Chronicles Of Depression 2.0: #389: Philly

Mayor Nutter outlines budget cuts
"The economic storm has arrived with such force that a respected economist said it was as if the national economy had 'fallen off a cliff,"' Nutter said.

Emphasis added by me.

Among other things, Philadelphia is shutting down eleven libraries.

Libraries are always seen as a "luxury" in hard times. How tragic.
