TATTLE can understand - even respect - Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes not wanting to pimp their new baby for media attention. But could it really be true, as so many tabs are reporting, that not even their friends have seen Suri? Do they not have any friends? Wasn't it Elaine on "Seinfeld" who intoned, "You've got to see the baby! When are you going to see the baby?" It's a rite of passage. Parents show off their babies like they're prize pumpkins. So what's going on?

Eric Frein may have been spotted in the woods by a police officer Monday afternoon. But the man dressed in green quickly disappeared out of sight into the dense forest near the Swiftwater, Pa., post office, police said. "A search of the area was conducted, but no one was located," State Trooper Tom Kelly said of the sighting. The Pocono Mountain School District was closed Tuesday as the search continued for Frein, the alleged killer of a trooper who has evaded capture for more than five weeks.

Nikolas Haass, a German M.D.-Ph.D and cancer researcher at Philadelphia's Wistar Institute, was horseback-riding on Saturday. So he came late to what birders had been chattering about on the Internet all afternoon: a brown-headed nuthatch had been identified in New Jersey for the first time. By 10 yesterday morning, Haass was at Cape and Lincoln Avenues, a beachside corner of dunes and pines where the tiny bird had been recorded - a rare spotting north of southern Delaware.

A sighting of the elusive cougar was reported yesterday at Cobbs Creek Golf Club near Overbrook Park. Three golfers teeing off at the 15th hole said they saw the animal frolicking in a sand trap about 2:30 p.m., club employee Michael Schonzeit said. Startled, the cougar reportedly ambled off into nearby woods. The golfers said they were about 200 yards from the cougar when they spotted it, Schonzeit said. They completed the 18-hole course, returned to the clubhouse and reported the sighting.

All day long, there was no sighting of the wayward whale. But no news didn't mean good news. Thirty-five hours after it was last seen, the whale was finally spotted yesterday afternoon on the Delaware River - four miles north of Monday's sighting, away from the ocean. Marine scientists who had flown into Philadelphia to track the rare right whale as it meandered along the Delaware had hoped that the whale had made it to the open sea by now. "It concerns us," said Ed Lyman, with the Center for Coastal Studies on Cape Cod. "The longer it stays, the greater the chance of colliding with a ship.

Anyone see a lion in Upper Darby? On Tuesday, police received two anonymous calls reporting a mountain lion or bobcat may have been sighted entering the woods near Township Line Road and State Road, police said. Animal Control was dispatched to the area but no supersized feline was found, Police Superintendent Michael J. Chitwood said. There were reports of an earlier dogfight with a "large burly looking dog" who ran off, said Chitwood. "That is what we believe it was. " That didn't stop the media circus, however.

He just might be smarter than the average game officer. At least he has been for the last two days. A meandering black bear that has been spotted five times in Lower Bucks County since Tuesday has so far managed to elude authorities. That has left Scott M. Thomas, a wildlife conservation officer with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, to bear the burden of being outsmarted by a bear. "He's out here somewhere," Thomas said yesterday afternoon from the driver's seat of his forest green Ford Bronco.

India Baker, who traveled to Philadelphia from Los Angeles with her friend Brittany Smith was so stoked by superstar DJ Khaled's turn on stage that she jumped over a barricade at Made in America, got up on a wooden box and danced her heart out until a security guard commanded her to get down and fireman-carried her back to earth. "I jumped up there so I could see over all these crazy people," Baker said, still wiggling in time to the beat. "I'm 5-foot-10. I got long legs.

DEAR ABBY: This is my second marriage. My first husband died when our daughter was 5 months old. I met my current husband, "Robert," when she was 6. We have a wonderful relationship as a couple and as a family. He's an amazing husband and father. We now have another child who is 7 months old. I fear I have become a problem for Robert. I'm so attached to him that I don't ever want him to leave. He works from home - even though he shouldn't - because I want him to be with me. I end up distracting him, and he misses deadlines.

We want the homeless now encamped nightly outside the Convention Center to sleep somewhere else. That was the response by some readers to an Inquirer story last week by my colleagues Aubrey Whelan and Mensah Dean. The story reported that with the construction of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and LOVE Park, more homeless people are now sleeping in the underpass outside the Convention Center . What was hidden in the shadows is now in plain sight. Fine. It's uncomfortable to walk past.

Average asking rents for Center City office space are projected to hit a record $28.80 per square foot during the three months ending June 30, according to real estate services firm CBRE. Much of the increase, up from $27.80 during the first three months of the year, comes from high rates being sought for remaining space in the FMC Tower, Ian Anderson, a CBRE research director in Philadelphia, said in a report Friday. But it still likely points to a lasting trend, he said. Rents for just the higher-end Class A office space in Center City, meanwhile, are projected to rise to $31.01 during the three months ending June 30, up from $29.86 in the previous period.

Wildlife officials say there have been reported bear sightings this week spanning more than 30 miles from Philadelphia to Delaware County and Delaware, but they are not sure if any of those sightings are the same bear spotted near Valley Green Inn last week.

The nation's largest labor strike is now a month old - 39,000 Verizon Communications Inc. workers off the job from Massachusetts to Virginia since April 13 - and no new talks are scheduled. The latest blowup involves four members and staffers of the Communications Workers of America who visited the Philippines, where Verizon operates call centers through a contractor, and who say workers there are paid a fraction of what their counterparts make here. Of the 39,000 on strike, about 13,000 are call-center workers, the union said.

It was almost a year ago and Temple had suffered a gut-wrenching 60-57 loss to Miami in an NIT semifinal and talk immediately centered on how the Owls would replace point guard Will Cummings, the all-American Athletic Conference guard who meant so much to the program's success. Temple also lost sniper Jesse Morgan, but Cummings was seen as almost irreplaceable, which is why the Owls were picked to finish sixth in the AAC preseason poll. Fast forward to Friday's 72-70 overtime defeat to Iowa in an opening NCAA game at the Barclays Center and the talk centered on replacing even a deeper group of seniors who were part of the rotation, unanimous first-team all-AAC guard Quenton DeCosey, stalwart defender and rebounder Jaylen Bond and instant offense guard Devin Coleman.
