A wealthy restauranteur in Center City Philadelphia used to drive a white Lexus, cruising the streets of Pennsylvania's largest city drunk off of her ass. After a heavy dose of court-ordered counselling, a newly-minted responsible Susanna Goihman was given the keys to her white Lexus, and took to the streets again.
On June 22, "her car struck a 15 year old child," killing the young girl. Goihman, hiding behind her 5th Amendment Rights, refuses to talk. In response, the outraged community took to camping out on her lawn, protesting her silence with a daily vigil resplendent with police sirens, bull horns and rage. The raucous has so galvanized the city that neighbors offer the use of their bathrooms to protesters, SEPTA busses honk their horns in support, and Philly cops flash their lights and sirens in solidarity.
Seems no one likes a selfish bitch anymore...
Ms Goihman throws back another drink, pulls her blinds, and hides. A warm summer night, she recalls. The sky shone with the bright lights of Philadelphia, the drinks at her bar were chilled and smooth. All that remains is a half-empty bottle of asprin, a stained blouse and a vague memory of a particularly bumpy stretch of Ridge Avenue on her drunken ride home.
