Rest in peace my friend, Marvin Barrish
Those of us who take good care of our houses and yards know that a single rundown property on an otherwise tidy street can turn a neighborhood upside down with worry in no time at all.
For a few days earlier this week, we thought the Easter Bunny would have to wear earmuffs and arrive on a pair of skis this Sunday.
The pandemonium that erupted at City Council when Mayor Nutter tried to deliver his annual budget message last week gave us all a front-row view of political theater at its rawest. The script went this way:
Has everyone governing air travel gone berserk?
Leave the Pennypack train trestle alone
Hey Council, finalize a zoning code
Dump patronage jobs to keep taxes low
