The City Controller's Office has reviewed Philadelphia's two marketing agencies and concluded the city has one too many. A 38-page analysis found that lack of coordination, interagency friction, and administrative overlap between the city's two marketing arms was undercutting Philadelphia's ability to sell itself to visitors. Controller Alan Butkovitz recommended Tuesday that the city combine the two agencies - the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) and Visit Philadelphia - into a single entity.

LOS ANGELES - Never mind the world outside David Lynch's studio window: the sun beaming on the Hollywood Hills, the sprinklered lawns ringed by dry chaparral, the open-top tourist vans prowling for homes of stars. Stationed at his long desk, chain-smoking American Spirits, tossing the butts on the concrete floor, the celebrated filmmaker and artist is time-traveling to 1960s Philadelphia, recalling his 51/2 years in a city that seeped into his soul. The patina of grime-blackened buildings.

"And the emotions that go with it, just how we're a unique profession," Foles said in an interview with The Inquirer. "If you have one bad game, it's really going to be talked about. . . . I would ask them how they dealt with it when they had that bad game, when everybody was down on them, what they do. Because that's what I want to learn.

Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald will visit Philadelphia on Friday to meet with veterans, employees, and stakeholders at both the city's VA hospital and benefits office. The visit, announced Wednesday, is the third by a top agency official to Philadelphia in the last three months and comes as the city's VA system faces multiple controversies. Last week, the newly installed McDonald apologized and ordered a systemwide review of training programs in response to a guide at the city's benefits office that appeared to liken veterans to Oscar the Grouch.

Hello there Chris had just finished his second tour of duty in Iraq when his roommate at Honolulu's Schofield Barracks invited him to brunch with a group of soldiers from Schofield and nearby Tripler Army Medical Center. Amy, a critical-care nurse from Cherry Hill, was among the Tripler crew that late December morning in 2009. With 10 people around the table, Chris and Amy, both U.S. Army captains, exchanged only small talk. But that was enough for Amy to realize Chris was a nice guy, and notice his gorgeous hazel eyes.

Malcolm Jenkins didn't talk with Chip Kelly before he signed with the Eagles in March. The safety agreed to a contract less than an hour into free agency, so he wasn't afforded the opportunity to meet with his new coach. Jenkins had done his homework on Kelly and had reached out to Eagles players he knew before signing a three-year deal. But when he first sat down with Kelly, he wanted to know more about the coach's plan, and he wanted to know whether the Eagles were satisfied with just reaching the playoffs.

Day 2 of the Made in America festival turned soggy and briefly scary Sunday night, as lightning and heavy rain forced organizers to stop the music and make fans leave - then call them back when the weather improved. The come-and-go drama began shortly past 6:30 p.m., when drenching rains and flashes of lightning sent thousands of sopping concert-goers, some of them inebriated, out the gates and onto the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Some hopped into the Logan Square fountain. "If it's going to be canceled, you better make the most of it," a South Jersey teenager said before jumping in.
