William D'Elia, a reputed mobster from northeastern PA, pled guilty to lesser charges yesterday in a possible runup to the Louis DeNaples trial. DeNaples, to whom a slots casino license was given despite his long rumored alleged mob ties, has been charged with perjury. The D'Elia deal leads one to believe he will testify against DeNaples. Anyone want a good deal on the Mount Airy Casino? I'll bet it goes on the market.
Chelsea Clinton thinks her Mom will be a better president than even her dad. Some are saying "close, but no cigar." Sorry for the bad joke, I just felt this urge to inject a little levity into the scene.
Big Mo passed away in Pittsburgh. The yellow footed tortoise was the Pittsburgh Zoo's oldest resident. Soup's on folks.
I seem to have an irreverent attitude this morning.... In more serious news the Philadelphia Sheriff has put a freeze on home foreclosures to provide time for homeowners to seek assistance before losing their homes due to predatory lenders. The Black community in Philadelphia was especially victimized by these immoral bankers and is hard hit by foreclosures. Sheriff Green ran on a platform of providing relief to these residents. Glad to see he's sticking by his word.
A car transport on I-80 in Venango County was searched and $274,000 was found hidden in two cars on the carrier. Someone explain to the driver that I-80 doesn't have tolls...yet.
