  Broad Street was a no-go. I-95 was a parking lot. And game-day traffic hadn't even started yet. On the highways in and around Philadelphia on Sunday, a traffic disaster brewed with a fiery early-morning crash on I-95 near Broad Street shutting down that section of highway for much of the morning - while the Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run rendered that 10-mile city spine off-limits to vehicle traffic until close to noon. The accident happened about 6 a.m. on the northbound side of I-95 when a tractor-trailer hit an empty, disabled car, State Police Cpl. Gerard McShea said.

Neighbors of Valley Forge Elementary School in Wayne are making a racket about the planned removal of their local tennis court to make way for a parking lot. "It's absolutely a shame," said Donald Detwailer, 83, who said he had been playing on the court for 35 years. "There are many other ways of doing this. " The Tredyffrin/Easttown School District plans to build a 24-space parking lot in front of the school on Walker Road. The elimination of the tennis courts, located behind the school, will limit the hard surfacing that blocks rainwater absorption.

Looking at the north side of Philadelphia City Hall, most people see a broad sidewalk that should be available for pedestrians hustling up from the train station or crossing town for work or entertainment. But a privileged few in this city see that paved surface as a parking lot for the entitled. Imagine what would happen happen to an ordinary citizen who pulled his car up on the sidewalk and ditched it there? It's a good thing members of Philadelphia's elite don't think they can pull up and park on Independence Mall or in front of the Art Museum steps, where large, flat surfaces also can be found.
