FlashBackward

flash I never really wanted to wade into this whole Philly flash-mob thing. But then Judge Kevin Dougherty earned my rarely awarded “he’s the fucking man” award for raining justice down upon lying punks’ heads, before two additional things happened that forced me to reconsider.
One: Last night, I asked myself whether the race of the juveniles had even been mentioned in all the paranoic coverage across media both professional and social; well, it apparently crossed Stu’s mind as well, since he has an excellent asking-questions column today.
And two: Mayor Nutter came up with the money quote on the whole thing:

“I ran for mayor. I didn’t run for mother.”

Apparently, the mothers of Philadelphia didn’t, either, the way familial responsibilities have been so societally shirked in town.
