The 1988 Cadillac Eldorado is a tour de force in frenetic retrogression. Cadillac labored mightily and, in less than one-third of the time it would normally take, brought forth a new Eldorado that looks older than the car it replaces. This reactionary revision was by design. Like the Eldorado's more powerful engine, this use of older, more traditional Cadillac styling cues is a major element in the luxury carmaker's strategy for a much-needed sales renaissance. Cadillac sales have been hurt in this decade by radical downsizing and a loss of styling individuality, developments that turned off the car's 60ish clientele.

The Rev. George Charles Hoeh was a dynamic and well-loved Episcopal priest, a self-made millionaire and a thoroughly exuberant member of the human race. Even the detective investigating his murder remarked, "I haven't talked to anybody who didn't like him. " In his priestly life, Father Hoeh walked among the flock of his small, secure neighborhood parish in Brooklyn and served as confessor, comforter and social conscience. But he walked more dangerous paths in private life - on those frequent occasions when he abandoned Brooklyn for the relaxation of his commodious retreat in the affluent Sweetwater section of Mullica Township, N.J. It was there, on a Friday in June last year, that Father Hoeh, 58, carelessly invited home a stranger, a young man who called himself Paul and said he was from Minnesota.

Today's topic is auto sex. This is not the sort of discussion that got former U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders into trouble. Nor are we referring to any "act of darkness" (Shakespeare's phrase) conducted in a back seat. No, this is about the (mostly) chaste affection that American men and women have for their cars and suburban trucks. It is also about the "feminization of America," which has become the gentle way of saying that women have taken over. I am no sociologist, but it is widely accepted that our vehicles provide us with loving companionship in addition to transportation.

This was not manna from heaven. This was $24,147.79 dropped in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven store on West Street Road in Warminster. The money was scooped up by Ralph Triboletti Jr. What Triboletti, 53, did after that, or as authorities put it, what he didn't do after that, got him into trouble. Triboletti, by his own admission, failed to tell police, the store or the bank about his find until 16 hours later, when Warminster police tracked him down and knocked on his door in the Meadowood Apartments, just down West Street Road from the convenience store.
