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.

DEAR ABBY: I'm 15. My problem is I often mouth off and insult people. When I'm asked to explain why I said what I did, I answer with, "I don't know" or a shrug. It's the truth. It upsets me that I act this way, and I have lost friends because of it. My parents think counseling and therapy are a coward's way out, and I don't want to go to my school counselors because they'll tell my parents or the state. Is it a blatant choice not to care, something subconscious, or a possible disorder?

Q: I have been married for 25 years and cannot believe I have not been getting oral sex for the last 10 years. When we were dating, she would do anything. Now, she says she is too old to do that. We have seen multiple doctors about it. She just doesn't want to do it anymore. Am I one of the few who is going through this? Thanks for your input. Mia: If you want your wife to open her mouth, then dude, you need to open yours first. Ask her to explain what's going on. You write that you've been to doctors.

Former Gov. Ed Rendell thinks U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who some Democrats had hoped would run for president, is not even qualified to be Hillary Clinton's pick for vice president. Speaking on Rich Zeoli's show on 1210 WPHT on Wednesday, Rendell said Warren is "not in any way, shape, or form ready to be commander-in-chief. " Rendell later called back to temper his assessment. "I didn't want to leave it hanging out there about Elizabeth Warren," he said, adding that he liked her. "Elizabeth Warren's problem would be the same problem I'd have.

By his own admission, Jim Norton has a hard time meeting folks who share his interests. But when those interests include illicit massage parlors, urolagnia, and transgender prostitutes, maybe some difficulty is to be expected. "It's very common to not have the same interests as Jim Norton," the stand-up comedian said during recent phone interview. "A lot of people don't have the same interests as me. " They do, however, seem to like watching him do stand-up. Norton, a New Jersey native, started as a comic in 1990 and quickly became known for his politically incorrect humor.

Look, ma, no hands. That may sound flip, but when you see Jessica Ruiz do makeup by sticking a brush between her teeth, you see where I'm going with this. That's right. She uses her mouth. Ruiz has no other choice. Because of a congenital birth defect, Ruiz can barely lift her arms. Raising her hands to touch even her own face is impossible. So, her mouth acts as a substitute for her hands. She may be a first. Who has ever seen a makeup artist apply cosmetics by sticking a brush in her mouth?

D EAR ABBY: My wife and I have been together for 10 years. As all couples do, we've had our ups and downs, but we love each other very much. Two months ago, we welcomed our first son into our family; we are overjoyed. Raising a newborn has its challenges because babies don't come with an owner's manual. Our communication has always been good, and we work hard in our relationship to keep it that way. When we disagree, we try not to fight in front of the baby or raise our voices.
