Several months ago Jackie, 31, became fed up with being alone and dating only "pathological liars who say they have a small place of their own and really live with their parents. " So the 31-year-old bartender from Bristol decided to join Sweet Beginnings, a dating service in Langhorne. Jackie, who describes herself as "very marketable," said she likes both jazz and fishing and is looking for "someone stable who is not frightened by the idea of getting married. " With an estimated 70 million single people over the age of 18 in the United States, Jackie, who asked that her last name not be used, is hardly alone out in the dating world.

The death of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis inspired testimonials of love and respect across all divisions of social class and political party. She was the most famous woman in the world in a long period following that of the great stars of old Hollywood and preceding that of our own pop princesses, Diana and Madonna. Why? Merely as a paragon of high fashion and elegant good taste, Jackie could not have retained the affection of millions over a span of several decades. It was her baptism by gunfire that deified her. Her extraordinary behavior during and after the assassination of her husband gave her a permanent place in history.

FORGET RAHM Emanuel. Ditch David Axelrod. Ignore Valerie Jarrett. Just focus on Desiree Rogers. Desiree Glapion Rogers is the White House social secretary, and she's a lot more fun to look at than Emanuel, Axelrod or Jarrett. I know because I'm looking at a photo of her. Of Creole heritage, she's a cool New Orleans native with a Harvard MBA who made her mark both in corporate America and the rough and tumble world of Chicago politics. Rogers is the "eyes and ears" of first lady Michelle Obama.

Byko's birthday book Manayunk state rep Kathy Manderino votes 39. Hey, it was the '70s. All the beautiful people were painting New York red and indulging in tawdry one-night stands. Why wouldn't Frank Sinatra and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis be among them? The two legendary celebs spent a night together in September 1975, according to "Sinatra: Behind the Legend," a dishy and probably unverifiable new account of the singer's life. No Sinatra family spokesperson could be reached for comment yesterday.

At 14, Jackie already floated high most days. "Whether I was happy, sad, mad - it didn't matter what my feelings were - when I got up in the morning, I needed to get high," she said. "It was the first thing I thought of. " From the time she was in elementary school, drugs dominated her life. For that high, she did almost anything, went almost anywhere. Her habits took her from her small-town home in Brownsville, N.J., to Northeast Philadelphia and as far away as California.

Jackie deMarteleire has been defined over the years as Mike's younger sister, daughter of the coach, or niece and granddaughter in the first family of Lansdale Catholic athletics, the Algeos. She expects someday soon simply to be Jackie, but she isn't in a rush to abandon those other aspects of her identity. "There is always time for that," deMarteleire said. "In college, I'll just be me. In high school, I think I've had a competitive edge to prove something, that I was a good athlete myself.

Over the last few weeks, Philadelphia-based investigative reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely has received international attention for her Rolling Stone article "A Rape on Campus," telling of the gang rape of a student, identified only as "Jackie," at a fraternity party at the University of Virginia. On Friday, after a series of news reports questioned Erdely's work, Rolling Stone issued an apology citing unspecified discrepancies in the story. "Because of the sensitive nature of Jackie's story," the magazine's managing editor, Will Dana, wrote, "we decided to honor her request not to contact the man she claimed orchestrated the attack on her, nor any of the men she claimed participated in the attack, for fear of retaliation against her. ... "There now appear to be discrepancies in Jackie's account, and we have come to the conclusion that our trust in her was misplaced," the statement read.

But on this off night downashore, the dim, triple-bar Cypress Room of Crane's Surf City Hotel was up and bumping.

Friday marked the 69th anniversary of the day Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball's color barrier in 1947 with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the occasion was celebrated by every team. The Phillies held a pregame tribute and all MLB players wore No. 42. This is a day of deep appreciation and pride for major-league players, especially African Americans. "Everything he went through, the adversities, the turmoil, it is not easy for somebody to do that," Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard said before the game against the Washington Nationals at Citizens Bank Park.

ISSUE | JACKIE ROBINSON City steps up It's a brilliant moment when our fair city can humbly answer to the racist dictates of the past and apologize for the insensitive treatment of Major League Baseball trailblazer Jackie Robinson ("Dear Jackie, we're sorry," Friday). Kudos to City Councilwoman Helen Gym and Council for unanimously passing a resolution to recognize and celebrate April 15, the day in 1947 when Robinson broke the color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers. As the Philadelphia-based graphic designer for the Jackie Robinson Foundation, I'd like to point out some of its accomplishments over the past 43 years: $65 million in scholarship assistance and program support has gone to students of color; 1,450 students have participated in the program and received scholarships; recipients maintain a nearly 100 percent graduation rate, more than double the national average for minority students; 75 corporations, foundations, and individuals sponsor full scholarships in the Mentoring and Leadership Development Program; the foundation is working to open the Jackie Robinson Museum in Lower Manhattan.

Jackie Lithgow got out of his wheelchair at the starting line and began walking. He didn't think about the steps he was taking last weekend at the Flyers Charities 5K race. He just walked, and looked like anybody else walking, flanked by his parents and sister and grandmother and other family and friends, and that was the beauty of it. After a first few steps, the 20-year-old stopped to do a little dance move - what his parents might call the twist - right there in the middle of Pattison Avenue because he was happy and because he could.

Jackie Chan, it seems, doesn't just play indestructible heroes. He is indestructible. Since he made his film debut in the mid-1970s, the martial-arts superstar has performed some of the most wondrous, stunning, bone-crunching stunts, fights, and action scenes on the screen. Now 61, Chan proves he can still punch with the best of them in Police Story: Lockdown , the sixth entry in the loosely linked Police Story film series that made Chan an international star in the 1980s.

There's a certain type of American man who never changes and never disappears. Often overlooked, and even looked down upon, he nonetheless degrades himself in humiliating jobs to support his family while clinging to dreams of wealth and fame. On television, this man has appeared by many names: Al Bundy, Homer Simpson, Fred Flintstone, and Ralph Kramden. The latter finds life on stage as Scottie (Scott Greer) in 1812 Productions' To the Moon. Jen Childs and her creative team wrote To the Moon as an homage to the comedy style of Jackie Gleason, with Greer standing in for The Honeymooners star in a number of respects.
