We hold these truths…
How appropriate to launch the Philadelphia Metroblogging site on the same weekend that saw the birth of our nation lo’ those many years ago. They say the Declaration was signed on a sunny but cool day. On July 4th, in Philadelphia? Who are they kiddin’?
Hopefully, everyone involved with Live 8 will be as lucky with the weather this Saturday. Personally, I’ll be nowhere near the event. Seeing Stevie Wonder would be way cool, but I can’t imagine what the crowds and the heat will be like. Not to mention that, besides Stevie, the rest of our line-up, um, sux. Sux bad. I’m disappointed. Philadelphia can throw a good party and I was really hoping for something more special out of Live 8.
I don’t want to get off on a rant about how Philadelphia is like the popular child actor that couldn’t make the transition to adult success — I’ll save that for later. Philadelphia is a great city and there’s a lot to talk about, both good and bad. I’m sure our city’s new bloggers will never be at a loss for subject matter.
Like Philadelphia radio, for instance. Who misses Y100? More from me on that, later.
