HAVE YOU SEEN those horrible light standards on N. Broad Street? UG-LEEEE! They look like Big Apple steampipes. And seem to narrow the street to make it a more of a raceway than it is. They cast little light. They seem to reach to the heavens, but need a crowning apex. Turn them sideways for good water mains. $14 MILLION DOWN THE DRAIN…. I was elated to hear Grainne LYNN passed her Bar Examination! That tiny kid I first met at a picnic with her dad, then Judge-to-be James LYNN, has grown – and smart too! Dad took her out for dinner in an Italian restaurant.
