Jaimee Drakewood hurried in from the rain, eager to get to her final appointment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Ever since her birth 23 years ago, a team of researchers has been tracking every aspect of her development - gauging her progress as an infant, measuring her IQ as a preschooler, even peering into her adolescent brain using an MRI machine. Now, after nearly a quarter century, the federally funded study was ending, and the question the researchers had been asking was answered.

IN CASE I haven't done so yet, I want to thank all the letter-writers who wrote such wonderful heart-warming things about my op-ed ("A meditation on life and death," Sept. 27). I didn't expect such an overpowering feeling of love from people I do not even know personally - it made me cry. But they were tears of gladness. Thank all of you for caring, you made my day.

Enough grieving. Our hearts go out to the victims of 9/11, but after today, let?s put away our sorrow. We?ve had a year of it. We?ve had our fill. Tears and looking back won?t help us look forward, can?t help us remain vigilant. Since 9/11/01, our war on terrorism has accomplished much. There is one less terrorist-coddling totalitarian regime in the world. We have proven to ourselves and to the rest of the world how resilient we are. We may not be the Greatest Generation ? but over the last year, we?ve been great enough.

WHY CAN'T the United States be more like Rwanda? Or Turkey? Or Bangladesh? Those are just three of the many, many countries that have broken through the women-as-president/prime-minister ceiling. Somehow, it's hard to imagine those countries, which also include England, Ireland, Germany, among others, torturing themselves with the kind of ponderous thumb-sucking and plain old heebie-jeebies this country exhibits over the idea of a woman being elected president. And even harder to imagine those countries exhibiting the same kind of gleefully infantile reaction to a woman candidate showing - gasp - a pure human emotion than the pile-on following a Hillary Clinton meeting in New Hampshire.

IDON'T KNOW who is responsible for that Sept. 11 editorial ("A Farewell to Tears"), but may I make a suggestion for that person - send it to one of the families of the victims of the World Trade Center, or the Pentagon or Flight 93. Because I think that they will agree that we should just stop crying over losing lives that were innocent. And you know what, America has moved on and we have become stronger and we have moved on and these cold calculating killers have not stopped us from moving on but . . . we can never stop crying, the sadness is too overwhelming.

The real shock for the accused killer of a pregnant woman came at the end of his preliminary hearing yesterday. "I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but your brother was shot to death the other day," lawyer Joel S. Moldovsky told his client, Shawn Sharp, 19, of Chew Avenue near Chelten. "Somebody has to tell you," said the attorney at the bar of Municipal Judge Lydia Y. Kirkland's courtroom. Sharp broke down in tears and began shaking. He had to be helped from the courtroom by sheriff's deputies.

As word of Barbaro's death spread yesterday, many in the region fell to tears or silence. In the end, their prayers had not been enough. Nor were the lighted candles, the countless get-well cards, the bags of feed, the carrots sent by children enamored of a powerful racehorse who fought first to win, then to survive. At the New Bolton Center for Large Animals in Kennett Square, tears streamed down the face of Patty Morgera, who was diagnosed with breast cancer days before Barbaro won the Kentucky Derby last May. "He's been my inspiration," the Downingtown woman said.

Tears welled up in John Franco's eyes. Pitching in the World Series was a lot easier than telling his 10-year-old son his daddy's baseball career might be over. "The saddest thing was when I came home last night," the New York Mets captain said yesterday during a news conference to discuss his elbow injury. Fighting off tears, the 41-year-old reliever bowed his head for nearly half a minute, wincing, trying to regain his composure before facing the cameras again. "My son," he continued, "said to me, 'Is it my fault because I played catch the day before?

In this age of programmed drums and keyboards, it's reassuring to hear dance music performed by a 10-piece live ensemble. Tears for Fears, the English group that took five years off between its last two albums, built a fine set of music Sunday night at Mann Music Center, drawing from its three albums and a large menu of styles - most noticeably jazz, with a generous side helping of gospel. Though the title track from the latest album, The Seeds of Love, continues in the dance-pop vein of the group's early hits ("Shout," "Everybody Wants to Rule the World")

Crying, long considered to be a removal of one's emotional clothes, has never been extended an absorbent welcome mat in the work place. The busy have no time for tears, said Byron. Shakespeare decried teardrops as "foolish rheum" and "eye-offending brine. " But there are indications that the taboo is being diluted. In the hit movie "Broadcast News," Holly Hunter portrays an ace television producer who is completely in control when deadlines are descending but liquefies when the pressure lifts.

Bob Ossler's brain was fried. His body, crisped. The unforgiving sun of a Louisiana summer had drained him. The police chaplain from Millville, Cumberland County, had prayed with hundreds of law enforcement officials since he arrived Sunday in Baton Rouge, where a gunman had killed three officers in an ambush. But the fatigue didn't stop Ossler. When a group of officers waved him over Wednesday — where they came from he does not know; "I see badges and I pray" — he put his hands on their shoulders and read from Psalm 23. Even the toughest officers began choking up, he said.

ONE NIGHT this past week, I was looking for something to watch on TV and stumbled upon the Olympic trials for Track and Field in Eugene, Ore. The women's 800-meter race was about halfway through, and the announcer was talking about Alysia Montano, a prerace favorite. All of a sudden, a collision left Montano falling to the track. By the time she was able to get up, she was weeping, because she knew her Olympic dream had ended. She nevertheless bravely finished the race, and the crowd roared their appreciation for her courage.

CAMERON STERLING stood next to his mother in Baton Rouge, La., as she spoke of how police had killed his father. The new man of the house, 15 years old, tried to stand strong, but he did what any child would do. He wept. He buried his face in his shirt, and then in someone's chest, and he sobbed: "I want my Daddy. " I had returned from vacation ready to write a column about 16-year-old Asir Brown , gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Grays Ferry on July Fourth weekend. But then I turned to one of the televisions in the newsroom and watched the emotional news conference outside Baton Rouge city hall, and there he was: A young man broken in ways that he's only just beginning to realize.

ST. LOUIS - Cameron Rupp stopped into Pete Mackanin's office near the end of last season for a final meeting before the team departed for the offseason. The two talked about Rupp's performance and what each hoped to see this season. The Phillies manager brought up Rupp's swing. Mackanin told the catcher to alter its path. A new swing would make him a better hitter, the manager hoped. Rupp took the advice home to Texas and worked through the winter with Chris Edelstein, the hitting instructor he has paired with since before high school.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Flyers have had many pleasant surprises during their surge toward the playoffs, but none has been bigger than the offense provided by Radko Gudas. After failing to score in his first 57 games this season, the burly defenseman went into Saturday with five goals in the last 10 games. "To tell you the truth, I was surprised when he couldn't buy a goal," winger Jake Voracek said before the Flyers faced Arizona on Saturday night. "When you see him in practice and see him in the games, he finds a way to put the puck through.

Buses carrying the Temple University women's gymnastics team and the Duquesne University men's basketball team were among more than 500 vehicles stranded Saturday for more than 24 hours in a blizzard and deep snows along a 40-mile stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Exhausted but safe, the gymnasts tweeted at 8:40 p.m. that they were finally moving to freedom. "Tears of joy," they tweeted with a video of a rousing celebration. The Duquesne team had rolled out about 10 minutes earlier.

ASIR BAGWELL, 8, blinked once, then twice, then so many times that I stopped listening to the adults in the room. The boy with the almond-shape eyes was trying with all his might to blink back tears as his grandmother talked about his father, gunned down when Asir was just 1. He pulled the sleeves of his green jersey over his hands, and when he couldn't hold them back anymore, he quietly and quickly soaked up the tears running down his face....

WHEN THE MASSACRE at Sandy Hook occurred three years ago, I went through my own personal sea change. I woke up on the morning of Dec. 14, 2012, having no specific opinion about guns and the Second Amendment and background checks and mental health and all of the layers of a problem that seemed so important to other people. To me, the right to bear arms was fundamental, but hardly the most fundamental of the individual rights incident to our status as citizens. I didn't have a problem with limitations on gun possession and couldn't understand the almost rabid reaction some Second Amendment purists had to any suggestion of gun control.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin tearfully apologized Monday for exchanging emails that included pictures of naked women and crude jokes that mocked minorities, gays, lesbians, and others. But the justice also said he had been the victim of a "media circus" - "dragged through the mud without the opportunity to address the misstatements and, in my mind, the total dishonesty in many of the news reports. " Appearing before the judicial ethics court that is weighing misconduct charges against him, Eakin said he regretted the messages, sent and received on a private account but made public because they were exchanged on government computer servers.
