  • Philadelphia's own ‘Man About Town’ Tobe Gill dies, services Saturday
    He was a friend to everyone, regardless, Philadelphia’s own “Man About Town” and for years the beloved “Vice Mayor,” a title that had the blessings of everyone at City Hall and beyond, from one administration to another, an unelected public servant always apt to burst into any downtown business unannounced — even the owner’s office — to check on things.

BREAKING NEWS

  • PERRY/Electing a statue
    Wednesday, March 22, 2017 6:00 PM
    If you visit the U.S. Capitol you’ve likely been through National Statuary Hall and seen the collection of statues given by each state to represent itself in the collection. Beginning in 1864, Congress authorized each state to send two statues and in 1933 expanded the location for these statues throughout the Capitol.

    There has been a discussion about replacing the statues from Mississippi. The Overby Center for Southern Journalism and Politics at the University of Mississippi hosted a panel discussion earlier this month.
  • HARKINS/Finding welfare fraud
    Wednesday, March 22, 2017 6:00 PM
    We all agree welfare should be reserved for the truly needy and recognize the injustice of fraud and waste that steals resources intended for the poor.  It’s the same outrage we feel over the widow robbed at gunpoint or the foster child bullied out of his favorite toy. It is this sense of fair play that inspired me to introduce legislation this session aimed at assuring our welfare programs are not being taken advantage of by fraudsters and con artists.  
  • LOWRY/A 140-character flaw
    Wednesday, March 22, 2017 6:00 PM
    The Trump administration is in the throes of one of the greatest self-inflicted distractions of the modern presidency.

    The latest chapter comes from James Comey in his highly anticipated congressional testimony. The FBI director said that he has no information to support President Donald Trump’s infamous weekend tweets alleging he was wiretapped by President Barack Obama during the campaign. This was treated as a bombshell, although what would have been truly surprising is if he said Trump’s allegations had a sound factual basis.

    “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.                                                                                    —Jeremiah 17:7-8
