A bad day for Nutter, and for Philadelphia

Big news -- or rather, the lack of progress -- on two fronts today:
  • The smoking ban vote fell through, after a couple of Council folks got nervous at the last minute and a tie appeared likely. In theory it's just been put on hold, but Street and Nutter will have a lot of work (and hopefully not too many amendments) ahead of them to get the strayed lambs back into the fold...

  • Meanwhile, the ethics legislation actually went to a vote and was defeated. On this one, Street and his allies were in the opposition column. I guess a bad pay-to-play reputation doesn't bother him...
Well, back to the drawing board!
