City inspectors shut down more than a dozen psychics, astrologers and tarot-card readers after learning about a decades-old state law that bans fortune telling for profit.<br><br>
Inspectors did not make arrests or issue fines, “but they will if these people try to return to work,” said Dominic E. Verdi, deputy commissioner of the city Department of Licenses and Inspections.</td>

I love living in a place where there's so little crime, the cops have nothing better to do than chase down palm readers.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

Philly is in a major crisis right now and instead they are shutting down psychics. Murder rate is worse than anywhere else in the country, but charge $10 for a palm reading and go to jail. It has gotten LITTLE press in the local news too.

I used to work as a vendor and we had some run-in with that dept.<br><br>
They confiscated all my merchandise one day because I walked a few feet down a street where vending was prohibited.<br><br>
I would happily have gone somewhere else if they had told me.<br><br>
They ended up stealing all my merchandise-they were supposed to return it to us but they claimed they "threw it away"<br><br>
there really must be better things for them to focus on

that's really sad. When I lived there the murder rate was very high. It seems like we're losing another generation to violence.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
