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.

Shurmur indicated that the Eagles will not change much, so it doesn't sound as if the they will abandon playing with tempo or reintroduce the huddle. It could be Sam Bradford's final game in an Eagles uniform - the quarterback's future is unclear, and much depends on the next coach. But Bradford will try to finish what might be his best season.

The Inquirer story was based on the paper's own review of L&I records. The Inspector General's report concluded that "the most significant finding of the audit is that in 57 of 100 permits, inspectors improperly passed at least one inspection that should have been waived or failed.

TRENTON - Gov. Christie called Monday for loosening New Jersey's "extraordinarily strict and expansive gun control laws," endorsing a report he commissioned that said state regulations had placed unfair burdens on law-abiding residents who want to obtain, carry, and transport firearms. Christie released the report six months after he announced he had created a commission to review the state's gun laws. A day after he signed an executive order announcing the commission, Christie officially declared his candidacy for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.
