Well half of this is true at least – Ben Franklin and Betsy Ross have gotten hitched. I saw it yesterday before the Philly Pops concert. My girlfriend spotted the opportunity and we showed up for it. The pops played some great tunes – “Indiana Jones” theme (hers) and of course “Rocky” (mine). Mayor Nutter officiated on a platform in front of Independence Hall.

Actually Ben & Betsy are pretty decomposed by now, 300 years after they roamed these streets. This couple is the closest resemblance we have to them. I heard they met on match.com.
