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.

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.

MIKE SCHMIDT famously said that Philadelphia is the only city, where you can experience the thrill of victory and the agony of reading about it the next day. Add San Francisco to that list. The day after his team snapped a two-game losing streak with a win over the Eagles, Niners coach Jim Harbaugh spent more time addressing a report that his players want him out than answering questions about the game. On Sunday night, Hall of Fame cornerback-turned-analyst Deion Sanders said on "NFL Gameday" that, according to unnamed sources, Harbaugh and his players are "not on the same page.

"Back then, the only social media was when you bought drinks for the writers after the game," cracked Larry Shenk, who was 25 years old and in his first year as the Phillies' public-relations director in 1964. "It was a different time, as far as the media covering the team. " The Phillies' infamous fold, which started 50 years ago on Sept.

Where will the money come from to fix L&I? That's the question that won't be answered in a blue-ribbon commission's special report to Mayor Nutter scheduled for public release Thursday. The report calls for breaking Philadelphia's much-criticized Department of Licenses and Inspections into two new units, creating a Fire Prevention Bureau, and hiring more staff. The result of a 10-month examination of the department by a 22-member panel, the report also says L&I is underfunded and overworked - and suggests that staffers be given raises to bring their salaries in line with those in other cities.

There's no way Roger Goodell should be able to survive this because incompetent liars do not make good leaders, and the AP report depicts the NFL commissioner as both without saying it. Goodell was adamant during an interview on CBS This Morning that no one in the NFL...
