Shame you didn't "vote like your life depend on it!"


I was thinking about Milton Street today. Probably because, in redoing the home office, I stumbed across his campaign literature which now sits inches from this keyboard upon which I'm typing, to remind me of what could have been: A Philadelphia with Milton in the headlines every day, fighting for you, and for me.
Alas, all we have is Larry Farnese. And he, sirs, is no Milton Street. And he, sirs, never will be. And I, sirs, have a right to be hostile. Because you, sirs, will soon figure out what campaign managing Brian was trying to say all along: A puppet does not a good legislator make.
