Morning!

    TGIF, folks.

    You’ve made it through the week, and today on WHYY’s Morning Edition, you’ll get your reward.

    Here’s what we have for you:

    John Street in his golden years – getting all soft around the edges towards former adversaries except for one one of them: Mayor Nutter.

    A local writer wins a big time poetry prize, and Camden loses big time with major layoffs.

    Just in time for the winter season, an anti-snow dumping measure in New Jersey.

    Something to get you in the holiday spirit – a report on youngsters dancing in the Nutcracker ballet.

    And in case that doesn’t do it, we have a report on the official Christmas tree lighting at Philadelphia City Hall.

    All that and more, plus your local traffic and weather.
