Q: I went to my high-school reunion last weekend and met an old lover I hadn't seen in 20 years. We chatted, caught up with each other. I told him I'm happily married and gave him no hint of interest at all, but when the evening came to an end, he made a pass at me! It was as if he thought he could have me again, just because of the past. I was more annoyed at his presumption than insulted. Did I make a mistake even talking to him? Steve: As Proust observed, "Time, which changes people, does not alter the image we have retained of them.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - It was only a small rectangle made of bronze. And compared with all she lost in the last several years - her husband to a car accident, their Mantoloking beach house to Hurricane Sandy - the loss of the bronze could have seemed insignificant. But to Lori Juliano-Slack it was everything, a touchstone to her husband's memory that had been placed on the wooden railing along their beach pathway by the town. So it was heartbreaking when the commemorative plague honoring Steven F. Slack'stragic 2007 passing washed away in the storm.

It is not your typical five-minute wait. With each second ticking by, your Facebook page stays the same. Then the red notification flag flashes on your blue screen. Congratulations, you have received your first like on your post. As people post their status, photos, or videos, competition begins with the number of likes or comments they receive. Whether that competition is healthy for teenagers is an open question. For some teens, the problem arises when they realize that their friends get way more likes or comments than they do. Many people have argued that social media websites enhance a person's self-esteem instead of deflating it. Others disagree, saying that social media websites are not a good place for people with low self-esteem.

Gone are the days of just buttons and banners for politicians to reach their constituents. Welcome to the new political arena full of commercials, blog posts, and hundreds of tweets. Through social media, politicians are now able to constantly display their message through endless commercials, see direct responses to their actions via Facebook or Twitter, and connect with a single person at the push of a button. As State Sen. Andy Dinniman (D., Chester) introduced legislation last year that would strengthen Pennsylvania's animal cruelty laws, his camp was overwhelmed with positive feedback from the animal-loving community.

A tearful girl who ran away from a crossing guard outside the Helen L. Beeler Elementary School on Friday morning turned up safe after seven Evesham Township police cars were deployed to the school.

The girl, 7, was accounted for within 90 minutes of the 8:35 a.m. emergency call. But the seven-vehicle response and intensive search of the neighborhood sparked "a high volume" of calls from residents and parents worried about what was going on at Beeler.

Danielle McMonagle's semester as a communications intern at the Vatican was supposed to be a quiet one. Then her new boss, Pope Benedict XVI, announced his retirement on the day she was to start, and all heaven broke loose. "It's been pretty crazy ever since," the Villanova University junior said Tuesday. Earlier in the day, she had watched as 115 cardinals from around the world filed into the Sistine Chapel to begin choosing Benedict's successor. But McMonagle, of Moorestown, was no mere face in the crowd at St. Peter's Square.
