Driver Is A Real Tree Hugger

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

So, I had to wake up extra early (6:30am) today because Kyle had his first day of lacrosse camp. The camp was being held at William Penn Charter School, which is a half-hour’s drive away. We took Roosevelt Boulevard (Route 1) to and from the camp. It’s a highly-congested road that sees a lot of [...]

It’s Official: The Animals Are Taking Over

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Remember yesterday’s post about the man who was attacked by a pack of savages? Well, apparently mob attacks are now all the rage here in Philadelphia. This attack carried over from an incident at South Philadelphia High School – a school steeped in violence. Violence that has been ignored. According to police, a 12-year-old girl [...]

If You Still Need A Reason To Arm Yourself

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

This should cement the decision for you – at least if you live in this town. Mr. LaVelle should have beaten these animals to death, and he damned sure better go gun shopping – sooner rather than later. Note also: some people are saying this attack wasn’t racially motivated. Uh-huh.

Michael Vick – aka Mr. Glass – broke his right hand in today’s game against the Giants. *giggle* Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has left the game against the Giants with a broken right hand.

Friends Don’t Let Friends Speak Drunk

The Liberty Medal Ceremony is a big deal in Philadelphia. The annual ceremony recognizes individuals who help bring liberty to others around the world, and it’s a huge media event here. Usually, the recipient is introduced by someone famous, or someone with local ties. Last night’s presenter, Kim Delaney, is both famous and local. She [...]

Quite an appropriate post for Labor Day. A teachers’ strike is looming in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The archdiocese and the union representing its high school teachers will resume negotiations Monday. An archdiocese spokeswoman says the two sides were having a “good dialogue” during Sunday’s session. But the teachers’ union president says the sides are [...]

The Cheesesteak Defense

Friday, August 26th, 2011

This is a genuine Philadelphia cheesesteak – from Geno’s, of course. It’s a very special sandwich that most of us here will protect with our very lives. It’s common for a patron stand up, grip the roll and say, “This is my cheesesteak! There are many like it, but this one is mine!” So, it’s [...]
