Political petulance

Slow news day, so reporters are apparently filling in with coverage of political childishness in Philadelphia. Chief in that department is this article about Nutter and Street, which adds nothing to the stories from earlier in the week except a sense of playground stand-off, as councilman and mayor each say, "well, it's *his* fault; so THERE!" with regard to the current poor prospects for a smoking ban. Meanwhile a quick snip catches Rizzo, Jr., throwing class issues into the face of planners worried about the negative effects of redesigning the Franklin Parkway to allow for car races to be held downtown -- he reassures them that attendees would be more like Paul Newman than Daisy Duke. [I'll take non-sequiturs for $200, Alex!]
