Philly hopes to land 2016 DNC The Democratic National Committee announced over the weekend that Philadelphia and ﬁve other cities are ﬁnalist to host the 2016 convention. Mayor Michael Nutter made the city’s pitch oﬃcial on Friday, citing the upcoming Catholic World Meeting of Families scheduled for fall 2015 and the Forbes Under-30 summit to be held this October. “Philadelphia’s thriving millennial population presents a great opportunity for the Democratic National Committee to galvanize a group that was critical to the successful election of President Obama in both 2008 and 2012,” Nutter’s letter states. The DNC said the other ﬁve options at present are New York City; Birmingham, Alabama; Phoenix, Arizona; and Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio.

Msgr. Joseph Logrip, 67, placed on leave in 2011, was fully reinstated to his duties by Archbishop William Chaput, the Archdiocese announced Sunday. Logrip was last assigned to Saint Stanislaus Parish and Saint Mary Manor in Lansdale and will return to duties there. Logrip was suspended after a 2011 grand jury report by the Philadelphia D.A.’s oﬃce found widespread sexual abuse in the clergy, but charges were never ﬁled against him. METRO Cases resolved
Out of 25 priest suspensions in 2011, this resolution is the last case to be resolved, the Archdiocese said.

Public displays of affection allowed Free to exchange vows. The 26th Pride Parade was the ﬁrst ever to include a mass marriage ceremony. Flamboyant celebrations at the Philadelphia Pride Parade took on a serious, almost somber tone just after 1 p.m., as 13 couples stood on Market Street at Independence Square Park and exchanged the vows of marriage. “I love you. You are my closest friend. Will you let me share my life and all that I am with you?” the couples repeated as crowds cheered. The mass marriages at the Pride Parade were made possible by a federal judge’s May decision legalizing same-sex marriage in Pennsylvania. Philadelphia Common Pleas Court judges Ann Butchart and Daniel Anders performed the weddings.
How we got here
“We’ve been together for over nine years; it’s almost like we’ve been married from the start. And ﬁnally, today, it’s legal; it’s ﬁnally on paper.”
“Just a few years ago, I didn’t think it was going to happen in my lifetime. ... When I heard, I think I cried for like 20 minutes, tears of joy.”
Ray Purnell Purnell, 30, left, and Tonee Robinson, 52, together for nine years
Melissa Bailey Jenna Imes, 28, left, and Bailey, 39, together for three years
“Beyond the very important legal protections, it’s changing relationships,” Anders said of the new law. “I had a couple that had been together 33 years. ... I asked them to hold hands during the exchanging of the vows and then seal their vows with
a kiss. Afterwards, as they were making toasts, they said ... that they had never shown a public display of affection, even holding hands in front of their family friends, let alone in public. What they said is that it felt right and it felt good.”
In June 2013, the Supreme Court ruled gay marriage legal — expanding marriage rights for the ﬁrst time since a 1967 decision legalizing interracial marriage. In May, a Philadelphia federal judge ordered same-sex marriage legalized in Pennsylvania.

A part-time aide at Upper Frederick Elementary School in New Hanover, Montgomery County, served pet treats to dozens of fourth-grade students Thursday and may have told them the food was cookies or crackers. Reuters reported on Saturday that it was unclear how many children ate the treats and why they were served. The aide was placed on leave. In a statement, Boyertown Schools Superinten-
dent Richard Faidley said the product wasn’t harmful, “with the exception for those individuals with specific food allergies.” Beth Smith, a dietitian at CHOP, said if there was a serious allergy concern, “It would have been an issue at time of consumption,” she said. “But it’s always a concern for parents. … You want to know who’s giving them what and you want to be sure it’s people food and not dog food.” TOMMY ROWAN

HOLD ON TO YOUR TOKENS When will SEPTA stop using tokens? LAMONT MCMANUS
SEPTA has a contract with Xerox to implement a new contactless fare instrument system. Pilot testing of the system will start at the end of this year. Once we determine that the pilot is a success, the public launch will begin. We will encourage our customers to move to the new fare instruments, and passengers using a SEPTA smartcard with stored value will travel on transit at the discounted token and transfer fare rates. After a significant percentage of our passengers have electronic fare cards in hand, we will start to reduce the availability and sale of tokens. We will continue to accept tokens until the new fare system is fully tested and installed on all surface vehicles and all the turnstiles and fare-dispensing machines have been replaced on the Broad Street and MarketFrankford Lines. Why did SEPTA remove the 60-foot articulated buses from most Route 14 weekend trips, which now have severely overcrowded 40-foot buses with many standees? NIKOLA SIZGORICH
SEPTA’s fleet of articulated buses is aging. In order to assure reliability on Route 14 weekend service, articulated vehicles are presently assigned to weekend trips with the highest ridership. The good news is that a new fleet of articulated buses should begin to arrive shortly to replace the older ones. Once they
“We will give our customers plenty of advanced notice regarding when they will no longer be able to use tokens to pay their fare.” arrive, we plan to restore Route 14 service to 100% articulated bus operation. The Broad Street line runs ﬁne between Walnut and Olney, but between Olney and Fern Rock TC, the trains take a long time to reach Fern Rock. The Broad Street line operates Local, Express and Ridge Spur Service. During the weekdays the Local and Express trains originate out of Fern Rock Station every 3 minutes during peak hours. The scheduled running time for a local train from Walnut Locust to Fern Rock is 23 minutes which includes 4 minutes running time from Olney to Fern Rock. As northbound trains leave Olney Station they must all merge through a series of complex switches and eight “traffic” signals which govern the safe movement of trains back into Fern Rock Station in anticipation for their next southbound trip out of Fern Rock 3 minutes after their arrival. The train may stop momentarily based on the displayed signal as it leaves Olney while waiting for trains ahead to depart the station. Metro does not endorse the opinions of the author.

Bergdahl describes his harsh treatment, solitary confinement to officials Recovery. He is being treated at the U.S. Army hospital in Landstuhl, Germany. U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl suffered harsh treatment at the hands of his Taliban captors including long periods of solitary confinement, according to U.S. military officials who also said the soldier is struggling emotionally and has not yet called his parents. One U.S. military official told Reuters the 28-year-old is physically well enough to travel back to the United States for treatment. He is suffering from disorders affecting his skin and gums that could be expected after his five-year captivity,
the official said, confirming a report in The New York Times. The newspaper reported on Sunday that Bergdahl told medical officials in Germany the Taliban kept him in a metal cage in the dark for weeks after he tried to escape. The soldier is struggling with emotional issues and has not contacted his parents although he is free to do so at any time, the official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
Bergdahl’s father receives death threats The father of Bowe Bergdahl has received emailed death threats that authorities are investigating, an Idaho police chief said on Saturday. The ﬁrst of the death
threats sent to Bob Bergdahl at his home near Hailey, Idaho, was received on Wednesday, the same day the city canceled a planned rally celebrating the release of his son, Hailey Police Chief Jeﬀ Gunter said. REUTERS
Kerry: Freed Taliban would target U.S. at ‘enormous risk’
U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers said he thought at least three of the ﬁve prisoners swapped for Bergdahl would return to the battleﬁeld.

If the ﬁve Taliban inmates released from Guantanamo Bay prison in exchange for a captive American soldier rejoined the ﬁght against the United States, they would do so at great risk, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday. “I’m not telling you they don’t have some ability at some point to go back and get involved,”
Kerry said in an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union” program. “But they also have the ability to get killed doing that. “These guys pick a ﬁght with us, in the future or now or at any time, at enormous risk.” REUTERS

Manly. Does the pill change what women want in a partner? Women who take oral contraceptives desire different traits in an imaginary man than women not on the pill, according to a small study in Italy. Past research has found that when women view images of potential male partners during the most fertile time of their menstrual cycle, they tend to prefer the guys with more
masculine traits. Participants in this study rated their preference for male characteristics like athleticism, social class and shoulder width. The women who were not on the pill preferred men with more masculine characteristics, both physical and psychological, the study found.

A new way of evaluating tumors may soon help cancer patients identify the underlying genetic link to their disease — and the best possible treatment — all in a single test. Researchers are set to begin clinical trials using a more comprehensive testing method that looks for all of the known genes that may be active in a tumor. The new method could guide patients to the right drug earlier, potentially replacing current tests known as companion diagnostics that only look for
a specific biological trait or “biomarker.” The presence of a biomarker can predict whether a new class of drugs called targeted therapies will work on particular tumors. Results of these broader tests could even be used to quickly identify which patients might benefit from experimental drugs being tested in clinical trials. U.S. health officials see it as the future direction of cancer diagnostics. REUTERS Quoted
“We really are moving away from this one drug, one biomarker, one companion diagnostic.” Dr. Richard Pazdur, U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s oncology chief
