Glad I don't live in Virginia and more interesting things in the news

Whistle blowing icon Daniel Ellsberg believes that Bradley Manning's conviction is the beginning of a police state.

Is he wrong?  I am troubled by the lengths the government went to charge and convict Mr. Manning.
Easton's very popular Movies at the Mill  festival will be moving to Hugh Moore Park this year because of construction at the mill. An award winning documentary film maker will be attending this years festival
What does is say about the state of politics in Virginia if Terry McAuliffe is at almost 50% in the latest polls and he is running against the Attorney General.  I'm  sure Mr. McAuliffe is a decent man but nothing in his history as a businessman & Clinton fundraiser leads me to be believe he is qualified to be Governor of a state but then his opponent wants to ban oral sex and has received some questionable gifts. He is also linked to the current Governor who looks like he is on his way to jail and of course he ticket mate believes a child born with a disability was because their parents committed a sin.

On second thought Bill Clinton's "consigliere" is looking pretty good.

Let's all have a moment of silence for the people of The Commonwealth of Virginia.  Hopefully they will do the same for us here in Pennsylvania as we are forced to deal with Tom Corbett's re-election
The New York Daily News endorses Christine Quinn  for Mayor of New York City "because she combines the clearest understanding of the difficulties facing the city with the most extensive record of getting things done as a councilwoman and accomplished City Council speaker."
