As if budget woes and bad-check scandals weren't enough to fight about, congressional Republicans and Democrats now are arguing over - of all things - a birthday party. On May 13, the Democratic Party will be 200 years old, and Democrats in Congress are in the mood for a celebration. The much-younger Republicans - their party is only 138 - don't think the milestone is worth a party. "Why not have one for the Communists or the Nazis?" said Tony Blankley, press secretary for House Republican Whip Rep. Newt Gingrich (R., Ga.)

The intersection of Township Line and Burmont Roads in Drexel Hill may seem like an inappropriate spot for a birthday party, but to the more than 200 students from St. Dorothy's School, it was just right. It is the corner from which Otto Kuhne has been helping students cross on their way to and from school for the last 17 years. So it was the perfect place to sing "Happy Birthday" to the 83-year-old crossing guard and wish him many more years of good health and a perfect on-the-job safety record.

When I walked into Woody's (a popular gay bar), I thought I was seeing a ghost. James, after all, was supposed to be dead. I'd buried him years ago. James was the first person I ever knew with AIDS. We met in the tiny bar that was the sole refuge for gay men in State College, and where James had come home to die. The night we met, James was sitting with on a barstool, a pair of clogs resting on the floor underneath him. He had a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other.

AMBLER Brooke Rhea, 16, lives in a sprawling five-bedroom house in pricey Lower Gwynedd Township, where she was raised by two parents who have full-time, well-paid jobs. It's probably fair to say, and Rhea, a junior at Wissahickon High School, would be the first to agree, that she has been lucky. "A lot of people have told me how quickly you can go from doing OK to struggling to find enough to eat," she said Saturday, standing in the parking lot of the Mattie Dixon Community Cupboard, a food pantry for the poor, in downtown Ambler.

Approached by a lobbyist bearing cash or jewelry, any official with a semblance of ethical backbone would refuse the gifts and report the sleazy encounter to authorities. And yet not one of the Philadelphia Democrats alleged to have taken such gifts from a wire-wearing informant did that. Interviewed by The Inquirer's Angela Couloumbis and Craig R. McCoy, most of the politicians claimed memory lapses, changed their stories, or just refused to respond. Only one, State Rep. Louise Bishop, managed to deny taking the money.

To Lucress Irizarry, the July 2012 birthday party for State Sen. LeAnna Washington was like any other laid-back summer gathering. About 100 casually dressed guests milled beneath a tent on the lawn of Fairmount Park's Belmont Mansion, some holding plates of quiche and chicken from the buffet. As the afternoon sun fell, guests sat at round tables or danced to music from a DJ. "It was really nice," said Irizarry, who co-owns a photography company that Washington hired to shoot the event.
