Let's think about eggs. Really think about them. What they were meant for. What they were not meant for. Eggs. They sustain life, don't they? Life emerges from them. And they can keep you alive - happy, even - in any number of ways. Omelets, say. Egg salad. Quiche! Eggs Benedict! But mankind, never satisfied, persists in carrying things too far. Somebody, for example, actually came up with this riddle of applied engineering. Call it, for reasons that will become clear, the Humpty Dumpty conundrum: What's the safest (for the egg, that is)

Opera companies can inspire the hometown loyalty of a sports team, the sort that says, "It may not be the best, but it's ours. " And when a smallish company like Opera Delaware mounts a biggish opera like Puccini's Turandot, the kind of raucous, whooping ovation it received at Saturday's opening is justified even if the production is just an approximation of the piece. The opera is full of "greatest hits" arias one applauds almost by reflex, but it also presents such casting challenges - the biggest one met by the exciting young dramatic soprano Othalie Graham - that it's not coming back any time soon outside any of the major operatic capitals.

In taking a fresh look at the allegations of womanizing and sexual misconduct by former Warminster Police Chief Elmer P. Clawges, Bucks County District Attorney Alan M. Rubenstein has added fuel to the notion that this case is too hot to handle. A few weeks back, the D.A. said the former police chief's alleged conduct in one instance was "not only criminal, it is reprehensible and it's wrong. " The case involved a former township police clerk, Julie Beekman, who said the chief had sex with her regularly, beginning when she was 16. While he said he wanted to prosecute, Mr. Rubenstein said he was "absolutely barred by the statute of limitations.

At 81, Margaret "Peg" Pinkerton would not be blamed if she slacked off a bit. But when that is suggested, she quickly responds that keeping busy keeps her healthy. So even though she is recovering from torn cartilage in her knee, she volunteers at Riddle Memorial Hospital in Media at least five days a week, eight hours a day. She has been at Riddle since 1965 and last October she reached an astonishing 50,000 hours as a volunteer. Pinkerton, of Middletown Township, Delaware County, was honored for her accomplishment at an April luncheon at which she received letters of recognition from President Bush, Gov. Ridge and local politicians.

Raising his shackled arms to his face to wipe away tears, a shaken Philadelphia man pleaded guilty yesterday to shooting Cherry Hill Police Officer Thomas Riddle with his own gun on March 2. "I went for his gun and got it out and told him not to move. He persisted in moving and the gun went off," Steven Anthony Press, 21, of the 1800 block of Wilder Street, Philadelphia, told Superior Court Judge A. Donald Bigley while pleading guilty to attempted murder. Dressed in the Camden County Jail's standard-issue orange jump suit, Press talked in a trembling voice as he described how Riddle was shot shortly after midnight on March 2. Riddle, 33, had gone to the Provincial Apartments in Cherry Hill to stop an attempted car theft by Press and three other Philadelphians, including Press' brother Darren, 22, of the same address, according to police.

Most weekends, Skip Riddle is likely to be found camped out in a field, polishing his musket and swapping trivia about the Revolutionary War. Although Riddle, 36, is too young to have helped found the nation, he and about 160 other mock soldiers will replay a portion of the 1777 Battle of Brandywine on Saturday and next Sunday. The re-enactment of a typical skirmish of the battle will occur about 1 p.m. both days. In addition, demonstrations will take place from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, said Anne Woodward, site administrator of the Brandywine Battlefield Park in Chadds Ford.

Playing at Ritz at the Bourse. Guy Ritchie's Revolver premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival two years ago September. That's 26 months on a shelf somewhere, depriving moviegoers the thrill of jaw-droppingly awful Ray Liotta line readings, of bloody shoot-outs, bags of money, cutaways to frosty babes sucking on lollipops, and even a bit of violent anime.

Riddle Hospital, part of Main Line Health, said it will receive a $16 million gift, the largest since the Delaware County hospital opened in 1963 and the largest gift in the Main Line system in the last 10 years. The money is from a trust created by John Bancker Gribbel who died in 1947 after being a long-time patient of Charles H. Schoff, who founded Riddle's predecessor, Media Hospital, in 1909, Main Line said Wednesday. The gift will help the tax-exempt Main Line and Riddle implement a new strategic plan for 2016 to 2020, the system said.

For the parents of Jameson Finley, there was one thing more alarming than when he coughed up branch-shaped chunks of a substance with the consistency of string cheese. The thought of what would happen if he did not cough them up. The boy, then 5, suffered from a condition called plastic bronchitis, which can lead to asphyxiation, pneumonia, and death. It can strike children who have undergone certain complex heart surgeries, as Jameson had, and it occurs on rare occasions in noncardiac patients - some of whom go years before getting the correct diagnosis.

NEW YORK - Of all the Philadelphia-New York rivalries, this one between the Flyers and Rangers is the most colorful, the most contentious, and the one that appears headed for another crusty playoff chapter. "I would take that if somebody said that today, because then you know you're in the playoffs," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said before the two rivals continued jockeying for playoff position Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. "If somebody said,'You're going to play the Rangers,' I'd say that's great.

LIKE MANY Philadelphians, Roxborough resident Anthony Hollis thinks that politicians should have to resign from their posts before running for new ones. "They should resign so they can dedicate themselves to more effectively do one job," Hollis said. So Hollis presumably would object to a proposed ballot question from Councilman David Oh that, if voters approve, would end the city's "resign-to-run" rule and allow officials to keep their jobs while running for new offices. But after reading the 48-word question, which voters may see in the May primary, Hollis believed the proposed change actually would create a resign-to-run policy and said he would vote, "Yes.

IN THE DAYS and weeks ahead, homicide detectives will try to piece together Daquan Crump's final days - who he called, who he texted, who he met up with. They might get someone to identify the sick bastard or bastards who took Crump's life early yesterday. Might even catch 'em, too. But it's unlikely that anyone will ever be able justify the appallingly violent way that the 19-year-old's life ended: with 10 to 12 bullets to the head and face, his body abandoned amid dirt and debris at a massive construction site, alone except for a backpack containing his Wendy's uniform.

LAS VEGAS - LeBron James won a championship. Deron Williams became nearly $100 million richer. Kobe Bryant got Steve Nash as his backcourt partner. See, it hasn't been all bad news for the U.S. men's basketball players. But overall it's been a rough year so far, and the impact will be obvious Friday when the Americans - including Andre Iguodala of the 76ers - open training camp with about three weeks until their Olympic opener. The Americans planned to arrive with their 12-man squad already selected, keeping the focus entirely on the road to London.

The Toronto Blue Jays have a strong lineup but a rotation devastated by injuries. Desperate for a healthy arm no matter how aged, the Jays signed 49-year-old Jamie Moyer on Tuesday. Moyer, who had been pitching for triple-A Norfolk in the Orioles' chain until his release last week, will be assigned to triple-A Las Vegas. The Jays have placed three starters on the disabled list in the last two weeks: Kyle Drabek with season-ending Tommy John surgery; Drew Hutchison, out at least a few weeks with a sore elbow; and Brandon Morrow, out with a strained oblique.
