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.

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.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams on Friday blamed a political enemy - Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane - for a news report that he is under federal investigation. The article, published in The Inquirer on Friday, reported that a federal grand jury had subpoenaed Williams' campaign-finance records to determine if he misspent any donations on personal matters. The newspaper attributed its story to two sources familiar with the investigation. The sources said Williams was the subject of a joint FBI and IRS investigation, and that Williams' campaign committee had turned over financial records within the last two weeks.

Moments after a judge delayed the possible demolition of First African Baptist Church's 109-year-old building, two opposing groups formed around lawyers Thursday outside Courtroom 446 at City Hall. Parishioners of the state's oldest black Baptist church are split over the building at 16th and Christian Streets. Preserve its history, some say. Keep it, others insist, and the church is financially doomed. An elderly woman had one request: "Let us pray," she said. In the middle of the fourth-floor hallway, 19 people - including the lawyers - held hands in a circle.

A rail-safety expert recommended Monday that Pennsylvania step up track inspections and press railroads to increase the number of electronic trackside monitors to reduce the risk of oil-train derailments. Allan M. Zarembski, a University of Delaware expert commissioned by Gov. Wolf to explore responses to a massive increase in oil-train traffic, made 27 recommendations on ways the state and railroads can reduce the risk of a catastrophic derailment. Zarembski acknowledged that the state has limited leverage over federally regulated railroads, and that the U.S. Department of Transportation and the industry have already moved to upgrade safety standards, including new railcar rules.

COULD CHASE UTLEY be gone before the Phillies return from their 10-day, three-city road trip on Sunday night? Has he already played in his last game at Citizens Bank Park in red pinstripes? The San Francisco Giants have made a trade offer to acquire Utley, according to reports from the San Francisco Chronicle and MLB.com. Both reported that Giants general manager Bobby Evans confirmed that an offer had been made to the Phillies.

Even as Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane prepares to talk for the first time with reporters about the criminal charges against her, one well-known former prosecutor is offering to replace her temporarily if she steps down. Kane said Monday that she would hold a news conference Wednesday afternoon in Harrisburg. She has said through her lawyer and a spokesman that she is not guilty and has no plans to quit. But that hasn't stopped talk of replacing her. If she quit, naming an interim attorney general would be up to Gov. Wolf, who wants her out, and on Monday, Philadelphia's Democratic Party chairman, U.S. Rep. Robert Brady, said a would-be replacement contacted him last week: former Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne M. Abraham.
