One of Delaware’s "sister states" is Pennsylvania, an adjoining jurisdiction that many of Delaware’s corporate lawyers return home to each night. (Now that I have a connection to the scope of this blog, I can get to the point.) Here is an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer about the budget battles now being engaged in "next door" between the Governor of the Keystone State and the Senate Majority Leader, Dominic Pileggi. The article also provides an extensive description of my big brother, whom the article refers to as "Cool Hand Dom".  In addition to fiscal realities, an aspect of the issues involved in our neighboring state’s budget imbroglio is the different perspectives of the parties, one of which focuses on the importance of reducing spending, and the other which favors looking for solutions by raising taxes.

Also, available here is a new license plate that a friend of mine just proposed to support the views of the Senate Majority Leader on the topic.
