Two days off

Why is Pennsylvania in such bad financial shape? Just look at who did not work on Monday — as always, our state government employees didn't.

But the real standout here is PennDOT. Not only was the driver's license center on Greensburg Road closed Monday for Columbus Day, it “observed” the holiday by taking off Saturday too.

I'm surprised the center didn't close for the anniversary of the moon landing. There's always next year.
