The Police Log in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster has a report about a young woman from Columbia who was charged with disorderly conduct at a Manheim Township Burger King; she “became angry over a drink” at the drive-thru window.
John, you got this one wrong when you say,”Also, despite their characterization in TV ads, both are sensible, serious people genuinely interested in public service, a fact that can fall through the cracks of a rough-shaken campaign.” That’s John Baer, Philly.com columnist’s take on Pat Toomey and Katie McGinty in this column, “Some thoughts on Pa.’s very-contested Senate race.”
Wonder whether you feel the same after last night’s non-debate between McGinty and Toomey. Trying to get a person trying to be an elected public servant to answer the question is impossible. Last night’s TV event left us thinking: Is this the best we can do for US Senate candidates?
Both of these aspirants demonstrated excellence in beating around the bush and non-answering of the questions posed.
Bright moment of the “debate”: Moderator and veteran Philly TV news person, Jim Gardner.
