The Evil Empire and Philadelphia Collide

Yesterday’s Metro featured an article about a local author that has particular interest in the visit of Prince Charles and Camilla (whatever her title is)to Philadelphia this weekend. Steve Grasse has actually calculated an amount that he feels Great Britain owes the world in reparations for all of the problems that it has caused the world. He plans to host a rally this weekend to coincide with the visit.

It doesn’t happen to me very often, but I think this one has me speechless.

    Hasn’t the USA usurped the title of “evil empire”? I coulda sworn that insult became common sometime during the Cold War.

    Or maybe I’m just having a flakey moment….

    No, you are correct, however “Evil Empire” is the title of the book–it seems Grasse things GB is deserving of that particular crown.
