Yesterday was a two hour delay in our school district. That’s mainly because we’ve already used up all our snow days, so cancelling the whole day would have cut into spring break, and no one wants that. So in our two hours of free time, my five year old son and I did what most families did, I’m sure. We filled out NCAA tournament brackets. I did mine, and Sloan did his. If Sloan wins, he doesn’t have to put his clothes away for a week. If I win, well, there’s nothing on the table, but I’ll probably feel less guilty when I eat half his Halloween candy next year.
It seems the topic of the hour is government spending. So I’ll continue that dialogue, at least as it pertains to the state of Pennsylvania. The current governor of that state Tom Corbett is angry about $60 million of state funds that are scheduled to be spent largely out of state. It’s a result of the penalty levied by the NCAA on Penn State for its part in the recent child abuse scandal in its athletics department.
