The Eagles twice passed on Geno Smith, and it's reasonable to wonder whether their interest in the West Virginia quarterback was ever that significant. This topic was debated leading up to the draft, and intrigue was added when owner Jeffrey Lurie accompanied coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman on a personal scouting visit to West Virginia. "First off, it wasn't a smoke screen," Kelly said Tuesday morning on WIP-FM (94.1). "We were as thorough with Geno as anyone else with our evaluation.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: A dear friend of mine is pregnant, which is fantastic news. She also smokes. She has cut way down since she got pregnant, which is great. She is incredibly sensitive about it. When people ask her about smoking, it makes her extremely anxious and actually seems to make her want to smoke more. She knows she needs to quit. What can I do that will encourage her to stop smoking, but not put her on the defensive? Answer: She needs to stop smoking, yes. She also knows she needs to stop smoking, has cut back on her smoking, presumably has a doctor or midwife to guide her ongoing effort to stop smoking, and gets so rattled when people bring up her smoking that she possibly smokes more.

Q: Because I'm a smoker, my girlfriend will not let me do oral sex on her. I think she's being too cautious. She says I don't care about her health. We've been together about six months. I'm trying to stop smoking, but it's hard. Mia: E wwww , I'm with your girlfriend. I'm not a doctor, so I don't know if her private parts are at any kind of risk because of your puffing away on cigarettes, but who wants to deal with that? She ought to close the goodie jar until you get a nicotine patch and get serious about kicking the habit.

For more than a year, the system worked flawlessly. Containers of counterfeit cigarettes shipped from China to the ports of Newark, N.J., and New York City moved easily through customs and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security without inspection. From the docks, the cigarettes, falsely labeled as Marlboros and Marlboro Lights, made their way to a nondescript warehouse in South Jersey, where they were readied for the final leg of their trip, to California. The transport crew, responsible for smoothing the way through Homeland Security and making sure the cigarettes - nearly 2.3 million packs - got to California safely was none other than the FBI. The elaborate logistics operation was part of a sting to stem the flow of contraband cigarettes into the United States, according to court documents filed this week in U.S. District Court in Camden.

I THINK WE ARE heading in the right direction as far as not arresting people for small amounts of weed. But why does everything have to be about race? Yes, more white people smoke weed. But we tend to do it in the privacy of our own homes. Look around in the summer. In black neighborhoods you see blunt tobacco everywhere on the ground. In the parks, on people's own front steps, anywhere they feel like lighting up. They're doing it in full view of children (mostly their own) and even police.

MARIO BALOTELLI, the gifted-yet-troubled soccer star for AC Milan, has a penchant for doing stupid things. This weekend, he was cited for smoking a cigarette in the bathroom of an Italian train, which was carrying his AC Milan squad to face Fiorentina on Sunday. Club vice president Adriano Galliani said Balotelli will be fined. Balotelli was really ticked off when he heard that the train's ticket collector, who caught him smoking, told Galliani, "You need to pull his ears. He was smoking in the bathroom," Gazzetta dello Sport reported.

This story has been modified to correct an editing error Flower children of the '60s used to stress the importance of set and setting when consuming drugs. That knowledge apparently didn't make it down to three New Jersey stoners. On Tuesday night, Tpr. Erik Tapia was headed to work. He pulled into the parking lot of the State Police Barracks for Troop B in Totowa, which serves most of northeast New Jersey. As Tapia stepped out of his car he immediately was hit by the acrid scent of burning pot. The source of the smoke: a 2002 Oldsmobile parked a few cars away.

DID YOU hear the footsteps last week? Are they coming for you next? The gargantuan CVS drugstore chain has ordered its nearly 200,000 employees to disclose personal health information - weight, height, body fat, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar - or they will have a $600 penalty added to their annual health-insurance bill. CVS public-relations director Michael DeAngelis sees it differently, telling me that employees who take the survey will pay $600 less for health coverage.
