Alice Paul wouldn't have wanted her Mount Laurel birthplace to become a historical museum. She focused on the future - on a day when equality for women finally would be enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. So I imagine the pioneering suffragist and feminist (1885-1977) would feel right at home at today's Paulsdale, headquarters of an educational and advocacy organization that carries on her mission. "When we decided to do something to honor Alice Paul, we weren't interested in a plaque," says Barbara Irvine, 70, of Cinnaminson, who helped found the Alice Paul Institute in 1985.

Sean Moses allegedly liked to record video of girls and women at the beach and sports events. He also did it secretly in store dressing rooms and homes - even of women in bed with him, police say. Then, they add, he posted the videos on a pornographic website on which he had a following. "Despicable and offensive" is how William Colarulo, superintendent of Radnor Township police, put it. Moses, 37, of the 700 block of Broad Acres Road in Narberth, was charged Monday with multiple counts of invasion of privacy, criminal use of a communication device, trespass, and related crimes.

SEAN MOSES, an accused serial peeping tom, wrote a tutorial to go with a video of two Villanova University coeds undressing that police say he posted on a porn website: "When you get caught out of position you ruin what could have been an awesome semester in voyeurism 101," he wrote. Moses, 37, got caught out of position. And yesterday, Radnor Township Police said, detectives ruined his "semester in voyeurism 101" when they showed up at the Narberth home he shares with his girlfriend and their 6-year-old daughter and arrested him on more than 200 criminal counts for his voyeuristic videos.

MEN KNOW there's some kind of lady craze surrounding "Fifty Shades of Grey," but many may not know what's driving it. You see your wife or girlfriend reading the E.L. James book, but you know from your painful experience of having a go at Eat Pray Love that what happens on your wife's nightstand stays on your wife's nightstand. Taking one for the team is Daily News movie critic Gary Thompson , who read his complimentary copy of Fifty Shades so that he could more fairly review the film before it hits screens Friday.
