It was supposed to be a quick trip to the King of Prussia mall Sunday to pick out clothes for a funeral. It ended with an escort off mall property after a clash of individual expression and corporate sensibilities. At issue were black caps worn by two sisters - Zakia and Tasha Clark of North Philadelphia - mourning the loss of their mother, Jackie Underwood, to cancer May 14. The hats were imprinted with "F- Cancer" in pink, with a breast-cancer-awareness ribbon taking the place of the letter C . A security guard approached the two sisters, who were with a third sibling, Makia Underwood, while they were eating in the food court, and told them in no uncertain terms to remove the hats or leave.

I THOROUGHLY enjoy Solomon Jones' Saturday columns. They are refreshing, real and a great reminder about situations that fit into everyday lives, help bring stressful moments into perspective, and are great to relax with over a cup of coffee. Drew M. Brochet Sr. King of Prussia

Call it the battle of the malls. David takes on Goliath. The upstart four-year-old Willow Grove Park mall vs. the granddaddy mall, the largest shopping center in the nation, the King of Prussia complex, which includes the Court and its adjacent sister mall, the Plaza. It is an unlikely matchup of retail wrestling between a young challenger and the champ in an industry not noted for public spats between competitors. In one corner, Willow Grove weighs in with 135 stores, while King of Prussia stands on the other side of the ring with about 350 stores.
