ISSUE | MAYORAL PICK Call that decisive? The newspaper that couldn't decide between Tom Corbett and Tom Wolf makes a decision about the mayor's race ("Williams, narrowly," May 3)? Hard to believe when the headline proclaiming the mayoral endorsement says, in effect, just barely. Makes you wonder about something being rotten in the state of The Inquirer.
ALMOST two years ago, President Obama announced that he was tightening the rules under which the CIA carries out drone strikes against suspected terrorists in Pakistan, Yemen and other countries. Afterward, civilian casualties did, in fact, fall significantly, according to independent monitoring groups.
