President Obama was in Philadelphia yesterday and during his visit he wisely made time for a quick trip to John’s Water Ice at 7th and Christian in Bella Vista.

What flavor did the President go with? He ordered a lemon water ice and said to admirers: “I love being in Philly. Especially when I’ve got ice like this.”

Well said, Mr. President.
