Ballot B.S. at T-minus 12 days and counting

Still no consensus on sending corrected absentee ballots Although the state Supreme Court has affirmed, for now, that Ralph Nader won't be on Pennsylvania's November ballot, still uncertain is whether the U.S. Department of Justice can force the state to send corrected absentee ballots to overseas voters, then extend the period during which those ballots can be tabulated.

Democrats, including Gov. Ed Rendell and his underlings, say new ballots shouldn't be sent. Republicans, including U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and the legal squad from the Justice Department, say they should.

Folks, you error on the side of inclusion. You put Nader on the ballot. Nobody should vote for him, in my humble opinion. But, you got to put him on the ballot. Otherwise, Pennsylvania told 50,000 of its citizens who signed the petitions that they are meaningless.

Breaking up is hard to do.

Allegheny County gives grants for rooftop gardens

Allegheny County gives grants for rooftop gardens: "PITTSBURGH Allegheny County authorities have given grants for four rooftop gardens as part of a program to try and reduce stormwater runoff."

How nice. What is this, our latest attempt to make a spit in the ocean count?

The Steelers and Pitt's football practice fields should have been built within the flood plane. The fields were raised. I objected. Flood the darn fields.

Same too with parks built in wetlands. We are doing it and being proud as well.
