Busy blogger day

  • Ray Murphy at YPP looks at a recent West Philly proposal to tax businesses in the University City District. Among other interesting arguments, he points out that if subsections of the city can levy taxes to provide desired safety and other improvements, the result will only be more skewing of the differences between poor and prosperous parts of the city. That can't be the right way to go.

  • PoliticsPhilly links to the Sunday Inquirer story about Tom Knox, who plans to quit his current job at the end of the month to work on the mayoral race full time.

  • Above Average Jane is disgusted by Santorum's attempts to distance himself from K-street (or Land of Lobbyists) and contrasts some previous reports with current claims.

  • Albert takes a look at Lynn Swann's campaign page and makes disparaging remarks.

  • America's Hometown notices an argument for gay marriage by a staunch conservative (this issue suddenly relevent locally with the late introduction of some anti-gay-marriage legislation in Harrisburg, by leadership eager to offset the liberal look of some other bills they may pass).

  • And finally, not political but of pop-culture interest, Philadelphia Will Do notes that UPN and WB are going to merge to form a new network "CW" starting in the fall -- I guess that the Buffy/Angel migration might have foreshadowed this...
