It's true I haven't been back to Pennsylvania for awhile, but I do like to keep up with developments.
latest polls to the Democrat, a man named Wolf (I think that's him on the left.)
Perhaps in an effort to cut into that immense deficit in the polls, Corbett recently relented and agreed to Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act.
I've also noted that my old home town of Pittsburgh was twice honored on the same day: named (once again) the Most Livable City in the continental US, AND Pittsburgh drivers were named The Worst of all in smaller US cities. Great to see it's the same old 'burgh.
But there is one new wrinkle. Back when I lived there and the new Pittsburgh International Airport opened, it was the innovative pride of the industry, and most airports built since then were modeled on it. The hub of USAir, it was a bustling place with prosperous shops. Now it's nobody's hub, with shuttered gates and closed shops. But it's finding a new source of income, an innovation which could also spread: it's going to be fracked. What a fracking shame.
