Herbert Lipson, chairman of Metrocorp, owner of Philadelphia and Boston Magazines, recalled. That intensity carried on after Mr. Fonzi left Philadelphia.

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.

SAN DIEGO - Six months ago, one Phillies icon took the hand of another and raised it in the air in celebration on a sunny, summer afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt, the best player in team history, walked onto the field and congratulated Jimmy Rollins after the shortstop laced a single to rightfield off Edwin Jackson for the 2,235th hit of his career. Rollins passed Schmidt that day, becoming the hit king for a franchise that's been doing business for 132 years.

TRENTON - A state legislative committee's investigation into last year's lane closures at the George Washington Bridge was a cover to "take down" Gov. Christie and boost the political career of its cochairman, GOP lawmakers charged in a new report Monday. Democrats on the New Jersey Legislative Select Committee on Investigation, led by Assemblyman John S. Wisniewski (D., Middlesex), "repeatedly misled the public; manipulated media coverage via false leads, seemingly unlawful leaks, and baseless claims; charged taxpayers millions of dollars to promote political fiction; and accomplished nothing meaningful for the public good," the 119-page report says.

Know any good young quarterbacks who can't run? The NFL could use a few. Deep into this 2014 season, two facts about the league's quarterbacks can't be ignored. First, and most problematic for a league whose signal-callers are its most prominent stars: The best of them are graying faster than a mid-January afternoon. Peyton Manning is 38. Tom Brady is 37. Drew Brees is 35. That's a lot of passing yards, record-book entries, and merchandising dollars headed for the exit. Not too far behind in total birthdays are Phillip Rivers (32)

A more-than-yearlong effort by New Jersey lawmakers to determine who was ultimately responsible for the September 2013 lane closures at the George Washington Bridge - and why they happened - has not yielded evidence that Gov. Christie knew of or was involved in the closures. And that won't change as long as the legislative committee investigating the incident is unable to interview certain witnesses amid an ongoing investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office, according to an interim report from the panel that stops short of clearing the governor.

The legislative committee investigating the lane closures at the George Washington Bridge has compiled a report of its findings. It comes nine months after Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, a law firm retained by Gov. Christie's office, released its own report. Here is a comparison of some of the reports' key findings, including about Christie's role. Key individuals Gibson Dunn report : "Our investigation found that David Wildstein (then of the Port Authority) and Bridget Kelly (then one of the deputy chiefs of staff in the governor's office)

In a development that could affect Penn State, the Big Ten has informed its member schools that one of its 10 bowl-eligible teams could be shut out of the postseason, ESPN.com reported Thursday. The website said it obtained a copy of the memo, which explains that the agreement with the Orange Bowl may create a situation in which the Big Ten could be one bowl spot short. While it does not seem likely that Penn State (6-6) would be affected because of the number of fans who traditionally accompany the team to any bowl game, the Nittany Lions and Illinois (6-6)

The neighbors on Haworth Street had suspected for months that something was wrong. They almost never saw Prane Paciunas, the elderly woman who lived in the immaculate house on the corner, and when they did manage to speak with her, she didn't seem herself. She'd lost weight. Her pantry was bare. And her live-in caretaker, Jean Dombrowski, had stopped letting people inside, neighbors say. Between February and November of this year, Paciunas' neighbors and fellow parishioners say, they tried to seek help for her - notifying the Philadelphia Corp.

The Phillies denied a report Wednesday that David Montgomery, on medical leave from his role as team president, will not return to that position. The team insisted it has not made an official resolution regarding Montgomery, although the franchise's future may not include him as the top decision maker. The 42-word statement, issued at 5:47 p.m., came more than eight hours after the initial report by WIP-FM (94.1). "Of foremost concern to this organization is David Montgomery's full recovery from his surgery this past spring," the statement said.

Lost in the furor over President Obama's executive action on immigration are recent trends that run counter to the common perception that illegal immigration is on a ceaseless climb. Nationwide, the population of unauthorized immigrants actually leveled off from 2009 to 2012 and remains stable at around 11.2 million, the Pew Research Center, a Washington group, said in a report last week. Among other findings in the report, titled "Unauthorized Immigrant Totals" : The number of people in the United States illegally fell in 14 states, rose in seven, and in the remainder showed no statistically significant change.

While the NFL might be America's game, it can occasionally be as incomprehensible as cricket. There's the coded lingo quarterbacks shout at the line of scrimmage. There's the league's complex salary cap. There's Dan Snyder. But for me the league's least understandable element is something that ought to be simple to explain but never really has been: Why does the richest sports entity in the universe have the lowest average salary of any of the four major professional sports leagues?
