A SMALL PATCH of East Birch Street in Kensington was pocked with at least 15 crudely drawn yellow circles Sunday afternoon - proof that whoever killed a 33-year-old man there really wanted him dead. Hours earlier, the circles had contained bullet casings as homicide investigators worked the scene of a brazen execution-style slaying that awakened the neighborhood around 4:15 a.m. Cops say someone opened fire on a man sitting at the wheel of a Mercury Grand Marquis, striking him in the head, face, and neck.

The conventional wisdom is that millennials are not as enamored of cars as Generation Xers such as myself or Baby Boomers who came before us. These kids today get their driver's licenses later than age 16 - if at all - and spend all their time with (pauses to ask 15-year-old Sturgis Kid 4.0 what kind of phone he's using) their Samsung S6s. That is, when we're not yelling at them to stay off our lawns. But there's still that segment of young America that spends its time creating new car designs, often while daydreaming in math class or ignoring the latest English lesson.

If fame is measured in name recognition, then Lew Blum must be considered one of Philadelphia's biggest celebrities. Not the most popular, mind you. He is not liked, not even a little, judging by the torrent of vitriol heaped on him in online Yelp reviews. "The lowest of the low," is one of the nicer comments you'll find there. But it's a name guaranteed to evoke a nod of recognition, and no small shiver of fear, by anyone who parks on the streets of Philadelphia. The name "Lew Blum" can be seen in large, blue capital letters on the 36-by-36-inch signs that hang by the thousands in parking lots, on garage doors, and near driveways and loading docks, from Plymouth Meeting to the Delaware state line, giving fair warning that UNAUTHORIZED VEHICLES WILL BE TOWED.

Five Delaware Valley University wrestlers and their coach were among dozens of people injured Sunday night in Las Vegas when a driver allegedly drove intentionally onto a crowded sidewalk, killing a 32-year-old Arizona woman. The students, along with Steve Cantrell, the university's director of athletics and head wrestling coach, were treated at a local hospital, according to the Bucks County university. The men, in Las Vegas for a wrestling tournament, the Desert Duals, suffered "mostly bumps, bruises, and a few cuts from the glass," said Laurie Ward, chief marketing and communications officer for the school.

Rapid technological progress, accompanied by the increasing standardization of what once was sold as costly optional equipment, is upsetting the notion of traditional automotive luxury. I've written this before - much to the chagrin of many in the car industry, particularly executives who cling to the eroding but still profitable idea that "luxury" is reserved for those truly wealthy enough to afford it, or aspirant buyers willing to incur enormous debt to acquire it. I am hereby restating my argument and offering as proof Exhibit A - the 2016 Kia Optima SX Limited sedan.

If you've ever had gum stuck to your car's flooring or seats, you know it can lead to a sticky situation. Eliminating gum from the interior of your car can be extremely difficult. Although a quick search online reveals dozens of ways to remove gum from car seats and carpets, there doesn't appear to be a universally accepted solution. It's a job not even veteran detailer James Carter has totally conquered. "I still haven't mastered getting gum out," said Carter, owner of Paradise Mobile Detail in Las Vegas.

A 15-year-old boy found shot dead in North Philadelphia on Friday was identified Saturday as Xavier Stern, authorities said. Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said Stern had been on probation for assault. Chitwood said that Stern had not been seen since Nov. 22, when he left his home in Upper Darby following a family argument. Stern was on probation for assaulting a fellow school student and had been wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet as a requirement of probation, but he removed the bracelet following the argument, Chitwood said.
