Editorial: Sour grapes

Republicans just can’t get over the fact that a rookie U.S. senator with no executive experience but tons of charisma cleaned the clock of a Vietnam War hero and veteran U.S. senator a quarter-century his senior to become the leader of the free world.

Community event was a great success


Editorial: The $905,000 question

Is the Arlene Ackerman scandal over? Not if citizens give a darn.


Editorial: Never again

Sunday is bound to be emotionally tough for most people who love America. We lost our innocence and sense of security 10 years ago. Things have never been the same as they were before the terrorist attacks and never will.

Fly the flag to remember 9/11


Editorial: Shame on Perzel

It’s been a tough time in the area lately. First there was the Great Quake of ’11 and the Great Superintendent Scandal of ’11, both of which took place on the same day last week. Then there was Great Irene’s megadose of wind, rain and power failures, complete with powerful but necessary evacuation warnings from Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey but nary a word from The Invisible Man of Pennsylvania, Gov. Tom Corbett. Then, just this Tuesday, the Philadelphia Eagles gave their star dog abuser, Michael Vick, a six-year extension on his contract. All in all, a lot of disturbing news for man and beast alike.

Keep the pressure on the DROP sham


Editorial: Money for nothing

You have to hand it to Arlene Ackerman. She sure knows how to make a deal. No, the superintendent of the School District of Philadelphia was not responsible for the earthquake that rattled the East Coast one day after she was ousted from her cushy job, but she certainly did shake loose a whole lot of bucks for her departure.

Let there be light to help honor our fallen heroes


Let me guess … you're an Elvis impersonator

This week marks the 34th year since The King's death. And the army of Presley clones just keeps growing and growing.
