RE THE July 20 op-ed by Fatimah Ali: It's clear she doesn't get Glenn Beck. Mr. Beck purposely close Aug. 28, the anniversary of the '63 March on Washington, for his rally at the Lincoln Memorial. If the author watched Mr. Beck's program on a regular basis, she'd know that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is highly revered by Glenn Beck. And, for the record, Mr. Obama isn't clearing up anyone's mess. He is, along with his administration, actually making everything far worse. We must all pray we can survive until he's mercifully voted out of office in two years.

Talk-radio host Glenn Beck took a shot at Philadelphia on the air Tuesday, calling the area around Independence Hall "the killing streets" and proclaiming that the city was "not a place you want to be. " The remarks irked city officials. Mayor Nutter's spokesman told The Inquirer that Beck was suffering from a case of "verb-arrhea. " Philadelphia Police Lt. Ray Evers called Beck "misinformed. " The historic district, Evers said, "is actually one of the safest parts of the city, if not the country, with the number of law enforcement.

Suing Glenn Beck . . . . . . is fast becoming a national pastime. The 50-year-old former Fox News analyst, who maintains his creds as an independent thinker by dissing, insulting, and generally alienating everyone else, is being sued for defamation by Abdulrahman Alharbi , 20, a Saudi Arabian student injured in the Boston Marathon attack last April. Filed in U.S. District Court in Boston, Alharbi's suit claims that on his webcast Blaze , Beck maligned the student by identifying him as "an active participant" in the attack in addition to the Tsarnaev brothers.

RE GLENN Beck's fit after his show was dumped here: I'm thoroughly convinced of just how much of a horse's behind he truly is. How blowhards like him and Rush Limbaugh have such huge followings shakes my faith in the intelligence of the American people. Jeffrey C. Branch, Philadelphia

SURPRISE! Fatimah Ali attacks Glenn Beck. As she points out, class divisions in our country are widening, our economy is in a downward spiral and there's anger and turmoil. Who does she blame? Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, the tea party and oh, yeah, the favorite black person's scapegoat, George Bush. But all this is going on while your guy Obama is supposedly running the show. As a white man, unprotected by civil-rights law, I'm calling for our elected officials to step up and fight for the civil rights of white people, too!

RESTORING honor? Speak for yourself! As I watched news updates of Glenn Beck's preposterous "Restoring Honor" rally this weekend, I was outraged. The U.S. has its problems to be sure, but a lack of honor is not one of them. Don't include me in that honor restoration program, because I have not lost mine and neither has my country. Despite political divisions and seemingly intractable problems, our Constitution is as strong as it has ever been - and the principles of our Founding Fathers will not steer us wrong, especially now when we need them most.

GLENN BECK is moving to Philly. Kind of. In the wake of the news that Rush Limbaugh will be returning to 1210 WPHT, I've learned exclusively that Beck will give his Internet-only TheBlaze Radio Network a Philadelphia feel by adding local news and weather twice per hour and traffic four times per hour, provided by partnerships with local news and information services. Philly is the first market for the localized expansion, but I hear Beck wants to move to more markets.

WATCH OUT, Philadelphia. You are not safe downtown. There are gunmen hiding in the Liberty Bell, and that Betsy Ross impersonator might take you for everything you've got. At least, that's the fantasy world inhabited by right-wing radio host Glenn Beck, who declared on his show earlier this week that "Philadelphia sucks. " It's easy to laugh at Glenn Beck (boy, is it easy!). However, it's less amusing to think how his rhetoric might affect how others view Philadelphia. After all, Beck's program is carried by 22 affiliates across the state.

A few words about who "we" is. "This is a moment," said Glenn Beck three months ago on his radio program, "... that I think we 'reclaim' the civil rights movement. It has been so distorted and so turned upside down. ... We are on the right side of history. We are on the side of individual freedoms and liberties and damn it, we will reclaim the civil rights moment. We will take that movement, because we were the people that did it in the first place!" Beck was promoting his "Restoring Honor" rally, held this weekend at the Lincoln Memorial, 47 years to the day after the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. famously spoke there.

IT'S APPARENT from the dripping sarcasm that Elmer Smith holds a very low opinion of Glenn Beck and his religiously conservative views, particularly as opposed to those of Martin Luther King Jr., whose views were iterated some 47 years ago at the same location in Washington. I don't care for Beck either. However, it seems to me that Beck and King are pretty much "peas from the same pod. " Both represent vocal minorities (King the black and underprivileged, Beck the white and religiously conservative)

DEPENDING HOW you count it, Meatless Monday, endorsed by City Council this fall, is a movement that's been around for a decade - or a century. In 2003, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for a Livable Future put its official stamp on Meatless Mondays - simply eating meat-free on that day to avoid the known health liabilities of meat and get more mouth-time for fruits and veggies. But there were also "Meatless Mondays" back in World War I, launched by the United States Food Administration to conserve resources.

"An arrest in the Boston Marathon bombing has been made. " - CNN, et al., before any arrest By Steve Young With technology continuing to ramp up our ability to transmit news at breakneck speed, along with the public's insatiable need to know something ASAP, the media have been painfully susceptible to rapid-fire misfiring in the race for "breaking news" and ratings. Makes one wonder what might have been if today's media had been around a few years earlier. Jonestown More of a Picnic Than a Punishment, CNN, Nov. 18, 1978 - John King reports that, according to a source close to the situation, "the Peoples Temple group in Guyana, thought to be a treacherous cult, has been proven to be just a well-meaning paradise, as leader Jim Jones has just distributed what I'm told is delicious, specially-prepared, grape-flavored Kool-Aid.

Could Sgt. Scott Moore , that sweet, smooth-pated Marine, possibly have imagined that his fantasy movie star babe would actually say yes to a date? That'd be Black Swan star Mila Kunis , who has accepted Moore's invitation to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball on Nov. 18 in Greenville, N.C. Moore taped his YouTube invite in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, where he is serving with the Third Battalion Second Marines. "Hi, Mila, I just want to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the Marine Corps Ball with yours truly," he said.

Keith Olbermann's still preaching liberal gloom and doom to the choir, but the church pews have emptied. The commentator's Countdown audience, in the show's new home on the little Current cable network, is about one-third of what he averaged on MSNBC. But one man's decline can be another's stunning success. Since Olbermann arrived June 20, the audience weeknights at 8 p.m. on Current has increased fifteenfold, moving the network, founded six years ago by Democratic stalwarts Al Gore and Joel Hyatt, from total obscurity into cable's lower middle class.

I achieved a personal goal a week ago. But to the extent he had a similar aspiration, David Carr did not. We both appeared as panelists on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher . The program is televised in front of a live audience in Hollywood and rebroadcast over and over on subsequent days. The crowd is boisterous, the host can be acerbic, and the subject matter includes anything currently in the public realm. Which explains my goal in working without my radio show's customary seven-second delay: Create no YouTube moments.

CNN anchor Don Lemon , who spent several years as a reporter and weekend anchor at Philly's NBC10, writes in his new book, Transparent , that he is a gay American man. "Today I chose to step out on faith and begin openly living my own truth," Lemon said Monday in a statement. The journo tells the New York Times that his vocation demands that he be frank with his audience. "I abhor hypocrisy," he says. Us, too. "I think if you're going to be in the business of news, and telling people the truth, of trying to shed light in dark places, then you've got to be honest.

Glenn Beck is leaving his Fox News talk show, says Business Insider. Beck wants to "transition away later this year," according to his website The Blaze. A joint Beck/Fox news release says his production company, Mercury Radio Arts, will work with Fox News to develop and produce TV projects and digital content. For quite a while, The Glenn Beck Program was the third-highest-rated show in all cable news, behind two other Fox stalwarts, Bill O'Reilly 's O'Reilly Factor and Sean Hannity 's Hannity . But rumors said Fox was eagerly inviting Beck to transition, in light of ratings that (while still big for cable)
