(A brief discussion twixt Baer & Baer's editor, a/k/a BE)
JB: Yo, boss, see that AP story on Corbett's schedule.
JB: You've got a two-track mind.
BE: Well, both stories are more interesting than anything Corbett could be doing.
JB: Yeah, well, to refresh your mammary, AP went to court on a right-to-know case and won the right to know how Corbett spends his time.
JB: Turns out he spent the first four months of 2013 meeting twice a-week on his reelection campaign next year: 29 meetings in restaurants, private homes, law firms, private clubs and in D.C. and Chicago.
JB: I don't know. Frackers? Point is, despite all evidence to the contrary, the guv seems to be taking his reelect seriously.
BE: Well, given his polling numbers and his policy successes, which as far as I can tell are so far limited to getting two budgets on time without new taxes, he should be.
JB: Most of the details of his schedule are redacted but AP also reports he spent "significant" time meeting with "big-city journalists" and doing call-in cameos for talk radio.
BE: Big-city journalists, eh?
JB: I assume Dom Giordano.
BE: So nothing juicy?
JB: Well, there was a Flyers game he attended and a private dinner party with Pittsburgh hockey legend Mario Lemieux.
BE: It's good to be king.
JB: Which is why he's in meetings figuring out how to stay on the throne.
