The LuLac Edition #2790, December 9th, 2014

This weekend Pennsylvanians will gather in New York for the Annual Pennsylvania Society Dinner. Politicos of all stripes will be there too. Aspiring politicians will be having parties surrounding the main event. These parties are ways for people to network and make contacts. In 2013 then candidate Tom Wolf did not have a party wooing supporters. Instead Wolf last year donated the cost of his party to feed the hungry. The tradition will also continue this year too. Here’s Wolf’s message:
For over a century, Pennsylvanians have traveled to New York City to celebrate the holidays at Pennsylvania Society weekend. It is part of a long tradition that brings people from throughout the commonwealth together. Frances and I have always enjoyed this special weekend in New York during the holiday season.
Last year, instead of holding a fundraising reception at Pennsylvania Society as typically is the case, I contributed the cost of such a reception to Pennsylvania food banks so that those who are less fortunate than many of us may enjoy a brighter holiday. My staff and I also participated in our own small day of service on the Thursday prior to Pennsylvania Society.
This is a tradition I plan to extend. This year, I will again contribute the cost of a fundraising reception to Pennsylvania food banks and volunteer with Frances at a local soup kitchen. My staff throughout the state will volunteer for local efforts, and we invite others to join us.
Our contributions will be made to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, Philabundance, and Our Daily Bread in York. We encourage others to join us to help give those less fortunate than us a brighter holiday season.

I know the Senate Torture report is true and accurate. I know because former Mega VP Dick Cheney says its a lie! In Dicks alternate universe whats true has always been a lie and the reverse is true! $80 million for two MD specialists, were they from or in any way connected with Dick's company Haliburton? Then
another 40 million to study and report. Thats a cool 120 million wasted!!!Not to mention the High Ground which we always claimed to have a corner on.
