    philadelphians riot for FUN.  I'm not proud of that fact but its a fact I've known since I was a kid and the sixers won the championship.

    the violent flash mobs here have very little to do with the economic downturn, IMO.  perhaps the lack of summer jobs for kids has something to do with it but it doesn't feel that way to me.  seems like something kids here would do in any economy.
