Today's Stories

Well, I have to figure the whole SEPTA strike (and subsequent regional-rail torching) will render readership a wee-bit less than normal. So, here's a link to today's Metro column ...
Name one good reason why Domingo Ferreira’s jail-cell suicide wasn’t fitting justice for what his daughter Charleeni suffered at his, and allegedly his evil wife’s, hands.

Bonus: Here's a story I did for a magazine in Atlantic City about next week's World Series of Poker final table, featuring Phil Ivey, who learned to play underage at the Tropicana, Taj Mahal and other places; and Eric Buchman, who continues to regularly play at the Borgata. Buchman's second from the chip-stack top; Ivey's third from bottom. (It's a PDF online; my story appears on pages 18 and 19, which are actually 34-36 in print.)
