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.

It's a dangerous world we live in. Killer earthquakes rumbling through Southern California, test Soviet ICBMs splashing close to Hawaii, radon silently poisoning the rec room. And now - Attack video! Imagine. You are sitting in that comfortable chair in the living room, feet on the ottoman, clutching a cool one, watching television. Suddenly, powerful laser beams shoot out from the TV. Zap!

ANKARA, Turkey - In the second deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic post in five months, a suicide bomber struck the American Embassy in Ankara on Friday, killing a Turkish security guard in what the White House described as a terrorist attack. Washington immediately warned Americans to stay away from all U.S. diplomatic facilities in Turkey and to be wary in large crowds.

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.

A Philadelphia man was sentenced yesterday to 11 1/2 to 23 months in Delaware County Prison for sexually assaulting a 24-year-old Drexel Hill woman at a department store in January. Donald Ranson, 48, of the 700 block of North 46th Street, pleaded guilty in Delaware County Court to assaulting the woman in a fitting room at Macy's in Springfield Mall. Ranson was a store supervisor. The attack occurred before the store opened on a Saturday. Ranson approached the woman, who worked as a housekeeper, in the fitting room and asked her to have sex with him. When she refused, Ranson tried to force himself on her; she broke free and ran. Later, he told her that he would try again and threatened to use a gun if she did not remain quiet.

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.

Norm Willey seemed determined that his football-card images be worthy of his "Wild Man" nickname. On one, the 1950s Eagles defensive end looks like a winged raptor about to snatch a prairie dog. As he glides menacingly toward the camera, Willey's arms are spread wide, his mouth agape, his long fingers curled and outstretched like talons. That's how he must have looked to New York Giants quarterback Charlie Conerly on Oct. 26, 1952, the most memorable day of Willey's eight-year Eagles career.

DRIVING your car in Center City on a weeknight. Fairly safe situation, right? Not for a Fairmount couple who police say were attacked by a small group of rampaging punks on bicycles at 18th and Lombard streets. Cops say the driver and his wife, both 31, were stopped at a red light at 8:34 p.m. Thursday when the kids pulled up on bikes in front of the vehicle. One opened the passenger door and tried to pull the woman out. When her husband started to back up, the kids hurled rocks, causing him to strike parked vehicles, according to police.

I MAKE NO secret of the fact that I'm (an imperfect) Catholic. That makes for interesting conversations with strangers who know me only by what I've written, particularly former Catholics who still can't believe I go to Mass. So many of them wonder why I don't speak out against the horrible scourge of child abuse that became one of the preferred media obsessions over the past decade and a half. I understand why they ask, because to people whose only knowledge of the church was gleaned from the Baltimore Catechism back in the 1960s - before they abandoned the pews (and the Colts abandoned Baltimore)

BLOOMING GROVE, Pa. - Eric Frein's Internet searches included how to avoid police during manhunts, use law enforcement technology, and survive in the wilderness. That evidence, retrieved from a computer, suggests that Frein spent years planning an attack and retreat into the Pocono Mountains, a state police commander said Friday. Police believe Frein is still in the woods in Monroe or Pike Counties, two weeks after he allegedly killed one trooper and wounded another. It had been nearly three days since police last spotted Frein, but they said they have no evidence to suggest he has left the area.

KATHRYN KNOTT thinks "jazz flute is for little fairy boys," #gay is #ew and whiskey is awesome. Those Twitter musings are part of what may cost her a job at Lansdale Hospital, according to a statement from Abington Health System. Knott, 24, of Southampton, Bucks County, was suspended yesterday from her position as an emergency-room technician at the hospital, where she has worked since May 2011. Hours before she was suspended, Knott and two other suspects in an allegedly homophobia-fueled attack on two gay men near Rittenhouse Square turned themselves in to police to face charges of aggravated and simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and criminal conspiracy.

WASHINGTON - Democrats' latest attack on a South Jersey Republican congressional candidate takes him to task for a legal dispute that pulled in his former insurance company - a year after he left it. The attack ad, produced by national Democrats, prompted a threat of a lawsuit Monday and a demand that it be pulled off TV. The campaign fight hinges on a television ad the Washington-based Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) began running on cable Sunday hammering Tom MacArthur, the Republican in a surprisingly close House race against Democrat Aimee Belgard.
