Skateboarders On Boat Row

Street Skaters: Early last month, under I-95 in Port Richmond, saw two skateboarders filming themselves ollie onto and off the bow of this ^abandoned boat^. The boat is still there.

Vert Skaters: A few weeks ago, after a computer session at the Fishtown Library Branch, was walking home when I spotted a teen sitting in the lifeguard's chair at the Public Pool. He was acting as guard/cop spotting sentry while a couple of his buddies skateboarded the empty pool. The 26th Precint parking lot is adjacent and the precinct itself is 1/2 block away.

Note: Where I grew up, the opportunity to skate pools was never afforded us. The pools were always rectangular with hard right angle corners, never round kidney forms. Also, Southwest Texas was generally warm during the autumn/winter months and pools were generally never drained thanks to chlorine & acid (ph levels).

Quad: Summer Speaker Starter Kits

No matter where this summer takes you, you'll always have plenty of flavors and sounds to savor right from your Pringles® can.

How to Get Your Pringles Can Speaker:

Step 1: Buy Pringles

Buy any four Super Stack cans. Save your receipt(s). Enjoy.

Step 2: Print Out Form

Get in front of the computer. (Nice work, you did it.) Download our snazzy PDF. Print it out.

Step 3: Fill Out & Mail Form

Fill out the form. Circle the Pringles item(s) on your receipt(s). Place form and receipt(s) in an envelope. Add postage to the envelope and seal it up!

Step 4: Wait It Out

Wait (at most 10 to 12 weeks), comforted only by the sound of crunching crisps until your speaker arrives.

Say What?

"Some people say I’m extreme, but they said the John Birch Society was extreme, too." -— Tea Party Patriots founder Kelly Khuri

"Mitt Romney is like someone you hook up with periodically until you get serious and you want to meet somebody serious. He is friends with benefits. And Perry is marriage material." -— Fox News host Greg Gutfeld

Tom Tomorrow: But what do they want? Who can save the persecuted bankers?
