Great cities attract ambitious people, the post by essayist Paul Graham begins. "In a hundred subtle ways, the city sends you a message: you could do more; you should try harder."

New York, he says, shouts to its denizens, You need to make more money.

Boston (actually Cambridge), he says, makes you burn to be smarter.

Philadelphia? He doesn't get around to Philadelphia. So we should.

What does the City of Brotherly Love bark at those walking its streets?

"So who's asking?"

"What's YOUR problem?"

"We don't care?"

"How 'bout dem Iggles?"

I must be having a bad day.
