You ask busy, perky Walter Pluck what keeps him so young at age 82, and he gives you that whiskery grin, followed by that husky "heh heh" laugh of his. "I don't worry about it," he says. The "it" in that answer covers a lot of ground. Pluck believes that the secret of a happy life is to take things as they come, treat everybody with uncomplicated good humor, and keep busy. Busy means being one of the pillars that supports the Coatesville Senior Center, being the captain of the Modena Fire Police, and being a member of two other Coatesville-area fire companies.

Great town you guys have here, Mike Elwood pronounced last week, just 24 hours after blowing in from Toronto to watch his beloved Blue Jays. Already, he'd seen the Jays win a blowout Tuesday night. He'd traded gentle barbs with Phillies fans. He'd been impressed with the city's rich history and the happening nightspots around South Street. That afternoon he might have been convinced that Philadelphia really was the third-best city in North America. Heh-heh, heh-heh.

Heh-heh. Good one, Mother Nature. Had us going there for a while. Prank's over now, though. Quit blustering. Clean up this mess. We want our blossoms back. We want baseball (sort of). And kite-flying in the park. Have to hand it to you. You set this one up beautifully. First, late last year, you had us trembling with dread about what new knockout blows of white, wind and cold you had planned for us in 1997. Then . . . nothing. A couple of piddling snowfalls through March 21. And a patch of titillating late-March sun. We let down our guard, we admit.

Oh, please. Like he didn't know the question was coming. Mr. Speaker: Boxers or briefs? "That is a very stupid question, and it's stupid for you to ask that question," Newt Gingrich snapped yesterday. At the taping of MTV's "Newt: Raw" in Washington, D.C., the Georgia Republican was happy to hector the studio audience at length about welfare, student loans and other items from his long list of social ills. But sheesh, a simple question about what comes between the congressman and his Dockers, and he turns all red and huffy.

I just flew in from Harrisburg and boy, are my arms tired. But seriously folks . . . Last night Ed Rendell, Pennsylvania's irrepressible outgoing governor, threw his hat into the ring of what may be his new career: talk-show guest. During an appearance on The Colbert Report on Comedy Central, Fast Eddie displayed his gift for light banter, parrying with host Stephen Colbert. The comedian had teed up the governor during his monologue, playing the now infamous radio interview in which an exasperated Rendell called us "a nation of wusses.

Sunday scores for sheer drama Niffle Nation, the staff and I apologize for taking off on Monday and Tuesday. But, dude, I needed time to recover. By the time I clicked off the tube, the Dell and the Kmart clock radio at 1 a.m. Monday, the NFL had provided more fireworks than both Demopublican conventions combined. More dramatic stuff happened Sunday than I could digest. Even now, I have trouble comprehending the gamut. It was all so fabulous. And all so terrible. Brett Favre is one-and-oh!

One day, Alaska Gov. Walter J. Hickel might be thinking of sending Alaska's river water to drought-weary California via a 1,700-mile pipeline, built along the Pacific Ocean's floor. The next month he might be noodling with extending the Alaska Railroad into the rugged reaches of the Arctic, or building a natural gas pipeline across the nation's largest state, or creating a deep-water port in what's now a shallow inlet. After that, who knows? But rest assured it will be big. Very big. "The sky," says Hickel - a man most Alaskans simply call Wally - "is the limit.

LYON, France - Cheering audiences, rhythmic clapping, stamping feet, and other signs of adoration on its Europe 2015 tour don't excuse the Philadelphia Orchestra from the front lines of music outreach. The morning after the orchestra's raucously successful Lyon debut, players took to streets that, at least on Saturday, could be a bit mean. Three contingents set up shop to play chamber music, the most civilized setting being the courtyard of the Lyon Museum of Fine Arts, which offered acoustics-enhancing walls and appreciative tour-group audiences who not only stopped to listen but, between movements, talked about family members who had attended Temple University.

In the end it was all funny, of course, and the Eagles could joke about how close they came to a season-opening loss to the Cleveland Browns. They laughed in the same way that airline passengers do after a very turbulent flight ends safely. Heh, heh. That was a close one. Yes, it was, and the Eagles weren't sure the landing gear would hold on their final drive of the day, a 91-yard slog that was helped a little by a semi-bogus roughing penalty and helped a lot when Cleveland's L.J. Fort showed why he is a linebacker and not a wide receiver.

The online dating world is full of wishful thinking, baggage-hiding, and artfully chosen photos that defy reality and gravity. All laptop romantics fib a little, hoping the truth won't matter once they've made an electronic love connection with another lonely liar. But even by today's standards, the Match.com post by an infamous former Main Liner is a stretch. The half-dozen pictures show a balding gent resembling Mr. Burns from The Simpsons , but the profile lists his age at an inconceivable 54. He's a Gemini who digs dogs and devours the Economist, a lawyer who earns $150,000 a year.

RAY EMERY says John Paddock "is like a father figure to me. " Ray Emery was a big reason why John Paddock was fired in Ottawa. John Paddock is now an employee of the Flyers, the head coach of their top farm team, which made yesterday's press conference announcing Emery as the Flyers' newest goalie of the future - 1 year, $1.5 million - well, interesting. Down on one end, just outside the one-way mirrored doors that lead into the Flyers' offices at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J., stood Paddock, well removed from the cameras and interviews being conducted across the way. On the other end, Emery was bouncing from interview to interview, repeatedly peppered with questions about his exodus to Russia when the Senators bought out his contract after last season and cut him loose.
