Liquor still can be had in Philadelphia, but getting It Isn't easy. The "lid" is on, for the time being at least, more effectively than in any other big city's experience since early prohibition days.

A police official who had deposited $55,600 in less than one year had so many bank accounts that he couldn't remember them all.
