Nutter Speaks Honestly...and isn't criticized

In the past few weeks, there has been a major public safety issue in Philadelphia, as marauding youths are attacking/assaulting citizens minding their own business in normally safe neighborhoods like the Theater District and in Old City. Borrowing rhetoric from the likes of Juan Williams and Bill Cosby, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter spoke from the pulpit of a Baptist Church in West Philadelphia last Sunday.

It's quite amazing to see a politician not being attacked for speaking those words, in a church, (he's a Democrat, so it's OK in the minds of the media) and I could go on and on about the double standard in the media, but I'll refrain for now and instead, commend Mayor Nutter for having the courage to stand up and say it!
