Giordano: We need a law to end policy of Sanctuary Cities
THE FIRST anniversary of Pope Francis' visit to Philadelphia garnered the expected headlines noting his charisma and the impact he had on some people during his visit. I see him as holy, charismatic and kind.



Ubinas: Mother on mission to find son's killer
LISA ESPINOSA'S youngest son, Raymond Pantoja, was killed April 10 outside a nightclub at B Street and Allegheny Avenue in Kensington.



Baer: Lots of he said/she said and dancing
They didn't even need music. No, sir. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump danced and danced the night away and made 2016's first presidential debate a mirror of their campaigns.



It was ladies night at the debate
As the TV was warming up for the presidential debate, my mind was carried to previous great male/female face-offs.



Byko: How Pa. targets Kenney's lawless Sanctuary City
HOUSE BILL 1885 is Jim Kenney's living nightmare. Sponsored by Northeast Rep. Martina White, the bill would allow the city to be sued for personal injury or property damage caused by someone here illegally. It could pass as early as next week and go to the Senate, which has a similar bill on the griddle.

Byko: Republicans are racist? Sure, but so are Democrats
"RACIST. SEXIST. Homophobic. Xenophobic. Islamophobic." That was Hillary Clinton's droning description of half of the Donald Trump cohort. She later apologized for saying "half" and revised it, presumably downward, but who really knows?



Giordano: High school kids getting the wrong message from Colin Kaepernick
Colin Kaepernick is on his way to becoming the 2016 version of Rosa Parks. That's the analysis of NAACP president Cornell William Brooks. Brooks told USA Today, "It's a lofty name, but it's not a stretch."
