No one can deny that Joe Hubris is as liberal as the hills.  He believes that liberalism is the best hope for all of us.  That being said, he hates the degree that the city of Philadelphia intrudes into the lives of his fellow residents.  Now, couple that with hubris and you get the latest loss for the city and its economic health.
Leave it to the Phillies to be denied their Title, not by the other team, but by the first ppd in WS history.  I arrived at game 5 of the World Series at "the Bank" to a steady drizzle of rain.  The game, however, would start on time.  My friend Chris and I made our way up to Harry the K's bar high above the field, at the base of the Jumbo-tron.  The stories-high TV screen blocked a lot of the rain that was coming down. I'm not saying that things didn't get worse when they called it later, but it was perfectly predicted in the weather report and frankly, not much worse than it had been. My complaint is that they should have just postponed the game from the beginning.  That would have been the smart/fair thing to do.  As it is, making them play in that soup blunted Philly's Number-one advantage: Cole Hamels on the mound. 
After the free Springsteen concert on the Parkway yesterday, I stopped by a volunteer's table on Fairmount and after raiding his button pile, I asked him how things were going.  He told me he was in charge of 2 wards and that in those 2 wards, they had 4000 new registers over the previous 5 weeks.  He had personally registered 120 people in 12 hours over Friday and Saturday.  Those numbers simply cannot be ignored--despite the fact that they aren't counted among surveys of likely voters.  If Pennsylvania was ever in play it is not now.  I was thrilled to see Bruce (for free!) but was even more so to see him in Ohio today. Comments to Joe Hubris.
Since Joe Hubris has been bush-free, he feels 100% better.  He can think more clearly.  His hair has stopped falling out.  He's not bloated all the time.  He's making healthier decisions at mealtime.   Most importantly, He's been able to get off the oxy's.
When: January 20, 2009 (Inauguration Day Night) Where: RUBA Club (414 Green Street) For the first time since 1980, no Bush will hold high office in America.  That's worthy of celebration.
