Like the saddest version you’ve ever seen of one of those “Hey! People still read magazines!” ads, Travel & Leisure has released its “America’s Favorite Cities” package, and the results, when it comes to Philly, are pretty predictable. One one hand, we’ve got the 4th best pizza in the country — a semi-honor we can live with, it feels fair — but on the other, we take the number 3 slot in least attractive people. Now, there’s a few ways to feel about this, but we’ve got a novel idea: For once, how about we don’t shoot the messenger? Y’all know Philly has some ugly motherfuckers. So let’s not blame the lowly magazine editor who trades in cliché and counts his lucky stars every night that he still has a job. He’s just going along with the impression that he gets whenever Philly goes on the national stage. No, rather, let’s blame… these assholes. For it is they who are the true enemy of beauty and, by extension, of ourselves.
