Top Ten: Demolition and Target

The Hotel Sterling in Wilkes-Barre was demolished in late July.

The landmark was always in rough shape.  Years of bungling plans for redevelopment didn't help.  It was all so sad.

This photo was taken around 6:30 AM on July 27th, as a major part of the back of the building fell away.

Moving on...

Target was the victim of a massive security breach.  Millions of credit card numbers were hacked.  Target appears to be making an attempt to fix things.  I don't visit all that often, but I do enjoy my stops there.  I can understand how something like this can happen, but why did it take three weeks to figure out there was a problem?
