Kenney’s Alliance With Johnny Doc Looks Worse By the Day

In other news, Jameson sales at the 2nd and Market LCB have mysteriously shot up 300% in the past 2 or so weeks.

    Kenney's Alliance With Johnny Doc Looks Worse By the Day
    The FBI is reportedly investigating the mayor's appointee to the Zoning Board, who just so happens to be a close Local 98 ally. I had a nice little chuckle the other day when I was reading the latest installment in a growing series of Inquirer stories about FBI investigations involving local union leaders, politicians and appointees.

    Jazz began to emerge as a distinct musical style around the turn of the twentieth century, a merging of two vernacular African American musical styles-ragtime and blues-with elements of popular music. New Orleans, the "cradle of jazz," was the most important city in this process, with Chicago and New York playing particularly significant roles in the 1920s and 1930s.
