It was 10 o'clock in the morning and the woman was weeping. Her eyes, behind clear eyeglasses, glistened with tears, her voice was barely audible. She was crying because a 12-year-old boy, John Sullivan, was the subject of broadcast gossip shows. People who didn't know him were saying what a bad kid he is. But what did they know of his background? The woman is a part of the human service system that failed John Sullivan, though she tried, on an unofficial basis, to assist him. She cried when she remembered that a few weeks ago another troubled youth jumped from the fifth floor of the Youth Study Center and is now paralyzed from the waist down.

IS IT Daily News policy not to state the race of a suspect? Your first story about the three punks who broke into a Port Richmond apartment and brutalized the girls for hours did not print the suspect's race or ethnicity. The police captured two of them, but one was still on the loose. Here's how the story described him: "5'7, 170 lbs. and frequents Salisbury, Md. " Why not say whether he's white, black, tan, Hispanic? John Sullivan, Philadelphia

When the Atlanta Braves staged an alumni reunion last weekend, a paunchy guy wearing No. 8 turned up, signed autographs, glad-handed with former players, attended a ceremony where John Smoltz's number was retired and participated in the softball game. He said he was former bullpen coach John Sullivan, who spent two years in Atlanta before following Bobby Cox to Toronto in 1982. Cox, who never forgets anybody who played for him, was embarrassed not to recognize the guy and finally asked a staffer who No. 8 was. Told it was John Sullivan, Cox immediately knew it was an imposter.

It takes some serious baseballs to pull off what some superfan got away with during the Atlanta Braves' annual alumni reunion.   According to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the fan received an invitation intended for former bullpen coach John Sullivan to last weekend's reunion, and decided to play the part. This guy attended functions as Sullivan, signed autographs as Sullivan and wore Sullivan's No. 8 in the alumni softball game. Even better, he got the Braves to fly him to Atlanta, feasted on comped meals and stayed at a posh hotel — on the Braves' dime.

It's hard to believe some of you folks are so hard-hearted. Several of you were bent completely out of shape because in this space last week, John Sullivan was called a victim, and the question of society's priorities was raised. Sullivan stole a car. During a high-speed chase with police, he was responsible for the deaths of two people and serious injury to another. That was tragic and criminal. Sullivan is in custody, as he should be. When you look at Sullivan's crime history and how the system refused to institutionalize him, it's easy to get upset.

After learning of Thomas Tucker?s struggle to get his medication, Medicare officials took a special interest yesterday in the elderly and disabled man. Tucker, who was featured in an Inquirer article yesterday, suffers from tuberculosis and takes drugs to help his inflamed lungs absorb oxygen pumped from a machine. Thanks to Medicare, Tucker got his vitally needed medicine yesterday. But then he got something else: a bill for $50.63. "I was like, 'Wait a minute, this isn?t right,' " said Tucker, who was supposed to be charged only a nominal copay of $1 to $5 per medication.

Father Judge moved the ball effortlessly, seniors Reggie Charles and Nick Sullivan combined for 51 points, and sophomore Steve Griffin turned from leading scorer to lockdown defender. On Friday night, in their most complete outing to date, the host Crusaders shot 50 percent from the field, limited explosive guard Joe Getz to five points, and buried helpless Archbishop Wood, 61-36, in a Catholic League matchup. "The nice thing was, we were thinking 'pass first,' not 'shot first,' " Judge coach Sean Tait said.

Divorce lawyer Chris McCary says he never ceases to be amazed at the people the state of Alabama allows to marry: felons, wife-beaters, even 16-year-olds. But McCary's own union is not legal in the eyes of his home state - and after Tuesday, when voters are expected to overwhelmingly endorse a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, there's a chance it never will be. Two years after he and partner John Sullivan became the first out-of-state gay couple to marry in Massachusetts in a ceremony documented by newspapers worldwide, the Anniston, Ala., pair say they've come to terms with a marriage marked only by their matching gold wedding bands.

On its way to find a winter encampment, the Continental Army was able to sidestep a fight with the British at Gulph Mills, Lower Merion Township. This was the result of a gallant stand made by Pennsylvania militiamen, whose efforts averted a minor military disaster. On Dec. 11, 1777, Maj. Gen. John Sullivan marched his division out of the army encampment at Whitemarsh several miles to the Schuylkill River at Matson Ford, near present-day West Conshohocken, John Reed wrote in his 1965 book Campaign to Valley Forge.
