The phrase Rape Haven was painted on the front of a Swarthmore College fraternity house this week, and college officials said they were investigating. The vandalism at Delta Upsilon was discovered Tuesday morning, less than two weeks after a member of the fraternity wrote an opinion piece for the student newspaper, the Phoenix, touting the house's positive contributions. In the aftermath of "deplorable behavior" at a University of Oklahoma fraternity in which members were caught chanting racial slurs in a video, Nathaniel Frum wrote, Swarthmore "can take pride" that Delta Upsilon "has set a model that should be followed.

The most important moment in Susan Wefel's life may have come when she was 5. She saw Mary Martin in the Broadway production of Peter Pan when it was televised for the first time in 1955, and was soon out in the backyard of her Cleveland home, directing siblings and friends in her own production. "We used the swing set for the 'I'm flying' scene," Wefel recalled. She starred in high school productions, studied drama at Boston University, and in 1978 joined the company at Hedgerow Theatre in Rose Valley, taking a room in the century-old Hedgerow House, where all the theater's new young actors lived.

MANY HAVE stated that the middle class are the people who drive the economy. But, sad to say, many spent beyond their means and now are very cautious of their spending habits. Corporations and banks are sitting on exorbitant cash reserves but will not hire folks until the purchasing of more products and services improves. Quite a quagmire! Obviously, providing big banks and corporations with bailout funds was not the answer. It was like providing funds to a frat house - the boys partied and took care of themselves.

ATLANTIC CITY - There is trash talking in sports. And there is trashed talking in life. In beer pong, perhaps as nowhere else, they are one and the same - even in competitive beer pong, where the iconic red plastic cups are filled with water, not beer, and the beer costs $5 a bottle. And so, as you navigate around the 2-by-9-foot tables filling the ballroom at Resorts Casino Hotel - the site this week of the $25,000 World Pong Tour Championship - you might hear seriously intense, and profane, attempts to psych out the other guy.
