SO, IN THE latest development in the ongoing saga of "How the Big East Turns," what does TCU's not-so-unexpected defection to the Big 12 before it ever played a Big East game mean to the conference's restructuring plan? Well, in one scenario, maybe even the leading/most sensible scenario right now, it could be good news for Temple and Villanova. Bear in mind that the scenarios can fluctuate faster than an Eagles' fourth-quarter lead. Nevertheless, well-placed conference sources have confirmed yesterday's Newark (N.J.)

Perhaps Judge Douglas Ginsburg's pot-smoking indiscretion was as grave a disqualification for the Supreme Court as the bluenoses were forced, for consistency's sake, to pretend. Whatever one's judgment as to that, however, the more significant story is surely the spectral rise and fall, in the press, of a man nobody knew. From launch to consuming "firestorm," l'affaire Ginsburg took nine days: a record brevity. Thirty-odd years ago, editors and reporters had to face the disagreeable realization that the existing rules of reporting had helped Sen. Joe McCarthy accomplish his rancid and dangerous trivialization of serious issues.

The Cherry Hill school board has come up with yet another in a long line of redistricting proposals aimed at easing overcrowding in the district's elementary schools. This one is called Scenario 8, but board members hope it will be the last scenario they need. The plan requires moving 148 students, far fewer than either of the two previous proposals. District officials say it is also the best option. The school district must come up with a proposal to eliminate trailers it has parked at several overcrowded elementary schools.

Major League Baseball over the past several weeks has discussed a scenario in which Florida Marlins owner John Henry would buy the Anaheim Angels from Disney and Montreal Expos owner Jeffrey Loria would become owner of the Marlins, industry sources told the Miami Herald. Under one of numerous plans discussed, the Minnesota Twins and Montreal Expos would be eliminated, two sources told the newspaper. But every scenario under serious discussion has a baseball team in South Florida next season - and the most likely scenario would have the Marlins remaining in South Florida under the ownership of Henry.

We interrupt our non-stop election broadcasts to bring you news with serious implications for all forms of life on the planet, including Nader voters. NASA's Near-Earth Object Program Office (NEO) in California has detected an object "as big as an office building" on a trajectory that may cause it to crash into the Earth with devastating results. It might be a meteor. It might be a leftover Apollo booster. It might be an office-building-sized Hefty bag filled with decades' worth of shredded campaign promises.

Time twists like a Mobius strip in the droll and irresistible comedy Sliding Doors, which features an appealing Gwyneth Paltrow as Helen, a brittle British career gal who experiences two alternative futures. On the morning she is sacked from her job at a PR firm, Helen runs to catch the tube home so she can be consoled by her lover, the faithless Gerry (John Lynch). In scenario A, she misses the train pulling out of the station, gets mugged trying to hail a taxi and goes to the hospital, returning home to the apartment moments after Gerry's mistress, Lydia (Jeanne Tripplehorn)

The United States would advance with a victory over Algeria, which would give it five points. Because England plays Slovenia, one of those teams can't finish with five. The United States would advance with a draw against Algeria, which would give it three points, as long as England loses to Slovenia or England-Slovenia ends in a draw and the U.S. maintains a goal advantage over England. Currently, the U.S. has three goals and England has one. One scenario could lead to lots being drawn for who advances.

Caroline West is a senior vice president and chief compliance and risk officer with Shire, a global specialty pharmaceutical manufacturer with operations in Wayne. West is also chair of the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia, which as part of its mission, wants business and government leaders to peer into the future. To that end, it produced four scenarios for life in 2026 - a mere 15 years out - in Philadelphia and the country as a whole. As you might guess, not all of them are rosy.

Investigators have decided that last week's deaths of an estranged Coatesville couple were a double slaying, and Chester County District Attorney James P. MacElree 2d said yesterday that there were two suspects. The bodies of Lewis Dorsey, 23, and Linda Dunn, 34, were found by her sister on the morning of Oct. 30 in Dunn's home in the unit block of North Fourth Avenue. Both had been stabbed. Dorsey's address was unknown. An autopsy report shows that Dunn, the mother of two small children, died from stab wounds and strangulation, and Dorsey of stab wounds to the throat, authorities said.

Predicted changes from global warming - hotter summers, less snowy winters, flooding and erosion along the Jersey coast - are taken to new levels of the nitty-gritty in a comprehensive look at trends in the Northeastern United States released today after two years of study. Heat-stressed cows might produce 20 percent less milk. Major crops such as corn and blueberries could slack off. The makeup of forests in Pennsylvania and New Jersey would change, with cascading effects on birds and other species that live there.

THE FREE-AGENT season opens for business with the conclusion of the World Series but doesn't begin to pick up until the first 2 weeks of November. Teams have until 5 days after the conclusion of the World Series - which means Monday night - to make qualifying offers to their own free agents. Those players have another week to mull over accepting those offers; players almost never accept, since the free-agent market is very often far more fruitful. The Phillies will know a little bit more about their own free-agent pursuits - their needs and their budget - when another deadline arrives on Monday.

By now, you probably know the background here. The Eagles, who are 8-6 and lead the second-place Dallas Cowboys by one game in the NFC East standings, play the Chicago Bears on NBC's Sunday Night Football at 8:30. The Cowboys, who hold head-to-head and intradivisional tiebreakers over the Eagles, play the lowly Washington Redskins at 1. Then, on Dec. 29, the Eagles and Cowboys finish their regular seasons against each other in Arlington, Texas. So thanks to that interesting bit of scheduling and circumstance, the Eagles have a game Sunday that may mean a lot to them or that may end up not meaning very much at all. We pride ourselves on keeping our readers informed on all the potential ramifications of even the smallest development in the world of Philadelphia sports.

IN THE wake of Sunday's deadly Bronx train derailment, commuters might be wondering: Could it happen here? Well, in Philadelphia, it's "not a likely scenario," according to Jeff Knueppel, SEPTA's deputy general manager. "We've had a good track record with the problem of overspeeding, and in a short amount of time, we're looking to eliminate it completely from our system," said Knueppel. In 26 years on the job, he said, he has not encountered a derailment on par with the one that killed four people.

Hammonton and St. Joseph would like to keep alive a 51-year-old football rivalry. Timber Creek would like to raise its regional profile. The result could be a unique arrangement that would impact the division alignments and schedules for the West Jersey Football League and the Cape-Atlantic League, starting in the 2014 season. "We've got our fingers crossed," Hammonton athletic director Marni Parks said Wednesday of a proposal that would directly impact three of the best football programs in South Jersey.

SANFORD, Fla. - The trajectory of the bullet and gunpowder on Trayvon Martin's body support George Zimmerman's account that the teen was on top of him when the defendant shot and killed Martin, an expert on gunshot wounds testified Tuesday. Forensic pathologist Vincent DiMaio also used photographs of Zimmerman to point out where he appeared to have been struck during testimony that took up a significant portion of the day's hearing. Defense attorneys, who said they may wrap up their case Wednesday, were hoping DiMaio's testimony would help convince jurors of the truth of Zimmerman's claims that he shot Martin in self-defense.

WASHINGTON - Chase Utley believed it was prudent to inform the Phillies moments after pain shot through his right side during batting practice Tuesday. Rather than play through it, an idea a twenty-something Utley might have embraced, Utley was confident in his caution. His diagnosis Thursday of a "very mild" oblique strain reaffirmed that decision. Utley will miss at least two weeks and Phillies officials are optimistic that is all. Utley, while describing his injury as the "best-case scenario," is taking a more conservative view.

It's hard to say whether Warren Bloom would be a bad traffic judge. That's because the job, for which Bloom is seeking the Democratic nomination on Tuesday, has virtually no prerequisites beyond possessing a pulse, living in Philadelphia, and winning a pale imitation of an election. It's somewhat easier to determine whether Bloom has, at least at times, been a bad taxpayer, a bad uncle, and a very bad rapper. That's because he owes more than $20,000 in taxes (which might be helped by a traffic judge's $91,000 salary)

The NHL's 48-game schedule, caused by Lockout III, will dramatically change the dynamics of the 2013 season. For proof, take a look at last year's 82-game season and what would have happened if only the last 48 games were played - and the first 34 didn't count. Boston was the Eastern Conference's best team after 34 games last season, going 24-9-1. But the Bruins limped home in the final 48 (25-20-3) and would not have even qualified for the playoffs if only those games counted.
