Pennsylvania Exports Up 18 Percent in 2008

Here's some rare good news about the state's economy under Gov. Ed Rendell: Pennsylvania businesses exported more goods in 2008 than the year before, and Pennsylvania exports have more than doubled since Rendell took office in 2003, the state's top exporting official said today.

That doesn't make up for the fact that more Pennsylvanians are leaving the state each year or that property taxes have doubled for many homeowners since Rendell took office or that more than 75,000 jobs have been lost in Pennsylvania in 2008, but let's look on the bright side: Rendell's term ends in less than two years.
