Like most good ideas, Teen Dreams is based on a simple concept: Give three poor and troubled teenagers a video camera and a license to film stories of young lives that have turned into variations on a nightmare. Chilling, depressing but always compelling, the results ought to be required viewing for Washington politicians busy cutting away what's left of the safety net. Adwana, a blonde waif and a refugee from an abusive family in Arkansas, gives us a jolting look at the lives of street kids hustling for money on Hollywood Boulevard.

President Reagan's dream of a Strategic Defense Initiative - dubbed "Stars Wars" - that could render enemy nuclear missiles "impotent and obsolete" is rapidly turning into an extremely expensive and potentially dangerous nightmare. More and more scientists, including a number in the administration, admit that creating an impenetrable shield to protect us is impossible. Only 5 to 10 percent of the deployed Soviet warheads would kill half the urban population. SDI would not stop cruise missiles, low-flying bombers or commandos with nuclear devices in satchels.

RE DEBORAH Leavy's Gore/Obama "dream team" op-ed: Excellent column. I have been harping on this dream team since I saw Mr. Obama's speech at the DNC in '04 - he's a near-perfect candidate in many ways, but I feel that he's too inexperienced in national politics to be an effective president. But vice president? Marvelous. Teaming with Al Gore would create the finest possible combination, especially as their initials create such an obviously catchy slogan: Gore/Obama '08! Go GO Team!

From day one, this has been a disaster. It's a nightmare, and God knows when it's going to end . . . - Gwen Ford, 6200 block Osage Ave. Those words would surprise no one soon after May 13, 1985, the day the city's confrontation with MOVE erupted in flames that claimed 11 lives and 61 homes, including Gwen Ford's. But they were uttered last week - nearly 10 years later. It seems to have no end . . . Not for those who lost homes, possessions - and their trust.

Both parties have selected leaders with little experience to run a nation, let alone deal with foreign affairs. One candidate stands at the top of the ticket, the other is at the bottom. So why the fuss? Let?s face it, the most important issues in the minds of the American people are oil and the war. If the Republicans win, there?s a chance that we?ll dig for oil and salvage what remains of a cancerous economy. If it?s the Democrats, we can expect troop withdrawals that will leave the Iraqi people fending for themselves.

How deeply and profoundly sad that Anthony Sciamanna felt so burdened and alone in his sole-caretaking role that he ended his ill wife's life (Inquirer, July 25). Sciamanna wondered where everyone was when his wife was sick and alive. It is tragic in a country with so many resources that people feel there is no one to turn to for help. Most of the time there are caring, loving and willing people available to help out in times of need but until we erase the shame some folks feel in asking for help, that assistance will go to waste and, as in Sciamanna's case, needless heartbreak will be occur.

Phillies reliever Larry Andersen said this is the most exciting part of a professional career that began 23 years ago. It's certainly better than 1986 when, as a Houston Astro, he watched "that little bleep ruin it for everyone. " The little bleep, of course, was Lenny Dykstra, whose home run as a New York Met beat the Astros in Game 3 of that National League Championship Series, and whose ninth-inning triple in Game 6 sparked a three-run rally that sent the game into extra innings.

Yesterday's game was only seconds old when Mike Gminski made it clear there would be no repeat of the gruesome "Nightmare in Richfield," in which he and the Sixers had played such hapless roles two days earlier. He boxed in his nemesis, Brad Daugherty, and denied him a shot on the Cavaliers' first possession. Just 2 1/2 minutes into the contest, Gminksi nailed a jump hook. And he hustled his way into early foul trouble, picking up two by the midway point of the first quarter. Gminski held Daugherty to 25 points, as opposed to 34 two days ago, and along with Rick Mahorn and Charles Barkley, controlled the Cavaliers' inside game as the Sixers advanced to the second round of the NBA playoffs with a 113-97 victory.

Travis Dredd is an ex-Marine, so not much scares him - except the thought of a failed balloon drop at the Democratic National Convention's climactic moment Thursday night. "Since 2004, that's been my nightmare," said Dredd, 45, deputy chief executive for the Democratic National Convention operations. "In 2004, they didn't fall right away. I have nightmares about that happening again. " As much as Dredd supports Hillary Clinton, his current gig is anything but political. Dredd is in charge, on behalf of the entire Democratic party, of making sure that everything is set up for the convention at the Wells Fargo arena.

Q: I have tried in vain to get a refund from American Airlines. On a recent flight back to Bermuda, we experienced hours of delays caused by weather. Finally, our flight was canceled, and chaos ensued. The line to see an agent was two to three hours long, and I was carrying a sleeping child. Agents were yelling, "Call American Airlines!" I had an international cellphone, but called and was told there was a wait time of two hours. Then the agents were yelling at the crowd to use AA.com to rebook their flights.

An 11-year-old Montgomery County boy awoke in his bunk bed one night last November and heard noises coming from the bottom bunk, where his 6-year-old sister slept. At first, he thought she was having a nightmare. Instead, the girl was "living her worst nightmare," a prosecutor told jurors Tuesday. "A strange man in her bed, at 4 o'clock in the morning, lights off, as he sexually assaulted her. " Assistant District Attorney M. Stewart Ryan offered that description in opening arguments at the trial of Oscar Herrera, a 29-year-old Hatfield man accused of breaking into the family's apartment and raping the girl.

THE STOCK market capped the first two weeks of 2016 with a steep slide Friday that sent the Dow Jones industrial average down nearly 400 points. All three major stock indexes - the Dow, the Nasdaq composite and the Standard & Poor's 500 - are now in what's known as a correction, or a drop of 10 percent or more from their recent peaks. The market has been on a stomach-churning ride since the start of the year, wrenched up - but mostly down - because of alarm over a slowdown in China and the plunging price of oil to its lowest level in 12 years.

OF ALL THE absurdities produced during the seventh inning of Wednesday night's American League playoff game between Texas and Toronto, the most bizarre was this: Losing pitcher: Cole Hamels. For those who argue that a pitcher's won-lost record is the most meaningless of all baseball statistics, this should be the all-time Exhibit A. Approaching and then surpassing his 100th pitch that inning, Hamels induced four consecutive garden-variety ground balls, including a tailor-made doubleplay ball.

Financial decisions can have consequences that outlive the people who make them. In the case of three women, two in South Philadelphia and one in Delaware County, the decision to take out a reverse mortgage - a special kind of loan that allows borrowers 62 and older to convert a portion of their home's equity into cash - has made their lives a nightmare. All three were younger than their spouses and not yet 62, which meant they did not qualify for these mortgages and could not be co-borrowers.

The white teddy bear was left behind by a previous occupant in the rowhouse that Glenn Mancini started to renovate last year at 2020 Master St. The bear holds a heart that promises, "You are special. " It sits alone in the gutted first floor as a mocking reminder. "I couldn't get rid of it," Mancini said. He had plans for 2020 Master and the neighboring house at 2022. Mancini submitted those ideas to the Philadelphia Housing Authority, the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority, and City Council President Darrell L. Clarke's offices.

The foreclosure nightmare that haunted U.S. homeowners during and after the Great Recession has loosened its grip considerably in most states. In New Jersey, the bad dream just gets scarier. Foreclosures there are 17 percent higher than they were in 2014, and bank repossessions of homes are up 18 percent, the housing-analytics firm RealtyTrac reported last week - even as the rest of the country logged the lowest foreclosure numbers in eight years. One in every 234 homes in the state with a mortgage is in some stage of the foreclosure process - the fifth-highest rate in the nation.
