Neighborhood gangs paint the walls in University City High School with graffiti, marking their turf inside the school. Students fight at any provocation. The adults in the school aren't lagging behind. Backbiting and shouting matches among staffers intensify every day. While the school is coming off wins as the city's public high school boys' and girls' basketball champions, its triumph is tarnished by the chaos that rules the day at University City. And despite repeated visits from School District honchos and city officials, bedlam continues.

Today, government means the delivery of benefits to the entitled, paid for by the overburdened. Too often, we as a society believe government owes us something, but we don't want to pay for it. How distant seems John F. Kennedy's appeal for a citizenry mindful of what it can do for its country. As a whole, these changes have produced a political system disengaged from the people, and a people disengaged from issues and politics. We are left with a political system that cannot lead and a public that cannot and will not follow.

Hammonton can pass. The Blue Devils have a strong-armed quarterback in 6-foot-3 junior Christian Mortellite. It's just that Hammonton, like most high school teams, prefers to pass on its own terms - as a change of pace, and in play-action situations. Timber Creek's defense wants to force Hammonton into long-yardage situations so the Chargers can unleash a pass rush that features tackle Greg Webb and ends Dajuan Drennon and Myles Nash. The key to this game could be the battle between Hammonton's synchronized, wing-T offense and Timber Creek's sturdy run defense.

Visiting justices from Canada's high court sat in on Monday's immigration arguments before the Supreme Court - and after their 90-minute education in the current state of American jurisprudence, our neighbors to the north would be forgiven if they had fantasies of building a border wall of their own. The Senate's refusal to confirm a replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia has left the U.S. high court evenly split and increasingly paralyzed....

Amid the suburban landscape of Riverside in Burlington County, there is, indeed, serenity. It began as a do-it-yourself project, initiated by my friends, Debbie and Sean, who were motivated to create a placid setting devoid of chaos and the concerns of the world surrounding them. Captivated by the mountains in West Almond, N.Y., which are a frequent camping destination for this family, myself included, Debbie and Sean created a backyard that brought back the sounds and smells of camp.

Finish this sentence: If you give a mouse a cookie. . . . Many Americans with children or grandchildren born since 1985 - and, most likely, the children themselves - know the answer. Obviously, the mouse will want a glass of milk, his demands will increase according to his erratic whims, and all manner of chaos will break out. The Arden Theatre is quite pleased to bring some of that chaos from the page to the stage with Jody Davidson's adaptation of Laura Joffe Numeroff's ubiquitous picture book.

DESPITE FIERCE competition from a colorful Rogues Gallery that is arguably the best in comics, The Joker will continue to stand alone as Batman's No. 1 adversary. "That seems to be the case," said Image Comics' Erik Larsen. "Not for any thematic reason - he's not a mirror image of Batman or any of that nonsense - it's more a sense of him being the coolest character of the lot. " "No doubt," said 12 Gauge Comics' Keven Gardner. "Batman is order and The Joker lives to create chaos.

Man Man don't so much create order out of chaos as harness chaos' power in the service of euphoria. Singer Ryan Kattner, a.k.a. Honus Honus, calls it "structured chaos," and the Philadelphia band's live shows are notorious for creating visceral, communal experiences. "I think that connection [with the audience], for us, is a mission statement and is really important," Kattner says from Los Angeles, where he was working on a video for the album Life Fantastic 's "Piranhas Club.

Like some unfailing karmic process, chaos follows calamity in India. Over the past week and more, the country has repeatedly been told that it is well nigh impossible to predict an earthquake. Fair enough - but whatever happened to the crisis management drill? [Throughout the crisis,] information has been slow to flow. Till early afternoon on January 26, the government was talking of "200-odd people" having died. . . . The National Centre for Calamity Management, which should have become the nodal agency within minutes of the seismic storm, is a body that exists only in policy proposals.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: OK, so my brother and sister-in-law had an emergency and needed someone to watch the three kids. My partner and I volunteered. We are childless. We are also really gullible and maybe think we are more capable than we really are. We decided to take them all out to dinner, just so someone else had to deal with the carnage afterward. They are great kids, a ton of fun, but they are 3-year-old twins and a 5-year-old sister. Things were loud.

WILDLY BUT MILDLY, America on Monday celebrated her 240th birthday, validated by a birth certificate issued in Philadelphia. The Declaration was followed by the Constitution guaranteeing freedom of speech (thank you), freedom of the press ( really thank you) and the right to peaceably assemble. Key word: peaceably . This brings us to the Democratic National Convention and the city's schizophrenic approach to it. Citing a "notion of fairness," Mayor Kenney merrily signed a bill to "decriminalize nuisance offenses," such as disorderly conduct, failure to disperse, public drunkenness and obstructing the highway.

He was the architect of chaos and he gloried in it. He was earthy and profane, a blunt, bullying genius in the gladiatorial arena of professional football, all bluster and bravado, and as subtle as a forearm shiver, and certainly no candidate for a diplomatic post. But Buddy Ryan, who died Tuesday at 85, revolutionized the fine art of the carnivorous defense as it had been played in the National Football League. It was based on a simple, immutable mathematical equation: Bring one more than they can block.

In a brilliant and riveting Julius Caesar , the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival presents Shakespeare's depiction of the fear of impending political chaos. In this play - written in 1599, when Queen Elizabeth was nearing her end - we meet Caesar, as well as his rivals, conspirators, and common citizens, a virtual tableau of everyone touched by the struggle for power. Actually, Caesar appears in only three scenes (though he hangs on as a ghost). Keith Hamilton Cobb captures his imperious hauteur.

Here's a feel-good economic story. It's still being written, and it won't have a storybook ending, but given that it involves Washington, we should be thrilled it doesn't end in tragedy. Puerto Rico is the story. The island's finances and economy are a wreck. The territory's government and public institutions have amassed a stunning amount of debt over the years and are now choking on the principal and interest payments. Last year, the island shelled out 40 percent of its tax revenue making these payments, compared with 5 percent for the typical state.

When Deputy Fire Chief Anthony Sneidar arrived at the scene of the fatal Amtrak derailment last year, he was blocked by a swarm of police vehicles. It had been 15 minutes since Train 188 had crashed rounding the Frankford Curve in the city's Port Richmond section. Despite the live wires on the tracks, Philadelphia police officers were extricating the wounded from the wreckage. Sneidar was there to bring order to the chaos by seeing that victims were rapidly assessed and taken by ambulance to the right trauma center for their needs.

This is how confident Donald Trump's Pennsylvania supporters are that he'll coast to victory Tuesday: Confident enough to spend the final stretch mastering the impenetrable rules that govern the Republican National Convention, lining up hundreds of poll workers, and strategizing about their real challenge - getting voters to cast primary ballots next week for pro-Trump delegates. "He's going to win the popular vote without question," said Phyllis Zemble, a former Lower Merion Township commissioner and Democrat who turned Republican to vote for Trump.

THE PERPETUALLY congested lanes of the Vine Street Expressway were transformed into a terrifying hellscape yesterday morning, as flames devoured a school bus' skeleton and Pennsylvania State Troopers exchanged gunfire with an armed suspect. The hair-raising episode began with a routine car stop over an expired registration tag, and ended with Trooper Patrick Casey taking a bullet to the shoulder - and a 17-year-old alleged gunman behind bars. The teenager, identified Wednesday morning as Giovanni Cotto, was charged as an adult last night with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assaulting a law-enforcement officer and related offenses.
