Ever notice how popular you are when you drive a pickup? It's really remarkable. You get calls from obscure relatives who want to borrow your truck to haul a Louis-the-Something-or-Other armoire from Weirton, W. Va., to Backwater, N.J. The president of your high school class, whom you haven't seen since June 1967, suddenly appears at your door and wonders if he can use your pickup to get a load of mulch. Little League groundskeepers see you as a natural ally. You receive Telex messages from underdeveloped countries urgently requesting your pickup for the transport of political prisoners.

BALTIMORE Orioles slugger Chris Davis is currently sitting out a 25-game suspension for using Adderall, a banned substance. Usually a drug that helps people with attention deficit disorder improve their focus, it is categorized by Major League Baseball as a stimulant, thus the suspension. Maybe Davis can use what happened Monday on a Maryland highway as Exhibit A that, indeed, the drug has made him more alert and focused. Traveling on I-295 on his way to pick up friends at Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport, Davis saw a tire blow out on a big pickup truck, causing the vehicle to flip and pin a man underneath it. Davis, whose nickname just happens to be "Crash," was the first to arrive at the accident scene and began waving to passers-by to stop and help.

One morning in March, Sheryl Crow was tuned to a country radio station in Nashville while driving her kids to school. Listening to dudes singing about pickup trucks, moonshine, and girls in their Daisy Dukes, Crow took to Twitter to vent. "Will somebody please play a woman on the radio?" she pleaded. "Any woman. It doesn't have to be me but if I hear one more bro country song I'm gonna vomit!" Sorry, Sheryl. The Bro Country onslaught hasn't abated yet - though there are signs of a backlash, led by the teenage female duo Maddie & Tae. And this summer, Bro Country is coming to the Philadelphia area in a big, Bro-dacious way. Thursday night, Blake Shelton, Bro-friendly star of the TV music reality show The Voice , will play a free concert on the beach in Atlantic City for 60,000 toes-in-the-sand concertgoers.

Dania Sargenc often joked that the neon sign above Benash Liquor Store, with its bold yellow lettering, rusty red background, and arrow pointing toward the door, would one day be hers. The sign went up in 1948, when her uncle opened the store along Route 38 in Cherry Hill. Soon her father worked there, and even through ownership changes during the next 66 years, the sign remained. Then, last week, it came crashing down. What was one man's misfortune - accidentally toppling the sign with a red pickup truck - was Sargenc's chance to reclaim a part of her family's history.

This being spring, the season of renewal, the idea was to be a good citizen, clean the block, rent a truck, and haul the trash to a designated sanitation site. Or so Celia Pretter believed. "I thought I was doing a community service, doing this all nice and legal," the Mount Airy horticulturist said. She wanted to help, "given that the city is in crisis and has no money for schools. " But logic quickly took a backseat to red tape, time was wasted, officials were phoned, funds were squandered, and, truth be told, emotions flared and unkind words were uttered.

NORMA AND WILSON Sanchez met a half-century ago at a dance - and Wilson was on his way to another dance Saturday night when a pickup truck slammed into him on a Northeast Philadelphia street. Wilson Sanchez, 75, and his wife had planned to meet at the dance, a periodic event held at the Northeast Older Adult Center on Bustleton Avenue in Rhawnhurst. Norma went ahead to help set up the event. Her husband was to join her after the festivities got underway. But he never made it. Just before 9 p.m., as Wilson Sanchez crossed Bustleton after parking his car across the busy street from the Older Adult Center, a Ford F-250 slammed into the father of two as he walked across the southbound lanes midblock between Solly Avenue and Stanwood Street.
