A salute to the 'perfect' Phillie

We used our editorial page today to offer a salute to the 'perfect' Phillie.

By that we mean Roy Halladay - who we lost in a plane crash this week at the age of 40 - was perfect on the field, and just as good off it.

Halladay was the 'perfect' guy for Philly.

You can read our editorial here.

This morning there are a couple of Halladay updates.

His family has scheduled a public memorial service Tuesday in Clearwater, spring home of the Phillies.

And finally there is this one, which is kind of hard to believe.

Philly police say they nabbed a guy who ripped off a Roy Halladay jersey that was left at the memorial shrine that is forming outside Citizens Bank Park.

You can't make this stuff up.
