Tuesday Scrapple

I wonder if I'll live long enough to see the size of the Pennsylvania legislature reduced.  As it stands now, it is one of the biggest and costliest in the nation.

I was watching Letterman Thursday night when they ran full credits and Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra played the entire theme.  It blew me away.

The Casey Kasem situation makes me sad.  No one wants to go out that way.

Don Zimmer passed away last week.  He was the definition of what a baseball coach should be.

The Allentown area is getting a Costco and Whole Foods.  The Lehigh Valley seems to be much more affluent than most of northeastern Pennsylvania, so it gets expanding retailers first.

Here we go again-- another scandal.  This time, it's the LCTA.  First, when will people learn?  Second, this further cements our area as one of the most scandal ridden in the state.  We're giving Philadelphia a good run for its money.

Those 15 workers fired from General Motors due to inaction in the faulty ignition switch problem are lucky they only lost their jobs.  They should be in jail.  People died, and they did nothing to stop it.

Philadelphia wants to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention.  Cleveland and Columbus are also in the running.  Philadelphia makes sense.  Ohio is really important to both sides, so I'm guessing Cleveland and Columbus have the edge.  Cleveland has been struggling.  Do the Democrats really want to go there, and show off a depressed city, after a Democratic president has been in office for eight years?
