Slate Tries to Make Philadelphia Tourists Feel Bad About Themselves

The Scoop responds

Reports show the Philadelphia region attracted a record 37 million visitors in 2010. Yay! [MSNBC via Reuters] In related news, Slate has decided the Rocky Statue is cliche and the 37 million tourists should stop taking photos with it. [Slate] The Scoop disagrees. Come, tourists. Take your expected photos and crowd up our sidewalks, but please, spend your money in our economically-challenged city. xoxo, The Scoop.
