A MODERN mania is about to descend upon us: March Madness. Sixty-eight colleges and universities will send their basketball teams into a tournament that will end with one team recognized as national champion. And the other 67? All fails, but not major fails: This tournament is such a big deal that just qualifying gets you bragging rights. People will watch, which is fine, unless they are supposed to be doing something else - driving trains, directing traffic, wiring a GFI circuit, proofing a million-dollar contract or running those budget numbers for the coming staff meeting.

PHILADELPHIA A Philadelphia judge has awarded $75,000 in damages to a city police officer who sued, claiming superiors retaliated against him after he complained of shoddy asbestos removal at the Police Athletic League center he managed. Thursday's award by Common Pleas Court Judge John Milton Younge followed a Feb. 27 verdict by a trial jury in the whistle-blower suit by Officer Paul Zenak against the Police Department and city. Younge ordered that Zenak, 44, a 23-year veteran officer, be returned to his job as manager of the PAL center at Wissinoming United Methodist Church, 4419 Comly St., and reimbursed $75,000 for 2711/2 days of leave he used after suing and $411 in medical expenses.

PHILADELPHIA A federal judge chastised prosecutors Thursday for failing to devote what he deemed to be sufficient manpower to a racketeering conspiracy case against members of a Philadelphia ironworkers union, even as government lawyers said they would likely file additional charges against the men.

State Sen. LeAnna Washington, a Democrat who for two decades has represented parts of Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties, was charged Wednesday with using legislative staff to raise money for her campaigns. Ending a yearlong investigation, the state Attorney General's Office said Washington spent at least $30,000 and possibly more than $100,000 in taxpayer funds to plan and promote a gala fund-raiser for her birthday each July. The 30-page grand jury report outlining the case portrays a brazen legislator who behind closed doors flouted the same ethical rules that she trumpeted in public.

For nearly a decade, the complaints against Philadelphia Police Officer Kevin Corcoran just kept coming. There's one for allegedly entering a man's house in South Philadelphia without permission, and breaking his face with punches and kicks. There's another for allegedly slamming a man headfirst into a newspaper box in Old City, beating him bloody after the Phillies' World Series parade. The nine-year veteran has been sued four times for excessive force - with the city twice settling for undisclosed amounts.

Here's what Cirque-Éloize's Cirkopolis is not: it is not a Ringling Brothers three-ringer with animals. It is not a Cirque du Soleil clown-led marathon fantasia. It is not a stripped-down 7 Fingers celebration of muscle and raw magnetism. It is instead a crisp 90-minute high-concept theater-dance performance punctuated by circus acrobatics, featuring some very cool video, and backed by Stéfan Boucher's eclectic original music, which alternately evokes pop, swing, and alt-rock.
