Brendan points out how Philadelphia, which is looking to close libraries, many in the city’s poorer neighborhoods to save the $8,000,000.00 they have been unable to collect from the Iggles, went to Uncle Sugar to request money for casino development.

And, ya know what? if the Iggles win a championship, I bet Philly will blow more than $8,000,000.00 on the parade.

    Relatively speaking.
