Curse you, San Francisco: your wealthy citizens, your small total acreage, your tech-savvy public, your photogenic public servants, your relatively corruption-free public services.

Your warm, west-coast locale is already everything Philadelphia is not. And now it's going to be a hotspot, too -- way before Philly gets past its big talk, sucking up to local heavyweights like Comcast and Verizon, and perverse rich-poor, white-black politics. So now -- despite the backhanded compliment of being called New York's next borough -- we look like suckers.

Double dang.

Can't believe the NYT is presenting the title of Sixth Borough to Philly. Remember the State of the Union between NYC and Philly? Talk about disrespect!
