One reader forwards us a note about a holiday party over the weekend near 25th and Brown that enjoyed a little something extra, courtesy of Philly’s finest:
“So a policeman comes to my door at 7 pm and tells me I have to move my car due to an impromptu temporary parking regulation. He was going door to door. Turns out it was so a city official neighbor could have a Christmas party and not have to worry about their guests finding parking. And this from a city that claims to be strapped for resources.”
At first glance, we thought: No, it can’t be! Did Fumo get out of jail? (He hasn’t, of course, but you will be happy to know that it’s on his mind.) But something about this — and especially the fact that it’s on Fumo’s old stomping grounds — made us wonder: After everything we’ve been through, what city official still has the stones to rock moves like this, everybody in their immediate neighborhood orbit be fucking damned? Philebrity readers, do you know? Tell us. Hell, what’s Christmas without a little shame?
