    Howdy!

    My name is Marion. My friends and colleagues call me "Ski".

    I'm a Philadelphia police officer patroling the 25th District also know as the Badlands. We call it the Land of Oz, where the abnormal is normal.

    I graduated the academy in March of 2007 and have a whole two and a half years on the job.

    I joined here a couple of years ago, under a different screen name, before I became a cop. Read a lot, but didn't post much.

    I learned about this site from Kate, whom I met on Domelights. That site has been my home for the past four years and was recently suspended. Hopefully only temporarily. I miss it terribly and am suffering from complete and utter withdrawal.

    The moderators of this site are in the process of getting me verified, so in the meantime I wanted to introduce myself.

    So far everyone I had contact with has been extremely nice, helpful and welcoming. I look very much forward to being here with you guys and girls.

    Thank you for having me.

    Captain America, have not been there myself yet, but I heard from Mike Dimone & several others this place is Aces. So if you are ever in the Philly area you got to visit Geno's, good eats and police friendly.

    I'm indeed aware of Geno's , 2 Blue. One of these days I intend to book a trip to Philly and conduct a fact finding mission for the purpose of seeing who has the best cheesesteaks. Geno's will be my first stop. I also want to conduct a similar investigation in NYC in an effort to uncover who has the best hotdogs , Nathan's, Papaya King or some other establishment. Perhaps you could assist me with my investigation?

    Welcome! Great to have you here! This is an excellent site run by a large and very active Site Staff consisting entirely of LEOs who volunteer their time out of devotion for the site. Bring some of your other friends from your other site that went down.
