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.

SHARED PROSPERITY Philadelphia - the city's plan to tackle its staggeringly deep poverty rate - has made important strides in its first year of existence, but there's no time for celebration yet. "The challenge is that we're still a desperately poor city," said Eva Gladstein, executive director of the Mayor's Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity, which oversees the program. "Poverty effects 397,000 people - 123,000 of whom are children - in Philadelphia. " In Shared Prosperity's first progress report, released yesterday at the Uniting to Fight Poverty Summit at Community College of Philadelphia, the success of community partnerships, the greater availability of resources for the poor and increased grant funding were heralded as successes.

THE HONCHOS at CBS3 might want to get their checkbook out. It seems that back on Sept. 29, station anchorman Chris May looked into the teleprompter and reported that a school police supervisor at a city charter school was fired over allegations that he sexually abused a boy. "Howard Rubin is the suspect," May intoned, as Rubin's picture flashed on the screen. "He is accused in the sexual abuse of an underage male student. " Now, here's why CBS3's story may cost the station big bucks in a lawsuit filed Friday: Rubin not only was not fired, but he also has not been accused of, nor arrested for, sexually abusing anyone.

Don't look now, but the 1950s are breaking out in the NFL. Talk all you want about parity, but nearly one-third of the league's 32 teams - 10 of 32 - have yet to win a Super Bowl. That might change in what is shaping up to be a season of revivals. More than halfway through the 2014 schedule, four of the NFL's eight divisions are led by teams that have never hoisted a Lombardi Trophy - the Eagles, Browns, Lions, and Cardinals. That's interesting because, if you're willing to conflate the new and original Browns, those four combined to win 10 of the 14 NFL titles between 1947 and 1960.

Pennsylvania State University's president will review the Freeh report on the Jerry Sandusky scandal that concluded former top administrators conspired to cover up child sex-abuse allegations to preserve the university's reputation, the school announced Saturday. The university said president Eric J. Barron's decision was made "in response to recent calls for an examination. " Barron told trustees Friday he would conduct the review, the university said. E-mails released last week showed regular correspondence between the NCAA and former FBI Director Louis Freeh, who led the Sandusky investigation commissioned and paid for by the university.

PHOENIX - A week ago, Ruben Amaro Jr. answered the phone inside his office at Citizens Bank Park and spoke candidly about his team's need to rebuild and the mindset a general manager has to have during that process. "We're keeping our thoughts and eyes open and not leaving anything off the table," Amaro said at the time. "We'll talk about any player. There are no untouchables. " So when a report surfaced yesterday, a week after Amaro's comments, that the New York Mets phoned their National League rivals and asked about trading for Jimmy Rollins, it wasn't too surprising.

Report Card OFFENSE: B The Eagles couldn't run the ball for two weeks, their quarterbacks tossed 12 interceptions, they had more turnovers than their opponents, they suffered mass casualties on the offensive line - and despite all that they're fourth in the NFL in yards per game and points. Defense and special teams have provided some of those points, but the Eagles offense, under Chip Kelly's guidance, could trip over itself for a half and still find a way to move up and down the field.

Voters were lined up when the polls opened at 7 a.m. Tuesday at the Tredyffrin Township municipal building. Another unexpected rush came at 11:15 a.m., before the typical lunch-hour crowd. An hour later, someone shouted "We hit 500!" - nearly 25 percent of the precinct's registered voters. Poll workers cheered. For a midterm election with polls suggesting few tight races, experts had predicted a light turnout on Tuesday. As the polls closed, figures were still trickling in. But across the region, officials and poll workers were surprised by the legions who chose to vote.
