A must-read op-ed piece by Richard C. Dreyfuss, senior fellow with the Commonwealth Foundation in Harrisburg about what's really going on in Pennsylvania and how politicians are constantly trying to spin the truth to suit their purposes.
And nobody is a bigger spin-master than Gov. Ed Rendell. You can guarantee that anything Rendell supports is bad for Pennsylvania residents.
"A review of three current Pennsylvania projects reveals that many in the Rendell administration are giddy with a sense of unbridled capitalism and optimism regarding the future of the state," Dreyfuss writes. "So much so that they almost seem to minimize the role of government."
