Among the area natives in Boston on Monday, when the attacks on the Boston Marathon rocked the nation, was Christopher Keelty, a Methacton graduate and now freelance writer living in New York City. Keelty was there to cheer on his girlfriend, Liz Corkum, a Skippack native who was running for her second time in the marathon. He recounted the experience recently on his personal blog, christopherkeetly.com. Keelty writes: I was at Massachusetts and Commonwealth Avenues, about six blocks or so from the finish line, when the explosions detonated. I was talking to a friend of Liz’s who had finished about an hour earlier, and we both heard the bombs. We wondered aloud what the noise might have been, but assumed it was something benign. From that …

Kids get caught drinking before their prom. Is that really a good enough reason to throw the book at them? Give them a criminal record? Mess up their college? Destroy their reputation?
I worked the late shift doing security for Methacton’s After-Prom Party this weekend. When I reported in, the buzz was a large number of kids didn’t make it to the prom because a parent rented a bus after allowing kids access to booze. I saw my kid at the party, and he told me about a few kids who were fall-down drunk. The cops clipped them at the prom. OK, alcohol consumption by teens is against the law.

The kids will get racked up with records that will hold them back, and the idiot Uptight Parents Brigade (UPB) will get to click their tongues. The local paper has been championing one such idiot who wants …
