For art museums, this season is all about the Big Picture, in more ways than one. The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts is providing a visual panorama of how Americans responded to one of the most catastrophic events of the 20th century. And at its heart is an epic, CinemaScope-scale painting of a grotesque event, Gassed by John Singer Sargent, on loan from the Imperial War Museum in London. The great 20th-century Mexican muralists also produced some big pictures, often on big subjects, such as The Epic of American Civilization , by José Clemente Orozco.

Toby Ziegler, White House communications director on The West Wing , was one of the most earnest characters in television (especially for a political animal). With a solemn and subtle severity, Toby fought for decency in democracy. If Sam Seaborn was the looker, and Josh Lyman the charisma of the operation, Toby was the Bartlet administration's moral compass. "He was much smarter than I am, although I am much better looking," joked actor Richard Schiff, who brought Toby to life on screen.

THE WIENER and still champion . . . Former three-time Wing Bowl champion Joey "Jaws" Chestnut beat his own record in regaining Nathan's Mustard Yellow International Belt Monday, downing 70 hot dogs and buns - and more amazingly, keeping them down - to top defending champ Matt "The Megatoad" Stonie at the annual July Fourth eating contest. Chestnut, 32, was on a roll as he easily secured victory by swallowing 17 more hot dogs than Stonie, who last year ended Chestnut's streak of eight straight wins to take the championship title at Nathan's Famous on Coney Island.

The 76ers are convinced the best way to build a team is with defensive-minded players. So having shooting guards and small forwards who can play on both sides of the floor are a must in the system they run. The Sixers won't be able to draft a high-quality wing without making a trade this year, and they would have to wait for that player to develop. But in free agency, they could make a run at the Warriors' Harrison Barnes. In coach Brett Brown's system, the shooting guard and small forward positions are interchangeable.

On Tuesday night, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump disparaged New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, saying at a rally in Albuquerque that she has a bad record and "she's got to do a better job. " At the same rally, where windows were smashed and Trump and his supporters clashed with demonstrators, the candidate also mocked Sen. Elizabeth Warren's claim to Native American roots by repeatedly calling her "Pocahontas. " And House Speaker Paul Ryan, sitting down with reporters on Wednesday, wanted to talk about policy?

DETROIT - The Flyers' playoff charge was delayed Wednesday in Detroit, and they will have to regroup if they are going to earn an Eastern Conference playoff spot. Red Wings 3, Flyers 0. In the most important game of the season for both teams, the Flyers started somewhat flat, allowed a bizarre first goal and never recovered before a frenzied crowd at Joe Louis Arena. Jimmy Howard made 30 saves to register his first shutout since opening night against Toronto on Oct 9. "Maybe we could have gotten in his face a little more, tried to take his eyes away, but he made a lot of good saves," defenseman Mark Streit said.

Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald might have suffered a concussion when he was slammed into the boards Sunday in a 6-2 loss in Pittsburgh. He will not be able to play Wednesday in a key game in Detroit, general manager Ron Hextall announced Monday. Hextall would call it only an upper-body injury. Evgeny Medvedev, a healthy scratch for the last 11 games, will replace MacDonald, who is tied for second on the team with a plus-8 rating and has played well since replacing the injured Michael Del Zotto.

This was more than a playoff push by the Flyers. It was a gut punch that landed squarely on the team directly in front of them in the race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Detroit Red Wings, a proud franchise that has made 24 straight trips to the playoffs, arrived at the Wells Fargo Center Tuesday night three points ahead of the Flyers. They left after a 4-3 loss that narrowed their lead to a single point. Factor in the two extra games on the Flyers' schedule and you could argue that they are now in a better position than the Red Wings.
