Stories we’re chasing today at WHYY

    Happy hump day, Feeders! We’ll get you through to the other side of the week with court coverage, art news and plenty more.

    Tom MacDonald will be floating around City Hall where local ninth graders have been shadowing city employees. Mayor Nutter is expected to address them today.

    Dave Davies is talking today with John Street. You can also catch him on Radio Times at 10, where he’ll be talking about corruption in Philadelphia. Coincidence?

    Peter Crimmins will be at the National Constitution Center tonight for the kick-off of Donald Rumsfeld’s book tour. Today, he’ll swing by the Gallery where a dance troupe will perform in an empty storefront.

    Speaking of, Peter’s officially been dubbed our empty storefront correspondent for his penchant for finding pop-up galleries and performances in said vacant stores.

    Carolyn Beeler will be in court at noon where abortion doc Kermit Gosnell is supposed to tell the judge if he’s found himself a lawyer.

    Carolyn is also checking in with hospital about RSV, or Respiratory syncytial virus. CHOP says cases of the potentially fatal virus are increasing.

    OK, time to Feed the Feed with questions, comments and tips. Maybe you’ve got a question you want Peter to ask Rumsfeld? Use the Feed box to the right.
