The List: 5 Things That Are Totally Different About Philly Since Vince Fumo Went to Prison

Today is get-out-of-jail day for former State Sen. Vince Fumo. He’s scheduled to spend six months in a halfway house before returning to his Green Street digs. It’ll give him some time to readjust to all the things that have changed in Philadelphia since he’s been off in Ashland, Ky.

Such as:

1. Baseball here stinks now.

2. Mansions are out. Micro apartments are in.

3. We worry about tornadoes here now constantly.

4. Flash mobs ain’t what they used to be. (Except when they are.)

5. Back then, the daily papers were owned and run by a politically connected power-hungry local. Now … never mind.
