This is the view out of my office window. When I asked why the fountain in Love Park was the color of pond scum, I was told that they had dyed the water for Earth Day.
Only in Philadelphia, I tell you, would they pollute the water in honor of Earth Day.
Last year, Showtime leased the fountain for a few days and filled it with fake blood to advertise the new season of Dexter. Good advertising ploy, but was a fountain full of blood - right across from City Hall - really in the best of taste in a city that had a murder rate of over 400 last year?
Leave the poor fountain alone, and give me my view back.
