Katie McGinty is considering a run for the Senate.

Two weeks into a state budget impasse and six months into his first term, Gov. Tom Wolf faces the prospect of losing his chief of staff Katie McGinty to a U.S. Senate bid.

Wolf, a Democrat, confirmed during a visit Monday to Ross Elementary School that McGinty, a one-time gubernatorial primary foe, is weighing whether to seek the Democratic nomination to challenge U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey next year.

Mike Mikus, spokesman for McGinty during her last campaign, said she attended a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee function at Martha's Vineyard this weekend. She will make a decision “soon,” Mikus said.

Already seeking the nomination is Joe Sestak, a former congressman who lost an open Senate seat to Toomey in 2010. Spokeswoman Danielle Lynch said “anybody who wants to get in should get in.”

Grandparent says McDonald's Minion toy speaks profanity

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — A Seminole County family contacted Channel 9 after the Minion toy they got from a McDonald's happy meal sounded like it was speaking profanity.
The popular Minion character originated from the movie "Despicable Me" and a toy version that talks comes with McDonald's happy meals.
But when grandparent Bradley Merten ordered a happy meal from a Longwood McDonald's, he was shocked to hear the Minion toy saying what he believes is profanity.

Today's Google Doodle: Fourth of July




Google Doodle Brings Out Lawn Chairs to Celebrate 4th of July

Inspired by memories of Independence Days past

Google has brought out a set of lawn chairs — and a couple of pets — for its doodle celebrating Independence Day.

The artist, San Francisco-based Brian Kaas, explained the illustration was inspired by his own memories of July 4 block parties. “I spent a lot of my summers sitting on a lawn chair with my neighbors, friends and family,” he said. “When we would get up, the neighborhood pets would often steal our seats.”

Pull up a chair!

I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but if they could just put the word "video" in the subject

line.... Well, that would be appreciated.

I used to complain about this when I was a newbie and still had dial-up, but no one every paid any attention, so I gave up.

Thanks for bringing it up, LiberalEsto. It is annoying, IMO.

And I do have a couple of posters on ignore who post nothing but long sequences of music videos.
