In the Philadelphia Inquirer Saturday reViews an article by David Hiltbrand places Homer Simpson in the Keystone State.
"There has been a great deal of speculation lately about where The Simpsons Movie, due in July, should hold its premiere. Obviously, it should be in Marge and Homer's ancestral home of Springfield. But exactly which Springfield? Almost every state has one. (Heck, we have several in the Philadelphia area alone.)
Well, this week's episode provided conclusive proof that the true Springfield is in Pennsylvania. Marge's sister Selma Bouvier, is the director of the town's department of motor vehicles. One of her underlings informs her of a looming crisis: "The new traffic cones are being held up in Harrisburg."
Ha! Give us our red-carpet event. We'll bring the doughnuts."
Thank you Mr. Hiltbrand for giving us another Pennsylvania claim to fame.
Davey Crockett would be proud.
