Arlen Specter made an appearance this week in Philadelphia - at Helium Comedy Club. No joke. Specter did a few minutes of stand-up at the club's open mic night.


Philly.com reported on Specter's appearance, "I've been in comedy now for 30 years," the former senator explained.

Taking a try at stand-up was a natural step after spending so many years in the "sit-down comedy" of Congress - and, Specter noted, it was considerably less expensive.

PA Texting Law to Overshadow Philadelphia Cellphone Ban
 
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA
started: 12/26/11 5:22 pm | updated: 12/26/11 5:22 pm
 
The Pennsylvania state's new texting while driving ban, effective March 8, 2012, will effectively wipe out the 2 year old Philadelphia city ordinance banning total cell phone use. The state law only bans texting but allows for other use of the devices such as dialing, GPS, music, etc. You can hold and manipulate the device any way use wish, just not for texting. Philadelphia's law banned any use of a phone including phone calls but the state law will trump any local ordinances.
