If the Pennsylvania governors’ race were the Tour de France, the Pennsylvania Society weekend is the climb of Alpe d'Huez. It takes preparation, stamina and grit, and when/if you arrive at the top, you can look forward to several more stages before victory is yours.
Something odd happened in Washington D.C. this week. Two prominent Congressional leaders, one from each party, got together and worked out a framework for a two-year federal budget.

Congratulations to Senator Patty Murray and Representative Paul Ryan for pulling the sword out of that rock.
