We speak of more than one thing this day. It's mailbag day. A time to talk of some of the things that some of you, by your cards and letters, have let me know you're interested in talking about. Keep those cards and letters coming. It helps me answer the ever nagging question, "What'll I write about this week?" Nostalgia is the order of the day. A couple of letters have come across the old meat block that fall into the "why can't I get some of that good old stuff that I used to get before they started putting everything in plastic packages and I can't get anything good anymore" category.

Interest rates on short-term Treasury securities dropped about one-third of a percentage point in yesterday's auction, to the lowest levels in nine years. The Treasury Department sold $7.82 billion in three-month bills at an average discount rate of 5.32 percent, down from 5.64 percent last week. An additional $7.81 billion in six-month bills was sold at an average discount rate of 5.35 percent, down from 5.65 percent last week.

Some things that I see in supermarket meatcases would like to drive me crazy. More than a few meat markets use merchandising tricks that are more than a little unethical. They're downright dishonest. They ought to be illegal, but they're not. One of the classics, and the one that makes me the craziest - it makes me want to run out of the store, find a lawyer and file a class action suit - is one I call the "roasting chicken rip-off. " These are chickens labeled "Roasting Chickens" that are no larger than those labeled "Frying Chickens" but are priced 50 cents to 75 cents per pound MORE!

Although Comics Guy tries not to review the same book twice in a short period of time since there are so many quality books out there, I am breaking that rule with "The Boys. " Issue No. 17 reinforces the fact that there isn't another book like it on the stands. It includes perhaps the greatest, most memorable scene in comics this year, a scene so hilarious, Comics Guy was laughing out loud more than half an hour after he put it down. Which reminded Comics Guy that when he reviewed "The Boys" three months ago, I had focused on the (literally)

Night has fallen in Feltonville, ending for another day the Muslim fast of Ramadan. It is soup time at the Chicken Hut, a landmark for Philadelphia's Muslims that is part carryout, eat-in, grocery, butcher, bookstore and community center. "All the doors of hellfire are closed," explained owner Aimen Soudi Alqassabjy. It is time, he said last night, "for good deeds we like to do. One of the good deeds is to feed another fasting person. " So every customer or visitor after sunset gets a cup of turkey soup, and maybe some dates.

Frankie DiPietro looks out the front window of his Ninth Street butcher shop every day and sees nothing but the Rizz. DiPietro was one of 150 people who stood out in the Italian Market yesterday for a lunchtime ceremony to mark the completion of a giant mural that honors the late mayor. It took four months for a team of artists from the Philadelphia Anti- Graffiti Network to finish the 55-by-33-foot painting at Ninth and Montrose. It shows an all-business Frank L. Rizzo, 29 feet high, standing on guard in the Italian Market.

Yesterday's announcement of Cardinal John Krol's retirement as the archbishop of Philadelphia signals the end of an illustrious era in the Roman Catholic Church in the Philadelphia area. For almost 27 years His Eminence shepherded his Philadelphia flock with compassion, concern and caring. His leadership in maintaining and financing the Catholic school system in Philadelphia during difficult times was perhaps the cardinal's greatest contribution to the city. When he stepped down yesterday, he noted that the Philadelphia Catholic school system was the ninth largest system, Catholic or public, in the nation.

More twisted than Twin Peaks, more extreme than an out-there episode of The X-Files, Lars Von Trier's "Kingdom" series - filmed for Danish television and released in Parts I and, now, II in American arthouses - is weird, weird stuff. Set in a prematurely decaying modern hospital in Copenhagen, The Kingdom II picks up the fistful of plot threads from the long first installment: the misanthropic, malpracticing surgeon (Ernst-Hugo Jaregard); the hypochondriacal old lady who communicates with the hospital's ghosts; the Down Syndrome dishwashers in the hospital's basement, who seem to know everything that's going on; the creepy monster man-child (Udo Kier)

One of the featured tenors was in the kitchen at Franco & Luigi's Pastaria, warming up for a night at the opera. Frank Borda was flipping four fiery skillets filled with portobello mushrooms stuffed with sauteed broccoli rabe. "And we top that off with sharp provolone," Borda said as he sprinkled it on. "Try it, it'll make you nuts. " Borda, a bearded man in a white chef's hat and apron, was waiting for his singing partners. They filed in after their day jobs. Frank Munafo had just closed his Ninth Street butcher shop after a day of slicing veal cutlets and scallopini.
