Valley Forge Park Deer Cull Starting
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 10/31/11 9:15 am | updated: 10/31/11 9:15 am
Valley Forge Park is set to begin its second annual deer-culling operation, in which U.S. Department of Agriculture marksmen with rifles and night-vision goggles take aim at deer lured to baited sites. Citing safety concerns, the park won't disclose the dates of the shootings, only that they would occur between November and March. Last season, sharpshooters took out 600 deer, and the park aims for 500 this time.

A similar cull will take place in Lower Merion Township in... Read More
The Dream Team Version of Eagles Stampede the Cowboys
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA
started: 10/31/11 5:47 am | updated: 10/31/11 5:47 am
This is the Eagles team most Philadelphia football fans expected to see from the start of the season. On Sunday night the Birds ran a stampede over the top ranked Dallas defense on their way to a 34 to 7 blowout. Just a few weeks ago, many fans were convinced Andy Reid would be run out of town after the team's slow start. Now Andy is getting high praise for his perfect 13-0 record after bye weeks and the fact that the team is looking like it is beginning to gel as a real force in the... Read More

Valley Forge National Historical Park will conduct its second annual deer-culling operation. U.S. Department of Agriculture marksmen with rifles and night-vision goggles will reduce the herd by killing deer lured to baited sites.

Last year, sharpshooters killed 600 deer. This year the park's natural-resource department would like to kill 500.

Insurance experts estimate there are 130,000 deer-vehicle collisions annually in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Penn Doctor Regrets Fat Jokes
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA
started: 10/28/11 12:14 pm | updated: 10/28/11 12:14 pm
Have you heard the one about the University of Pennsylvania orthopedic surgeon who does fat jokes about overweight patients? True story. Doctor John Kelly writes a humor column and threw some jokes in that got some hot water with Penn and obesity bias advocates. Dr. Kelly intended no harm when he quipped, "You should worry about performing surgery on the supersized if there is a comma in your patient's body weight." Or if a patient "wears a wristwatch on his finger," or "has more chins than... Read More

  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 10/27/11 9:30 am | updated: 10/27/11 9:30 am
Occupy Wall Street, the nearly 6-week-old social protest in Manhattan has inspired campaigns, headlines and spoofs that often have nothing to do with income inequality or challenging corporate overlords: Occupy the NBA, Occupy The Bar, Occupy Sesame Street, and Occupy the Bathroom are just a few.

That meets with mixed feelings from the occupiers camping out in lower Manhattan. Some protesters are concerned that frivolous uses could dilute their serious message.
