ROCK MUSIC MENU: Foo Fighters back in flight

It was looking pretty bleak just a few weeks back when Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl took a nasty tumble from the stage in Sweden that left his fibula snapped in two pieces.

Five European shows were canceled, including an esteemed headlining slot at the Glastonbury Festival and two nights at the legendary Wembley Stadium.

ROCK MUSIC MENU: The Roots headline Welcome America! Festival

If you missed seeing The Roots at the end of May when they hosted their sold-out sixth annual Family Picnic, then it's your lucky weekend, as the local hip-hop legends are headlining the Wawa Welcome America! concert Saturday night.

For the Fourth of July, Philadelphia paints the town red, white and blue thanks to eight days of music, exhibitions, Colonial characters and re-enactments, patriotic ceremonies and, of course, fireworks.

Our Neighbors Have Decriminalized Marijuana, when's our turn?

Forget about tax free shopping in Delaware, last night, Governor Jack Markell signed the marijuana decriminalization bill into law making our neighbor to our south "The Small Wonder" the 20th state in the nation to decriminalize marijuana possession.



This new law makes possession of up to one ounce of marijuana  a civil violation that's punishable by a $100 fine, with no possibility of jail time.  Until passage of this law, possession of up to one ounce of marijuana was a…

Are our courts indiscriminate revenue gathering?

Posted by Michael on June 4, 2015 at 1:29pm 14 Comments

These are difficult thoughts to present. On the one hand I want to let everyone know that something awful is happening, something that we are all suffering from as a result, and that we are causing it. On the other hand to some it may sound over-embellished, whiny, or just plain overreactive. I'll only present the information the best I can and hope it helps us all. Words are free, so why not spend a few?



I recently attended traffic court after receiving a speeding ticket here in… Continue
