PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP

Lots of people deserve credit for the Phillies' World Series championship, but I'd like to single out two of my clients: the City of Philadelphia and Comcast Corporation. Mayor Michael Nutter wisely chose to keep parade plans under wraps, to avoid jinxing the team; while the construction of the Comcast Center downtown was topped off by a tiny figurine of William Penn, to restore his hat as the highest point of the Philly skyline and reverse the curse that went into effect when 1 and 2 Liberty Place rose above City Hall in the mid-1980's. With both sides respecting the superstitions that go along with rooting for sports teams in this town, how's that for a public/private partnership?
