And City Council is worried about Trans-Fat...LOL

In Philadelphia, homicides rose 7 percent to a nine-year high of 406 last year, giving it the highest murder rate per 100,000 people among America's 10 biggest cities, according to a survey of police departments by the Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper, which keeps runs a tally.
Philadelphia, with a population of about 1.5 million, also has the highest poverty rate -- 25 percent -- among those cities.

Yet what does this Democrat city concern itself with Trans-Fat....

Philadelphia - Philadelphia City Council Thursday joined New York City and a number of other cities around America by unanimously passing legislation to ban the use of trans fats in Philadelphia restaurants and bakeries. Mayor John Street is expected to sign the bill. In a recent radio address he commented, "Philadelphia is at the forefront of the national trend to ban this dangerous fat. This legislation coupled with the recent enactment of the smoking ban will make Philadelphians even healthier."

Yeah as long as you can avoid the random Gun Fire from the Drug Dealers. The death count continues to rise, and in This shining example of a Democrat utopia they worry more about smoking and fat....
