Countdown – Days until Election Day!

Today’s news and information gleanings from here and there.

Today’s quote … “Gangsters – PA. State LCB. Is it still 1933 in PA. ? I think so !” –  One of several comments following this Lancaster Online article: “Top bid of $383K as Lancaster County restaurant liquor license prices skyrocket.”

Today’s second quote … “A disgrace as a cop… Hmmm, I know, she’ll make a GREAT mayor. With friends like that, who needs enemies.” – Comment following this Pennlive article about a former police officer considering a run for mayor of Harrisburg. [NOTE: Seems a sure path to becoming an “elected public servant” is to serve yourself first!]
