NOT JUST THE CITY OF MURALS ANYMORE:  On top of Philadelphia's impending Joe Frazier statue—because real boxing champions deserve at least as much love as fictional ones—comes word that two true local heroes will soon be honored in bronze: William "Wild Bill" Guarnere and the recently deceased Edward "Babe" Heffron, both of Easy Company legend.

[In 2001, both men were profiled by Philadelphia Magazine as they visited the Band of Brothers filming.]

    Aw, too bad the Frazier statue won't be up until April; I'll have to wait for next Thanksgiving to check it out.
