PIAA facing critical dilemma

This little screwup illustrates for me the silliness that this Nation engages in over its sports. We erect temples / stadiums to games and pay intellectual midgets / ath-a-letes large fortunes to bash the Hell out of each other for our weekend enjoyment. Joe Paterno earns more than any Penn State faculty member, including the School of Medicine. Maybe it's time to put the education back into schools and relegate sports to where they belong-- an off-hours form of healthy entertainment. There is precisely _zero_ chance of this happening here in this dumb Commonwealth, and children will suffer because of their parents' obsession with playing games. I guess we get the leadership we deserve.  (Jul 6, 2011 | post #4)

The York Daily Record

YDR Opinion: Independents double-crossed by cross-filing

Valid point but essentially whining on behalf of people who are too [whatever] to register and vote. Who needs their silent voices in a democracy?  (May 31, 2011 | post #19)

Palin goes incognito in Gettysburg

Courtesy of Beavis & Butt-head: when people attempt to disguise their true identity, they are traveling "in burrito". Too bad these boys aren't around anymore to take advantage of this major bimbo's adventures.  (May 31, 2011 | post #50)

Corbett lawyers target open-records 'uncertainty'

"Transitory " means potentially embarrassing or possible evidence to be used against you in court proceedings for improper activity. Good legal advice, but bad public policy. Why not do it the old way by gathering your deputies privately and telling them to spread the _unwritten_ word that fools who write too much are risking their jobs.  (May 31, 2011 | post #1)

Housing optimism

You've got to admire someone who confidently pimps and spins for price-fixing realtors in the face of news today that home prices have reached a new bottom for the Great Recession.  (May 31, 2011 | post #1)

Voter fraud may be rampant in our nation

The extent of fraud is probably unknown and unknowable without an intensive audit of voting records against other verified databases. Maybe require periodic re-registration with passport-strength identification like birth certificates. But does even extensive fraud really make any difference? We seem to keep making extraordinarily bad choices of candidates whose constitutents are probably not clever enough to register fraudulently. Vote early, vote often.  (May 29, 2011 | post #1)

Bills targeting illegal immigrants move to House

The Supreme Court's decision yesterday upholding the Arizona Legal Workers Law will likely result in many more states taking action on criminal aliens where the "sanctuary " federal government can't or won't. The only way these people who came here illegally are "marginalized " is by their own conduct. Go home, get in line to come legally, don't call us and drop dead. The majority of Americans are clearly sick of the largely Hispanic invaders of our soil. Stop hiring illegals and they will go away, as they did in Prince William County VA which passed a court-tested ordinance.  (May 27, 2011 | post #5)

Clean up after your dog

Most dog owners in my experience are perfectly content to live amid their puppies' excrement on their own property and don't care if you are offended by the uncivilized nature of their tolerance and disrepect in public. They (the owners) ought to be shot or imprisoned in a cage in a pound for the first offense. Just my opinion.  (May 27, 2011 | post #15)

Fury over sound

An effective and defensible ordinance will need careful research and drafting by engineers for the science of noise and lawyers for the law of noise. I don't expect Gettyssburg to seek either, and the bald bikers with bad teeth and badder babes on the back seat will successfully beat the raps on vagueness or other "technical " grounds.  (May 27, 2011 | post #53)

Abuser sent to prison

This is the very worst of child and spouse abuse, but _any_ abuse whether psychological or physical can escalate to become this bad. We never had this sort of thing in my family or neighborhood, and _real_ men never did it. If you see something wrong in a family, say something to someone and maybe spare the innocent some horror and pain.  (May 24, 2011 | post #15)

Avoiding another divisive battle

If gambling is such a good idea, my father often said, we're fools for getting up and going to work every day. But fools abound and shaking them down is much easier than raising anyone else's taxes. They pay gladly and think they've had fun to boot. So why should some old history hacks deprive their neighbors of a chance to find work that wouldn't otherwise exist in a rural dead spot like Gettysburg? Enjoy your battlefield, and let the gamblers enjoy their vices, while creating jobs to assist in the shakedown.  (May 22, 2011 | post #39)

Mother battles Michigan over daughter's medication

Sounds like parents too uninformed and unintelligent to make a rational decision on the best interest of their child. On the other hand, Risperdal is often used for "off-label " indications with the manufacturer's approval, and is not well studied for those conditions. I'd favor the state's meds since God's apparently weren't working very well.  (May 22, 2011 | post #1)
