More Unfinished Business

Today's blog is coming to you through my netbook and air card.  Comcast's internet service was a mess yesterday afternoon.

It doesn't help that Comcast has several Twitter accounts, and you can never be sure you're "following" the right one.

Speaking of Twitter, the PA Supreme Court announced it will be Tweeting rulings, and I was happy to hear that. 

I've been back on Twitter for a month now.  It was great during the flooding.  Now, it's back to its usual mediocre self.

A mini controversy erupted recently over the move to remove convicted crooked politicians from the dedication plaque at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport.  There weren't enough votes to pass the motion.  Here's an idea:  let's stop problems before they start.  Don't put politicians names on plaques.  Citizens and taxpayers foot the bill.  All the politicians do is spend the money.  There's no need for them to be on a plaque.

I'm saddened by the death of Indy Car driver Dan Wheldon.  Seeing pictures of his wife and two young children breaks your heart.  Unfortunately, one line keeps popping in to my head.  It's from Godfather II:  "This is the business we have chosen."  Dan Wheldon participated in a sport that can kill you.  It doesn't make his death less sad.
