Good riddance to the decades when leather-and-brass briefcases were the hallmark of chic business travel. Legions of their bearers did not find their classy looks worth their (substantial) weight in gold. Thank goodness for high-end manufacturers who mercifully mine the realms of tastefully wrought polyester and other lightweight synthetics to create stylishly functional business bags. Take the new 2.2-pound Booq Saddle Carbon Business Brief. The sleekly tapered, meticulously tailored polyester shoulder bag is spacious enough to accommodate a 15.6-inch laptop in its own padded compartment, with several books, file folders, electronic devices, a water bottle, coffee mug, and other accessories in an efficiently organized array of zippered, slip, and mesh pockets - some with designated duties.

A 30-year-old isn't over the hill, but may need a little jolt of something extra to get it to the next level. That's true for people - and with races, too. The Scott Coffee Moorestown Rotary 8K, a 31-year-old race in South Jersey, is getting that jolt this year by re-branding its race to hopefully attract and embrace new runners for its June 6 event. "We can't have alcohol in Moorestown but we can have coffee," said Bob Bickel, who is part of the race organization team. The race started out as the Moorestown Rotary 8K. "Scott Coffee" was added to the name after cofounder Scott Coffee died in 2006.

WITH PLENTY of preening self-portraits and pointless chatter with friends, 17-year-old Nasheen K. Anderson's Twitter feed at first looks like that of any typical teenager. But it doesn't take long before you find some jaw-dropping stuff. In one photo Anderson posted, a cat rests its head on a man's erect penis. Another shows a woman squirting milk from her naked breast into a coffee mug. Others show extreme close-ups of women's naked genitalia, Anderson flashing gang signs or showing a handgun jammed beneath a mattress, and a "family photo shoot" of a smiling woman pointing a handgun at four beaming school-age children.

THERE WILL be a new sheriff in NovaCareland in a few weeks, and one of the first things he will do after calling 1-800-MATTRES and putting the framed picture of the wife and kids he will never see on his office credenza, is to fill up his coffee mug, grab the remote, put his feet up on his desk and watch the 16 disaster movies produced and directed by Andy Reid and his coaching staff this season, including Thursday's night's 34-13 turnoverfest....

CASPER, Wyo. - Police released more details Saturday of a grisly murder-suicide at a Wyoming community college, saying a man shot his father in the head with a bow and arrow in front of a computer-science class not long after fatally stabbing his father's live-in girlfriend at their home a couple of miles away. Computer-science instructor James Krumm, 56, may have saved some of his students' lives Friday by giving them time to flee while trying to fend off his son, Christopher Krumm, 25, of Vernon, Conn., Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh said.

YOU PROBABLY give little thought to the mug that holds your morning cup of joe. For some, that vessel is a work of art unto itself. On Thursday morning, the Clay Studio, a gallery and retail space in Old City dedicated to handmade ceramics, hopes to change the way some local coffee drinkers think about their own usual mugs. During the studio's Guerrilla Mug Assault, volunteers will gather at six secret locations to surprise morning commuters by replacing their usual cup with a one-of-a-kind handmade mug. Five hundred mugs crafted by 50 artists, many from the Philadelphia area, will be given away.

My mother was constantly in motion. In the evenings, she would make our clothes at the dining room table, the sewing machine whirring late into the night. The following morning, all evidence of the nighttime sewing would have disappeared, except for the new pair of pajamas waiting on the table. Every day, Mom would do laundry, wash dishes, wipe countertops, vacuum. At least once a month, she would run a cloth doused in Liquid Gold over the faux wood of the kitchen cabinets.
