City of Philadelphia vs. SEPTA

 

City officials want more say in the SEPTA decision-making process. The city has gone as far as threatening to seize the subways by not renewing its lease with SEPTA. What are the specific parameters of the city’s contract with SEPTA? What is the likelihood of service being interrupted?

Phillies off to another slow start

 

The Philadelphia Phillies are off to yet another slow start. There were high expectations for the team coming into the season, but the start of the season could be an indication the team may not be as good as many experts believed. An article exploring the Phillies recent history of slow-starts and fast-finishes would be interesting.
