The assistant director of the pharmacy at Mercy Catholic Medical Center's Fitzgerald Mercy Division, where mistakes caused the deaths of two patients last month, has been fired, and the pharmacy director has retired, hospital officials said yesterday. The firing and retirement came after the Darby, Delaware County, hospital's own investigators could not determine which pharmacist had prepared the intravenous solution given to a 5-month-old West Philadelphia baby who died Nov. 4. The county medical examiner ruled that the child, Tyhisha Smith, of Chestnut Street near 33rd, died after receiving a dose of muscle relaxant that was 15 times stronger than it should have been.

He'll be the first to admit that one of the main reasons why the Eagles failed to make the playoffs the last two seasons, and why Andy Reid's current mailing address is in Tornado Alley rather than still on the Main Line, is because of the organization's poor decisions in the 2010 and 2011 drafts and in '11 free agency.

John Stokes was a 29-year-old U.S. Department of the Interior fellow when, in 1979, at the behest of then-Gov. Brendan T.
