On the outside, it has all the charm of a Depression-era train station. Inside, it indeed seems like a quaint relic from another time. But 73 years after it opened, the Palestra still rocks. The old gym on the Penn campus has hosted more games, more visiting teams and more NCAA tournament games than any other facility. When the fans are roaring and the bands are playing, it still is the best place anywhere to see college hoops. No human being can honestly and emphatically say how he or she would react to a crisis.

There's no house band, no purple velvet drapes, and few of the other expected trappings of a late-night talk show. Instead, Comedy Central's "Night After Night" is a comedy-centered talk show in its simplest form, a low-key alternative for viewers drained by the hyperactivity of Jay Leno's and Arsenio Hall's nightly productions. Comedian Allan Havey, the tall, cynical and curious star of "Night After Night," hosts from what appears to be a small office tucked away in the cable channel's New York headquarters.

It is a cold Monday night in late January, and what had started out reluctantly as a blizzard has now turned into an icy rain, affording the cars traveling the back roads of Bristol about as much traction as loose change on a marble floor. The groups of teenagers who usually loiter around the front door at the Grundy Recreation Center skating rink on Jefferson Street have been driven inside by the squall. Even the parking lot at the Easy Pieces go-go lounge on Route 413 is half-empty tonight.

The actual time and date of the Soviet nuclear accident in Chernobyl has finally been revealed by the Soviet government and it might be the most useful information about the dangers of using nuclear power. It occurred on Saturday, April 26, at l:23 a.m. For in looking at 12 accidents in American plants, I find that eight of them occurred at night, including the most famous one at Three Mile Island, which erupted at 12:30 a.m. on a Wednesday night in 1979. Another three accidents occurred on Friday night and one on Saturday night.

For 30 years, he sent a nation off to bed, and last night he made his final appearance with guests - in this case jousting with the machine-gun wit of Robin Williams and playing off the brassiness of onetime bathhouse singer Bette Midler. It took two minutes 15 seconds, and countless pleadings from Johnny Carson for the crowd in NBC's Studio One to sit down and stop cheering last night. Midler warbled a letter she had written titled "Dear Mr. Carson," and ended the show by lovingly singing "One More for My Baby" to a misty-eyed Carson.

like the zombies in "Night of the Living Dead" - trek to the polls in lockstep to pull the necessary levers and push the necessary buttons to re-elect the usual suspects who are slowly but inevitably destroying the city. The voters are to the city what the carpenters union is to the Convention Center. The voters keep re-electing the very people who are putting their power-driven egos ahead of improving the city, while the carpenters union would rather destroy the Convention Center than give up their own power-driven ego trip.

Alicia Keys is hardly the first artist to make rich, substantive music before age 21. It's only against the backdrop of today's pop wasteland that she comes as such a revelation. Friday night at the Tweeter Center, the multiple Grammy winner showed where her real gift lies. With the professionalism of a veteran, she was both ringmaster and leading lady, effortlessly guiding band and audience through her tapestry of moods and styles. In front of a sizable, rain-soaked crowd at the mostly open-air venue, Keys made live performance mean more than performing songs live.

Freeze Twin Peaks' three young lovelies at the Roadhouse under the evil eye of the murderous Windom Earle. Freeze the gorgeous John Justice Wheeler (those lips!, those lids!) in his room at the Great Northern, plotting his next move in the conquest of luscious Audrey "I'm only 18" Horne. Freeze Norma's sister, Annie, riding that bus back to Twin Peaks from the convent. ABC has sent Under Cover and Twin Peaks, its 9 and 10 o'clock Saturday- night dramas, off to indefinite hiatus, a place that can be more frightening in the minds of TV producers than any - in this dimension or another - that exists in the twisted town of Twin Peaks.

The post-punk cover band was tuning up. The ragtime piano player, his derby hat tilted just so, was hitting the bar. The evening's emcee, dazzling in a costume alighted with glow sticks, rehearsed a poem. It was time for Late Nite Cabaret, the unofficial after-party of the Fringe. First a few words from the man who makes it all happen. "Welcome to Late Nite Cabaret," said Scott Johnston on Thursday, taking the stage at Fergie's Pub, wearing a suit jacket over a Hawaiian shirt and eyeliner.

AS A SERVICE to families with young children, all Rams games should start at 10 o'clock on school nights. Sorry to those who drafted Todd Gurley No. 1 overall. A game against Seattle is probably not what you need right now. Here are some other things to look for in Week 2: Money matchups Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys: Playing at Washington, which was shredded by DeAngelo Williams for 143 yards and two late TDs. Eli Manning, QB, Giants: Gets a visit from the Saints, everybody's favorite fantasy opponent.

As September brings a much-welcome crispness to the air, the spike in scheduling and stress can suddenly heat up a happy household, especially around making dinner. With a little planning and prep, even the busiest family can enjoy home-cooked and healthful fare, even on days when sitting down together is impossible. One of the best ways to streamline supper is to get your whole household involved. And not just on the chores, but on the tasting and choosing of the menus. If you hope to get family members to take turns cooking and assembling family food, schedule a time to gather a few helpers for a weekend prepping and cooking session, and take the time to share knife skills, recipes, and other culinary lessons.

Churning up the Eastern Seaboard, Tropical Storm Hermine is expected to regain Category 1 hurricane-strength winds by Sunday night, clobbering the New Jersey and Delaware coasts, causing potentially deadly flooding, and robbing Shore merchants of one of their busiest three-day weekends of the year. Weather experts and state and county officials warned of high winds and tidal flooding not seen since the nor'easter in January that smacked much of the shoreline, left dunes flattened and streets flooded for days, if not weeks, and caused power outages throughout the region.

It is the cruelest game, a game that inserts a lefthanded pitcher with a 6.50 ERA against a first-place team that mashes lefthanders, and permits that pitcher to come within one strike of securing the best start of his career. Some fans at Citizens Bank Park clapped Wednesday night for Adam Morgan, who headed toward the dugout in the seventh inning of a 2-1 Phillies loss to Washington. "The best I've seen him - probably ever," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. But Morgan's effort was unfinished.

Reece Udinski played a huge role as North Penn ended its six-year, season-opening losing streak to La Salle. The senior quarterback completed 12 of 20 passes for 205 yards and four touchdowns as the quick-starting Knights downed the Explorers, 33-24, Friday night in a nonleague game at steamy Crawford Stadium. Due in large part to its strong beginnings against North Penn, La Salle arrived in Lansdale with a 7-1 advantage in the head-to-head series. This time, it was the Knights who came out of the gate with efficiency and purpose.

By Annie Dewitt Tyrant Books. 176 pp. $15. Reviewed by John Domini In the loam of literary America, few ingredients have proved so fertile as dysfunctional families. This needn't feel like a fallback. Quite the contrary, it can yield a sweet discovery like Annie Dewitt's debut, White Nights in Split Town City . Alive with the poetry of a shaken pubescent girl walking on eggshells at home, the novel then goes one better, getting its narrator out into a wider community - one she discovers is riddled with cracks.

Neshaminy quarterback Mason Jones provided steady scoring from the second quarter on to help the host Redskins hold off Roman Catholic, 28-20, on the opening night of football on Friday. After both teams failed to score in the first quarter, Jones found Will Dogba on a 22-yard touchdown pass and Zach Treadway from 47 yards out in the second quarter. He finished with 197 passing yards on 16 attempts in that span. In the final quarter, Jones ran for a 7-yard score to put the Redskins up for good.
