RE DANIEL Cirucci's "Too much ugly ink" op-ed on tattoos: How did he get to be such an authority as to ask people to "cover up or have them removed"? And why print a picture of a homicidal maniac with the article, implying that those who have tattoos are criminal racists? A tattoo is a commitment, and while some people get them for the wrong reasons, I doubt half the people who have them regret it. Philadelphia has some of the world's greatest tattoo artists, but I doubt you took the time to talk to one of them.

DENVER - Jamie Moyer has agreed to terms on a minor league contract with an invite to the Colorado Rockies' spring training, pending a physical. The 49-year-old lefty didn't play last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow. Moyer has played 24 major league seasons, starting with the Chicago Cubs in 1986. He went 9-9 with a 4.84 ERA for the Phillies in 2010. Moyer, who was 56-40 in 4 1/2 seasons with the Phillies, is 267-204 in his career with a 4.24 career ERA.

He wound up staying with the team through the entire season, playing in 130 games and batting .307 with a .351 on-base percentage.

IT'S absolutely appalling that you can feature on the front page a homeless man who's chosen his lifestyle (because of love issues, of all things) while losing nine servicemen in Afghanistan is on Page 11. Apparently no one at the Daily News has ever had a family member in the service, or you'd understand the importance of having a loved one serving his or her country. Mark R. Swipes, Philadelphia As a hardworking blue-collar man, your cover story about a homeless guy called the Caveman made me sick, not because I feel sorry for him but because you wasted valuable ink on his "sad" story.

Quarterback Doug Flutie signed a six-year contract with the San Diego Chargers yesterday and finally gets a starting job of his own.

The Pistons today will announce the signing of free-agent guard Chauncey Billups to a 6-year contract worth about $33.7 million, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Noteworthy State police in New Jersey rejected a newspaper's request to turn over tapes of the 911 call made after a limousine driver was shot to death at the home of former NBA star Jayson Williams.

A divided Superior Court panel has overturned the decision of a Common Pleas Court judge who had barred testimony from ink-dating experts in a criminal case against a West Philadelphia physician. In a 13-page opinion, the court said Judge Joseph Murphy committed "a clear abuse of discretion" in barring the ink-dating testimony in the longstanding perjury case against Leonard W. Johnson, 62. Joining in the decision to send the case back to Common Pleas Court were Judges James E. Rowley and Justin M. Johnson.

Thick skin may seem to be a requisite for elected officials. At the turn of the 20th century, however, Pennsylvania Gov. Samuel Whitaker Pennypacker found himself nearly crushed by a cartoon. Born in Phoenixville, Pennypacker (1843-1916) taught himself several languages and served as a judge before winning the governor's office in 1903. Many distinctions attach to his tenure: the passage of the 1905 Child Labor Act, the appointment of the state's first commissioner of forestry, and the establishment of the State Museum of Pennsylvania.

If Electronic Ink had done the presentation on "data visualizing" to the board of a fictional law firm on the hit TV show The Good Wife , maybe cranky elder partner Howard Lyman wouldn't have thrown up his arms in dismay, declaring "I don't see the use!" On the Oct. 4 broadcast, the firm's young name partner Cary Agos suggested that the partners "listen to new ideas" like working with visual depictions of their workflow "to communicate complex multivariable data" that anyone can grasp.

Peco Energy Co.'s parent company Exelon Corp. reached an agreement with Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser on its proposed $6.8 billion merger Pepco Holdings Inc., resurrecting a deal that District of Columbia regulators nixed in August. Exelon agreed to invest $78 million in the nation's capital, up from the $14 million it had previously proposed, according to the mayor's office. The District of Columbia Public Service Commission has scheduled a Wednesday vote. The merger already passed muster in New Jersey, where Pepco operates Atlantic City Electric Co., and in Delaware and Maryland, where it owns Delmarva Power.

Since Newsies , the Walt-Disney-movie-turned-musical based on New York's Newsboy Strike of 1899 closes on Sunday, I will immediately say that if you like uplifting David-and-Goliath stories set to rousing music and filled with aggressive, gymnastics-propelled choreography, get tickets. Since Philadelphia also launches the 2014-15 national tour, I will offer my criticisms of a show that I enjoyed thoroughly, for as long as I could stand it. Alan Menken's music and Jack Feldman's lyrics strike a single note all night: yearning.

Rubber bands snapping really hard - painfully hard - against the skin. That's what laser treatment feels like to Marianne Morrison, who is getting three of her tattoos removed, including a large iris on the right side of her neck. It hurts more than getting a tattoo done in the first place, said Morrison, 40, of Germantown. If only she'd listened to her husband, local tattoo artist Eric Eaton, who grudgingly did the ink she's trying to erase. But the bartender wants to take the edge off her appearance and look more professional before starting nursing school.

Philadelphia City Council took a big step Wednesday toward resolving a piece of the School District's budget woes, giving preliminary approval to a bill that would guarantee the district $120 million in sales tax revenue next year. But that money would hardly cure the district's profound financial troubles. In fact, the district likely is going to need tens of millions of dollars in city funding before the end of this month just to make ends meet. Mayor Nutter plans to send a bill to Council on Thursday that would let the city borrow the needed funds and pay back the loan from future sales tax revenue.

The recent layoffs announced by Crozer-Keystone Health System and Temple University Health System are a sign of financial turmoil at all but the strongest Philadelphia-area hospital networks. Crozer and Temple both had operating losses in the six months ending Dec. 31, and so did Einstein Health Network and Holy Redeemer Health System. However, officials at Einstein, which has hospitals in Philadelphia and Montgomery County, and at Holy Redeemer, which has a hospital in Meadowbrook and other diverse health services in the region, said Thursday that neither system was planning layoffs.

Since seeing Mia Rosenthal's first show of drawings at Gallery Joe two years ago, I've occasionally wondered what she would do for her next solo exhibition there. Would she again develop an idea into one disciplined, project-like body of work, as she had done so nicely in her conceptual revisions of views depicted in well-known Hudson River School paintings? Or would she explore several directions at once, something she seemed eminently capable of doing? It's turned out to be the latter, exhilaratingly so. Rosenthal's familiar crisp, tiny renderings of flora and fauna in black ink on white paper - crowded together, yet each taking up the perfect amount of space; doodlelike, yet orderly - have been deployed in only two drawings in this large show (she has the entire gallery)

THIS TIME, Justin Bieber is blaming food poisoning for forcing him to stop his show in Buenos Aires - the second stoppage during his South America tour. "I'm not feeling too good, I think I'm out of energy," he told the unhappy crowd, saying he was sorry and blowing a kiss before walking off the stage while the boos escalated. Bieber posted a "selfie" photo on Twitter showing himself receiving intravenous fluids, and his manager, Scooter Braun , came to his defense. Braun said that Bieber's food poisoning was so severe, he spent eight hours on an IV drip before Sunday night's show, and doctors advised canceling, but Bieber didn't want to disappoint his fans.

Beth and Jimmy McMillan will never forget their anniversary. After all, the Oaklyn couple share a permanent reminder of their wedding date, Nov. 11, 2011: a pair of matching tattoos, reading "11 11 11" in a tidy, inch-high serif. Many brides still cover up their tattoos for the big day, layering on heavy concealer or professionally airbrushed makeup. But a growing number not only are selecting gowns that showcase their body art, they're also augmenting their ink with new wedding tattoos that serve as modern, elegant (and, yes, permanent)
