30th St. it stays, not 'Ben' Station

30th Street Station will continue to be known as 30th Street Station. The Pew Charitable Trusts, the philanthropy that launched a behind-the-scenes effort to rename the station in honor of Benjamin Franklin for this year's birthday bash, yesterday said it was abandoning the campaign.

I thought this was not a great idea anyway. They say Pew bowed to public objections that have persisted in Philadelphia newspapers and local airwaves since The Inquirer revealed the plan in December.
