Thanks to the many miracles of our modern society, today's super-rockers are kicking out the jams longer and harder than ever. (Think about it: For the better part of the '70s, the smart money would have been on Keith Richard's dad snorting his son's ashes, not vice versa.) As the 59-year-old James Osterberg - a.k.a. Iggy Pop - proved Wednesday night at the Electric Factory, men well-acquainted with the business end of a sigmoidoscope are still capable of rocking as hard and ferociously as a teenager.

Dick Polman's Nov. 2 Inquirer Magazine masterpiece on alleged Nazi Karl Linnas deserves a Pulitzer Prize for exposing the seldom-told dark side of Nazi hunting by the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations (OSI). He cites OSI allies' position on "emigre contention that OSI has become a stooge of the Communists. " I opine that OSI personnel are not stooges. Morally bankrupt, yes, but not stooges. They know full well they're using KGB disinformation, hearsay, their own lies and the narrowest interpretation of law to create Nazi war criminals and destroy innocent lives.

My Morning Jacket My Morning Jacket's Jim James stayed busy after touring ended for Evil Urges , the band's excellent 2008 album. Calling himself Yim Yames, he released an EP of George Harrison tunes; sang on albums from Laura Veirs, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and others; released the album Monsters of Folk with Conor Oberst, M. Ward, and Mike Mogis (and thereby ended up on the new Roots album); and appeared solo at this summer's Newport Folk Festival. But now his attention is back on his main gig with MMJ: They're working on an album due next year.

The guy who draws Olive Oyl just lost his job. Why? Because his employers didn't like the way Popeye's ladyfriend was talking. Instead of the time-honored "Help, Popeye, help!," Ms. Oyl was declaiming that she will do what she wants with her life, no matter what some man says. No doubt this bodes ill for Bluto, a cerfified swine if ever there was one. In this "year of the woman" that everybody keeps declaring, it will bode ill for many another villain, especially if Ms. Oyl takes her beliefs to the polls.

Iggy Pop singlehandedly invented the notion of the lead singer as human cannonball, rolling shirtless in broken glass, hurtling himself into hostile crowds, and leaving behind the unsettling impression that there was nothing he would not snort, shoot up or attempt to fornicate with. He has also unleashed some of the most primal, brick-in-the-face rock and roll ever committed to tape. Tuesday night at the Theatre of Living Arts, the 54-year-old Pop made it abundantly clear to the adoring, sold-out house that he remains a streetwalking cheetah with a heart full of napalm.

In the time before Nirvana (kind of like the B.C. of the alt-rock world), Mudhoney made grunge - and didn't know it - out of their Pacific Northwest garage forefathers and Stooges and Blue Cheer records. Then Nirvana happened, and now we have Creed. But we also have something of a "rock revival" (whatever that means), and Mudhoney's latest record, "Since We've Become Translucent," back on their old label Sub Pop, rightly deserves a place in that pretty little mess. Opening for the band tonight at the North Star Bar are locals Mondo Topless, working the garage side, and Jukebox Zeros, working the Stooges part of the equation (10 p.m., 27th and Poplar streets, 215-684-0808, $14, www.northstarbar.

THE Daily News Eagle Fan Panel has a lot to say after the Birds beat the Texans on Thursday night: Vick continued to show excellent leadership ability with a come-from-behind win. But our defense is going to continue to struggle until we get more quality players on that side of the ball. You can't expect McDermott to perform the same regular season miracles that Jim Johnson did. But on a more positive note, I love the 3 Stooges and was happy to hear them working the game last night for the NFL Network.

To describe "Just Go With It" as another failed romantic comedy would imply that at one time it wanted to succeed as romantic comedy. I doubt that's true. Star Adam Sandler and collaborator/director Denis Dugan don't really care if they conform to rom-com standards and practices. To Sandler Inc., "Just Go With It" is a forum for his freewheeling lowbrow brand (this movie makes "Little Fockers" look erudite), one that's increasingly unhinged from form and unregulated by taste. It's either proof of civilization's decline or underappreciated Dadaist genius.

Public libraries never more vital Although e-reader lending is now routine, it is the building-community role that has emerged as the hallmark of the 21st-century library. ("Digital age has made libraries even more vital," Jan. 27) Public libraries are the new town halls and community centers. They welcome children during after-school hours, and provide homework spaces that shout "search and collaborate. " Their carpeted floors absorb the happy sounds of music-making and story times as toddlers explore the world through lyrical prose and song.

The Farrelly Brothers have said they wanted the title characters in their updated The Three Stooges to be hyper-accurate reproductions of the slapstick performers. Right down to the accents. And since Stooge Larry Fine was a Philadelphia guy (the Howards hail from Brooklyn), the Farrellys wanted an actor who could mimic his accent - I guess the hair was the easy part. They cast Sean Hayes, best known for his role on the TV sitcom Will & Grace, and certainly nobody's first choice to play Larry, but give Hayes his due - maybe the best thing about The Three Stooges is his eerily pitched re-creation of Fine's unique voice.

ABOUT 90 YEARS ago, a young Philadelphia fighter billing himself as Kid Roth won his first and only lightweight bout. His real name was Larry Feinberg, and he quit boxing because his parents didn't like the rough stuff. Ironic, because when he changed his name to Larry Fine and ended up in a vaudeville act that would become known as the Three Stooges, he went on to lose his next 190 fights, all to Moe Howard. Larry takes his lumps again in Friday's Hollywood big-screen revival "The Three Stooges," directed by the Farrelly Brothers, Stooge fanatics who wanted an actor (Sean Hayes)

If there is one place where the nyuk-nyuks and doinks of the Three Stooges live on for true fans, it's at the Stoogeum in suburban Philadelphia. So it's with no small interest that its curator, Gary Lassin, awaits Friday's release of the new Three Stooges movie by the Farrelly Brothers, Lassin hopes for the best, but fears the movie may not be able to capture a Zeitgeist rooted in the Depression and World War II. "I just hope the movie is not horrible," Lassin says.

MOSCOW - Sharp-tongued and defiant, Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin denounced those protesting vote fraud as stooges of the West and insisted that Russia's national election was valid. His opponents were undeterred. In a 41/2-hour marathon call-in show on national TV, Putin aimed to erect a bulwark against a rising wave of discontent. But his disdainful tone appeared likely to only fuel more protests, after a fraud-tainted Dec. 4 parliamentary vote sparked the largest public anger Russia has seen in a generation.

Nnamdi Asomugha never expected this. Never expected to be 3-6. Never expected to be used in the curious way he has been used by Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo this season. He's one of the best shutdown corners in the business. Spent the better part of seven seasons with the Raiders being assigned to the other team's best receiver and essentially putting him in witness protection. That's what Castillo should be doing with him, but he's not. That's what Castillo should have done with him yesterday, but he didn't.

Derrick Beckles was not particularly happy working in the television industry. "I would just come home and want to brush my teeth with a shotgun," Beckles said. To abate thoughts of dental hygiene-by-firearm, Beckles would transform himself into Pinky Carnage, the mad, splicing scientist behind "TV Carnage," a series of DVD mix-tapes culling the most wacked-out clips from all corners of the television landscape. " 'TV Carnage' is like a head enema," Beckles said. Tonight he's bringing the live iteration of "TV Carnage" to International House.

SAN FRANCISCO - The world is full of heroes and villains. Barry Bonds somehow qualifies as both. Nationally, Bonds was long ago dismissed as a Giant caricature, a PED-popping phony who refuses to abandon his ridiculous charade and cop to what everyone already knows. Locally, the opinion is different. The Giants could have picked anyone to throw out the first pitch of the first National League Championship Series game held here since 2002. Willie Mays. Will Clark. The guy whose name was lent to the cove with all the kayaks.
