RIP young bull. Philly rallied around a bull yesterday after drivers on I-95 and the Vine Street expressway spotted him scampering around. He made it off 676 just in time to encounter the Pa. Game Commission, which fatally shot him. 2016 has been rough.
Pa. Attorney General Bruce Beemer yesterday released a long-awaited report commissioned by former AG Kathleen Kane that aimed to review thousands of emails sent to and from state officials that she alleged were inappropriate. It found that more than 160 judges, 35 prosecutors, 30 executive officials and five lawmakers sent inappropriate emails. None of those names have been released. This is why.
Police are still looking for clues as to why a man living near 1800 Pine Street received a package that exploded when he opened it Tuesday, according to the Inquirer. So far their biggest conclusions are that the man, Jim Alden, was likely targeted and was apparently not the work of anyone with ties to terrorism. Alden is in stable condition with injuries to one of his hands and his face.

"A Royal Christmas" opens with a rowhouse scene. And that's about as Philly as this Philly-set Hallmark movie gets. But you really need to watch this so-bad-it's-good movie, which Billy Penn is affectionally calling "Princess Hoagiemouth." It's sort of a Grace Kelly meets Princess Diaries story. We watched it all the way through and live-blogged it for you. You are so very welcome.
Politically-speaking, 2016 seems over. But anyone in politics can tell you that’s not really true. There’s always something to do, especially for the young people in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania politics who work daily to make the government run. Every month, we publish an edition of Who’s Next, presented by the Knight Foundation, that focuses on a different industry. Politics was our flagship Who’s Next list and we're highlighting up-and-comers in this field for the third time. These young people help formulate policy and get officials elected.
