but the city of Scranton is in the news for all the wrong reasons lately.

All the news unfit to print, soiled with the history of anthracite, minus the stench of sulfur..broadcasting online in HTML and CSS in living color.. extending around the world, from Maine to Mexico, and Russia to the East. Updating and uploading from the deep and dark coal mines of Pennsylvania, all the way to the deepest and darkest trenches of the Milky Way galaxy. I have grand ambitions but few illusions.
