WHEN IS IT appropriate to publish a photograph of five Philadelphia police officers standing under a sign that reads "Donut Making" (May 23)? I'm not certain the answer is always so simple. But ask yourself the same question barely two weeks after Officer Gary Skerski is killed in the line of duty? Precisely. I hope the newsroom had a hardy laugh at its seminal wit.

Motorists have complained to Upper Darby officials about traffic backups because the state Department of Transportation is changing timing devices as it replaces traffic lights in the township. Councilman Mario J. Civera Jr. asked the other council members at Wednesday's meeting to help prepare a list of trouble spots in their districts before a meeting is scheduled between PennDOT officials and the township to discuss synchronizing the new timing devices. Civera said after the meeting that some of the new devices weren't allowing pedestrians enough time to cross streets.

HARRISBURG - Democrats are decrying the timing of a donor's $25,000 check to the state Republican party on the eve of his son's confirmation as a Corbett administration cabinet secretary. Philanthropist Ronald Krancer said Wednesday that there was "absolutely no connection whatsoever" between his latest donation to the state GOP and the appointment and state Senate confirmation of his son, Michael Krancer of Bryn Mawr, as Gov. Corbett's environment secretary. The date of the donation was reported by the state Republican Committee as April 25. The next day, the Senate unanimously confirmed Michael Krancer to head the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)

I'M WRITING in response to your section "Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial - a 20th Anniversary Salute," which you published on Tuesday, Oct. 30. It would have been better served had you published it on the actual day of the anniversary, Oct. 26. Maybe then more people would have attended the ceremonies that took place at the memorial on Saturday, Oct. 27. Even though it poured for most of the morning and early afternoon, we did have...

The clever set (by Jorge Cousineau) is a gigantic old-fashioned composition book, with the play's title, The Four of Us, and the playwright's name, Itamar Moses, scrawled on its cover. Each page holds the setting for a scene; a stagehand comes out and turns the pages. This turns out to be more significant that we know: 1812 Production's East Coast premiere is not only funny and moving, it's surprising. Moses is a young playwright who already has established a reputation as a smarty-pants with Outrage and Bach at Leipzig.

Norman Braman wanted out of the National Football League for a lot of reasons. He was tired of all those plane rides between Miami and Philadelphia. He would rather spend his autumn Sundays at home with a wife who loves him rather than in a stadium with 65,000 people who despise him. He had grown weary of clanging heads with NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue and many of the league's owners. But most importantly, Braman wanted out because he found a guy who was crazy enough to give him $185 million to get out. The timing definitely was right.

A young catcher with the Milwaukee Braves, Joe Torre was in his first full season in the big leagues in 1961 when a veteran lefthander, now in the Hall of Fame, boiled down the art of pitching to him in one sentence. "I was able to catch a guy like Warren Spahn," the Los Angeles Dodgers' manager said yesterday. "And he taught me a long time ago that hitting is timing and the pitcher's job is to upset that timing. I think Cliff Lee is that type of guy. " The timing for Lee to take the mound couldn't be better for the Phillies, who must overcome Friday's potentially deflating 2-1 loss to the Dodgers if they are to take the lead in the National League Championship Series with a win tonight in Game 3 at Citizens Bank Park.

Perfect timing for Rodriguez A week ago, Edwin Rodriguez was the manager in triple-A New Orleans. Now he's the first Puerto Rican to manage in the majors, taking over on an interim basis in Florida when Fredi Gonzalez was fired. Barring an unexpected change in plans, Rodriguez will lead the Marlins in his homeland during a three-game series that starts Monday against the New York Mets in San Juan. Gonzalez joked that he expects about 150 long-lost relatives to contact him, looking for tickets.

Changes in the annual Mummers Parade were made to correct the timing and the flow, but there's a price to be paid. The comics, fancies, string bands and fancy brigades are the heart of this great tradition. But to save time, the comics no longer parade in the heart of South Broad, and now start at Broad and Washington. The fancies are starting north of Snyder. The string bands also will give up certain stops where they performed for the reasons of timing. The fancy brigades parade from Oregon to Washington, and then board buses to take them to the Convention Center for their noon performance.

A group of Italian American leaders met with members of the Inquirer staff yesterday to protest the publication of a front-page article about the Mafia on the same day as the Columbus Day parade. Robert A. Messa, state president of the Pennsylvania chapter of the Order Sons of Italy in America, said he and the others at the meeting had no quarrel with the contents of the Oct. 9 story. "We don't challenge the First Amendment. We honor it. We do not challenge the article," Messa said.

Send your lawn mower for a checkup. Remember the three-week wait for a tune-up last spring? Right now, we're sandwiched between tractor repairs and snowblowers, and unless we get some serious rain, you're probably not going to use the mower for the next few weeks. Get a tune-up, get the blades sharpened, and get some advice from the professionals on winterizing your particular make and model. Do your car and the pros a favor, and scrape the chunks of green stuff off the mower's underside first, and throw it all into the compost bin. Clean out the greenhouse.

While the literary world anticipates the publication of Jon Gruden's debut novel, Love in the Time of Carson, let us contemplate a deep and meaningful question about the Eagles: Just how good would Carson Wentz be if his wide receivers had opposable thumbs? In a broader sense - beyond, for instance, the Eagles' place in the NFC East standings this season - the Eagles' 29-14 victory Monday night over the Bears and Wentz's performance in it were beneficial to anyone who follows the NFL. They showed the limitations of judging a professional athlete (in football, anyway)

THE NORMAL timeline for a college basketball coach to turn fortunes when taking over a program is three years. That allows for weeding out some of the factors that precipitated a coaching change, growing what is good in the program and stockpiling talent to move forward. Brett Brown has now had three years at the helm of the 76ers and not unlike a college coach, he has pieces in place with which to build. Now is the time when fans can legitimately start to assess where the organization is heading and the brunt of those opinions will be directly tied to the job Brown does.

At precisely 11:12 p.m., on Nov. 6, 2012, America learned that Barack Obama had been reelected president. The call - made first by NBC - probably came as no surprise to either the Obama or Mitt Romney campaigns, both of which operated sophisticated war rooms tracking their needed voter turnout. So here's a question: Why should the public be out of that loop? If the campaigns know how they are doing in real time, why can't that information be made available to the public? "There is no secret sauce in this.

Time is ticking for the state Supreme Court to let a lower panel decide whether voters should be asked to decipher a misleading question on the Nov. 8 ballot that seeks to raise the retirement age for Pennsylvania judges. The Supreme Court deadlocked earlier this month when it tried to decide whether the wording is proper. Since it was unable to reach a decision on the ballot question, which seeks to amend the state Constitution, it should let the matter be decided by the Commonwealth Court.

THE FOLKS at Disney seem to be paying attention to those diversity memos.

Now word came yesterday from Deadline.com that the studio and director Ava DuVernay ( Selma ) have cast 13-year-old Storm Reid ( 12 Years A Slave )

Gary Johnson knows he's unknown. Here's what he thinks of known candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump: "If Mickey Mouse was on the ballot [with them], Mickey would be at 30 percent, because Mickey's a known commodity. " Suggestion's clear: If voters knew Libertarian Johnson, who is on the ballot for president, he'd be at 30 percent, eligible for the first debate Sept. 26 and in contention for the White House. As it stands, Johnson isn't eligible. The Commission on Presidential Debates says you need 15 percent in five big polls by right about now to take part.

This sure does seem to be the right year for Tribe of Fools to revive its 2013 Philly Fringe hit, Antihero . Between its subplots - a feminist doctoral student's dissertation examining what makes men behave the way they do, a police-involved shooting of a black man outside a comic-book store - and its plot, the company is either clairvoyant or we human beings are aggressively determined to repeat our mistakes. What made Antihero 's success was its blending of these themes with some wild fight direction (this production credits Michael Cosenza)
