MOST PEOPLE post what they ate for lunch, brag about their kids or lament a slow workday on their Facebook status. Omar Woods of Kensington confessed a crime: "I'm on da run for 3 attemed [sic] murders. " That status update, along with photos that Woods later posted of himself with a handgun jammed in his waistband, now could help convict him in a July shooting in Kensington that injured three people. As social-media use grows, more scofflaws, like Woods, are posting incriminating information or photos online.

He rode into office on a motorcycle, with a suspended license and thousands in unpaid tickets, promising voters a sympathetic ear when they came before him in Philadelphia Traffic Court.

Traffic Court Judge Willie F. Singletary is gone but not forgotten, as Pennsylvania's Court of Judicial Discipline made clear Tuesday in an opinion excoriating Singletary for "bringing his judicial office into public disrepute.

BELLEFONTE, Pa. - One by one, the photos of eight boys flashed onto the courtroom viewing screen, blond and dark haired, dressed in T-shirts or long-sleeved flannels, alike only in their youth and their smiles. All but one shot was in color, the lone black-and-white the picture of a boy who spent so many years in foster care that he eventually aged out of the system, never having gotten a good color photo of himself. Jerry Sandusky, a former Pennsylvania State University football coach on trial here on charges of sexually abusing those children, didn't look at the faces on the screen.

LETTER-writer Mark Walker makes a snide comment regarding the lack of photos of Flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon on 9/11 by pointing out how clear the security-camera photos of a shoplifting incident at a local Sears are. Because the crashes in New York were well photographed, it seems odd to some that Flight 77's crash into the Pentagon was not equally well photographed. Consider that we have no photos of the Titanic actually hitting an iceberg, so why do we accept that as fact?

ITHINK THE Daily News crossed a line in printing photos of arrested "johns. " First, many of the johns in your paper had merely been arrested, not found guilty. Arrests in any sting are often problematic. Suppose some of these men are innocent? Where do they go to get their reputations back? Second, this is a summary offense, not a felony, so why the big deal? You often don't publish the photos of felons. Are you trying to raise circulation? Or to serve the paper's feminist leanings?

Conventional portrait photography is condescended to by the art world. So in the three-artist, portrait-photography exhibit at Abington Art Center, don't expect to see anything remotely conventional. The approach in this show, titled Mortal Terrain, is much more indirect and subtle. Only one of the artists, David Freese, shows work you might recognize as portraiture at all. And go figure how the large painted images by Tracey Howard ever could have started out as photographs. This is another example of a display format favored by neighborhood art centers with increasing regularity - several mini-solo exhibits held to spotlight promising and diverse regional talent.

Then they noticed a third person in the room - their wedding photographer, Jeremy Wolfe.
