The weather so far today has been an absolute nightmare. It's a bitter, damp, cold, rainy day. I was the lector at 8:00 Mass at St. John's in Pittston. Uncle Frankie showed up yesterday for a while. As always it was a relatively uneventful visit. Another thing I noticed yesterday was that no one appeared to call on the phone for a very long period of time. Of course, after a while it rang too much but for just that very brief instant there was nothing going on with the phone. Of course over the course of my lifetime I've always noticed that PA. seems to have the single largest percentage of losers & undesirables than any other state but this morning really clinched it. As I was driving to Pittston, at the intersection by the Sunoco station, a car just shot right over from the opposite lane into the gas station's parking lot as if this blithering idiot owned the road. A couple of minutes later at a red light, another clown in an SUV went right through the light, apparently under the distinct impression that traffic laws didn't apply to him either.
