Midwinter in the City of Brotherly Love

When I was younger, the show “Angie” was quintessentially Philadelphian, at least in my mind. Enjoy the opening credits and late 70s/early 80s scenes from this “classic” TV sitcom while I give my tentative schedule of events at ALA Midwinter in Philadelphia this weekend. I hope to live tweet (twitter.com/mciszek) and blog throughout the weekend.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I can see that being a Council member sure eats up a lot of time.
