Reporter Clark DeLeon, one of the few people who can identify Pennsylvania's state dog (Great Dane), has constructed a suitably raucous guide to the Keystone State's most wacky and outrageous people, weirdest places, and most bizarre events. Some of these oddities have earned their new immortality: One thinks especially of Dirty Frank's Bar on 13th and Pine in Philadelphia and the Archbald pothole, the only pothole to have a state park named after it.
