He is who he is. Robert Levin - pianist, scholar, lecturer, stand-up comic, and relentless revisionist - gave an all-Mozart recital for a Philadelphia Chamber Music Society audience that's used to being talked to, but maybe not so much. His choice of music Thursday at the American Philosophical Society was intentionally offbeat, his way of performing it was invasive, and his manner a bit overbearing. But in a world of cultivated yet standardized performances, Levin poured some cold water on your ears, shook you out of your Mozartean comfort zone, and revealed not only the inner workings of selected piano sonatas, but also the composer's thinking process.

AS I WAS WATCHING the news the other day, I saw two people being interviewed by reporters - Moammar Gadhafi and Charlie Sheen. After the interviews, I started thinking about these two characters, and I came to the conclusion that these two are cut from the same mold. They are both in denial about the truth going on around them. They need to put these two clowns in a hospital or crazy house. Gregory Betancourt Philadelphia

Emily Pollard is a plastic surgeon who doesn't believe in scrubs outside of the operating room. "It's disrespectful to my patients," said the fiftysomething Ardmore doc with the modest closet space - not including her shoe niche and her special place for bags - that she's packed with oodles of style. Her philosophy is simple: Dresses are best in muted prints. Suits should be bold solids. And there is no point in mixing more than one texture or print within an outfit. Leave that to the style professionals, she said.

In the end, it was probably Dinky. In the parlor. With dander. The clues all pointed to him, but South Jersey medical examiner Gerald Feigin wanted to rule out other suspects first. Now, Feigin has deduced that his own mutt, Dinky Little Dog, has been slowly "killing me. " The Chihuahua-terrier mix looks innocent as he snoozes by the sofa, but Dinky's black-and-white fur has been harboring tiny doses of allergens from sloughed-off skin cells. Feigin began sleeping in a backyard tent in June to escape a mysterious illness he blamed on invisible mold mycotoxins inside his tony home in Washington Township.

When it comes to the housing market for foreclosures - buyer beware. "One mistake that we see all the time is buyers going in and assuming all the mechanicals are working," said Brandon T. Johnson, president of GTJ Consulting in Roseville, Mich. "You have to be careful you don't get burned that way. " Johnson's company maintains foreclosed homes for a number of lenders, Realtors and Freddie Mac. He said the term "as is" shouldn't scare buyers off as long as they know what it means.

Raised in the suburbs but educated at Temple University, they decided to set down roots in the town where they went to college.

Dozens of South Jersey homeowners, claiming inferior workmanship may have triggered mold growth and created a health risk, have sued the Quaker Group, a residential and commercial developer in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The homeowners, who live in upscale developments in Cherry Hill, Marlton, and Voorhees, all have the same complaint: The company failed to caulk around windows and doors and neglected to install flashing, sheet metal strips that seal the edges. Water seeped into their homes and pooled between their walls, where mold can thrive, according to two complaints filed at different times in Camden County.
