The Kensington storefront [in Philadelphia] recognizable to fans of the Rocky movie franchise as Adrian's fictional pet store was unceremoniously demolished Thursday, according to a city tour guide. Ben Caplan, who routinely leads tourists to the movie's filming locations throughout the city, said that when he took sightseers to 2146 N. Front Street, he found construction workers dismantling the three-story building. "I was getting ready to tell these people, 'Well, hey, across the street is the --' and then I looked over and saw a big bulldozer," said Caplan, who has been giving Rocky tours for just over a year. ... Four of the seven Rocky movies -- including Rocky, Rocky II, Rocky V, and Rocky Balboa -- shot scenes in the building's first-floor commercial space. In the film, the store was home to the pet shop where Adrian worked and where the title character bought two turtles, Cuff and Link, as well as a 140-pound bull mastiff, Butkus.

"He's playing a character," Wilhite said of Jones. "He is a performance artist." But in emotional testimony at the hearing, Kelly Jones, who is seeking to gain sole or joint custody of her three children with Alex Jones, portrayed the volcanic public figure as the real Alex Jones. "He's not a stable person," she said of the man with whom her 14-year-old son and 9- and 12-year-old daughters have lived since her 2015 divorce.
Donald Trump can forget his populist image after news broke today about a private, invitation-only Easter Egg Roll held for the rich and powerful at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
Trump has already come under heavy criticism for the lack of planning done for the traditional Easter Egg Roll that has taken place at the White House every Easter Monday since 1878. Planning for the event is usually supervised by the First Lady, but since Melania has been largely absent from the White House grounds, the event has been thrown together at the last minute...
