In high school, I loved Shakespeare. Though some of my friends dreaded reading his masterworks because "the words were strange," I devoured his tragedies and comedies with a passion otherwise reserved for Hershey's Kisses. Shakespeare understood the human condition better than anyone who ever put pen to paper, and held up a mirror to his own society, as well as to future societies. He inhabited the hearts of young lovers, breathed the air of ancient Rome, wandered on the battlefields alongside doomed British royalty, and knew the turmoil of a Danish prince.

Five seasons after becoming a smiling, slugging ambassador for baseball, Sammy Sosa, his reputation and his historic accomplishments are coming under intense scrutiny after he was caught using a corked bat Tuesday night. The Chicago Cubs' icon did not deny using the bat in a game against the Florida Marlins at Wrigley Field. However, he claimed it was a bat he usually used for practice and mistakenly took into the game. Major League Baseball X-rayed 76 of Sosa's bats yesterday and none were found to have cork in them.

Ron Huber seems strangely dispirited for a man whose business has gotten a second lease on life. Until you realize how he got that opportunity. It meant filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September 2008 - something Huber contends he and brothers Bob, Don, and Glenn desperately tried to avoid. They are fiercely proud of the Huber family reputation as reliable purveyors of high-quality furniture in the Philadelphia region - a reputation forged by their grandfather in 1927 and obsessively protected by subsequent generations.

Andy Thies says there's a lot more to his basketball talent than just launching three-pointers. The Washington Township senior is known as one of South Jersey's better long-range shooters, but he's out to prove that he is an all-round player. As Thies discovered at camps last summer, reputations are hard to change. "For a long time I had the reputation of being somebody who only shot threes," said Thies, who signed in November with Siena after also visiting Monmouth and Fairfield.

Accused child molesters usually claim their young accusers are liars. Now, they have the legal right to attack the reputations of the young victims for honesty. Last week, the state Superior Court ruled that if lawyers can find witnesses to show that victims have reputations for being untruthful, they can't be barred from calling them. The court overturned the sexual assault conviction of Donald Butler, a pastor of the Apostolic Christian Academy, a school operated by the Apostolic Tabernacle Church in Pittsburgh, and granted him a new trial.

MONICA LEWINSKY called herself "patient zero," the first person to ever have her reputation "completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet. " It's unknown what patient number Tyler Clementi was when, 12 years later, he took his own life out of embarrassment after his freshman roommate at Rutgers University secretly videotaped him kissing another man and streamed it online. While Clementi's death hit home with Lewinsky, it hit her mother even more. "I wondered why," Lewinsky said.

About the only thing that might pull the troubled Internal Revenue Service back from the brink of disaster this year is a firm hand on the tiller. Yet the captain of the IRS ship, Commissioner Roscoe L. Egger Jr., has announced he's leaving. Unfortunately, he hasn't said when. Thus, as the April 15 tax-filing deadline approaches and as the IRS struggles to avoid a repeat of last year's chaos, Mr. Egger's announcement can only further confuse the agency's beleaguered management team.

The angry convicted murderer tried to kill the reputation of a woman he hacked to death two years ago. He didn't succeed. The judge didn't buy it. So, after Michael Mesquita, 45, cursed and shouted insults about the slain Dr. Yanick Denis-Gabbin, 33, he was quickly sentenced to a life prison term by Common Pleas Judge Lisa A. Richette yesterday. "She was a wonderful young lady," said Richette. "This was a terrible crime. " "She wasn't the person everybody says she was," said Mesquita, who accused the victim of being a prostitute.

When it comes to attracting upscale retail in the region, it was clear King of Prussia had an advantage over Center City. But as of Thursday, we can say - in the fight for luring top fashion brands here - the mall has been victorious. King of Prussia unveiled its gleaming, 155,000-square-foot expansion Thursday morning that looked more like New York's Fifth Avenue than the wing of an indoor suburban mall. With brands like Carolina Herrera, MCM, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Bottega Veneta, and Diane von Furstenberg - my New York Fashion Week designer favorite opening its first location in Pennsylvania here - it's a high-end shopper's dream.

Everything about the 76ers' blueprint for building a championship-caliber franchise is unique. As they're learning, some folks around the NBA aren't fans of the uniqueness. The team has been criticized for having just one "basketball person" in its front office in Brandon D. Williams, who played 18 games in the NBA. The Sixers prefer to keep to themselves instead of joining the old boys' network. And some argue that the Sixers are not establishing relationships with agents to become a major player in free agency in the future.

The stock is tanking, the CEO has resigned, and fines up to $18 billion could be slapped on Volkswagen for cheating on U.S. emissions tests of diesel-fueled cars. Add to that the possibility of criminal charges by the Department of Justice and class-action lawsuits from unhappy customers. The troubles at Volkswagen are far from over. How devastating the financial blow and how quickly Europe's biggest automaker recovers may depend on whether top executives were responsible vs. a rogue engineer, some experts say. Meanwhile, initial reaction from area Volkswagen diesel customers is split.

WILDWOOD - This is a Shore town with a reputation as an almost-anything-goes kind of place - famous for its racy T-shirts sold on the boardwalk and annual debauch known as Senior Week. It is also a place where town leaders are still determining the fine line between what is acceptable behavior and what isn't. You can certainly sport one of those off-color T-shirts on a boardwalk stroll. But just make sure your pants are pulled up or you'll risk a fine under a droopy drawers law. Coming for Senior Week?

INSTEAD OF FACING a retrial, reputed Philadelphia mob soldier Anthony Nicodemo pleaded guilty yesterday to third-degree murder and related offenses in the 2012 slaying of a South Philly man in broad daylight. In a packed Common Pleas courtroom, Nicodemo, 43, his hands cuffed in front, looked back and nodded to supporters. He was accused of being the getaway driver in the shooting death of Gino DiPietro, 50, who was gunned down in front of his house on Iseminger Street near Johnston in South Philadelphia, just before 3 p.m., Dec. 12, 2012.

FORMER Philly mob boss Joey Merlino will have time to perfect his "Gnocchi Mamma Rita" and "Veal South Philly" at his new Boca Raton, Fla., restaurant, Merlino's, and can enjoy his holidays in the Sunshine State. Although a federal judge in Philadelphia has denied Merlino's request to postpone his four-month prison sentence pending his appeal to the Third Circuit, the judge allowed Merlino to push back the day when he must report to prison. U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick, in an order signed Friday and made public yesterday, said Merlino won't have to start his prison sentence next week, as originally ordered, but must begin it Jan. 5. Surrick last month ruled that Merlino had violated the terms of his supervised release on a 2001 racketeering conviction by meeting with a member of the Philly crime family, John "Johnny Chang" Ciancaglini, in a Boca Raton cigar bar in June.

Much as the sour scent of mushroom compost pervades his old hometown of Kennett Square, the taint from a single conversation clings unpleasantly to Herb Pennock's reputation. Sixty-seven years after his telephone call to a fellow baseball executive, the onetime Phillies general manager and Murderers' Row Yankee is permanently marooned in history's limbo, trapped between what we know of him and what we think we know. The known is impressive. A Hall of Fame pitcher, Pennock retired in 1934 with 241 victories.
