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.

As a lawyer, Dennis Weldon has to make sense of tortuous legal papers. But a year ago, the Plumstead Township resident opened a nine-page document that left him flummoxed. It was his child's report card from Gayman Elementary School in the Central Bucks School District. Gone was the traditional A-B-C-D-F report from the teacher. Instead, parents were sent to their computers to click open a nine-page digital document with row after row of learning standards and success indicators for specific reading or math skills.

Police in Bucks County are investigating an alleged road-rage incident Friday at Veterans Highway and New Falls Road in Bristol Township. The complainant told police that he first spotted the shooter, a white man with short, light-brown hair driving a small white sedan, on Veterans just before 11 a.m., the township Police Department said in a news release. The motorist said he was heading north in a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck when the other driver tried to pass him on the shoulder, but could not. When both drivers neared the intersection of New Falls Road, the complainant said, he heard a "pinging" sound, looked in his rearview mirror, and saw the other motorist holding a black handgun, police said.
