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.

In neighborhoods such as Fishtown and Northern Liberties, arts and artists stimulated big growth and new vitality. In battered Mantua - the heart of a new federal Promise Zone - it can seem as if the arts departed with the people. Now, a team of Drexel University faculty and students is offering a plan to support a growing number of artists as a way to lift an area pulverized by crime, poverty, and unemployment. "It's not art for art's sake, it's art for the sake of the good of the neighborhood," said Andrew Zitcer, an assistant teaching professor at Drexel who studies urban policy.

Baseball news from a somewhat unlikely source: Villanova football coach Andy Talley tweeted that former Wildcats star receiver Matt Szczur is being called up from triple-A Iowa to the Chicago Cubs. Besides Talley's tweet, multiple reports Saturday confirmed that the 25-year-old Lower Cape May grad is on his way to the bigs. Szczur, now an outfielder with speed (30 stolen bases with Iowa) and a good glove but weakish bat (.261) could make his major-league debut Sunday against the New York Mets at Citi Field.

Judges have twice posed the same question to federal prosecutors seeking to detain six former Philadelphia narcotics officers as they await trial on corruption charges: Is there any evidence to suggest that the ex-members of the Narcotics Field Unit have attempted to harass or threaten those who speak out against them? Prosecutors have offered little to suggest as much in court - most recently Thursday, as U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno affirmed a lower court's order releasing four of the former officers on house arrest.

LATE LAST MONTH, with his attempts to get the Eagles to restructure his contract going nowhere, Evan Mathis had pretty much decided he was going to hold out of training camp. "Probably won't see you on the 25th," he said. Even as recently as Wednesday, Drew Rosenhaus, the agent who represents the 32-year-old All-Pro left guard, indicated that Mathis still was considering being a NovaCare no-show yesterday. But there he was, reporting for the start of two-a-days with the rest of the team.
