Byko: How liberals squelch opposing points of view
JOURNALIST and TV pundit Kirsten Powers has a problem with her own people — liberals. The liberal columnist for USA Today doesn't have a problem with all liberals, just the subset she defines as the "illiberal left." As political discourse has become more coarse, she sees growing danger.

Byko: Should drug dealers be charged with homicide?
WHEN MICHAEL Untermeyer announced his candidacy for district attorney - something he has done before - he said something he had not said before, something attention-getting.

Giordano: Democrats have lost their focus on working class, says Johnny Doc
Everybody knows I love characters. I'm lucky because Philadelphia is the land of characters. You won't find people like Frank Rizzo, Joey Vento, Stu Bykofsky, or Patti LaBelle anywhere else. While I've had some big skirmishes with the leader of IBEW Local 98 over the years, I see Johnny Doc as one of the great Philadelphia characters.

Byko: With good intentions, Comic group dives into the toilet
THE ROAD to hell is paved with good intentions, says the proverb, and that might explain what led a Mummers comic club into the toilet on Sunday afternoon.

Giordano: Pro-Mumia appointee is an affront to law enforcement
WE JUST commemorated the 75th anniversary of the attacks by Japanese forces on American forces at Pearl Harbor. Sadly, on Dec. 9, we remembered another cowardly attack. Dec. 9, 1981, was the day Mumia Abu-Jamal assassinated Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner.

Byko: State prisons have a color bias
HERE'S A PROBLEM I hope you never have, because having the problem means a loved one is a "guest" of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.

Armstrong: At 82, ex-state Rep. Louise Bishop has some regrets
WHEN YOU'RE a public official, you can't just pocket a roll of bills that a lobbyist slips you, even if it's for a good cause.

Byko: Philly musician from Lebanon finds that peace is cooler than rock 'n' roll
LIKE A MILLION other kids, he wanted to grab his guitar, head to California, and become a famous rock and roll star.

Armstrong: It's not fair, but black politicians have to be better
AFRICAN American politicians are held to a higher standard. It's not fair, but it's the way it is. Black corporate executives and lawyers also have to work twice as hard to get the same respect and recognition as their peers.

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."
