    Philadelphia Inquirer seems to want to keep public notice from the public
    By Jim HaighSpecial to the University City Review A few weeks ago, the Philadelphia Inquirer published a deep dive into the fascinating domain of public notice. This is advertising that is required by law to be published in a newspaper, and is generally paid for by a governmental entity or stakeholders in a legal proceeding.

    Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner: Stop overspending on prisons and put the money in schools instead.
    For the last three decades, Larry Krasner has seen America's criminal justice system take its toll on prisoners - all at exorbitant cost to taxpayers. "[I had] been in court for 30 years before I got silly and decided to run for DA," Krasner, the district attorney for Philadelphia, said in an interview.

    A measure that would require developers to build more parking along with new housing got a major haircut in City Council on Wednesday. The mandatory parking minimum bill revised by the council's Rules Committee bears little resemblance to the far more significant reform proposed in Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell's original bill.

In the 22 school shootings this year where deaths or injuries occurred and suspects have been identified, the majority of suspects have been white males.
