Wilma Theater remembers a celebrated playwright, NASA researchers find evidence of more planets

    Good morning, Feeders!

    As we slide into the holidays, we’ll have some related stories for you. But today, we’re looking at legal issues surrounding the Bill Conlin accusations and an interesting discovery by NASA.

    Lizz Fiedler will have more details on what’s next for Conlin, while Peter Crimmins heads to the Wilma Theater. There, the life and work of playwright Václav Havel will be celebrated. The late Czech leader died Sunday.
    Carolyn Beeler will talk to Villanova researchers working with NASA about their discovery of new planets outside our solar system. And on a different note, she’ll look at sleepwalking. It’s believed to be the cause of a South Jersey woman’s death earlier this week.

    Dave Davies will have a piece for us on Pennsylvania’s redistricting and what Republicans and Democrats have to say about it, while Emma Jacobs gives us an inside look at the reconstruction of a church dome.

    Coming up today are the next two parts of our holiday play by Chris Satullo and Tony Auth. It’s a “Whiteout Christmas.”
