Sadly, the city of Philadelphia has not learned any lessons from the horrendous murder rate that it experienced last year. Over 410 people were killed (and by "killed" I'm taking murders) in this city last year.

What did the city leaders do about it? Oh, they expressed concern. They assembled meetings to discuss the escalating violence. They sent police officers to meet with neighborhood leaders. They moved police from quieter areas into the areas of violence. Oh, did I mention that they expressed concern and had meetings? Yeah. That's some great leadership in this city.

And now, today, Tuesday, March 28, 2007......86 days into the new year of 2007, and the murder rate is already at 95. NINETY-FIVE PEOPLE KILLED IN 86 DAYS!!!

But, the brain-trust in City Hall has expressed concern. So, I guess, that means that the killing will soon stop?
