The following excerpt from an email came from the Corey O'Brien camp...

From The Hill.com:

"8 primaries where bailout support could make a difference"--By Aaron Blake

3. Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) — May 18
There’s a lot that could bring down Kanjorski, but if he goes this cycle, the bailout will have plenty to do with it. Lackawanna County Commissioner Corey O’Brien is running the most competitive primary challenge to an incumbent Democrat in the country, and the bailout has been front-and-center. Unlike with other bailout supporters, though, Kanjorski has actually defended his vote. And perhaps he has no choice, as the chairman of the House Subcommittee on Capital Markets. We’ll see how that turns out. If he makes it through the primary, the general election won’t be a cinch either, with 2008 opponent Lou Barletta waiting in the wings.

Could the young upstart actually knock off the gruff, old incumbent? Or will Lou have to do it?

I'll use my Yoda voice for this one...

Lou will! Lou will!

This just in from the Luzerne County GOP...

Hey buddy, long time no talk to.

Just wanted to respond to your recent post on the number of engines in service. The only engines in service when the manning is at 12 are engine 1 at hq, ladder 1 at hq and engine 2 at hollenback. Rescue 7 is currently being used as engine 2 because of an accident to engine 2. That along with the two ambulances is the only thing in service.

Thanks, I didn't notice that Rescue 7 got dinged up.

That always amazes me, that our apparatus is involved in so many MVAs. There's probably a lot of things that go unnoticed by me during a busy, trying day, but firetrucks with lights and sirens firing away is not, is never one of them.

Playing chicken again, were they? Those silly, silly four-wheelers. When will they ever learn?

By the way, I got my hands on one of the fliers your former coworkers were distributing to the residents throughout the neighborhood surrounding South Station.

Lame, man. Very, very lame.

Hey, Gage and Taylor will be hitting town on the 27th, so feel free to stop on by if you're interested. Those two take after me in that they've got some serious capacity for remembering things they deem to be important.

And as you know, you are their #1 Hose Dude, hands down.
