Happy Thanksgiving, residents of South Philly! Though I have written hundreds of items for this publication during my five-and-a-half-year affiliation with it, most of you are complete strangers to me, but that is of no concern to yours truly with regards to rooting for your success.
I oppose President Barack Obama’s plan to import and re-settle 10,000 Syrian refugees at American taxpayers’ expense. But hey, I’m a libertarian. It’s hard to find a government program I do support.
Many thanks to editor Joseph Myers for his touching tribute to veterans with a special memorial to his grandfather who served in Korea (“Venerating veterans,” Nov. 12).
Hi, Joe [Myers}. I grew up in South Philly and also went to [Bishop] Neumann at 26th and Mifflin streets, class of 1973. I love your insightful and thoughtful observations of not just our neighborhoods but Philly in general.
