Mayor Nutter Rides The Rails


SPOTTED: Philadelphia mayor and Penn grad Michael Nutter and his wife on an early morning post-inaugural train back to Philly. Having presumably spent yesterday in Washington with our fine nation's political elite, Nutter slummed it with the rest of us on the regional, in coach, no less! Unlike another semi-notable local politician who was known to favor a first-class ride on Amtrak's Acela, Nutter did his part to reduce (slow the increase?) of Philadelphia's massive deficit by saving the city a chunk of change.  Props to you, Mayor Nutter!
