Hello there Michael was half an hour early for Mihir's 30th birthday party, but there was already one person sitting in the festively decorated restaurant booth. "I see this girl, with lovely long hair, busy texting on her phone," he remembered. "The birthday boy told me to get there early to greet people," Sophia explained. The inevitable conversation about how they both knew their mutual friend led to some remarkable discoveries. Sophia and Michael grew up mere blocks from each other in Somerton.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My friend's husband is obnoxious and offensive, and I'm out of serenity. I just want to leave now, but our lives are entangled. I feel like a heel waiting out mutual obligations to make my exit, but I don't see any good in telling them what's going on. My friend will just see one more person denigrating her husband. She seems happy and she's repeatedly assured me she's happy with him. Her husband generally gets defensive and is unable to admit fault.

DEAR ABBY : I have been dating "Jerry," who committed a crime years ago. He and a friend participated in several robberies. Jerry was unarmed and no one was hurt, although the victims were traumatized. Jerry was caught, served time in prison and has reformed his life. He finished college, was married for many years, is a devoted father to his children and holds an excellent job. Although I know he has done everything possible to redeem himself, I can't help wondering what kind of person he is DEEP DOWN.

The crime was shocking in its brutality: 19-year-old Daquan Crump was found dead at a Northeast Philadelphia construction site - shot 11 times in the head. Why he was killed, it turned out, was petty and senseless. Malik Anderson, a childhood friend, was angry that Crump had kept $60 he owed Anderson from the sale of a stolen PlayStation 3 console. A Common Pleas Court jury on Wednesday found Anderson, 19, guilty of first-degree murder, and Judge Steven R. Geroff sentenced him to life without parole.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I may just need a swift kick ... but, I have a friend who constantly bails at the last minute. I am OK with being the one who puts in the effort and always know when I make plans that she's going to bail, so I'll probably end up with a nice evening to read/watch a movie/whatever. Well, I'm getting married, and have invited her to my wedding. When a mutual friend of ours got married, she RSVP'd yes but didn't show. My bridal shower is tomorrow and she canceled today.

Daquan Crump, the 19-year-old who was shot 10 times in the head and face and then left in a Northeast Philadelphia construction site nearly two weeks ago, was killed by a childhood friend over $60, the proceeds of a stolen PlayStation 3 video-game system, police said Wednesday. "In their mind, this is worth a human life," Homicide Capt. James Clark said at a news conference announcing the arrest of 18-year-old Malik Anderson. "Because I didn't get a cut of a $60 profit from a used PlayStation game, I'm going to stand over top and shoot a kid that I've been friends with since I was 10, 11 years old," Clark said.

Hello there One night in summer 2010, Adrienne's friend and coworker Alex attended a bachelor party. Alex was hanging out with Kirk, a friend since their grade-school days at St. Anne's in Port Richmond, and before long he was telling Kirk how great Adrienne is, and how great he thought they would be together. Back at work at Ciardi Ciardi & Astin on Monday, Alex gave Adrienne, a bankruptcy and corporate litigation attorney, Kirk's phone number. And with Adrienne's permission, gave hers to Kirk.

THURSDAY'S SESSIONS with Chip Kelly, Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman gave us a little more insight into the stunning turnaround that led to Kelly being named the Eagles' coach, 10 days after telling the Eagles he was staying at Oregon. What seems apparent now is that the matter was never really completely dead. The way Kelly told it Thursday, he wanted to go to the Eagles after that 9-hour meeting Saturday, Jan. 5, but didn't feel comfortable making a life-altering decision under such scrutiny.
