Occupiers arrested overnight, Bucks County Playhouse raises the curtains

    Good morning, Feeders!

    While you anxiously await the mid-week holiday, Carolyn Beeler will keep you busy with a story on the science of fireworks.

    Meanwhile, Tom MacDonald is down the Shore assessing weekend storm damage. Many in South Jersey are still without power.
    Emma Jacobs will catch us up on the weekend Occupy event. About two dozen protesters were arrested in Philadelphia overnight. She’ll also look into what’s happening at the Sunoco refinery in Philadelphia.

    The Buck County Playhouse will celebrate its opening night this evening, and Peter Crimmins will take us behind the scenes. The curtains will rise tonight following great efforts to bring the once-neglected theater back to life.

    And Phil Gregory will check in with New Jersey Democrats, who’ve been called by Gov. Chris Christie into a special session.
