It has been a remarkably quiet season for the annual 3-year-old legions of trainer D. Wayne Lukas, but Lukas will have an opportunity to make a little noise this afternoon at Delaware Park when Leestown tops the field for the $150,000 Leonard Richards Stakes. Owned by the Overbrook Farm and ridden by Jose Velez Jr., Leestown won a minor stake earlier in the Delaware meeting and recently beat older opponents in an allowance test at Monmouth Park. The son of the great Seattle Slew has won his last three starts on the dirt, separated by a poor showing on the turf last month.

ON THE SURFACE, the comparison seems valid. Rick MacLeish was an anchor on the Flyers' two Stanley Cup title teams, often overlooked as other, more loquacious teammates shined and accepted the spotlight. Sort of like Simon Gagne. "No," said MacLeish. "I don't think so. He's a winger. I was a centerman. I'm in the play more than he is. " The more logical comparison becomes obvious, then. "It'd be more like [Mike] Richards, I think," MacLeish said. Yes, it would.

WHEN MIKE RICHARDS was named captain of the Flyers last September, I questioned the decision. Not because I don't like Richards and not because I don't think he's a leader. I just thought the Flyers were dropping too much too soon on the then-23-year-old face of the franchise, too much on someone who had just signed that huge, long contract, too much on an unmarried guy still getting used to the glare that comes with being an athletic superstar in a hockey-intense city. One summer later, Paul Holmgren's trade for 34-year-old Chris Pronger bears this out. Jay Bouwmeester was younger, faster, a seemingly perfect mesh for the Flyers' young core, at least at first glance.

Did Gerald Richards do society a favor by killing former Junior Black Mafia member Julius "JC" Pickard? That's what Richards's lawyer, John B. Elbert, contends. Elbert caused a stir yesterday at a hearing that ended with Municipal Court Judge Morton Krase's ordering Richards, 23, held for trial on murder and weapons charges stemming from the Dec. 6 slaying. Calling Pickard a "low-life, no-good scumbag who deserves to be dead," Elbert said his client "did society a favor.

Toby Ziegler, White House communications director on The West Wing , was one of the most earnest characters in television (especially for a political animal). With a solemn and subtle severity, Toby fought for decency in democracy. If Sam Seaborn was the looker, and Josh Lyman the charisma of the operation, Toby was the Bartlet administration's moral compass. "He was much smarter than I am, although I am much better looking," joked actor Richard Schiff, who brought Toby to life on screen.

Between Richard Basciano's shirking of responsibility for the deadly 2013 Center City building collapse and his long-standing ownership of said building lies a logical tension. It reaches its breaking point when this Ozymandias of pornography and blight is confronted with testimony that he was standing before his own dreary expanse of Market Street when his partly demolished building crushed a busy thrift store next door, killing six and injuring 13. While Basciano and his wife were indeed at the site, he claims in a deposition that he didn't see or hear the collapse.

WE START where we always have since the deadly Market Street building collapse that killed six people and injured 13 on June 5, 2013 - with the building's Teflon-coated owner, Richard Basciano. And if there is any justice or, perhaps more likely, karma in the world, we will end with Basciano walking down a road to a hell of his own making, paved with excuses. Since an unsupported four-story wall crumbled and crushed the adjacent Salvation Army thrift store at 21st and Market, many have wanted to hear from Basciano, the property owner who had the final say on contracts and decisions, but whose clout and cash kept him insulated from accountability.

She has enjoyed a terrific career since then: three Olympic appearances, four gold medals, six outdoor 400-meter championships, and six championships in the USA vs. the World relays at the carnival. She's had so much fun at Franklin Field, it's almost as if she's reluctant to announce her retirement.
