Philadelphia Mayor John Street Apparently Has All The Time In The World

On June 29th, Philadelphia mayor John Street camped out for over 7 hours in the morning, then returned to the line later that day (a member of his security detail held his place), just so he could be the 6th person to buy an iPhone.

With the Philadelphia murder rate what it is, that alone indicates that his attentions should be elsewhere. He is the mayor, waiting on line is a job for interns, perhaps even aides. But the mayor standing on line for a new toy, it sends the wrong message. He is the human symbol of Philadelphia, he represents local government.
