But really, aren't these knockers pretty great? Living in Philadelphia without a car (why do you even need one in the city, honestly) I walk pretty much everywhere with the occasional bus/el ride. This past summer I noticed that people really pride themselves on how their door looks from the street. I'm always looking for a new photographic adventure to go on and this was it. Most of these are in Olde City & Queen Village. Do you have cool knockers to show me? Email 'em to me.
Break up the monotony of your Instragram feed of baby, dog, dog with a baby, pasta with dicks drawn on newspapers. It can sometimes walk the fine line of appropriate (you can picture for yourself what was done with the photo of a kid getting sprayed in the face by a fountain), but I'm going to guess that if you're willing to follow something called newspaperdicks, you probably don't care.
Credit rating agency Moody's Investor Services has downgraded its financial outlook for the private energy firm UIL Holdings, hot on the heels of Mayor Michael Nutter's announcement that UIL was interested in buying the city's debt-ridden public utility, the Philadelphia Gas Works.
Ironically, the change was dictated by the assumption that UIL would successfully complete the $1.86 billion purchase PGW.
Moody's announced in a press release on Tuesday it was downgrading UIL's financial outlook from "stable" to "negative," following "expectation that UIL will close on its announced acquisition of [PGW]," which would massively increase the company's debt load. If the energy company closed on PGW, Moody's predicts the company "will materially increase the level of holding company debt to roughly 30% of total consolidated debt." According to Moody's, the future for the company post-takeover was not a bright one.
