Gov. Tom Corbett said today that he has asked state Attorney General Kathleen Kane for more information regarding old email accounts of top current and former Pennsylvania officials, including members of his own administration, that contained sexual images and videos.
I agree with Ol' One-Term Tommy on this one. Anyone can send an email to any official. An official ccould even innocently open it without knowing the contents. However, if the individual opened it, and then forwarded it, then there could be a wee problem.
A 6-day-old infant is in intensive care following surgery after he was shot in the head by a stray bullet fired by a hunter Thursday evening in Indiana County.
District Attorney Pat Dougherty said it was believed the bullet only grazed the boy, but it actually went through the baby's head.
The infant was flown to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. Mr. Dougherty said doctors have reported there would not likely be a condition update until Saturday.
While I don't hunt, I have no problem with hunting, and I enjoy game killed by my friends that do hunt. What strikes me is the Commonwealth's 150 yard safety zone from roads and occupied structures, One hundered and fifty yards is probably sufficent for shotguns, but rifles? Those things are lethal for miles.
I'm sure the individual responsibe feels terrible, but I've always been taught to A: Hit your target, and B: Make sure you have an adequate backstop.
I've had to put down injured deer, sick raccoons and maimed groundhogs as part of my job, but I've always made sure I had something beyond the animal that would safely contain the bullet if I missed or the round traveled through and out the other side of the critter.
Ruth Ann Dailey then complains about the new centralized parking kiosks, even though parking revenue is up, and parking tickets are down, because she has to sometimes stand in line to pay for parking, and can't remember her license plate numbers. She'd like the old coin meters back, oh, and stay off her lawn you lousy kids!
I picked the hot peppers in the garden today, and tried my hand at some hot sauce. Step one was seeding and chopping the peppers, then simmering them in 3 cups of vinegar along with 2 teaspoons of kosher salt and four cloves of crushed garlic.
Step two was liquifying the mixture after it simmered for ten minutes.
I then poured it into hot jars and capped them. The sauce needs to age for three months in a dark place before using, so it should be ready shortly before Festivus.
What’s now clear is that the Obama administration policies have outperformed the Reagan administration policies for job creation and unemployment reduction. Even though Reagan had the benefit of a growing Boomer class to ignite economic growth, while Obama has been forced to deal with a retiring workforce developing special needs. During the 8 years preceding Obama there was a net reduction in jobs in America. We now are rapidly moving toward higher, sustainable jobs growth.”
This of course, will mean nothing to the Faux News watching crowd.
A grand jury indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Friday for abusing the powers of his office by carrying out a threat to veto funding for state prosecutors investigating public corruption — making the possible 2016 presidential hopeful his state’s first indicted governor in nearly a century.
A special prosecutor spent months calling witnesses and presenting evidence that Perry broke the law when he promised publicly to nix $7.5 million over two years for the public integrity unit, which is run by Travis County District Rosemary Lehmberg’s office. Several top aides to the Republican governor appeared before grand jurors in Austin, including his deputy chief of staff, legislative director and general counsel. Mr. Perry himself wasn’t called to testify.
He was indicted by an Austin grand jury on felony counts of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant. Maximum punishment on the first charge is five to 99 years in prison. The second is two to 10 years.
Even if exonerated, this is the end of his presidential ambitions.
