Opening Arguments

Do as I say . . .

Oops, Part 1:

Earlier this month, when Mayor Street announced an aggressive new city plan to go after tax scofflaws, he warned: "We will spare no one."

He could have started by looking in the mirror.

Until last week, Street was $4,798.99 in arrears on his property-tax bills for two North Philadelphia properties. He paid up Thursday, shortly after a Daily News reporter asked him about the debt.

Oops, Part 2:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. Sep 24, 2007 (AP)

The executive director of the state's Alcoholic Beverage Control faces a drunken driving charge after he was arrested during a traffic stop.

Chris Lilly was pulled over Saturday on U.S. 27 outside Nicholasville because his Ford Explorer was missing a headlight, and because he was weaving and driving slowly, police said.

Regarding Mayor Street:
He's got more skeletons in HIS closet that Walgreens has in their "seasonal aisle".
(it's even worse than Indy in some ways)

Now you know one of several reasons WHY I (sadly) left Philly...!
