Roxborough Not Happy About Proposed Wendy’s

Um, don’t you know who comes to Wendy’s in Philadelphia?

Last week, more than 50 Roxboroughans (Roxbros?) boarded a rented yellow school bus and headed to a zoning hearing to voice their displeasure over the proposed construction of a Wendy’s at the corner of Ridge and Roxborough. (Where the historic Bunting House used to sit before it was demolished.) They, along with Councilman Curtis Jones and other neighborhood poobahs, would prefer something a little more locally-sourced in its stead. To which I say: You want Kimye coming to visit your neighborhood or not? That’s what I thought.
