In all seriousness, it could be someone who has played Santa Claus.

I would know that face anyplace. They might start there search at the north pole. It looks like Santa Claus.

Every lame duck president since there have been a presidential aircraft has done this. And the expenses should be paid for by other than the taxpayers.

I just hope her claims about her disappearance are genuine. How many times have heard of cases like this where some of the claims of what happened are not supported. I have some reservations about the way she was released apparently without a struggle in her own neighborhood. The State Police spokesman said she has been cooperative and they are determined to find who did this. But remember Police investigators are well trained to handle and sift through and get the true facts. They will give the impression that they believe you, when in fact they are skeptical, and when they get to the bottom of a case, the real facts will come out.

Notice that this report that delayed a few months came out on a holiday weekend. By tuesday when the business week resumes it will be old news. The business week will be slower anyway with many operations in the shutdown mode. One-half million dollars per job, Andrew ought to be proud of that.

I am thinking that Mr. Petronis has a scheduling problem not only at the city center, but also being in conflict with other shows in the northeast region? If a number of gun dealers are commited to another show, they are not going to be available. I know that the hobby I have is running into a conflict with a larger event in eastern Mass. that moved to the same weekend as an event that has been held for years on the same weekend in this area in September. There were already 2 other events, one in western NY and the other in western PA. on the same day. It will be hard to get vendors for this event. The weekend after is open( no regional events scheduled) but the venue is not available. Apparently no other suitable venue either on such short notice. This event normally draws around 400, they will be lucky to get 250.

What are the retailers who offer self service fountain drinks were you can re-fill going to do? Probably eliminate self service and go to just bottles and cans. And what about these places that will continue fountain service? You get a 16 ounce cup that is half ice. I'll bet that stores just outside the city limits of Phila. are going to have a windfall.

The legislature is good at passing the bills that cost the state nothing like Metroplex, and others like requiring schools to test for lead in their water, another unfunded mandate. I'm just waiting for some legislative leader to give a speech telling of how good the session was and a lot was accomplished,we hear that claim every year.
