So I covered Tom Corbett tonight speaking to his "base," also known as the business executives of the Greater Philadelphiia Chamber of Commerce. Nothing wrong with our governor appearing at the event -- it's an annual "Conversation with the Governor thing -- except that he doesn't show his face in public in Philadelphia many other times. How about a question and answer session up at Temple, so he can explain to kids why their tuition is going up, as opposed to telling a friendly room of rich people how he's fighting to get Big Government off their back?
I did get to hear this pricelsss exchange:
Under pressure for his administration’s favorable treatment of natural-gas drilling, or fracking, Corbett told WHYY's Marty Moss-Coane that he has information about what chemicals the drillers use in the controversial process, even though the public does not.
