Bogus bomb threat prompts school evacuation NORTH PHILADELPHIA. Students at Thomas Edison High School were evacuated Thursday after a teacher discovered a threatening note, apparently indicating that someone had placed a bomb inside. Police were called to the school at 151 W. Luzerne Street around 10:30 a.m. and dismissed its students as officers combed the campus for clues. Investigators said the threat turned out to be unfounded. Students were allowed to return about an hour later. METRO

Meek Mill sues Philly PD Rapper, aka Robert Williams, alleges civil rights violations stemming from October arrest Suit alleges police posted pictures of star in custody on Internet JOHNNY NUNEZ/GETTY IMAGES

Rapper Meek Mill — known to police as 25year-old Robert Williams — has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city of Philadelphia and two police officers for allegedly illegally detaining him and posting his picture on Instagram following an Oct. 31 car stop. “We’re trying to find what the immediate financial loss is to Robert,” his attorney Anthony Petrone said. “We know that, at a minimum, he forfeited a deposit for a private plane that he hired to take him to Atlanta that night. He had to forfeit a personal appearance fee for the appearance he was scheduled to make later that evening.” According to the complaint, Williams was driving a Range Rover SUV when around 7:30 p.m., police pulled him over near 11th Street and Girard Avenue. The suit claims the stop was “without cause or justification,” but resulted from racial

‘Baby moo’ found safe VILLANOVA. Investigators are looking for a college student who allegedly kidnapped “Baby Moo” from Hope’s Cookies in Rosemont, Pa. The creature is one-half of a statue depicting a calf and its mother that’s become a local landmark.

Though no charges were filed in connection with the auto stop, Williams did get in some hot water for the incident after claiming that he missed a late October court hearing because he was stuck in New York City due to Hurricane Sandyrelated weather conditions. But the photos that surfaced depicting him at the police precinct around the time of the hearing — some of which he posted to his own social media accounts — put Williams in Philadelphia at the time of the missed hearing, and a judge on Dec. 17 refused to lift his travel ban so he could tour. profiling many officers allegedly use when conducting stop-and-frisks. The two officers named in the suit handcuffed Williams and took him to the 22nd Police District, where he was allegedly held against his will for about nine hours. It is there that “the officers posted and published, or caused to be posted and published, on Instagram and other social media” photos of Williams in custody, the suit alleges.

“Mama Moo is inconsolable and wants her baby back,” owner Herb Spivak said in a statement on Thursday, offering a $500 reward for the calf’s safe return. “Baby Moo” was recovered around 2 p.m. when a Villanova University police officer saw a student exiting a cab with the statue.

Civilians killed in Syria; bye-bye bike bronze No reprieve from strife

Putting o the plea

A very distant third

Soldier defers plea in Afghan shootings trial A U.S. soldier accused of killing 16 villagers in two forays from his camp in Afghanistan deferred making a plea before a U.S. military court on Thursday to charges of premeditated murder, for which prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. U.S. Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, a veteran of four combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, is accused of gunning down the villagers in their homes in two villages in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province. Bales, 39, wearing green military dress, entered his deferred plea through one of his defense attorneys, who also waived reading of charges against Bales. Prosecutors say Bales, 39, acted alone and with “chilling premeditation� when, armed with a pistol, a rifle and a grenade launcher, he left his base twice, returning in the middle of his rampage to tell a fellow soldier: “I just shot up some people.�

Deadspin: Te’o tip from e-mail

Wall Street rises to five-year high

The tip that led to the revelation that one of the most widely recounted U.S. sports narratives of the past year was a hoax came to the editors of an online sports blog as many of their news tips do: an unsolicited e-mail. It led Deadspin.com assignment editor Timothy Burke on the hunt of a story that exposed the heartwrenching tale of standout Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o’s dead girlfriend as a fabrication, Burke said on CNN. Te’o sprang to national prominence last fall when the senior co-captain was seen heroically leading the Fighting Irish to an underdog victory within days of learning his grandmother had died. It was widely reported, Te’o’s girlfriend had died of leukemia within hours of his grandmother’s death. “We got an e-mail last week at Deadspin.com that said ‘Hey, there’s something real weird about Lennay Kekua, Manti Te’o’s allegedly dead girlfriend. You guys should check it out,’� Burke said. REUTERS

THE MAN OF OUR DREAMS Advice

I have to confess that I, too, have had an imaginary girlfriend. To be honest, I think they all were up until I met my wife. So while I can’t pretend to know what was really going on with Notre Dame’s star linebacker Manti Te’o, as Chris Rock would say, “I understand.”

W

e live in a complicated world in which many people are not what they appear. Lance Armstrong has pedaled off of his pedestal. David Petraeus ended up with a biographer who wrote not only between the lines but also between the sheets. I don’t follow pop culture closely, but I’m led to believe even that adorable little Lindsay Lohan has had difficulties. Which brings me to Inauguration Day. Here in D.C., where giving false impressions is an art, President Barack Obama is heading into his second term amid all the expected hoopla. Over the next few days, he will be paraded, serenaded, lauded and applauded. He will deliver a soaring speech, shake hands and assure supporters they were right to reelect him. Then he will probably let many of them down. It’s not entirely his fault. It happens to every president, and all of us are to

blame. Because campaigns are not merely about what a candidate says, they are also about what we hear. Supporters, like lonely souls on Internet dating services, project their wishes onto the candidate. They convince themselves that their views and his are much more closely aligned than the evidence would warrant. In Quoted his first presiden“Here in D.C. ... tial race, for example, Obama giving false was repeatedly impressions is portrayed as a radan art.” ical liberal — then many leftleaning voters seemed astonished when he proved too accommodating to Republicans and big business, and not nearly idealistic enough for their tastes. So the inauguration, even for a second term, is where those dueling realities collide. It’s where the imaginary candidate and the real president meet as if on a blind date, and we all get to see what they have in common — and decide whether the relationship we’ve bet on is one we can live with.

AHEAD OF THE GAME Actor and producer Mark Wahlberg offers his recipe for making a hit ‘Broken City’ adds another shadowy do-gooder to his résumé

N

eed a movie made on a shoestring? Mark Wahlberg might be your

man. The former bad boy rapper turned Oscar-nominated actor and now film and TV producer shared his recipe for making films: “You’ve gotta come in with that television mentality. You’ve got a lot less money and a lot less time, but you’ve got a great piece of material,” he says. The next ingredient is attracting top talent — like Russell Crowe, Wahlberg’s co-star in his latest film, “Broken City” — by serving them juicy roles and offering them a share of the profits. In the crime-thriller genre — where Wahlberg has carved his niche — at a

time when Hollywood studios are reticent to take risks, it’s the only way to stay ahead of the curve, he says. In fact, he’s baffled by massive movie budgets. “I was just in New Mexico shooting this movie in 38 days, and before us ‘The Lone Ranger’ was there,” he recalls. “It’s about two guys on horses and it cost $250 million to make. What the f— were these horses doing? Do they fly? I don’t know. It’s crazy.” By contrast, “Broken City,” in theaters Friday, cost around $55 million to make. In it, Wahlberg plays an ex-NYPD officer haunted by his past deadly vigilantism. Now as a private detective, he’s been hired by New York’s mayor (Crowe) to track the infidelities of the politician’s

I’m ready to go dig a ditch if I have to, whatever I have to do to provide for my family.”

which is his favorite? He grins. “Dignam. ‘The Departed' was the most fun, because I’m from that world. I’ve spent a lot of time with those cops and I just got to f—ing steamroll everybody.” Liz Brown

caping into Mexico certainly doesn’t break any new ground in the action department, but for fans of the genre it’s a welcome and winking return from the former Governator. STEVE GOW

‘Mama’ Director: Andres Muschietti Stars: Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Grade: –—˜™š Tragic circumstances led to two small children (Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nelisse) being abandoned for five years in a cabin in the woods. Rescued, they are adopted by their uncle (“Game of Thrones” star

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend (Jessica Chastain), but the question remains: Who is the mysterious Mama they keep talking about? This film has some nice, subtle creepy reveals, a vivid dream sequence and, of course, the ethereal Mama, who occasionally resembles a giant hairball on the floor, but is eerie nonetheless. It’s spooky rather than scary, but has appropriately creepy kids — the little one even scurries around the floor on all fours like a tiny silverback gorilla — and enough jolts to earn a recommendation.

Healthy habits to adopt this year

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to take for granted the root of a New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolution â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to be resolute. According to Janet Helm, registered dietician and author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cooking Light: The Food Loverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Healthy Habits Cookbook,â&#x20AC;? getting healthy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and staying healthy all year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is about starting small. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your goal should be attainable. If you have success, that fuels greater success and then you can celebrate the little victories.â&#x20AC;?

Eat a healthy breakfast

Mindful eating isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;namasteâ&#x20AC;? every time you chow down â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about recognizing when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hungry and when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re full, Helm says. Diets that demonize certain foods make it hard to enjoy them at all, so Helm suggests eating all kinds of foods and focusing on controlling portions instead of restrictions.

Stewart, Pattinson top highest-grossing couples ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

We’ve frequently wondered why Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson got back together. Even before her little fling with Rupert Sanders fueled an entire summer’s worth of gossip columns (thanks again, girl!), these two never looked all that happy. But now, we understand: Together, they’ve helped the “Twilight” franchise rake in $635 million at the domestic box office, which is only a fraction of the films’ $3.3 billion worldwide haul. This makes them the highestgrossing romantic celebrity co-stars, according to a new list from Forbes. Being involved in real life wasn’t a requirement for the list, but it seemed to help. Pattinson and

Stewart handily beat No. 2 — “The Vow” costars Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum — by a cool $510 million. Not even the iconic Carrie and Mr. Big could compete: Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth raked in a mere $95 million for their “Sex and the City” movies. Is it their unique chemistry, or is it the fact that “Twilight” fans will stare at anything that sparkles for two hours? Doesn’t matter — for $635 million, we’d throw love to the werewolves, too.

Globe-nominated role in “The Paperboy” thanks to an infamous scene in which she urinates on Zach Efron. But Kidman doesn’t get what the big deal is. “I just don’t find urination shocking. I think I peed in the beginning of ‘Eyes Wide Shut,’ too. But then, I don’t find a lot of things shocking. Violence is a lot more shocking than sex — sex is primal,” she tells the Hollywood Reporter. “I felt shy singing in ‘Moulin Rouge,’ but peeing — no, not shy.”

Let’s just be really weird friends The New York Post reported that Russell Crowe and Dita Von Teese enjoyed “a romantic couple’s massage” at the Four Seasons hotel in New York last month and have been getting flirty. Now, Crowe has taken to Twitter to deny the story. “Dita Von Teese is brave, smart, sweet and elegant. She is a friend of mine. Who wouldn’t want friends like that? Friends, not lovers,” Crowe tweeted. Be honest: There’s no way you thought a story about Russell Crowe, Dita Von Teese and Twitter was going to end that classy.

Pilobolus Dance Theatre

The Connecticut-based dance company Pilobolus makes use of a unique physical language that finds its members’ bodies intertwining and separating in kaleidoscopic patterns. The prospect of another artist learning that language may seem daunting, but the company has thrived on collaboration over its four-decade existence. “Every time we collaborate with somebody from the outside, we first have to teach them how to collaborate,” says dancer Jun Kuribayashi. “Someone like

a cartoonist is used to having complete and utter control over every aspect of what they’re presenting to their audience. But we’re living organisms, so it’s very difficult.” Pilobolus’ collaborations have included cartoonist Art Spiegelman, author Maurice Sendak and puppeteer Basil Twist. They’ve appeared on “Sesame Street” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and interpreted the Best Picture nominees at the 79th Academy Awards. The program they’re bringing to Philly this weekend features several collaborations. Two of the pieces spring from “All Is Not

Lost,” a video the company made with choreographer Trish Sie and pop band OK Go. “Azimuth” takes MacArthur Genius awardwinning juggler Michael Moschen’s art to a celestial plane, while “Automaton” looks at our plugged-in world with MoroccanBelgian choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. The final work, “Gnomen,” gets back to basics; a tribute to a former company member who died of AIDS, the piece pares the company down to four male dancers, as it was at its founding.

‘Assassin’

The moment playwright David Robson saw the headline of Jack Tatum’s obituary in the New York Times, he knew what his next play was going to be. Known as “the Assassin,” Tatum was one of the most respected (and/or feared) defensive football players in the NFL. He is perhaps best remembered for a hit delivered on Aug. 12, 1978, which left Darryl Stingley a quadriplegic. The obit read: “Jack Tatum, Whose Tackle Paralyzed Player, Dies at 61.” “To me, that legacy was just so tragic,” says Robson. “As a playwright, certain things really grab your attention. Well, that certainly grabbed mine.” In a rare co-production,

“Assassin” will begin previews this weekend at InterAct Theater, but will move to Act II Playhouse in February. Surprisingly, the Stingley character never makes an appearance in Robson’s script. Instead, the play takes place in a Chicago hotel room, where a Tatum-esque character confronts the paralyzed player’s lawyer. “I knew the Tatum character was going to be in the play from the beginning,” explains Robson. “I knew each of them made attempts to reconcile, but never put it together. Unfinished business, lack of closure — those are things that get a playwright writing.” Friday-March 17, www.act2playhouse.org BRUCE WALSH JOHN DAUGHTRY

Dermatologists aren’t just good for mole checks They can help you look great, too! Top NYC-based dermatologist Dr. Ariel Ostad on the new treatments people are talking about

W

hen you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see, the first piece of practical advice NYC-based dermatologist Dr. Ariel Ostad has is, “Don’t be too hard on yourself. Too many people are too hard on themselves.” His second piece of advice? “Don’t be ashamed if you want to look better.” We live, he says, in a competitive environment, and there are plenty of nonsurgical procedures that can help you look better and feel refreshed. We talked to him about two hot new treatments.

Ultherapy “This exciting new procedure is a skin lifting [and]

Dr. Ostad

tightening procedure that uses ultrasound to penetrate deep into the skin to cause contractions,” he says. Dr. Ostad says Ultherapy is “remarkable” because it helps the doctor see layers of skin and pene-

trate deep enough to make a change. “In the past, we haven’t been able to penetrate the layer of tissue which is called the SMAS [Sub-Muscular Aponeurotic System], which is the layer that is right above the muscle used by surgeons to pull back the skin.” Ultherapy can be used almost anywhere: Dermatologists can tighten the neck and lift jowls to create a much smoother, defined jaw line. They can also raise eyebrows and improve hooding on the eyelids. “I’ve used it for patients post-pregnancy for the sagging skin, stretch marks and loose skin from multiple pregnancies. It’s remarkable what we can achieve.”

wenty years ago, after moving from Philadelphia to Boston, G. Love’s musical career quickly rose from the streets and subway stations to regular club gigs that eventually landed him a record deal that brought him back to Philly. “I moved to Boston because I knew it was one of the only places you could get a permit to be a street performer,” says G. Love (born Garrett Dutton). “I looked like a homeless person. I had this cart with a folding chair, my amp, a mic stand and all my gear and my guitar. I would wear a seersucker suit and Pumas with the fat laces. It was pretty competitive out in Harvard Square and I wouldn’t make too much money, but I got my s— together and that led to some solo shows.” After Mark Sandman of Morphine got G. Love a weekly gig in Cambridge, interest from record companies soon followed. The

Paying their own way Radiohead threw the music industry a curveball when, in 2007, the band released its album “In Rainbows” using a paywhat-you-want model. Permitting fans to potentially walk away with the album for free wouldn’t normally be a sound idea. But, for a band that has since sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and has won five Grammy Awards, there wasn’t much risk involved. Ultimately, Radiohead would make its money back, and then some. Everyone Everywhere, the Philadelphia-based indie-rock four-piece, has

I made it up! I really believe that,” he says. “I remember the exact moment that I stumbled upon it and I was playing on the street in Philly and I finished playing this sort of driving blues groove of mine, and it was just a two-chord jam — nothing fancy. I just started rapping these lyrics from

“We’re worried about all sorts of existential crap, and where our lives are going. Luckily, these things make good fodder for the arts.” MATT SCOTTOLINE

used a similar model since 2008, allowing fans at concerts to pay what they want for CDs and other merchandise. Last year, the band held an online presale for 100 vinyl copies of its second eponymous album on a pay-what-youwant model. Within 20 minutes, they broke even,

selling all 100 copies. In a time when illegal downloading is the norm, and bands are seeking creative ways to distribute music (and ideally break even), it’s a fascinating approach. “We wouldn’t care if we’d lost money,” says bassist Matt Scottoline, 26. “We know it’s not a mon-

ey-making enterprise to be in an indie band. We just want people to hear our music. We worked really hard on this album, but it’s more gratifying for us for people to hear it, even if they only pay 50 cents. None of us expect to ever quit our day jobs.” ELLIOTT SHARP

Eric B. and Rakim’s ‘Paid in Full,’ and it worked. I was like, ‘Damn that’s some s— right there!’ That was kind of an epiphany for me. I thought ‘There’s no other white kid on the street playing Dobro and rapping, I bet.’” Nine LPs and several EPs deep, he’s promoting his 2011 album, “Fixin’ to Die.” The album is on Brushfire Records, a label run by Jack Johnson, who he frequently collaborates with and even had as a special guest on his record when Johnson was still relatively unknown. But Dutton sounds like he’s doing anything but fixin’ to die. “It’s funny,” he says. “It’s our 20th year right now. ... I just want to make really honest and raw music. ... For me, there are no rules right now. It’s just about making amazing records.” Nolan Gawron letters@metro.us

Ford gives peek at fuel-economy push with F-150 pickup concept

GEOFF ROBINS/AFP/GETTY IMAGES

New ‘Atlas’ model is lighter than its predecessor Includes ‘EcoBoost’ turbo engine to get more miles per gallon GM, Chrysler also showcase trucks Ford Motor Co. gave a sneak peek on Tuesday at the future direction of its highly popular F-150 pickup truck series by unveiling a concept version called the “Atlas” that reflects Ford’s push to improve gas mileage across its product line. The vehicle, due out for the 2015 model year, will be much lighter than its predecessor and has a more rugged look. It also represents a vision of the future of pickup trucks that contrasts with that of rival General Motors Co. The F-150 concept is

outfitted with the next generation of Ford’s turbocharged engine, known as EcoBoost, to wring out more miles per gallon. It also features active grille and wheel shutters to improve aerodynamics — a technology that improves fuel economy by about 2 percent, Ford has previously said. The concept “shows that we’re going to do whatever it takes to be preferred in the market segment,” Chief Executive Alan Mulally told reporters Tuesday during an industry conference held in conjunction with the Detroit auto show. “Every indication that we’re absolutely committed to improving these vehicles is a major proof point for the Ford plan,” he said. “That is what is going to allow us to grow.” The second-largest U.S. automaker is cutting the weight of its cars and trucks and using turbocharged engines to meet stricter federal standards

for fuel economy and attract the growing number of truck buyers who value fuel efficiency. Boosting fuel economy in trucks is particularly challenging because they are large and must be capable of towing heavy loads. Using hybrid and electric car technology remains extremely costly. While Ford said the next F-150 would be lighter than the outgoing version, executives stopped short of specifying

the kinds of materials or weight savings targeted for the new F-150. Raj Nair, head of global product development, said Ford is exploring the use of lightweight materials like high-strength steel, aluminum and carbon fiber across its lineup. “Part of our strategy is to have all of our vehicles go on a diet in terms of weight,” Chief Operating Officer Mark Fields said on the sidelines of the Detroit auto show.

Mazzucola touted the technology in the new models that makes driving easier, safer and more convenient than ever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People want their cars to be their living rooms,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want to access their e-mail and text messages as if they are home.â&#x20AC;? For those who are prone to becoming drowsy behind the wheel late at night, some new cars prevent drivers from falling asleep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sensors in the car measure eye movement. If they sense you are sleeping, they will activate a vibrating mechanism in the seat which will wake you up,â&#x20AC;? Mazzucola explained. Dealers in the region consider the auto show an important marketing tool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thirty to thirty-five percent of all vehicles sold in our market are directly tied to the Philadelphia Auto Show,â&#x20AC;? said Mazzucola. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They either confirm their decision or find another option that they did not know was available.â&#x20AC;?

When Tokuo Fukuichi was brought back to Toyota Motor Corp to become head of design, he was given a simple directive from President Akio Toyoda: Make Toyota cars simple and cool. He took a risk and objected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, look, Mr. President, just cool is not good enough,â&#x20AC;? Fukuichi told Reuters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Toyota had already tried hard to fix ugly parts and make them look better. What Toyota lacks the most is character.â&#x20AC;? Fukuichi, 61, knows something about character. In the late 1980s, he designed the first-generation Previa, also known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;egg-vanâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one of the most love-it-or-hate-it Toyota vehicles ever.

GM enters talks with Facebook about ads General Motors Co. and Facebook Inc. are discussing the return of the U.S. automaker as a paid advertiser about eight months after GM said it would stop running ads on the social networking website, a top GM executive said. Alan Batey, GMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interim marketing chief, said at the Detroit auto show that discussions with Facebook officials were ongoing, though the Detroit company had nothing to announce about a return to Facebook as a paid advertiser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still actively

talking to them and looking at opportunities that come our way,â&#x20AC;? Batey told Reuters on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Mexican standoff here. We just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the valueâ&#x20AC;? in the ads. Three days before Facebookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s May 2012 IPO, GM said it was dropping paid ads on the website because they had little impact on consumers. Also last May, GM said it would not advertise on CBS during the 2013 Super Bowl because the ad spots were overpriced. Batey said that decision remained in place. REUTERS

Analysts say Toyota, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest car maker by sales volume, has been driven to change. Toyota is being is squeezed between brands such as BMW and Volkswagenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Audi, which are seen as leaders in design, and a fastrising rival in Hyundai that has won praise for the way it has managed to make its mass-market sedans look far more expensive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Competitors are on the rise, and they are generally improving in areas such as safety technology and fuel efficiency,â&#x20AC;? said Kunihiro Matsumoto, an autos analyst at UBS Securities in Japan.â&#x20AC;?

rare move, he asked Fukuichi to rejoin Toyota in 2011 after he had left for group company Kanto Auto Works. Two years on, Toyotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designs are starting to show signs of change. From luxury brand Lexusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pinched-in-the-middle â&#x20AC;&#x153;spindleâ&#x20AC;? grille to the Auris hatchbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sharply angled headlights, Toyota is taking steps to distance itself from a legacy of â&#x20AC;&#x153;plain vanillaâ&#x20AC;? styling. Not everyone is happy. At a shareholdersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meeting in June, the very first issue raised from the floor was a complaint about the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;faceâ&#x20AC;? of Lexus models. But Fukuichi is unfazed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take risks now, there will be no future for us,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Amendment to the Constitution, I think the freedom to own and bear arms had the premise that those weapons would be used in a rational and responsible manner, one that did not jeopardize the safety and security of fellow, law-abiding citizens. In light of our increasing rate of addictions to alcohol, drugs, pain killers and other prescription medicines, not to mention the myriad of other social debilitations which contribute to irrationality and irresponsibility, the public is justified in doubting the sanctity of the earlier premise. A high-powered assault weapon with an extended magazine in the hands of a dysfunctional person is a devastatingly destructive combination. We can no longer be dogmatic about the Second Amendment the way literal evangelicals are dogmatic about the creation, ignoring opposing data and evidence.

was delighted to see attention finally being paid to the health benefits of a vegan/vegetarian diet. Never has it been easier to explore non-meat options and alternatives, and even die-hard meat eaters are enjoying readily available products such as Garden and Morningstar Farms. I have long urged my patients to consider decreasing or eliminating the amount of meat they eat — not just to benefit their own health, but also to help impact the negative effects of a meatbased diet on wildlife, the environment and world hunger. Last but certainly not least is the amount of animal suffering that can be reduced by enjoying just a few vegetarian/vegan meals a week. There are certainly many reasons to “go vegan,” and there has never been a better time. PATRICE GREEN, MD,

With the money NRA makes from the sale of firearms, and the contributions they receive from organizations and people supporting their cause, it would only be fair that the NRA be solely responsible for compensating the victims of gun violence, instead of the taxpayers — in particular, since many of us are in favor of gun control.

Kelly ‘all in’ with Eagles, college days behind him New coach impressed with fans, organization Promises not to return to college ranks Birds’ offense will reflect personnel

Kelly is in the process of evaluating his roster and picking a coaching staff.

in contact with Kelly and through a mutual friend heard that Kelly was wavering. Talks heated up Tuesday night, and after Kelly had a chance to address his college team privately, he phoned Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to tell him he was ready to leave campus. Kelly called the decision final.

Chip Kelly has been billed as a tireless worker, constantly studying and breaking down game film. His first assignment on his first day at his new job was ingratiating himself to the locals. At his introductory press conference Thursday, Kelly jokingly referenced both the Wing Bowl and Vince Papale. The new Eagles coach called Philadelphia a “special situation.” “It was very evident to me, it’s an iconic franchise with a passionate, passionate owner and great people in this company, and that’s the thing that struck me,” he said. When the Eagles first approached Kelly about the job, about 11 days ago, he turned it down to stay at Oregon. But Eagles GM Howie Roseman kept

“I burned the boat. I’m not going back [to college],” he said. “I made the jump. I want to be an NFL coach.” Kelly is in the process of evaluating the Eagles’ roster and selecting assistant coaches. He raved about Nick Foles but wouldn’t name a starting quarterback. All that will come soon enough. “We’re going to look at everything we can do to put the best product on the field,” he said. “There’s nothing that’s on the board right now.

Reid

New coach thanks Reid for friendly advice Would an owner of a Fortune 500 company consult a fired employee about his replacement? Probably not, yet that’s what Jeffrey Lurie did when he reached out to Andy Reid to glean insight on Chip Kelly. Reid, in turn, contacted Kelly to sell him on the Eagles’ organization. Big Red sent Kelly a text message Wednesday to congratulate him. “One person that I want to thank, in terms of advice in this whole thing, was Andy Reid and the fact that Andy reached out to me and told me about his experience here just told me what this organization’s all about,” said Kelly.

Just Oregon or Birds for Kelly The Eagles weren’t the only NFL team interested in hiring Chip Kelly. The Browns, led by former Eagles president Joe Banner, also held court with him, but those talks disintegrated when his meeting with Eagles brass ran long. “We were not in competition with anybody for any of our candidates,” owner Jeffrey Lurie said.

Obviously, the end of last season for them wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the way they wanted. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna come in harder.â&#x20AC;?

GETTY IMAGES

Close your eyes and you can picture Claude Giroux drilling Sidney Crosby into the boards off the opening face-off of Game 6, then scoring the goal less than a minute later. Visualize 19-year-old Sean Couturier beating Marc-Andre Fleury to complete a Game 2 hat trick. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget how the Penguins kept taking runs at Giroux, Couturier and Brayden Schenn, with James Neal and Arron Asham drawing suspensions. Well, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to use your imagination anymore. The puck drops 3 p.m. Saturday to start the NHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 48-game sprint to the playoffs. And to whet our appetites, guess who they have squaring off in the opener?
