The Pope is Coming

Many people are sprucing up the Quaker City. Everything must appear clean and pretty. They anticipate the last weekend in September. That will be one all of Philadelphia will remember. Countless visitors will be Philly bound. Not one vacant hotel room in the city will be found. There may be some difficulty for commuters to get around. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority will be selling train passes to a select few by lottery. Restaurants and stores are expecting a boom in business. What do you think will be the cause of all of this? Philadelphia will be visited by Pope Francis.

    It will be an amazing sight. I saw Pope John Paul when he visited Chicago in the 80's. The crowds were huge.I know there were upwards of a million people in Grant park. Good to see you Robert...Tim
