If buildings could see, City Hall's tower would be the eyes of the nation. Now with the April 28 reopening of its observation deck, tourists can once again view a snapshot of our country's development. For five weeks, the tower was closed as U.S. troops fought in Iraq to oust a dictator, liberate a people, and create an opening for democracy. That war took place far away, in the cradle of civilization. Here, in the cradle of liberty, an orange alert had curtailed access to many areas, including the tower.
TRAVEL
January 29, 2012
Inquirer readers were on the move this holiday season, beginning with Thanksgiving adventures and continuing into the new year. Some journeyed as far as Africa and the Middle East, while others stayed in this hemisphere and still others just stepped out their front doors, looking for what they usually miss as they go about their daily lives. One thing all did: They had a camera to capture the moment. And they entered the Winter Travel Photo Contest. Today we offer you the finalists, as chosen by a three-judge panel of Inquirer editors, in six categories: Buildings and Architecture; Animals; Holiday Sights; What I Did on My Winter Vacation; Landscapes; and Sunrise/Sunset.

So a new home is being planned for the Philadelphia Orchestra. Well, that's fine. And the orchestra's directors are talking of renovating the Academy of Music. Well, with all due respect to the Grand Old Lady of Locust Street, I think she needs much more than a renovation. The place may have been adequate as a concert hall where listening is more important than viewing, but as an opera house it leaves much to be desired. Aside from being outdated and uncomfortable, the biggest problem is the great number of "obstructed view" seats.

When taking snapshots at cramped family gatherings, have you ever wished you could move backward three steps to squeeze in more relatives sitting at the ends of the couch? While soaking in some exotic scenery, are you frustrated because your still camera can capture only a small portion of the grand view? If you answered in the affirmative, you're a likely customer for the new breed of "panorama" still cameras using conventional 35mm film but capturing a different view of life - a picture that's wider and squat, more movielike as opposed to TV-ish.

WHILE I feel very sorry for the woman who got raped at gunpoint by four men, I can see where the judge would think the case was more a robbery than a rape. The woman showed up to be paid by one man to have sex with him. He not only does not pay her, he brings in three other men, and they, too, don't pay her. When did prostitution become legal in Philadelphia? I am a black woman who sees two parts to a "rape" in this situation. Even though this woman was forcibly violated by four men, would it have been OK if they all paid her?

IT IS SURPRISING that the Daily News would essentially re-print an article written for American Prospect magazine, which even you admitted is a liberal-leaning publication, as cavalierly as your publication in the Feb. 21 paper of "Santorum's Mortgage Raises Interest" by Will Bunch. Not only does Mr. Bunch's article drip with partisan accusations, but it belies a lack of intimate knowledge of the inner-workings of leadership PACs and political campaigns. That Mr. Santorum's PAC spent money at Starbucks, Ben and Jerry's, and the supermarket in Leesburg, Va., is not only unsurprising, but it is to be expected.

By Patrick J. Morgan and Pedro A. Ramos There's great post-convention buzz in the city right now. But what did one important audience - the next generation of voters - see and experience? What were they thinking as they witnessed this unusual presidential election year? Providing young people with a voice is essential to building a strong democracy into the future. It is also important in creating a culture of civic engagement in Philadelphia and building a community of problem-solvers who are committed to shaping their city.

It had been more than 19 years since I took a boat ride on the Schuylkill, and this time the accommodations were much better than they were in 1997. The view was different, as well, but I'll get to that in a minute. That May 1997 barge trip from the Market Street bridge to the now-closed Schuylkill Power Plant in Grays Ferry was brief, but the point was that both sides of the river were untapped resources that needed to be tapped. There wasn't much going on then. In fact, the east bank was, in the words of one longtime resident, "a wasteland.

It's time to pick a new president, and review that familiar question: Are we better off than eight years ago? Democrats brag about low inflation, cheap energy, cheap loans (if you can get one), and low unemployment. Republicans say too many people don't work, investment isn't profitable enough, and the economy is growing too slowly. There's no more basic measure than jobs. So I asked the boss of one of the nation's biggest employers - Steve Jones, chief executive of the newly consolidated Conshohocken- and Santa Ana, Calif.-based AlliedUniversal - how hiring has changed since President Obama was elected amid the 2008 financial meltdown.

Life in America today is arguably more anxiety-inducing than it's been for any generation since those that fought off the Depression and fascism. Even during the superheated political conflicts of the 1960s, people could get mad at each other, smash a window or a face, and still wind up with a decent-paying job and employer-provided health care. Tom Hayden and his activist generation didn't have to worry about getting trapped in a 1099 economy with no real hope of retirement savings outside of Social Security.

Heidi and Tom Guy lean back on their white Ikea sectional and survey the land in front of their raised, modern Barnegat Light house. Twenty feet from their toes, grassy dunes continue uninterrupted to walkways that lead to white beaches framed by the Atlantic Ocean. A northern breeze sweeps through a panorama of windows. The quiet is deafening. "It's the nicest when the sun comes up in the morning," says Heidi, as Tom, her husband of 28 years, agrees. Barnegat Light, known for its historic lighthouse "Old Barney," has long been a special place for the couple.

IN "LOST in Democrats' Fantasy Land," (July 29) Christine Flowers peddles a dark, stark view of politics that leaves little room for the complexities of real life. Women and people of color know better than most what it's like to have our rights trampled, our safety threatened, and even our lives endangered by politicians and policies that fail to recognize our humanity. We can't afford to live with rose-colored glasses, especially when the Hyde Amendment and other bans on insurance coverage for abortion are used to deny women the care they need and push families into poverty.

On a bright July day, the vista evokes gasps from visitors to this property in Lumberville, Bucks County. To the southeast is the Delaware River, which on this particular morning is blue and clear. From the driveway, on 10-foot-high stilts surrounded by trees, you see a dwelling that looks like a giraffe standing tall on thin legs. Modest in appearance, the structure is made of stucco and cedar, and seems to blend in with its woody surroundings. It belongs to Monika Hemmers and Stephen Heimann of Chestnut Hill, who built the house to replace a cottage they bought in 2009 that was flooded by successive storms that saw the Delaware overran its banks.

CLEVELAND - As delegates gathered behind miles of high-security fences for the first day of the Republican National Convention, hundreds of protesters took to the streets, shadowed by hundreds of police officers. But despite a few moments of tension downtown as far left and right rubbed elbows, demonstrations remained peaceful. Two marches Monday were the largest the city has seen this week. Meanwhile, on the banks of the Cuyahoga River, a group called "America First" held an hours-long rally in support of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

  Of all the iconic foods one could indulge in at the Shore - hot boardwalk donuts, fresh seafood, pizza, saltwater taffy - corned beef and pastrami probably doesn't make the obvious list. But that's likely because the new Margate branch of Cherry Hill's classic deli, the Kibitz Room, is still only a few weeks old. Neil Parish's Shore place serves up the same quality deli fare that has made the original such a standby, from hearty soups with handmade kreplach stuffed with ground deli meats to the deep-flavored comfort of tender brisket platters, fresh-baked knishes, and, of course, those overstuffed sandwiches.

It comes into view in stages - street-side, front-on, poolside, and, just steps away, oceanside: A sprawling, three-story Nantucket-style home with dark-shingled exterior that seems to be planted exactly where it belongs. A kind of ageless, timeless testament to the best of seashore life. "We wanted a happy house," Marcy Dash Friedman says of the beachfront Margate, N.J., dwelling she and husband Brian, a real estate investor, bought in 2002. "I fell in love with the site," explains Marcy Friedman, a Cherry Hill interior designer.
