Tales from Two Cities (Excuse the very bad pun, but it's 9:44 a.m.)
I don't know what to make of the societal ramifications, if there are any, of what happened on subways in Philly and NYC yesterday. So, I'll just present it for your edification.
In New York (and check out dude's byline):
A strip club isn't the only place in town you can see a pole dance -- amazed passengers on an L train watched in awe as a naked young woman competed with straphangers for space on a pole. ... Most [passengers] were blasé. But one woman started screaming and an elderly man next to her got the shakes.
A SEPTA train struck and killed a woman who apparently jumped on the underground tracks at the 8th Street Station in Center City yesterday. Witnesses told investigators that the woman jumped from the far end of the platform about 3:30 p.m. and landed in front of an oncoming eastbound Market-Frankford train.
