I cracked a couple windows in the house for some fresh, spring air, cleaned and scrubbed the inside of the car and enjoyed one of the fruits of climate change:  early spring.

Owning a KIndle this article interested me.  DOJ is investigating price fixing on ebooks.  Is nothing sacred?

If you're Jewish and considering voting for Mitt Romney or any other Mormon you should think twice.  The LDS church baptizes deceased Jews.  Can you imagine having some cult induct you into their religion without your knowledge or permission?  That's the Mormon Church.  Plus they wear "magic" underwear.  WTF?

The trial of Sen. Orie continues in Pittsburgh.  Another staffer testified about doing extensive campaign work on taxpayer time.What's amazing is how many lawmakers continued doing this following Jeff Habay's conviction and those who continue doing it to this day.  Stupid is as stupid does.

Another school district is cutting curriculum instead of sports and extra curricular activities because of Gov. Gasbag's massive budget cuts.  I cannot fathom not doing away with these extras.  Have school board members forgotten what the mission of their organizations is?  Hint:  it isn't entertaining the local populace.

A lead plaintiff against ObamaCare went bankrupt because of medical bills.  Again, stupid is as stupid does...

The Rush Limbaugh scandal is widening as 98 major advertisers have pulled ads from all right wing hate radio shows.

Speaking of hate Rep. Daryl Metcalf has rejuvenated his marriage amendment and this time it would also outlaw domestic partnership benefits.  This hateful, mean spirited legislation is a direct violation of the constitution.  What happened to all that right wing talk about all legislation having to pass a constitutional test?  This one fails.  The State Government Committee holds a hearing on this Tuesday morning at 9 AM.  Be there if possible.

Also on the right wing hate front a legislator in Alabama has come out of the closet and introduced a bill limiting voting rights to white, straight, land owning men.  Maybe a liberal should introduce a companion bill limiting voting to only intelligent people.  Sen. Scott Beason would discover what its like to be disenfranchised.

Questions have been raised regarding Penn State's close relationship with the gas drilling industry but this is nothing new.  The university has always been close to the mining industries.

New reports say Bank of America defrauded the mortgage program designed to keep homeowners out of foreclosure.  Duh?  What did you expect of a vast criminal enterprise like BoA?

Jamoca wrote an article about the Voter ID law below, here is Sen. Leach speaking about it:

Wal-Mart has long hidden some of its worst labor practices behind subcontractors.  That doesn't absolve them of responsibility morally.  Theft of wages is theft, pure and simple.  I worked at one time for a company which also required us to sign false time sheets.  This is criminal.
