WHERE CAN we begin to say "thank you" for the nice surprise the residents of the Philadelphia Protestant Home residents received on Sept. 11? The Daily News said it all on the first anniversary of the attacks: "There are no words!" The paper is a treasure of remembrance that we can keep and pass on to our children. Again, so many thanks for sending those papers over to the grateful folks at PPH. Dottie Warrington The Philadelphia Protestant Home

YOU JUST can't make make this stuff up! First we have Sen. Edward Kennedy, in his questioning of Alberto Gonzales, wanting to know if he thought holding someone under water would be considered torture. The senator, of all people, should know! Then we have Sen. Robert Byrd, ex-KKK member, criticizing Condoleezza Rice for "increasing isolation, enmity in the world. " The Democrats might have lost the election - but they certainly deserve an award for unmitigated gall! John M. Kaufmann Sr., Springfield

WHO IS paying Will Bunch's salary - the Democratic National Committee? I just read another of his inaccurate and heavily biased polemics. The target was Mitt Romney. Bunch cherry-picked the quote to purposely smear Romney. The full and unobjectionable quote was: "You know, if someone doesn't give me the good service, then I want to say, 'I'm going to get someone else to provide that service to me.' " Surely, only a desperate Democratic demagogue like Bunch would stoop to twisting that, right?

Three young white men who have been accused of harassing a family here because the sons are friendly with African American men say they are not instigating trouble, and deny that they are members of a hate group. "No, I am not a skinhead," said Matt Szymanski, 19, of Franklin Township, in an interview last week outside Municipal Hall. He was accompanied by James "Jimmy" Downs, 20, of Vineland, and a 16-year-old Delsea Regional High School student who asked that his name not be used.

Never mind the scorching heat blanketing Atlantic City on this Saturday night. The real inferno was inside the Tropicana Casino's Planet Rose. Strippers were grinding, pumping, and pounding to the pulsating music. Bottles of booze were being guzzled, as dollar bills were stuffed into waistbands. Whistling and whooping, the crowd was on fire. A bunch of guffawing guys having their way? Hardly. Just girls gone wild, getting down-and-dirty, and lusting after the men in the SavageMania exotic male dancer show.

WILL BUNCH'S recent column is as pure a potpourri of leftist rhetoric as I have seen in some time. It's so blatant all I have to do is translate just some of his phrases into normal-ese to make my point. Here goes. He tells us that the (forced by political correctness) removal of the Confederate flag reminded him "of something remarkable that happened a quarter-century ago: the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the fall of the Iron Curtain. " Nonsense. Those things stood for a failed ideology from the nineteenth century; the Confederate flag (whether you like it or not)

I stood in front of the winner's circle at Belmont Park, ready to scribble some history into my notebook. A record crowd showed up, 120,139, all there for the same reason, that June day in 2004, to see if a horse from Philadelphia Park could capture the last leg of the Triple Crown. The whole sport was rooting for Smarty Jones. I stood next to a young Belmont Park jockey, dressed in a dapper gray suit. As he talked to his girlfriend on his cellphone, I scribbled down what he said: "They haven't thrown me out yet. Oh, honey, I wish you were here.

IT WAS every Sunday, Curtis Bunche said. Bunche and his son, Malcolm, would - like thousands of other Eagles fans - sit in front of the television and watch their beloved team. Malcolm loved watching Eagles greats like Tra Thomas, Brian Dawkins and Hugh Douglas. "A few times we did go to the game," Curtis Bunche said. "But we enjoyed it more so at home in front of the television than actually sitting in the stadium. That was every Sunday his entire life, really, growing up. " Now, Malcolm has a chance to wear an Eagles helmet on Sundays.

Mike Coccia would understand if he hears an occasional boo from the crowd while playing for the Eagles. The undrafted rookie center is a Bethlehem native and son of an Eagles season-ticket holder whose memories with his father include sitting in the 700 level at Veterans Stadium and collecting stories unfit to print. Malcolm Bunche, an undrafted lineman from Newark, Del., would understand, too. His father, Curtis Bunche, was an Eagles draft pick in 1979. Bunche grew up rooting for the Eagles less than one hour down I-95.

* MASTERPIECE: DOWNTON ABBEY. 9 p.m. Sunday, WHYY12.   LAURA Carmichael knows all about the Jan Brady comparisons. Carmichael, whose "Downton Abbey" character, Lady Edith Crawley, has gotten the short end of more sticks in four seasons than the "Brady Bunch" middle daughter could ever have imagined, doesn't mind a bit. "She's smart, she's bookish. I get it. I love that and I sort of read that and embraced that," Carmichael said in an interview during a PBS event in Beverly Hills last summer to promote the show's fifth season.

CITY COUNCIL finished off its final session of the year with grand overtures of jingle-bell ringing, flag waving, back slapping and a litany of bill passing before members broke for the holidays. Several new measures were introduced as well, to be debated in the coming year. The third time could be a charm for Councilman Bill Greenlee, who's pushing for paid sick leave for private companies. He introduced an ordinance yesterday that would require businesses with 10 or more workers to offer earned paid sick leave.

Since Newsies , the Walt-Disney-movie-turned-musical based on New York's Newsboy Strike of 1899 closes on Sunday, I will immediately say that if you like uplifting David-and-Goliath stories set to rousing music and filled with aggressive, gymnastics-propelled choreography, get tickets. Since Philadelphia also launches the 2014-15 national tour, I will offer my criticisms of a show that I enjoyed thoroughly, for as long as I could stand it. Alan Menken's music and Jack Feldman's lyrics strike a single note all night: yearning.

THE CRIMINAL GANG was ruthless and relentless: kidnapping and beating up victims, stealing money and property, and dealing drugs. What set them apart from an ordinary criminal cabal was not their greediness. What set them apart was that they were police. In the latest black eye on the Philadelphia Police Department, a 42-page federal indictment released yesterday describes in chilling language a "criminal organization" whose six members organized for the purpose of "generating money for the members through crimes including robbery, extortion, kidnapping and drug dealing and concealing those activities from law enforcement scrutiny.

SAY HELLO to a "person" who's rich, can buy a lot more political free speech than you can, and who now, apparently, has found religion. Behold the ever-more-powerful 21st-century American corporation - which yesterday continued its winning ways at the U.S. Supreme Court in two landmark rulings that came at the expense of women's health services and the power of organized labor. In one of the most closely watched cases of the 2013-14 term that ended yesterday, a divided high court ruled 5-4 that businesses - for religious reasons - can refuse to pay for their workers' birth control under Obamacare.

WASHINGTON - Kids, one thing you will learn in life, if you haven't already learned it, is that meetings rarely beget solutions, only more meetings. Thus, when your favorite baseball team starts holding them, it is usually a good time to begin investigating other sources of emotional fulfillment. Yesterday, when the doors to the visitor's clubhouse at Nationals Park were closed to the media, it was supposedly a thing, the same kind of thing as the radio interview in which Larry Bowa said the Phillies weren't playing like major leaguers, the kind of thing that carries folks with blogs and Twitter accounts and deadlines through news cycles, the kind of thing that adds an element of story to what would otherwise be another day spent chronicling the meaningless existence of a baseball team headed nowhere.
