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....
