‘They took Halloween away from the kids’ Hallow-meanies. An elementary school principal canceled Halloween in school. Orlando Taylor might as well have handed out pennies on Halloween night. The principal of Inglewood Elementary School in Montgomery County sent a letter to parents Tuesday that announced the cancelation of school-sponsored Halloween activities — parties, parades, costume

Halloween, that some see as secular, are viewed by others as having religious overtones,” Taylor wrote in the letter. But then Wednesday, the North Penn School District, which governs the Lansdale-based school, posted a statement on its website claiming the principal went too far. “The … letter addressing Halloween is not an accurate representation of the school district’s administrative regulation,” the statement said. However, the districtwide religious and cultural holiday policy, set

Is Philadelphia’s Chinatown disappearing? That’s one of the questions at the heart of “Chinatown Then and Now,” a report released yesterday by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund. “Chinatowns are facing the threat of disappearing,” study author Bethany Li said. “The census numbers really show the changes and shift in demographics in the last three decades.” Median rents and home values in Philadelphia’s Chinatown rose from 1990 to 2010, outpacing those of the city overall. So did Chinatown’s population, though the share of those ages 17 and under dropped, as did the share of those 65 and older, which the report attributed to the decrease in family households precipitated by the rise of luxury living developments. Chinatown is hemmed in on all sides by publicly funded projects, further

restricting the potential for growth. According to the report, the only viable prospect for neighborhood expansion over the past two decades was in what was once Chinatown North. But that area, instead of being for affordable housing development, has since been re-christened Callowhill, or the Loft District, by developers converting large industrial properties to lofts and studios for largely non-Asian members of the creative class. “The escalation of property values north of Vine Street, especially, but in all parts of Chinatown, is also a threat, in that this has been a neighborhood that’s been critical for working-class immigrants to enter into the city,” Ellen Somekawa, director of Asian Americans United, said. “That’s a threat to the vital nature of this neighborhood.”

Members of Congress seeing signs of hope in fiscal impasse Risky. The impasse has rattled markets with the threat that borrowing limit will not be raised. Republicans and Democrats in Congress saw signs of hope yesterday for a break in their fiscal impasse, as members of both parties floated the possibility of a short-term increase in the debt limit to allow time for broader negotiations on the budget. The slight shift in tone was aided by a column by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, who urged a negotiated end to the stalemate but did not mention Republican demands for linking changes in the federal

health care law with government funding. “Right now, we need to find common ground,� Ryan, the party’s 2012 vice presidential nominee who had been largely silent in the confrontation, wrote in the Wall Street Journal. President Barack Obama scolded Republicans on Tuesday for threatening economic chaos, but said he would talk about anything including the health care law if Republicans reopened the government and lifted the debt ceiling even for the short term. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner rejected that idea as “unconditional surrender,� but other Republicans have showed a willingness to consider a short-term deal if there was a framework in place for negotiations.

House GOP to meet Obama today at White House President Barack Obama will sit down today with some of his main adversaries in the fight over raising the U.S. debt ceiling and ending a government shutdown, meeting with Republicans who control the House of Representatives. A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, the top U.S. Republican in Washington, said Boehner, his deputy, Eric Cantor, and various other House Republicans will meet with Obama.

permit the government to pay a $100,000 tax-free payment to families of fallen troops during the impasse. At least five families of soldiers killed last weekend in Afghanistan were affected by the suspension.

President Barack Obama nominated Federal Reserve Vice Chair Janet Yellen yesterday to run the world’s most influential central bank and urged the Senate to confirm her without delay. Yellen, an advocate for aggressive action to stimulate U.S. economic growth through low interest rates and large-scale bond purchases, would replace Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, whose second term ends on Jan. 31. “Janet is exceptionally well qualified for this role,” Obama said at a White House ceremony, with a beaming Yellen

standing by his side. “She doesn’t have a crystal ball, but what she does have is a keen understanding about how markets and the economy work, not just in theory but also in the real world. And she calls it like she sees it.” If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, which is expected to endorse her despite opposition from some Republicans, Yellen would provide continuity with policies under Bernanke. She would likely move cautiously in reining in monetary stimulus put in place to shore up the world’s largest economy. Yellen, who spoke briefly after Obama, said she would promote maximum employment, stable prices and a sound financial system. She said there was more to do to ensure people who were out of work can find jobs. REUTERS

Comcast product controls your remote through Twitter Dollars. The messaging platform is setting its sights on grabbing a piece of TV advertising. Comcast Corp. announced yesterday that it developed a new remote control feature in partnership with Twitter that allows users to turn the channel through a tweet. The “See It” button enables viewers to tune in to a live or On Demand show like “Sunday Night Football” or “The Voice” through their set-top box or mobile device. In addition, the button will let users program digital video recorders or to buy movie tickets through Fandango. “Now with See It, they’ll be able to tune in directly from Twitter,” Dick Costolo, CEO of Twit-

ter, said in a statement. Comcast and Twitter said they are in discussions with other distribution partners and TV networks to use the feature to promote their content. The hope is the See It button will become as ubiquitous as the Facebook “like.” “There is a lot of promotion and discussion around entertainment on Twitter, but the link around that consumption is broken,” Sam Schwartz, Comcast chief business development officer, told Reuters. “This is another tool to help people find what they want to watch.” REUTERS

Nobel Prize. Scientists who took chemistry into cyberspace win Three U.S. scientists won the Nobel chemistry prize yesterday for pioneering work on computer programs that simulate complex chemical processes and have revolutionized research in areas from drugs to solar energy. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, awarding the prize of 8 million crowns ($1.25 million) to Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel, said their work had effectively taken chemistry into cyberspace. Long gone were the days of modelling reactions using plastic

balls and sticks. Chemical reactions occur at lightning speed as electrons jump between atomic nuclei, making it virtually impossible to map every separate step in chemical processes involving large molecules like proteins. Powerful computer models, first developed by the three scientists in the 1970s, offer a new window onto such reactions and have become a mainstay for researchers in thousands of academic and industrial laboratories around the world.

Another Kardashian divorce?

THE WORD

She won’t put that tongue away, will she?

It looks like Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom will soon be following in the footsteps of Kris and Bruce Jenner. TMZ.com reports that Khloe wants a divorce and is “anxious” to end it, but hasn’t because of Odom’s fragile state. No matter what the ending, it looks like it will be an “easy” divorce — they have an iron-tight prenup which keeps the assets of the couple separate. The Kardashians may be many things but dummies about money is not one of them.

Bow Wow catfishing is Bow Wow approved The economy is crap. Our government can’t function. Global warming is going to destroy us all. But look on the bright side: At least we live in era of catfishing. I realize that is a terribly callous thing to say. Being catfished no doubt feels awful. I don’t care. This makes me really happy. So here’s the deal. On this week’s “Catfish,” an astute young woman named Keyonnah began an online relationship with rapper Bow Wow. He refused to video chat with her, but they exchanged

texts and he sent her $10,000 in gifts. But — shocker — the man who refused to meet her was actually not a famous rapper, but a woman named Dee who liked to lure in chicks by using Bow Wow’s likeness because she “liked a challenge.” The best part of this, however, is that Bow Wow is super into it. “I feel honored,” he said in a reaction video posted by his BET show “106 & Park.” “It’s dope and it’s fly when someone wants to be you. And not only they wanna be you, in their mind they are you. That’s crazy. But I

like it. It’s free promo for myself.” Bow Wow then invited Dee and Keyonnah to hang out with him, which is a much happier ending than catfishings usually have.

‘Electric’ ladies first R&B. Janelle Monae pays homage to pioneering women on her new album.

Janelle Monae has welcomed you to “Metropolis,” and now she takes you to “Electric Lady” land. / MARC BAPTIST

Though Janelle Monae sometimes seems absorbed in a futuristic world of androids and clones, she pays homage in song to two reallife female groundbreakers on her second studio album, “The Electric Lady”: astronaut Sally Ride and actress Dorothy Dandridge. “‘The Electric Lady’ [refers to] the ladies who are out there in this world and should be respected,” Monae says. In 1954 Dandridge was the first African American to be nominated for an Academy Award for best actress, for her role in “Carmen Jones.” Monae extols the virtues of the actress in the jazzy “Dorothy Dandridge Eyes.” Ride’s service on the crew of the space shuttle

Challenger in 1983 made her the first American woman in space. Monae’s “Sally Ride” is a rocking ballad with searing guitar, an appropriate tribute. “She was definitely working as an astronaut during a time when women were not being accepted; she was the minority,” Monae says of Ride, who passed away last year. “I thought it was important to pay homage to her and tell her story, and also she was in a same-sex relationship for a while ... and [back then] women who If you go

‘Oh, the hell with it,’ and then we just go home. But what we love about these lovers is that they don’t think that. They go all the way and in the end they would rather die than be apart. It somehow chimes with the memory of first love and early love, which we’ve all been through.” And when he says “we all,” he’s including himself in that equation. “I suppose I respond to that as much as anyone else does, really. Odd as it may seem looking at this porky old fellow, bald and fat, once inside there was a lover.” That does leave one nagging question though: With so many previous adaptations of the Bard’s

love story — and especially with Franco Zeffirelli’s definitive 1968 edition and Baz Luhrmann’s more experimental 1996 entry — why does the world need yet another? “There are certain stories that won’t die, and they just continually get reinvented,” Fellowes explains. “Sometimes [‘Romeo and Juliet’ has] been turned into modern musicals about the back streets of New York or it’s been made modern and set in an ice rink or it’s in an underground garage or everyone’s in Nazi uniforms. But the point is we keep going back to it. It touches something at our very core. And that’s why it seemed right to give this generation their own ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and not constantly get out a fuzzy VHS of Zeffirelli’s version.”

Catch the Lantern’s “Emma,” running through Oct. 27. / MARK GARVIN

Courtship. A local Victorian expert tells us how not to become “damaged goods.”

The weekend will be a dream come true for local Janeites (read: exuberant fans of Jane Austen), as the Lantern Theater Company’s Jane Austen Festival swings into full promenade. The fest includes Michael Bloom’s adaptation of “Emma,” running all month, along with wine tastings, English country dance lessons and tea ritual demonstrations Oct. 11-15. On Saturday, local Janeite extraordinaire Margaret C. Sullivan, author of “The Jane Austen Handbook,” will lead a discussion on etiquette and manners in the early 19th century. We asked Sullivan about Victorian era dating — a complicated endeavor, as it turns out. How would you ask someone on a date in

Jane Austen’s England? Well, they didn’t have dates per se. They would go to public and private balls. Anyone could buy a ticket to a public ball. People who were more upper-class — or thought they were — would avoid the public ones. So you would ask someone to a ball, not on a date? No. You wouldn’t ask them to go with you. You went on your own basically, in order to find someone to eventually marry. And how did you let this person know you were interested? If you were a man, you would ask them to dance. If you asked her twice, everyone knew you were interested. If you asked her a third time, she and

her family would likely expect a marriage proposal. When could you be alone with her? Once you were engaged. Even just to talk? Usually. That seems rather impractical. But extremely practical for the period, because you couldn’t prove that you only talked without a witness, and that might be enough for someone to question what happened. The stakes were just so high, especially for the women. Virginity was so highly prized that even an untoward rumor could cause a woman to be considered damaged goods.

Days before she walked the runway at Stella McCartney and Chanel’s Spring 2014 Paris Fashion Week shows, we met up with Miranda Kerr at the chic rooftop of the Gramercy Park Hotel. There, the star of Mango’s new grunge-inspired fall campaign talked about her fave looks from the ’90s (“An oversized blazer, ankle boots and leather jacket with studs”) and let us in on her style and beauty essentials. How has your personal style changed since becoming a mom? I keep it more practical now. It’s all about fabrics that don’t crease because I’m always holding [my son. Flynn] always wants to be in my arms or swinging on swings. I think comfort is important and wearing fabrics that make you feel good and accentuate the parts about yourself that you like. It’s not necessarily about following a trend, but finding pieces that work with your body type.

You know how to rock a red lip. What are some of your beauty tips? If I’m tired I just put on a red lip and sunglasses and it’s a simple and effective way to uplift the face — just add a splash of color. Sometimes I’ll use a bit of the lip color on my cheeks so I look a bit more alive — like the blood is pumping. You’re a certified health coach. Any new healthy habits you’ve incorporated? I have hot water and half a lemon in the morning. It’s a very simple tip that cleanses the digestive system and it really kickstarts your metabolism. Then I have a cold pressed green juice, like kale, spinach and celery with lemon, and then I have a

smoothie that I make myself. I m think it’s really th important to have im balance in life and a bala fill your body with nutrients when you can, but then also know that you’re a human being and you can’t be too hard on yourself. I just don’t believe in depriving yourself because life is short and we’re here to enjoy it. Yeah, no one likes hanging out with people who don’t eat cookies. Yeah, it’s no fun. But to feel your best you have to take care of yourself. I know what to do to be energized: my smoothie, my juice, my lemon water, getting enough sleep and drinking alkaline water throughout the day. I do mediation, yoga or Pilates four to five times a week. I also like acupuncture and massage.

SURPRISE! YOU’RE ALREADY IN A RELATIONSHIP

AMBER MADISON AMBERMADISONONLINE. COM Amber Madison is a Manhattanbased relationship expert and dating coach. She is the author of “Are All Guys Assholes?” for which she traveled the country, spoke to over 1,000 men and discovered that the answer to this question is no. You can follow her on Twitter @ambermadi.

For many of us, relationships seem like a big commitment, which is why we can be so hesitant about making something “official.” Being in a relationship means you’re accountable to the person you’re sleeping with. It means that if you’re unhappy you have to end it. It signifies that if you act like a jackass, your partner has the right to be upset with you. But the truth is, these things are true whether you call your involvement with someone a “relationship” or not. Relationships don’t start the second you change your Facebook status or start referring to someone as your boyfriend or girlfriend. The connection you make with someone — otherwise known as the relationship you have with them — starts at first contact: the first date, the first message or the first time you hang

Just because you aren’t “Facebook official” doesn’t mean you don’t have a relationship. / INGRAM PUBLISHING

out. You can hook up with someone for months and call it (or not call it) whatever you want. But to say that what’s going on between you two at this point is not a relationship — of some kind — is just not true.

Perhaps not defining our relationships is our way of dodging responsibility. It’s like our disclaimer: If you get hurt on this ride you can’t sue me — after all, we weren’t technically together. But if there are still feelings

involved — and there usually are — does it really matter what you call it on paper or on Facebook? We owe it to each other to be responsible with each other’s feelings — because those feelings are there, regardless of

the label we affix to them. Sure, maybe you can just stop calling someone you’ve been on five dates with, whereas you actually have to dump someone you’re “officially” dating. But label or not, ending it with someone hurts that person. When you act unreliable, it causes pain. When you disappear and reappear repeatedly, it’s emotionally strenuous for the person you’re stringing along. If you’re not ready to respect people’s feelings, don’t date and stop sleeping with people. Perhaps you’re not ready to exclusively date one person, and that’s fine. But don’t fool yourself into thinking that not having a significant other means you’re not having relationships. When you interact with another human, that is a relationship, and you owe it to that person to be respectful.

What would Genghis Khan drink?

• 1 ounce Golia Vodka • 1/2 ounce Jagermeister • 1/2 ounce Drambuie • 3 dashes of Angostura bitters • Top with craft root beer (2-3 ounces) Stir lightly and garnish with a cherry.

On the rocks. We got the backstory on one of the smoothest vodkas around, fresh from Mongolia. Put down that bloody mary mix. Don’t even think about reaching for the cranberry juice. There’s a new vodka in town and it’s meant to be savored, straight up. “A lot of vodka is catered toward younger drinkers and women. There’s lowcal, flavored this or that — birthday cake and chocolate chip and whipped cream,” says David Solo-

mon of Golia Vodka. “We wanted a vodka that can be enjoyed the way vodka was intended — neat or on the rocks.” Golia, made in Mongolia, has been around for a while in the Asian country in a slightly different formulation and sold under a different name — one that “would have been hard to pronounce here,” Solomon says. He discovered it while visiting his friend Lee Cashell, a native of Wilmington, Del., who’d been working as a trader in Hong Kong when he decided to pop up to Mongolia and promptly fell in love with his tour guide, the daughter of a local government minister. Fast-forward about a

decade: Cashell, now married to the tour guide and running one of Mongolia’s largest conglomerates, extended an invite to his old pal Solomon from Philadelphia, who had founded a 20-store Toys “R” Us franchise and DVD vendingmachine company Redbox, among other successful commercial endeavors. They sat down to discuss business opportunities. “We were talking about things we could do together and I said, ‘This vodka we’re drinking is the best vodka I ever had in my life. Instead of importing, let’s export this incredible vodka,’” recalls Solomon. Golia, now available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and New York, is

Quoted

“We wanted a vodka that can be enjoyed the way vodka was intended — neat or on the rocks.” Solomon made with water from an underground well in Mongolia, where “the water is so clear you can literally see fish 50 feet below the surface,” Solomon says. “It’s untouched by man, untouched by chemicals.” Next comes the wheat, from a region known for its mineral-rich soil. The ingredients are distilled a minimum of six times through silver and platinum filters, giving Golia its smooth taste. (This writer, never a fan of vodka, was

pleasantly surprised by the complete lack of burn after even a sizeable sip.) Solomon and team are marketing Golia as a rugged and adventurous choice — it’s the official vodka of the Philadelphia Flyers and the New Jersey Devils, targeted toward “guys age 25 to 54,” he says, “and the women who love them.”

Sometimes it’s all about traditions. When October rolls around, we love to visit pumpkin patches and apple orchards for fresh air and fresh produce. Don’t have time to head out of the city? Check out the Harvest Festival at Reading Terminal Market, which has become its own autumn tradition. Now in its 13th year, the outdoor fest is a family-friendly event that closes down the streets to traffic in order to bring the country to the city, creating a farm in the middle of Philadelphia. And this farm boasts some of the celebrated market’s finest products. For one day the market will transform its exterior by way of seasonal decorations and a tractor filled with hay that will offer up rides around the market. “It was started by the Iovine brothers,” says Sarah Levitsky of Reading Terminal Market, referring to

Iovine Brothers Produce. “They wanted to showcase the market in the fall and create an event that was fun, seasonal and familyfriendly for people living in the city.” Even better, Levitsky adds, “It doesn’t cost a lot for families to enjoy.” In fact, it’s free to participate in the fall fun; you’ll have to fork over some cash to sample the food — which will be hard to resist. Along with the produce you’ll find caramel apples, pumpkin ice cream sundaes, butternut squash soup and apple cider for sale from local favorites like Bassetts Ice

According to Groh, some regulars swore never to return once it was renamed Joe’s Steaks + Soda Shop, claiming that he gave in to the “PC Police.� And they were true to their word — business was down immediately following the change. But others were more supportive. Back in August you guys had an eat-in where customers were showing up to support the name change. Were you surprised by the turnout? It was phenomenal, I was very happy. We’ve made new regular customers from those two weeks. Then there were others who couldn’t make it to the eat-in but came later to introduce themselves.

The health of a nation Re: ‘Tea party agenda has antebellum echoes’ (Metro, Oct. 8) Letter writer Rebeca Taub should awaken from her daze and the glare of political propaganda, ever pervasive in Obamatopia. The health care industrial complex is all about big money. And, Obamacare is how to make the struggling middle class pay for these overly bloated health care-related institutions and their ivory towers. Republicans and Democrats pandering to the rich with their lobbyists. Health care in United States is an overinflated, expensive mess. And, what better way to make it worse than to put it in the hands of the federal government, with its proven record of failure in everything it gets involved in. Obamacare’s “individual mandate” is nothing more than the 13th Amendment’s “involuntary servitude” in disguise. A salute to the 10th Amendment. Time to move to Kentucky. LEE KEITH, VIA EMAIL

Tea’d off about all the wrong things Re: ‘Dislike of taxes does not make one racist’ (Metro, Oct. 9) Letter writer Frank Dixon seems a little oversensitive. He starts by observing that a previous writer “forgot to follow through with the liberal playbook” when she didn’t call the Tea Party racist. He ends it with “TEA stands for Taxed Enough Already, which doesn’t seem to be very racist in its tone, does it?” Given that accusation, why does he devote such effort to it? Perhaps instead he could devote that effort to explaining why the Tea Party is excited the government is shut down and why it claims that the U.S. shouldn’t pay its obligations.

Imagine a rookie standing up and breaking down film for the rest of the team. It probably would never happen in an NFL meeting room, but that’s the position Earl Wolff could envision. The rookie safety has the book on Tampa quarterback Mike Glennon, whom he spent almost five years with at NC State. “I thought about it today, honestly,� Wolff said, of stepping up in film study. “Coaches haven’t asked me anything, most guys didn’t even know.� Case in point, when linebacker Mychal Kendricks was informed of Wolff’s relationship with Glennon: “OK, I didn’t even know that,� he said. Ask Wolff if he has an advantage this week, he doesn’t hesitate. “I think advantage to me, honestly. I just think it’s real difficult being a

rookie quarterback, no matter what the situation is because it’s the most difficult position to play,� he said. “I know what type of quarterback he is, in the back of my head, I know him well, real well, because I played with him every day.� Wolff considers Glennon a friend.

Nick Foles led the Eagles to a 23-21 win last December against Tampa. The win broke an eight-game losing streak and was their only win in the second half of 2012. Foles was the breakout star, throwing for 381 yards and two touchdowns, while leading the Eagles on a game-winning drive with 2:44 remaining. Don’t read too much into that, according to new coach Chip Kelly. “Nick kept a lot of drives alive with his feet in that game,� said Kelly. “But really, when we’re watching those games, we’re watching the defense really specifically, and that’s what we’re breaking down.� Tampa has the same defensive coordinator, Bill Sheridan, that it did last season.

McCoy: I’m not sorry for tweet NFL. The Eagles back slams Knowshon Moreno, but he praises Doug Martin.

Moreno has struggled despite being drafted well ahead of McCoy, who fell to the second round in 2009. / GETTY IMAGES

LeSean McCoy is standing by his tweet: Knowshon Moreno sucks. The running back took the podium yesterday outside the NovaCare Complex and began with a statement. “I just want to say I think Doug Martin is a heck of a running back,” McCoy said, with a smile. On Sunday, McCoy wrote, “Knowshon sucks,” in a reply tweet to an ESPN comment praising Moreno. McCoy said he didn’t regret what he wrote. “What I said is what I meant,” he said. MIKE GREGER

Net gains: Mason gets first victory NHL. The Flyers’ goaltending battle looks a little lopsided through four games, with Mason getting the better of Emery. Steve Mason is quietly emerging as the No. 1 goaltender for the Flyers. While it’s too early to hand him the job, Mason got his second straight start Tuesday and came out a winner. He turned away 33 of 34 shots, including a short-handed breakaway in the second period, in a 2-1 victory.

Mason made 33 saves Tuesday. GETTY IMAGES

“Part of the position is coming up big on key opportunities,” said Mason. “At the end of the first period, there were a couple saves there that needed to be made in order to

preserve the lead.” Mason improved to 1-2-0 with a .935 save percentage and 2.02 goalsagainst average in three starts. Ray Emery started the other game, a loss to Montreal, where he gave up four goals on 32 shots. “He played a good game. He made some big saves when we needed them,” said new coach Craig Berube, of Mason. “He had composure in net. He looked real solid. He was on top of things. He saw all the pucks. He was just solid and looked big in net.”

ADAM LEVITAN, LIVING THE FANTASY METRO’S FANTASY GURU BREAKS IT ALL DOWN.

NFL pickups Hit the fantasy waiver wire for these impact guys — if you still can. •

Zac Stacy, RB, Rams — Impressive in his ďŹ rst start in Week 5, Stacy did more than enough to run with the gig. Harry Douglas, WR, Falcons— Julio Jones is likely done for the rest of the season and Roddy White is out a few weeks. Douglas is the new No. 1. Garrett Graham, TE, Texans — Owen Daniels is out for eight weeks. So Graham is now an every-down TE and red-zone threat.

BREAKING INTO THE STASH HOUSE You know what you are at this point. You’re either a loaded team that can afford to use some bench spots on injured players, or you’re a guy that’s scuffling for each win. If you’re among the lucky ones that can comfortably look down the line, there are a lot of options out there for you. Some studs will be coming back and project to help us in crunch time. The sooner, the better. Everyone — and I mean everyone — needs help at running back these days. So even though Jonathan Stewart will return to a timeshare in Week 7 and has chronically damaged ankles, he’s someone to consider. If you can wait a little longer, Andre Brown (leg) is going to have a big role come Week 10. David Wilson is a disaster and Brandon Jacobs/Da’Rel Scott shouldn’t be in the NFL. The big prize comes back in Week 11, as Shane Vereen (wrist) should be ready. He’ll play the “joker� role in New England’s offense, making him a candidate for 10 carries and five catches. Keeping it on the up and up. Percy Harvin is the

The Phillies question we can’t stop asking MLB. Will Roy Halladay be back here in 2014? He could be an effective fifth starter for them. Speaking to members of the Phillies after the team lost Game 5 of the NLDS in 2011 was akin to chatting with victims pulled from a car crash. Just about every Phillie recounted what was arguably the most disappointing loss in Philadelphia playoff history over and over again. Ryan Madson pored over every detail. Raul Ibanez talked about how he missed a threerun homer that could have won the series. And, then there was Roy Halladay. While everyone else was looking

back, Doc could only see the future. According to former Phillies orthopedic Dr. Ian Duncan, Halladay had a question for the physicians. “Twenty minutes after the game, Halladay comes into the office and asks with this blank expression, ‘Hey guys, when is the date for opening day next season?’ That’s all the time it took to put that horrible game behind him.” There’s little doubt that the former Cy Young Award winner has forgotten about his miserable 2013 season. Halladay, who underwent shoulder surgery, lost a few miles off his fastball and his pinpoint control. Now he’s trying to figure out how to come back strong in 2014. One of the big questions for Ruben Amaro is, do you bring Halladay

Key dates The 2013 Phillies season in the books. Here’s what lies ahead. •

Oct. 31: Free agency begins at the end of the World Series, which goes on until Halloween.

Feb. 26: Phils first spring training game vs. Toronto

April 1: Regular-season opener against the Rangers in Dallas.

back? If so, how much? “That’s going to be intriguing,” an NL scout said. “What will the Phillies do? If it’s a purely incentive-laden deal, I bet Halladay does come back. If you sign him to be your fifth starter, it’ll be a clas-

sic low-risk, high-reward deal. Would you rather have this version of Halladay or John Lannan?” Considering how competitive Halladay is, it wouldn’t be surprising if he developed a new pitch in the offseason or made modifications. Then again, there might not be much to salvage. Halladay — he’ll turn 37 in May — is walking in the footsteps of Steve Carlton, who lost it completely a generation ago, yet wouldn’t retire. “It could go either way for Halladay,” the NL scout said. “He’s as tenacious and hard-working as they come. He could be a bargain for a team next year or an albatross. Will it be the Phillies? I wouldn’t be surprised.”
