Weekly Roundup from Philadelphia and Beyond

The Phillies' tailspin continues as they have been swept in a four-game series at home for the first time at Citizen's Bank Park. Donovan McNabb did an interview with GQ and bashed the Eagles and wouldn't accept blame for his failures in clutch moments, which is nothing new. Hurricane Danielle is way out at sea, but is now a category 4 storm, and will cause dangerous rip currents and tides at the Jersey Shore this weekend. A Delco prison screwed up royally and released two prisoners by accident. The Phillies were victims of an epic screw-up by umpire Scott Barry on Tuesday night's loss to the Astros in 16 innings. The head of the Philadelphia Housing Authority Carl Greene - the same Carl Greene who faced foreclosure on his home despite making $300,000 a year, has been suspended amid an FBI probe...big shock there.

Finally in national and international news

Tiger Woods reached a divorce settlement with former wife Elin Nordegren, reportedly for $100 million. Several Chilean miners trapped in a mine in Chile could be there until Christmas, but they haven't been told this. The epic China Traffic Jam continues, and as of right now stretches over 30 kilometers and has been regularly stretching over 100 kilometers. Glenn Beck will have a rally tomorrow in Washington D.C. at the Lincoln Memorial on the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech...coincidence?
