But this post merely serves two purposes: To let you see Nelson Diaz saying he wants some marijuana and Milton Street talk about the city’s problem with kangaroos messing with trash cans. You’re welcome.

This Is My Favorite Rainbow Picture Ever

Earlier this week, after dropping Louden off at school, I saw a rainbow off in the West Philly distance. See? Well, I posted it on various social-media sites and, lo and behold, coworker John Abbott sent one back that was so awesome I just had to do a post on it. Check it out below:

Philly Mayoral Candidate Milton Street Tells Me How He Would Have Handled MOVE

Imagine my delight when WHYY news-boss Chris Satullo asked me to moderate the Milton Street portion of Wednesday’s mayoral forum that was co-sponsored by business group PENJERDEL. Suffice it to say, Street and I had an insightful 20-minute chat covering matters of the economy, education and race-relations in the city. But one moment of attention-straying…

Hey Look, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Endorses Fleeing The Scene Of A Fatal Accident

A 2-year-old Milwaukee toddler ran into a Milwaukee street on Sunday night and was fatally struck by a van, which remained at the scene. There, the 41-year-old driver was fatally shot, as was, mysteriously, a 15-year-old. Horribly tragic all around. Also horrible (as you probably noticed if you clicked the link already)?

‘Nothing But Gentleman’ Says Woman Of The Wu Tang Clan She’s Accused Of Bedding Backstage

It’s been way too long since I’ve blogged about Divorce Court. I realized this today because of an Uproxx post titled “This Man Hilariously Accused His Wife Of Sleeping With The Entire Wu-Tang Clan On ‘Divorce Court.’” This more than justifies the existence of human beings on Earth. Also, RIP ODB. Wish you could have…
