WHAT'S a long commute to work? A half hour? An hour? Any period of time on I-95 or the Schuylkill Expressway? NTSB accident investigators are looking into what role the commute of Kevin Roper - the driver charged in the accident that injured comedian Tracy Morgan - played in the fatal crash on the New Jersey Turnpike. Wal-Mart driver Roper, who pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges yesterday, lived in Georgia. His job was based in Delaware.

State Rep. David P. Richardson Jr. - a relentless advocate for African Americans, the impoverished and the disenfranchised - died suddenly yesterday of a heart attack. He was 47 and had a history of heart disease and diabetes. From the time he was a teenager - when he fought to make African American history part of the public school curriculum - through more than 20 years in the House of Representatives, Richardson threw his heft and his voice into causes he saw as just. In his own neighborhood of Germantown, he had a reputation as the community's moral compass, said U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah.

Smoking causes about half of all heart attacks among young and middle-aged women, and even three or four cigarettes a day sharply increase the risk, researchers conclude in a newly published study. In a separate study, a scientist reported that living in a home where one or both parents smoke may accelerate the development of hardening of the arteries in young boys and raise their risk of coronary heart disease as adults. The results of both studies should provide more incentive for smokers to quit, researchers said.

On the eve of today's Great American Smokeout, two studies released yesterday reported that smoking and exposure to cigarette smoke increases the danger of heart attacks and heart disease among women and boys. According to the Nurses Health Study, smoking causes about half of all heart attacks among young and middle-aged women, and even three or four cigarettes a day sharply increase the risk. Until a few years ago, many experts believed that cigarettes did not contribute to heart disease in women.

Breast cancer. That we know about. From the pink ribbons pinned on jacket lapels to the graphic photographs of defiant, one-breasted women to the next-door neighbor who's wearing a bandanna on her balding head, we are all too familiar with the ravages of this killer of women. But as much as we know about breast cancer, that's how little we know about heart disease, the No. 1 killer of American women: We aren't aware that one in nine women ages 45 to 64 have some form of heart disease.

Study: Hostility can predict heart disease A personality test may do a better job than standard examinations in predicting a man's heart disease risk, researchers said yesterday after finding a close link between hostility and heart symptoms. Men who suffered heart attacks, chest pain or other incidents of heart disease were much more likely to have scored high in hostility on a personality exam, the team at Brown University, Harvard Medical School, Boston University, the Veterans Administration and elsewhere found.

Peter Richard Maroko, 55, a pioneer in heart-disease research, died Thursday of a heart attack at Sevierville Medical Center in Sevierville, Tenn. Dr. Maroko, a Cherry Hill resident, had been vacationing with his wife Cleuva Mantovani Maroko, and his son, Robert. The three had been hiking through the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee for six days when Dr. Maroko was taken ill. "He liked to do anything that he considered an adventure," said his son, a medical student at Tufts University in Boston, Mass.
