We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
This article from The Nation describes the funny business that has been going on at Hershey - its boardroom and its famous school - for years, often to the benefit of the Republican Party, always to the benefit of Pennsylvania businessmen. The position of Attorney General in Pennsylvania has been elective for thirty-two years, but has always been held by a Republican - recently by now-Governor Corbett who showed no more interest in the Hershey shenanigans than he did in Jerry Sandusky's ways with young boys. Now a woman Democrat is likely to win the A-G job, and it might get really interesting.
