Wisconsin Gov. and presidential candidate Scott Walker stopped by Pat’s and Geno’s in South Philly [Tuesday] for a campaign event, and, perhaps not surprisingly, things appear to have not gone all that well.
First off, it appears that when Walker showed up, he cut his way into the line at Geno’s, which legitimately and understandably upset some members of the lunch crowd…Then, over at Pat’s following his second steak, Walker reportedly left his trash on a table in the outdoor seating area, apparently expecting the steak shop to send out a member of the wait staff (which does not exist) to clean it up.

Enduring one of the toughest times in my life, what is a more suitable soundtrack to my tribulation than this timeless masterpiece? It’s not depressing, it’s emotionally draining. It’s cathartic and it’s exactly what I need right now.
“Far away from home And everyone I really know All at once I find I’m a stranger even to myself And like the snow that’s falling I’ve never been so pure before Christiania, before I leave you You’ll leave a mark on me
I like the way you smile I like the way you try too hard And in my heart this moment I like the way you seem to read my mind
And what would I not say To be in that room again If only for one moment That you would hold me In your tiny hand, and I might say Tomorrow I could find you, and you might take Something that I thought I could never give away If just to think I’ve something more to show
And as I touch the sky I feel the space I’ve left behind So carry me back home Out on my own, I, like in a living dream And all the lights of London Are like a million reproachful eyes Tomorrow I’ll be walking a different city Beneath a different sky
And what would I not say If we were in that room again If only for one lifetime You would take me In your tiny hand, to a place Where I know that I can find you To a place, Where everything I’ve done and I’ve done has gone away If just to show me something I don’t know…”
