I'D LIKE to comment on Stephanie Myers' reaction to Rich Kessler's reaction to Mike Bickings. I am a vegetarian. I don't like the idea that anything suffered to go on my plate, either. However, I think Rich's point about Mike's letter was not whether or not it's right to kill an animal, but that Mike's letter was that of a sick mind. How could anyone think that it's acceptable to kill hunters when they think that killing animals is wrong? What part of that argument is a respect for life?

It's been less than a month since Michael Vincent Puppio Jr. was appointed to the township Board of Commissioners, and already he's seen a popular restaurant and polling place in his ward heavily damaged by fire, fielded complaints about foliage behind a business, and had residents ask him to shovel their walks for free. "Other than that, it's been kind of quiet, allowing me to get acclimated," said the new Second Ward commissioner, who acknowledges that his political feet are not completely wet yet. Puppio was appointed to the board on Dec. 12 to replace John J. McFadden, who resigned in November to begin a four-year term on the Delaware County Council.

The formula in Chain Reaction is familiar, but at least it has been entrusted to a proven technician. Andrew Davis made his bones in the mayhem market with Under Siege, which confounded critics by demonstrating that it was possible to make a passable action movie with the considerable handicap of Steven Seagal's presence. Davis moved to another level with The Fugitive, a tour de force that remains by far the best film inspired by a television series. After an erratic and poorly received plunge into comedy with Steal Big, Steal Little, Davis opted to steal from one of the best - himself.

More call boxes, bright green "Accident Ahead" signs and Sonic Nap Alerts are some of the latest additions along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, efforts to make the highway safer. "About one-half of all fatalities on the turnpike are a direct result of what we call inattentive driving: people falling asleep, daydreaming etc.," said the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission's executive director of marketing, Michael Kennedy. "Many people drive right off the road. " Sonic Nap Alerts - SNAPs - are being installed in grooves on the shoulders to help inattentive drivers, Kennedy said.

  Nearly six months after a tractor-trailer rammed her family's car on the New Jersey Turnpike, the teenager who survived while sitting in the front seat is still coming to grips with the loss of her whole family. Though the headlines of the fiery Dec. 27 crash in Mount Laurel have faded, the tragedy is just starting to sink in for Nicole Mallett, said her uncle, Martin Caesar. Traffic was snarled for hours after the truck hit Mallett's Toyota Camry sedan, which was travelling south between Exits 4 and 5. Her father, mother, brother, and dog were killed.

The date 9/11 denotes not a single event, but rather a chain reaction touched off by unimaginable criminal acts. The intervening decade's theater has grappled with various links on that chain. Anne Nelson's The Guys debuted off-Broadway in December 2001, less than three months after the attacks, and has been in production somewhere ever since. In it, an editor helps the chief of the Fire Department of New York write eulogies for firefighters killed in the Twin Towers collapse.

Controversy flared the day after the Belmont Stakes, when John Velazquez accused Rajiv Maragh of careless riding in a chain reaction that nearly knocked Velazquez off Animal Kingdom early in the race Saturday. Velazquez also suggested Sunday morning that Maragh, on 30-1 shot Isn't He Perfect , may have deliberately veered left to impede Mucho Macho Man , on whom he lost the mount after finishing sixth in the Preakness. "That's what I think," Velazquez said on a conference call.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - Tiger Woods limped off the golf course and into an uncertain future. His return in The Players Championship from what he had described as a "minor injury" lasted only nine holes Thursday. Woods withdrew because of pain in his left knee and Achilles tendon, but not before taking 42 shots for his worst nine-hole score on the TPC Sawgrass course. "I'm having a hard time walking," he said. Woods flexed his left knee after hitting tee shots. He took baby steps to climb out of a bunker.

The Big East's batting average for the first weekend of the NCAA tournament finished below the Mendoza Line, which brought out the critics, led by Charles Barkley. The former 76er, doing studio commentary for CBS, has referred to the conference as the "Small East" and the "Big Least" and suggested on more than one occasion that the league is overrated. More than a few critics have echoed Barkley's thoughts. But is it? The numbers would imply that it is, at least for this season.
