#1 Sometimes reporters deserve what they get. If a few more reporters got the crap knocked out of themselves we just might have some responsible reporting going on.

#3 This guy is a bad example, I agree. The press get away with saying anything they want and confrontational hiding behind the 1st Ammendment. Even lawyers has some standards of conduct.

#4 Son uses one of those near invisible digital recorders... Or a application on his powerbook.
One advantage of digital is you can do a quick voice to text translation (yeah its awful but helps edit and formating...)

#5 "the last 20 years being hounded by members of the media and being attacked by Republicans..."

Yeah sure, he has anger managment issues and has shown a lack of personal restraint from time to time but jeeesh...don't blame him...clearly it's the Republicans fault.

#6 When I read the head live I thought it referred to the Palistinian Authority government [sic]... imagine my surprise.....

#7 Well, Philadelphia politics is sort of like Palestinian politics without the bomb belts and weapons. :)

#8 I originally thought this was a story about the Palestinian Authority not Pennsylvania's Rendell.

Didn't really matter. Another "Water's wet" story...

#9 It's either assault, or illegal search and seizure. What's wrong with you guys? A little weak in your convictions?
