Philadelphians be warned. Do not be afraid. An urban legend is making its way through the country and arrived in Philadelphia via fax yesterday. The fax says there is a national alert this weekend in police departments across the nation because "Bloods" gang members are holding an initiation rite. The fax says gang members will ride around at night with their headlights off, and any motorist who gives them a courtesy flash - to tell the driver to turn on the headlights - will be shot.

The good news is that last fall's report that the new Air Force fax machines would cost $421,000 each, including spare parts, is wrong. The bad news is that they'll cost $668,000 apiece, once the expense of development and required communications gear is added, Sen. Carl Levin (D., Mich.) said yesterday. Levin denounced the purchase on the Senate floor after an investigation by a subcommittee of the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee that he heads. "I have concluded that the fax purchase wasn't as bad as it seemed at first blush," he said.

The Flyers are hoping there's no "home-ice advantage" in NHL hearings. Since NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was already scheduled to be in Chicago today on league business, that city was chosen as the site of this afternoon's hearing into the Chicago Blackhawks' claim that they consummated a deal for the rights to Tampa Bay free-agent forward Chris Gratton last Tuesday night, before the Flyers faxed a signed offer sheet to the Lightning. Details of this part of the Gratton drama remain fuzzier than the fax the Lightning unsuccessfully tried to get the NHL to declare illegible.

Even the appearance of movement in the impasse between Eric Lindros and the Quebec Nordiques, the team this especially gifted 18-year-old says he will never play for, creates a stir in the National Hockey League. Pierre Page, Quebec's general manager and coach, said after Wednesday night's game in Buffalo that any team interested in acquiring Lindros should fax its offer to him. "If someone makes a proposition, then we'll listen," Page said Thursday night in Boston. "But it has to be one that makes us think.

Elvis Dumervil found himself out of a job and the Broncos were without their best defensive end Friday afternoon after they reached an agreement on a new contract but saw it all come undone when tardy faxing of the paperwork forced Denver to release him. Dumervil is now a free agent, and the Broncos now can start looking at other DEs, including Dwight Freeney, in what is shaping up as a buyer's market for pass rushers.   Kolb discarded The Arizona Cardinals have released ex-Eagle Kevin Kolb, ending the quarterback's two injury-filled seasons with the team.

MADRID - Spanish police say they have arrested a man who twice escaped from custody by having his wife send fake faxes ordering his release. Jose Carlos Serna, 57, was arrested yesterday at his home in a suburb north of Madrid after being found hiding in a hollowed-out sofa, police said. In December, he was in a cell at a courthouse awaiting trial when officers got a fax purportedly from a regional court. It was followed by a phone call purportedly from a court official, corroborating the release order.

Online con artists are always coming up with something new. Now they're phishing for private information via fax - while pretending to be the IRS. The phony e-mail arrives, pretending to be from "Internal Revenue Service," with a subject line such as "please see the attachment. " One e-mail still circulating yesterday had two attachments. One looks like a letter on official IRS stationery, saying: "Our records indicate that you are a non-resident alien. " The other is a copy of an actual IRS form.

Hairstylist Glenn Culley remembers a time, not so long ago, when customers who came to get their hair cut also came to relax and hang out. Now, instead of just chatting, they check their e-mail and send faxes. At least they do at Salon Metropolis, Culley's new shop in the Morrisville Shopping Center. There, in a small room with modern office equipment, customers stay productive as they wait to get their hair done. "Twelve years ago, people were really laid-back," said Culley, 50. "The salon used to be a real social place.

Buddy Ryan is halfway across the continent, but he still keeps track of what is happening in Philadelphia. He has friends who are thoughtful enough to send him newspaper clippings. "They fax 'em to me," Ryan said with a grin. "I guess they can't wait for the mail. They want me to get the stories right away. There has been a lot to read lately. "I saw a line that somebody wrote: 'The best team (Norman) Braman built is the one in Miami.' That was a good line. " Ryan was standing on the practice field at Trinity University, having just concluded a morning workout with the Houston Oilers.

Maybe it's time for Bill Clinton to get his priorities straight. To stop fretting over what's happening in the Persian Gulf. To put down his position papers on the economy. To set aside a health-care package. To, instead, pay close attention to Camden's Tiffany Johnson, who at the age of 11 has yet to acquire the adult habit of circuitous speech that bleeds the urgency from life-and-death issues: I am talking about poor people, Mr. Clinton. . . . Give them clothes and money and food for the poor people.

Often heard though seldom seen, Wolfgang Rihm is considered Germany's greatest contemporary composer. But he lives such a circumscribed existence he's in danger of becoming an enigma. By no means is he a J.D. Salinger-level enigma, but you won't find him coaching the world's great orchestras in the best way to play his complex works - though often they'd welcome the advice. And don't bother asking him to come to the United States for the high-profile performance of Astralis - written in 2001 and one of his most circulated works - on Friday by the Crossing choir at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Chestnut Hill, which will be repeated Sunday at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Getting him to leave his hometown of Karlsruhe takes some persuading; there and in his tiny Berlin apartment, he writes one uncompromising work after another for the likes of violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and conductor Riccardo Chailly.

PHILLYCLOUT doesn't usually issue orders but today we make an exception: Al Schmidt should go buy some lottery tickets while his lucky streak lasts. Schmidt, the Republican candidate for city controller last year and recently a senior adviser to the state GOP, spent weeks using public-records requests to collect faxes that he says demonstrate a "culture of corruption" in Philadelphia politics. He distributed the documents yesterday as he announced his candidacy in the May primary election for the Philadelphia City Commission.

You consulted C.P.A.s, M.B.A.s, Ph.D.s, and LMNOPs to make sure you took advantage of every line of the 1040, Schedules A through Z, and AA through ZZ. Gave to charities. Gave to friends and relatives up to the taxable limit. Figured out the alternative minimum tax and the alternative maximum tax to boot.
