Smoke and mirrors. That's what Harrisburg has produced from its embarrassing 60-day budget saga. The smoke is everywhere. From most angles, you can't even see the mirrors. Higher sales taxes on everything from cigarettes to pizza will hit consumers directly. So will the 50 percent increase in the personal income tax. Indirectly, whopping increases in a wide range of business taxes will end up costing Pennsylvania consumers, as companies pass those increases on to customers.

It's in his face, his words, the way he shrugs his shoulders at questions and looks out blankly, without answers, when asked to dissect what's going wrong with his team. Rick Tocchet is tired, frustrated, and unhappy - kind of like the team he captains, the struggling Flyers, in last place in the Patrick Division at the All-Star break. Trade rumors swirl. Doubts and questions surface. Criticism rains down. And the puck keeps missing the net. "I've been doing better, I'm just not scoring," said Tocchet, who was held scoreless in last night's 4-3 loss to the New York Islanders.

Under first-year head coach Jim O'Brien, the 76ers are looking to play an up-tempo style that is predicated on taking care of the ball, hitting more than an occasional outside shot, and creating opportunities on the fastbreak. In other words, playing like the Phoenix Suns. The Suns' style is a mirror image of the way the Sixers want to play. But Phoenix has two major advantages - more quickness and the ability to close the issue from the perimeter. That was clearly evident when Phoenix crashed the Sixers' home-opening party last night with a 108-98 win at the Wachovia Center.

NOTHING IS WORKING the way it should - and inequities, which have always plagued us, grow worse. Yes, I know, old people are always lamenting that the world is going downhill. But today's older generation may be the first that's right. The extraordinary American system of government, which worked so well over the years, no longer does. Based on an ingenious, but delicate, balance of powers that functions through cooperation and compromise, it's bogged down in partisan bickering, extremist pressures and antiquated procedures.

"Randall to the Rescue," trumpeted the Daily News. "Cunningham foils Cowboys at finish," The Inquirer enthused. It was another exciting Eagles finale, almost a mirror image of the losing effort four weeks earlier against the Indianapolis Colts, when quarterback Jack Trudeau took his team down the length of the field to snatch a victory on the final play. But no Philadelphian was marveling back then at Mr. Trudeau's clutch performance. The emphasis was entirely on how the Eagles blew it. Well guys, did Dallas blow it Sunday?

A Philadelphia prosecutor seeking once again to bring developer Ernest A. Edwards Jr. to trial on theft charges that were thrown out by a city judge last month said this week that the city's legal strategy would be a "mirror image" of the one that failed in July. Testimony resumed yesterday before Common Pleas Court Judge Levy Anderson in the second preliminary hearing for Edwards and his former construction- company partner, W. Oscar Harris Jr., who are charged with the theft of more than $200,000 in funds from the MOVE rebuilding project.

MILWAUKEE - When it comes to star power, even the Arizona Diamondbacks acknowledge they're no match for the Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee has a pair of MVP candidates in Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder and pulled the surprise of the offseason when they traded for standout starter Zack Greinke. The Diamondbacks' biggest star is Justin Upton - and even he feels as if he and his teammates get lost in the shuffle. "We're just a bunch of guys nobody ever heard about," Upton said.

If there was one phrase that irked critics of Lower Merion School District's 69-page report on how, when, and why it secretly activated webcams on student laptops, it might have been the two words in large type on the cover: How, some wondered, could the review truly be independent if the investigators were lawyers and computer experts hired by the school district? On Wednesday, a federal judge took a step that could quell those concerns, ordering the district to share some of its computer evidence with a consultant for the family suing Lower Merion over the webcam monitoring.

Tonight, when Camden Catholic basketball coach Jim Crawford looks down the floor of the Izod Center at opponent Trenton Catholic, the resemblance will be hard to ignore. "There are a lot of similarities between the two of us," Crawford said. "We have experience, they have experience. We have balanced scoring, they have balanced scoring. We have good size inside; they have good size inside. They don't mind a slow tempo; we don't mind a slow tempo. " All of which means the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions final in East Rutherford, N.J., between top-seeded Camden Catholic and second-seeded Trenton Catholic could be one of the most evenly matched title games in the history of the tournament.
