Dr. William J. O'Brien III has a way with words and a way with women. During an October 2014 appointment, he offered a patient blue Xanax pills in exchange for oral sex, describing it as "blues for a blow. " Unfortunately for O'Brien, a former Democratic candidate for Bucks County coroner, the patient was an FBI agent secretly recording the conversation at the doctor's Bustleton office. Federal prosecutors say O'Brien, 51, also propositioned local strippers for office sex in exchange for narcotic painkillers.

PLASTIC Easter eggs in pastel colors hung in windows along Friendship Street in Mayfair yesterday afternoon, and children played tag along the curb.

They were fighting words, Philly-style. "What the f--- you looking at?" I'm looking at you, came the reply.
