Today's Google Doodle: Happy Lunar New Year



For today, Doodler Alyssa Winans illustrated a family of monkeys in the traditional fiery red which matches the lucky envelopes families give and receive on Lunar New Year — and the explosions of the firecrackers.

I just feel that she is so damaged by all the legal charges...

and now losing her license, that she can no longer serve the people of the state. I had high hopes for her when she first came in, especially on the Sandusky matter and supporting same-sex marriage. That took courage to oppose Corbett. However, it seems to me that she cannot get herself out of this legal quagmire before the next election.

I only know what I read in the papers, though. There is always be more to the story. I believe there are powerful people lined up against her and probably "out to get her," and for that I admire her determination to clear her name. The legal process is going to take a very long time and in the interim, who is running the AG's office and are there important legal matters that are not being given enough attention? Don't know the answer.

Here is a long but detailed account about her rise to power and downfall: http://www.philly.com/philly/news/politics/A_fighter_embattled.html

PA Supreme Court refuses to reinstate Kane's law license:

AND..... State senate will now "move forward" with removing her from office: http://www.pennlive.com/news/2016/02/senate_will_now_move_forward_w.html

A provision of the state Constitution, referred to as Senate or direct address, allows Gov. Tom Wolf to remove Kane after a two-thirds vote by the Senate.

It was last used — unsuccessfully — in 1891 against two state officials who had become mired in a bribery and embezzlement scandal involving Philadelphia's treasurer. Unlike Kane, neither man had been criminally charged and the Senate's then-Republican majority decided it lacked jurisdiction to oust them.


It is time to go, Ms. Kane!!

I hope he will try again.

He was very likable and ran a clean campaign. He was very gracious and had good ideas. I'm going to miss him in the debates to come, even if they never let him express his ideas.

My dad was a lifelong democrat. Mom was an occasional republican.

He loved JFK. Mom was a registered republican, but never voted. She hated all politicians equally. LOL

Today's Google Doodle: Who invented television?



http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/google-doodle-marks-90th-anniversary-1st-live-demo-mechanical-tv-by-john-logie-baird-1540032

The Doodle marks the 90th anniversary of the first public demonstration of the mechanical television. On Jan. 26, 1926, Scottish inventor John Logie Baird transmitted a moving image of his business partner’s face onto a screen, according to the Telegraph.

The image was blurred and measured only 3.5 by 2 in. (8.8 by 5 cm) but made history as the first live public broadcast.

In a 1926 review of the “televisor,” as the device was known, TIME praised Baird’s devise for permitting “looking in as well as listening in.” Broadcasting for the receiver, which was priced at £30, was set “to begin at once.”

I remember coming home from school and seeing a new television in the living room! It was 1953 and the first thing I can remember watching was the coronation of Queen Elizabeth in very grainy black and white. It was so exciting!

Did you see "The Nightly Show" last night?

"Trump Hate Bingo" (skit starts at 1:22).

We have about 15 inches in our part of western PA.

It has now been snowing for 24 hours, but it's much lighter this afternoon. No wind yet. We were predicted to get 4-7 inches.

It's really beautiful though. We live on a state road, as yet untouched at 2 p.m. There was an overnight backup on the Turnpike east of here. The governor sent the National Guard to rescue folks including the Duquesne Dukes basketball team:
