News Briefs – Volume XIV – Upside Down World

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories and this volume is chock full of stories from an upside down political world…

Brief 1:  The Keystone State (Pennsylvania) has recently announced that they are making changes to their appliance rebate program.  Pennsylvania budget deficit projects are not good so you would expect that a rebate program might be on the chopping block.  Not in Pennsylvania’s upside down world.  It was announced that the rebates are actually INCREASING, some by more than 100%.  In all fairness this is “stimulus” money (federal tax dollars versus state tax dollars). 

The Chronicles of Narnia

I first read The Chronicles of Narnia when I was in grade school.  A friend and I discovered the books in our sparse school library and competed to finish each book to see who could get the next one first.  Our competition started when we were in seventh grade and we finished them the next year.  It was a small Catholic school and we did not have Amazon back then.

The adventures that C. S. Lewis wrote about in the mythical land of Narnia offered good, clean reading.  I have read them many times over the years and when I had children, I invested in a hardcover collection.  I encouraged my kids to read them.
