"The Wash" proves something that I for one am glad to know: that Asian- Americans can make movies as sentimental and innocuous as Caucasians. Indeed, it's easy to imagine a round-eye version of this movie on, say, Hallmark Hall of Fame, with Jean Stapleton and Hume Cronyn in the roles played here by Mako and Nobu McCarthy. Substitute pot roast for tempura and you're golden. Mako plays a Nobu Matsumoto, a retired gent in his 60s who brings new meaning to the word irascible.

Early one evening four years ago, Sen. Robert Byrd (D., W. Va.) and I were leaving his office and walking to the Hart Building. He had me escort him down a spiral staircase. As his hand slid along the handrail, Sen. Byrd expressed unease over the germs on such surfaces. For the rest of our walk, he discussed how seldom people wash their hands after using the bathroom. Some might dismiss Byrd's remarks as an old man's grumblings; however, in light of the forecast for a severe flu season, and the recent infectious hepatitis A breakout tied to a restaurant near Pittsburgh, Sen. Byrd seems absolutely sagacious.

Police retrieved the vials from the garbage, and after examining the bay shore and the water, they found more vials, bringing the total to 105, Sisk said.

Dear Polly: As a mother, I'm always looking for ideas to make life easier. Here are a few of the things I've found helpful. Baby socks and other small items that tend to get lost in the washing machine can be put into mesh laundry bags designed for that purpose. After washing them, you put the socks directly into the dresser drawer, which removes a lot of clutter. Stackable milk crates that can be purchased at discount stores make wonderful book and puzzle shelves. Decorated wicker laundry baskets make neat toy boxes for living rooms and family rooms.

It's football season, and we all know what that means - the clack of helmets in the crisp autumn air and the sound of the washing machine grinding away in the basement. Football produces more dirty laundry than politicians. My son, Teddy, 11, has game pants and practice pants, practice jerseys and game jerseys, game socks, practice socks and lucky socks. He has T-shirts for under his pads. He has T-shirts for over his pads. His team practices three times a week. Then they have games on the weekends.

Dear Polly: My daughter just gave me a beautiful bright tie-dyed skirt. I love it, but I'm afraid to wash it. Will the colors run? How should tie-dyed garments be cleaned? - Mary Dear Mary: The brilliant dyes used in today's tie-dyed garments hold up under washing fairly well. While new, the colors may bleed a bit, much as any intensely dyed T-shirt or blue jeans, but not in a way to affect the tie-dye pattern. Just wash the skirt alone or with dark-colored items such as jeans.

Cardinals Szoka, Bevilaqua and Law have all done an outstanding job of convincing Americans to despise their church's stance on child abuse even more. Cardinal Szoka said "pedophiles are not just a priestly problem" and that the cardinals are rejecting "the attempts to discredit the priesthood and the Catholic Church. " How can anybody argue that a church that has historically solved its pedophilia problem by transferring their monsters from parish to parish to terrorize children again and again should not be discredited?

ISSUE | TAXES Alter abatement tax Cheers to architecture columnist Inga Saffron for casting a light on what has become a tax boondoggle - the 10-year real estate tax abatement. ("With soda tax done, let's retool abatement," June 17). Philadelphia has one of the most liberal, untargeted abatements in the nation. As Saffron points out, historic and vintage buildings that define neighborhoods are destroyed to obtain the abatement, and the public school system is deprived of tens of millions of dollars in critical funding.

The work will take three to four weeks, during which time the observation deck will be closed.

This time, a different mix is involved: $125,000 in private funds, a $25,000 National Endowment of the Arts (NEA)

The first time, Rabbi Sarra Lev thought she'd be afraid. The young man who had asked her to teach him Hebrew before he died was laid out on a table in a funeral home, and she and six others were there to wash his body. "It helped a lot that it was somebody I loved," said Lev, of West Mount Airy. "I thought of it as just taking care of him. It was Randy lying there. " Lev was performing a sacred purification rite of Judaism and other faith traditions, the cleansing of a body shortly after death.

Question : I recently reserved a midsize rental car in Shannon, Ireland, for myself, my wife, and another couple through Hertz. At the airport, a Hertz representative upgraded us to an SUV, which sounded bigger, but was not. We were given the keys to an Opel Mokka, which was so small we could not fit our bags into it without putting two of them on our laps. I have driven stick-shift cars for 53 years, but when I started driving this car, I had trouble getting it into gear. I must say I was a bit frazzled, as the car was so small and there were four of us in it. I did get it going, but noticed a smell coming from the car right away, so I drove it around the airport block back to Hertz.

Water dribbled, a nozzle spun faster, and then, for a few minutes, the trickle became a jet, roaring as it blasted the tracks beneath a train. "It'd take your fingers off if you put them in there," said Dennis McAnulla, the assistant chief mechanical officer on Regional Rail maintenance for SEPTA. Oozing from a pipe a few feet farther along the train was a milky solution of sand, tiny metal beads, and oil that ran like melting ice cream over the rail. The train's three-man crew ran a few more checks, tested the brakes, and Wash 2 heaved forward from the Wayne Electric Car Shop off Germantown Avenue into a drizzly night to combat nature's bane of trains: Fallen leaves.

Linda Spinelli had a wedding to attend. So on a Monday in November, she took her son's 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee to the Spa Car Wash in Berwyn, where Spinelli was a regular customer. She sat in the lobby while a young worker climbed into the driver's seat. And as the Jeep exited the wash bay, Spinelli and other customers watched in horror. The Jeep suddenly lunged forward, she said, as the driver swerved to avoid pedestrians and slammed into large planters and four cars, including a Maserati.

A MEASLES outbreak among more than 100 children has turned political, and apparently so has hand-washing. Earlier this month, repeating the conservative trope of an over-regulated America, Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., told a bipartisan group in our nation's capital that "restaurants should be allowed to opt out of certain regulations, like making employees wash their hands after going to the toilet. " This misguided belief in the primacy of individual liberty over the larger benefits of society often transcends political parties.
