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.

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

Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Co., which operates the popular HersheyPark attraction, said on Friday that its on-site card-payment system was hacked and consumers should be vigilant about unauthorized charges on their bills. The company warned that people who used credit cards at HersheyPark and its other properties between Feb. 14 and June 2 should monitor statements. Many of the credit cards used after May 9 "were likely not affected," a Hershey Entertainment spokeswoman said on Friday.

Lloyd Cole is a richly cultured British singer-songwriter who broke out of the jagged post-punk movement of the 1980s with a peculiar brand of wry, erudite guitar pop with more literary references than The New York Review of Books. Cole formed the Commotions in 1982. They released their first album in 1984 and by 1987, he'd busted up the band and gone solo. If that story, and Cole's bookish gestalt sound eerily similar to that of The Smiths and Morrissey, well, there you go. At the very least, Cole is still an emotional yet cool highbrow, and his fans still love him for it, evidenced by Tuesday's acoustic show at World Café Live.

WOODY JOHNSTON made it in the music-management business at a time when very few African-Americans were in the field. Woody set out to do something about that. While he was handling concert tours for some of the biggest stars in the music business, he also took the time to find jobs for blacks interested in the field, helping them make contacts and giving them the encouragement they needed. "He was a very caring, loving, outgoing guy," said his brother, Kenneth Johnston. "He was an extrovert.

The Philadelphia Orchestra, which knows the way to London and Vienna, could use a little help these days finding the neighborhoods of the city in which it lives. In 15 years, the orchestra's wonderful free neighborhood concert series has brought it to North Philadelphia, the Navy Yard, Drexel Hill, and elsewhere. This year, the series consists of two concerts, and you might notice that the next one, July 30, has the intrepid Philadelphians venturing all the way to, well, their usual perch in Verizon Hall.

After the Republicans lost the 2012 presidential election with a hard-line policy on immigration and a multimillionaire investment banker as their nominee, party leaders concluded in an "autopsy" that survival required, among other things, winning over Latino voters and erasing the perception they are the party of the rich. They did not reckon on Donald Trump. The reality TV star and real estate developer boasted about his wealth and insulted Mexican migrants as he announced last week he was entering the 2016 GOP race for president.
