The war in Iraq has claimed its first American journalist, an iconoclastic editor and columnist who energized several national magazines and routinely harassed many of the nation's political leaders. When Michael Kelly, 46, died Thursday in a humvee accident while traveling with the Third Infantry Division, he held two jobs: Washington Post columnist and Atlantic Monthly editor-at-large. He had covered much ground since 1991, when he made a big splash as a magazine writer tearing around Kuwait during the first Gulf War. His first-person accounts - such as the time he was on the road, eluding Pentagon press restrictions, and stumbled upon a squad of Iraqi soldiers who tried to surrender to him - led to prestigious peacetime jobs: political writer at the New York Times; editor of the New Republic and later the National Journal; Washington correspondent for the New Yorker.

For the last 13 years, Joan Mazzotti has made a public career of helping low-income, first-generation students from Philadelphia's public high schools get into and through college. Quietly, she and her husband, Michael Kelly, also have made it a personal mission in the case of two Haitian-born orphans, who received their degrees Sunday at Haverford College, a selective, liberal arts school on the Main Line. In true fashion as the stand-in parents they have become to Ralph and Ruben Alexis, Mazzotti and Kelly got to the ceremony early and staked out seats in the fourth row. They took video as Ralph Alexis, 21, a French major, stepped on stage at the Alumni Field House to receive his diploma along with nearly 300 graduates.

A neurologically impaired woman who was tormented during a night of mayhem last February saw the last two of the four people she had considered friends sentenced yesterday to six months in county jail and a year of probation. Michael Kelly, 21, and Tanya Thompson, 19, pleaded guilty in October to beating up and forcing the victim to masturbate in front of them. Two others, John Johnston, 19, and Wendy Hood, 21, had pleaded guilty and were sentenced last spring to similar penalties.

An Eagleville man faces charges of making false reports after he told police that four people had carjacked his Buick. In reality, police said, one of those he accused had actually bought the car from him two nights earlier. Those who were accused, said Cpl. Michael Kelly of the township police, told officers that Cory Smaglik had sold the car for $300. Police said that though Smaglik, who is white, told police that black people had taken his car, they did not view race as an issue in the matter.

In the visually gripping IMAX drama Everest , doomed climbers pause just before their final drive to the summit and ponder their motives. They repeat the old line about climbing the mountain because it's there, but are pressed for something more original, honest, or illuminating. Most are stymied, but one says that, given a chance to experience the majesty of a moment at the top of the world, "it would be a crime not to. " OK, but the slow-motion carnage of the next day in 1996, when eight climbers died on overcrowded slopes, raised another question at the time: Was it a crime, of sorts, for unqualified climbers to expect professional guides to haul them to the summit, at foolish risk to the lives of all involved?

A review by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Inspector General found no evidence that the former head of the Philadelphia Housing Authority misused any federal money on a female staffer with whom he had an improper relationship. In a statement released this week, the Inspector General's Office said Michael P. Kelly did not misuse agency funds on gifts or unfairly promote Audrey Lim, a former member of his senior staff. Kelly, who is married, abruptly resigned June 15, after admitting having an affair with Lim, who also left the agency.

DEAR MICHAEL KELLY, Thanks a lot for nothing. Your affair with a female co-worker that led to your resignation this week was just about the worst miscalculation that a PHA boss could make, especially one whose job was to clean up and restore integrity following the Carl Greene scandal. We're sure this is a trauma for you and your family, but we thought it fair to remind you just how much damage this indiscretion has created for those you left behind: In case you're not aware, public housing is not exactly on the top-10 lists of popular public institutions.

THE STATE HOUSE is expected to vote Wednesday on legislation changing how members are appointed to the Philadelphia Housing Authority, just as the agency is being rocked by a new sex scandal.   The legislation, approved in a 49-0 vote in the state Senate on Dec. 5, would increase the board from five members to nine. State Rep. Mike McGeehan of Northeast Philly opposes the change, saying that PHA's governance should not be tinkered with while there are ongoing probes into the management by former executive director Carl Greene, who secretly settled sexual-harassment suits filed against him. In Wednesday's House floor debate on the legislation, McGeehan plans to cite the revelation Tuesday that Greene's replacement, Michael Kelly, resigned on Friday after an investigation showed he had an affair with a woman he put in charge of human resources at PHA. "You can bet they're going to get a one-two shot right between the eyes," McGeehan said.

Michael P. Kelly acknowledged Tuesday that he abruptly resigned last week as executive director of the Philadelphia Housing Authority after federal officials learned of his affair with a PHA manager. Kelly, 58, is the second PHA director in two years to be toppled by a sex scandal. His predecessor, Carl R. Greene, was terminated in 2010 after PHA's board learned of secret payments of more than $600,000 to three women to settle sexual harassment complaints. In an interview with The Inquirer on Tuesday, Kelly, a married father of three, called the matter "a lapse of judgment and a personal family failure.

More than a year ago, Michael Kelly landed arguably the hardest job in town: helming the Philadelphia Housing Authority in the aftermath of Carl Greene. A three-decade housing veteran with tours in New York, Washington, and New Orleans, Kelly specializes in the recovery of troubled agencies, but PHA was in a class by itself. Greene, the autocratic executive paid more than the U.S. secretary of housing and urban development, left in the wake of multiple sexual harassment complaints.

NOT TOO MANY years ago, she might have mistaken a basketball for a pumpkin. Now, Jamal Nwaniemeka says his mother, Erika, "is like my second coach. " You know how Conwell-Egan High is in Fairless Hills/Levittown and Saint Joseph's University is in the Wynnefield section of West Philly? Well, Nwaniemeka attends the first and lives moments from the second and his mother, who works near C-E, is his chauffeur. That leaves lots of times for hoop talk. "When I started playing, my mom didn't know a thing about basketball," said Nwaniemeka, a 6-2, 180-pound senior wing guard.
