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.

Q: I'm starting my freshman year in college and am leaving my high-school boyfriend behind. I expect to find new romantic partners, but I don't want to get a bad reputation. 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.

By Matt Bergheiser Imagine applying to 42 jobs in three months and not landing a single interview. Imagine what it feels like to realize that even jobs at the lowest rungs of the career ladder require online applications when you haven't turned on a computer in years. Imagine being so desperate for income that you'll ride two trains and a bus for a chance at back-breaking day labor that might not even materialize. This story line is typical for citizens returning from prison, as a criminal conviction is often a career-ender, creating devastating impacts for individuals, families, and communities.

Question: My longtime partner is, in many ways, a wonderful woman. I definitely will be her committed companion for as long as we both shall live. However, she is a total slob. Our living room is kept up fairly well, but the bedroom looks as if a tornado has just come through. The bathroom has cosmetic-type junk strewn all around. The kitchen has flies buzzing around the unwashed dishes. She has been like this for as long as I have known her (about 35 years). I myself am conscientious about cleanliness.

Question: I have been dating a wonderful man for about six months. We love each other and see a future together. He is a recovering addict, which isn't exactly the problem.

He just made it to 15 months and I feel like I'm looking for signs of a relapse and living in fear of one. How do I manage this?

COZY OR NOIR? Thriller or mystery? Talking cat or working dog? Whatever your poison in literary murder and mayhem, there's a book for you. And chances are good that a dog or cat is a character in his own right, either as a four-footed detective or as a sidekick to a human protagonist. Think Lilian Jackson Braun's Siamese sleuths Koko and Yum Yum, who first made an appearance about 50 years ago; or feline Mrs. Murphy, her Persian nemesis Pewter, and their corgi buddy Tee Tucker in the Mrs. Murphy series by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown.

For a native such as David Waxman, Philadelphia's current building boom is one for the books. "It's crazy," said Waxman, who, with Aaron Smith and Jacob Roller, is developing for-sale and mixed-use properties as MM Partners. "I grew up here," said Waxman, a graduate of Friends Select School and Boston University. "I've never seen anything like it. " The trio has long focused on Brewerytown - the five-story Braverman Building at 2617-19 W. Girard Ave. is their latest - but MM Partners' $45 million in completed projects since its start in 2008 are not limited to one neighborhood.
