Small changes in stories already covered recently:
- An Inquirer piece cites many locals who think it's too soon to return control of the Philadelphia school system to the city's hands.
- Yesterday's Fattah exploratory commission news yields two stories today fleshing out his intentions, now rated as "very likely to run for mayor." In part he wants to check that he can fundraise beyond pesky federal restrictions, which also raises questions about how the new City Council ordinances apply to exploring-but-not-yet-declared candidates...
- A couple more legislators decide not to take unvouchered expenses as a way to an early raise.
- More discussion of planned base closings; now the commission is questioning whether the proposed closings would even save the amount of money that planners are projecting.
