    Good morning. Hope a warm sun is shining on all winter weary TODers. We are now down to FIVE Dem candidates for PA governor. The most lefty of the group dropped out yesterday because he didn’t have enough $$ to complete. We have one very wealthy candidate, Tom Wolf, so we’ll see if money rules the day in the end on May 20. Anyone of the remaining Dems would make a better governor than Corbett (who wouldn’t?) so I’ll work hard for anyone who emerges from the pack. I’m finding it difficult to keep up with all the many events, speeches and offenses going on in Ukraine and feel behind the information eight ball every day. I pity those who don’t have TOD to come to. Given the state of our media, they would be hopelessly informed.

      Uhhh…”uninformed.” Too early for my sleepy brain.

        Knew what you meant. Amazing how the brain reads things the way they are meant rather than the way they are sometimes writtne. When I saw your correction I said to myself, “Self, what is she talking about?” Looked back and saw you wrote informed, but I had automatically read it as uninformed.

          Morning, Japa.
          Yea, that’s one reason I rarely go back and do corrections; my brain always reads the ‘right’ thing, then I do the ‘Huh?’ at someone’s correction and double back to see for myself. :grin:

      G’morning Chips & TOD! Morning Jackie :) Congrats J4O on #1.

      Yes Bob has been doing an excellent job of keeping us informed – at this point I’m mostly reading his posts whenever I can to stay abreast. I can no longer rely on Twitter to get accurate info – just a bunch of scattered opinions, usually negatively directed at the US.

      Morning JackieG! Know how you feel about Ukraine info. Now I’m simply trying to keep abreast of basic developments.

    • March 14, 2014 at 11:43 am

      99ts, it’s galling, frustrating, enraging and terrifying that voters in this country keep electing people who deliberately set out to hurt them. Reality just doesn’t intrude in the minds of rote R voters. Somewhere in their brain they developed a prejudice against Dems based on something their great grandmother told them and, by God, even the most blatant mismanagement, corruption or deliberate cruelty from Republicans won’t change their mind. If you knock on the door of some R voters and tell them what the Dem candidate stands for, they agree with everything, then tell you they CAN’T vote for a Dem because they never have. The stupid burns so much, it’s enough to make sit on the ground and weep.

        As one of the comments at BJ noted the GOPers will do anything to bring down the President – including real damage to their own people. Those graphs show which states care about their children – and it sure isn’t the “pro life” states.
