The Hook

Mission accomplished -- destroying a once-thriving community in Delaware County:

Sunoco Inc. chief executive Lynn L. Elsenhans will step down March 1, marking the end of the Philadelphia oil company's tumultuous four-year makeover from a manufacturer into a pared-down retailer and transporter of fuel....

"She was brought here to do something, she did it and now she's going," said Jim Savage, president of United Steelworkers Local 10-1, which represents workers at the Philadelphia refinery. "I know a couple thousand people who wouldn't mind helping her pack."
