By George Parry On Saturday afternoon, well into my second full day of we're-all-gonna-die television coverage of the approaching Hurricane Irene, I sat in my Barcalounger feverishly loading banana clips for my assault rifle. Rivulets of sweat coursed down my face as Terror Track Weather warned yet again that Philadelphia was squarely in the path of a killer storm. "Dear," my wife said tenderly, "what in the hell are you doing?" I explained that I was preparing to deal with the looters who were sure to pillage the neighborhood in the storm's aftermath.

Two children were hospitalized after a tree fell onto the car they were riding in Monday afternoon in Lower Merion Township, police said. The accident happened on River Road near Hollow Road and at 5 p.m. officials were working to clear the scene. The crash happened near the Schuylkill Expressway, and police momentarily closed exit No. 337 to Gladwyne while officials investigated. The closure, in addition to rush hour traffic, caused congestion in the westbound lanes stretching from Lower Merion toward City Avenue.

KABUL, Afghanistan - A suicide SUV bomber blasted a small clinic Saturday in eastern Afghanistan, causing the building to collapse as mostly women and children lined up for vaccinations, maternity care, and other services. At least 35 people were killed in one of the deadliest attacks against civilians this year. Guards saw a sport-utility vehicle charging toward the Akbarkhail Public Medical Center, which provides health care for the mountainous area in the Azra district of Logar province.

It was the perfect recipe for disaster: a slick road, a speeding SUV and a possibly drunk young woman behind the wheel, with two friends along for the ride. Those ingredients came together in Northeast Philadelphia early yesterday, and the result, police said, was the tragic deaths of two young women. About 2 a.m., the driver of the SUV apparently lost control of her vehicle and it struck a utility pole on Worthington Road near Byberry in Somerton. The impact was ferocious enough to shear off part of the rear passenger side of the vehicle and eject one of the passengers, identified by police as Caitlin Hennessy, 22. Hennessy, who had been sitting in the front-passenger seat, died of her injuries at the scene, as did the other passenger, Melissa Lees, 21, who had been sitting in the back of the SUV, police said.

The compassionate plea by Kathy Calvin, CEO of the United Nations Foundation, for increased funding to help women and others in the camps of quake-displaced Haitians ignores the United Nation's complicity in their plight ("Small measures can improve the lives of Haitian women," Sunday). There have been more than 10,000 armed U.N. security forces in Haiti since 2004, at a cost of $60 million a month. Yet there is no war in Haiti, no violent factions to restrain. Before the earthquake, U.N. cash had already failed to create infrastructure or sustainable job programs.

Police pulled a submerged SUV from the Schuylkill on Saturday afternoon, the second vehicle in a week recovered from the same stretch of river near Fairmount. About 1:40 p.m., a person walking along Kelly Drive north of Hunting Park Avenue alerted police to the Jeep Grand Cherokee that was underwater. Unsure if anyone was in the upside-down car, divers from the Philadelphia Police Department's marine unit searched the river and found the vehicle unoccupied, a marine-unit supervisor said.

Best place to catch a ride in Center City? How about grabbing a car off the pavement around City Hall, where all types of vehicles can be found parked these days? It's an old habit that the city supposedly broke back in the Rendell administration, when the apron was cleared of unsightly vehicles. Too bad it didn't last. In a supposedly pedestrian-friendly city, people shouldn't have to worry about being run down on the pavement near the city's premier public building. But today's scene under Billy Penn's statue represents a throwback, with commercial vehicles and official-looking black SUVs parked on the apron's north side and near the northeast corner.

The Honda Pilot was traveling north on the boulevard near C Street around 3:45 p.m. when it was sideswiped by the white box truck, which did not stop, said Officer Deborah Kiker of the Accident Investigation District. The Honda hit the pedestrian and then crashed into a light pole, but the driver was not hurt.
