Comeback for Philly Factories

Now wait a minute ... Billy Joel said they were closing all those down

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia reported yesterday that manufacturing activity is booming in the Mid-Atlantic region, with big boosts for factories in hiring, ordering and shipments. To which the Scoop says: Great news! Now, what factories are those again? (He would have said, “McDonald’s is a burger factory, right?” But someone already made that comment on WSJ. See? Business execs are funny too!)
