WE HAVE received much advice about how to write this editorial about Gil Spencer, who receives the George Polk Career award, a very big deal in journalism, in New York today. This advice was that the editorial itself be "Spencerian. " Anyone who remembers Gil Spencer's nine years as editor at the Philadelphia Daily News (from 1975 to 1984) knows what that means. It should contain a mention of ferrets. It should be elegant, self-deprecating and funny. It should be brilliantly written, as befits a Pulitzer Prize winner for editorial writing himself and someone who, according to the award's citation, "inspired and nurtured some of this generation's finest editors, reporters and columnists.

The 76ers traded Andre Iguodala to Denver in the middle of the Summer Olympics as part of the massive four-team trade that landed the Sixers center Andrew Bynum and shooting guard Jason Richardson. On Wednesday, Iguodala and the Nuggets are scheduled to open the regular season at the Wells Fargo Center. "I really haven't thought about" returning to Philadelphia, Iguodala told Ben Hochman of the Denver Post on Monday. "I'm really trying to focus on what I can control, and that's our mind-set.

A person with knowledge of the negotiations told the Associated Press that Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw has agreed to succeed George Karl as coach of the Denver Nuggets. The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday night because the deal hadn't been officially announced. The Nuggets called a news conference for Tuesday afternoon to introduce their new coach. The Denver Post first announced the agreement with Shaw, and the former Phil Jackson pupil told the newspaper he has been "prepared by the best of the best" for his first NBA head coaching job. Shaw is a former NBA guard and longtime assistant NBA coach who has interviewed about a dozen times for head coaching positions but kept coming up short until Monday.

Rex Babin, 49, the Sacramento Bee editorial cartoonist whose piercing pen skewered presidents, governors and self-important legislators, died Friday at his home after a long battle with cancer. Mr. Babin's favorite cartoons were often his most poignant. After the attacks on the World Trade Center towers in 2001, he drew Libertas slumped and weeping with her head in her hands. After Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger III landed US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River, Mr. Babin imagined the passengers standing on the wings with the hands of God reaching down to keep the jet from sinking.

IT TOOK 40 years for Original Six rivals Boston and the New York Rangers to face off again in the playoffs. Beantown's Bruins seem intent on wrapping up the long-awaited get-together in a hurry. Daniel Paille scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:31 left in the third period - after defenseman Johnny Boychuk got the Bruins even earlier in the frame - and Boston put the Rangers on the brink of elimination with a 2-1 victory in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series last night at Madison Square Garden.

It is my understanding that this column is released weekly for Sunday publication, or any time thereafter that suits those newspapers simple-minded enough to buy it. One of these days after I say something like that, I'm going to break out in spots and my tongue will remain stuck to the roof of my mouth forever. It wasn't a very nice thing to say, nor was it accurate. The newspapers that buy and publish this column have made a profoundly compassionate decision. They felt sorry for me after being told about Mrs. Spencer.

It won't be Troy Vincent after all. DeMaurice Smith was elected the new executive director of the NFL Players Association yesterday, succeeding the late Gene Upshaw. Smith was chosen as the union's fourth leader in its 41-year history, and follows Upshaw, who died in August. The NFL outsider, who has served as an attorney in Washington, is challenged with the task of leading the union into a critical new era. Several NFL player representatives announced the winner as they left the closed-door meeting in Hawaii following the vote.

BRONCOS LINEBACKER Von Miller offered no details about his pending drug case and possible four-game suspension, repeatedly invoking the NFL's confidentiality clause to deflect questions during his session with reporters yesterday. Miller said everything at training camp, which begins today, will be business as usual, while he waits to hear if he'll be banned beginning Aug. 30 - the day after Denver's final preseason game. Reporters directed 18 questions toward Miller, each angling at a different way of trying to get him to offer a detail - any detail - about the drug case that will cost him the first four games of the season - including a Sept.

SIXERS CENTER Andrew Bynum has completed his rehabilitation from season-ending knee surgery and is set to resume basketball workouts next week. Bynum's agent, David Lee, told the Associated Press last night there's "not a concern in the world" that Bynum will be ready for training camp. He also said he had no conversations with the Sixers and does not expect any kind of deal with the team before the 7-foot center becomes a free agent on July 1. Lee says Bynum will get a jump on his regular offseason workouts by starting next week in Atlanta instead of his usual time in August.

There aren't just four-letter curse words. In running, at least, there's a three-letter one, too - Jog. It's a dated term, a leftover from the first U.S. running boom that coincided with bell-bottoms and disco, when fewer than 2,000 people ran the New York City Marathon and when women were told not to run because it would ruin their femininity and reproductive health. Women were banned from running certain distances because it was believed they couldn't physically handle it. Using the term jogging now is either like calling your pants slacks (pants that, if they look good, are "sharp," and probably bought at Strawbridge & Clothier)

A PERSON with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press on Monday that linebacker Joe Mays is likely out for the season after suffering a serious injury to his lower left leg in the Denver Broncos' 34-14 win over the New Orleans Saints. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team had yet to address the injury. The Denver Post first reported the extent of Mays' injury, saying he suffered a fractured fibula just above his left ankle. Mays was injured while blocking for punt returner Trindon Holliday in the fourth quarter Sunday night when a Saints player inadvertently leg-whipped him, and he had to be helped off the field.

This story has been modified.   When it began, Facebook was the world's greatest free high school yearbook. Now, for some, it's gone pay-to-play. A Facebook policy announced in late April called Promoted Posts invites owners of some Facebook pages (those with more than 400 "likes," expressions of interest from other users) to pay for expanded "reach" to their audience. Hobbyists, enthusiasts, musicians, and other individuals run these pages, as do sports teams, political campaigns, nonprofits, and businesses (including The Inquirer)
