WHY WOULD someone use his SUV to kill a person he thought he loved. Why would someone kill a person over a $25 crack debt? Why would an 18-year-old stab a 15-year-old in school? This might not be the answer, but it makes sense to me: I woke up on a recent morning and there was a movie on one of the pay-movie channels, "Freddy vs. Jason. " After I watched the blood and the gore in this movie, I had to turn off my TV. If we as American people watch this slaughter as entertainment, then it would easy to run someone over, stab or shoot a person.

Monique Begg's mandate was bigger than just selling cookbooks. True, she wanted to sell as many copies of Moorestown Friends Heritage Cookbook as she could for Moorestown Friends Meeting and its school, which were sponsoring the project, but Begg also wanted to tell Burlington County residents more about Quakers. "It's not that we want to proselytize, but when so many people today think that Quakers are all dead, you know you've got a problem," said Begg, a longtime member of the Moorestown Quaker meeting.

I was among the millions who contributed to making Apollo 13 the No. 1 box office hit when it broke all previous records for attendance over the July Fourth weekend. And in becoming a small part of entertainment history I also managed to learn something I'd been wondering about since those heady late-' 60s days when Neil Armstrong took that giant step for Mankind: How astronauts pee. I won't disclose the details here, except to say the "pee" scenes are among the high points of a highly enjoyable movie - a movie that is bound to have all America talking once again about reviving the nation's now-flagging space program.

The elegant facade of a 19th-century French mansion dominates the center of the newest store at Franklin Mills mall. But the sights and sounds inside are far less tranquil. Once inside the white doors, lined up in several rows along a dark green carpet, are more than 300 video games. But despite the abundance of Pac-Man, Skee-ball, Centipede and other quarter-gobbling games, the 49th Street Galleria is more than your average arcade - it's an entertainment mecca. In addition to being video-game heaven, the entertainment store has a bowling alley, restaurants and a roller-skating rink to keep mall shoppers busy doing more than searching for the latest clothing sale.

This kallah will be an evening of learning and entertainment as religious leaders from the area's 13 congregations present a variety of mini-classes on topics of Jewish interest.

Every road warrior knows the return trip from a trade show or conference isn't complete until the kids ask: "What did you bring me?"

NextWave is among a new breed of companies blending information with high-tech entertainment for corporate meetings, training sessions or other occasions.

About 90 years after his grandfather helped introduce talking movies to Philadelphians, Bruce Frank returns with an innovation of his own. He has named his new business Revolutions, opening at month's end in Fishtown's Penn Treaty Village development. You can call Revolutions an MVE - industry term for a multi-venue entertainment site. Just don't call it a bowling alley, because it's much more than that. While spinning gears, balls, bottles, and turntables seek to create what Frank calls "the wow factor," Revolutions' primary come-on will be 26 lanes of Brunswick bowling tweaked with some pretty cool creature comforts and technology.

This is the time of year for ambitious phone calls, missed connections, and irrational fantasies. The trade deadline is in 11 days. Other teams have called Matt Klentak, and the Phillies general manager said trade dialogue has intensified in recent days. "Truth be told, a lot of those conversations go nowhere," Klentak said. "None of them have led to anything. Some are fairly superficial. Some are fairly detailed. We'll just continue to take the calls and see what may happen. " The targets are familiar: Jeremy Hellickson, Jeanmar Gomez and Peter Bourjos.

By Richard Russo Knopf. 485 pp. $27.95 Reviewed by Bob Hoover In the alternative universe of the novel, the universe without an alternative, i.e., the actual world, seldom intrudes unless the novelist is able to reflect one within the other. Richard Russo's hermetically sealed novels roll without even a distant signal from real life. Set vaguely in the recent past, the books are concerned chiefly with his world of underclass white folks whose thoughts center largely on themselves.

Justin Bieber does not smile. During the Purpose World Tour on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center, the 22-year-old Canadian pop star wavered between a hardened stare and a blank expression as he bounced, flipped, and falsetto-ed his way through a two-hour spectacle. It was difficult to determine whether the constant shrill screams of the mostly female crowd were in support of this newfound stoicism or a cry to let loose and take his shirt off. Either way, Bieber commanded their attention and delivered a set that both baffled and entertained.

ISSUE | ACADEMY AWARDS Give us entertainment, not lectures I'm not sure I enjoyed watching the annoying, boring, dark humor (pardon the pun), reverse discrimination, and excessive protesting at the Oscar presentations (" 'Spotlight' wins best-movie prize," Feb. 29). Enough, already. I also want to thank the participants, including Vice President Biden, who gave us sermons on proper behavior. The TV viewers just wanted some entertainment, not preaching. |Richard Fitterman, Oreland, rjfitt1@aol.com
