Indulging My Guilty Pleasue

Which is reading the comments in local newspaper articles like these. Anyway, SWCC, formerly Graduate Hospital or G-Ho until Tenet sold the hospital to help pay a bunch of Medicare fraud fines, was my old neighborhood, though I lived at the very Northern end of it, closer in character to the neighboring wealthy neighborhood of Rittenhouse Square. It was a pretty marginal neighborhood when I first got to Philly, though it has improved a lot since then. It was an area where, for better or for worse, developer frenzy existed and plenty of them didn't/aren't going to get nearly as much cash for their houses as they thought. Still the housing stock has been greatly improved over the past 7 years or so.
