… American Tragedy | Nidra Poller | The Blogs. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
This doesn't sound like the country I've travelled around in. The author of the piece may have grown up in Philly, but she seems to have lost touch with it. I lived in Germantown for 20 years. It's a big place. And yes, there's been an increase of violence lately in in East Germantown. West Germantown seems to be much as it's always been. I could also directed the guy to a good German restaurant right outside the city in Rockledge. There's a German deli there, too. And, as I was telling Dave, if he visited Wisconsin, he missed lutefisk country (out past Soldiers Grove).
Sounds to me as if this guy had an agenda.
