Unfinished Wednesday

Scranton is having some parking garage structural issues.  As the city sees it, the mostly likely solution is cutting off the top decks and reducing capacity.  Isn't that typical Scranton?  Think small.

The man accused of robbing several businesses in the Pittston area admits he's a drug addict.  Heroin.  Cocaine.  Raise your hand if you're surprised.

I knew people outside of New England don't like Tom Brady, but the depth of the hatred is amazing.  He's an exceptionally talented man, but also a cheater and a whiner.

It is so nice to go through major stretches of winter without pre storm anxiety.

Presidential candidates have already debated several times, and there are more to come. Bravo!  Everyone benefits from an exchange of ideas   But, does anything new really come out of all those debates?

Pot Hole Season has arrived early.

An OJ Simpson mini series/movie is in the works.  It's dredging up memories of one of the sorriest episodes in American justice history.  Inept prosecutors.  A judge who lost control of his courtroom, and defense attorneys who took full advantage of it.

MSNBC apparently thinks Rachel Maddow and Brian Williams will made a good political anchor team.  NBC is trying to rehabilitate Williams into a trusted and impartial anchor.  Why saddle him with someone so opinionated and biased?

It's 2016, and some Iowa caucus results were decided by the flip of a coin.  Are you kidding me?  There has to be a better way.  I've been reading a lot of stuff that already anoints Ted Cruz as the Republican presidential nominee, based on one state.    Marco Rubio, who finished in third place, could be the big winner here.

It's strange to drive down on Wyoming Avenue in downtown Scranton and not see COLTS buses.  The hub is now at the new station, way out of the way, on Lackawanna Avenue.

We lost former state representative Tom Tigue the other day. Always nice to me.  Very professional.  Tigue served his country and his district.  My sympathy to family and friends.
