    On a normal day, the four-way intersection at 43rd Street and Baltimore Avenue is a hub of activity, with Clarkville restaurant and Green Life Cafe on the two north corners and Clark Park to the south. Meanwhile, the fourth corner at 4224 Baltimore Avenue, stands in stark contrast to the others as an overgrown dirt pit.

Your friendly proprietor is disenfranchised in the primary elections for not picking a political party, so that's definitely part of it.

    Turnout in Tuesday's primary election was lower in the city than in the rest of the state. Experts cited many reasons for that, and a resultant problem: Uneven voting makes for uneven representation. - Jonathan Lai, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News
