I hope my readers will forgive this very short off-topic announcement, but I simply want to congratulate my big brother, Sen. Dominic F. Pileggi, who was chosen by his caucus on Nov. 20, 2006 to be the new Majority Leader of the Pennsylvania Senate. Of course I am proud of my big brother and wanted to share my exultation. Here is a non-familial connection with this blog: his Senatorial District is contiguous with the State of Delaware.
