    Good morning, Feeders and happy Friday! Moving into the long weekend, we’ll have coverage of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival and WHYY’s Connections Festival, as well as the latest on Monsignor William Lynn’s grand jury testimony about clergy abuse.

    Lynn’s testimony has been made public, and Lizz Fiedler will bring us some of the details. Lizz is also checking in on the process of removing potentially dangerous dogs from a home, now that it’s been determined a Philadelphia woman died as a result of an attack by her dogs.

    Aaron Moselle will have more information for us on new guidelines for immigrant bail hearings and what the regulations aim to accomplish.
