    Ok...thanks to USEless Airways, I am now stuck here for at least 8 hours...do I
    A-find Alycia Lane's house and see if she will model her bikini for me
    B-lay on the floor of F terminal and cry like one of my kids
    C-Find where Ron Jaworski lives and go find out how he really feels about Kornheiser
    D-Go find a Geno's cheesteak, order it, look at it and scream "CHEEZ WHIZ?"
    E-Take the train to Center City, go to the Liberty Bell and bang my head repeatedly on it because I fly USAir on a regular basis

    Definitely. All five.

    FYI, I believe Jaws lives in South Jersey.

    And eat the cheesesteak.

    Of all the airports . . . a lot of nothingness in any direction. I vote for sweet-talking your way into an airline's frequent flyer lounge, then drinking heavily.

    Oh, and while you're at the airport, find the exact line that separates Philadelphia from Delaware County.

    Hard to believe that of two people working on different ends of the airport, one gets boned with having to pay Philadelphia city taxes and the other doesn't. It's true. :p

    Jaws used to live in South Jersey. I don't know if he still does.
    Go to Pat's, not Geno's.
    Two oft-overlooked Philly gems: Mutter Museum and Harry's Occult Bookstore.

    There's a colonial fort close to the airport, too. The name escapes me at the moment.

    Equipment repair?

    Compulsory crew rest period?

    Outrageously late incoming flight?

    4 PM to midnight is rough -- curious as to the reason>.

    Oh man. The Mutter Museum is sick.
