Bad Photography Monday: JT


I've been a "professional" broadcaster since 1981, and in that time, I must have made dozens of visits to Jim Thorpe.

In that time, I've never had the time nor the opportunity to spend a few moments taking a good look at the Jim Thorpe memorial along Route 903.  That ended on a recent fall morning.

The weather was perfect, and the site offers a mini history lesson.  If you're in the neighborhood, you really should stop by.  A visit doesn't take long.

In spite of the beauty of the site, I can't help but wonder if Thorpe would be happier back home in Oklahoma.

His family filed suit to force the move.  Avoid the nasty fight.  Thank the family for having Thorpe here for nearly sixty years, and bid a fond farewell.
