SO Mayor Nutter takes a liberty with using "mild profanity" in the Danieal Kelly case, and Stu Bykofsky compares him to Flavor Flav and accuses him of potentially not caring about cop-killers? That's pretty weak. I understand that the honeymoon should be over by now, but if mild profanity from the mayor is his biggest misstep so far, I'll take it. Tim Dolan, Philadelphia

"SHE'S GOT THE mouth of a 7-year-old. " That's what our dentist told LaVeta a few months back when our 5-year-old daughter, Eve, began losing her teeth. LaVeta was glad to hear that our baby was ahead of her peers in yet another category. Me? I had a different perspective. Because the fact of the matter is, Eve doesn't have the mouth of a 7-year-old. She has the mouth of a 20-year-old. How else to explain her grown folks sayings, including her recent pronouncement that I'm always late because I "rush too slow.

Kyle Jones has a showroom's worth of drum sets in his mouth. He's got loud, crashing cymbals and ticking-bomb high-hat cymbals, turntables that stutter over single syllables and slurp across vinyl, basses that bellow in subwoofer range, congas and bongos and maybe a marimba. The man known to Roots fans as Scratch doesn't play an instrument, but he can emulate almost all of them. That's his calling: He's a one-man rhythm orchestra, a fast-tonguing Toscanini whose booms and baps are eerily realistic facsimiles of digital drum beats, organic re-creations as compelling, if not better than, the real thing.

New evidence suggested yesterday that the death of Gira the lion, who drowned last Friday at the Philadelphia Zoo, might have been caused partly by a large plastic ball that got stuck in her mouth. A zoo official confirmed yesterday that a ball was found in Gira's mouth after the 12-year-old lion drowned in the moat at the outdoor lion's den. According to a source who asked not to be named, workers at the zoo initially suspected that the beige "boomer ball," a toy for the zoo's three lions, had become stuck in Gira's mouth.

Looking west, you can see the low, gray women's quarters of the House of Correction, the mustard-colored guard vans patrolling between two barbed-wire fences and, beyond the trees, the guard tower of the Philadelphia Detention Center. Due south, tall metal cranes creakily rise and fall, loading the blue, red and green container cars at Northern Metal Co. Northward, all appears serene, although sometimes you can hear gunfire from the Police Academy pistol range on the other side of the trees.

People aboard a whale-watching boat Friday spotted a full-grown humpback whale off Cape May Point, with what appeared to be a gill net caught in its mouth. The 50-foot-long whale, weighing approximately 100,000 pounds, was seen six miles offshore, said Ron Robbins, captain of Holiday, which takes visitors on daily whale watches. "The whale was swimming freely, with the net from the bottom of its mouth," Robbins said last night. "There was a rope across its back with corks on it. . . . We were quite disturbed.

I was feeling pretty good when I went to see Stanley. Stanley is my dentist. I chose him because he meets the American Dental Association's single most important criterion for selecting a dental-care professional: He looks exactly like Willie Nelson. If Stanley put on a headband and got on stage at a country-music concert, the audience would absolutely believe he WAS Willie Nelson, except that instead of telling them not to let their babies grow up to be cowboys, he would tell them to floss.

Read his lips. No, not George Bush's lips, which are thin and tight, and promise no new taxes but not much in the romance department. Read, please, the kisser of the 1989 heartthrob. In 1969, the eyes had it: Remember swooning over Paul Newman's and Robert Redford's baby-blues? In 1979, we rhapsodized about the rippling muscles of urban cowboys Richard Gere and John Travolta, their eloquent body language. For the 1989 screen Romeo, the lips have it. Not since Brando and Belmondo has there been such a focus on actors with sensual mouths.

Last week, pot dealer Jason Kennedy told a federal court jury that when a Philadelphia narcotics officer burst into his condo with a sledgehammer in 2010, he thought he was being robbed. He tackled the man to the floor, he said, and was punched in the mouth for his efforts. "Do you like to fight?" Kennedy was asked as his testimony continued Tuesday. He replied: "Yeah, if I'm being attacked. " And for the rest of his time on the witness stand, Kennedy, 42, did everything but throw a punch at those asking the questions to try to prove it. The corruption trial of six members of an elite Philadelphia drug squad continued with blistering cross-examination of Kennedy - a three-hour verbal tussle that left both witness and defense counsel all but bruised and bloodied.

WHEN FLOYD Mayweather meets Manny Pacquiao next month, there's a good chance he'll put his money where his mouth is. And we're not talking about making a wager on the fight. Dr. Lee Gause, a New York dentist, has designed a special mouthpiece for Mayweather, aka "Money," that contains $100 bills. And yes, the bills are as real as the cost, reportedly $25,000. Gause, who owns Iceberg Guards, said that in addition to protecting against concussions, his mouthpieces help athletes breathe better, which increases performance.

HE'S NOT a toothless Tiger, but he's got one fewer incisor. Yesterday, Tiger Woods had one of his front teeth accidentally knocked out after surprising girlfriend Lindsey Vonn by showing up in Italy to watch her record-setting, 63rd World Cup victory. This time it wasn't a 7-iron that did the damage, it was a camera. "During a crush of photographers at the awards podium at the World Cup event in Italy, a media member with a shoulder-mounted video camera pushed and surged toward the stage, turned and hit Tiger Woods in the mouth," Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent, told the Associated Press in an email.

Louis Hartdegen may yet be judged for the 2013 slaying of his wife of 52 years, but it won't be in a Philadelphia courtroom. On Tuesday, the same day a judge set a date for Hartdegen's trial, the 76-year-old Northeast man neighbors once dubbed "the mayor of Castor Avenue" died. Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore confirmed Hartdegen's death and said he had died of a heart attack. Hartdegen had been held without bail in the city's prisons since he was arrested. Prison spokeswoman Shawn Hawes said Hartdegen was in the Detention Center and became ill Tuesday night, complaining of heart irregularities.

THINK IT SOUNDS fishy that largemouth bass swim in the Delaware River? Well, forget it. They do, and they're getting baited, bagged and tossed back. For the first time, the Bassmaster Elite Series is being held in Philadelphia, and yesterday's late-afternoon launch at Penn's Landing was anything but floundering. For the next three days, pro anglers and bass fishermen will have spectators and fishing fanatics hooked as the Elite pros troll the river to compete for a prize at the end of a four-day excursion.

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs should be sizzling in their Saturday home games this season - or, at least, their uniforms will. Strips of bacon will adorn the caps, jerseys, and pants of the Phillies' triple-A affiliate, one of three alternate uniforms unveiled Tuesday. "We worked tirelessly over the last year to develop new identities that not only embody the rich tradition of the Lehigh Valley, but also the spirit of the IronPigs and our fans," president and general manager Kurt Landes said on the team's website.

THE HARDEST part, of course, has to do with the kids. They know their daddy once was a granite block of a player, a man whose strength of character matched his formidable strength of body. The character remains. Kevin Turner walks without much problem; slimmer now, he strode into the huge downtown restaurant erect to attend the Bert Bell Memorial Award Dinner with a smooth step that recalled his five seasons as the Eagles' fullback. His mind is sharp. The ALS has taken everything else.

DOMINIC RAIOLA and Kevin Moen are usually not mentioned in the same breath, nor should they be. One ran over a college band member, while the other ran his mouth at college band members. Moen was a senior defensive back at Cal when he ran over Stanford University trombone player Gary Tyrrell en route to the end zone back in 1982. It has become an iconic moment, so much so that Tyrrell's trombone is on display at the College Football Hall of Fame. Raiola, the Detroit Lions' starting center, reportedly spent part of his pregame routine on Sunday verbally abusing the University of Wisconsin band, which was at Lambeau Field for its annual performance.
