I'VE BEEN ASKING myself for awhile now if I should risk a column on Griffin Campbell, the contractor behind bars for the deadly June 2013 building collapse on Market Street. I don't want him to appear overly deserving of our sympathy when six families are still mourning the loved ones they lost on that day. But other families are also feeling the pain, and that includes Campbell's. First let me say Campbell, even beyond his involvement in the collapse, has lived a life that has hardly been a model.

An unseasonable winter storm bore down on the region Wednesday, scuttling scores of airline flights and snarling traffic on one of the busiest travel days of the year. During the afternoon hours, when many Thanksgiving travelers might normally climb into their cars, snow had started to blanket the northern and western suburbs, with as much as eight inches forecast for the hardest-hit areas. Police reported scores of minor car accidents. Gov. Christie declared a state of emergency in New Jersey, and by 6:30 p.m., 169 flights had been canceled and hundreds more delayed at Philadelphia International Airport.
