Gary Abraham and Davy Harwi work on a garden they've grown on what was a vacant lot in the 1600 block of Wallace Street. If nothing else it, the hibiscus seem to be benefitting from the seemingly unrelenting sun. Bet there's more on the way.

Our demands for democratic practices in other lands will be no more effective than the guarantees of those practiced in our own country. . . .There are those who say to you, "We are rushing this issue of human rights. " I say we are 172 years late. There are those who say, "This issue of civil rights is an infringement on states' rights. " The time has arrived for the Democratic Party to get out of the shadow of states' rights and walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights.

Hovering somewhere between soft-core porn and chick lit, Sunshine is really just a string of mindless clich?s. This long one-act launches New City Stage's season of three plays by William Mastrosimone - the next is his famous play Extremities, with the same actress, Ginger Dayle, in the lead; if Sunshine is anything to judge by, there are grim times ahead. Sunshine is the nickname of a peep-show worker, the woman behind the glass who does whatever the men on the other side of the glass want her to do - except leave the booth and actually have sex with them.

The early word on "Sunshine Cleaning" is that it's a derivative indie/quirky in the "Little Miss Sunshine" mode. It's produced by the same people, it's got the "Sunshine" brand right there in the title, and it's got Alan Arkin as the kooky grandpa. But it's not fair to dismiss Sunshine as a retread of "Little Miss Sunshine. " Because it's also a retread of the my-sister's-a-nightmare-in-black-eyeliner movie (see "Rachel Getting Married"). So it's every overhyped indie you've seen, and maybe didn't like, and yet it's often quite likable.

What do you get when you mix one part pain with an equal part of sunshine? Maybe - just maybe - you get some sanity in Philadelphia's city budget-making process.

"He's my sunshine," are the heartfelt words Tyron's foster mother uses to describe his nature. "He's very loving and in tune with himself. "He can sit quietly, for long periods of time, drawing or reading," she continues, "or he'll be outside playing basketball, football, dodge ball, baseball and kickball. He plays hard and sleeps well. " Tyron, 10, has made a happy adjustment in this foster home after living in a number of other places. Despite neglect and deprivation in his background, he is progressing well emotionally with the help of a therapist.
