32. I don't think my area is going to see any change.
Scranton just got finished electing its first all Republican city council. The nearest big city, Wilkes-Barre, has elected the same mayor (an Irish name I cannot spell at the time) several times, who sucks severely and has bankrupted the once rich city, but he keeps getting elected due to the large amount of Irish folks in the area.

Yup, I can't wait to leave this area. I really respect Rendell b/c the first time Bush came to Scranton after he became president.... Bush was speaking at Scranton University and Rendell was 5 blocks up the speak denouncing his fiscal policies.
