PRESIDENT Bush is willing to inflict on the world's poorest people 2 million more unwanted pregnancies, 800,000 more induced abortions, 4,700 more deaths of women during pregnancy and childbirth, and 77,000 more deaths of children under five.

I have my family out here with me now, and we're having a blast. My wife, Tracy, and our kids, Brandi, 7, and Brett, 4, are decked out in red, white and blue all the time. Brett chants "USA!" all day long. He talks a lot, just like his dad. Tracy was interviewed on the scoreboard TV at the E Center during our game Monday against Belarus. I was in the locker room - the interview was between periods - but I understand she noted that her husband "is seldom at a loss for words. " Thanks a bunch, Tracy!

It was what one would expect from a welcome-home scene, now played out repeatedly across the nation - a fluffy white cake with a frosted yellow ribbon, trays of food, cocktails and cheering. But the emotional aura that filled Oaklyn's American Legion Post No. 84 as five local freshly returned-home soldiers entered the room made it seem as though the celebration were the first of its kind. Because their waiting families had come to know and count on each other throughout the Persian Gulf crisis, they appeared as one extended family during the festivities at the post Friday night.

When Donn T plays Johnny Brenda's on April 21 - the same day the soulful singer/songwriter releases her sophomore effort, Flight of the Donn T - she's going for a familial vibe. But not because she's Donn Thompson, the Philly-born sister of drummer Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson of the Roots, the acclaimed hip-hop group and Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon house band. "I write moments," said Donn T on Wednesday morning, fresh from having rehearsed until 5 a.m. "And this moment involves my family.

In the middle of Jazmine Sullivan's sold-out show Tuesday at the Theatre of Living Arts, she asked her family to make some noise - and met with screams from the entire venue. "There's a lot of y'all!" she said with a laugh. And the R&B songstress' show was a family affair. Despite the red smoke, backup singers, and jazz band, there was a sense of intimacy, of being in her hometown. Family, fans, and fellow artists such as rapper Chill Moody and neo-soul duo the Kindred Family Soul, all Philly natives, were in the audience.

The phone rang around 9 p.m. It was the night before a game, and another reporter wanted to talk to Lauren Holden about another impending milestone. The questions were predictable: Is it a distraction? Is it on your mind? Is it hard to block out such a big achievement? Is it tough to sleep? Holden laughed. To her, these all seemed far-fetched. "No," she said. "Right now I'm actually just trying to finish my homework. " Others shower praise on Holden, the speedy, energetic scoring machine, 15 points away from becoming South Jersey girls' basketball's 25th 2,000-point scorer.

Julie Bogle, 10, and her sister Mallory, 7, are mean Skylanders players. But surprisingly, so are parents Jeff and Jill. In fact, video games are the Exton family's favorite pastime. It started about three or four years ago when the girls received a Nintendo Wii and had trouble managing the controller and "nunchuk" at the same time, so the parents paired up to help them. "It was fun and quickly became a tradition," recalled Jeff, 38, who says their family now plays together at least once every other week.

PINEHURST, N.C. - Fran Quinn has celebrated the ups and endured the downs of competitive professional golf since turning pro in 1988, and he keeps persevering, trying to figure the crazy game out.

Upon entering fatherhood, Bear Stephens pledged to himself that he would never introduce his children to wrestling. Stephens had wrestled for Coatesville from 1990 until 1994, and said he did not want to put his kids through the hardship he had endured as a high school wrestler. "A lot of people don't realize what this sport really is," Stephens said. "You're one-on-one when you're out on the mat. You have to watch what you eat and work out all the time. I didn't want to put my kids through that.

HAMILTON, Mass. - Earl Williams knew early on that things would be fine. He would commute 29 miles from Cambridge to pick up his oldest son in the rural-suburban town of Hamilton, on the North Shore of Massachusetts. The sound of a young Michael Carter-Williams dribbling a basketball was often the first thing the father heard as he drove up to the white colonial house on Cutler Street. That noise often led Williams to walk to the back of the house, where he would spot Carter-Williams performing basketball drills under the supervision of his stepfather, Zach Zegarowski.

WHEN THE Bulletin closed in 1982, it was a considerable blow to the McBride family. In fact, the family tried to keep it open as best they could. They demonstrated at the building at 30th and Market streets, even holding a candlelight vigil. Nothing worked, of course. The 135-year-old newspaper was doomed. The emotional attachment was a family affair. The late Bill McBride, who died in 1978, was a longtime Bulletin sportswriter, specializing in horse racing, and other family members worked there over the years.

MIAMI - These NBA Finals were about the kids, too. Whether it was Tim Duncan spending a few minutes with his children at halftime of Game 5 of the series - a scene captured by television cameras as the Spurs forward sat on the floor resting for the second half - or Miami Heat star LeBron James celebrating one of his sons' birthdays in San Antonio last week, kids were never out of mind for either team during the title series. "They know if I won or lost," James said. "But for the most part, when you have them around, man, it puts everything in perspective.
