Neighbors described a terrifying scene following a blast yesterday that caused the collapse of three row homes on the 400 block of Daly Street in the Whitman section of South Philadelphia. “I thought it was an earthquake tremor like the one we had last year,” said Star Brown, who lives just two doors away from one of the properties. “But this was like a big boom. My heart was beating really fast, and I was afraid to come outside. I thought maybe we were under attack.” She said the property at 428 Daly St. apparently folded in on itself, bringing down neighboring homes at 426 and 430 Daly St. Brown said she saw a young couple emerge from one of the homes carrying a baby. “They came out with dirt all over them,” she recalled. “I heard an explosion,” said Kathryn Logan, who lives around the corner. “I thought it was two cars that crashed.” When she walked over to investigate, Logan said, she saw chaos. “There was dust everywhere,” she said. “I went around there and saw a lady running with her baby.

Five adults and two children were hospitalized and released yesterday. One man, a contractor working inside 428 Daly St., was placed in critical condition with burns covering about 20 percent of his body. The home at 428 Daly St. was purchased in March by SCK Investments LLC, according to city property records, which further show permits were issued in April for renovations including

Analysis

Is No. 5 a Hall of Famer? Donovan McNabb retired as the Eagles’ all-time leader in every significant passing category. His career numbers are better than Hall of Famers Terry Bradshaw and Roger Staubach. Unlike them, he never won a Super Bowl. McNabb is the ultimate fringe candidate for Canton. Our opinion is that he falls short of induction. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve entry. If McNabb had a vote, well, you know. “Everyone kind of talks about numbers, and my numbers are close to what is required to get in there,” McNabb said. “If that’s the decision, then that’s the decision — if I had a vote, I would vote [for me].”

PHILADELPHIA

Emotional McNabb thrilled to have his number retired Unexpected. The former quarterback fought back tears as the Eagles made a surprise announcement. This was the Donovan McNabb Eagles fans had been clamoring for during his decade-plus in green. On the day the franchise decided to immortalize him by retiring his number, McNabb let his emotions swell. The Hoover Dam couldn’t have stopped this one. After stirring speeches from team owner Jeffrey Lurie and former teammates Brian Westbrook and Brian Dawkins, McNabb was fighting back tears as he thanked the organization for everything.

McNabb was emotional during his speech. / RIKARD LARMA, METRO Quoted

“We all want to be superheroes when it comes to our kids or our grandkids, and now my kids will look at it like dad was a superhero and that’s something special.” McNabb

He’ll be honored Sept. 19 when the Eagles take on the Chiefs. No player will wear No. 5 again. It was a rare sight for McNabb, a player often criticized in this blue-collar town for not wearing his emotions on his sleeve. “I even shed a tear or two; how about that?” McNabb said yesterday. “The one thing I told Dawk when he did his speech was no crying, and then I get up there and you know.” The Eagles have only retired eight other numbers in the franchise’s 81-year history. The announcement came as a shock considering how the two sides parted ways, coupled with his love-hate relationship with Philly fans. Look at the numbers and it’s hard not to put the greatest quarterback in franchise history on

a giant pedestal. Lurie summed it up best. “A franchise-changing player,” Lurie said. “Very rare. You’d like to have them every year, you’d like to draft them every year, but it’s rare, and I think that’s the definition for retiring a number for this franchise.” Making the honor extra special is that former coach Andy Reid will be in the house when No. 5 goes up into the rafters. McNabb and Reid will forever be linked, like Jim Kelly and Marv Levy, according to the quarterback. “Eleven great years,” McNabb said. “We’ll forever be linked together, but one of the things I can honestly say, ‘We made history, big fella.’”

1917-2013. Former Pa. Gov. William Scranton died Sunday at age 96

Plunged. Darby woman, 21, dies in Kelly Drive crash

William Warren Scranton, Pennsylvania’s 38th governor who served from 1963 to 1967, died Sunday night at a retirement community in California. He was 96. Scranton — heir to a railroad and utility fortune and a descendant of Mayflower colonists and the founders of Scranton, Pa. — served as a United States congressman, an ambassador to the United Nations and a presidential nominee. Gov. Tom Corbett ordered all state flags lowered to half-staff in his honor. “Governor Scranton was a world-class leader in government,” Corbett said in a statement. “He will be remembered as a man of humility, honesty, dignity and integrity.’’ He is survived by his wife and three children.

A 21-year-old Delaware County woman died late Sunday night after she swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle on Kelly Drive in Philadelphia and plunged into the Schuylkill River, police said. An unnamed male passenger allegedly escaped the sinking Toyota. He swam to the river’s bank and called for help,

A human touch in higher ed Learn first. Author Mark Edmundson encourages students to discover themselves through the humanities before choosing a career. With an ever-increasing focus on job readiness in college classrooms, author Mark Edmundson sometimes seems like higher education’s firebrand moral preacher — goading

“A good humanities education is the key to finding out who you are,” according to Mark Edmundson. / PROVIDED

faculty and administrators to repent and embrace their traditional values. But his latest book, “Why Teach? In Defense of a Real Education,” is a distinctly practical argument for what is often thought of as an idealist, impractical approach to education. “There’s a lot of pressure on students to approach college from a preprofessional standpoint, but I think that’s a mistake, especially for young people,” says Edmundson from his office at the University of Virginia. “You’ve gone through high school and a lot of people have told you who you are — teachers, guidance counselors, parents. And maybe you are that person, and that destiny is right for you. But it’s possible you’re not. Perhaps what you really want to do with your life is something your parents and teachers could have never anticipated, and you yourself have no idea about it either. … A

good humanities education is key to discovering who you are.” If there’s anything a good old-fashioned liberal arts education instills, it’s skepticism. And Edmundson encourages students to embrace an extremely skeptical view of schools and programs that focus on workplace preparedness. “I think it’s only natural for American business people to want universities to be a feeder for the workplace — to create really good and responsive workers. But I don’t think that’s the primary purpose of education,” he says. “My students may still go off and work [in business] and that might be a good thing for them, but I want them to think in a critical way about what it means to be a success in business or academia or any other field.”

Aniston feels married Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been engaged for nearly a year, but don’t expect a wedding anytime soon, as Aniston says they “already feel married,” according to ABC News. “We just want to do it when it’s perfect.” As for all the rumors about strife over planning the big day? “We have yet to set any dates. There have been no canceled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings,” she says.

And while on the subject of ‘Friends’ ... While talk of a “Friends” reunion movie may be dead in the water, stars Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow admit they wish the show hadn’t gone off the air when it did. “If I had a time machine, I would like to go back to 2004 and not have stopped,” says Perry, sitting in for Piers Morgan on his show, with Kudrow serving as his guest. Kudrow agrees: “If it were up to us, you know, individually, then yes. I would keep going,” she says. “There would have come a time when someone would have said, ‘We’ve had enough.’ But why not have fun until they do?”

Lea Michele posts heartbreaking photo, message ments, as well as dealing with the “Glee” cast and crew. Showrunner Ryan Murphy said that the show is opting to go back into production as soon as possible, thanks to Michele, whom he says “was very adamant that she thought it was best for the cast and crew to get back together sooner [rather] than later so that mortgages could be paid and people could take care of their families. ... She felt people really needed to be together in this time.”

Two weeks after the tragic death of her boyfriend and “Glee” costar, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele posted a message on Twitter along with this gutwrenching photo of the two of them taken shortly before Monteith died from a drug overdose. “Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support,” she wrote. “Cory will forever be in my heart.” Michele has been busy helping Monteith’s family with his funeral arrange-

“Forever, Interrupted” is every newlywed’s nightmare. Tucked into a blissful new life after marrying your best friend, your new spouse will bike to the corner store to buy you Fruity Pebbles, simply because getting you what you’re craving brings him or her joy. In this novel, however, the joy is short-lived: Elsie Porter loses her husband, Ben, nine days after they elope following a whirlwind romance. Ping-ponging between her crippling crawl back to whatever a “normal” life might be and the early days of their courtship, the book is a brisk read despite the heavy subject matter. In the book, Elsie and her mother-in-law (who Ben procrastinated telling about Elsie’s existence)

come to terms with losing him, including whether leaving rancid hot dogs in the fridge honors him. Taylor Jenkins Reid tells us why she chose to wreck her characters’ lives in her debut novel. How did you get the idea to do this book? I eloped a couple of years ago, almost five years ago. I only knew my husband for four months before we got married. Obviously getting married in general is a rush of emotions, sort of a crazy time, but to do that with someone you just met, I was very overwhelmed. … [I started thinking,] “What happens if I lose all of this? What happens if he dies?” I just became very, very fearful of something crazy happening and me losing him. Around the same time, I knew I wanted to sit down and start writing a book. My brain had been focused on all of these terrifying things. I thought, “Why

a wife’s deepest fears don’t I explore this and find out if there’s a story here?”

Q&A

This is your first book. Did anything surprise you about the writing process? I had this whole idea when I sat down. I was like, “This is going to happen and then this is going to happen and then this is going to happen.” You start writing,

In what ways did the story, then, parallel your own life? We told our parents really soon, my mother immediately. She sort of saw it coming. His family knew very, very soon after. My husband, Alex, doesn’t have the relationship with his family that Ben has with Susan in the book, where he’s trying to protect them. … It was completely shocking to them, and it forced all of us to become a family instantly. I think that’s a very interesting dynamic.

and you suddenly realize that all of the things that you thought might happen, that’s not going to work now that you’ve sat down with the character and started to write. You’ve gotten to know her, you’re like, “She would never do this, that would never happen.” for her, it was really easy for me to write because it was basically writing my worst fears on paper. These were things that I had mulled over in my head, and they were second nature to me. If Alex was 25 minutes late coming home from something, my brain was already going, “What if this is it? What if it’s happening now?” Getting to those places where she’s realizing what she’s lost was sort of finally letting out all these thing that had been driving me

The unimaginable sorrow is really vivid. Did you lose someone yourself, or how did you get into that space? This fear had been so real and almost visceral for me. Getting to those places, writing the scene when she actually loses Ben and it’s all sinking in

Are you a mom? Are you overweight and want to lose weight?

insane. I didn’t sit down to write it to make myself feel better about things I was afraid of. I sat down to write it because I had a good story. When I was done, I definitely had a feeling of, “I’ve let that go.” So it sounds like writing this helped allay some of your initial fears. It did. I just assumed when I started to write the book, “OK, this woman loses her husband, and her life is going to be terrible from now into eternity, and nothing is ever going to make her feel better.” That’s what I thought the story I was writing was. As I started to write it … You lose your husband and it’s terrible and it’s awful, but at some point you put two feet on the floor and you get out of bed. That’s what has to happen.

‘Bizarre Foods’ in America

TV. Andrew Zimmern says you don’t have to look too far for a succulently strange meal.

Top 5

Best craft breweries

TRAVEL

www.metro.us Tuesday, July 30, 2013

It takes more than a unique dish to pique Andrew Zimmern’s interest. And for a fourth season, the “Bizarre Foods America” host finds himself roaming between California and New York (with a detour to our northern neighbor). Why, having traveled all over the world, eating everything from “bleeding rocks” in Chile to eggplant custard in Greece, is he keeping it local? “To me, it’s all about great stories; great stories that we were overlooking,” he explains. “The beauty of America is that it’s a country of immigrants. I think there are more stories here from the fringe and foods from other cul-

tures than anywhere else in the world. I don’t know whether I eat to travel or travel to eat, but to me they’re not two strands of spaghetti in a dish; they are the same noodle.” Now that we’re all hungry, where does Zimmern recommend you call ahead before packing your bags this summer?

Providence, R.I.: “It’s a brilliant city to be eating through right now.” One to try: Farmstead’s award-winning burger, with polenta fries (www.farmsteadinc.com)

restaurant.” One to try: Get there and ask for anything with pork.

Houston, Texas: “There is an internationalist, global food influence going on.” One to try: Korean goat dumplings at Underbelly (www.underbellyhouston. com) Toronto, Ontario: “I always love the place I just came from. Right now, I am overwhelmed by a place called King’s Noodle, an incredible Chinese

Portland, Ore.: “I do think the DIY food movement in Portland is extraordinary.” One to try: Xocolatl de David’s foie gras-infused chocolate (www.xocolatl dedavid.com) Pickled herring at Farmstead in Providence, R.I., where the menu “changes frequently to reflect the nuances and spirit of the season, the restaurant says on its website.” / PROVIDED

Good eats

How to choose a bizarre food Getting in is only the beginning. Wherever you find yourself at a table in the world, what’s the golden rule of choosing the right thing?

“If I go to a sushi bar, I don’t order the yakitori [grilled chicken]. I go to eat the food that’s expert in those places,” Zimmern says. Look for restaurants that change their menus with the season, with ingredients harvested at

their peak freshness. Or, you can always put your decision in the hands of the people who know the menu best. “I like to talk to the people in the restaurants: ‘What’s the restaurant loving to cook right now?’”

Cheaters can still prosper

Re: ‘Weiner not held in high regard’ (Metro, July 29) Back in 1955, singer Frank Sinatra was embroiled in a heated argument over the way columnist/emcee Ed Sullivan paid performers on his very popular “Toast of the Town” TV show. Sinatra put an ad in Billboard magazine that said “Dear Ed ... You’re Sick, Sick, Sick!” The same might apply to Anthony Weiner and Elliot Spitzer, whose records of sexual improprieties and philandering are public record. They should not cause any further embarrassment to their families and political affiliation. I implore Weiner and Spitzer to seek help because indeed they are sick, sick, sick!

Re: ‘Weiner not held in high regard’ (Metro, July 29) What does a man cheating on his wife have to do with the way he runs the city? People are so quick to judge others. Whatever happened to forgive and forget? Also, what has he done that hasn’t been good for the city while in office? I could care less what he does and does not do with his wife. How many men have cheated? Maybe they shouldn’t be able to obtain a job either? The women would probably be for that. OWEN DUNCAN, VIA EMAIL

Trade rumors heat up The trading deadline is tomorrow and the Phillies’ rumors are ying. The team is reportedly listening to oers for Cli Lee, but the price is steep.

PHILLIES PLAYING GAME OF CUBAN ROULETTE The dawning of a new era for the Phillies came not with a blockbuster trade or a spectacular firing. It happened when the team put $48 million on one spin of the roulette wheel and prayed for red. Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez agreed to terms on a six-year deal that charted a whole new direction for the Phillies. A 26-year-old Cuban refugee with a blistering fastball but an ordinary pitching repertoire, Gonzalez should be joining the rotation next month, ready or not. His acquisition was shocking, especially since the Phils had never invested more than $1.2 million on any international signing prior to this move. It was also stunning because of the team they outbid for Gonzalez, the free-spending Red Sox. Indeed, the Phils are playing with the big boys now. Hurrah for that. More important than the money or the bidding competition was the primary motive. Signing Gonzalez was good for business. The Phils will be taking bids soon on a mega-billion-dollar TV deal, and they simply cannot permit the rotten baseball being broadcast this season to continue. They must remain relevant. So GM Ruben Amaro,

unable to build a young foundation through trades and the draft, forced a new superstar (he hopes) onto the roster the oldfashioned way, by buying him. If Gonzalez is the next Yasiel Puig, it is the best money Amaro has ever spent. If Gonzalez is no more than a third starter — as a majority of scouts project — it could never be as big a disaster as the Ryan Howard deal. Where Amaro takes the team from here will be clearer in the next 36 hours, when the trading deadline finally passes. Did the Phils sign Gonzalez because they plan to

Maclin injury hurts, but Kelly brings new hope The Eagles suffered a horrendous injury when Jeremy Maclin tore his ACL, and still it was a good weekend for the Eagles. Such is life in the first year under Chip Kelly, the maestro of optimism. Maclin was the best wide receiver on the roster. DeSean Jackson does all the rap videos and the tweeting, but Maclin has been more reliable. In fact, Maclin has averaged 10 more catches a year than Jackson, venturing into the dangerous area over the middle that Jackson so obviously avoids. How will Kelly absorb this blow? Somehow, we all know he will. There is just something about the new coach that inspires confidence, in his players

Idle thoughts

•

Kansas City coach Andy Reid didn’t call a single running play in the ďŹ rst two days of camp. This was treated as big news in the Midwest. Here, it wasn’t news.

•

In a lame attempt to stay relevant, Donovan McNabb retired after taking a shot at me, by name, in a print interview. Well, here’s my response: Keep my name outcha mouth!

and in the fans. That’s why 30,000 people turned out Sunday at the Linc for their formal introduction to the football visionary

from Oregon. As Kelly himself told me last week during an interview, hey, he hasn’t even coached a game yet. Let’s not go crazy here. It is way too early to draw any real conclusions about the direction of the Eagles under a man who has never coached, in any capacity, in the NFL. And yet, it is already clear that Kelly speaks our language so much better than Andy Reid ever did. Kelly has a style that invites the free exchange of opinions, with some humor mixed in. So far, it’s love at first sight for Kelly and Eagles fans. Maclin is lost for the season, but the Eagles are not. Thank you, Chip Kelly. ANGELO CATALDI

Sixers apologize — for now

2006 Chrysler 300 C

Eight months after Andrew Bynum hurt his brittle knees bowling and three months after his flamenco-dancing debacle, Sixers fans got the apology they deserved. It wasn’t a gushing mea culpa, but it will have to do. When new CEO Scott O’Neil called my WIP radio show after one of my many public rants over the fan-unfriendly nature of the Sixers, we agreed to air our grievances. He stopped in the studio the next morning and spoke openly and coherently. The key moment in our exchange came when

Everyone in the Sixers’ organization has abused Sixer fans long enough.

Bynum stole cash. / GETTY IMAGES

I referenced the idiotic, insulting plea by Doug Collins for fans to pray for Bynum after the lazy center stole $17 million. Then I demanded an

apology. “I apologize on behalf of the Sixers to any fan who invested and thought Bynum was going to be their guy and be the savior,’’ O’Neil replied, off the cuff. Well, hallelujah. O’Neil was not in Philadelphia for any of the Bynum disaster, having joined the clueless front office only two weeks ago. And the slick PR man followed up his apology by saying the Sixers will continue to make

aggressive moves. Blah, blah, blah. Everyone in the Sixers’ organization — from former CEO/clown Adam Aron to socially awkward owner Joshua Harris to paranoid new GM Sam Hinkie — has abused the Sixer fans long enough. O’Neil’s apology shouldn’t mark an end to the Bynum mess; it should represent the beginning of a time when the customers finally get the respect they deserve. ANGELO CATALDI
