WASHINGTON is now in the middle of one of its favorite games: Should It Show and Tell? The playing pieces: a new round of pictures and videos of atrocities committed by U.S. troops on Iraqi prisoners. Should the images be released to the public or kept hidden for fear of further inciting Arab anger? President Bush may make the final determination. Much of this game is based on make-believe. In this case, several Pentagon officials and their supporters on Capitol Hill are make-believing that these pictures - which have been passed along among troops and even used as screensavers on military computers - will somehow not end up in the hands of the media or some Web site somewhere.

If you're hung up about what to hang on your walls, put down your hammer and nails and flip through a new book. Decorating With Style (Clarkson Potter, $35) is by Stephanie Hoppen, a London print and fine-art dealer whose shop is famous as a masterpiece of display. The book covers a number of subjects - curtains, tabletops, fireplaces - but its strength is picture-hanging. Hoppen is enormously clever at taking one unassuming image - a vintage print of a sofa, for instance - and hanging it with images of chairs and interiors.

DogMeetsWorld.org has little to do with dogs and everything to do with making children happy around the world - through photography. What's not: The cost. Participants, who are provided with the stuffed dog, make a $30 donation and need to buy a portable printer. But it's free to go to the website and view the photos. - Jen Leo, Los Angeles Times

Jayson Werth has an explanation for his improved performance of late: more photographs. "When I'm seeing the ball well, it's almost like taking 1,000 still pictures of the ball from the time it is pitched to the time it gets to the plate," he said. "When I'm not seeing the ball well, it's like two pictures. " After a slump in which he admitted to feeling "totally lost," the Phillies rightfielder began last night batting .303 (10 for 33) in the first nine games of a 10-game road trip.

Try St. Joseph's University Gallery on the Lower Merion side of City Line Avenue near the new pedestrian bridge overpass. Blaise Tobia's photographs star there in his first solo show in our region. These pictures are mostly about our basic experiences of city life with its rational enough buildings and artifacts and its unreasonable emotions. Pictures based on emotionally loaded memories often have an oddly insistent intimacy that underscores their natural poignance. Tobia, who is in his sixth year teaching photography at Drexel University, travels back and forth between his Old City residence and his home in Brooklyn.

It is, at bottom, an argument about pictures and words. The pictures are of captured al-Qaeda terrorists, hooded, shackled and kneeling. The words are unlawful combatants, the U.S. government's preferred term for the men it has interned on a military base in Cuba. Together, words and pictures have inflamed an international debate. Human-rights groups have accused the United States of treating the detainees inhumanely. Even America's staunchest ally, Britain, has registered rumblings of concern.

Lester Lee Weiss, a solid landmark in Lawndale's business community, is going to retire. But don't let anybody tell you he's quitting work. After 42 years of selling clothes out of Weiss' Kiddie Shop, 6427 Rising Sun Ave., he has no intention of just handing over the keys and walking out. "The young fellow who's buying the store hasn't been in the business," Weiss said. "I've agreed to stick around and lend a hand, to break him in. " The details are still a little loose, but Weiss, 70, expects to begin work as a "consultant" to his replacement, a 26-year-old entrepreneur, late this month or early in March.

Sexually inappropriate pictures circulated by students at Neshaminy High School prompted a police investigation Friday, authorities said. School officials and law enforcement were still determining whether any students were depicted in the pictures and how widely the pictures were shared. "It's a large number of students," district spokesman Chris Stanley said Friday night. "It's not just one or two. " He estimated that as many as 20 students among the school's 2,540 could have received the pictures, but said it was possible the investigation could reveal the number was more or less.

Most people tend to go through art exhibitions at a hit-and-run pace, stopping at a work long enough to "get" it, or not, then moving quickly on to the next. The work on display at the Brandywine Museum of Art's current exhibition is intended for a different set of viewers. They scrutinize it and return to look again. They talk about it. They ask questions and laugh and lose interest. Then they come back and look again. Theirs may not be the most educated eyes. Indeed, they may not yet have finished kindergarten.

DEAR ABBY: I am a large, overweight woman. I have been in the process of losing weight for more than five years. I got married three years ago to an amazing guy. He's the sweetest man I have ever met. Something he said recently really bothers me. He said he thinks I'm fat. While I know I'm fat - and admit it out loud - I never thought it was appropriate for your significant other to say it to you. I am at a loss as to what to do because he is...

On a bright July day, the vista evokes gasps from visitors to this property in Lumberville, Bucks County. To the southeast is the Delaware River, which on this particular morning is blue and clear. From the driveway, on 10-foot-high stilts surrounded by trees, you see a dwelling that looks like a giraffe standing tall on thin legs. Modest in appearance, the structure is made of stucco and cedar, and seems to blend in with its woody surroundings. It belongs to Monika Hemmers and Stephen Heimann of Chestnut Hill, who built the house to replace a cottage they bought in 2009 that was flooded by successive storms that saw the Delaware overran its banks.

Philly dwellers, like people anywhere, quickly grow accustomed to the rhythms of everyday life. It's easy to forget you are living in the fifth most populous metropolis in the United States, a bustling, unique urban environment that dates back hundreds of years. The best way to reacquaint yourself with the grandeur of the city is to look down on it. But most of us don't live or work in high-rises. We rarely, if ever, get to see the city from one of the post-1985 skyscrapers that were finally allowed to rise above William Penn's hat atop City Hall.

MAYOR KENNEY'S proposed tax on sugary drinks has gotten Bernie Sanders, Michael Bloomberg and Warren Buffett to be involved in the debate. Sanders correctly saw the tax as regressive and a burden on poorer Philadelphians. He was chastised by all sorts of big, nanny-state liberals as not understanding that this tax was not just about funding universal prekindergarten. Stephen Stromberg, writing in the Washington Post, said of Sanders' view, "The point of soda taxes is to guide people away from over-consuming a product that no one needs to live and that should be treated as an indulgence.

Question: My mother is 85 - she's been married to my father for 54 years. In the last 10 years, she has taken us to task (well, literal screaming) when we show her photos taken during family gatherings. She says we are trying to make her look bad. I think she is beautiful, but I always acquiesce and destroy the photographs when she asks me to. Is there anything I can say to her to try to circumvent the horrible mass-media stereotype of "older" being "ugly"? This, still at age 85, seems to be how she judges herself, and it makes me cry. It's ludicrous at every age. Answer: You're certainly free to share your own view - "Mom, you're beautiful to me; these pictures now are happy memories later" - but even if your mom were in her 50s, it wouldn't be your place to rid her of beliefs you happen to find "ludicrous.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Drawing the wrong conclusion Signe Wilkinson's cartoon showing Hillary Clinton in Congress saying she knows how to "reach across the aisle and get things done" with a GOP elephant, and Sen. Bernie Sanders on a planetoid asking, "What aisle?" (March 11) misrepresents the Democratic presidential candidates' political experience. Clinton's stint in the Senate was eight years - not even two terms. Sanders is in his 10th year in the Senate after serving 16 years in the House as Vermont's only representative.

Philadelphia City Council's committees on children and youth, and education, held their first state-of-the-schools hearing Thursday and got a grim picture of an underfunded and ill-supported district. Councilwoman Helen Gym said she wanted the hearing, along with three March community meetings, to provide priorities leading to budget season. "We understand the School District has endured years and years of budget cuts," Gym said. "We're trying to understand the district's priorities, and how do they match up with student needs?"

NASHVILLE - Claude Giroux spent three fun-filled days in Nashville for the all-star festivities, but now comes the hard part: trying to steer the Flyers to an Eastern Conference playoff berth in the final 35 games. The Flyers, who will begin the unofficial second half of the season Tuesday against visiting Montreal, are five points out of a wild-card spot and have to climb over five teams. They have games in hand on all five teams. "We have to look at the small picture," Giroux said after his Metropolitan Division team fell to the Atlantic Division, 4-3, in the opener of the three-on-three all-star tournament at Bridgestone Arena.

A MAIN LINE MAN man accused of sexually abusing a family member has been charged with assault for striking the hand of a journalist, swatting at his camera, and knocking it to the ground and damaging it. In addition to simple assault, Charles Robinson, 60, of Gable Road in Paoli, was charged this week with harassment and criminal mischief, according to public records. Last Friday, as Robinson left the Newtown Square court after waiving a preliminary hearing in the sexual-assault case, he shoved several members of the media and struck the hand of Richard Ilgenfritz, a reporter with Main Line Media News, knocking his Nikon camera out of his hand.
