  • * Log Cabin, Sept. 4, 1914 - “New Post Office on Walnut Street - Inspector’s Secret Gallery, a long narrow gallery extending across above the main work room with only small ‘peep’ holes or openings with black shutters, enabling an inspector to see every employee in the office without himself being seen. A passage leads from the gallery to the basement. An inspector may therefore enter the secret passage either from the basement or from the second floor, without being seen by any office employee.” (Present site of Whalen’s Real Estate)

  •  When my kids were little they used to ask me, “Who do you like best?”
    There’s really no way to answer that. How can you say, “Some days you and some days your sister”?
    Or: “Neither of you when you’re fighting with each other over hair scrunchies.”
    Even the standard “I like both of you equally” doesn’t satisfy a child’s question about who’s Mom’s favorite.
