GINA Boubion's recent commentary on the Holy Father was depressing. It's sad that this commentary was chosen to represent the attitude of Catholics toward the visit that Pope Benedict XVI made to the United States. At first, people demand an apology for the horrific scandals. Now, she says, "it's too late. " Come on, you can't have both! Let's give the church a chance to rebuild itself and overcome the sins and trials of past years. In fact, that's precisely what is happening.

She didn't want to tell her boss that she was late for her job. She didn't want to tell her parents that she'd skipped work and spent the night with a friend. So instead, police said, Bridgette Neiss claimed that she had been abducted at gunpoint outside a Giant supermarket in West Pottsgrove before being dropped off by her kidnappers, unhurt, a day later in Phoenixville. Neiss, 18, of Spring City, now stands accused of two misdemeanor criminal counts related to filing a false police report, West Pottsgrove Detective Sgt. Steven Ziegler said Wednesday.

Two years ago, I reviewed Roundabout Theatre Company's stylish production of Sophie Treadwell's Machinal on Broadway. I wondered then, given the play's dated gender politics and dated expressionist theatricality, why bother to revive it after 86 years. EgoPo Theatre Company has provided the answer: Its stunning production, just opened under Brenna Geffers' superb direction, makes the play both relevant and riveting. Machinal premiered in 1928, the same year that Ruth Snyder was electrocuted at Sing Sing prison for murdering her husband.

CAMDEN Last Thursday, Carmen Feliciano went to visit her 23-year-old daughter in the Camden County Jail, as she had done nearly every week since the young woman was arrested July 3 on a charge of violating probation. When Feliciano arrived, she said she was told that her daughter had declined the visit. "I said, 'That's impossible. She sees me and her daughter every week. Is everything OK?' " Without an answer, Feliciano said, she went home. Two days later, her daughter, Evelina Heredia, was found dead in her jail cell, Camden County prosecutors have said.

A 20-year-old woman, who was overweight but otherwise healthy, started feeling an odd, dull pain in her chest. She hoped that if she put up with it for a few days, it might go away. But it didn't. So she went to see her family doctor, who immediately sent her to a cardiologist. She was given a stress test to see if exercise caused any changes in blood flow to her heart. The doctor also ordered an echocardiogram, which sends sound waves to the heart to measure the movement of the valves and heart muscle.

By Marisa Porges If current polls prove accurate, the United States will elect its first woman as president this November. She would join 22 female presidents, prime ministers, and chancellors, from Great Britain to South Korea, Germany to Argentina, bringing the total number of female heads of state to 23 out of a possible 195.

Hey there, Gabby Douglas. I know you're busy winding things down in Rio, where the U.S. women's gymnastics team has dazzled the world. But if you have a sec, I'd like to introduce you to Ronnie's Law of Inverse Evidence, which I hope gives you new appreciation for your haters. But first, three anecdotes. The first is about a woman I know with breast cancer who is excited that chemo has made her hair fall out. She sees her baldness as evidence that the medicine is doing its important work, which is to kill the cancer cells that are trying to kill her. She's so excited, she never wears the wig she bought to cover her head.

By any measure, federal authorities said Thursday, she is an extraordinary young woman. A 24-year-old nursing assistant who, from the moment she was violently snatched off a Germantown street two years ago, had the presence of mind to leave behind the trail of clues that eventually would aid in her rescue. One who, even while locked in the trunk of her abductor's car as he drove her across three states, attentively noted the noises his tires made as he switched from paved to unpaved roads - a trick she'd picked up from a movie.

Sally Johnston has been chaperoning - perhaps mother-henning is a better way to put it - Miss New Jerseys for 50 years. Some of the 50 or 60 young women she has taken under her wing have become like daughters to this 78-year-old mother of three daughters of her own. Many have become good friends. Only one, says Johnston, she hopes not to see again. But a special few, like Cara McCollum, Miss New Jersey 2013, have transcended all those boundaries to become "like an angel" in Johnston's life.
