29, age of man charged with leading police out in Bethel on a wild chase that ended with him striking another car before fleeing on foot. He was captured not far away.

Call me a Phanatic: A look at the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fan.

The Donovan McNabb Show continues unabated down in Washington. And to think we left all this behind. Yesterday McNabb was fending off reports that he was not as familiar with the Redskins’ playbook as he should be. Donovan called the reports “hilarious.” No word yet from Coach Mike Shanahan.


I Don’t Get It: Hundreds protested outside court yesterday seeking freedom for convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. Why I have no idea.

The evidence plainly shows he’s guilty.


Today’s Upper: Kudos to state Rep. Bill Adolph, R-165, of Springfield.

Yesterday he was named majority chairman of the powerful House Appropriations Committee.


Quote Box: “Using a public position to shield family members from criminal prosecution and then making false statements to investigators about those acts is an inexcusable breach of the public trust.”
