We can sort out who is to blame for the forecast fail and road nightmare another time. For now, it’s safe to say that you shouldn’t go anywhere unless you absolutely have to. I just got back from a harrowing 3-mile round trip drive from Overbrook to Upper Darby that took me an hour, and I saw multiple buses and cars that appeared to be disabled.

It’s Not the Thought That Counts
Yes, Virginia, you can artificially manipulate the emotions of your friends and family!
I was once told by an older gentleman that it is not a true family gathering unless one person leaves crying and another leaves in a huff.
There is a lot of truth in this humorous remark.
Family, by definition, are the people who you have to be with this time of year. When you put too many divergent personalities together in a room, there is bound to be friction. Now that the opening act of Thanksgiving is over and all of the relatives have safely returned home, it is time to gear up yet again for the main event: Christmas week. How does one adequately prepare for even more quality time as children, spouses, in-laws — and the occasional stray dog that always seems to end up as part of the scene — arrive? If that is not enough, this time you might even get snowed in with them.
This, straight from Temple’s Board of Trustrees.
NBC executives must be kicking themselves for not airing the live three-hour Sound of Music special during the all-important November ratings book. The ratings are the best Thursday night numbers that NBC has been able to garner since the days of Friends, Seinfeld and ER.
18.5 million homes were tuned to NBC primetime last night. The latest rendition of the 50-year-old Rogers and Hammerstein musical did especially well with young viewers. The live event got a 4.6 rating with those between 18-49, an elusive demographic for the networks. That is the best rating in that age range for NBC since the finale of Frasier in 2004.

Why anyone would ever ask for Rick Santorum’s opinion on Nelson Mandela is a mystery that, like the formation of Stonehenge and the assassination of John F. Kennedy, will be discussed generations from now. But for now, we have to accept that it happened on the O’Reilly Factor, and that Santorum responded thusly.
Starting next month, U.S. Rep Chaka Fattah gets his own twice-monthly television show.
Here at Philly Mag we’re especially invested in Hall & Oates. In fact, today is Hall & Oates Friday. Because every Friday is Hall & Oates Friday. Actually every day is Hall & Oates Day. Sorry, let me get to the point.
Oh my dear Wawa. I love your coffee. I love your hoagies. I love that I can leave my house and be at two of you within 10 minutes.
But you’re far from perfect. I hate that you closed down some of your shore locations because they couldn’t sell gas. I hate that you took so long to repair those shore Wawas after Sandy.
But most of all, I hate Wawa parking lots.
