The 177 partners at Morgan Lewis & Bockius, the city's largest and the nation's seventh largest law firm, earned $250,000 each in profits during 1986, the highest of any Philadelphia law firm, according to a survey released by The American Lawyer, a publication that reports on the legal profession. However, the amount disbursed in profits to Morgan Lewis' partners, only placed them in a tie for 56th place among the nation's top 99 law firms. The 41 partners at the New York law firm of Wacthell Lipton Rosen & Katz topped the charts, with each partner taking $1.4 million in profits out of the firm's net earnings, the New York-based publication said.

How many sexual partners is too many? If I have more than a dozen, am I a slut? What's the average for a normal woman?   Mia: The number of men you choose to sleep with is between you and God, if you are a believer.

WILMINGTON - If Philadelphia has a second casino built, SugarHouse Casino could see its revenue drop by 24 percent, a gaming consultant testified in Chancery Court on Thursday. Because of shifts in the competitive local market for gaming, the owners of SugarHouse would be prudent to scale back their expansion plans, said Steven Rittvo, president of Innovation Group, a casino advisory firm. In 2009, when SugarHouse broke ground on Delaware Avenue in Fishtown, the goal was to have expanded the size and scope of the casino by now, including doubling the number of slots to 3,000 and adding a 10-story parking garage.

City Councilman James Kenney is to introduce legislation Thursday that would give a tax credit to employers who provide health-care benefits to same-sex partners, saying his bill would make Philadelphia, already a popular city for gays and lesbians to live, even more so. "A lot of changes we are making will make Philadelphia more attractive to LGBT people and make them want to settle here," Kenney said. "They are good job creators, good taxpayers, and good employees. " His legislation also would guarantee partners of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people the right to visit their loved ones in hospitals and make medical decisions for them.

On Wednesday, the Simpatico Theatre Project will open previews of The It Girl , an unusual theatrical take on the life of silent-screen star Clara Bow, in the Drake's spanking-new Louis Bluver Theatre, a flexible 75-seat auditorium.

ISSUE | UNIVERSITY CITY Community partners In Friday's column , Inga Saffron reached an inescapable conclusion: Universities were complicit in postwar urban-renewal programs that failed to sustain strong, diverse neighborhoods. She suggested that requiring payments in lieu of taxes (PILOTs) by nonprofit institutions is the logical form of redress. But that narrative fails to account for 20 years of successful efforts in University City. And the conclusion is shortsighted - no program of PILOTs could match the impact that anchor institutions make today.
