The Fourth of July concert broadcast from the Parkway might have made performers sound more profane than they actually were, an apologetic Mayor Nutter said Monday, 10 days after the show. "I'm very sorry for anyone who could've been offended," Nutter said during an impromptu news conference. After receiving complaints about high use of curse words by performers during the live show, the mayor reviewed tapes of all the performances. He said three artists - the comedian and host Marlon Wayans, the rapper Nikki Minaj, and Vicci Martinez, a pop newcomer - were the only ones to curse on stage.

AS ADMINISTRATIONS draw to a close, it's common for top aides to peel off for the private sector. Yesterday, Mayor Nutter, with 18 months left in his second term, announced the departures of three officials who have been with his administration from the beginning. One of them, however, is leaving some unfinished business. Suzanne Biemiller, a top Nutter aide who has been leading the administration's effort to sell Philadelphia Gas Works, is stepping down to become chief of staff for the American Board of Internal Medicine.
