But...but....we were in the same hotel and didn't meet!

I am devastated.

All I know about Philadelphia I learned from The Sixth Sense, Pesky Apostrophe, and GayProf.

The group house that was bombed was inhabited by MOVE.

Philadelphia was also home to two long-running television shows for awhile...American Bandstand and the Mike Douglas Show.

My only experiences with Philadelphia are flying into the airport once, and seeing its nice skyline at night from Camden, NJ.

Had it not been for the power of the Virginia founding fathers, Philadelphia would have surely become the permanent capital of the US. The Virginia delegation pursuaded others to construct a city on the Potomac, which of course is Washington.

Enjoy your stay and best of luck with presenting your paper.

Worth noting that cops not only bombed the house, they actively prevented firefighters from doing anything to save the black neighborhood as blocks burned to the ground. I don't recall if the newly homeless folks were ever compensated for their losses. I do recall hearing an interview where one of the neighbors really regretted asking the police to get involved. They didn't like the PUSH organization either, as they were loud and annoying. But, obviously, would rather have loud and annoying neighbors and an unburned house.

2007-10-12T20:16:00.000-07:00

I've never been.

Although, you left out any information about that wonderful, tastebud-pleasing, heart attack-inducing cheesesteak sandwich.

Oh, how I love them.

And they're really hard to find here in California.

2007-10-12T12:46:00.000-07:00

Yes, my invites go spurned as well doug.

You really like to do research. If only history class was as entertaining as this, I might have retained something, lol.

2007-10-12T11:11:00.000-07:00

I always learn something from your posts. In this case basically the only thing I knew of Philadelphia was the cream cheese, which I eat almost everyday, and that turned out to be just a nominal name. Oh, and the movie of the same name starring Tom Hanks. You could say I was Philadelphia challenged.

Yes, "it's so lonely without GayProf".

2007-10-12T09:12:00.000-07:00

Some of my maternal ancestors are from Pennsylvania. Anyway, I hope you have a great trip. You and Stinkylulu should get together, and then blog about each other. That would be fun. :)

Also, thanks for the history lesson.

My ex lived in Philly after we split up, so I've been there a few times trying to make peace, which we ultimately did.

I too will be in Philly this weekend! Saturday evening I am visiting with friends who recently adopted a baby, where I will stay overnight. Sunday I am meeting up with a group from my community theatre production of 1776 for a fact-finding tour. I'd love to meet up but not sure if time will permit.

2007-10-12T07:34:00.000-07:00

Wow. I enjoyed the area a lot when I went years ago for a business trip. (Admittedly, it was because I was near the area where Witness was filmed and I may have walked on hallowed Harrison Ford-touched ground.) Now I have two reasons to go back: Harrison Ford and GayProf touched ground. Sigh.

Since Halloween is approaching, I thought I would attend your lecture series in a Wonder Woman costume. Bracelets and magic lasso included. ;-)

Thanks for the tidbits on Philly. I always think of the movie of the same name starring Denzel Washington whenever Philadelphia is mentioned. Which then prompts the memory of the title song by Springsteen.

2007-10-12T05:20:00.000-07:00

Hm. And I don't have anything planned this weekend ...

I love Philly. Have fun. Good luck with your presentation. Hang out at Woody's.

Okeydoke.
I'm at the same conference.
I'll be stalkin'!

2007-10-12T00:53:00.000-07:00

I've been crying out to heaven for a visit from GayProf, but my pleas have gone unanswered. Or rather, the answer has been, "NO!"

Have fun in Phillie. Relax and enjoy your presentation. *hugs*

i thought it was new york city cops who bombed the house.
