You've seen those friendly messages on your utility bills - things like where to call if you smell gas, or how to get help if you're behind on payments. Well, the city Water Department earlier this month had a novel message for more than 100,000 customers: a plug for a $100-a-plate charity banquet honoring Mayor Rendell as "Man of the Year. " "What?" Rendell said yesterday when told of the message. "That is enormously inappropriate. " Rendell said he was unaware of the plug and would instruct the department not to use space on water bills for private appeals.

The plot begins with one of those Shakespearean setups doomed to fail. The King (Terrell Green) invites three friends to join him for three years of abstemious study with no women.
