Daily Grinder: Give Carl Greene His Due!
Disgraced, public life-is-basically-over, out-of-state shock treatment(?) king/former Philadelphia Housing Authority executive director Carl Greene wants $4 million from PHA, and he wants PHA to settle. A wealth of PHA board members and others think this is ridiculous. Former Mayor John Street was emailed by the Inky and wrote a message back saying “Ha Ha!” 64 times. Richard A. Sprague, who represents the PHA board members, says, “There’s not going to be any settlement.” (Remember: $4 million.) [Inky]
Ex-Philly cop gets 2-4 years for “forcing a female prisoner into a sex act.” So weird how that sky is just blue, all the time! [Inky]
Philebrity posted a hilarious/angering/sad screenshot from McFadden’s Facebook page this morning (with Facebook, you can neither run nor hide from your faults) and the Daily News is continuing its coverage on the bar’s ongoing perhaps discriminatory policies. Another lawsuit, this one by an event promoter, claims the bar discriminated by way of its dresscode: No baggy clothes, white Ts, hoodies or athletic jerseys. [Philebrity/Daily News]
Do you like Pennsylvania redevelopment grants? You think it was sorta cool how Gov. Ed Rendell used such grants to fund both public and private projects across the state, all the while “saying Pennsylvania earns back the money it invests through tax revenue and new jobs”? Yeah? Think it’s cool? Huh? Like that, do ya? TOO BAD. Governor-Elect Corbett will have none of it. None! [WHYY]
