Well, the mayor's race is on here in Philadelphia and early signs are not good. While Philadelphia faces the usually laundry list of contentious urban issues which get a lot of play, there's a serious lack of public conversation about two linked issues of major importance - transit and development. The city needs better transportation, and the city needs some smarter guidance for how it develops and redevelops.

The candidate who can address these issues seriously and with genuine vision gets my support.
