A lawyer who works for the Philadelphia City Solicitor’s office gets caught on camera hanging out with a moron who sprays anti-Trump graffiti on a wall. The mayor suggests it’s a “dumb mistake.” The wine-sipping dilettante keeps his job. It’s disgusting and unfair. [Read More]
COMMENTARY: Villanova needs to find out if 'hate crime' report true COMMENTARY: Villanova needs to find out if 'hate crime' report true

I grew up with “Saturday Night Live.” When it debuted in 1975, I was a high school freshman and I looked a little bit like Emily Litella with her eyeglasses and unkempt hair. For that reason alone, she endeared herself to me. [Read More]
