    We’ve been feeding the Feed for a week now, and it’s been a blast.  Hope you’ve had as much fun as we have.  Feed the Feed to let us know how we’re doing?  Meanwhile, here’s our plan for today:

    Susan Phillips will be reporting on a new study by the Pew Charitable Trusts report on Pennsylvania’s efforts to reduce prison populations.

    Another report out of Rutgers Business School details employment numbers across the region.  Tom MacDonald will give you an update on that, along with a look at the State Supreme Court decision to overturn Philadelphia City Council’s ban on public comment.

    Carolyn Beeler will attend a press conference on what Philadelphia police are calling the biggest heroin bust in the city’s history.  She’ll also follow up on the suspension of dozens of Abington Health employees for refusing to get a flu shot.

    And Peter Crimmins catches up with a Poet in residence holding an afternoon of poetry and music and Northeast High School.

    That’s all for now.
