Wawa is Putting a Halt to Touchscreen Food Orders in Philly

Kevin Kinkead - March 27, 2020

This should have happened more than a week ago, right?

Were people really going into Wawa and touching the screen and ordering food, paying at the register, and then walking out the door? No wonder an employee at the Aramingo location tested positive for COVID-19.

Beasley Media Group Implementing Wage Cuts and Hour Reductions

Kevin Kinkead - March 27, 2020

It’s a rocky road for American businesses deemed non-essential during a pandemic.

Already we’ve seen a lot of staff and salary reductions at places like restaurants and retail shops, while sports team owners toss around ideas to limit expenses. The Sixers tried going down that road but received so much negative publicity that they decided to reverse course.

The struggle extends to terrestrial radio, and Beasley Media Group, which owns seven local stations including 97.5 the Fanatic and 93.3 WMMR, will be instituting wage cuts and hour reductions as a result of the economic Coronavirus pinch.

In an email sent to employees and obtained by Crossing Broad, CEO Caroline Beasley explains details of the strategy while informing staff that she will also be taking a pay cut:

Empty Philadelphia Hospital Remains Empty During Crisis

Kevin Kinkead - March 26, 2020

Hahnemann University Hospital closed down last year after owners filed bankruptcy just one year after purchasing it.

Here we are now, in the middle of a global pandemic, with a need for beds as Coronavirus patients begin to push other hospitals to the limits. Sounds like it might be the perfect time to get Hahnemann back up and running, but that’s not gonna happen, at least not right now.

Ridiculous: $35,000 Worth of Food Destroyed After Woman Purposefully Coughs On It

Kevin Kinkead - March 26, 2020

The disconcerting thing about this pandemic is behavior that we can’t control. Moron behavior.

You could be sitting at home right now, playing it safe, taking this seriously, and doing your part in helping society get through a difficult time. Then you get jabronies who come in and ruin it for everybody else, because they’re selfish and immature.

Coronavirus Shuts Down the Aramingo Avenue Wawa, Which Was a Mess to Begin With

Kevin Kinkead - March 26, 2020

I knew this was gonna happen.

If you’ve ever been to the Wawa on Aramingo Avenue, sandwiched between the Rite Aid and Applebee’s, you know how much of a shit show it is on a daily basis. You can walk into this place at any time of day and there will be at least 20 people in there buying cigarettes and food, loitering, panhandling, and doing whatever else people do at a Wawa. This location was enough of a mess that it earned a spot on the 2018 Worst of Philadelphia bracket.

Shouldn’t surprise anybody, then, that this location has now been closed down after an employee there tested positive for COVID-19, via CBS 3 Eyewitness News:

The Worst of Philadelphia, 2020 Edition: Final Four (With a Huge Upset)

Kevin Kinkead - March 25, 2020

We began with 16 and now we’re down to four.

Only one can be crowned the absolute worst of Philadelphia, and it’s getting pretty tight as the cream of the crop rises to the top. Three #1 seeds advanced to the Final Four on the strength of the general abhorrence they invoke, but we did have an Elite Eight upset, with a pre-tournament favorite being knocked out by a #3 seed in shocking fashion.

To the results:
