REP. MARK Cohen has called for a "state-system college" for Philadelphia. In fact, Cheyney University, part of the state university system, has had an urban campus in Philadelphia for years, offering graduate degrees and certification programs in education. My understanding is that Cheyney would be happy to expand their course offerings in Philadelphia, perhaps even extending them to undergraduates. So there is a strong base on which to build. And, since Cheyney has an agreement with Community College of Philadelphia about accepting CCP students, there could be a smooth transition.

Starved for sports triumphs as Philadelphia is, you'd think more would have been made of the Wings winning the National Lacrosse League championship last weekend in Toronto. Granted, lacrosse isn't considered a "major" sport - but it's fast and it's exciting and it's gaining popularity (a record crowd of more than 19,000 watched the Wings edge the Toronto Rock in the title game). What's more, Philadelphia has won six titles since they began big-league professional competition.
