Letter of the week

Much of the reader email we get is angry. A bit of the email is kind.

And then there's this gem sent this weekend to a few Inquirer reporters.


I am a big fan of your paper, as a new yorker I always pick one up at penn station.

I have a question for you, a few of my friends,from the philly area mentioned to me that at night there actually is a batsignal over police headquarters.

I was under the impression they were kidding but them seemed sincere; is there really a batsignal seen in your town at nights every so often ?

Thank you;


A bat signal! If only!
