Hi there, Philadelphia. It's a rainy Tuesday morning, so bring an umbrella. Though the weather doesn't agree, the area is still in celebration mode as much of the country seems to be rooting for the Eagles. Opponents of gerrymandering received a huge win yesterday, too. Let's dig in.

In a move sure to be felt throughout the 2018 elections, Pennsylvania's Supreme Court ruled Monday that the state's congressional map violates the constitution and discriminates against Democrats.
The order blocks the map's use in primaries this May and requires a new map to be drawn immediately. The General Assembly has until Feb. 9 to pass a constitutional map. If they don't, the court will adopt its own.
The ruling follows a wave of similar partisan gerrymandering cases across the country from North Carolina to Wisconsin.
Bill Cosby showed up at Germantown's La Rose Jazz Club last night to put on a surprise performance that included jokes about his eyesight, scatting along with the jazz band, and even playing the drums.
One thing he didn't mention? His April retrial for the alleged sexual assault of Andrea Constand.
The show was the latest stop on what seems like a pre-trial public relations campaign. Earlier this month, he invited press to join him for dinner at Old City's Ristorante La Veranda.
The city is still on a high after Sunday's big win and, unlike the Patriots, it looks like the Eagles have a strong contingent of supporters across the country. And in case you were wondering, that excited fan who ran into a pole on the subway is fine and yes, a doughnut shop has baked a "greased pole" doughnut.
Not only is fan favorite Malcolm Jenkins sending a recently released juvenile lifer to the Super Bowl, he's apparently even inspired one of the Patriots with his words of wisdom.
