I GUESS THE LIBERAL press will be building it own "wailing wall" because of one reporter asking President Obama a question. All the reporters there chased him down to the Washington Monument, like the villagers going after Frankenstein's monster. I suppose they forgot how they hounded Richard Nixon, or Sam Donaldson yelling questions at Ronald Reagan, probably even as he was trying to go to the bathroom. They say Richard Nixon broke the law, but not as much as Obama has tried to destroy our Constitution.

A reporter for the liberal online news service OpEdNews filed suit Thursday in U.S. District Court alleging that Philadelphia police improperly targeted her for arrest during a demonstration against military recruiting at Franklin Mills Mall in 2009. The demonstration attracted counter-demonstrators, and the two groups were monitored by the Philadelphia Police Department's Civil Affairs Unit. Photographer and writer Cheryl Biren-Wright said she was taking photographs for the news service when police singled her out from among other media representatives, seized her camera, and placed her under arrest.

Murrey Marder, 93, a Washington Post reporter whose tenacious coverage of Joseph McCarthy's anti-communist crusade foreshadowed the senator's downfall and disgrace, died March 11 at the Washington Home hospice. The cause was complications from a stroke last month, said his nephew Steve Marder. Mr. Marder's career spanned nearly eight decades, including World War II service in the South Pacific as a Marine Corps combat correspondent. He joined the Washington Post in 1946 and distinguished himself on the so-called Red Beat, the sensational trials and hearings about the alleged communist infiltration of government, Hollywood, and other industries.

William J. "Bill" Storm, perhaps the greatest "house-end" reporter who ever worked in Philadelphia, died Saturday of a stroke. He was 76 and lived in Roxborough and in Daytona, Fla. Bill Storm, a police reporter for 36 years for the old Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, was a maestro of the "house-ender. " That is a reporter knocking on the door of a grief-stricken family to get facts that puts faces and feelings into a story about tragedy. He was aggressive, smart and fast, but didn't fit the public's stereotype of the probing reporter - he was a gentleman.

The Cheltenham School District says a hazing incident occurred last month in which members of the boys' soccer team were dangled by their underwear, a technique referred to as "ripping. " District spokeswoman Susan O'Grady said in a statement Tuesday that the district learned of the episode Sept. 23 and began an internal investigation. It also notified police. She described the hazing as "a forceful pulling and tearing of the victim's underwear to the point where it rips and allows the victim to be dangled by their underwear.

Registering to vote online in Pennsylvania is a no-go. Access to absentee ballots is limited, and if you have trouble speaking or reading English and need assistance voting, the help you need might be tough to find. The state received a mixed report card in a national study released Tuesday on best practices at the polls in 10 swing states. The study by Common Cause, a Washington-based good-government nonprofit, rated the state positively on training for poll workers, accommodating disabled voters, and recordkeeping.

"The NFL is coming, the NFL is coming. " That's the Paul Revere paraphrase they want to yell in Britain, and they want to yell it a lot more than three times a season. George Osborne, the country's treasury chief, told the Evening Standard last week that the British government will do whatever it takes to get a permanent NFL team in London, which is where the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons will play Sunday in a game that begins at 9:30 a.m. here and shortly after tea and crumpets at Wembley Stadium.

U.S. airline stocks rallied Thursday after several carriers reported healthy third-quarter profits, helped by strong bookings and declining jet-fuel prices. Ebola fears have not noticeably discouraged travel, airline executives said. "The demand environment remains solid, and strong revenue trends have continued," Southwest Airlines chief financial officer Tammy Romo said on an investor call. American Airlines, Southwest, and JetBlue Airways posted record profits for the three months ended Sept.

Randy Cuthbert has deep ties to the Central Bucks West football program. He starred for the Bucks in the mid-1980s and later coached the team. Because of that, Cuthbert was taken aback when he learned late Thursday afternoon that reports of hazing by C.B. West players, including the grabbing of private parts, had ended his alma mater's season. "It's just a shame that things like that are going on," said Cuthbert, now the coach at Emmaus, near Allentown. "Times have changed. I'm not sure what's causing that kind of behavior.

Pushed by alumni members, Pennsylvania State University's board of trustees has scheduled a special meeting next week to revisit the controversial report that concluded that former top administrators conspired to cover up child sex-abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky. Opponents of the report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh have long wanted the board to repudiate it, reopen the investigation, and perhaps wipe clean the blemish on the late football coach Joe Paterno's legacy, as well as on the careers of other former top administrators.

Since the Philadelphia Orchestra exited bankruptcy more than two years ago, several key financial indicators have brightened. Obligations associated with the orchestra's Chapter 11 settlement have been paid off, income from concerts is growing nicely, and annual fund-raising is improving more than nicely. "It was really a remarkable year," board chairman Richard B. Worley said at Monday's annual meeting of the Philadelphia Orchestra Association at the Kimmel Center. As part of its recovery plan, the orchestra established a "bridge/recovery/transformation" fund, and fans have come to the rescue.

Most of us did not see this coming. Most of us, in fact, thought the Dallas Cowboys were headed in reverse, a team primed to fall flat on its face after three straight .500 seasons that concluded with defeats in winner-takes-the-division games against each of its NFC East rivals. Quarterback Tony Romo, 34, was getting too old and coming off back surgery that kept him out of the regular-season finale against the Eagles last season. Jason Garrett was first in line only when he was standing among the NFL's mediocre head coaches.

As they flock to urban areas, members of the so-called millennial generation are discovering that they prefer to get around by public transit, biking, or walking instead of driving, according to a report promoted Wednesday at Rutgers University's Camden, New Brunswick, and Newark campuses. "It's basically just saying that transportation investment should be used to accommodate us millennials much more, because we're going to be the people using them in the future," said Rutgers-Camden freshman Samantha Buchner, 18, a member of New Jersey Public Interest Research Group, which held the campus news events.

WHILE WE STILL don't know a projected return date for 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams, who is recovering from spring shoulder surgery, coach Brett Brown said yesterday that the 2- to 4-month recovery period initially reported was not correct. "I heard somebody say 2 months. I don't know where that information came from. That's inaccurate," the coach told reporters yesterday after the Sixers' shootaround in Syracuse, N.Y., in preparation for the game against the New York Knicks.
