Most Dodgers fans, even those rare but hearty Angelenos who manage to sit through an entire nine innings, probably never imagined they'd have to endure another split as painful as the team's 1950s breakup with Brooklyn. But that's exactly what's happening now in L.A., where the legendary team's owners are in the midst of a divorce as ugly as Jonathan Broxton's ERA against the Phillies. The bitter split between Frank and Jamie McCourt is a big reason why the 2010 Dodgers have disappointed.

IDON'T support the ban on divorce that Sen. Fumo made even in jest because I'm the product of parents who stayed together for the kids. I don't see the correlation between forcing children to grow up in loveless, disrespectful, sometimes violent homes and how that will keep them out of poverty. Adults do need to take responsibility for their actions, and I understand the point of trying to create a stable family, but I still don't agree. I left home at 18 because I couldn't stand my parents' self-absorption with their marital issues and all the fighting.

Eddie Fisher was the first Philly teen idol, a little kid with a big tenor voice who got the first of the mega-buck celebrity endorsements - a million-dollar contract pushing Coca-Cola. But this son of hardscrabble South Philadelphia is best remembered for the actresses, showgirls and socialites who beat a path to his dressing room door, and for his three celebrity wives: Debbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Taylor and Connie Stevens. LAS VEGAS - Eddie Fisher, Philadelphia's prince of song, spent 12 minutes in divorcing ex-wife Debbie Reynolds.

Gwen Florio is a former Inquirer staff writer who lives in Missoula, Mont. Breaking up just got a whole lot harder on your wallet to do. You already know who's to blame. The same guy who ruined things for golfers. Used to be a million-dollar purse was what separated the major golf tournaments from, say, the Philadelphia Open. Then along came Tiger, creating his own weather as it were, payouts growing as his fame grew, his fame growing as his salary grew, all of it adding up to $100 million-plus annually for him and leaving everybody else in the rough.

WE AMERICANS aren't very good at being hard on ourselves. A glance at the cover of popular (mostly women's) magazines would lead you to believe that the average person is wracked with guilt about (1) sub-par job performance, (2) less-than-stellar parenting skills, (3) inadequacy in intimate relationships and (4) poor body image. The casual observer would be forced to conclude that we hardy descendants of immigrant stock are dissatisfied with failure and willing to make sacrifices in the name of an honorable (but ambiguous)

It sounded like a scene from a horror movie. A middle schooler comes home from playing basketball and finds his parents' bodies. Both are dead, both mutilated by a chainsaw. The gruesome murder-suicide in Lower Moreland on Tuesday orphaned the couple's three sons, and shocked a close-knit Montgomery County community that knew Nicole and Christopher Peppelmans as caring and attentive parents. Nicole Peppelman, 43, had also been choked and stabbed, coroner Walter Hofman said Wednesday.

I SUPPORT Sen. Fumo's legislation to ban divorce. I understand his motivation for introducing the bill, but now that he's brought it up, the state should look deeper into the impact of divorce, especially on families with children. Children of divorced parents and unwed mothers are far more likely to grow up in poverty, especially in minority communities. Making it more difficult for parents to divorce would not only strengthen the institution of marriage (gay or straight), but also help improve the standard of living for thousands of children.

One last in-your-face move from Britain's Princess Diana. She announced yesterday that she'd divorce Prince Charles - before the royal family, apparently, got wind of her decision. Diana's spokeswoman issued a brief statement last night: "The Princess of Wales has agreed to Prince Charles' request for a divorce. "The Princess will continue to be involved in all decisions relating to the children and will remain at Kensington Palace with offices in St. James's Palace. "The Princess of Wales will retain the title and be known as Diana, Princess of Wales.

It is really distressing to find normally open-minded columnists like Ruth Duskin Feldman, in her Feb. 8 article "Divorce's nastiness," continuing to espouse, through the examples used, the fiction that only men are the culprits. The three examples she used are all of women who are badgered and harassed. What of all of the men who are just as frequently the victims of the woman who wants out regardless of what it costs the man? I have been in the role of marriage counselor and marital therapist for many, many years and have yet to see the honorable male get an equitable post- marriage arrangement without spending hundreds or thousands of dollars to arrive at such a state - if he ever does.

IF ONLY IT were a police officer, a family friend or uncle, any adult in the world who could have found them instead, and spared a boy from a horror he'll never forget. The eldest son of Christopher and Nicole Peppelman was alone, though, when he found his parents dead Tuesday afternoon, a bloody chain saw beside them in the Lower Moreland, Montgomery County, house where they'd once been happy. He's 14 and has two little brothers. Now it's up to the adults who are still here to help get him through it, because it's probably too late to lie about it. "I'm not ever sure there's an adult explanation for this tragedy," said the Rev. Eric Carswell of the Bryn Athyn Church, where the two younger Peppelman boys attend school.

You might say the celeb couple's relationship's on-again, off-again. The "Baywatch" babe, ex to Tommy Lee and Kid Rock , married gambling man Salomon in 2007. Two months later, they split, then had their union annulled. By January 2014, they remarried. Last July, they filed for divorce.

Alil Vardar's The Divorcees Club proves one thing: The French are no more sophisticated than we are. Sure, they can boast the literary brilliance of novelist Michel Houellebecq and the biting satire of Charlie Hebdo magazine, but their biggest theatrical hit of the last two decades hasn't been the intellectually loaded dramas of Yasmina Reza ( Art , God of Carnage ), but Vardar's mindless 2003 comedy. The raunchy, riotous, Americanized U.S. premiere at Penn's Landing Playhouse shows why. The Divorcees Club starts with a too-familiar situation: Bethany (Aileen Goldberg)

What's worse? Being traded in after 34 years by your Broadway producer husband for his decades-younger producing partner, or writing a musical revue about it? I'm going to go with writing the revue, Til Divorce Do Us Part , because getting dumped is painful, and while Ruthe Ponturo's ex seems like a real cad, at least without this show she still had her dignity. Ponturo attempts broad appeal, with tunes aping Cabaret or Oklahoma , but all that forced cheer becomes relentless, and after 26 songs, including "The Divorce Dirge," "The Other Woman," and "Holidays Suck," this empathy cocktail gets a very bitter taste.

Neil Young's show at the Academy of Music on Thursday night served as a lesson on the perils of the intermission. After an absolutely sublime first half, the magical vibe went missing during a 25-minute bathroom break, and for the final hour the 68-year-old Young was inconsistent, rambling, and only intermittently brilliant. Strolling on stage in jeans and a flannel shirt, Young played most of the solo acoustic show seated, with seven guitars and a banjo within his reach. Not to mention a grand piano to his left, an upright to his right, and a pump organ behind him. There was an elephant in the impeccable-sounding 157-year-old room.

Mariah Carey silences hub? What makes a celeb divorce even juicier? Hearing the aggrieved couple vent in words unflattering and rude. Alas, we may be denied that pleasure in the Mariah Carey - Nick Cannon breakup. TMZ says they have signed a confidentiality agreement that gives Mariah serious hand. If he talks about the divorce, he pays a fine. Carey's allowed to share (her side) of the story. Though the breakup was announced only a couple of days ago, TMZ claims the divorce is a done deal and the lawyers have hashed out an agreement.

The divorce album is one of pop's strangest quasi-traditions, treating the rights, wrongs, and ruin of a personal relationship with the arts of the pop love song. Marvin Gaye did it with Here, My Dear , Bob Dylan with Blood on the Tracks , and husband-and-wife folkies Richard and Linda Thompson made one together in Shoot Out the Lights . This year, producer/songwriter/singer Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Toni Braxton, a singer he has produced two albums for, made one of the best duet records in this line, titled Love, Marriage & Divorce . (Babyface divorced Tracey Edmonds in 2005, and Braxton let go of Keri Lewis in 2013.)

George E. Norcross III and Lewis Katz made many of their millions while being in charge. So when they began talking about buying The Inquirer's parent company in 2011, they had concerns about the kind of business marriage theirs might be. Norcross had already been turned down once in a bid to buy the company, he would later tell a Delaware judge, and he was willing to share control with Katz only if the deal allowed for an "amicable divorce....
