The new Fairmount Park Commission has barely had time to get their seats warm. Still, the commission will now have to referee yet another messy Philadelphia political fight.
This fight card features former Congressman Tom Foglietta vs. long-time rival State Sen. Vince Fumo and a group of Korean war veterans. The veterans recently unveiled a new Penn's Landing memorial in honor of those who died in the Korean conflict. One problem: They want the plaza where the memorial is located renamed from Foglietta Plaza to Korean War Memorial Plaza. Fumo is backing their request to the park commission.
