Question: Since I am still wary of what is on the Internet, I set my browser to warn me if I'm getting "cookies," the information files some Web sites place on the hard drive. I never accept cookies. Recently, I followed my curiosity to an adult site. It turned out that I had to register or pay to actually get onto the site. Since I wasn't that curious, I left the site. Now, however, I am getting unsolicited e-mail from porno purveyors, a few a day. If I decline to accept the cookies and do not give out my e-mail address, how did they get it?

It's 1 a.m., and a city sanitation truck has just jumped a curb and landed in your front yard, crushing your azalea bushes and carving furrows in your previously flawless lawn. Whom do you call - at that hour? Well, City Councilman Joseph Vignola wants to be just a phone line away, not in person but via an electronic network that would allow constituents to message his office at any time. That is Vignola's vision: dealing with potholes and broken traffic lights with the stroke of a computer key. And he has moved in that direction, he says, by tapping into America Online, a link in the information superhighway that he uses to send weekly messages to his constituents.

Loi Nghiem, 20, of Philadelphia, who with two others has been charged with murder in the slaying of Constantine Polites during a break-in at the college student's Upper Darby home in April, testified yesterday that he had been drinking before he gave a statement to police and that he was repeatedly denied a lawyer. At a hearing before Delaware County Judge Joseph P. Cronin Jr., Nghiem's lawyer, Doug Smith, sought to suppress his statement as involuntary and coerced. Lawyers for the other two men charged with murder - Tom Moua, 22, and his brother, David Moua, 17, both neighbors of Polites' on Copley Road - also seek to have their clients' statements suppressed.

A Pennsylvania man was sentenced yesterday to 38 years in prison for the assault and rape of a Cherry Hill woman in June 1999. Camden County Superior Court Judge Samuel D. Natal imposed the sentence on Keith Capers, 40, of Darby, during a hearing yesterday. The 63-year-old victim knew Capers and had invited him into her house. After getting drunk, Capers beat her, held her hostage, and raped her several times over a 10 hour period, prosecutors said. In December, a jury convicted Capers of rape, aggravated assault, and making terroristic threats.
