Thursday's DN: The School District Budget Gets Ugly

Tough times have arrived and appear to be getting worse at the Philadelphia School District.  Ronnie Polaneczky calls it "Every Child Left Behind."

Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey has a chat with the new mayor of Chicago about the top cop job in the Windy City.

This is going to be fun: Sam Katz, the new chairman of the Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority has some questions about the budget put forth by the guy he considered challenging in the race for mayor this year.

And Ben Waxman does the math of Philadelphia's "Corruption Tax."
