PS Thursday

Revisiting some earlier topics...

I've been a LinkedIn member for quite some time, and I have yet to understand its value.  Something strange happened  recently.  I already had a ton of "contacts."  The number shot up when I replaced a simple "A" logo in my profile with a screen capture of me doing my thing on one of our weekend morning broadcasts.

I mean no disrespect to anyone involved, but nothing good happens when you get in a boat on a dark lake after midnight.

I am continually amazed at the crowd a casino can draw, even in the wee hours of the morning.

Jay Paterno, in a new book, says his father, Joe, committed no crime.  While that may be legally true, considerable evidence points to the fact that Joe had the power to stop a pedophile and did nothing.  According to the book, the elder Paterno didn't realize something was wrong until a grand jury investigated.  Please.  Stop now.

Updates on a couple of my habitual whines...

There's a spot in Luzerne County where Wendy's, McDonalds's and Burger King are on the same commercial strip.  Wendy's and McDonald's are 24 hour operations.  BK is not.  While stopped at a red light on a recent morning, I watched cars stream into the 24 hour joints, while BK was dark.  It can easily have a big slice of that pie.  By the way, I avoided them all.

While I was on vacation, I listened to a lot of the all news efforts on KYW in Philadelpia and WNEW in Washington/Baltimore.  Both kept the news going, even early on a Sunday morning.  Stations around here can barely fill a fraction of the day.
