Another icon hits a few sour notes

It has not been a great couple of weeks for Philadelphia icons.

First you had Tastykake on the bring of extinction. Instead the ailing maker of Krimpets and Kandy Kakes being sold to a Georgia company.
Luckily, they are going to keep their new South Philly plant – and the 800 jobs that go with it – in place.

Now we hear that the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra is filing for bankruptcy. Talk about hitting a few sour notes.

Next you’ll be telling me that Scott Paper is going out of business. Or that Horn & Hardart is no more.

Oh, never mind.

I will remind you Phil, that at the USS Arizona Memorial there sits a huge anchor, from the USS Arizona, that praises it as being forged in Chester, PA. The past is the past!

I'm with you, Mr. Heron... If only we could go back to the days of putting a nickle into a slot in front of the mac & cheese and having the window open. Fond memories that most now reading the Times will not have a clue about what we speak...
