Giordano: Elites are too easy on Kenney pal Lloyd, too tough on Mummers
IN THE SPIRIT of the Christmas season, I'd like to help Mayor Kenney out of the dilemma he faces in deciding what to do in the case of Duncan Lloyd, an assistant city solicitor, captured on surveillance footage in an anti-Trump vandalism incident on a new grocery store building in Chestnut Hill. Kenney has said of this activity: "It's still working out. It's certainly hateful and inappropriate and unacceptable . . . But people make mistakes, and it's a dumb mistake."



He got his license back, no thanks to police
WHEN WE LEFT Shawn Gill in early October, he was stranded in his Warminster home, courtesy of the Philadelphia Police Department.



Ubinas: Want murderers off the streets? Let's do this together
I'M GOING to tell you a story about a Philadelphia mother on a mission to find her son's killer. Actually, I'm going to tell you yet another story about yet another Philly mom seeking justice, because I could share one every week and still not get to all of them.



Giordano: Some signs Trump is backing away from campaign promises
EVEN THOUGH Hillary Clinton did not make history in the recent election, another woman did. Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump's campaign manager, became the first woman to be victorious as a campaign manager in a presidential race. Conway is a South Jersey gal - born in Camden - and she shared some of the secrets to her success in an interview on Wednesday on my radio show.



Armstrong: Gwen Ifill was an inspiration to many, including me
BESIDES POLITICS, I learned other things from PBS anchor Gwen Ifill: Good journalism prevails over all else. And I needed to stop leaving my purse on the floor.

Giordano: 'Dignity gap' helped give Trump the presidency
I GUESS IT IS COMFORTING to say that Donald Trump won the presidency because of a wide swath of racist haters across America. I know that the support for Trump has its roots in much deeper and complicated issues, and former Sen. Rick Santorum had a lot to do with the issues that brought Trump victory.



Vietnam vets' last battle: Getting dead Philly hero the medal he earned
WHEN LURAL LEE Blevins III was killed in Vietnam, heroically covering the withdrawal of his buddies, he should not have been there.



Byko: Trump's win is revenge of straight, white males
THE UNLIKELY election of real estate magnate/reality show star Donald Trump can be seen as the revenge of the straight white male. Also angry, as they - I? - are usually described.



Ubiñas: What's that noise? A bomb of a reality check
WHAT JUST happened? I understand being angry and disappointed with the Washington establishment, being distrustful and disgusted with the "elite" media that couldn't be any more detached from the American public it purports to represent.
