Pennsylvania in the news!: In Pennsylvania news (for those of you who don’t know, Pennsylvania is a state located somewhere between New York and Maryland), Congressman Jack Murtha heard testimony from Fayette County Area Vocational Technical School students. The high-schoolers determined that in criminal prosecutions “Everyone pleads insanity and gets off free.” The students also expressed concerns about getting jobs and "Dying from AIDS." Indeed, you are correct. I am quoting high school students.

At the same time, the Chicago Sun-Times reports here that, although it does not necessarily involve Pennsylvania, Justice Antonin Scalia apologized for the actions of an eager storm-trooper who erased a tape of one of his speeches. Scalia noted that there is little need to record one of his speeches as they all say the same thing. See here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and most of all here! See here for a picture of the justice (did I mention that he is a friend of mine) learning how to release a banded bird. And in election news, Kuensel Online reports here that "...six nominees from the nine geogs contested in the election held on June 4. The gup of Kabji geog secured a fairly comfortable victory with eight votes against five votes won by his nearest competitor, the BCCI member from Khuruthang. Gup Thuji, who is the elder brother of the fifth incarnation of Seola Trulku Jamgoen Yeshey Ngedup, is reported to be highly regarded for his extensive knowledge in traditional studies and ettiquette. Many believe that this aspect of his personality struck a concordant note with the 18-member electorate." Speaking of that, did I mention that my personality and knowledge of ettiquette and is likely to get me a seat on the Third Circuit? It will, I tell you!
