Heavyweight Boxing Champion Jack Johnson gets a speeding ticket by Philadelphia Police in 1915. He gave the officer a $100 bill; when the officer protested that he couldn't make change for that much, Johnson told him to keep the change as he was going to make his return trip at the same speed.

    SEPTA issued a blueprint Thursday to revitalize its bus network in Philadelphia that's suffering from slow service, shrinking ridership, and competition from ride share businesses. A redesigned bus network could be "different from anything Philadelphia has seen in anybody's memory," said Jarrett Walker, whose firm was hired by SEPTA for $250,000 to author the 100-page report expected to shape the priorities for city transit in the coming years.

As stories about School District deficits , property tax delinquents , and a missing $33 Million make headlines, Chief Assessment Officer Michael Piper's Office of Property Assessment has largely escaped scrutiny outside PlanPhilly.

    Imagine receiving an 'F' from your teacher because of errors in the first draft of a term paper, even though your final paper had no errors? That's essentially what occurred last week, when City Controller Rebecca Rhynhart embarked on a PR campaign accusing the City of $924 million worth of errors that, in fact, have long since been resolved.
