Q: Charles, you're a man of the world. Why do you think Philly gets such a bad rap compared to New York and D.C.? Or do I just have the typical Philly inferiority complex?

A: Philly is a great city. I can live anywhere and I choose to live here at least half the year. New York and D.C. are international cities. Then there's Vegas and L.A., Chicago and all the rest.
Each city has its unique qualities. That doesn't necessarily make one better than the other. It's like ice cream, 'bro, some people like vanilla, some prefer chocolate and others like tutti-frutti, although I don't know why. That stuff is nasty.
