SAN GABRIEL, Calif. - Medical records could determine whether U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson will be charged in two weekend fender-benders that led to his hospitalization after police found him slumped behind the wheel of his vehicle in the Los Angeles suburbs. Bryson suffered a seizure Saturday afternoon, Commerce Department officials said Monday, but it wasn't clear whether the medical episode preceded or followed a hit-and-run collision. Bryson, 68, was driving alone in a Lexus in San Gabriel, a community of about 40,000 northeast of Los Angeles, when he struck the rear of a vehicle that had stopped for a passing train, authorities said.

Singer Lauryn Hill is facing the wrath of the federal government: The U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark, N.J., has charged the former Fugees singer with three counts of willfully failing to file income-tax returns.

Hill, who lives in South Orange, N.J., must appear in federal court June 29. She faces up to one year in prison and a $100,000 fine for each count.

CHRIS POLK will tell you now that he had zero expectations heading into last month's NFL draft. "My expectation was just to get drafted," he said after a morning practice at the Eagles' 3-day rookie camp at NovaCare. That, of course, isn't quite true. It's one of those things players say after they've taken the kind of disappointing, look-out-below draft fall Polk took 2 weeks ago. The 5-11, 220-pound running back from the University of Washington, who is just one of seven players in Pac-12 history to rush for 4,000 yards, had hoped to be selected in the third — maybe even the second — round of the draft.

NEW YORK - I was on Broadway when I suddenly walked right into Center City Philadelphia. It was weird - a big banner on the stage of the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre announced "PHILADELPHIA WELCOMES DELEGATES" and other signs told us we were at a 1960 presidential nominating convention. When the show started, Derek McLane's nifty set with rotating walls spun out to reveal a room in the Bellevue Stratford Hotel, which looked like the real thing from five decades back, down to the moldings.

Kathryn Segesser says she believes the current thinking about eating disorders may be wrong. Segesser suspects that for centuries, anorexia and bulimia have afflicted both men and women. She would like to challenge the popular theory that blames modern cultural pressures and unrealistic images of beauty projected by lollipop-thin models. "I'm trying to see if, in the 18th century, people understood that there was some psychological reason that people decided not to eat," Segesser said.

Senate confirms Cuba-born judge WASHINGTON - The first Cuban-born judge to serve on the Atlanta-based U.S. appellate court was confirmed Wednesday by an overwhelming vote that said much about the way the Senate operates these days. Despite strong support from both parties, including tea party favorite Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), the Senate had to break a filibuster to confirm U.S. District Judge Adalberto Jose Jordan, 94-5. The one-time clerk to now-retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is the newest member of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman asked the county coroner to examine the body of Cardinal Anthony J. Bevilacqua last week because the timing of the 88-year-old prelate's death struck her as "peculiar," she said Friday. Ferman acknowledged that she enlisted county Coroner Walter I. Hofman because the cardinal died one day after a Philadelphia judge said Bevilacqua could be called to testify at the child sex-abuse and endangerment trial of three current and former priests.

BRITNEY SPEARS ' surely fascinating medical history will continue to be private. L.A. Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz ruled yesterday that a company suing Britney won't receive the access it requested. That company makes perfume. Because of the conservatorship Britney has been under since 2008, she will not be required to give a deposition in the lawsuit from Brand Sense, which claims it helped negotiate a fragrance deal for Britney but then was cut out of the profits. There were profits?

The physician was full of bluster, threatening to sue the software vendor that had landed his practice in a quagmire as it tried to convert from paper medical files to an electronic database. "I'm feeling betrayed," he said last week, sitting in a crowded back office. Office manager Liz Wiener listened, letting the sound wash over her as she slumped over a conference table. Beth Schindele, Delaware's high-tech equivalent of the state agricultural extension agent, nodded her head in sympathy.
