On a lazy August afternoon in 1995, former Phillies star Johnny Callison and his wife, Dianne, were having lunch at a Bucks County tavern when a familiar topic arose. "The bartender was talking about how someone had just missed it recently," Dianne Callison recalled not long afterward. "I said I hope that never happened. " Their topic was a Phillies-Pirates game at Forbes Field in 1963. That day, Callison had pulled off one of baseball's rarest feats - collecting a single, double, triple and homer.

THE FOUR pages of photos with captions dealing with the Middle East crisis (Jan. 8) comes up short on two counts - balance and relevance. The word "cycle" in the title "Cycle of War" suggests that violence goes both ways. However, despite passing references to violence against Israelis by Jennifer Midberry on the first page, none of the photos or captions show the toll taken by the conflict on Israeli victims. It is also ironic that Midberry's piece appeared immediately after the horrendous attacks by two suicide bombers in Tel Aviv on Jan. 5. This is mentioned in one sentence.

'CYCLE OF WAR," by Jennifer Midberry, was one of the most biased photo essays on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict I have ever seen. Ms. Midberry apparently had no desire to show pictures of bloodied Israeli children who are regularly targeted for murder by Palestinian suicide bombers, so her readers could read or view a balanced story. Judging from her pictorial, the only victims are the "poor" Palestinians. When victim (Israeli) and murderer (Palestinian fanatics) are on the same moral level, then the reader has to conclude both sides are wrong.

Todd Bell talks about things coming full cycle. About how he and linebacker Al Harris, another ex-Chicago Bear, missed the Super Bowl following season- long contract holdouts in 1985 and how both are getting a second chance in the twilight of their careers. Bell, who played weakside linebacker last year for coach Buddy Ryan, also could have applied his "full-cycle" theory to his current status as the Eagles' starting strong safety. In 1984, Bell was a Pro Bowl selection at strong safety.

After two years of being called a tyrant and a dictator, President Obama returns to Washington from a five-day overseas trip to find he has become a weakling. Would-be opponents such as Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, and Sarah Palin had been trying out this somewhat contradictory line of attack for more than a month as Obama gave mixed signals about events in Egypt and Libya. But the "weak leader" charge gained traction last weekend as Obama chose to launch the attack on Moammar Gadhafi's forces while on an excellent adventure with his family in South America.

Fine voices have enriched the city this month, including last week's recitals by countertenor Drew Minter and baritone Tom Krause. This weekend, you can hear the inimitable mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade at the Port of History Museum at Penn's Landing, courtesy of the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, in a program of Mozart, Mahler, Faure, Gounod, Copland and Bernstein. In danger of being overlooked amid the plethora of concerts is another important vocal event, at the Ethical Society on Rittenhouse Square, where George Massey will sing Schubert's wrenching cycle Die Winterreise (Winter Journey)

Chris Singleton was not about to let a second chance at hitting for the cycle get away. Singleton became the first rookie to hit for the cycle in the majors since 1985, but Carlos Beltran's arm and bat led the visiting Kansas City Royals over the Chicago White Sox, 8-7, in 10 innings last night. Singleton, a double short of the cycle June 23 against Minnesota, twisted his left ankle on a first-inning single for the White Sox. He got taped between innings and stayed in the game, but was hobbling to the trainer's room after going 5-for-6.

Numbers buried deep in a recent Quinnipiac University poll could play a larger role in determining the winner of Pennsylvania's gubernatorial race than the 6-point lead Tom Corbett holds over Dan Onorato. With an open seat and the Democrats' significant voter-registration edge, it's likely the race will tighten by November. But it is, as everyone seems to agree, Corbett's to lose. Corbett, the Republican attorney general, leads Onorato, the Democratic Allegheny County executive, 43 percent to 37 percent.

William Tennent senior Chris Glatt hit for the cycle on Tuesday to lead the Panthers past Pennridge, 17-4, in a Suburban One National game as the winners collected a season-high 18 hits. She needed a double in the seventh inning to complete the cycle. "To tell the truth, I was going for the double the last time up," said Glatt. "I was hoping we'd bat around in the inning so I would get a chance for it. I got three straight balls on me, next pitch was ball, but I swung at it anyway and got a strike, so I didn't have to walk.

CLEVELAND - I was standing in the shade of the gazebo where Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy with an Airsoft gun, was gunned down by a Cleveland police officer on a cold November day in 2014, when another journalist walked over and muttered the news that three lawmen had just been gunned down in Baton Rouge. The nation's downward spiral of violence and rage had just taken another shocking spin, as the nation's social and TV networks began to crackle with fresh anxiety. And yet here at Cudell Rec Center playground on Cleveland's west side - a landmark in the twisting road from Ferguson to Dallas and Baton Rouge - there was an almost surreal calm.

Following a long campaign that drew support from both revenue-hungry local-spending advocates and paternalist nonprofits and foundations, Philadelphia City Council has approved a 1 1/2-cent-per-ounce tax on soft drinks, whether naturally or artificially sweetened, on top of an existing 8 percent city sales tax, adding about a dollar to the cost of a two-liter bottle. Lay aside for now the specter of nanny-statism (former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg chipped in for a pro-tax ad campaign)

Erica Zaveta didn't know whether she could make a career out of cycling. She set goals throughout college but was never certain she could reach them. After winning her first of five Division I national titles, the doubt left her mind. "There were a lot of years where I thought, 'I think I can get it, but I don't really know,' " Zaveta said. "And when I finally got that win, I was like, 'OK, this is possible. I can have a future in this.' " Following her success at Lees-McRae College, the Erwinna, Pa., native's cycling career continued into the professional ranks.

I'm always amazed at how much space two small dogs can take up on a queen-size bed. And it's surprising how immoveable a 12-pound and a 6-pound dog can be. Once Gemma is latched onto my left side and Harper is snuggled into the crook of my knees, it's almost impossible for me to move for the rest of the night. And when they aren't snugged right up against me, they are sprawling in a way that also makes it impossible to move. So why let them on the bed? A survey of 150 people by the Center for Sleep Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona found that 56 percent of those surveyed who were pet owners allow their animals to snooze in the bedroom.

Too many women give up on in vitro fertilization too soon, a new study suggests. After analyzing more than 250,000 in vitro fertilization attempts by more than 150,000 women over nearly a decade, researchers found that women could keep increasing their chances of having a live birth through up to nine IVF cycles, according to a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association. What's more, the researchers defined an IVF cycle more expansively. Instead of considering each attempt to transfer one or more embryos into the womb as an individual cycle, study authors counted each attempt to stimulate the ovaries and retrieve eggs as the beginning of a new cycle.

Waffiyyah Murray doesn't often come across a kid who doesn't want to ride a bike. But parents are often concerned about safety, especially in congested parts of Philadelphia. Nationwide, the number of students walking and biking to school has steadily declined, from 41 percent in 1969 to 13 percent in 2001, according to the National Center for Safe Routes to School. Meanwhile, the number of children who go to school by car nearly tripled, from 20 to 55 percent. Murray, 30, has a psychology degree from Temple University and was born and raised in Philadelphia.

Question: Is there any way (other than videotaping their conversations) to explain to your 21-year-old daughter that you think her boyfriend is verbally abusive and manipulative? I don't see every instance, but I see enough to know that he manipulates her and punishes her - by pouting and going off with friends and drinking - when she disagrees with him or doesn't go along with his plans. Her sisters have seen them interact more directly, and we all have explained our concerns. She says we only see the bad things and don't realize how good he is to her in between their fights.
