I have an idea of how PATCO could use $11 million...

In a top-of-the-fold A1 story, the Inquirer says the Delaware River Port Authority will vote Wednesday on what community-development projects to earmark and piss away $11 million on both sides of the Delaware River. You see, the DRPA makes money from cars and High Speed Lines crossing the bridges to and fro Philly each day and, since 1992, has frittered away some $375 million ...

...on sports arenas, museums, concert halls, and other projects, much to commuters' dismay.

In fact, the DRPA says such spending is "necessary and appropriate." Oh really? Well, you know what I'd consider necessary and appropriate, you unapologetic schiesters? How about funding cameras that WORK in the PATCO stations so, when people are walking to buy a ticket and fund your greedy inhibitions, they don't get hit by a friggin' car, likely by someone who just got off a train and walked by your non-working cameras drunk as a skunk.
Assholes, one and all.
