#FergusonPHL: Philadelphia reacts to Ferguson news

Screen Shot 2014-11-25 at 1.09.32 PMNBC Philadelphia used one of my shots from last night’s Ferguson solidarity protests in Philly, after the announcement of the decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown.

More of my photos and video from last night on are up on Demotix.

There’s another protest scheduled for 4pm today in North Philadelphia, at Broad and Cecil B. Moore. The march will start at City Hall at 3:30pm and head north. Facebook event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/295619220627789/

das irony

From CNN’s report “Obama uses Berlin symbolism to reunite old allies“:

Shortly before the address began, Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, chided Obama and said he’d rather give a speech in Germany as president than as a presidential candidate.

“So we’re going to be campaigning across the heartland of America and talking about the issues that are challenging America today,” McCain said outside a German restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. [emphasis added]

I don’t want to vote for a guy who campaigns outside German restaurants. Why not a good old TGI Fridays? Applebee’s? They don’t have those in Columbus?

No, Superman is not the mayor of Pittsburgh

Apparently, if you search Google Images for Luke Ravenstahl, this blog is the number one result.

Not that there are any actual pictures of Luke on this blog. Au contraire. There is, however, a photo of Dean Cain as Luke, courtesy of 2 Political Junkies, which I linked to back in August.

So, I thought I’d include the real Luke Ravenstahl, so as not to be spreading misinformation n’at. Heeeere’s Lukey, ready for action:


Come to think of it, he does look an awful lot like Superman in this pose.

And, so as not to be tagged as politically motivated, here is his likely rival for the mayor’s office in the next election — City Councilman Bill Peduto:


(By the way, Peduto’s celebrity lookalike was Zach Braff.)
