Oh, look at this strapping young fellow! His name is Clark Cord, and he is very handsome -- handsome enough to be a model (in fact, he is a model, having just won the VMAN model search). In order to keep his model-esque physique, Cord must work out in public, in the city, which means he must also t ... More >>
I was innocently judging the Bruce Yelk-produced Mr. Philadelphia Gay pageant the other night when the Q&A segment brought a perfectly innocuous question to one of the finalists:

On Friday afternoon a guy robbed the Chase Bank at 525 Broadway, or rather he wanted to -- the teller wouldn't give him any money, and he fled on foot.

The Video Is Not Longer Available Box above once housed a 10-minute clip from "The City," the new series about "life" in "the city" which has captivated local scribes.
