Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was unharmed despite being the victim of an armed robbery and carjacking last Sunday in Philadelphia. “Bernard's fine,” his agent Martin Magid told The Baltimore Sun on Tuesday. “The police are investigating the incident. Any questions about it should be forwarded to the Philadelphia Police Department. It's not the best situation, but he's good.” Magid said that Pierce, an Ardmore native who played his college football at Temple, was visiting friends in a “nice area” early Sunday evening when the incident occurred.

Every one of the Rolling Stones' 50 years has etched a line into Keith Richards' face, making it certainly one of the most battle-scarred visages in rock -- which makes it oh-so-incredibly cool when he breaks into that scraggly smile, the one that says, "I've survived, and I've prospered. Howzaboutyou?" Tuesday night at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center, the Stones' 50 & Counting tour rolled into the City of Brotherly Love for a party that celebrated all sorts of things: survival, perseverance, genius and glory undimmed.

Monday's NCAA men's Division I lacrosse final in Philadelphia was an exciting matchup of one of the sport's most storied teams, Syracuse, against Duke, an underdog that came back from a losing record early in the season (and a 5-0 deficit at the start of the championship game) to win it all. There was only one thing missing: about 13,000 people. The NCAA started holding men's Division I finals in NFL stadiums in 2003, rotating among Baltimore, Philadelphia and Foxborough, Mass. During that time, the average attendance for the final match on Memorial Day was 41,678.

The time has come for the NCAA to return the championship weekend to smaller stadiums and venues. Seventh-seeded Duke's 16-10 rout of top-seeded Syracuse in Monday's tournament final at Lincoln Financial Field was marred by an announced attendance of 28,224 - the smallest crowd to watch a title game since championship weekend was moved to professional football stadiums for the 2003 campaign and since 2002.

Privately, a lot of fans are picking unseeded Cornell to win the NCAA Division I lacrosse championship here this weekend - but publicly, they urge caution because the 2013 regular season has been so unpredictable. But there is no need for concern. Going into the semifinals Saturday, the Big Red will win the title because of its work ethic and the way Cornell has blown out opponents in the first two rounds. The Big Red also has the top player in college lacrosse - attackman Rob Pannell - and another scoring machine - attackman Steve Mock.

To those who support "choice" at all costs: Read the grand jury report on Kermit Gosnell. He is the Philadelphia abortion doctor awaiting a verdict in his trial, where he is accused of murdering four babies allegedly born alive and killing 41-year-old refugee Karnamaya Mongar. The charges represent only a fraction of the horrors that went on at the Women's Medical Society clinic, according to the report, where hundreds of children died by "snipping" - his term for sticking scissors into the back of a baby's neck and cutting its spinal cord - and where women were routinely butchered in late-term abortions by untrained medical staff and doped up according to how much they could pay. Here are some lowlights from the report: •"A nineteen-year-old girl was held for several hours after Gosnell punctured her uterus.

The Philadelphia Orchestra has had its share of troubles over the years, including an embarrassing brush with bankruptcy, but things sure sound like they are looking up, way up, these days. Financial matters now seem more stable, and the hiring of a young dynamo from Montreal, Yannick Nezet-Seguin, as music director (this is his inaugural season) has sent a decidedly positive jolt into the organization. That electricity could be easily felt Wednesday night when the Philadelphians visited the Kennedy Center for a concert presented by the Washington Performing Arts Society . I'm still feeling a little tingly from the exposure.

The murder trial of Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortion provider, entered its fifth week today riding a peculiar media firestorm. The focus of much attention in recent days was not on Dr. Gosnell, who is charged in the death of seven babies and an adult patient who died of an overdose, but on a claim that the trial is getting modest coverage in the national media - allegedly because of a liberal bias. Whether sufficient coverage has been given to the trial we would leave for others to judge.
