trying to unseat a Wall Street crony more interested in helping big business than the average worker - if you believe Democrats. The competing images - and attempts to cement them well in advance of November's election - are already bombarding Pennsylvania's airwaves.

In their first substantive attack on evidence that could feature in their client's corruption trial, U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah's attorneys accused prosecutors of lobbing disingenuous accusations and innuendo at members of the congressman's family. Lawyer Samuel W. Silver, in filings late Monday in U.S. District Court, said government lawyers had twisted the meaning behind recorded conversations they hope to use at trial. He specifically cited a tape that prosecutors flagged this month, saying it could expose Fattah's wife, former NBC10 news anchor Renee Chenault-Fattah, to possible criminal liability.

Bernie Sanders continued a war of words Thursday. Sanders repeated his assertion that she is unqualified to be president because as a senator she voted for the Iraq war, "one of the biggest blunders in U.S. history"; backed most free-trade agreements that cost U.S. jobs; and raised millions in campaign money from Wall Street.
