RE THE letter to Harry Gross that appeared under the headline "Your SUV Drains Everyone's Gas Supply" (Feb. 21): It is not up to me to judge the faith of the writer. But I can judge the degree to which his faith influences his conduct by what he says. What a travesty that anyone would go to church - or synagogue or mosque - where community and concern for others is supposed to matter the most, and voice opinions like this. I would sum up his view as "I can do anything I can afford to pay for, and you can't stop me. " The writer needs to rethink why he attends church.

RE BRYAN M. Kilpatrick's letter on the Bible and homosexuality: What compels me to write has nothing to do with your deeply held beliefs on what the Bible has to say about homosexuality. But for someone who professes to embrace the spirit of the law, as distinguished from its letter, there is a decided self-righteousness and mean-spiritedness to your approach. While Judaism and Christianity do share many of the books of the Bible, the New Testament is canonized only by Christianity, but even Protestants and Catholics do not regard all of the same books as canon.

THE GOLDEN RULE Students at St. Denis School in Havertown are focusing on the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. "The goal is helping our children to become more aware and to appreciate the differences of other people and accept them," said Sister Marianna Walsh, principal of the school. "We hope it will carry on over the weeks, months and years. " She said it was one of the goals the school set during a recent Middle States Evaluation self-study.

Academic freedom is the golden rule at American colleges, a long-cherished principle that protects the right of professors and students to conduct controversial research and classroom discussion without fear of reprisal, all in the cause of knowledge and understanding. But as two local cases show, colleges with a religious affiliation often must struggle to balance academic freedom with the potentially conflicting values of religion. A part-time religion professor recently resigned from Chestnut Hill College after she said the Catholic school's president told her that, when speaking publicly, the professor could not identify herself as both a lesbian and a college employee.

"This is the bread of affliction which our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt; let all those who are hungry enter and eat thereof; and all who are in distress come and celebrate the Passover. " - The Passover Blessing NORMAN ROCKWELL (1894-1978), the quintessential illustrator of the common man, is best remembered for capturing on canvas an array of slice-of-life tableaus of 20th-century Americana. "Golden Rule," perhaps his most socially conscious creation, graced the cover of the April 1, 1961, Saturday Evening Post, a date that fell right between the start of Passover (March 31)

SOME questions for CEO Paul Vallas and some possible answers: If there is a dress code for students, will you be instituting one for the teachers and other school personnel? To learn by example is an old, golden rule. You have attempted to find appropriate punishment for certain infractions: cell phone use, late arrivals. You have suggested that the parents suffer the inconvenience of retrieving the phone at the central office. You acknowledge that a response to lateness has not yet been formulated.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - At the Almond Avenue Residence Club, an assisted living center in Orangevale, Calif., a dozen chatty older people meet for coffee every morning to debate how they'd answer questions printed in newspaper advice columns. After an hour of gentle exercise and a sing-along of perennials such as "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah," it's wisdom time. Activity director Lauren Guarducci reads to the group, and they listen carefully. The day's Carolyn Hax advice column question deals with a new bride, a cheating groom, and a friend who figures out the situation.

Pianist Marcus Roberts is known for many things: a genius skill that makes him the logical successor to Thelonious Monk's wild style (with a lot of Fats Waller in his stride), an immense love of the blues, technological innovations in regard to composing for the blind, and a soulful sense of tradition and invention. Roberts is also renowned for developing a philosophy in which, in a trio setting, the bass and drums are equal to his piano. Drummer Jason Marsalis and bassist Rodney Jordan are featured equally with the bandleader and are just as liable to set the temperature and mood of a particular performance as is the pianist.

ISSUE | UTILITIES Reflecting on PGW moves by Council Gas Workers Local 686 lauds City Council's decision to kill the Philadelphia Gas Works sale. While Mayor Nutter excluded stakeholders, Council involved everyone in meetings with its consultant. Council President Darrell L. Clarke and his colleagues had concerns that PGW's privatization would lead to the loss of family-sustaining jobs with health care and put the city's poor at risk. It also was a bad deal for PGW workers, with no protections for jobs, pensions, or health care.

THE EAGLES are this good: Their Pro Bowl quarterback and their best cornerback can play their worst, and they can still win. They can be without their second-best, fifth-best and sixth-best offensive linemen, and they can still win. They can cut their kicker in the last week of the preseason and cut their top receiver from a playoff season and still win, going away. They can spot a visiting team 17 points in their season opener, commit dumb penalties and make head-scratching play calls (a pass on first-and-goal from the 5, with LeSean McCoy in the backfield and Nick Foles firing blanks?

IN PENNSYLVANIA, money makes the pols go 'round. And, yeah, it does in other states, too, but our state is one of only a dozen where money tends to matter most in statewide races. That's because here, unlimited giving by individuals, political parties and PACs is the law of the land. No other Northeastern state is so wide open. Every state but the "dirty dozen" - Alabama, Indiana, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Pennsylvania - limits political contributions from such sources.

Camden public officials apparently never learned that making the same mistake over and over again won't change the results. Their state overseers must have missed that lesson, too. For 15 years, the impoverished South Jersey city has been hiring the same politically connected auditing firm to review its books, including the more than seven years when it was run by the state. The relationship between Camden and Bowman & Co. was cited by the State Comptroller's Office in a 2008 report.

While I'm away, readers give the advice.   On the destructive power of the anonymous note: Thirty years ago, I'd taken a part-time job at a shopping center to supplement my income. I really enjoyed it and the people I met through this job. I was married with three children and I'm not inclined to engage in affairs. An anonymous letter turned up in the mail one day accusing me of "fooling around" with the people at work. Even though my husband was unemployed at the time, I immediately quit the job because he felt someone there had sent it. He immediately became distrustful and accusatory.

By Charles A. Gallagher Two events that took place just hours apart 50 years ago serve as a metaphor for our nation's struggle for racial equality. On June 11, 1963, John F. Kennedy gave a speech to the nation demanding that the federal government aggressively put in place measures to guarantee the constitutional rights of blacks. JFK was comprehensive in his goals, insisting that the federal government be actively involved in addressing institutional racism in housing, the labor market, schooling, access to voting, and public accommodations.

While I'm away, readers give the advice. On gutting out miserable holidays with family: My older sister hated me. My existence was an insult to her, and I was never allowed to forget it. In my adulthood, I lived just close enough to Mom and Dad (and sib) that my Christmases and Thankgivings involved a long, grueling visit to my family. It was torture, but because my parents wanted to go visit, we of course went along. Instead of being happy and comfortable in my own home with loving friends or other relatives, I was counting the minutes at my sib's place, feeling guilty about subjecting my husband and daughter to her, and trying to dodge the inevitable barbs, outright insults, and innuendo that were a fixed feature of our being in the same room.
