:: irony ::

i saw this logo today at the plymouth meeting mall today (a large suburban mall about 20 mins from philadelphia)... this emblem is representing one of the original department store locations for the strawbridge and clothier corporation... the eastern united states store is now part of macys ... strawbridge and clothier was started by two quakers living in philadelphia.... the philadelphia area is the US home of the peace church... although william penn and the other quaker colonizers are known for their extreme piety and uprightness i still find the emblem ironic given what is known to have transpired between the colonizing peoples and the native americans... would not be a seal of confidence i would put my trust in...
