One more thing to blame Bush for

Increased gun violence in Philly (and other cities).

Seriously. Philly Mayor John Street said so.

I loved the final paragraph: "Street said an administration goal this year is to train 1,000 clergy members in conflict-resolution techniques and then get them talking with young people on the streets, in churches and in schools."

Is he prepared to have a bunch of dead clergy littering the streets of his city?

And how can it be that the media are culpable in the violence? I mean, we all KNOW the media are just shills for the Bush administration and are covering up the daily slaughter over in Iraq, right?

I made Mayor Street my Hack of the Week for this. Thanks for the heads up!

This is truly a bizarre statement by Street!
